Fall Preview: Baci! (+ A Trunk Show Summer Sale)

Baci fall 02

We have been carrying Baci, one of our most popular designers, for five years now and every spring and fall we are so excited for the new season’s collection.  We’re just over a week away from the arrival of the fall line, so we wanted to share a preview of this casually elegant customer favorite.

Baci works with natural materials as much as possible, particularly washable silk, cotton, linen, wool, and leather. The result is a relaxed look that’s still chic — refined but unfussy.

The collections are designed, curated and produced in Florence by Batia (“Baci”) Rutenberg, a renowned international fashion designer, who draws inspiration from the nature, colors, and lifestyle of the Italian countryside.

Baci is also Italian for kisses, which, the designer says, “is the ideal metaphor for the way our clothing delicately drapes the body.”

Love the look, but want something you can wear now?  You are in luck! Next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we’ll be hosting a Baci Trunk Sale on Summer Merchandise — all new Baci merchandise that we have not had in the store before — all at 30 percent off!
