Buying Trip

I recently returned from a buying trip, showcasing goods for Spring 09. The buyers convention is called "Market". It is appropriately titled, because the supermarket sweep for me is about instant gratification(a common thing said by the oh-so fabulous Kimora Lee Simons). And, in an instant, I can tell if the collection would be a fit for Parallel or not. You hop from one showroom to the next, searching and searching for the perfect pieces for your clients. Here are some pics from my trip last week.

This Nili Lotan collection was at the Chateau Marmont in a 3 br bungalow #1.
It was a jaunt from the Fashion District, but it was nice to check one of those
fancy schmancy huts out:).

So.............not sure what these pants are about????

::CASSETTE:: New for Fall

Boiled Wool Sweater Top
(What is boiled wool you ask? It is created using a mechanical knitting process which involves a set pattern that is then shrunk. Thus, creating a super soft wool piece!)

Cotton/wool chunky cable knit dress with hidden pockets

Hidden pocket detail

Scarf with buttons and pockets. Works likes a scarf but looks like a vest!
