Even in these gray winter days with snow on the ground, spring fashion manages to emerge with a promise of better things to come. NYC boutiques are gearing up for NY Fashion Week and the windows are filled with spring flowers and pastels and bright colors.
Garden florals bloom on coats, dresses, bags and shoes. Butterflies dot fashions in both luxe and bargain markets. We’re loving pastel and lipstick pinks, coral, lemon yellow, pistachio, apricot, periwinkle and robins egg blue - in solid and patterned fabrics and leathers. Embroidery, applique, lace, fringe, torn effects, quilting and pleating all add dimension to matte and shiny fabrics. Ivory, nude and white soothe the palette while black and navy punctuate our early spring fashion parade.
