PreFall 2016: Alice + Olivia
Alice + Olivia decided for PreFall that their chic bohemian girl was going to be a bookworm. Fashion for Nerds, and not just any nerds, but library dwelling female nerds, like Hermione Granger. Who says the nerd revolution hasn’t hit every corner of the internet?
So even though one might argue that this collection feels like it’s really only “bookish” or “nerdish” because the models are standing next to a prop bookcase, well, you may be right, but that doesn’t make them any less awesome. Even the most dowdy of Ravenclaws would be taken in by these. The denim wave of retro is still fresh, and the rainbow floral embroidery keeps it from getting too 80s retro trend. There are a few overboard into the 70s moments, including a crochet vest that I swear my mother owned when she was went through the decade the first time. But the 1970s rainbow paisley wide legged jumpsuit? I don’t care how retro clash it might seem, sign me up.
