NEW YORK — After studying philosophy for a master’s degree at NYU, Julia Neaman embarked on a career in fashion. The result is Julia, a full collection of jackets, skirts, tops and dresses with Victorian and military influences. Her Lolita-esque pieces caught the fancy of Barneys New York, where the label has been carried since its inception in fall 2001. "We’re really happy with the collection," says Julie Gilhart, vice president and fashion director of the store. "It has a distinctive vintage and romantic feeling." Neaman’s special details, she adds, set the line apart. Here, Julia’s cotton top and peasant skirt; earrings by Yoni Z, cotton wrap by Phelgye at Tibet Kailash and satin ballet slippers by Capezio.
