Eryn Brinie Fall 2010

Where & When: Wednesday, February 10 from 2-4 p.m., Eryn Brinie store, Soho
Runway Recap: At Fashion Week, one can see everything from $20 T-shirts to $20,000 evening gowns. But perhaps the most gratifying shows are those at which you find yourself shopping--after all, this blog is called Cheryl Shops. Eryn Brinie is a Korean chain with its first U.S. store in Soho, and, as it turns out, is one of my recent favorite places at which to shop. The clothes are trendy and inexpensive but well made and grown-up; in other words, they're exactly what you've been looking for. For fall, Eryn Brinie showed layered looks incorporating chunky knits, strong-shouldered jackets, and tissue-thin T-shirts; almost everything was paired with skinny pants or leggings. The label excels at feminine clothes that aren't too girly, and a series of tired ruffled looks struck a perfect balance.
Standout Look: While there were many great jackets on show, from trench coats to puffers, this was my favorite look: a billowing striped cropped tee and pleated pants that manage to be both slouchy and skinny at the same time. It's two pieces that aren't in my closet yet but, come fall, I expect will be joining it.
Bonus Points: Spiked cider helped the crowd warm up from the disastrous snowy weather outside, although I stuck to the coconut water included in the gift bag.
Where to Buy: Eryn Brinie store, 501 Broadway (Spring & Broome Sts.), and at
