Welcome, Nevada Duffy!

The Signet Bureau designers and staff would like to welcome a new designer now stocking at our boutique, Nevada Duffy!

Since the late 1990's Nevada Duffy's vision of modern minimalism balances toughness and fluidity to create sleek, structured silhouettes that evokes a quiet glamor. Underlying Nevada's practice is a focus on pushing the limits by playing with new shapes and proportions.

The current range for Spring/Summer 2011-12 plays with form and volume to create a range of tailored ease. Shifting from lady like to louche, fitted party frocks and tops and blouson pants in silk, jersey and lace, the garments combine wearability and elegance.

Spring/Summer 2011-12 styles by Nevada Duffy are now available in the shop. For more on Nevada Duffy, visit out blog : www.thesignetbureau.blogspot.com or visit her website at : www.nevadaduffy.com.

Plus, tonight is a special welcome evening with 20% off all stock including MM Sohn, Robyn Black and Preston Zly. Come and meet Nevada and have a glass of bubbly to celebrate this summer season.
