 A new showroom...a new creative designer...S.I.L.K  is a revived label of  modern separates and dresses---smartly priced... for a grown-up customer.

striped print silk georgette caftan-four seasons wear-layer

The simple presentation was grouped by color themes---of solids and patterns on garment racks...easy to peruse and see how well the tones/prints visually work together.

Also admirable...the high quality of construction and the feel of the fabrics---mostly made of silk and silk blends. Well done outing that we think will appeal to a broad swath of women looking for wardrobe additions---key pieces with a bit of flirt- that will fit in with what they own- already.

Several items come in multiple color waves---ranging from black, white, bright tomato red---soft pastel pink-to chartreuse, a color that will be popular  for Spring 2013.

day to night-dress...menswear inspired-feminine in black washed silk/linen

There was a lot to like---including casual and office wear-transition pieces that would also be year round the feminine blouses, blazers, pretty dresses, anoraks...and bright sunny trench coats.
