Last season when we attended the Gilded Age presentation we hoped we'd eventually get to see a women's line come from the brand. Though the infiltration of Ralph Lauren-alikes can sometimes be overwhelming, in the end it gives a strong identity to wholesome American fashion and that can't hurt. Gilded Age's first women's collection looks a little more grunge than say, Trovata. The worn-thin flannel shirts, levis-inspired oversized denim, and square, low-slung shorts reminded us of our days as an adolescent in the nineties. For the less boyish Gilded Age customers, they put out some cotton frocks and thin floral-printed separates that are more prep-school friendly.
