Today was full of appointments viewing current lines carried at Mosaic as well as potential new lines for Spring 2015. We started the day at the Empire State building in the Rachel Zoe showroom. Her showroom was just as beautiful and chic as you would imagine. Also, Rachel just happened to be present getting her collection ready for the presentation being held tomorrow. It was very cool to see her in action!
Rachel Zoe’s Ready to Wear collection didn’t dissapoint. There were great pieces that featured beautiful chain detailing and it is very evident that midi length skirts and dresses will be all the rage for Spring 2015. She also threw a dash of animal print in there, which of course I have no objection to!
Her shoe collection was out of this world. I literally could take one of each style.
We then headed over to the 10 Eleven showroom! It is housed in a historic building in Bryant Park and has so much character. This showroom is home to many wonderful brands.
The first line we viewed there was Equipment. We just started carrying Equipment in the store and it has been uber successful! The silhouettes fit everyone well and the silk in thicker, therefore making it flattering and pieces that will hold up over time. They are truly investment pieces. Not to mention, they have the best prints!
These were just a few of our favorites!
Next up was Elle Sasson, a new line for Mosaic. It was whimsical and fun and featured some unique prints with intricate beading and embroidery.
I absolutely loved the presence of flamingos in the collection! How fun is this outfit?
If you get an up close view of the flamingo shorts you realize how detailed the embroidery is and how much work went into them.
Tanya Taylor, another new line, was beautiful and I loved the color combinations she used. Pops of bright flourescent orange were present in many of the pieces.
Here are a couple of my favorite looks from her runway show!
I had been looking forward to viewing A.L.C. and it was even prettier than I would have expected. Their graphic floral print was great and it is going to be very hard narrowing down the line. We loved so many things!
After spending several hours at 10 Eleven we had worked up an appetite! Luckily, the Bryant Park Grill was right outside the door. We snacked on a delicious desert and drank much needed coffees!
Our last appointment of the day was Nicole Miller! Her inspiration for the Spring 2015 collection came from some of her recent travels to Rio de Janeiro. There were many playful silhouettes and enticing tropical floral prints featuring shades of peach, jade and coral. Doesn’t this entrance into her showroom make you want to take a little trip?
My favorite looks from her Spring 2015 collection included these three!
Tomorrow will be our last day in the city…..until next week! We will end this trip on a high note by viewing Mara Hoffman, Dannijo and Rebecca Minkoff’s collections!! Stay tuned!
