For a long time I’ve been searching for the perfect matching skirt-and-top set. As soon as I saw this I knew it was the one. The print reminds me of impressionist paintings with the bold colors and abstract forms. The structure is playful and fun but still sophisticated. I shot these photos at the MFA Boston in homage to my outfit’s impressionistic forebears. The white marble of the building serves as the perfect blank canvas for my sartorial art.



impressionsunset3What I love most about sets is the versatility to mix and match both pieces with other clothes. You get twice the benefit of a simple dress. But with this set I can’t imagine the top and bottom functioning separately. They work so harmoniously that I only ever want to wear them together.
