Wishlist Wednesday: Gryphon New York

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Today's guest post Wishlist Wednesday comes courtesy of the lovely, ever stylish and creative Alix of alixrose. I was just thinking about fall coats recently, and Alix chose a few images from the Fall 2009 collection of New York based label, Gryphon.

Wednesday Wish List: Gryphon New York - A Coat for Every Occasion

Text by Alix of alixrose

Living in Seattle you live with this feeling, a feeling that can only be described as an emptiness. The emptiness stemming from the fact that you can never have enough coats. Truthfully, the coat part of my closet is larger than the regular part of my closet, but in Seattle you do spend the better part of the year in them, thanks to the rain and wind …but I am not complaining . So when I stumbled onto the Gryphon New York website, I felt like I had encountered a designer who understood my situation.

Gryphon Fall 2009 Beaded Collar Dress @ Dream Sequins

Gryphon Fall 2009 Balkans Dress @ Dream Sequins

Gryphon Fall 2009 Lace Dress @ Dream Sequins

Gryphon Fall 2009 Bleached Sweatpants @ Dream Sequins

Gryphon Fall 2009 Jacquard Dress @ Dream Sequins

Gryphon Fall 2009 Rocker Vest @ Dream Sequins

Gryphon Fall 2009 Plaid Button Down @ Dream Sequins

We took the iconic coat and played with fit and form, but always with an eye to the practical.

Staying true to our origins, we continue to offer fashion forward designs in weather protective fabrics each season.

The beautiful thing about these coats and why they are on my wish list is because rain or shine, Seattle to Australia, these coats will stand out. All images and quotes from Gryphon Fall 2009. To learn more check out http://gryphon-ny.com.

Oh, wow, Dee, I didn't know you were in Thailand! Was just thinking I hadn't heard from you & came to visit. What a lovely idea to have guest posts while you're away. Thank you, Alix, it's a lovely array of coats - it's funny, you've got each of my favourite trends covered. Trying to pick my favourite.. I think I'd go with the top, the trench, because it's classic and practical, and I"m that kind of girl. If I had to have one, that is!

Dee have a great & safe trip. Thanks for arranging to keep us occupied while you're gone. xoxo
