In today's exclusive Coutorture editorial we've pulled garments from the Spring 08 collections of Alice Ritter and Trovata. The two brands, though seemingly dissimilar, are on common ground in terms of their contemporary style and appeal to twenty-something's with a penchant for smart casual dress. From Ritter, we've covered her Spring 08 collection as well as her Fall 08 presentation during New York Fashion Week (it was one wild party). In our video, we spoke with Ritter, who attributes the Fall 08 season to have been influenced by legendary rougue Serge Gainsbourg. From Trovata, we popped into the showroom to shoot Fall 08, an exclusive Coutorture editorial that made us want to move upstate and start a family (only kidding!). It, as always, had an East Coast prepster aesthetic that pulled at our Cape Cod-loving heartstrings. The two brands appear again in today's editorial, La Belle Dame sans Merci, so, consider yourself an expert.
Our network partner, We Are The Market, always scouts out the best emerging menswear labels. We are not the sort to be put off by menswear, hell, we've more Steven Alan in our closet than we do Agent Provocateur. In their post on menswear line Mjolk, carried in New York by BBlessing, the Fall 08 collection is revealed and damn if it isn't good enough for the girls. To that end, we've put together a few outfits that rip on the Fall 08 collection. Let's call it styling, shall we? For more on Mjolk, including quotes from the designer and a review of the Fall collection, check out We Are The Market's editorial.
