alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet is a brand that allows women to express their personal style and during New York Fashion Week at the Roots Studio designer Stacey Bendet brought a modern bohemian field of dreams to life in a series of nine transportive sets. Once guests arrived inside the venue, they were presented with alice + olivia’s first vignette- “Field of Dreams.” Volkswagen further enhanced the dream-like vision with the iconic Beetle Final Edition, wrapped in the alice + olivia hero print for Spring 2020. Guests were able to partake in the model set experience with pictures inside and around the VW Beetle.
The Spring Summer 2020 collection introduced an exclusive collaboration between alice + olivia designer Everard Best, (EV BRAVADO) the designer behind Murder Bravado and Who Decides War menswear labels. Best is a rising fashion star known for his singular style of hand-embroidered, dyed and distressed denim.

Across the alice + olivia Spring Summer 2020 collection were voluminous sleeves, trouser legs, and skirts, echoing a classic sportswear and couture vibe. While color blocking was highlighted with dramatic and bold new shapes in this collection. There was also a dose of flower power with square neck cuts and tea-length skirts with paisley fabric. The combinations highlighted silhouettes and elevated constructions which balanced dramatic volume with day-to-day favorites.
