Coachella Vibes ~ Morgan Lane

April 24, 2017

By ALISON CONNOLLY

What started as writing a blog post turned into putting together a wish list of lingerie and loungewear that I can’t live without.  This collection of covet-worthy items on my radar is from NYC-based designer Morgan Lane.

This youthful (i.e. 20-30 something year old) brand is packed with personality, and offers a cheeky take on what’s meant to be “your special secret underneath it all”.  But don’t mistake that playfulness for a lack of sophistication, because each piece is made with impeccable attention to detail using luxurious fabrics and overseen by a designer who has made Forbes’ prestigious “30 Under 30” list.

The brand’s founder Morgan Curtis earned her stripes working for her mother (renowned fashion designer) Jill Stuart, and has since moved on to become a finalist in the sleepwear category for the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund with her own label.  In just a few years, this brand has gone from its inception to being a staple in major luxury retailers like Selfridge’s, Le Bon Marche and online shops like Shopbop and Modus Operandi (just to name a few).

The following images are from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, which introduces swimwear to the mix.  Many of the images are from its New York Fashion Week debut, which showcases a collection that’s both psychedelic and dreamy.   It might just be the timing of this post, but I’m definitely getting Coachella vibes from this new season, and am also wonderfully impressed!

(Note: the header image is from the SS16 collection, but just too pretty not to include here; visit the designer’s website to see previous seasons, each of which inspiring).
