Market Watch: Joy Cioci

 Joy Cioci blue dress fur coat

Wouldn't you love to wear some Olivier Theyskens or Tom Ford right now? I can't be the only one who longs for their clothes. This is where Joy Cioci comes in. She just launched her eponymous line and studied under both designers. Her sexy, tailored clothes are evidence of that.

Joy's Cara coat (I know, a coat I love, big surprise) comes with a removable fur collar and has a ruffled bottom ($1,295). Normally I'm not a ruffles kind of gal, but these are kind of lovely; they lay low and don't flare out.

There were a couple completely sheer dresses that were pretty, albeit impractical. I'm a little tired of the sheer trend; all that layering is so tiresome. That said, I thought her Lyn dress ($495) was a bright offering for Fall. Its electric blue hue stands out, and depending on what you wear underneath, you can mute the dress or make it as loud as you like. Options are what this season is all about.

The items hit stores in September.
