While poking around Net-A-Porter the other day, I discovered an amazing new designer that I'd never heard of before...even though he launched in 2007. Vineet Bahl's interesting textiles yet classic cuts had me at download. His artisanal pieces offer so much visual interest but are also easy to wear. Clearly Vineet modernized his Indian roots for today's uptown girl.
Case in point...my new favorite top (that I don't own) and its day and night outfit options.
The possibilities are endless with a sweet shirt like this one. The plaid nods toward rustic while the sequins and silk keep it girly. Play up the rough 'n tumble side with cords, ankle boots and an oversized cardigan for a chic but casual daytime look. Go glam at night with a girlie skirt (Also by Vineet), gilded clutch and subtly sparkly shoes. And with so much visual interest, there's no need for jewelry...the top is blingy enough!
If this top doesn't strike your fancy, maybe some of his other pieces will.
Bonus news: Net-A-Porter isn't the only online stockist for Vineet Bahl. Anthropologie also carries several of his jackets and dresses as part of their Made In Kind line.
It might be time to see one of these pieces in person...hmmmm...let me know if you get your hands on one.
