Pretty floral prints-designed in-house-with knit sleeves-in dress….

Parisian inspirations (notably- the wardrobe of lead actress- Julie Delpy's character Céline- in the 1995 romantic film Before Sunrise…)-modern details, feminine and graphic b/w prints -on classic chic silhouettes---c'est très fab for CLUNY-a wearable contemporary collection of dresses and knit basics.
…and in print blouse

Cluny has a focused group of mostly dresses - all flattering on many body types---! The next season's darker tonal offerings include a warm feminine floral print (Fall 2014)-but everything we saw is truly season-less. Select Spring 2014 dresses---including the all white knits/silks  are available now.
Black White-diagmol lines slims the wearer-statement making knit dress
Black and white combos- reminding us of  Minimalist/Op Art painterly collections=always in style.

this is the kind of knit we live in -in all but the hot summer months. Color block knit-great travel piece too…available in two color waves...

don't need much else to dress this dress up-can can add some colors with accessories-scarves, bags, shoes-or not. This bold graphic can be worn with simple black everything else too.

Breezy drop waist knit-layer under a long sweater in cool climes…silky hand feel of this featherweight frock- good for sticky hot days
Quality is exceptional-as the parent company has extensive experience producing women's fashionable knits---for a looong time…and for many chi-chi higher priced labels.
we would live in this-drop hem…sheer shoulder inserts- white dress-tailored shirt/tunic/dress-belt or wear loose

Basics-scooped neck woven silk knits-tunic lengths-are easy to dress up or down---sheer enough to work as a cover-up at the seaside…layer over tees or blouses…casual or more formal occasions.
rather plush-multiple ply cable knit cashmere blend…cozy…belt for added shape wear loose while relaxing
