Fall Sweater Roundup



Stella McCartney Tartan Intarsia Jumper

The rainy weather has us dreaming of cozy nights in, but we can’t get away with huddling indoors all winter long. Although hibernation sounds nice, the next best thing is stocking our closet with cool-weather items to keep us warm and chic. Sweaters, whether they are chunky knits or paper-thin turtle necks, are our favorite way to stay warm when temperatures plummet. The perfect accompaniment to skirts, pants or tights, sweaters easily transition from toasty offices to the chilly outdoors. Here are just a few knits that are on our radar this season.

Others we love:

- Saint Laurent the Classic Oversize V Cardigan

- Tory Burch Cashmere Deanna Sweater

- rag & bone Claire Pullover

Anne Fontaine Fall 2013

anne fontaine

We’re inspired by fall 2013 from Anne Fontaine.  For this new collection, Anne Fontaine drew inspiration from the modern Parisian - an androgynous and sexy woman, who loves contrasts and ambiguity.  She is elegant, simple, modern, curious, and passionate.  She is a woman who knows what she wants.  The collection graciously combines femininity and masculinity - it’s a marriage of subtle sensuality and straighter cuts.  We hope you enjoy the mix of light fabrics like silk, organza, embroidery, reinterpreted lace, transparent chiffon, and minimal forms (sometimes heavy, oversize, and more enveloping - thicker fabrics like leather).

The black and white in the collection perfectly illustrates this search for contrast.  It’s punctuated with flashes of electric blue and orange.  Shop the new styles of tuxedo trousers, large men’s overcoats or suit jackets, and ultrafeminine pieces like mid-length and maxi dresses, tunics, and light, flounced, pleated, soufflé, embroidered skirts, and lace and transparency.
