Last week, I had the opportunity to go to Saks Fifth Avenue to shop to benefit the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation. It was great fun seeing Kobi Halperin who I met last summer at another lunch for SWCRF. He and his wife are a delightful couple who share a passion for fashion that is showcased by the eponymous Kobi Halperin line, and since Resort 2021 he is designing for Ungaro, determined to embrace “the brand’s history, legacy and cachet — its very DNA — to create something that is relevant for today. I love the idea of embracing the Ungaro ideal and to once again harness that flair for feminine, sexy, effortless Parisian elegance in service to the modern woman. The collection is available exclusively at Saks. Click here to see the entire collection.
And how perfect the Ungaro by Kobi Halperin line is to wear right now, charity luncheons, cocktails and dinner, graduations and wonderful for travel. “I love the idea of tailoring and the soft part mixed together,” he said. Among the special details are ruffles, three-dimensional florals, ruching and printed details. Fabrics are silks and viscose.” We embrace the feminine flourishes in the collection. We paired them with subtle accessories that complement his bold styles.
And while shopping, I found these terrific eye glass or sunglass strap from the clever Gult Gaia. As one who is constantly loosing her glasses, I ordered both.
We call these versatile pieces “Dinner Tops”. Pair with white or black pants, strap on some stilettos and you are ready to go!
Dinner Tops are Ready!
Women’s Wear Daily reported on his inspiration. “As a young student, I loved strolling along Avenue Montaigne. To me it was always the most inspiring and exciting moment to stop and gaze at the Emanuel Ungaro shop at the end of the avenue. Paris has always been my primary source of inspiration because of its sophistication and style and the representation of the Parisian woman,” said Halperin. He said that undertaking this role, he was determined to embrace “the brand’s history, legacy and cachet — its very DNA — to create something that is relevant for today.” He added. “I love the idea of embracing the Ungaro ideal and to once again harness that flair for feminine, sexy, effortless Parisian elegance in service to the modern woman.“
