This photograph features the New York State I Voted sticker from last week’s election day, honouring 100 years of women’s right to vote in the United States. Voting day ensemble includes garments from the new Fall/Winter 2017-18 Collection – the Pineyrie Jacket in Tilled Field/Pewter Knit with the Limited Edition Blanchefleur Frock in River Houndstooth Rustic Cotton. The Attic Scarf from years back (from Collection One – 2010) is worn around the neck.
These garments were ordered to be worn just as you see them here. The Cozette Skirt was also chosen to be worn with other garments like the Hambledon Duster Coat, Truitt Jacket, Holkham Hall Vest, and Amorette Shirt Jacket to name a few. This is a great example of a “starter set” in Ivey Abitz where you can easily expand your wardrobe with just one ensemble. Mixing and matching possibilities are plentiful.
Holkham Hall Shirt in Black and White Striped Cotton Scrim
Holkham Hall Necktie in Black and White Plaid Cotton Voile
Cavendish Cardigan in Black Checked Netting
Cozette Skirt in Signature Black Ribbed Weave

This just shipped out…
The Addy in plaid, as well as our other frocks, have been the go-to frock of the season. Here’s another ensemble that was just made for a client, combining our Foggy Cotton Velvet Corduroy with our Foggy/Black Soft Plaid Cotton. A Baedeker Scarf in our Signature Black Ribbed Weave is as comfortable and versatile as it is lovely draped around the neck. The bias cut pleating in our Mathilda designs feature the variegated cording in the cotton velvet, making a striking addition to the ensemble.

When you have a goal, such as collecting Ivey Abitz, it always helps to envision it in completion. Here is a vision of the Blanchefleur Vest in Regal Rosa Cotton Brocade transformed from a sample at IveyAbitz.com to a box for shipping to your door. Although in this case it could only be shipped to one lucky shopper’s door because it was a one-of-a-kind piece, you now have a vision of what is in store…
We’ve opened up the Ivey Abitz archives and found over 90 rare samples that were used in look book photo shoots from 2009-2010. All are unique. Many are made in fabrics that sold out and cannot be obtained. Here are a few.
As a side note, we’ve just begun pinning on Pinterest. We’d love for you to join us by following us there. It would look very elegant to have your own board dedicated to Ivey Abitz!
And now…some samples.
Ivey Abitz clothing is usually presented on a dress form, but this photo shoot provided special images for the home page of the website as well as newsletters. So this is a rare glimpse of behind-the-scenes real people – and dogs – interacting with the collection.
What are these beautiful dogs doing in this photo shoot?
The color pallette of this collection is based on the coloring of these two beautiful dogs, Wolfie and Artie. They are the objects of Cynthia’s love and affection. Their beauty and unconditional love is a source of inspiration. They are rescues from a puppy mill. (Shameless plug for animal rights – spay and neuter your animals and never buy an animal from a pet store!)
The main colors of Collection One 2012:
- Wolfgang Grey
- Arthur Brown
