Lots of new items to admire on the JV website. A quick perusal produces a happy double-take. Because here is a second chance. That piece we missed is back in a new way. As Yogi says, it’s Déjà Vu all over again!
Why, why didn’t I buy the Emma Harris beach pajamas last year? So sexy, so versatile, so…navy blue. They were a traveler’s dream with their lace-inset T-back camisole and slouchy trousers (with pockets!). Sleepable, danceable, wearable on the plane, even. They sold out in a flash. I could kick myself all the way to the bar. But now I don’t have to. Because, as if by magic, the Elsa is back in luscious teal. Pair it with a matching Lingerie Set and lace-dripping kimono-style Robe.
Speaking of camisoles, how can one stop at a single Camisole Set from Vannina Vespirini? The Curaco design mixes a colorful saturated silk body with a witty zing of contrasting lace trim. The shape is incredible, so flattering and flirtatious. Each element of the camisole, from strap placement, to drape, to length showcases what’s underneath…and the little matching shorts seem designed for prancing. This time around, JV presents the Ruby & Denim model, with red stretch silk body and navy trim. Just in time for fall.
Vannina has also produced a new version of her invigorating Schiap Dress, just for JV! After a successful season in burgundy silk last year, VV makes this versatile dress new again in Rêve, a dusty pale blue. For sparkling winter parties, match it with a little “ice.” Silver foxes take note.
But, sometimes a piece cannot be repeated. When a Karolina Laskowska Lingerie Set appears, it is time to make our move. These fleeting wonders are made from irreplaceable “deadstock” of lace and trim from the world’s finest producers. Each unique scrap of lace has a story, a blessing. How to choose between the Danainae, with its whisper-weight pink Chantilly lace and soft dimensional orange and pink trim, and the Morphinae Plunge Lingerie Set in Sophie Hallette black lace with flashes of sapphire and copper? Arrrrgh.
Just be unforgettable and irreplaceable, darlings. With a little help from the unique world of Jane’s Vanity.
