We’re just gearing up for Summer but some companies have started to show us sneak peeks of what’ll be in stores for Fall 2011. This week, I attended the Coldwater Creek Fall 2011 Collection Preview. Firstly, I thought I would be way too excited for Spring to even be in the mood for Fall clothes. Boy, was I wrong!
Coldwater Creek’s collection for Fall 2011 is themed around colors like coral and blue, that are bright enough to perk up your entire Fall wardrobe. One of my favorite items was an orange jacket. The color is unexpected for Fall but it does the trick of lightening up your mood. This jacket is also available in a rich blue. This blue is a summer color but the surprise of seeing it for Fall is like trying to lengthen Summer into September. Who isn’t ready for that?
Another favorite item of mine from the collection was a simple knit sweater. The difference, though, is that there is a zipper around the neckline that ends at the front in the V-neck. I loved it! There were also two zippered pockets in the front to stash a few items.
Prints are definitely going to be a huge hit this Fall. From watery blues and greens, mixed with sultry blacks and navys, a printed blouse is a great way to add interest to a suit.
Coldwater Creek also offered an interesting take on texture. Instead of using fabric like tweed. they used the texture as the inspiration for a print. From a distance, the print looks like the real texture. Its not only great for the visual illusion, its also an easy way to wear the look in a lighter, more breathable fabric.
