Vintage Mayle

My dear friend Susan at Odessa sent out an email this week that she was selling some vintage Mayle pieces  in mint condition. So exciting! (Jane Mayle of course closed her eponymous line—to the horror of all of her fans—in 2008, saying the fashion system had gotten "out of control.") When I stopped in, I was so, so happy to see a certain floral geometric top from the Spring 2006 line, which I have always regretted not buying! There is just something about this print—the teal and gold with the flesh color, paired with the triangles on a black background—that I can't get enough of. It's vintage looking and ultra-modern at the same time, and I can't stop looking at it.

  1. I too loved that print! Mayle was one of my favorite designers...I miss that wear everyday sensibility that she brought to her dresses!
