A French Take on Preppy, J. Crew Bridal Jewelry

Hello-Hello, we hope you are enjoying a simply splendid springtime day!

It’s time for Friday Fun here at the Prepatorium, and we are going to do most of this with minimum blather and maximum images.

It doesn’t get much more fun than this, the very latest from Lilly.

The Lilly Pulitzer Cruiser is available for pre-order only, the real deal arrives August 1. These beauties are being made by the folks at Van Dessel.

Frequent readers know we always love to look at the way other cultures view ‘preppy’.

These images are from the May edition of French Glamour.

The blue and khaki are so vivid they make us dream of the beach.

Next, because we still do not have enough perfume and cologne with celebrity names on them, more perfumes & cologne are being created under celebrities’ names; the latest coming from these two individuals.

Lolavie by Jennifer Anniston will be sold exclusively at one of our favorite places, Harrod’s.

More collaboration news, WWD reports on J. Crew’s partnership with classic costume jeweler Miriam Haskell. Below, a sampling from the new collection.

We are thinking a number of readers possess some treasured Haskell pieces passed on through the generations; we are fortunate to have a few in our jewelry box.  For a bit of background on the Haskell legacy, this piece from our friends at The Daily Basics is worth a read.

And the folks at Barbour have teamed up with handbag designer Anya Hindmarch.

For more, this story in the Telegraph is an excellent read.

And in collaborations we have previously chatted about, don’t forget the Cynthia Vincent for Target footwear line launches Sunday, as well as the retailer’s first limited edition hat collection, with Eugenia Kim for Targét.  Below, three pieces from that collection.

As threatened promised yesterday, we close with a few more images from Monday’s “Last Bark for Bryant Park,” the Fashion Institute of Technology’s second annual pet apparel fashion show.  Below, Lily, a Papillion, sports a “magical flower fairy outfit”. (????)
