While the newness and whimsical quality of novelty creations might fade quickly for some, it’s the uniqueness of this quirky genre that seems to linger for designer Sasha Bikoff. A Brigitte Bardot-inspired toile. A pink velvet reminiscent of her of signature lip gloss. And a soft, inky textile inspired by a coat custom-made for her in Paris four years ago that looks like crushed diamonds glimmering against a black night sky. It’s all a part of the bold new collection for Vervain.

The Francophile often weaves notes of Parisian whimsy into her work, and Uptown Toile is no exception. Reading like a vintage, coquettish comic, we get a glimpse of what Bikoff says is, “A girl living her best life in toile.”
Favorite things features influential design symbols and iconic silhouettes that creatively converge on one linen ground. Croissants, topiaries, gold pineapples, Herend kissing swans, and Jean Paul Gaultier’s Madonna corset all happily reside alongside one another in various colors.
Lipgloss is a saturated hot pink panné velvet that evokes a perfect, sultry pout. Inspired by actress Jayne Mansfield's lavish home affectionately known as "The Pink Palace," the sumptuous texture and beaming color of Lipgloss embodies the Hollywood bombshell's love of glamour and feminine interiors designed to make a statement.
