Last month, I had the pleasure of styling a video shot for Habiller Blog at the Improv’d shop in the Meatpacking District with Makeup Artist extraordinaire, Brenda Momperousse and videographer, Ashley Benzwie. Not only did we have a ton of fun shooting together, but we all fell in love with the Improv’d Spring collection. Perfect for the downtown girl who drapes herself in pieces from the likes of Helmut Lang and Alexander Wang, the collection – a culmination of design genius of Sam Ben-Avraham (founder of Atrium) and Valentino Vettori (formerly of Diesel) – combines basics as well as more avant garde pieces to complete any urban fashion girl’s wardrobe (with a few extra dashes of color and texture play thrown in)!
Some of my favorite pieces (all available at www.revolveclothing.com) include the Black Blazer with Leather Trim – picture this over a pair of bright blue skinny pajama pants and a drapey white tee for a a sexy take on a suit that can take you well into the evening…
I’m also digging this beautifully draped Blue Cloud blouse (pair this white legging jeans and a bright pair of flats for the perfect summer casual night out look)….
And lastly, the Drape Front Dress (which can accommodate both tall and petite girls as well). Add a dose of color with an orange or yellow statement necklace – OR – if you’d like to tone down the body-consciousness, dress this look down with a drapey vest to bring it into more informal, casual wear territory.
Improv’d is located at 819 Washington Street between Little West 12th Street & Gansevoort. Swing by next time you head over for a walk to the Highline!
