Sneak Peeks, New Lines & Launches, Oh My!

Hello-Hello!

We are a bit behind (and this is unusual…?), we returned rather late to the Prepatorium after a delightful dinner and auction last night with the Queen Mother and one of TP’s brothers the Princes. No acquisitions, but we certainly saw loads of pretty pieces.

We begin with an early look at the upcoming Burberry cosmetics line:

As StyleList explains:

“The line continues to echo the signature trench, with beige cartons and the proprietary check pattern etched into the cosmetic packaging. The line will include everything from lip liner to foundation to makeup brushes and will sell for about $24 to $60.”

Launching this summer, the line will be available at Nordstrom.

We also have a sneak peek at this fall’s Old Navy collections via Women’s Wear Daily (subscription req’d.).

While we didn’t fall in love with any of the pieces, it’s good to see the retailer’s basics return for another season, like the cotton shirts and bright outerwear.

It appears there are plenty of opportunities for an Adventure in Argyle.

Some looks hold little appeal.

Hhhmmm. The best word we can come up with is underwhelmed.

And finally in fall lines, a possibility for your MOTH, the upcoming Tommy Hilfiger Ivy League line, as covered in this WWD story.

Call us paranoid, but we have this gnawing expectation that somewhere on the apparel we’ll discover a massive logo.

Let’s take at another line launching, but something we can wear now from a brand we trust, Jack Rogers.

We confess to having nary a clue about the noted footwear retailer expanding into apparel until the Coterie Blog mentioned the good news in a Tweet.

There are pieces in all categories including skirts.

Some readers are more likely to think of these when hearing the Jack Rogers name, the brand’s classic Palm Beach Navajo, today’s Pretty in Pink.

We like this one and look forward to seeing the pieces in person.

Now before we say g’bye, a reminder about the Zac Posen for Target collection, it launches Sunday.

It could be fun.

May everyone enjoy a sunny weekend, outside and in!
