LEGGIADRO Pre-Fall 2014 Women's Luxury Fashion+Knitwear

metallic gold knits-add some sparkle for day or night…could wear either lightweight sweater with denim or an evening skirt.

743 Madison Avenue, NYC




In the fashion world, it is still possible to not to have a splashy, selfie loaded social media presence-and have a loyal customer base who relies on luxurious, well made, impeccably constructed, sophisticated wardrobe staples for their well-travelled life---composed of exclusive Italian knits and elegant, one of a kind fabrics.

And finished with subtle design details lacking from similarly priced, high-end labels.








Leggiadro, is such a company-with boutiques offering a civilized (personalized) shopping experience-in many exclusive locales-where their clients frequent…Palm Beach, Nantucket, Naples, NYC's Madison Avenue, Palm Desert, and Beverly Hills-to name a few.
Not to rest on its laurels-which are considerable-Leggiadro, a family run entity founded by Ann Ross…is reaching out to a younger set of customers (via a print campaign featuring model Maggie Rizer)...


































---who may not think to visit the aforementioned locales---but would appreciate, and look great in, the European inflected- wide assortment of versatile casual and dressy tops, über soft silk knits, tailored and relaxed trousers and shorts,  feminine dresses---combined with resort essentials (scarves, swimsuit cover-ups)…that every women would need.










this is how to mix patterns---same colors-one print more 'low-key' than the other
For us-the exquisite details and stunning solid tones and seasonal prints-inspired by art, nature-and jaunts to far flung locales, really stood out.

sheer silk chiffon over a skirt in the exact same print-feminine detail flatters perfectly- when walking




















Most of what we saw for Pre-Fall (and Spring 2014)- could be worn interchangeably--- year round.

custom buttons


Additionally-refined trims---particularly the custom buttons that adorn the separates… and the presence of immaculately placed linings and finished hems --- ensure a polished outfit-with flattering silhouettes- for those who don't necessarily need to wear the ubiquitous/established fashion labels... but prefer (and appreciate) gracefully chic apparel- made exactingly well.  


casual leggings and cropped capri lengths---

Spring 2014 prints-wardrobe builders with short and long sleeve tops, matching scares and skirts in patterns that don't date

this reversible silk knit sweater---comes with two closures- changes the feel of this versatile cover-up-more dressy-or more casual...






Spring 2014 


 basic long sleeve white shirt---a wardrobe must-is not so basic here---love the feminine darted shape, and the gold snaps as buttons…a modern classic
