Talbots Spring 2012 Collection

Like most of the shows I attended during fashion week, bright colors, florals and patterns are the main features of the very feminine Talbots Spring 2012. Mixing 60’s silhouettes with modern appeal, Talbots delivers a youthful collection with many looks featuring whimsical personality

In February, expect to see more organic colors – tan, green, navy, a touch of burgundy, with paisley and ikat prints making an appearance

March brings pronounced patterns like bold florals and stripes, dots, deep reds, pale pinks, full and pencil skirts and slim pants

While the latter part of the spring season features super bold colors – lots of brights are seen and mixed with one another

We also see color in accessories, not just typical color palettes but color-blocking, neutrals mixed with brights

So if you’re worried about what to wear this spring – don’t. Talbots’ Spring collection is full of colorful easy to wear that will compliment any wardrobe.

Talbots Holiday 2011 Collection: Wish & Tell

Talbots will color your holiday wardrobe with an assortment of jeweled-toned colors. There’s nothing more eye-catching than a bold color against the stark white winter snow or the dull, dreary and cloudy winter weather. (side note: I’ve always wanted a glowing red cape like Little Red Riding Hood)
That’s the feeling I got when walking through Talbots Holiday collection – sapphire, emerald, ruby red, teal, royal purple and raspberry are presented in dresses, coats, skirts etc

Of course these rich tones were not the just featured in the clothing but shoes and accessories as well. I particularly love the bracelets

Of course there were more offerings besides the jewel tones, a favorite trend – the black and white graphic, was also prevalent. Solid black and white and herringbone was shown in

What’s holiday celebrations without a bit of sparkle and Talbots give you lots of it with lamé, sequins and even adds some shine to animal prints

Talbots Fall 2011 Collection Preview

Talbots has been added to my list of must visit retailers – this is not a result of me getting older, not at all. This is because Talbots is getting chicer. For Fall 2011, Talbots collection features lots of animal print, a trend that has been present in several seasons is available in both clothing and accessories and mixed with neutral colors

Talbots fall is also inspired by old Hollywood glamour, menswear silhouettes, styles and colors.

Touches of vibrant color, classic sophistication and soft femininity also run rampant through the collection. Full pleated skirts, figure flattering silhouettes and chic accessories punctuate the latter part of fall

Talbots Fall 2010 Preview

Talbots has a new look. A younger look to be exact 

Talbots is expanding its appeal with women 35 – 50 by incorporating a fashion forward twist to its classic style. The new design team is using more colors, patterns and cuts to increase its appeal to its ever growing clientele.

 Other changes for the upcoming season include the introduction of cosmetics – a lipstick called Charmed in August;

a re-launch of their denim line in September in various fits, washes and cuts as well as the expansion of the types of cuts of its jackets.

A few favorite pieces of our Editor is this Golf Green Twill Coat, a perfect pop of color over jeans, a sheath or wrap dress;

 this beautiful Beacon Mae Snakeskin-embossed Nubuck Satchel

and this Plaid Kimono Shrug, which looks even more chic when paired with long leather gloves

See the video below for the breakdown of looks for the season and a more detailed look at the accessories

Some of the pieces to look forward to are:

This collar, which comes in real and faux rabbit fur. It is the perfect accent piece for the every changing weather. It will definitely make a statement while you are walking the busy streets of NYC.


This leopard sheath dress ( a must have print for the fall) is fabulous and chic! It can make a woman over 30 look sexy and gorgeous without looking too young. The cut seems to highlight existing as well as create an illusion of curves that can make any woman look incredible.

Talbots has expanded its cuts, fits and washes of its denim line to appeal to woman’s ever changing body needs. The denim comes in women and petite sizes ranging from 0 – 22.
