I thought I'd end the week with the first glimpse of fall from our collection--it's just a little teaser as there are lots of new bags in the works. The Fall '12 Mary Jo Matsumoto 4FREE colors are dedicated to the lavish excess seen sauntering down the runway--deep velvets, ornate embroideries, plush furs, a hit of gold everywhere and blasts of cobalt. Our Laguna Libertine collection puts a California spin on the decadent dark side of fall with colors that have just enough joie de vivre to wear every day everywhere.
First up, Wilde Blue Yonder, dedicated to one of our favorite Libertines, Oscar Wilde. In the vein of our best selling Trestles, Wilde Blue Yonder will satisfy the most discerning cobalt aficianado with an undercurrent of shimmer that's dead on with fall's most important distinct blue shade.
Of course Oscar always had a sparkling bon mot for every occasion, which is why our take on this season's glamorous gold is included in this libertine trio. Bypassing glitter for subtle shine, this little bottle of Bon Mots will brighten up your workouts and cocktail repartee.
Finally, no card carrying libertine would be complete without a scandalous lover. This deep but bright red will satisfy your most wicked intentions...
p.s. Our winter shades sold out in the first couple of weeks of arriving and I have a feeling that Laguna Libertine is going to go quickly, so if you are thinking about this trio, the colors are a great way to spice up your summer wardrobe and move right into fall.
