Still searching for those perfect vintage Levi’s? Save yourself the hassle and hold out for Brock Collection’s new jeans instead. Husband-and-wife duo Kris Brock and Laura Vassar were thinking about Carolyn Bessette when they designed their new collection, so it makes sense that their first jeans have all the ’90s qualities we’re currently craving: a straight leg, medium wash, and just the right amount of heft without feeling stiff. What you won’t find: rips, fading, or extra slouch. “The whole collection really started with the jeans,” Vassar explained. They paired them with relaxed basics inspired by their muse, like a superfine black turtleneck, shell-pink coat, or a crisp, knotted tank. Elsewhere, they used a soft cornflower-blue jacquard on a double-breasted jacket and nipped-in skirt because it “reminded them of faded jeans.”
Unexpected fabrics are becoming a go-to for the label. A trio of saffron floral silk dresses with flecks of metallic gold felt extra rich but would be just as easy to wear as the more minimal propositions. Other highlights here were in the details: A sash around the waist, delicate padding at the shoulders, and a knit with the subtlest pointelle stitch captured the brand’s simple-yet-special vibe that, like Carolyn Bessette, doesn’t go out of style.
