As we hear from the ladies in the show Sex and the City, “Each year young 20 something women gather in New York in search of the two L’s: love and labels.” In keeping with that heart, today’s post is all about the labels you will see and when to see them during the Mercedes-Benz Fall Fashion Week in New York from September 8th to the 15th. Man, what I would give to be there right now! Fashion week is an opportunity for over 200 designers to launch their Spring/Summer 2012 collections and for us fashion junkies to get hooked on what we will want to wear after the winter passes. Impractical as runway fashion can be, we decided to unpack a designer each day that has great ready to wear pieces in their collections.
My New Favorite Designer Candela:A collection inspired by Uruguayan designer Gabriella Perezutti, who now lives and works out of New York. Perezutti launched Candela in 2006 and the company has simply boomed ever since. Her pieces are inspired by her equestrian-gaucho past melded with her urban present. In her spring/summer 2011 collections she melds together femininity and tribal patterns to create some really gorgeous pieces. Candela offers a wide variety of ready wear pieces and some absolutely fantastic shoes. Check out the goods on her website. They have an awesome trunk sale going on right now for pieces from the Spring 2011 collection.
