Brooks Brothers Spring Preview

Hello, happy Wednesday!

Just when we needed a little bright and sunny pick-me-up, we fell upon this at Brooks Brothers (in a cyber manner of speaking):

Brooks Brothers

The company’s Spring Preview is now online.

Brooks Brothers

Men’s designs are also shown.

Many looks were shown in our ‘sneak peek’ at the line back in September, for that post, click here.  A few more men’s styles.

Brooks Brothers

Here are more photos from that September post.

We were particularly intrigued by the heavy nautical influence seen throughout the collection.

The seafaring motif is also evident in the children’s styles.

Brooks Brothers

We like many pieces already shown in this year’s Resort Collection, including the Girl’s Striped Sailor Dress and the Boy’s Embroidered Swim Trunks, both items available now.

One quick aside, like so many other shops, Brooks is doing its semi-annual clearance (including goods for the Young Man & Miss at your palace) and there are some amazing savings, especially on Black Fleece.


In other news (ahem, there’s a loose interpretation of that word), yet another update on one of our original Anti-Preps. It seems that the Kardashians have a rather large clothing line launching at Sears.  More from Women’s Wear Daily:

“The seemingly ubiquitous reality television sisters, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe, are set to unveil merchandise on a bigger retail stage when the Kardashian Kollection launches exclusively at 400 Sears doors in August…”

“The Kardashian Kollection is the latest in a Kardashian fashion and beauty empire that started with the Kardashians by Bebe line, which finishes with resort 2011. Among other things, Kim and mother Kris Jenner are spokeswomen for Skechers’ Shape-ups; the sisters front an apparel line sold on QVC called K-Dash; Kim Kardashian has a namesake perfume and is the face of FusionBeauty’s lip plumpers…”

We giggled when reading a friend’s comment on the upcoming launch: “They are Paris Hilton with boobs.”  Ms. Hilton is yet another of our original Anti-Preps.


We have a couple of quick links for Lilly lovers to enjoy, the first is a story in Lonny magazine’s latest issue, “Pulitzer Prize“.

Lonny Magazine

The story focuses on just how the design team comes up with all of the different patterns and pieces for the multiple collections and pieces. Fashion Director Janie Schoenborn is featured, as are many others, and it is a delightful read.

Lonny Magazine

The second link is to a piece in The Daily Basics on the Lilly spring line of home goods at Garnet Hill, with loads of fodder for our Pretty in Pink and Green list!


Our final photo symbolizes our sympathy for all of our friends coping with the insane amounts of snow, some of it in the strangest of places.


The Mittens Charm may be found at Tiffany.

When Logos Go Bad & Hamptons Habitats


We are brief today, in large part because The Consort and I the Princess Elves must deal with this:

Princess InterGalactic HQ

That is but a portion of the 300+ pounds of Lilly Pulitzer Fall 2010 goodies, along with ribbon belts, preppy totes and other treasures the UPS man dropped off today.  Sadly, Tilly doesn’t quite seem… well… she doesn’t appear to be engaged with the task at hand.

"Where's my biscuit?"


We begin with a follow-up to a previous post about the topic of a hypothetical decline in the popularity of designer logos; today’s story comes via the Telegraph, on the far side of the pond.  We offer the following from the paper’s story, “Designer logos are a fashion no-go“:

“Handbags and accessories with large logos are being removed from designers’ collections to be replaced with more subtle designs as part of a move for “antibling” fashion.”

The Telegraph story uses an image featuring one of our original AntiPreps, below we see Paris Hilton with her Louis Vuitton handbag and bathing suit in 2006 and on the right, a new bag from Louis Vuitton.

REX Features via The Telegraph

The story is pegged to a quote from the CEO of Vuitton’s parent company suggesting logos are shrinking and/or disappearing. (That quote was mentioned briefly in this post.)

“His admission was an extraordinary turning point in the top-tier designer industry, where design labels have made billions of pounds by having accessories with big logos showcased by rappers, footballers’ wives and socialites.”

Below, Farandole Strass rings by Vuitton.

In the story, the Telegraph’s fashion director is quoted:

“This really began the day Daniella Westbrook was pictured head to toe in the Burberry check. The shift has been taking place for some time.”

Below, Ms. Westbrook in the ensemble under discussion.

To be sure, this….


is a vast improvement over this.


The subject seems to be gaining traction, another UK paper had a story on the topic today; The Mail’s story is titled, “Stealth wealth: Why the label to have this season is no label at all as consumers turn their back on logo-heavy designers”.  That story also uses a photo of another member of the Anti-Prep Wall of Shame, “Snooki” and her Gucci handbag.

PHOTO: Xposure via The Daily Mail

Clearly we are intrigued to see how this plays out, do let us know your thoughts on the topic, and what you are seeing in your corner of the globe. We are guessing this isn’t exactly your vision of the ideal decor for your domicile.




One other quick note we meant to include yesterday, spotted when perusing Vanity Fair; the magazine has a pretty feature, “Behind the Hamptons Hedges“. The piece showcases eight individuals who spend significant time in the area, like polo player Nic Roldan….
Alix Smith/Vanity Fair

… and Dylan Lauren, photographed at the Dylan’s Candy Bar in East Hampton.

We’re off to have a little talk with Tilly about her work ethic.

We’ll see you next time, probably Monday!

The Tilly & Consort Workout

Hello-hello, The Consort here slipping mikeside to entertain and confuse while The Princess enjoys a quick trip to the East Coast.  She’ll be back in a couple of days and that means you and I get to spend some quality time together.  Let’s begin the fun, shall we?

You’ve all been enjoying the antics of Tilly the Bulldog.  She’s keeping busy these days with all her meals, naps and sunbathing.  Tilly is a busy dog but I noticed she is beginning to lose her hourglass figure.  Not that she’s not in shape, mind you.  Round is a shape and Tilly is certainly round.  It was clear that it was time to trim some of Tilly’s extra baggage so I decided to launch her on a grueling yoga and aerobic routine.  I think things are going well.

I thought I’d share Tilly’s favorite pose.

Guess The Name Of This Pose

Look at muscle tone!  Majestic.  She began with the extended puppy pose and worked her way to downward facing dog.  We’re working on other poses but she seems to be struggling a bit.  I’d love to see her crane pose but that might take some work.  After a nice yoga workout we did some speed work to build up her explosive stride.

Tilly in full stride

Now that’s impressive!  She’s like a bulldozer.  But she has a dream.  Her dream is to slim down and release her inner Chihuahua.  She clings to this image…

Red carpet Tilly

A girl’s gotta dream, right?  I’m not going to tell her she can’t do it but I refuse to pay for liposuction and botox.  That would be… excessive.

The little clock on the wall tells me it’s time to run.  I’ve enjoyed our time together and hope you have too.  I’ll leave you with my customary reminder: Don’t forget to take care of your waitperson because they’re working hard for you today.  I’ll be  back tomorrow when we’ll explore The Consort’s search for a smart phone.  Let’s all enjoy the inspirational efforts of this young Aussie.

Another Royal Wedding on Tap and National Pink Day

Hello-Hello, and Happy National Pink Day!

This is perfect timing, coinciding nicely with the big news of the day for royal watchers: word that Monaco’s Prince Albert is engaged to Charlene Wittstock of South Africa.  Below, the official photograph released by the Palace accompanying the announcement.

The official announcement may be viewed here.  Ms. Wittstock is a former Olympic swimmer from South Africa; from the news release:

“Ms Charlene Lynette Wittstock is of South African nationality and was born on 25 January 1978 in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Before settling in Monaco, Charlene Lynette Wittstock was a youth worker.”

We saw many photos of the couple over the weekend in our posts on the Swedish royal wedding of Princess Victoria. Here are two more pictures from this weekend’s festivities.

We are sure no one will care about this silly bauble, but we’ll include the photo of Ms. Wittstock’s engagement ring anyway. (Heh-heh-heh.)

Today’s happy news lets us segue properly into our primary topic, a celebration of our favorite color here at the Prepatorium. We begin with an image of the famed royal residence.

In the photo above the Palace in Monaco appears rather more pink than it actually is, but a lovely sight nonetheless.  Other pink structures we stumbled across include this rental home not far from the white cliffs of Dover in the UK.


Many are familiar with the Royal Sheraton in Hawaii.

While the Monaco residence is considered an icon, others think of this when hearing the ‘Pink Palace’ moniker.

This room might be more conducive to sleep.


Locating furnishings in our favorite color is nowhere near as difficult as it was in TP’s day. Below, PB Teen’s Cushy Lounge Love Seat.

One would want a large space to house this Bruehl piece.

Surely locating a pink vehicle is far more challenging than doing a room in the color, no?

Who can ignore this adorable electric car from Lilly Pulitzer?

The pink Mini is destined to stand out.

As will the pink Corvette, sure to attract attention.

Who can forget Barbie’s pink Fiat for her 50th anniversary?

Sadly, many readers may remember this monstrosity and the AntiPrep flaunting it.

Our treasured readers won’t be surprised to read that we definitely like the Estate Wagon pedal car.

We are rather fond of the pink Pedal Plane.

The notion of pink aircraft is troubling.


Many of us have spent far more time on an Airbus A-320 than we want to remember, but never on this one.

Some things simply should not be pink. Car interiors would be near the top of that list; this is clearly a Crime Against Pink.

By far the strangest pink item we discovered is this:

Via His Nibs blog

The 200-foot bunny lives on the side of a hill in Italy; as described on His Nibs, the site where we discovered it:

“Viennese art group Gelatin designed the giant soft toy and say it was “knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool”.

From another angle.

Via FootlooseMoose.com

Back to the HisNibs post:

Group member Wolfgang Gantner said: “It’s supposed to make you feel small, like Gulliver. You walk around it and you can’t help but smile. And Gelatin members say the bunny is not just for walking around – they are expecting hikers to climb its 20 foot sides and relax on its belly.

The giant rabbit is expected to remain on the mountain side until 2025.”

A final look, with thanks to PhilNeeds on Posterous:

Clearly a prime candidate for inclusion in our You Can’t Make This Stuff Up category.



We also have to share just one more thing, with thanks to our dear friend Julie for sending it along last night, creating quite the tizzy.

The fun begins on July 25.

May you enjoy a wonderful day of pretty pink things wherever you may travel!

Lady Diana’s Dre$$ & Gucci Goes Young


We begin with a quick follow-up to our previous post about this famous black party frock:

Princess Diana’s gown was auctioned yesterday for a price far exceeding the estimate of £30,000 – £50,000, ultimately selling for £192,000, approximately $276,000.


Just a heads-up from the corner condo here at the Prepatorium:


Pronunciation: \ˈsnär-kē\
Function: adjective
Etymology: dialect snark to annoy, perhaps alteration of snark to irritate
1 : crotchety, snappish
2 : sarcastic, impertinent, or irreverent in tone or manner <snarky lyrics>
snark·i·ly \-kə-lē\ adverb

Fair warning.

Having issued the advisory above, we move on, with news of several new lines launching in the not-so-distant future:

Courtesy Image via StyleList.com

  • Gucci’s new Childrens line debuts June 24; it will include apparel, accessories, shoes and sunglasses. (Because there aren’t enough logoed sunglasses available for the Young Miss and Master at your Palace.) We cannot resist part of StyleList’s take on the upcoming collection.

“… since most of its target audience can’t read, the designs…  will be marked with a gold teddy bear logo (how very Kanye!) so that little Susie’s playmates will know when to seethe with jealousy.”

The Consort also offered his insight: “Why don’t they do dogs, then we could have Gucci Poochie.”


  • We have a backup plan for you just in case the Gucci childrenswear doesn’t pan out: the new Little Miss America collection.

    Courtesy Image via WWD

    Sized for both babies/toddlers and tweens/teens, all of the items will be priced at $25 or less. Again, we turn to StyleList’s report:

“So what does a mini Miss America dress like? There’s not as many sequins and flesh-toned pantyhose as you might expect — although it is very girlie. Initial sketches show ruffled tuxedo-style tops, bow-detailed skirts, lots of pink, and a onesie with an imitation pageant sash emblazoned across the front.

Hey, just because you’re still in diapers doesn’t mean you can’t get a head start on baton twirling or prepping those responses on world peace, kids.”


This is the time of year when designers show their Cruise/Resort collections, and there have been some stunning pieces, beginning with Oscar de la Renta.  As seen in the following images, there is a nautical influence evident in some pieces from this collection.

The vibrant colors and elegant lines are delightful.

Natch, we are gaga for several of the party frocks.

In any length.

Perhaps our favorite:

George Chinsee/WWD

One quick advisory, the OdlR spring collection is currently on sale.


The other resort collection we are sharing today is from Marc Jacobs.

The two styles shown above almost qualify as a Pretty in Pink… and Green, but it is a tad challenging to see the colors with images this size.

The WWD (Women’s Wear Daily, subscription req’d.) review described some of the looks as “…playful preppy.” We particularly like the dress on the left.


Next on today’s hit parade, a few product updates, beginning with a fast glance at some of the springtime treasures recently added to the fab merchandise mix at Just Madras. The Girls dresses look darling…

As do the bow ties for your MOTH (Man of the House), or the always-popular Madras Skirts.

We do love the ladies at Just Madras, and too many of their goodies!


We are tickled to share additions to our Preppy Ladybug line here at The Princess, here are more delightful designs by Shannon.

We have added patterns to our Flat Card selection ($15 for a set of 12), like the navy/red/lobster motif, as well as a new pink & green gator.

There are new designs ideal for the younger set. (It’s never to early to start them on the handwritten note concept, IOHO.)

There are also additions to the Ladybug’s Stickers and Labels line ( $4.50), including blue and pink perfect for announcing blessed arrivals, as well as that wonderful lobster.

One can even do a coordinated set for their little princess.

We adore the Ladybug and her fabulous eye.


We leave you with an image that we understand has provoked some chatter about the watercooler, so to speak.

Getty Images via TMZ.com

When initially seeing this photo we knew two of the individuals pictured above. After all, they carry the distinction of being charter members in the Original AntiPrep Class of 2008. (Paris and Nicky Hilton.) It has been explained to us by TSU (The Spousal Unit, aka The Consort) that the other two creatures are named Snooki (sp?) and Jwoww(sp?). Our question to those in the know: are the latter two individuals solid candidates for the APHOS? (Anti Prep Hall of Shame.)

Do tell. We have an expiring mind dying to know.

Until next time, may your afternoon be filled with smiles!

“Herds of Thundering Preppy Clothiers”

Hello-Hello, and welcome to another wacky week of preppy insanity here at the Princess!

We begin with more in-depth looks at the new LL Bean Signature and Lands’ End Canvas lines, most notably on AOL’s Walletpop blog and in Luminosity Marketing, an online journal.  The first item is titled “LL Bean’s New Signature Line: The preppy look gets a risky makeover“. 

“After all, Bean isn’t just a brand; it’s an institution, a torchbearer, a monument to a bygone lifestyle. Along with Brooks Brothers, Sperry and a few other labels, it represents one of the last survivors of the great age of prep, when vast herds of preppy clothiers thundered across the American retail plain, dispensing tweed and bespoke throughout the land.”

We absolutely adore the “thundering across America” imagery, hordes of preps armed with canvas totes and headbands, wielding strands of pearls like slingshots.

“And while the new clothes are recognizably Bean, they sport a more tight-fitting, body-conscious style that should draw in Gap, Abercrombie, J Crew and Banana Republic fans.”
We don’t recall seeing a madras scarf before and think this item could merit a second look. One more line from the story, this raises an interesting topic:
“In fact, many of its items are often less expensive than comparable garments at Gap, which has long been perceived as the well-made, reasonably-priced choice for the casually preppy look.”
We are curious to know your thoughts on the issue, do you find Gap prices higher than Bean?

Now to the post from Luminosity Marketing, “Geek Out: Lands’ End and L.L. Bean’s Preppy Resurgence“. Geek out. Hhhhmmm. From that story:

“With preppy, All-American fashions enjoying a nice comeback, we’ve seen many brands that have been able to successfully leverage the trend.”

As always, the “preppy comes back” theme prompts an inner smile here at the Prepatorium; from comments in the past on the topic, many readers share this reaction. Back to the story by Lamont Swittenberg:

“We’ve commented here on the resurgence of Sperry Topsiders, but brands like J-Crew, Barbour, Lacoste, Brooks Brothers, Clark’s and a host of new labels have also been successful at taking advantage of this shift in consumer preference. Before recently however, two of the most iconic preppy brands, Lands’ End and L.L. Bean, had remained curiously silent.”

We apologize for this temporary break from our point, but we have to insert this tongue-in-cheek item from Lacoste, the Comic Croc Shopping Bag:

Back to the primary point of today’s post, new styles from Bean and Lands’ End; below, a Webbed Belt from the Canvas line and the classic Tretorn sneaker.

Our hats are off to Mr. Swittenberg; he purchased a substantial amount of merchandise from both the Signature and Canvas lines to better judge the end products from both companies. Ultimately the story makes this point:

“It’s great when brands have the product development and marketing smarts to update their image while maintaining their essence. It’s a delicate balance that’s not easy to pull-off. The tendency is either to jump too far onto the latest bandwagon or to dogmatically stick to the tried and true past (while slowly becoming a dinosaur). Kudos to both Lands End and L.L. Bean for showing us all the way forward.”

Both pieces make for a good read.


A few more tidbits:

Lord & Taylor is promoting ‘preppy sneakers’:

Lord & Taylor

While The Fashion List talks about the upcoming limited edition collection from Sebago.

Courtesy Photos via The Fashion List

The firm is celebrating 40 years of their Dockside shoe, Sebago’s counter to the Sperry Topsider.


We wrap up with two quick items, including today’s Pretty in Pink:

Rosie Campbell is a talented designer we were fortunate enough to discover when she entered our most recent giveaway.  We fell in love with her belt buckles, handmade in the USA.

We close with yet another popular culture phenomenon we were completely clueless about: the micro pig.  (With apologies to any Facebook fans who may have seen this mentioned on that venue.)

We had to include it because of one of the creature’s bigger fans is one of our original AntiPreps.

Hello! Magazine

And because the little critters were included as part of this year’s Golden Globes swag bags. (Yes, we put this in the “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” category.) The LA Times has more:

“The pet pigs usually sell for about $5,000, the suite people tell me, but the visiting celebrities would be able to get one for free. All they’d have to do is complete a one-hour course on how to treat the li’l porkers and present a certificate of completion.”

There you have it.

On that note, g’bye until next time!

The Princess Picks Another Anti-Prep

Hello-Hello on a day that is more than a little nippy for this time of year. How nippy? Well, here in the Corner Condo someone was overheard asking The Consort if he knew where the space heater was. It is August treasured readers, not October or November. Sigh.

We thought it best to do this up front, providing fair warning about the content of today’s post:


Pronunciation: \ˈsnär-kē\
Function: adjective
Etymology: dialect snark to annoy, perhaps alteration of snark to irritate
1 : crotchety, snappish
2 : sarcastic, impertinent, or irreverent in tone or manner <snarky lyrics>
snark·i·ly \-kə-lē\ adverb

It’s not quite DEFCON 3, but it only seems fair to indicate a departure from our more standard post.

Frequent readers know TP doesn’t follow many of the popular shows airing on broadcast and cable television, notwithstanding Mad Men and TSU’s (The Spousal Unit) fondness for something about truckers on icy roads, not to mention the longest auction in history for collectible cars.

This lack of ‘hipness’ extends to a program called Jon and Kate Plus Eight, a reference to two parents and their brood of eight offspring. The ‘eight’ are comprised of twins and sextuplets, this mix evidently adding to the broadcast’s appeal.

At any rate, sometime this summer it seems the father, Jon Gosselin, decided there are greener pastures away from the ‘Eight,’ and he is pursuing a solo career of some sort, although we have yet to ascertain precisely what his talents are, other than being a complete oaf, engaged in buffoonery that is likely to inflict hurt and embarrassment on his children now, and in the future.

Back to the subject of all this blather, Mr. Gosselin and his efforts to garner attention and financial remuneration; the conduct leaves us feeling we have no alternative other than to declare he is the latest addition to our Anti-Prep Hall of Shame.

Above, we see him reclining amazingly close to a poster of… oh, wait! Could it be? Why, that is a poster of Mr. Gosselin promoting a pool party he was hosting this weekend. Imagine that.

According to a story in US Weekly, Mr. Gosselin no longer wants to tape the reality show.

“”I wish I had a 9 to 5 job instead of the nightmare I’m living. This is 24/7,” he told Usmagazine.com outside his $1.1 million Pennsylvania home Monday. “I don’t even want to do taping for the show anymore.”

Below, we see another photograph of Mr. Gosselin at this weekend’s event:

Perhaps a reader can help us understand exactly how one lists this skill on their resume? “Professional pool party host”?


For those not familiar with the Anti Prep, it is a rather exclusive group, albeit an ignoble collection of individuals and in rare cases, inanimate objects.  Previous inductees include Paris Hilton, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, Kim Kardashian, and David Yurman’s Children’s Jewelry. Everyone should know we welcome suggestions for people and things meriting membership in this august group.

We have devoted far more time than necessary to bloviating about someone unworthy of the time and energy. Tomorrow we promise a return to discussion of things that at least register on the Prep-o-meter.  Like more tennis apparel and accessories, particularly those with a preppish pedigree.
