Cynthia Vincent previews are always my favorite, because they are guaranteed to feature bright, colorful clothing in materials I love like velvet, silk, and amazing sheer fabrics.
It was snowing the day of the preview, which honestly, has become beyond annoying. But I found myself wishing Fall would hurry along after looking at so many great jackets and sweaters.
I looove shearling!
Sweaters are always stand out pieces of each season’s collection for me. Cynthia Vincent sweaters are some of the softest I’ve ever felt.
The great thing is each season, the styles continue to stay fresh, and are re-interpreted in new styles and patterns.
I found myself especially drawn to this sweater cape.
It’s so slouchy, it was hard to get a great photograph showing you all of the detail. It really caught my eye, based on the buckles, the length, and the fact that it has fitted sleeves. So many sweater capes are short, making the wearer look stumpy. This one is long, and adds shape and warmth while also remaining lean.
Also important in the colder months– Sequins!
There is plenty of variety in the collection, with styles ranging from the more basic, to intricate patterns:
I got to take a peek at Summer ’11 as well, and snapped some shots of the technicolor patterns that make up a large part of the collection. These are some of my favorites:
It’s always nice when you can buy accessories that compliment your clothing. I was drawn to quite a few pairs of Fall boots, and a bag or two as well:
While you never want to be too matchy-matchy, you can still have fun with the complimentary accessories in the collection:
Small matching details keep things from becoming overwhelming.
Once again, I feel like I’m going to have a huge fashion wish list for fall!
