What is it about a dress with pockets that gets us all so excited? Maybe it's the thought that something so beautiful can also be totally functional. Maybe it's that safe feeling of tucking your hands at your sides when you're not sure what else to do with them. Maybe it's how sneaky the pockets always are--flat-lying slits that disappear into a side seam. Maybe it's a way of showing you're not just a dress girl, that you're scrappy too, and don't need a purse.
Whatever the reason, whenever I wear a dress that has them, if someone says something remotely complimentary, my automatic response is sticking my hands in them to show off the magic.
Sara Lanzi seems to design with women in mind, whether it's hidden pockets in a dress, striking drop earrings on felt to keep them almost weightless, or trousers that are expertly tailored and pleated to hug your body.
She's a woman in charge and she's building something really excellent. So glad we get to share what she's doing with you.
