Jazzy jersey knit jumpsuit by Chiara Bonita Petit Robe, haute hat by Bahadu Inc. (280209)

When the seasons are clashing and it’s hot one day and cold the next, you need a variety of clothes in your closet. You may have thought that you could put the winter clothes away, but it’s still not time yet. So pull out your swimsuits in case of last-minute travel plans to somewhere warm, and keep your soft seasonal wardrobe ready to go!

If you’re heading on that wild weekend trip for more sun and fun, think about mixing and matching your swim pieces. This season’s swimsuit trends are all about mixing and matching prints, patterns, tops and bottoms. From the beach to the pool, Rigby & Peller helps to expand your look by adding the little black swimsuit to your wardrobe. Pretty cover-ups and longer wrap-around dresses or skirts are a must for when the weather changes on the beach, boat or boardwalk. Designer Carmen Marc Valvo introduces a bright orange two-piece suit that’s a smash, even if you’re splashing in the sea. Precious fabrics and rich embellishments are also news in swimsuit looks. For summer ’19, the looks are chic, sleek, figure-flattering, daring and colorful.

For fall 2019, Italian designer Chiara Boni presented an exceptional show at New York Fashion Week. Sensuous stretch jersey fabrics are the brand’s signature. Known for her impeccable fit and outstanding comfort, Boni created a fascinating combination of feminine silhouettes that were matched with new textiles. The plush velvets were luxurious in their looks and soft-to-the touch feel. Velvet was indeed all the rage on this season’s runway, and it happens to be one of Boni’s favorite textures.

The collection’s overall sense of precious and sophisticated luxury was defined by the color palette, which was focused on deep tones of black, rich red and green hues, enlightened by sparkling and charming gold accents. The haute Bahadu Inc. hats simply completed the look. Boni quickly gained universal acclaim and something of a cult status—her customers and celebrity clientele are loyal.

Self-taught in the art of design, Boni frequented the Parisian ateliers but developed her design style in a punk London spirit. She fused two points of view that resulted in her sexy, signature dresses and separates. From 1985 to 1999, Boni joined a GFT group that produced Italian pret-a-porter labels. After her stint there, she launched her own collection. Her clothes enhance the feminine figure.
