Last week we stopped by designer Kal Rieman’s pop up shop that’s open in NYC this month, and we were immediately drawn to her eye catching polka dot pieces (the perfect complement to her pops of bright tomato red). We’re all about fun pants this spring, so of course we’re dying for a pair of these:

The silk pleat pants are both playful and elegant, with a look that is luxe yet relaxed at the same time. Not feeling bold enough for polka dots? They also come in more subdued yet still chic shades of red and cream.

Taking a unique direction for Fall/Winter 2012, Houghton’s first collection consists of a light palette of ivories, blushes and whites - a refreshing change from the typical racks of black, grey, and navy. Designed by established NYC stylist and former Badgley Mischka Couture design assistant Katharine Polk, the new luxury line will include long tailored coats, menswear-inspired suits, and hand-beaded statement gowns with a bit of edge. We can’t wait to find these amazing silk cashmere and chiffon pieces in stores next fall.
