yesterday morning, i arrived to aamanns-copenhagen (the restaurant’s first location in the states!) bright and early to experience a bit of denmark — skagen hosted an intimate preview for its upcoming collections. i’ve been familiar with the heritage brand for years as a go-to for watches and was pleasantly surprised to find an extensive line of styles as well as a burgeoning jewelry collection, the latter of which is in its second season. everything was slim, light, and classic in shape — all of which create a wearable product for both men and women. best of all? the affordability factor.
disclosure: i was graciously gifted with a skagen watch at the close of this event
i recently had the opportunity to preview the upcoming collections of treesje and joelle hawkens by treesje, the former brand’s less pricey (but equally as awesome) line. the shapes were a modern mix of textures and colors with leather nearly as soft as lukewarm butter, which i swear is a compliment. expect to see them in stores soon.
i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again: french connection has got it goin’ on right now. further proof was shown in a recent visit to the retailer’s showroom, which had the fall collection on display. the clothes speak for themselves, but what i will continue is that you can expect a ton of texture and an array of of-the-moment trends in-store beginning in august. this includes bomber jackets, brocade, burnt orange, and animal print.
