A Grundahl Time in Soho

When in Soho I avoid its mallification side but never miss IF, a boutique that carries eccentric European clothes.

My favorite designer there is Ivan Grundahl, who has a wonderful way with layers and pleats and smocking and asymmetry and ruching.

I tried on this dress, which was too large, but I loved the way the layers of net and pleats floated.

If the dress weren’t too big, I would have popped next door to the jeans shop to show Mr. C, so do I love wearing a gown during the day.

Those pleats are gorgeous. I bet that was so hard to make.

I haven't seen these clothes before but they are fascinating.
