The It-it: Bill Blass

Amidst the loud environment of Twitter, Instigram, Facebook and, yes we'll say it, blogs, there is something extra special about quiet elegance. The resurgence of the all-American brand, Bill Blass has us dreaming of days spent on Yachts and nights spent dancing at Les Caves Du Roy.

We are especially taken with the designer's Fall/Winter 2012 collection. First, we absolutely adore the contrast of navy and black. The gowns are classic but modern and the tailoring is sublime. The overall ascetic reminds us of the wonderful roots of the American designer.

Longtime fans of Bill Blass include Sigourney Weaver, Candice Bergen, Barbra Streisand, Barbara Walters, Nancy Reagan and Jackie Onassis. Today Bill Blass's designs can be found on Eve, Gabrielle Union and Nicole Scherzinger.
