There is something very Upper West Side about the new Korean label Morine Comte Marant that just hit Babel Fair... and we adore it! The sophisticated jackets and feminine frocks are already flying out the door (one beautiful white silk dress was purchased hot off the rack yesterday as a casual wedding dress). The brilliant must-have pieces, set in a rich Fall palette of red, mustard yellow, auburn and ivory are offered in lush fabrics like silk, velvet and wool. Impeccably crafted for the confident young woman, the romantic details and chic silhouettes possess that pure and polished effect of the UWS/Olivia Palermo type. And to go that extra mile, select pieces are paired with unique costume necklaces-- sold as one! You really can't go wrong-- they made sure of that.
Embrace your inner Blair Waldorf. We know you want to...

Funktional's new Fall collection is staying true to the edgy silhouettes and distinctive details of past seasons-- but this time adding some grunge glamour the mix. Hmm... I'm suddenly not so sad to bid farewell to summer. Sayonara to the heat! I'm ready for cozy flannel, army jackets and silk paneled sweatshirts! Not to mention... cargo pants are back with a vengeance! Get yours at BF.

In the gothic area of Barcelona, down a dark cobble stone walkway we stumbled upon the beautiful design house of El Delgado Buil that surfaces somewhat unexpectedly. Filled with Summer 10's gorgeous collection of subdued sea foam greens, lilacs, and pale pinks El Delgado Buil has built themselves a small design haven - one part shop, one part design studio. Although it feels like somewhat of a discovery, the two designers Anna Delgado and Macarena Buil who met at Escola Superior de Disseny have won the Marie Claire Best Spanish Designer award, as well as collaborated with large retailers, Kipling and even Play Station on specialized design projects. With no retailers yet in the states, Babel Fair will be amongst the first and couldn't be more excited.
