Walking around Magic’s Project show past booth after booth after booth of similar-looking stuff, this bag more or less leaped up and down and demanded, “Look at me, I’m adorable—take a picture of meeeeeeee!” And voila, now you, dear reader, get to share in the fun of this skull & crossbone tote, too. Some more serious yet equally handsome Autumn 2011 bags on the flip. All images HighSnobette.

Swedish Hasbeens Autumn 2011

SwedishHasbeens (2)

We were wondering if Swedish Hasbeens would stay forever a clog company and much to our delight we discovered in a visit to its booth a Magic’s Platform show that it’s added new profiles for Autumn 2011. The retro feel is still there and much like a well-edited vintage store, the tassled loafers (above), lace-up military boots with sheepskin lining and pull on boots with gum soles (!) all very much have a what’s next feel to them. And don’t worry, clogs remain a mainstay, featuring new colors and treatments. More on the next page. All images via Highsnobette.

JeffCampbel 540x405 Jeffrey Campbell Rainbow Platforms

Arrived in Vegas for Magic yesterday and of course popped by Jeffrey Campbell in the Pool section of the show, where as always its booth was buzzing. JC always delivers the latest trends but at the same time it always remembers to give love to its cult fans obsessed with its platform offerings. This delightful pair of rainbow platform sandals has been this Spring’s biggest hit, and they will be hitting retail shortly.

On another note, the brand is launching handbags! I peeped the images yesterday and natch, they are trend perfect and the JC girls will love them. Look for us to post those soon.

Lialia Spring/Summer 2011

Lialia1 Lialia Spring/Summer 2011

Our last but most definitely not least designer spotted at the Capsule show is Lialia, a line designed by two sisters, Julia and Natalia Alarcon, who are new on the scene but whose work already has been recognized by WWD and Gen Art. We spoke last week about how access to computer-generated print programs is bringing excitement into fashion, but what’s neat about Lialia is the attention not just to the print, but the marrying of its earthy designs with light-as-a-feather, futuristic-feeling fabrics for a look that is thoroughly modern. The end result is a next level shift that is feminine and super smart. A couple more looks after the flip.

Boxing Kitten Spring/Summer 2011

BoxingKitten Boxing Kitten Spring/Summer 2011

Wrapping up our coverage of Capsule trade show in New York last week, we bring you some looks from Boxing Kitten’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection. In a shift away from the super bright colors, which have been a theme, designer Maya Lake’s offerings included some black and white blouses, her very first solid-colored garments. And even with the dress shown here, the African-inspired pattern play remains, but again, there’s a shift away from vibrancy, which was very much in step with what we were seeing on the floor of the show in general–colors more subdued with newness generated by silhouettes, fabric innovation, and detailing (which is why I think the Prada rumor is true–bright color just aint “it” for Spring).

DD1 Introducing: Dusen Dusen

The wider accessability of fabric design programs is going to add some some spark to fashion in coming seasons. Case in point, while visiting New York’s Capsule trade show last week, new, Brooklyn-based designer Ellen Van-Dusen for Dusen Dusen caught our eye with her digitally- and hand-drawn-designs, which she applied to cotton and silk fabrics for some fun results. Her popular bags are featured above, but click to the other side for her Spring 2011 cotton shorts, plus some silk crop tops and tunics featuring a shark print.

Starstyling Spring 2011

 Starstyling Spring 2011

Berlin-based Star Styling, whose Spring collection we viewed while visiting Capsule earlier this week, is know for its non-serious edge, but behind the joi-de-vivre attitude is a seriously strong color and materials story, which shows itself in the tops above. New technology materials are used to detail a down-to-earth, gauzy cotton for a look that is very new millennium moonage daydream. More after the flip, including some denim dresses and bags. Fun yes, but clever, too.

IMG 4060 405x540 D&A: Jas MB Spring/Summer 2011

On the next page a few of our faves.
