Mooka Kinney's A/W 08 was packed full of pretty young things who'd just gotten off work (and not in the tents). From the collection expect the usual vintage-inspired dresses for gals who haven't the time to sift through thrift stores. The presentation, which took place at a packed Hanger Bar in the East Village, was attended by the pre-Opening Ceremony party crowd and modeled by girls from Nylon, television show Arrested Development, and the musical Spring Awakening. It's a perfect example of "off site" fashion sense, where the desire to dress people of status, throw memorable parties, and be associated with like minded brands, involves an entirely different cast of characters, no matter how similar the formula.

In this video Kim Johnson, sales executive for J Lindeberg, tells us about the A/W 08 collection. For American men, the key to being stylish is blending new dandyism with the tradition of casual dress. Johnson tells us about the inspiration for the collection as derived from surf culture and the notion that the J. Lindeberg man is the sort to mix tailored garments with backseat-of-the-station wagon duds. Things are looking up for the boys, as labels like J. Lindeberg are mending the discord between men who dress well and men who wear 'dad jeans' and oversized t-shirts. We just can't wait for the women's line to be reintroduced as it will surely include some Sunday afternoon outfits with boyfriend-like tailoring.
