Welcome to Fashion Bytes, a cheat sheet for your favorite runway designers. From style inspirations to behind-the-scenes scoops, here’s everything worth knowing at New York Fashion Week Spring 2018.
The brand: Alice + Olivia
The history: When the first Alice + Olivia collection debuted in 2002, the event took place at the storied Russian Tea Room and featured celebrity models (such as Paris Hilton) wearing hand-painted designer pants … and not much else. The perfectly cut trousers sold out fast and paved the way for a full women’s collection including clothes, shoes and accessories. Fast-forward 15 years, and the Alice + Olivia brand has kept its butt-boosting pants, its life-of-the-party vibe and its gallery cred, enlisting collaborators like the estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat for limited-edition pieces.
