A Winter Passion

Citrus somehow defines the holidays. The new crops are in, and their bright clear colors are a perfect foil for the winter darkness. They jazz up the season, In shades of orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, and grapefruit. And answer our longing for a certain boldness, a simple beauty, a little magic. Every year, we fall in love again with the colors of citrus. Jane’s Vanity shares our winter passion.

Underneath our sweaters and flannels, our hearts are sunny. Because we’re wearing the sheer orange Calais lace of Lise Charmel’s Sexy Baroque Lingerie Set. Its arabesque swirls make us feel like dancing. Our pairing would be the sheer citrusy print of Vannina Vesperini’s Vegetal collection of matching camisole, gown, and robe. As lovely as an orchard breeze.

We find a mellow winter bliss in the color of chartreuse. Its sophisticated lemon/lime feels festive and goes with everything. Grazia’Iliani’s Chartreuse Floral Pajama adds white blossoms that layer invitingly with Morpho + Luna’s Bianca Linen Robe. Or, we love the Merle Noir Chartreuse Silk Camisole, a jewel, with its enticing hand-sewn appliques of aubergine purple lace. Breathtaking with black--we like it peeking out beneath the Bibi Jet Black Chain Silk Slip Dress from Olivia Von Halle.  

And we celebrate a citrus grand finale with Klements’s Longline Silk Smoking Jacket. Its reversible prints take us from dark to light in rippling orange, yellow, and green. We are entranced by this single handy garment that is warm, unexpected, luxurious, versatile, and pretty. 

A sweet zest of citrus is our winter passion. Feel its zing. Wear it with style. Jane’s Vanity wishes you a season of joy.
