For those not in the know, Jonathan Simkhai is one of New York’s hottest designers right now, whose luxury ready-to-wear has gained him quite the red carpet following. For his second exclusive to Ounass capsule, Simkhai has created a collection of exquisite pieces to satisfy the multifaceted needs of the modern woman’s wardrobe.
At the heart of Simkhai’s designs is a desire to “embolden women with confidence and ease” of which his figure-loving silhouettes are a testament. Take his dramatically fluid tailoring, that effortlessly straddles elevated daytime and eveningwear in the finest curve skimming silk. This season served up as a cold-shoulder navy deconstructed shirt, perfectly paired with cascading ruffle trousers in luxurious white.
STYLING TIP: Team the label’s lauded romantic ruffles with super contemporary clever cut outs via the deconstructed pyjama shirt.
Alongside the irresistible separates (of which there are many) are Simkhai’s black-tie worthy gowns. In breath taking lace the demi-couture craftsmanship speaks for itself. Look to the the red floor-skimming gown complete with head-turning pleated skirt, or the contrast trim monochrome lace dress which plays beautifully with transparent and opaque layers of lace, for your next lavish event.
STYLING TIP: What better way to show off your latest head-turning statement necklace than with a bold cold-shoulder blouse.
