 Amazing stitch detail on a Jill Stuart archive piece

Just as Diane Von Furstenberg is known for wrap dresses and Chanel for wool suits, flirty frocks span Jill Stuart's signature style. Having founded her namesake brand in 1993, Stuart's fame flourishes post-Clueless (think Alicia Silverstone's yellow plaid suit). Twenty four years later, Stuart's archives have hit a storage limit. In a rare open-to-the public opportunity, Jill Stuart is cleaning house via pop-up paradise in the heart of Soho, NYC. Keep reading for a look inside...

 Still from Clueless - Jill Stuart plaid suits

Parasol Projects' modest space currently houses an extensive archive of truly amazing Jill Stuart and Jill Stuart collaboration branded items that awaits the tireless treasure hunter. Each piece is individually numbered and tagged with history and price. Elegance drips from the racks, as unique handcrafted hybrid pieces perch alongside familiar florals. This sale is a must-see for fans of the brand and and vintage fashion aficionados. For one month--from March 23rd until April 24th--stop by 171 Elizabeth St. between 11AM and 7PM any day of the week.
