Local designer she&reverie continue to be inspired by the 18th century, its fashions, gardens and popular genre paintings. Designer Quinne even told me the name she&reverie "comes from one of Jean-Honore Fragonard's 1770s-era paintings at the Frick Collection." It is lovely, see below.
They have a fun Print & Pattern collection and there is one skirt in there that I just love! The Rococo Skirt (of course!)

I love finding clothing that is inspired by art history. I also love the idea of wearing something that shouts Fragonard or Vernet landscapes for anytime! It is like art history on the go. It reminds me of the popular art historical tights by Black Milk.
