In The Showroom: Gilded Age Spring 09 Women's Collection

Oct 10 2008 - 1:22pm

Last season when we attended the Gilded Age presentation [1] we hoped we'd eventually get to see a women's line come from the brand. Though the infiltration of Ralph Lauren-alikes can sometimes be overwhelming, in the end it gives a strong identity to wholesome American fashion and that can't hurt. Gilded Age's first women's collection looks a little more grunge than say, Trovata [2]. The worn-thin flannel shirts, levis-inspired oversized denim, and square, low-slung shorts reminded us of our days as an adolescent in the nineties. For the less boyish Gilded Age customers, they put out some cotton frocks and thin floral-printed separates that are more prep-school friendly.
