I love the beginning of a new season when stores start receiving boxes and boxes of beautiful new clothes, which never corresponds to when a new season is actually beginning. Stores always receive merchandise about two months prior to when the new season actually starts, hence swimsuits in February. I am always excited and eager to see the new merchandise even when it means tank tops in January and sweaters in August, I guess once a retailer always a retailer!
This would explain why I was particularly tempted to click on an e-mail from Neiman Marcus announcing their Spring Trunk Show of Nanette Lepore. Needless to say I was not disappointed, it was a beautiful collection of cute jackets, great pants, elegant dresses and fun, quirky colors and patterns. Nanette Lepore’s collections always balances feminine details with a seductive sensibility. Her clothes are cutting edge without being too extreme making them fun to wear. Even though it might still be sweater weather Nanette Lepore’s Spring Trunk Show is worth shopping! Available at www.neimanmarcus.com.
