Racing around to all the NYC fashion shows and events has its benefits--I get the scoop on small brands like Shirin that are breathing fresh air into fashion.
Shirin is all about boutique quality tops. Momtrends feels these tops are worth a splurge. Why do I love them? These tees are fancy enough to be a favorite of your 4-year-old, but remain tasteful. That's right. Not everything needs to be hot pink and glittery to appeal to girls. It's called GOOD DESIGN. At Shirin they seem to rely on unusual sleeve treatments and gorgeous graphics. This Wonderland Butterfly tee costs $48, but it is a mini work of art. It coodinates with so many key colors for fall--silver, purple, chocolate.
ShirinNYC first got on my radar for a set of trunk shows here in NYC. Then I got to meet the designers in person at the Bubble Show (a chidlren's trade show) and I expect the line to expand in wonderful ways. And don't for get about the Mommy & Me $95 for the gray puff print tees shown below.
