what can be better on a snowy afternoon during fashion week than hot tea, vanilla cupcakes, champagne and our latest girl crush Saloni Lodha? It was the perfect gathering in the back of Gemma to view Saloni’s Fall collection along with her short film to go along. A long list of ladies attended including: Poppy Delevigne, Meredith Melling Bourke, Joanna Hillman, Zann Rassi and Caroline Issa.
We are beside ourselves to be adding Saloni to our list of designers on LN this fall!! Her dresses are perfect for any soiree!
In a season of khaki green army jackets, Rag & Bone’s regal Cravat Coat takes the military trend to a chic new level. We want to be in this camp…
The nautical look is having a major revival this spring. Just about every fashion magazine has covered the trend in some way or another. So as not to go “overboard” with the stripes and navy this season, try Lucky market editor, Jenny Kang’s spin on the trend – Tough Nautical. Blur the lines with sequin and leather for a fresh interpretation.
Shop our YACHT ROCK boutique for a curated selection of nautical pieces to anchor your look!
Sigh…to inherit a wardrobe of impeccable clothes from a wealthy great aunt in Greenwich! That was the inspiration for Bensoni’s fall presentation, and Blair Waldorf might very well have been the bequeathed upon muse for this chic UES collection. Benjamin Channing Clyburn and Sonia Yoon took all of the classic elements of a socialite’s uniform – Chanel tweeds, rich brocades, luxe furs…and made them modern and slightly quirky. We wanted to play dress up in everything…and come fall you will too!
Hints of military and grunge defined Gryphon’s Fall 10 collection. Designer Aimee Cho manages to interpret two rather hardcore, masculine themes into lovely and wearable clothes with a serious “it girl” factor. Pictured above in her sunlit drenched showroom adorned with curious objects and vintage finds, Cho is the line’s perfect muse.
Alex & Eli’s spring collection is like fashion Legos. Everything effortlessly snaps together! The striped tunic pairs perfectly with the slinky shorts, and the studded tank can be layered over the cherry slip dress and topped off with boxy topper….or the shorts cinched over the tank with the topper…or the tunic layered under the topper! Brilliant, yet hardly surprising when you take into account the labels’ genius designers. Parsons grads, Anna and Aja, continue to create cohesive and sophisticated collections that manage to break through the fashion clutter. Their quality and attention to detail is in line with RTW designers twice their price point, and their fashion point of view is refreshing and utterly wearable.
Here are a few images from their spring presentation. In keeping with the understated Studio 54 theme of the collection, it was hosted in an abandoned 70s sex club on a shady stretch of 11th Avenue complete with a brass champagne fountain and a DJ spinning in a drained Grecian pool. Weird and wonderful!
