You’re not going to believe it — my little boutique is filled with Fall clothing. Yes, indeed – the entire Fall collection from Lafayette 148 New York arrived yesterday in several black trunks. With my light and happy Spring dresses pushed up front, the back showroom is filled with cayenne, coffee melange, jade, dusk and vermillion cashmeres, fine wools and super knits. With the air conditioning blasting, we are all walking around with our favorite pieces from the collection. Ok, I’ll start with my favorite (which I must have):
The Vintage Lambskin Ochre Leather Jacket $848 at Julia Farr
As I may have mentioned in my last post on Lafayette 148, the designer Edward Wilkerson takes all inspiration for his designs from his global travels. For Fall ’12, the impressions of his tour of Africa influenced his colors, fabrics, prints and designs. The collection is punctuated with animal and reptile prints, a combination of bold colors and earth tones as well as textures that are so sensual. You don’t need to travel to Africa to embrace the experience! (Although I’m completely open to a safari if you are!) Photographed below are some of the lead colors, cuts and looks that we love here at Julia Farr.
Astute Crepe Weave Dress $548
Double Faced Twill Coat $1298
Etched Croc Lambskin Jacket $998
All designs are available at Julia Farr. Our trunk show runs until June 4th. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment, call the boutique at 202-364-3277 or just stop in!
