Velvet adds a bit of good-humored gravitas to your look. As if you had borrowed Sherlock’s smoking jacket. And dared to wear it with a casual chic that just suits the silk and jewels you wear beneath. Find your velvet persona at Jane’s Vanity.
But first, be sure to watch “Cocktails with a Curator” from the Frick Collection in New York City. From 2020 to 2021, a line-up of curators brought the museum to the public with an entertaining series of 65 online chats about the Collection’s works of art. Each 30-minute episode also featured an interesting cocktail and how to make it. In particular, curator Xavier F. Salomon was a star in his own collection of splendid jackets and robes. His great style, combined with his gravelly voice and deep knowledge, created a cozy moment in the midst of the pandemic. We salute him and his colleagues. As Mr. Salomon would say, basso profondo: “Cheers.”
So make your own statement in a velvet jacket from Gilda + Pearl. We are in love with their Sultan Garland Robe in choice of short or long. Both are constructed of burgundy silk velvet and entirely lined in brick red silk. The short version is perfect as a cocktail jacket. The longer version, with its circle skirt, is handy for twirling. Both will make you feel embraced by possibility.
Live the loungey life, in silk velvet from Jane’s Vanity.
