DESIGNER: Adrienne Vittadini
INSPIRATION: "Just because you're a certain age doesn't mean you have to wear elastic pull-on pants," company president Mary Gleason told StyleList.
"Our woman is 40 and up, she wants to follow fashion, and is a size 10 or 12."
TOP LOOKS: Knit skirts covered in full-on paillettes; great roomy sweaters; beaded tops that won't cost and arm and a leg
ACCESSORIES: Knit scarves and berets; leather gloves
WHO WAS THERE: Fashion editors
WHAT WE THOUGHT: There is really a lot of style packed into this bridge-priced designer collection. It's chock-full of sweaters and knits of every type, as well as office-appropriate separates that can transition easily into after-work chic ensembles.
Classics were kicked up a notch with modern proportions and stylish embellishments for a collection that was far from boring.
