Editors Preview Our Fall 2011 Collection

13 Apr

 

Last Thursday, we invited members of the press to the Soho Grand Hotel in NYC for an exclusive cocktail party to present our fall 2011 line.  We got to catch up with our editors while they sipped on champagne and browsed racks of the latest pieces from our men’s, women’s, accessories, and kids’ lines.

The fall women’s collection focuses on the free-spirited sense of adventure that defined pilots Amelia Earhart and Maggie Gee, creating a modern play of masculine and feminine that is truly “Aviator Chic.”  Our men’s collection focuses on traditional fabrics that have been redesigned in a contemporary context to reinvent wardrobe staples that are both rugged and refined.  Key pieces for women this fall include the aviator pant, bootcut and beyond (bootcuts in an array of fabrics and washes), tailored blazers, and cropped pants.  Vintage washes, chinos, and luxe corduroy make up the essential items for men. 

Attendees were loving the collection – tweeting and snapping pics of their favorite pieces while at the preview.  Top pieces included The Skinny in Worn Nakita, Jiselle Flare (a new fit!), corduroy blazers for women, camouflage print utility jacket for men, and distressed men’s jeans.

I’ve posted a few photos to give you a peek at what the editors saw.  What do you think of the fall collection?
