We Heart Luella

-------

2009 wasn’t the kindest year to designers, but we were particularly sad to see Luella Bartley‘s beloved and oh-so-Brit label lose its financial backing. Her sixties-inspired Spring 2010 collection won’t make it to stores, but we found an almost perfect stand-in for her girlish dresses. This gingham number, complete with a heart cutout in back, might not be as sweet as a party frock from Luella herself, but at only $54 it’s impossible to pass up. Click the image to shop.

Winner Takes All: 5 Picks for Red Carpet Glamour

Come Sail Away

-------

Breton stripe shirts are a classic, but they’re having a particularly big moment right now. The cool girls love them (see Keira Knightley and, bien sûr, the French Voguettes), and so do designers. Donna Karan packed a number of nautical-striped pieces into her DKNY collection for pre-fall. Ditto Phoebe Philo at Celine. While there are scads of trendy takes on the shirt, we particularly love this Balenciaga top for its simplicity. Pair with jeans and flats and you’ll be ready for a stroll on the pier or the pavement. Click the image to shop.

Modern Art

-------


We may live and die by our dark denim jeans, but Spring’s embellished /distressed /bleached trend has us questioning our plain pairs. In particular, we have our eyes on Alexander McQueen’s Pollock-esque cropped pants from Resort.The saturated wash balances the haphazard paint splatters, while the details (ankle zippers, quilted knee patches) will keep us from looking like an art-school urchin. Any day now, the gallery invites should start flooding our inbox. Click the image to shop.
