Trend Alert: Aspen Chic from Cole Haan
November 20, 2005
Calling all snow bunnies! Luxury fashion retailer Cole Haan recently introduced its Aspen Chic line, pronounced one of seven fall trends by the oldie-but-goodie company. The line features outerwear and accessories decked out in shearling, mink and rabbit. Although some organizations, who shall remain nameless, would toss a bucket of red paint my way, I find the clothing luxurious. Take, for example, the wool and baby alpaca coat that goes for $1,600. With its detachable mink collar, the jacket is as sophisticated as casual wear gets. However, it’s not quite time to nickname the company “Cool Haan” yet. I see a few items with fringe. I don’t “do” dangle. Equally perplexing are the Gypsy sandals offered as part of the otherwise cold weather line. But, heh, if you’re going to sit by a roaring fire all night sipping hot toddies, who cares what shoes you wear? Find Aspen Chic and other goodies at colehaan.com.
