The insanity seems to be ebbing here at Princess InterPlanetary HQ, phew! Now we move on to one of our favorite wintertime sports: extreme baking. (The Consort will politely confirm this is no exaggeration. Simply step away from the computer and say a prayer of gratitude you aren’t a recipient of one of our cookie plates.)
But before that gets underway, a few morsels of info and lots of pictures to kick-start things before our Christmas break. We begin with an early look at the Lilly Pulitzer for LeSportsac collection, compliments of the folks at M.I.S.S. & JuxtaPoz.
As previous posts described, the Collection pops with bright colors and the inimitable Lilly style.
Our favorite pattern is probably going to be the green and white Hip Hop Hooray (L), although we like the blue and coral in Purrr-fect Patch as well.
Purrr-fect Patch is slated to hit LeSportsac and Lilly stores in March, with She’s A Piston (shown below) scheduled for an April launch. This design is so fun we’re making it today’s Pretty in Pink.
This is just one of the Lilly collaborations headed our way next year, the M.A.C. in Lillyland cosmetics are also on the way, scheduled to debut January 7. The Cut blog offers the following on this line:
“But M.A.C. added a much-needed dose of coolness to the pink-and-green paisley label; the products are bright, fun, and of course, colorful (it is M.A.C. after all).”
Not to be forgotten, the spring collection of Lilly stationery and gifts are being readied – can you say plates and market totes?! (If you aren’t on the Lilly Stationery & Gifts mailing list, just click here to sign up for the latest on new offerings and special deals from the Princess.)
Also donating funds to a good cause, Lacoste.
The company plans to give $500,000 to help preserve the Gange gharial crocodile; above, Michael Lacoste is seen holding one of these. As this story in WWD explains, the Gange gharial is known for “…its long, slender mouth with fully visible teeth.” Perfect for this brand!
Women’s Wear Daily also reported this week that Lacoste plans to expand its shoe offerings for childrens and juniors, including infants; good news, unless perhaps one is a parent responsible for putting said footwear on those little feet.
We also have word of several more celebrity perfumes in the works. Because there are not enough on the market.
- Eva by Eva Longoria Parker is scheduled for a spring launch
- Danica Patrick will debut Danica Patrick for Her in mid-March
- Beyonce’s perfume, Heat, goes on sale in February
Holiday activities around the world are always fun to see, especially when they involve royalty. (The real kind.) Below, Princess Caroline of Hanover and her daughter, Princess Alexandra, head to the annual Christmas tree lighting in Monaco.
Gifts are handed out to Monegasque children at the ceremony. The next photo features Princess Caroline of Hanover Prince Albert II, and Princess Stephanie.
We leave you a look at Montauk Light, also dressed to celebrate the season.
We hope everyone stays warm and safe, wreathed in smiles. (Silly Princess.)
EDITOR’S NOTE: In case you miss it, Kim at M.I.S.S. was good enough to leave a comment indicating Hip Hop Hooray is not being produced. So much for our favorite pattern! And our thanks to Kim for the info!
