With Spring almost here, I feel it's time to burst out with the spring pinks and greens -- there was just something about all the rain and gray days here in So Cal this winter that has caused me to pretty much fast forward mentally to nearly summer. So without further ado, we dress for Spring, then bikini for Summer and what do you know, it's already fall again. Designers know that they must get the best out for fall early so all buyers and trendsetters will include their pieces for that season as the must haves. I mean the magazines are surely well into summer issues and I'm sure with NY Fashion Week just finished up in February, fall coats and amazing outerwear are on the mind.
Mackage Fall 2009
So, while you're reading along in your sundress and espadrilles, check out Mackage's Fall/Winter 2009 collection, Mackage.com. The runway show at Bryant Park on February 18th featured coats for men and women with a glamorous rock and roll edge. Mackage is celebrating their 10 year anniversary designing, so why not rock out and celebrate with one of their fantastic high collared coats or a shiny zip-up jacket for a hipster day in Soho look you can wear in LA or Kansas City... think uber chic Kansas.
Erin Lucas, from the show The City on MTV was in attendance at the show, confirming that yes, everyone is looking forward to fall... already! Designers Elisa Dahan and Eran Elfassy of Mackage approach outerwear with the idea that it is a key part to being totally fashionable and not just another hoodie to throw on with jeans or oversized trench coat to keep off the rain - thank goodness for these saviors of season!
Mackage, being exclusively the only outerwear brand to show at NY Fashion Week this year, also contributes to the greater good! By hosting a coat drive with Housing Works in NYC, those who don't have that extra layer of warmth and fashion will be overwhelmed with all the coats New Yorkers were encouraged to drop off. Check out the celebrity donations of Mackage coats to Housing Works at ShopHousingWorks.com. With all this talk of fall, I'm off to warm up at the beach... you know it is only March.
