Rue du Mail: Citrus Harlequin

Rue du Mail is Martine Sitbon's new label, and this stunning citrus beauty is one of the reasons why it has succeeded so quickly. The harlequin detailing on the dress is far from costumey, and yet the allusion is unmistakable; the choice of a lighter orange underneath the deeper one is unexpectedly fresh, and yet faithful to the light dexterity of the harlequin in Commedia dell'Arte. I would add a thin navy belt and simple gold flats for some added interest.
