We’ve just discovered Hellessy and are swooning over the Spring 2016 looks. Founded in 2012 by Sylvie Millstein, HELLESSY is a day-to-evening designer collection focused on the modern philosophy of dressing women whose lives are organized around a need for pared-down elegance that is versatile and thoughtfully constructed.
Millstein melded her multi-cultural background, expertise in high fashion and experience as a design-driven New Yorker, to create a collection of luxurious staples that celebrate independence, intelligence and beauty. The collection is made in America, and integrates impeccable fabrics and detailing with superb fit, precise construction, and wearability.
Charlotte Rampling, the personification of 60s gamine, was the inspirational starting point for Sylvie Millstein’s relaxed, boyish direction for Fall 2016. Off the shoulder tops, blouses with exaggerated sleeves, tailored jumpsuits and shearling coats are riding the trends – but not without that charming, Hellessy twist.
