Staying Power: Ovadia & Sons Fall 2013
Like a lot of people, my first glimpse at Ovadia & Sons was during capsule a few years back. And, like a lot of people, I was taken back by how good it was. What’s that thing they say about first impressions? The collection on display definitely had my attention, and while it packed all the firepower of some of the more seasoned labels, as new twins on the block I couldn’t tell if it was sustainable. However, the following season my reaction was the same and by this time the secret was out, the internet had spoken and I wasn’t alone in my opinion.
Now several seasons later, it’s clear that both Ariel and Shimon Ovadia have all the ingredients to go the distance. Their latest collection (Fall 2013) is about as close to perfect as anyone could ask for, at least in my opinion. Everything not only looks terrific, it’s made well and is realistically wearable – a far cry from some of the other notables. So start saving your allowance kids, this stuff hits shelves later this year and you can bet it’s not going last long. [Ovadia & Sons]
