Charlotte Russe Holiday 09 Trends


Charlotte Russe Holiday 2009

Charlotte Russe Holiday 2009

The Charlotte Russe Holiday Collection has recently begun to hit stores. Under the creative direction of  Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman, the company has certainly stepped up it’s game, and is producing spot-on trend looks that range from luxe to casual. Much like the Fall collection I showed you a while back, the Holiday collection has been broken up into 10 different trend looks.

Charlotte Russe Holiday 2009: Rocker

The Rocker look has been inspired by glam rock and a biker babe attitude. Not surprisingly the slim-silhouetted pieces in the trend may feature leather, chains and studs, rips, tears and deconstruction, and are accessorized with statement jewelry and footwear. This look started arriving in stores in October, and items like the leather jacket pictured are priced beyond reasonably at just $36.99.

The Nordic trend has a Scandanavian and Nordic cultural influence, featuring warm sweater knits, multi layered separates, and cozy boots. Also in stores now, knits are priced around $19.99  accessories are in the $10 range and footwear like the furry boots go up to around $39.99.

Also in currently in stores, the Alpine Kitsch trend is a lady-like, homespun collection with kitschy and eclectic attitude, inspired by classic vintage like iconic owl pendants. Accessories feature colorful gemstones with a vintage feel, and outerwear is created out of more textural fabrics.

Charlotte Russe Holiday 2009: About A Girl

About A Girl is a continuation of their fall grunge trend, a look anchored by denim, leather, plaids and checks, with boyish styling.  This look should start hitting stores by the next week and vests and tops fall in the in the $20-25 range.

Charlotte Russe Holiday 2009: The Ritz

The Ritz is a more glammed up, indulgent and opulent trend, influenced by flappers and the roaring 20’s. Very Blair Waldorf, if you ask me.  The look includes era-reminiscent cocktail jewelry, and very deco style ornamentation. When I talk about what you can get for your money at Charlotte Russe, the statement necklace in this collection is a great example, with a ton of impressive glitz, for only $16.99! This collection starts hitting stores mid-November.

Charlotte Russe Holiday 2009: Scout

Scout is a cute boy-meets-girl 90’s influenced look, that gives off a look of relaxed city chic. There are lots of greys and florals and colorful flirty jewelry. Scout will begin to appear in stores toward the end of November.

Charlotte Russe Holiday 2009: Voyager

Charlotte Russe Holiday 2009: Voyager

Voyager is a darker, more dramatic and futuristic style featuring metallics and extreme accessories. The fits of the collection are more body concious and feature more undulating and abstract patterns or finishes. This trend will also begin to hit stores near the end of November. As I am writing this, I just saw the necklace featured in this image in a commercial for the next episode of the CW’s Vampire Diaries! Eagle eyes!

Charlotte Russe Holiday 2009: Secret Garden

Cottage Charm and Secret Garden are the two loungewear collections, already available in stores. Cottage Charm has a baroque romantic influence meant like a pretty girl pajama party. There are lace and sheer elements, as well as feminine wallpaper-like patterns, pom poms and folksy trims.  Secret Garden is more of a cozy wintry collection with a sweeter, innocent feel. Flannels, ruffles, heathered knits and warm, comfy layering  just makes you wanna slumber party.

Coming soon I’ll have an up-close look at some of the strongest footwear and accessory pieces which are personally, my favorite things about Charlotte Russe!
