Lily + Jae Spring 2009 Preview



This week, we were given the opportunity to preview a few different clothing and jewelry lines at Pitch Control PR’s showroom. They served these adorable and delicious mini-mini-mini cupcakes that were so small they were like buttons you’d put on your favorite backpack or denim jacket, but alas their size did not quelch their deliciousness. The first line I am showing you is that of Lily + Jae, a smart but simplistic, detail oriented line out of Canada by Jude Feller. The line consists of contemporary separates made with top quality materials designed for the prototypical girl next door: energetic, innocent and playful.  We see functional takes on hoodies, tanks, flirty dresses, jackets, raincoats, and high waisted trousers that are easy to add to your current wardrobe, and comfortable enough to wear regularly no matter whether your style tends to sway feminine or tomboyish, as the clothes are constructed from light cotton wovens, soft light denims, and jersey fabrics.

The spring season of this line’s inspiration is the romantic rebel, which Jude defines as someone who “loves with great passion, and ignores the rules. Is laid back and unbuttoned and good with her hands. Relishes soft textures and gentle shapes. Is feminine enough to wear oversized clothing and make it look fetching. Picks flowers from vacant lots. Dislikes feeling stifled in love or life.”

I personally loved the light denim part of the collection which consisted of a few dresses, jackets, high waisted trousers, shorts and a jumper and could easily see myself wearing any of the pieces as a perfect way to welcome the warming springtime air.

Lily + Jae clothing is available in about 60 stores across the United States and Canada, and via their website, with prices ranging from about $50 to $300. There are some great pieces on sale right now in their online store (note to Santa, the bib shorts and caravan coat on my christmas list!) After the jump, check out some more pictures of select pieces of the spring collection.
