Pears & Bears

I recently came across a new designer named Kayce Hughes, who designs the line Pears & Bears.  She began her career in fashion at Ralph Lauren, and started her own line beginning with nightshirts for her daughters made from vintage fabrics.  Pears & Bears now includes clothing for ladies as well as children, accessories, and decorative homeware.  Her classic American styles are often inspired by vintage silhouettes:

Kayce also incorporates vintage-style fabrics, some of which are reminiscent of Liberty of London (another favorite of mine).  Here are two current designs:

This is her Basic Button Down dress, in Blue + Green Loire Floral.

This one is the Long Sleeve Ruffle Shirt Dress, in Pink O Geometric.
