New York & Company has challenged traditional holiday spirit and given classic holiday chic the urbane twist it’s been craving for decades. Here is an inside look at the store’s latest capsule collection from Vivre.com’s style icon Eva Lorenzotti.
Known as the leading curator of global style (trust us, her taste is internationally boundless), Lorenzotti is known as one of the most chic women in the industry. Her New York & Company capsule collection is undeniably inspired by different parts of the globe while staying true to the high-end street fashions found on Manhattan’s sidewalks.
To our heart’s dismay, this festive and fun collection is only available for a limited time — so get to shopping, fashionistas. The collection is available at most NY & Company locations and on the store’s e-commerce site. Here are the essentials that encapsulate the collection and winter 2012 trends:
Bold statement jackets
They are a huge trend this holiday season — these two from Lorenzotti’s collection are essential styles. This bold puffer jacket is great for a night on the town with your beau and friends or simply a casual winter morning of running errands — being stylish is a full-time job, after all.
Sequins and shine
It isn’t the holidays without sequins — but don’t deny it, this trend needed some friendly, fashionable revamping. Lorenzotti’s holiday tops are sleek and irresistibly city-inspired cosmopolitan when paired with the right jewelry (coming up next). If you feel like rocking all that edge we saw this year in trends, Lorenzotti’s of-the-moment animal prints will work perfectly with your attitude and style.
Our favorite part of this collection is admittedly the accessories — just take a peek. With all the family occasions and playing it safe with styles to keep your mother, grandmother and father pleased, we are thrilled to see a little festive edge. The bags work well from daytime to playtime and the accessories, with all their tassel-inspired and geometric glory, will help light up any outfit this holiday season.
