WHY WE LIKE IT:
some people simply have an eye for sophistication. aissatou herself is warm and elegant, and she is the type of person whose designs reflect a lot of who she is on the inside.
i, admittedly, went into the reemergence of the jumpsuit as a wardrobe staple with some skepticism. i am happy to report that i am a convert. if you can give me just one article of clothing that i have to keep up with and it can be worn for a ton of events, i'm in. the silky soft pantsuits feel like beautiful pajamas, but they look boss af.
do we really need to say anything more?
