Sneak Peek at Lafayette 148’s New Fall Line

Pieces from the Lafayette 148 New York 2011 Fall Collection (click to enlarge)

It’s hard to look at fall and winter clothes when the heat is boiling at 90 degrees like it will be today. But fall clothes are filing into stores, and Cincy Chic got a sneak peek into Lafayette 148‘s newest collection at Saks downtown.

In my last blog about Lafayette’s Designer Edward Wilkerson, I told you that new collections are inspired by his world travels. The last blog was about the “Sistine style” inspired by his trip to Rome. This new collection is inspired by his recent trip to India.

The collection is comprised of separates in warm chocolate brown, cool cream and deep red. You’ll find classic red coats and capes, slacks in sophisticated fabrics and blouses in elegant cuts. And Lafayette is known for its beautiful feminine separates, novelty embellished pieces, exquisite leathers, and luxe knitwear. Fun fact: Lafayette 148’s knitwear is made in-house by their couture knitters!

So, this new fall line is in town (at the downtown Saks) for a trunk show just for a short while this weekend and then they’ll be introducing new pieces from the line into the stores each month. Lafayette is also doing the ATP fashion show again – I covered it last year here – so I’m excited about that! It was a great show last year!

Check out the video below where Ilene Ross, my Cincy Chic Show co-host, interviews a Lafayette 148 New York rep about the new line, and gets a sneak peek at some of the new fab pieces!
