There's a lot of "Stace Face" going on at Alice + Olivia's Meatpacking District headquarters in NYC. The brand's term refers to product that bears an iconographic image of designer Stacey Bendet's signature cateye sunglasses and red lip, and it shows up on shoes, clutches, mittens, sweaters, even cake pops.
That isn't all the A + O has in store for fall 2014, as evidenced by their seasonal resee last week. The autumn collection was inspired by Grimm's Fairy Tales, balancing pretty with bewitching by using rich textures like brocade and faux fur and hits of dark-grounded butterfly prints. A+O decked out the showroom to fit the romantic, haunted forest inspiration with blood red roses, gnarled branches, and calligraphed scrolls. Take a closer look at the clothes—and the pretty display—after the jump.
