If you haven’t already, it’s high time you met Vince (that’s VINCE. to you). Established in 2002 by Rea Laccone and Christopher LaPolice, the duo have revolutionized the meaning of casual chic: Gone are the days when t-shirts were restricted to the gym and sweaters were the clunky, un-cool garments favored by librarians the world over. No, VINCE. has cemented its’ status as the go-to store for luxe basics- only with a little additional fur and sparkle. See the Fall 2011 collection for any further evidence.

Before you get to thinking that “basic” equals “boring,” the wunderkinds at VINCE. have ensured that their fall offerings maintain the comfort they’re known for without sacrificing an ounce of style. Charcoal, aubergine, camel and cinnamon staples-tissue-thin cashmere sweaters and silk T’s- are punctuated with pewter sparkles, leather sheath dresses and espresso shearling coats that would look right at home in Soho or Aspen.

Perhaps the boldest pieces of the fall, though, are the 100% coyote vest and shrug. Leave it to VINCE. to make fur a closet essential; sumptuous without appearing over-the-top, these two pieces practically ooze laid-back decadence. This is fur that you want to wear right now and never want to take off. This is fur done right.

If fur isn’t what you’re looking for this fall, fear not for the geniuses at VINCE. have created something for you too. Eschewing drab in favor of bold, this years’ sweaters are the kind you buy in every color because of the perfect drape at the hem, the too-long sleeves perfect for rolling and trendy color blocking updated in a fall palette.

No matter what basics you’re looking for, VINCE. has you covered this fall. Visit www.vince.com for more info.
