A few weeks ago, the Costello Tagliapietra collection launched to an audience of about seven people, and now the Charlotte Ronson pieces have slipped in without much attention. Our friends at Sugar Rock Catwalk popped by yesterday to have a gander at the Ronson items, and had this to say about the experience: "Sizes were plentiful and although I noticed several people stop and do a double take at the collection, it was by no means bustling. The clothes were not placed at the front of the store, as with Costello Tagliapietra's launch, but closer towards the mid-back section."
They also mentioned that the signage was so subtle, they breezed right past it—and that's the best part, since everything is only $29.99. Despite the quiet launch, the collection is basic and wearable, and at such a low price point, it's foolish to be more critical. After all, who doesn't love an easy striped jersey dress for about 30 bucks?
