We’d like to say Amber Jimenez and Wray Serna are ambitious.
But seeing as the Brooklyn design duo’s new line started out as a side project, we’ll call them Ambit and leave it at that.
The ladies’ debut is small yet cohesive with a deceptively simple, body-conscious, and demurely sexy vibe. (Think ’90s minimalism minus the stringent lines.)
High-rise, side-zip shorts pair perfectly with a cropped silk tank or black semi-backless dolman top (buttons run nape to shoulder blades). A flower-print scoop-neck leotard can be worn tucked into a full chiffon skirt (our favorite piece). For color, slip on the lava red, calf-grazing panel shift.
Clothing is made to order, but if you’re antsy, chapeaux of woven pewter-blue paper or cream straw are ready now (Jimenez’s day job is with milliner Albertus Swanepoel). Cast antler necklaces and cuffs round out the accessories. (Note: One spectacular pink turban is also at Light Vision.)
Proof they’re bound to succeed? Help from the pair’s Kickstarter fund promises an even larger collection come fall.
