The AvA Holiday 2022 collection is a modern, versatile, and unexpected take on classic festive dressing. In contrasting shades of black and white, each style feels at once formal yet relaxed and embodies a sense of seasonal cheer absent of traditional hues.

“I didn’t want to do green simply because it’s a holiday color,” says Ala. “Rather, I love having black and white in the collection, and since holiday is a more formal time of year, this color combination always feels dressier to me.”
New holiday styles abound, each in a reversible Zampa Bianca or Zampa Nera print with white on black or black on white featuring oversized monstera leaves. The Mariah Silk Shell Tank Top and matching wide leg Fernanda Silk Pant makes a fun statement look, while the Giana Cotton Blouse in Zampa Bianca is a festive piece complete with organza detailing around the neck and cuffs and accents any of our AvA Essentials in new Deserto Black. An entire organza assortment adds a special flair to the collection, such as the Sienna Silk Organza Duster, the Francesca Silk Organza Blazer and the Lucia Silk Organza Bolero. Each piece pairs well as a set or on its own.
“This is my vision of casual entertaining at home but dressier,” says Ala. “Again, it’s the versatility of being able to reverse a print. It encompassees the formal and less formal. You can keep it fun by using one piece with a solid, or take it all the way and layer everything together.”
As for where Ala plans on wearing the holiday collection, the answer is everywhere. From snow country to the bright lights of the city, these styles feel at home anywhere the AvA woman finds herself. “This collection isn’t so super specific,” says Ala. “It has a wow factor I love, and it’s a bit theatrical, so you can be going out with these pieces or staying in. It’s just a great time to get dressed and celebrate.”
