What’s Ramy Sharp been up to this summer? We caught up with the Ramy Brook designer at her Kyle by Alene Too trunk show in Southampton, where shoppers got to meet the designer and well as shop her new Fall 2016 range.
What’s new at Ramy Brook?
We’ve almost doubled in size! We’re increasing everything in our categories as well as adding new ones, like the furs,and more knits, jackets, and pants. We’re still known for very sexy tops, but we’re expanding our collection so it’s full circle.
What are we seeing for Fall?
To me, fall is all about a beautiful day in Central Park. I love the foliage and colors, and that inspires the color palette. We’re seeing a lot of this gorgeous cognac color and evergreen. In terms of the clothes, you’ll see yummy sweaters and sexy tops, tailored pants that look great on the body, and I love a good fur. We plan to be a full-blown lifestyle brand from head to toe, which includes shoes, bags, belts, and jewelry.
Summer’s almost over…what have you been up to?
The Hamptons was great this summer. I’ve been doing a lot of charitable events out here like Super Saturday and the UJA trunk show, which was really successful, and now we’re at Kyle by Alene Too. My kids just got back from camp, so I’m shuffling them all over the place and then they go back to school.
Have you done any traveling?
I was all over! I was in Mykonos, Sicily, St. Tropez, and now the Hamptons. In September I have to go to China for work. I’m meeting with different representatives and factories to help with our line and new collections. Some of our stuff is made there, so I’ll also make sure everything is on track!
