Attersee Debuts Collection II

Who: Attersee

With streamlined silhouettes and a balanced color palette of rich neutrals, Collection II will take the stress out of your daily routine as each piece can be easily dressed up or down. Wear the tuxedo-bib tunic as a layered under a blazer to the office and over the label’s fluid drawstring trousers for dinner.

Figue Launches Resort 2022

Who: Figue

What: Resort 2022 Collection

Where: Online at Figue.com

Why: Figue, the go-to brand for stylish jet-setters in need of vacation wear, was recently bought out by its biggest fan: fashion designer and entrepreneur, Liz Lange. October 12th marks the debut of Lange’s first collection. Longtime fans of the Figue need not fret, as the breezy kaftans and romantic florals for which it has become synonymous will not be going anywhere. Lange plans to build out Figue’s offerings, launching additional silhouettes and a line of accessories. For Resort 2022, Lange played with patterns, and said, “Cher is my springboard this season. She takes flamboyance and theatricality and makes them totally chic, effortless and compelling. This is the magic of Cher: never boring, always dramatic and stylish” said Lange. With retail pricing from $295-$1,000, there is something for everyone in search of a little wanderlust, whether you’re sunning in Cannes or barbecuing in the backyard.

RE/DONE Joins The Jean Redesign


What: The Jean Redesign project

This newest effort is their most sustainable original denim worn by the RE/DONE community to date. The collection consists of three pairs of jeans designed with responsibly sourced 100% organic cotton, recycled hardware, bio-based patches, biodegradable packaging, and also comes with a unique QR code for the pair of jeans that allows the wearer to access a full traceability report. Circularity has never been so chic.
