“A few months ago, while I was planning the opening of my boutique in Capri, I came across vintage photographs of Jackie Kennedy and Marella Agnelli wandering around the island, as well as one of Jackie and her sister, Princess Lee Radziwill, getting off a boat. Immediately, other women like them came to mind; figures like C.Z. Guest and Gloria Guinness who possess a natural kind of elegance that I try to capture in my designs,” states Silvia Tcherassi. “From this moment, I decided that the aesthetic codes that would influence my Spring 2024 collection would stem from Truman Capote’s aptly named swans.”

These style dictations and particularly, these women, evoke the same notion of quiet luxury that permeates the zeitgeist but are also blended with elements of the unexpected and playful. That being said, the pieces in this collection have been designed with a modern-day woman in mind: someone who values comfort, but also uses fashion as a means of expression and individuality. “Power lunches in New York, galas in Lake Como and serene sunsets in Palm Beach, these became the locations for Spring 2024,” added the designer.

With a strong focus on soft tailoring—the very epitome of casual luxury— the garments have been crafted with delicate silks, laces, chiffons and brocades. The palette oscillates from the neutral tones that so characterized Jackie’s style to the vibrant hues brought about the Latin heritage of Gloria Guinness. The detailed patterns are an homage to Marella’s gardens, Lee’s passion for the arts and of course, the turquoise waters that served as the background to the memorable images of C.Z. Guest by Slim Aarons. Subtle, but intentional details like accents specially made in our atelier, as well as oversize belts make this proposal wearable and apt for a woman of today. In a few words, this collection captures the spirit of these icons and can be summarized in a few words: sophisticated, elegant, and timeless.

As Co-Founder and President of the company, Vera de Tcherassi is one of the most influential pillars of the brand. “I am always thinking about the future of the company and more recently, I have thought a lot about the legacy we are building both on the fashion and business fronts,” shares Vera, who along with her daughter, Silvia, founded the brand more than three decades ago. An highly significant source of wisdom and experience, Vera’s perceptive nature and drive for growth have been crucial to the company’s expansion. A fierce advocate for more sustainable practices within the industry before it was part of the larger conversation, Vera’s campaign for the environment are part of the brand’s ethos, “Sustainability has always been a sort of instinctual impulse and we have always made use of every single leftover material. In our world, there is no such thing as waste, and all that remains from other collections will subsequently be turned into something else.

A true pioneer with boundless creativity, Silvia Tcherassi’s career and vision set a lot of precedents and marked a lot of firsts for design in Latin America. As the first Latin designer invited to present her collection in the Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks, she redefined luxury fashion under her own terms, putting forth a fresh vision that was entirely hers. “I was intent on creating a brand that although made in Latin America, would have international presence and prestige,” the designer has stated. An interior designer by trade, Silvia’s concept of effortless elegance has evolved through the years while staying true to its essence. “When it comes to interiors and fashion, I have the same outlook: Achieving that perfect balance between colors, proportions and textures, while highlighting contrasts and of course, a considerable attention to detail. When you have a clear, defined vision and style, you can easily apply it to different fields.” As Creative Director of the brand, Silvia is the epicenter of the Tcherassi universe, which has explored other territories such as home and hospitality.
