Winters are spent hibernating, resting up and recharging, planning and starting things anew. And then, every spring, the world awakens. Color reintroduces itself into our lives. The emergence of blooms and buds changes our landscape.
Our design team spent early winter in the final stages of developing spring dresses for our Collection. They looked to the pansy—a garden flower—for design inspiration, creating textured embroideries with a floral sentiment.
For this collection refresh, we’ve also modified a handful of existing garments for a better fit and experience. Have a look below.
The Rinne Dress
With its fitted bodice and full pleated skirt, the Rinne Dress has been a popular style since its debut last spring. Feminine and flattering, we’ve made it more functional by extending the front opening—which now runs the entire length of the front placket with secure and stylish gunmetal snaps.
Tunics provide a nice alternative for an “in between” length. They allow for more coverage and can be worn with pants or layered over a skirt. Our design team has created two new tunic options from the Rinne and Ashley Dresses. With its open front, the hand-sewn Rinne Tunic can be worn as a layered vest or snapped closed for a more classic look.
The machine-sewn Ashley Tunic creates a casual alternative with pockets, one of our must-have details in a garment. The A-line shape has a slight swing to it and the soft collar creates a beautiful detail to this basic style.
The Pencil Skirt
The Pencil Skirt is one of our few Collection styles made from lightweight jersey. This lighter weight of cotton offers a soft, silky feel. The characteristics of the fabric allow it to stretch and relax as you wear it, and the kick-pleat creates more room for movement. For this hand-sewn skirt, we’ve updated the waistband to a wide, satin-smooth option. The skirt has a snug fit that shows off your curves, and we’ve modified the pattern creating more shaping in the hips for greater comfort and fit.
The Tailored Shirt
This top debuted in our fall Bridal + Evening Collection and is our take on a classic button-up top. The construction seams of this pullover style have been modified—a detail that isn’t noticeable from the outside but allows for a lower price. The front placket has top-stitched accents—showcasing the classic Alabama Chanin hand-stitched look.
