After becoming the queen of bum-flattering trousers in the early 2000's and then taking a little break, San Francisco-based designer Julie Chaiken is now back with the second collection for her new label, Chaiken and Capone. She tells us her fall 2011 offerings, seen right here for the very first time, were all directly inspired by her customer. "It's about what is she wearing? What does she want to wear? And where is she wearing it?" she explains. "We wanted to answer those questions and came up with great pieces that work together, but more importantly, each piece stands on its own. At its core, it's really a collection of separates. Each piece is sexy and understated, like our customer." Take a cruise through the brand new lookbook and let us know which of the office-appropriate looks is your favorite in the comments!
