I'm SO sad to see you go.
In its more recent history, Bill Blass Couture served as a maison that really payed homage to its roots. Under the creative direction of Peter Som, the company flourished, creating beautiful, charming, and wonderfully wearable garments that embraced the rules of modernity and contemporary clothing while still championing the vintage glamor of yore. In short, it was one of those few design houses than never seemed to dissappoint.
Whether or not you are a tried and true "Blass woman," there is just something about his clothing that appeals to your sensibilities. Its hard not to appreciate the intricate craftsmanship, the beautiful tailoring, the clean lines or the feminine, lady-like silhouettes. I had high hopes for the future of the line, especially with Som at its helm, so it's with much sadness that I say goodbye to this truly legendary design house. I can only hope that someone with some insight swoops it up and relaunches it- because it's truly a shame to let it die.
