Greetings from the NY Shows! This will seem totally crazypants, but we are buying for late fall/ holiday. (It's the way this business works, sisters. Not a live-in-the-moment industry). We started the day at D&A in Chelsea, which is a relaxed and charming show of smaller independent designers.
Prairie Underground looks sweet and modern, with some sophisticated hemp/silk pieces to round out the collection. We love the Gibson Blouse in Rose, and there are some new knock-your-socks off coats (we are talking to you Mid-Frock Coat!). The holiday jacket colors include customer-favorite hues: Inkpot, Lipstick, and Faded Iris!
Another favorite collection was the fall line from Utility Canvas which showed striking yet wearable prints in jackets, dresses and skirts. We love the vintage roots of this line. Knit line Stewart & Brown was also on our list of fall favorites!
