A Fall Favorite – The Fannie!

Posted on September 1, 2011 in More Fun by | 3 comments

Lilly does color – always has, always will.  We have to say, we absolutely loooove it when trends fall in line with what we do best.  Colored denim – CHECK! Colorblock – CHECK!  (The ever-fashionable Abraham is embracing the trend in his designs and his wardrobe)  Colorblocking is a trend we’ve been seeing since spring & it has no plans to leave us in the dark anytime soon.

Abraham & Erin, two of our finest dress designers, inspired by a very chic vintage Lilly dress [dating back to the mid-60's!], designed one of our favorite fall dresses, the Fannie, with the colorblock trend in mind.  They fell in love with the whipstich detailing and incorporated the body style of our best-selling Finn dress to create a versatile knit dress that goes from end-of-summer bare to early-winter layered!

The Fannie comes in three colorways – Brazilian Brown Combo & Pink Tomato Combo – available now and a Bright Navy Combo available in our September delivery.  Adorbs in every color!

How about some Gameday dresses–with our favorite team colors? I’d like a Garnet and Black one, please! :)

Is the yellow dress in the picture with Erin and Abraham the vintage dress that inspired this season’s Fannie?

I love this dress! I have both of the released colors and will likely pick up the blue with my September order from KOP. I would also love to know the story behind the Fiona (since I will eventually own it in every color, too–it’s a fantastic dress)!
