Standing in the aftermath of NY and London fashion week, I often find myself lost within the rubble. After being bombarded by neon, polka dots, long hem-lines, short hem-lines, crochet, sheer, and every crazy hair style in between, it can be hard to differentiate the good from the bad. But all of the confusion and luke-warm feelings evaporate when I see a collection that stands out to me, such as Ter et Bantine. Manuela Arcari, head designer since the line's birth in 1992, proves to be the queen of minimalism as the crisp lines mesh seamlessly with the interesting colors and unexpected shapes. In a fashion world where more is the new less, this perfectly basic collection warmed my heart.
