I am a huge huge fan of ultra suede and always have been. It’s a Japanese 70′s invented fabric that was created to travel well and look expensive and that it does. The thing I love about ultra suede is that the color is so vibrant even after all these years and I think this button up dress by Stanley Sherman is from the 80′s. Stanley Sherman boasted that his designs were timeless back in 1988 in an interview and I would totally agree with you Mr. Sherman. He said “For me, there is no season” like most designers he produced new collections in the spring & fall but Sherman considers the seasonal references misleading because his designs changed only in subtle ways from season to season and since back in the 80′s when his pieces sold for $150 to $500 a pop that’s nice to know. I love designers that keep life simple and clean because even 30 + years later this ultra suede button up dress still has all the moves down. I could just eat this piece right up. Clean simple lines are timeless and I say always look for them when your thrifting! Keep keeping it “green” because I’m your luxury curator!
