In designer Heidi Handler's world, contrast plays a major role. Strong and soft hues are fused, metallics are worn in a casual manner, and simple and complex are bosom buddies.
Lovenia, named after Heidi's great-grandmother, is the designer's debut collection and it's nothing short of perfection. Drop-waist dresses ooze 1920s sophistication, and drape the body in a nonchalant way. Wholesale prices for the collection, sold at Gail Rothwell in East Hampton, NY, range from $454 to $1,074. As Heidi sees it, Jean Harlow and Edie Sedgwick are having tea at Tamara de Lempicka's before catching a Josephine Baker show in Paris. How I wish I could be there!
