Coterie NYC F/W 2013 recap 1 Jeff and me.JPG

{Jeff Rudes, Mr. JBrand and yours truly}

Yeah, time again for the Coterie NY trade show. It feels like visiting all your buds you work with the whole year, hellos and how have you been’s and soooo good to see you and come check out what’s new, mwah mwah ….well, I have to admit I was overwhelmed. With the jeans as well as with the hugs and smiles and the love I felt – thank you brands, for letting me be part of your denim-lives πŸ™‚

Summing up, I feel that tie-dyed is definitely a MUST for this coming season as well as into next fall. Leather in all forms and shapes, and very much vegan leather. Coated is THE rad fashion trend right now and absolutely way into next fall. Destroyed and destructed balances with clean and classic. Most of the brands are offering both options. I would say the skinnies continue as strong as ever, but so do the boyfriends, if on a lesser scale. Almost no flares and bootcuts, but a lot of straight legs that you are supposed to wear rolled up showing your ankles (meaning showing off your brand new high heels LOL)! Maybe it’s time to get some discreet ink on that ankle.

As usual, I have snapped some outstanding items from all the brands I have visited, so enjoy your walk through Coterie with me:-)
