Blue is my absolute most favorite color and I can’t live without prints, so it’s natural that I would gravitate toward this very special blue and white double face jacquard when fabric shopping. The speckled woven pattern is reminiscent of confetti and since it’s double-faced, I decided to break up the blue a bit with some colorblock paneling at the waist and pockets. I love how this dress feels very architectural and structured when worn. The lycra also keeps it quite comfortable and wrinkle-resistant. (It also gives me another reason to wear my blue patent leather Miu Mius!)
I photographed the dress during a stroll on the The High Line, one of my favorite spots in New York.
