  • Window-Shopping in Europe: Houndstooth, Herringbone, Glen Plaids

    “We love the graphic impact of houndstooth, herringbone, and exaggerated glen plaids in black and white mixed with each other or with other black and white graphic patterns. We also love bright accents inspired by the seventies to mix with these black and white altered classics. Think hot pink, royal blue, red, or pastels to punctuate this contemporary look. Varying scales is another way to keep this look fresh… consider micro to macro and hard-edged to blurred-edge for dynamic texture.”



  • Window-Shopping in Europe: Winter Pales and Pastels

    “Winter pales almost become a ‘neutral’ option for the season. Our favorites include lemon, banana, melon, ice pink, lavender, menthe, celadon, seafoam, and baby blue. Perfect for lofty and warm-faced fabrics like cashmere, angora, mohair, feathers, faux fur, velvet, jersey, corduroy, and suede, pales may also be used on lustrous surfaces like charmeuse and patent leather to fantasy fabrics like tulle, chiffon, and brocade. Inspired by sweet shops serving up gelato to macaroons, these ladylike pales are a welcomed relief from the cold, dark winter weather.”



  • Window-Shopping in Europe: Purples and Pinks

    “Perfectly feminine and fashionably impactful, violets and pinks steal the show this fall in mixes with neutrals and each other for the ultimate in chic fall fare. Ideal for accessories, we like lace, suede, leather, and sequins for bags, shoes, and gloves; in ready-to-wear, we love this range for novelty color-blocked knits to unforgettable jackets and coats. Also consider this range for the perfect little dress to a luscious cashmere wrap or muffler. For a less dramatic look, consider muted or frosted versions of pinks and violets, and for the optimal effect, choose electric versions.”



  • Window-Shopping in Europe: Halloween Inspiration

    “To our surprise, Halloween inspirations were alive and well across the pond. Some of our favorites include the SmartCar in high-velocity orange, leopard spots printed over vibrant orange twinned with grey, the brown and orange color-blocked satchel, oversized rag dolls dressed in high couture, the Louis Vuitton gilded handcuffs and corseted shag coat, and the seventies-inspired crocheted mini in shades of tangerine and blood orange. Get your ghoul on stylishly – never forsake fashion when putting together your Halloween costume.”



  • Window-Shopping in Europe: Metallic and Shine

    “The message for metallics this fall is selecting one perfect star of the show in a lustrous or metallic medium. Our favorites include sequins for day and night, crinkle metallic leathers, lurex and lame, prysmic metal metallics for bags, metallic washes on knits and wovens, metallic fringe, and unexpected materials like bubble-wrap faced with metallic gold for an avant-garde bag option. Metallics range from burnished (anthracite, steel, pewter, and brass) to high-polished, high-luster golds, silvers, and newest – copper. Metallics take their cue from exotic cultures to eras gone by, best reinterpreted in just the right silhouette for contemporary dressing.”
