It’s hard to look at Katie Ermilio’s spring 2012 collection and not want to get in touch with your feminine side. Each piece feels as though it stepped out of a more refined time, an aesthetic that is not surprising given tailoring is in Ermilio’s blood: she’s the granddaughter of Grace Kelly’s personal clothier.
Ermilio’s design signature is marked in sharp lines countered with soft drape. For spring, she matched fitted bodices and full skirts, creating a throwback feel that could have walked out of the 1950s, but Ermilio is every bit the modern designer. Peeks of skin and unexpected layers are of-the-moment, perfect for the graceful, contemporary woman.
Wear one of her frocks to the next wedding on your summer agenda. Or, brides-to-be, do your bridesmaids a favor and pick a Katie Ermilio dress for your best girls to wear on your big day.
