Twice a year (February and September), the streets of Manhattan become infiltrated by a sea of style icons in the form of designers, models, editors, and beyond. Welcome to New York Fashion Week, where the runway shows and presentations are the most coveted experiences to discover how fashion and culture collide. Fashion brand Alice + Olivia has consistently raised the bar at NYFW with a presentation featuring whimsical, effervescent, and mystical designs. At the brand’s helm is Stacey Bendet, who unveils her fantastical fashions during every NYFW with a star-studded event, and a few surprises as well.
The Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet Fall 2020 fashion presentation was held on February 10 at the Highline Stages, and for two hours, guests mingled, admired, and photographed the tapestry of colors and patterns Bendet integrated into the collection. One item that stood out throughout the presentation–and served as this season’s surprise item–was the original Alice + Olivia bucket bag inspired by The Glenlivet. The two brands teamed up to honor The Glenlivet’s newest expression, the 14 Year Old, which is a flavorful single malt whisky from being finished in ex-cognac casks.
The playful purple color of the bucket bag is an ode to The Glenlivet’s 14 Year Old, while the chic shape of the bag celebrates the creative and contemporary attitude of NYFW. Made of 100 percent Italian leather with a pebbled exterior and soft suede bonded lining, this A+O accessory is sophisticated with a spirited aesthetic courtesy of The Glenlivet.
Combining the worlds of fashion and whisky at New York Fashion Week: The Shows is a clever way of infusing culture from each category into the other. The Glenlivet and Alice + Olivia are both empowered brands with an eye for fostering innovation and creative thinking, making this limited-edition bucket bag a must-have for the fall season.
