I spent yesterday at the NY Accessory Show. It is so much smaller than the gift show and far less overwhelming. I shopped it looking for some new lines to add, specifically looking for fresh, new items.
Not easy to do.
It seems that in this economy no one wants to take a risk introducing anything new or different. The manufacturers tend to go with what has worked and done well in the past.
Because of this a few companies really stood out.
Beautiful bags! Colorful and textural. Great price point.
Another company that has been around, but has really risen to the occasion is,
Socks, socks, and socks
Socks are going to be very important this Fall/Winter, especially knee socks and (believe it or not) over the knee socks. These rugby knee highs are the ultimate trendy/preppy item!
