Last week while I was in New York, Preston Davis, editor of Keep It Chic, kindly invited me to attend a Pop Up with her featuring collaborations from ARossGirl and Aerin. Partnering with a handful of special designers, Amanda Ross, of ARossGirl, and Aerin Lauder curated the ultimate shop full of unique treasures and finds, all elegantly presented at Hayward House.
Soler x ARossGirl and Aerin teamed together to design a beautiful dress with large-scale flowers meandering over an ivory silk. This looked lovely on Amanda. I couldn’t take my eyes off the unglazed porcelain rose necklaces by artist Maria Moyer that both Aerin and Amanda wore loosely tied with a leather strip. They were stunning in their simplicity…also available as a ring. A mini H-Crossbody bag and a zippered pouch from Hayward shined with the ARossGirl creative touch when rendered in a silk brocade. A tightly edited selection of Aerin shoes in a creamy palette embellished with whipstitching, embroidery, or leather flowers were refined and elegant, like all things Aerin.
Several other collaborations completed the ultimate Pop Up shop of the chic de la chic – quoting Amanda Ross’ often coined phrase.
