City Pulse

By Samantha Smikle

fallpreview.jpg BeautyNews paid the Pitch Control showroom a visit for a fall preview and spotted some lines that we had to share. Bellum Classics, Erika Peà±a, Zia Ziprin and Lilly and Jae presents fresh designs in accessories and threads.

Bellum Classics refreshes vintage time pieces. Rolex watches from the 1930s through 1980s are modernized with laser etching to produce one-of-a-kind watches. Also pulling from the past is the Puerto Rico native, Erika Peà±a with her rosary-inspired necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

Continuing with the vintage theme is Zia Ziprin. The co-owner of the vintage shoe archival shop, Girls Love Shoes, will be launching her own shoe line this fall. But for now, the store continues to rent and sell shoes from the 1800s to the 1990s for shoots or personal use.

But you can’t walk around in just jewelry and shoes! Here’s Lilly & Jae to fill the void. The Vancouver-based line will be coming to NYC soon and they will be bringing this season’s florals in deep fall color ways such as navy blues, rich reds and grays. My favorites are the striped bralet-type vests and the hoodie with the floral inside collar.
