When the Old Hollywood look hit, well, young Hollywood in ’05, everyone thought long silk dresses, chiffon caftans, and elaborate side-swept updos would stick. But much to the dismay of the fashion industry and young girls with Grace Kelly dreams, the look faded away in exchange of a more grungy, post-modern style.
But if BreeLayne’s debut collection is any indication, the look may be making a comeback—this time with a fresh, cool-girl take. With Indian and vintage-inspired luxe wide-legged separates, grand floor-length velvet T-shirt dresses, open-backed leather jumpsuits, and fur and tassle collared coats, the line fuses classical femininity with androgynous strength, offering a new, updated take on “effortless glamour.”
So it only makes sense that the brand recruit resident It Girl Langley Fox, the artist great-granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway, to star in its lookbook. “It’s funny. When I started designing this collection, I knew I wanted to shoot with Langley because she has this sexy and quirky edge—which i’m ALL about,” says BreeLayne. “This collection is really unique, so I envisioned Langley because she is just that. On top of that, I try to work with people who reflect the same mentality as I do—we’re both artists all around, fire signs, it was the perfect fit.”
