Ronen Chen – Israel’s leading women’s fashion designer

I am very excited to introduce you to Ronen Chen who is Israel’s leading women’s fashion designer. Ronen Chen opened his first designer store RONEN CHEN 20 years ago. His designer clothes have been such a success that he now has several stores in Israel and Europe. RONEN CHEN launched an e-commerce site a couple of years ago. This means that now also women in the Americas have access to his individual style without having to travel to over the Atlantic to Israel or Europe.

What I love about Ronen Chen’s clothes …

… are the unique aesthetic, high quality, and well structured, clean designs (see first photo of this post). His beautiful clothes are made for real women. They are modern and feel fashion forward and flatter all kind of body shapes and sizes, and women of any age.

The jersey dress that I chose and received courtesy to RONEN CHEN is very soft and I would not have guessed that it is 68% viscose, 28% polyester, and 4% elastane when I had not read the label. It feels nearly like silk. Not itchy or scratchy like many non-cotton  jersey pieces felt in the late 70s when I was a child. The fabric is very high quality. The dress is well cut. I also like that this jersey dress is feeling so light on the skin. The seams are all well made and you see RONEN CHEN’s love for details.

Outfit details: Jersey dress c/o Ronen Chen paired with own statement bag, strings of pearls, Christian Louboutin patent leather pumps, Hermes collier de chien belt, Hermes collier de chien cuff, Bulova watch, golden bangle (gift from my late Mom), unbranded bag, and white Christian Louboutin patent leather pumps

Fit and cut

The dress has just the right ease for feeling well dressed, able to move, comfortable and office appropriate. The around the knee length makes it feel very fashion forward. The royal blue sleeve and upper chest make the dress interesting. It is not the usual LBD. It is a head-turner. I never got so many compliments before in one day than on the day I wore my RONEN CHEN dress for the first time.

How to style this color block dress

I wore my new RONEN CHEN dress outside on a day with temperatures in the 70s (about 23oC) and it felt very comfortable. No sweating. At the office, the AC was on and I did not feel cold either. The fabric just has the right breath.

My mother always used to say that one can wear dresses only one way. However, Ronen Chen proves the contrary which documents the genius of his designs. This dress – like most of his pieces – is very versatile. This garment is perfect for a summer day at work with pumps and a structured bag or in a very European way, with a scarf and pearls (see above). Another option would be pairing the dress with a belt and cardigan for an informal meeting. On one hand side, you can style it for sightseeing with brogues, for running errands with flat, colored sandals and a bold colored tote. On the other hand, it works for going out (second photo from above) or an informal wedding with a long statement necklace and metallic high heel sandals. In such an outfit, you will stand out of the crowd of LBDs.

A dress great for travel

Since jersey is wrinkle-free you can pack it for a weekend trip or even put it into your beach bag for a stunning outfit for drinks at the beach bar in the evening. Ronen Chen’s design of this dress also reads like an invitation for color blocking with a sunflower yellow bag and neon yellow heels (see below). I will restyle this fabulous dress soon. Thus keep an eye out.

Fashionista of the week

Since I have the dress, I wore it already four times, and I keep getting compliments on the dress every time. The dress made me even a nominee for Fashionista of this week.

Do you have a piece in your closet that in which you gather compliments whenever you wear it? If so: Figure out what makes you look great in an outfit and work from there towards your style to get compliments daily.

This dress is so versatile that there is not only one way to wear it. Thus, I promised you a followup post. Even alone by itself it it already stylish and attention drawing as it looks like a sweater worn under a strapless dress (see photo above) as my friend  Glenda Harrison commented on my google+ post of this dress.

Here another inspiration on how to style this dress.
