Mitchells is celebrating its sixtieth anniversary this fall. Over the years, the family business has consistently delivered the latest styles from the biggest names in fashion. While much has changed—new generations, locations and lines from design powerhouses—it remains committed to the freshest looks. Here’s what Andrew Mitchell-Namdar, vice president of marketing and creative services, is eyeing now.
Sophisticated layers for day
MICHAEL KORS FOR PATTERN PLAY
“We love the way Michael Kors mixed prints and patterns this season. This look truly personifies personal styling at its best.”
NILI LOTAN FOR HIS LOOK OH HER
“Feminine tailoring with fabrics borrowed from the boys are always an important message for us. This fall we are looking forward to being all buttoned up in double breasted blazers. Nili’s version is one of our favorites! We are thrilled to welcome Nili Lotan to Mitchells.”
ERMENEGILDO ZEGNA FOR HIS PAIRINGS
“The Ermenegildo Zegna Collection mixes the finest fabrics and expert tailoring with unexpected elements, like sporty details and relaxed silhouettes. We encourage our customers to mix and match casual pieces with more traditional ones for a look that feels fresh and modern.”
BRUNELLO CUCINELLI FOR DETAILS
“The master of casual elegance entices with luxurious layering and texture—and shine. Cashmere with paillettes paired with liquid silk knife pleats in the richest petrol blue is the best way to arrive at any party. The sweater leaves just enough to the imagination, with a surprise in the back.”
Dramatic and bold style for night
L’GANCE FOR A LUXE LITTLE BLACK DRESS
“Leopard has become a staple print, and we are happy to see it prominently featured in the fall collections. This dress from L’Agence is a great alternative to a classic LBD and is just as versatile.”
AKRIS FOR A STATEMENT-MAKING LOOK
“Straight from the runway, this graphic black-and-white striped coat from Akris manages to make a bold statement while still being super chic.”
VALENTINO FOR EYE-CATCHING EVENT BAG
“Valentino’s signature rockstud bags show no signs of slowing down. This season, the cross-body shape is reinterpreted with quirky embroidery.”
JIMMU CHOO FOR FOOTWEAR FANATICS
“It’s all in the details for accessories this fall. Intricate
lacing up the sides adds an edge to classic black booties from Jimmy Choo.”
