Neiman Marcus Fall Trend Presentation

Yesterday morning, The Blonde & The Brunette were lucky enough to attend Neiman Marcus’ Fall Trend Presentation at the Penninsula in Beverly Hills.  Along with some of LA’s hottest fashion media and bloggers, we got a sneak peek at some of their favorite looks for this fall.  After the presentation, we also got to hear about the season’s trends in beauty from La Metier.  Their official trend event kickoff is August 17th and if you can get to a Neiman’s near you, lots of goodies are in-store, including gift cards and the cuff below for anyone who spends over $300.

And, as you know, we love a list and so does Neiman Marcus.  So key trends and fun quotes follow for your amusement.

Bordeaux – From rosé to claret, drink in all the beautiful shades and don’t be afraid to mix it with purple.

Lady Chic – The look is deliberate and polished, yet very present day. And lace is still as edgy.

Colorblocking – A graphic display of hues makes news. We agree! Loving this and they brought out one of our favorites. Celine.

Fur – Subtle trims and statement toppers, the look says luxury. Vests are going a bit longer or check out a ‘chubby’.

Leather – Cool as just a touch — utterly hip head-to-toe.

Shimmer – Take a shine to sequins, lurex, and lamé.

The Fall Face – Wine is the trend on everyone’s lips.

Pumps – Rise above in the ultimate lady chic shoe.

Handheld Bags – It’s all in the way you carry it.

Bold Gold – A fashion investment you can bank on.”
