First Fashion: In With the New

Redva (1) Frien (2) Cuttt (3)

The best way to break out of a fashion rut is to give your go-to brands a break and try something different. Today I’m finding inspiration in these three lines new to Shopbop.

(1) Valentino’s elegant sensibility and attention to detail are seen in RED Valentino, a contemporary offshoot of the venerable maison. The flattering silhouette and lace accents of this little black dress are sure to make the wearer feel like a true bella donna. RED Valentino – Sleeveless Dress with Lace Detail

(2) With a name borrowed from a Bob Dylan song, Friend of Mine clothing has become a favorite in its native Australia for its unique blend of femininity and rockabilly. I’ll take my cues from the brand’s aesthetic and pair this soft silk button-down with tough leather shorts. Friend of Mine – Brenda Bodysuit

(3) Yigal Azrouël launched Cut 25 this fall, promising a younger, edgier version of his main collection. And with an avant-garde print and unexpected shoulder cutouts, it looks like he delivered. Cut 25 – Decay Print Dress
