Manhattan lingerie brand ARI DEIN has unveiled its Fall 2011 collection and once again we are swept into the decadent luxuries of yesteryear. Of course this is the intent of designer Arielle Shapiro, who each season takes her inspiration from architecture, deco interiors and antiques and interprets it in silks, crepe de chine, ruffles and lace. This season introduces new variations on some of her best-selling groups (the Boutique Hotel style is a longtime favorite of ours), and also includes hand-painted silk and an oyster-print group with a pattern specially made by the designer!
It should be noted that Arielle Shapiro was recently accepted into the prestigious CFDA Incubator program. She was selected along with 9 other designers to be part of this exclusive mentoring program with significant connections in the world of fashion. Do we see a large Vogue feature in her future? Yes!
You can shop the Fall 2011 collection on the ARI DEIN website, and see some of our favorites from her beautiful Summer 2011 collection on our website!
