Bergdorf Goodman is excited to announce the arrival of New York-based ready-to-wear label Brock Collection. To fête the launch, designers Laura Vassar and Kris Brock hosted an intimate breakfast at the BG Restaurant this morning to talk about their Resort 2020 range—sharing their inspiration as well as their favorite pieces available now at BG. From printed taffeta dresses to lace separates, the collection couldn’t be more perfect for the upcoming holiday season. Here, read our Q&A with the designers and shop the collection now in store on 3 and online at BG.com.
Bergdorf Goodman: What was the inspiration for the Resort 2020 collection?
Laura Vassar and Kris Brock: For Resort 2020 we wanted to create easy wardrobe staples that you could take on holiday. As with every collection, we always start with fabric development. We spend a lot of time in mills in France and Italy developing archival prints into different fabrics to be used throughout the collection.
BG: If you were to describe Brock Collection in three words, what would they be?
LV and KB: Three words to describe the brand would be raw, American, romance.
BG: What are some of your favorite pieces available now at Bergdorf Goodman?
LV and KB: We love the printed taffeta dresses and the horsehair peplum top with the organza grosgrain belt.
BG: What would you suggest that a Brock woman wear to a holiday party?
LV and KB: Our black spaghetti strap satin and velvet dress would be a perfect option for a cocktail party or the lace high-waisted skirt with matching peplum top.
BG: What is your favorite Bergdorf Goodman memory?
LV and KB: We have so many that it is hard to pick a favorite but we would have to say when we brought our son Charlie here for the holidays and showed him everything in the Christmas shop on 7.
