CACHÉ Womenswear Spring 2012 Day + Evening Wear

Midtown, NYC

words/images Judith Ecochard

Caché is a clothing/accessories label for women that is reaching out beyond its accessibly priced-and often splashy evening wear  roots-with day wear that should appeal to a wide range of gals who don't need a new cocktail frock-but can always perk up some work ensemble with a versatile blouse that pairs with jeans too...
Shoe print ruffle blouse $98-with skinny jean $88-leather motorcycle jacket $398







































With a strong understanding of their customer, Caché still have some of the embellishments their core niche wants...it doesn't surprise us that their eponymous retail boutiques enjoy brisk sales in areas like southern Florida.

Washed denim strapless jumpsuit $148

Tweed vest with navy piping lined well $128

























 What we saw right off are the great colors used-lots of sea blues and greens, corals, pinks as well as the neutrals.








softly pleated shorts

Beaded tube top $78, Beaded shrug $98, white flap pocket pants $98






Key hole neckline---thin belted dress-under a blazer fo work, on its  own with high heels for nights out
 And yes...a teenage daughter might borrow a few pieces from mom's closet-but the separates have the 35-50 year old female in mind---a fashion aware confident gal who likes to dress in flattering, body aware attire. With a bit of bling...her own or Caché's. Austere minimalism def not here. And not wanted.
