Days 1 & 2 of the May NY Shows!

For Helena's the New York shows always start off with a trip to Chelsea to the Designers & Agents show.  The show for emerging, green and independent designers, this show is small, carefully curated, and brimming with creative designs.  We viewed Prairie Underground for Holiday '14, and soaked in all the brilliant energy.

Then, Day 2, we jump into the big-mama of a show, Intermezzo.  This show is packed with the bigger labels including denim, daywear, and lots of accessories! There is a lot of floor to cover, so we called-up our best caffeinated selves, and got started.

Ella Moss showed us intricately detailed holiday wear in cream, burgundy and black.  Lots of beading and mixes of chiffon & knits in sweaters.  

We ordered customer favorite line, Nally & Millie for fall. Our lovely rep, Lilian, who is expecting her second baby next month, pulled out soft cozy sweaters, beautiful print dresses, and print skirts.

Ada Collection is debuting new textures, colors and themes for their belt collection.  We love the studded wrap belts, and the new embossed leathers.  The best find?  This (pictured) perfect jean friendly belt!  We have been on the search for a long time.

And then....there is Joe's Jeans.  Joe's always has a huge selection of new washes and cuts.  The booth was brimming with the best new trends, and new takes on their classic core line of skinny jeans, straight-leg and boot cut.  A great day of buying for the stores and taking in all the new style trends for the coming months!
