On a recent week day, we took in two lifestyle collection that originate from abroad...one a smaller brand bustin' out...another a retail giant.
At a midtown space-we shared a cocktail with the super nice-immensely upbeat people employed by the Swedish lifestyle/casual wear brand db.
...no tailoring necessary as the blends are a perfect mix -with excellent shape retention--- (though we think some of the back pocket logos need to be re-thought for the American markets)....
Our favs and soon to be big sellers- are these colorful khaki-cotton like pants for gals...we predict a major sell---they feel great, comfy and have a slim fit that's flattering.
And the jackets and tops for guys and gals are easy wear---and of nice-quality construction- with a bit of vintage flavor that we like...including this totally 70's leisure suit style hoody pictured below. FUN.

The cocktail hour also came courtesy of Denim Therapy---where for $7/inch---this smart service will repair -practically undetectable weaving-your fav jeans.
Uniiqlo is that mega brand out of Japan that we only knew from their subway posters---for cool tees and a line of thermal L/S ...
What we really liked at the preview---are these amazing crew neck, washable cotton sweaters in a range of great spring colors. NICE. Too bad only for guys!
We also thought the tailored pieces---well done---and the prices are super cheap too.
