Laura Vassar and Kris Brock continue to churn out luxurious, thoughtful collections at Brock, this season fusing their brand of elegant Nineties minimalism with a subtle prairie vibe. The duo worked a floral oleander print, done in pink and neutral colorways, throughout their romantic looks — most notably on a lightweight topcoat with soft drop shoulders and a chic, cropped button-down blouse with balloon sleeves.
Vassar and Brock have a knack for making typically high-maintenance silhouettes — think fully corseted bustiers paired with high-waisted full pleated skirts — feel unfussy and understated, due in large part to their fine Italian fabrics, which for resort included silk cottons, twills and linens. For evening, they offered spaghetti-strap slipdresses and skirts in floral metallic jacquard embellished with metal beads and pearls.
The brand continues to expand its denim selection — this season introducing stretch selvage and low-rise flares — as well as its furs, offered here in a beaver jacket and a long, navy mink coat with a wrap belt. Collaborating again with George Esquivel, Vassar and Brock designed high-knee boots in pale blue suede and dark brown alligator, adding a touch of toughness to the clothing’s soft femininity.
