Last night, Otte store owner and designer Kay Lee presented her fall 2014 collection. Lee's very first piece for the in-house private label was a silk tank top, at a time when the economy was down and shoppers were looking for inexpensive basics. The upcoming fall collection, on the other hand, is Lee's first all-encompassing lifestyle line: there are elegant solid blouses, printed dresses, cropped pants, and jackets and vests.
After the jump, take a look at twelve more photos from the collection, the colors and prints of which were inspired by her recent trip to Peru.
