New labels

Olivera Savic

‘Deliverance’ was the theme and so it was from another era in fashion. Inspired by early-twentieth-century simplicity, Olivera Savic's collection had conservative three-quarter length skirts in timeless navy, boiled wool vests, classic straight-leg slacks and sophisticated camel wool and cashmere (oh, the cashmere!).
   Highlights from the pair include silk pants, sheath dresses and ruffled-hem skirts that make this new label classic and feminine. Finer details included ruched shoulders and sheer, opaque sleeves. The revival of dusty denim blues also found its way onto the runway in this collection, giving a sort of movement from a traditional, conservative time to a more modern age of greater fashion freedom. Unique Olivera Savic hand-screened jersey was used and their lush faux fur jackets in striking blues were luxurious.
   Still, the feel was mostly classic contemporary, playing it safe with silhouettes and textures. Olivera Savic's potential could rest in that—Canadian women are looking for modern, classy daywear to call their own. Versatile pieces are important for the modern woman and Olivera Savic can offer just that. Their separates can be wardrobe staples and should be a welcome addition to any wardrobe.
