Playtime: Fall 2012 Fashion Preview

legs get the color treatment at esp no.1 (left) and another new yorker, noch, with cashmere leggings (right)
i waddled my way through the spring edition of playtime this weekend. this year the fair was much bigger even sans the maternity section and a pathetic excuse for a pop-up shop, but my heart felt a little heavy not to see many brands that are usually at the fair. the biggest upset being that clover nyc is on hiatus (sob!)...i hope they come back soon. i'll sum up fall fashion in these three words: color, collaboration and creative prints...

little esop bring it with stripes in all colors. loving this bright yellow
my new favorite brand tannhauser from austria. you're looking at the most amazing cashmere vest (on left) and adorable handcrafted clogs
tannhauser and noé & zoë get together and create beautiful printed cashmere pieces (left) and more adorable creations from noé & zoë another of my favorite brands of the moment
neon pink and acid yellow are the colors to watch at noé & zoë.  i'm really into everything this berlin duo is up to!
more goodness from noé & zoë
oeuf had a giant booth that i could have spent all day admiring the new pieces for fall. like these little bow ties and mitten with bright details
it might have to do with the fact that i am about to welcome a new one, but the new welcome collection from oeuf is probably what i am the most excited about. white. pima cotton.  yes, please!
neon is all over the fall collection of lucky fish
how excited was i to see uruguayan trommpo in the flesh?! these colored knits are so south american and perfect for a chilly day
more cuteness from trommpo
for the first time i was checking out girl's stuff! ode from nyc features tons of fun indian prints and alpaca knits for girls. 
more from ode

the americans had a strong showing this time. mabo from utah of all places has some of the sweetest things for little kids including these beautiful slips-ons
i am wild about this new spanish label lila. this is my kind of baby clothes....cotton prints as far as the eye can see! the boys stuff was a little less exciting but some fun colors (on right) 
lila's fall collection
adorable spring pieces
more on this later, but P.A.M. of australia teamed up with esp no. 1 to create this really fun and edgy range
beautiful woolen hats from vancouver by patouche
also my idea of what a little girl should wear...jumina is a norwegian label that makes it easy for little girls to step into a fairytale! more on all these lines and other to come this fall!
