Conceptualized as a super-fashionable Sámi playground, the Fall-Winter 2010-2011 collection from Claire Campbell is a delight to page through. I paused at this shot, which featured a knit lamp that I knew I'd seen before. Its soft, woolen design looks like the perfect complement to a relaxing bedroom. Want to see where to find it?

We're currently in the market for a fringe vest like the those we've seen on fashionistas since the weather has gotten colder. In the end, it's a choice between something a little more accessible and feminine, like the WPQ vest from Pixie Market, or more edgy and substantial (not to mention, expensive), like Pencey's version at OAK. Whichever you prefer, this is a warm way to represent the luxe trend from Fall 08--we think this is the kind of trend you'll kind of live in.
The truth is, the Topshop collection just doesn't compare. Jonathan Saunders, known for his color blocking and silhouette skimming frocks, is close to driving American women off their Marc Jacobs diet. The London designer showed this Somerby dress as part of his Spring collection and it should be a top seller, now that it's hit the stores. The fact is, his clothing is easy to understand and balances the desire to look sexy (body skimming) without being too serious (color blocking). We think this dress is the perfect example. A silk bandage dress can be an intimidating prospect, but, create body-conscious panels of cool pastel color, give it a high mesh neckline, and throw in some flattering front-facing pockets, and you've conquered the issue completely. See our spread below for more of the Spring collection.

Oscar de la Renta was one of many designers to show plum in their Fall 2008 collection. Albeit, Oscar's plum was just a little bit richer, just a little bit more, well, plum than the others. Or maybe that's just our crush on the designer who insists, season after season, on celebrating the ever-popular concept of the 'powerful woman'. Oscar's plum appeared in the form of a trim cashmere knit sweater, high waisted wide leg trousers, and two fabulous floral print frocks. Below, two galleries, our editorial of the Oscar de la Renta Fall 08 plums, and, you know, everyone else's.
