424 Fifth’s Latest Collection Has Everything You Need For Fall

424 Fifth‘s Fall 2014 lookbook landed in our inbox back in June, right when summer was finally hitting and we were in no mood to think about sweater weather. But now that summer’s end is drawing near and we’re reminded of just how much we love autumn dressing, our eyes are on the prize: pretty much every piece in 424 Fifth’s latest collection.

There’s the plaid felt sweater at the very top of our wish list, the burned-out-rose midi skirt right below it, the leather bodice jumpsuit, the rose-embellished sweater dress…the list goes on. And did we mention the shoes, the Lord & Taylor private brand’s newest venture? The footwear styles are as to-die-for as their apparel counterparts.

We can’t wait to get our shop on. Check out the gallery below for the complete 424 Fifth Fall 2014 lookbook – are you loving the collection as much as we are?

Coveting from the Backseat: Lord & Taylor 424 Fifth Spring 2014 Collection

There’s a new girl in town, and we’re officially obsessed with her. Hudson’s Bay has exclusively launched 424 Fifth, a new private label offering ultra chic and on trend fashion apparel that’s right up our alley – and we suspect yours too.

Our Spring 2014 wish list is incredibly long; the line may be brand spanking new, but it’s already proving to be very covetable. We’re dying to get our hands on the photoreal jacket and matching skirt (because we’ve never met a beach scene print we didn’t like), the satin birdcage skirt (blue sky or electric cherry? decisions, decisions…), and the white laser cut pencil skirt (to. die. for.). Check out the gallery below for the complete lookbook and start penciling in your wish list.

Peter Pilotto for Target – The Complete Lookbook and Collection!

Ever since we got a little sneak peek of the upcoming Peter Pilotto for Target collaboration last month, we’ve been anxious to see the rest of the collection, and today our long wait has finally come to an end: the complete collection and lookbook have been unveiled.

Design duo Christopher De Vos and Peter Pilotto have created a 60+ piece line-up with their signature bold, brightly-coloured prints – this time surf-inspired. Said De Vos, “The starting point was swimwear, and we were very happy that we could do it first with Target. We found it exciting to build the looks around that category. That was the idea that there are all these pieces in swimwear like rash guards and tops that you build an outfit around.”

The rash guards don’t quite make our wish list (truthfully, we had to google ‘rash guard’), but more than a few of the blouses, skirts and dresses definitely do. Maybe even a pair of sunglasses to complete the look. Pricing will be very pocketbook-friendly, ranging from $14.99 to $79.99 for apparel and swimwear and $16.99 to $39.99 for accessories.

The collection launches in Target stores and online at and on February 9, so mark your calendars if you haven’t already. Which pieces will you be braving the line-up outside your local Target store for?

So Isabel Marant for H&M has come and gone, and you’re in search of a new high-low collaboration to obsess about and we’ve got the answer: L’Wren Scott for Banana Republic.

H&M Spring 2013 Collection – Press Preview and Complete Lookbook

At the H&M Spring 2013 preview this week, a bohemian style for the 21st century translated into sporty and relaxed shapes embellished with tassels (one can never have too many), fringes, and embossed details.

The fresh sun-bleached and neutral tones of the collection are highlighted in the gray denim jacket with quilted shoulders and gorgeous brocade print blouse and matching shorts, while vibrant reds and oranges embolden the tassel skirt with embellished waist and the statement brocade jacket. There are so many great pieces in this spring collection, but the standouts for me are the black embossed leather jacket and the studded white denim vest. Can’t you just imagine these on the lead singer of a band who gets asked to play at fashion shows in New York or Paris?

The accessories in the collection are just as stellar. I’m loving the tassel handbags, the metal toecap cowboy ankle boots, and the pineapple earrings. It is an undeniable fact that pineapples make better sartorial motifs than any other fruit (bananas are a close second). If you agree, you’ll be happy to know that there is also a cute bracelet with pineapple charms and a shirt with the fruit printed on it. Tassels, pineapples, brocade…it’s not even winter yet, but I’m ready for spring.
