In 2002, Designer Stacey Bendet showcased her slim-fitting “Staceypants” in bright colors and bold prints at the Russian Tea Room in NYC. Fast forward to 2016, Alice + Olivia is a full-blown brand featuring ready-to-wear, gowns, shoes, tech accessories and handbags with stores worldwide. Designer Stacey Bendet brings glamour to the brand, often featuring her own caricature with oversized glasses (like this and this!) and bright red lips on everything from dresses to accessories. Clients of Alice + Olivia are unapologetically chic and gravitate towards flirty short dresses and long, romantic gowns (a Bendet staple)—and of course, pants that fit like a glove.
