Monday Muse: Tarot & Fairy Tales Inspire Alice + Olivia Spring 2017

Fans of Alice + Olivia already know that Staceface is a print that’s featured in the brand’s collections no matter the season and no matter where designer Stacey Bendet is finding inspo. It is, after all, a cartoon version of Bendet herself — and customers can’t get enough of her and her signature round sunnies. For spring 2017, shoppers will be able to get a piece of Stace for themselves: Alice + Olivia is launchign eyewear, which includes those signature round frames as well as cat-eye frames and other oversized options. Those new additions to the A+O offering were on display along with the latest outing of maxis, separates and more, which drew on Bendet’s newfound fascination with tarot (her friend, Lola Schnabel, had been working on an art project involving tarot) and fairy-tale romance.

While Staceface is a perennial favorite, so are the long, sleek maxis that Bendet herself is often wearing on her own Instagram. This season, that silhouette was offered in stripes and a mishmash of patterns. The romance came courtesy of intricate prints in sun-bleached shades of sepia and indigo. It was a touch gypsy, though there were other options (tailoring, coats) that were more in the vein of That ’70s Show. It was an amalgum, to be sure, but that sort of magpie mentality made for an eclectic outing that offered something for seasoned A+O fans as well as anyone looking to inject their wardrobes with fun and whimsy.

Patterns from the tarot deck appeared on blouses and filmy tops, but the big sellers from spring 2017 are sure to be the embellished cutoffs (Coachella, anyone?) and the rainbow patterned purse, which we’ll be scouting come Fashion Week.
