Entering the posh boutique filled with mirrors, metal and chic architecture, my eyes are drawn to three well-merchandised mannequins showcasing the new Lyz Olko collection. First, a rustic denim-on-denim ensemble with a graphic tee to finish off the look. Next, a cotton candy, pink-colored graphic tee paired with a velvet flower-print, front-zipper skirt. And finally, a beautiful blazer in the same flower print, outlined with deep black lapels paired with a rich black graphic tee and deep-blue distressed jeans.

While perusing the collection, I had a chance to speak with the owner of Curve boutique, Nevena Borissova regarding the collaboration with Lyz, and the feel of the collection.

Nevena took me through the collection and explained how it involved redone distressed denim, an infusion of army-green button-down shirts and jackets, and the use of tattoo-like pins placed strategically on pieces. Other parts of the collection included sweatshirts showcasing distressed sleeves and powerful quotes centered as the eye-catcher.

The collection is aptly titled “Back to the Land.” Nevena went on to discuss how Lyz Olko’s collection would be merchandised with the other high-profile collections such as Balmain, Nina Ricci and Alexander McQueen.

Shop the new Lyz Olko collection exclusively at Curve boutique, located in the heart of Noho/Soho in Manhattan, New York.

But we recommend hurrying. From the looks of the launch — and the eager crowd that filled the store — the Lyz Olko collection may not be in stock for long.
