Alice + Olivia Spring 2016 Collection

Alice + Olivia’s Spring 2016 collection by Stacey Bendet embodies the quintessential 1970’s goddess.  The collection takes you away to a location where the sun is setting amongst the fiery orange skies on to the sandy hills.  Imagine being in a desert with tumbleweed by your feet and a light breeze in the air.  Envision vibrant colors, embroidered pieces, matching sets, beaded dresses, lace tops, wide leg pants and much more.  Bendet channels her inner flower child with her latest designs.  Boldly printed flowers are splashed on most of the pieces.  Her collection has a wide range, offering something for everyone.  Each piece can be defined as light and airy despite the bright, vivid colors.  It was easy to fall in love with the theme of Alice + Olivia’s Spring 16 line.  Take a look at some of the collection to be released in February 2016.

 

Matching separates was a huge theme in the collection.  Filled with embroidered, floral, striped and solid sets, separates are continuing to dominate the Spring 16 season.
