An Israeli designer lands stateside
We’ve been coveting Israeli fashion designer Ronen Chen’s pieces from afar for years. (Seriously, who can resist a designer who truly understands flattering fit, quality fabrics and timeless styles?) So naturally, we were thrilled to learn that he has finally launched his first U.S. e-commerce site.
Boasting a holistic approach to design, Ronen Chen has managed to create women’s clothing that feels as though it’s tailored to every aspect of your body. Inspired by the geometric patterns of modern architecture, his minimalistic style has a universal appeal. His garments tread the fine line between revealing and concealing, fashionable and comfortable--and as a result, Chen never falls off balance.
His autumn/winter 2013 collection (all available on the new website) speaks to his impeccable eye--we swear, we want everything. We love his soft knits, like the draped Berlin top ($159), and feminine dresses like this cap-sleeved shift ($269). Our favorite, however, has to be the asymmetrical Copenhagen coat ($495), which is also one of Chen’s top picks.
As a welcoming gift, visit the website this month to receive free shipping on all styles.
Now, if only we could get our own guy to listen so closely to what we want.
