First Kaiser Karl, Now alice + olivia. Fashion Insiders Give Magnum Ice Cream Bars Some Big Love
Lagerfeld & Rachel Bilson teamed up on a series of fun shorts which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival to help launch the super-premium ice cream brand stateside. And now, the big treat proves you can't be too teensy or chic with the smaller version of its velvety-vanilla ice cream bars covered in Belgian chocolate - which inspired some sassy skirts of the same length by Stacey Bendet of alice + olivia. “Inspiration is like ice cream: it always makes you smile," says Bendet of the skirts, one made with power mesh base & embellished with sequins & chains, the other a beaded & sequin-festooned silk & lace confection. "The MAGNUM Mini is the perfect inspiration for a mini skirt, playful and sweet!"
The skirts will make their official (and, no doubt, delicious) catwalk debut at the alice + olivia Spring 2013 presentation during NY Fashion Week.
