The New Clothes Line You Can't Live Without

Remember when Luca Luca was the coolest line around? That's partly due to the sartorial chops of Youngmi Ha, who served as the senior designer at the house for five years. The Parsons grad then put her own spin on La Rok, which, big coincidence, had its moment in the sun during her tenure. Having taken a back seat to bigger names, it's no surprise that Ma wants her own chance to shine. So, mad props are due for her début collection, Miha (a play on her own name), that blends a mix of haute-couture with mass appeal for pieces that sport extravagant drapes, structured bodices, and tons of embellished beading. Just right for a dressed-up dinner or a dark-lit boite, her edgy cocktail dresses, silky shorts, and blazers with unexpected silhouettes make it hard to turn down that extra Manhattan. And, if you're looking that good, why would you?
