Lovers of New York darlings Vena Cava should rejoice, cause their new, lower-priced line, Viva Vena!, just hit stores. Using organic jersey mixed with silk details, Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock have created a collection of tees, tanks, and dresses, emblazoned with Vena Cava's signature hand drawn prints. The collection is meant to provide an easy, casual, counterpoint to the dressier Vena Cava line, and everything retails for under $200. My personal favorites are a black jersey dress with a cobwebby print, and a drapey pink tee featuring hands performing sign language. You can find Viva Vena! at Barneys and Opening Ceremony.
