C.Z. Guest. Babe Paley. The Slims (Aarons & Keith). Think the Rat Pack, dry martinis, juicy jazz, and the irresistible retro glam of Palm Beach with its classic warm-weather fashion palette of breezy whites and cheery brights, courtesy of Pucci & Pulitzer.
Lilly & Van exudes a similarly sunny vibe with tangy tropical hues guaranteed to punch up your look this summer. Designed by husband and wife (& Pulitzer god daughter) Lilly and Barry “Van” van Gerbig (grandson of Douglas Fairbanks Jr.). the line offers bold and colorful prints, all of which are Van’s original designs, and made to to inspire happiness. “Van’s artwork is unique," says Lilly. "It’s bright, beautiful colors. He likes to hide little details in every print."
Although affordable (most everything is under $50), the collection nonetheless evokes the good life of leisure and luxury, inspired by Lilly Sr...who set the pair up on a blind date.
Fans of the line include Gossip Girl's Kelly Rutherford, Elisabeth Rohm, Emily Van Camp, Disney star Brenda Song and Melrose Place star Jessica Lucas.
Available at QVC.com where the duo is returning Friday, May 14 at 1am EST to showcase and discuss their latest looks.
