Time and time again we're advised to not judge books by their covers. In no place is this clearer than with the womenswear label Costello Tagliapietra, helmed by Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra. Together the pair have created collections that are both feminine and languid -- often noted for its wearability, clever use of color, and sophisticated construction. “Our only aim is to make women beautiful," they told us back in 2009.
