Profile

Designer Jill Stuart’s fashion embodies the old-fashioned notion of “sugar and spice and everything nice.” Her shop’s vintage-inspired, ultra-feminine clothes make girls of all ages yearn for prom, or for a supporting role in an Audrey Hepburn movie. The five collections a year—fall, holiday, spring, summer, and resort—include blouses and skirts, some dressmaker-tailored suiting and even a bit of denim, but Stuart really concentrates on (and excels at) dress design. With references to 1930s gauzy ball gowns, Victorian mores, and even a Goth attitude, the dresses incorporate lacy appliqués and cutouts, ribbon trimming and intricate beaded details; in particular, Stuart favors pink, printed chiffons, fitted tops and full, layered, petticoat-like skirts. The dresses mix a welcome dash of naughty spice in with all the nice; one could imagine Courtney Love in a fetching, frilly model, and Stuart’s tremendous Japanese following reflects her almost baby-doll Harajuku look. Find vintage apparel on the store’s lower level, culled from the turn of the 20th century to the eighties, but with the same aesthetic that guides the ready-to-wear line upstairs.
