Ari Dein Boutique Chemise
The empire waist of this glorious chemise echoes the empire state of mind we were in when we fell in love with Ari Dein's Boutique Hotel line. The same impeccable turns of hand-sewn ribbon are the opening strains of Gershwin, the hand-selected silk charmeuse silhouettes and drape echo the swell and hush of Olmstead, the pitch perfect details and tailoring (golden lion buttons? Inverted pleating? Impeccable A-line skim?) have the wink of Wharton, and- like us- the woman we see wearing this is equally at home holding a champagne cocktail on the observation deck as she is holding a lobster with Woody Allen. This architectural, easy-louche piece is so perfectly New York that we can't help but heart Ari Dein as much as we heart our beloved city. Full disclosure: CEO Claire bought this chemise for herself after merely seeing a photo of it from the back. That's love.
