Sophie Buhai, one half of Brooklyn-based label Vena Cava, recently summed up the label’s new collaboration with Aqua, Bloomingdale’s contemporary ready-to-wear line, to New York Magazine: “It’s sort of a greatest hits of Vena Cava but a little more playful and accessible.” Those words are all we need to hear to know that Vena Cava for Aqua is likely to be a hit. The collection (and lookbook) is teeming with velvet mini dresses, faux fur vests, lace-trimmed tees, mesh one-shouldered dresses, cropped skinny pants, silk tees and high-waist pleated skirts—all in all, Vena Cava for Aqua is just what fans are looking for. Vena Cava for Aqua will arrive in Bloomingdale’s stores, as well as online at Bloomingdales.com, in September. Prices range from approximately $98 to $198.
