Read Into Fashion With Playful Letter Inspirations

July/August 2012

By Eden Herbstman

Designers are going back to their ABC’s, dressing up casual closet essentials. High fashion labels, such as Jil Sander and Marni, are channeling 1950’s varsity letterman styles, labeling simple sweatshirts with their initials. Kenzo and Zoe Karseen have found inspiration across the pond with Parisian expressions and feminine design. Stella McCartney gives a nighttime silk blouse the royal treatment. And if you’re looking for something with a little more punch, Markus Lupfer’s “Ka Pow” sweater can be perfectly paired for any night out. Check out our favorite pre-fall picks below.
