Swish and Swagger
Imagine yourself as a Belle Epoque beauty in a “swagger portrait:” voluptuous, a bit outrageous, definitely “arrived.” And dressed in something frothy. Italian painter Giovanni Boldini set the mark for society portraits (and lovely nudes) that continue to charm a century later. Perhaps it is the sexiness of his flamboyant brushwork that earned him the title “The Master of Swish.” Jane’s Vanity matches his jaunty style with loungewear that strikes a pose.
Create a Gilded Age mood in Gilda & Pearl’s Golden Hour collection. Chartreuse silk is offset by shimmering golden lace appliqué for the Slip, Camisole Set, and versatile tie-front Top.
Prepare to emote in Vannina Vesperini’s Carla Silk Gown in pale blue stretch silk that sweeps to the ankle. Show off the deep scoop neck, fully functional blush ribbon lace-up back, and blush lace appliqué at hem and high slit.
Stand tall in the simple shape and breathtaking color of Gilda & Pearl’s Sophia Fuchsia Silk Slip Dress. Add to its grace with Vannina Vespirini’s new Fuchsia Sweater, a fuzzy little pullover that sits casually on your shoulders and stops right at your hip bone.
Show a little leg in Dana Pisarra’s Luxor Wool Silk Gown. Its elaborate lace appliqué is entirely lined through the front body and transparent at back, leg, and hem.
And, for a very private portrait, wear merely a ribbon ‘round your neck and stay-up stockings ‘round your legs. Just in, a satisfying assortment of thigh-high hosiery from Barazendeh Paris and Italian design house Maria La Rosa.
Frame your persona, with a splash of dash from Jane’s Vanity.
