For Fall 2008, Revival marries ladylike sophistication with conspicuous style. For the adventurous, there's harlequin party dresses and shift dresses with indulgent dynasty sleeves. For the more demure, classic wool suiting finds a perfect match in tonal silk charmeuse. Drawing inspiration from Dolly Parton in 9-to-5 and Melanie Griffifth in Working Girl , REVIVAL glorifies the feminine power of women played out in witty acts of deviance. As always, REVIVAL offers an exhilarating twist on favorites from past eras
REVIVAL is currently available in store and online at Lola y Maria, 175 Rivington Street, NYC 10002

Robert Altman, US, 1993, 187m
“Some films can lay claim to being the best thing around in a week, a month, a year. Robert Altman’s Short Cuts is closer to being one of the all-time bests, among the finest American films since the advent of sound.” - Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
Fifteen years since its release, many lesser imitations and ensemble films have come and gone, but Short Cuts remains the standard. Based on the writings of Raymond Carver, it masterfully interweaves stories of disconnection and discontent between several L.A.-based characters: a pool cleaner dealing with the frustration of his wife’s job as a sex-phone operator, a doctor struggling with the infidelity of his wife, a philandering cop tyrannically ruling his family, and a news anchorman grappling with his wife over their child’s hospitalization. Boasting an all-star cast including Tim Robbins, Julianne Moore, Jack Lemmon, Tom Waits, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Matthew Modine, Lili Taylor, Robert Downey, Jr. and Annie Ross, among many others, the film garnered several ensemble acting awards, opened the 31st New York Film Festival and won the Golden Lion at Venice.
