The ladies of Eskell announced the arrival of their spring 2009 collection (some of which is available for online purchase). I ranted about shorts last week, yet I can't help but be charmed by the high-waisted Edie shorts. Just make sure your legs are in good shape if you break these out. And wear heels.



A pencil skirt shows Eskell's patented mix of sophistication and vintage bohemia:



This sweet dress has potential to become a go-to summer frock:


As usual, designers Elizabeth Del Castillo and Kelly Whitesell reference a mish-mash of eras. A cream, black-trimmed panel on a camisole makes me think of the bodice of a dress from the late 1800s; high waists reference the 1940s, and ethnic prints bring the 70s to mind--as well as the contemporary zig-zaggy prints of Missoni.
