Modern day elegance that is ladylike but girly is hard to master. When you are the granddaughter of Grace Kelly’s clothier, it might be a little bit easier.
Growing up in the business (she is fourth generation) of course influenced her, ever since she was a little girl she wanted to be involved. This season Katie Ermilio plays with vibrant reds and pinks alone and mixed playfully together along with royal blues and creamy ivorys.
Pieces are easy throw-ons like her cream short suit with deep blue velvety collar and pink slack/crop top suit but also more dolled up like the stunning short sleeved pink gown. Don’t be fooled, there is a bit of riskiness with her tied open back dresses and one with a sheer top. From inception she wants her pieces to be wearable and long lasting but it doesn’t hurt that they are so pretty and with a pop.
