Alice Yim Raina Dress & Autumn Winter 2012 Collection

Hot on the heels of Peter Pilotto’s spring prints yesterday comes today’s outfit post showing Alice Yim’s Raina dress.  One of the few designers I take a break from my monochromatic norm for, Yim’s Raina dress (featured before on the blog in black, image below) also comes in a delicate dragonfly print, a theme running through her spring collection this year.

The Raina dress is a beautifully classic design in the onyx (black) colour yet the print version transports the dress into the romantic and ethereal category.  This is a perfect dress for the end of summer – the last rays of warmth, the last crisp but sunny evenings outside…

As we move towards autumn, Alice Yim’s collection for winter 2012/13 provides some good transitional options.  A palette of neutral tones, rusty browns, navy and black is broken up by the melancholia print – circular swirls set amongst a fabric dreamscape.  (Click on the image below to enlarge.)  My favourite pieces are the Pia wool and leather vest and the Lucia blouse – a long-sleeved silk Georgette top with lace shoulders.

A high quality collection of leather, wool and lace with masculine overtones – I’m ready to step out of silky Raina and into autumn textures already.  Another lovely collection from Alice Yim NYC.

Wearing: Raina dress in dragonfly print, Alice Yim.  Belt, COS.  Heels, Mango.

    I love cos sO much! It’s such a good shop!

    • Cos is a store I really miss browsing through and trying on clothes in store. They have online shopping now which is great but I much prefer the in store experience. Great for basics, especially white shirts.

  2. Look at that! You look like a precious stone in this Alice Yim dress! Bravo to the designer, the photographer for capturing your soft femininity and delicate features. Absolutely wonderful collection, Sarah!

  3. The watercolor print of this dress is just beautiful – I am also really loving this length and silhouette on you…it suits you so well.

    If ever there was a reason to step out of your neutral comfort zone, this dress is it. I fell in love with Alice Yim thanks to your blog and this dress has only reaffirmed by adoration of her designs!

    The dress is beautiful, for me the stunning print makes it. I like the longer length you look unfairly elegant and haunting.

    I share you passion for Alice’s designs! This latest collection is her best yet in my opinion. Seeing how lovely this dress is reminds me- I need to follow up on a blouse I was going to buy!
