Last year, pandemic life presented a style conundrum that stumped even the foremost fashion authorities: What’s the dress code? For Beth Buccini, the bold-faced force behind luxury womenswear boutique Kirna Zabête ( for over two decades, the answer was a new business venture. “I found there were items I wanted to wear but we hadn’t bought them,” says Buccini, who, in addition to Bryn Mawr Village, oversees locations in NYC’s Soho, East Hampton and Palm Beach. “So I decided to make them instead.” And with that, Kirna Zabête’s namesake label was born. Buccini launched the collection last summer with a trio of house dress designs in stretch cotton poplin named after her daughters, followed by T-shirts and masks made from organic cotton shortly after. This month, Buccini releases her take on the sweatsuit, featuring three Zoom-ready looks with elevated details, and a collection of stretch silk styles ripped straight from the ’90s. If you’re missing those halcyon days, Buccini is confident that you’ll be able to wear a Kirna Zabête slip dress with a pair of skyhigh stilettos soon enough. “Remember, after the Spanish flu and World War 1 came the Roaring ’20s!”
