Fashion Week

Sweater Envy at Elizabeth and James

Shoppers are frequently flabbergasted over how far ahead the fashion world plans: “Shorts for sale in February??” But when it comes to Fashion Week, looking at fall collections in the dead of winter feels pretty good. It’s all sweaters, coats and boots—just what the doctor ordered. Last night, Elizabeth and James brought the cozy and then some with its fall/winter 2013 presentation on the rooftop of the Hôtel Americano. Unveiled in tandem with the brand’s handbag launch, the collection featured plush pullovers made of feather yarn, faux shearling coats and the world’s cutest oversized polka-dot sweater. At this rate, winter can stay all year.
