This Just In: alice + olivia Collaboration with Krysten Ritter Supports Charity
June 29, 2012 | Style & Beauty
As if you needed another reason to love the whimsically wonderful wares of alice + olivia, founder and designer Stacey Bendet has collaborated with actress Krysten Ritter to bring us a just-launched line of exclusive flats and heels. After discussing Ritter’s role in the indie-comedy L!fe Happens—the story of a twentysomething who raises her baby with her three best friends—Bendet was inspired to join creative forces with the actress. Having recently joined the board of Baby Buggy, Bendet saw the perfect opportunity to create a shoe collection that would grace the feet of fashionistas everywhere while simultaneously supporting the charity. All proceeds from the shoes will benefit Baby Buggy's mission to provide baby and childcare essentials to families in need.
Adding an edgy twist to the classic ballet flat, the Dakota flat ($195) defines simple luxury. Made from lamb leather and featuring a delicate ankle strap, the back of the flat comes adorned with a party-ready bejeweled bow. It’s available in nude or black, but the summery lighter shade is perfect for staying comfortable at an up-till-dawn Hamptons party. 48 Main St., East Hampton, 702-7155
