Lilly Pulitzer for LeSportSac Early Look, Lacoste Updates

Hello-Hello!

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.

Some readers may recall this line is part of the Lilly Loves Green initiative; some proceeds will go to the World Wildlife Federation.

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!

Fun Interrupted

Hello-Hello! We hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

Remember us nattering on Friday about all the fun activities we had planned for the day? We were going to scamper off to The Big City to do this….

And a little bit of this….

And then go see this….

But none of that happened because we spent the last three days doing this.

And we will be returning there shortly.  Frankly, it all rather has us feeling like this:

(We want to be utterly self-indulgent and let out one big waaaaaaahhhhhhhh! but proper decorum would forbid such conduct.)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In an effort to retain some sense of self-worth, to feel we have something of value to contribute (this is of value?!) , we have scraped together a few of the just-released photos from the upcoming Lilly Pulitzer and MAC cosmetics collaboration, MAC in Lillyland.

The group includes four Lip Gelees, all Limited Editions, all $14. From the left:

  • Lush and Bright (bright pink/yellow coral with pink pearlized pigments)
  • Preppy (blue pink with pink pearlized pigments)
  • Shift to Pink (light violet with silver pearlized pigments)
  • Resort Life (off white with pink pearlized pigments)

And there are two Technakohl Liners designated as part of the Collection, in Graph Black and Purple Rose, but these are permanent items for the MAC line and currently available for sale. Pop over and visit the good folks at both Temptalia and Butterfly Diary for more on the Collection.

Many thanks to everyone for all of your kind emails, Tweets, and messages – we really appreciate the way they make us feel much more like this:

We hope things return to a more normal routine tomorrow. Until then, smiles to everyone!
