What’s New and Happening? Leg Fun!

Denim has been a household name; it started with Levi Strauss, and then the fascination of, “What’s next? Who’s next? What next is being created?”

The denim industry has existed because of a cult following, but every now and then there is an excitement that prevails. Notify, a brand that suddenly stands out.

We welcome Maurice Ohayon. He brings nostalgia back to the woman. He has infused his collections with the spirit of yesteryear, creating and giving the wearer of his jean a true feeling of luxury. NOTIFY, a co-branded denim collection unveiled at BB1 Classic, is an exciting high quality jean made in Italy. Maurice Ohayon is sought after as a designer and has rubbed shoulders with Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney in different collaborations. He continues to push to conquer new boundaries, in which industry, craftsmanship, and art unite as one. A true tailor, unique, he has been described by French journalists as “the Yves Saint Laurent of denim.” His mastery with cut, treatments, and washes, surpass the wildest imagination. A true visionary, and we see, feel, touch, and enjoy wearing it!

The leg fun continues: Tractr brings creativity to the market. This is a jean for your daughter, your granddaughter, and you. Women are loving it. Tractr slides onto our bodies; these jeans are hip, happening and cool. Jean prints are a trend that really has never gone away. I still have my Shabby Chics from 22 years ago, when designers were using lightweight embossed or printed upholstery fabric – but they could cut and style a pant, and we got them up with very little stretch . . . we just couldn’t wait to get them off! Today the stretch in jeans make you feel as though you’re in sweats.

A Girl’s best friend still Sparkles!

Diamonds are forever, but new trend colors add a sophisticated finish to the many facets of a woman’s role. Jewels and Jewelry continue to add a fascination and adornment, and our hand-picked collections are refined and add elegance to any outfit.

Konplott debuts at BB1 Classic. The line is spectacular, the colors are vibrant, and each handmade piece adds a touch of sophistication and mystery to the woman who wears it. Miranda Konstantinidou makes your word sparkle. Her latest jewelry collection of Africanica hand crafted in antique brass elements, inset with multi colored stones to adorn your neck and ears, are featured at BB1 Classic.

An inspirational line of 24 carat gold and 22 silver pendants with inscriptions from Greatest Hits, adds excitement. Olee’s pieces are attention-getters and create nostalgia for those who listened and rocked to these greatest hits. With the approach of Mother’s Day, followed closely by graduations, and then the holidays – not forgetting special birthdays – these are on our A list for gifts. Pieces come with a chain and O lock, are presented in a beautiful box with an inspirational message, and include a personal note card. Oh, I should say, none of these price points break any bank, all under $190 or so.

Crystals are Silver Night and Jet Black to blend with trends. Cabochette Beads and rich colored gems help complete any outfit. A Bonnie vintage crystal neck with t shirt and jeans, or worn with a special gown, will help fulfill any gal’s dream.

For 20 years or so, our silky second skin has been Liquid Metal. The patented handmade ball cuff still remains today’s favorite. It adds a special touch and has been known to sell off your wrist to those who cannot resist it for three times the price you paid for it – the call is yours. It is replaceable when in stock; we do run out.

Life is a whirlwind!

March 2013 has arrived. 2012 has come and gone. It was an exciting 2012 Fall, great fashion; the shopper was discerning, had outstanding judgment recognizing value and quality.

It certainly was not a season of quantity, but no one could resist the crème de la crème! We sailed into January 2013, and Fall Collections continued to sell. Together with incredible new spring/summer collections being unpacked, the WOW factor was strong and even stronger now as we roll into the season of new beginnings.

With all this excitement this year, we have already visited Montreal, New York, markets in Europe, and not forgetting our home turf, Dallas, Texas, planning next Fall. Does this not sound unbelievable? The challenge of finding what women love and the excitement of seeing beautiful collections never ceases to create excitement.

We celebrate all woman, the many roles she undertakes. This Spring Summer is all about color, feeling and looking happy. She wears her authority with grace, she loves feminine elegance and sophisticated simplicity, she is classic with a twist, she is the BB1 Classic Customer.

Our collections offer new elements. Luisa Cerano, Apriori, Marc Aurel, St Emile: cut for the woman, Italian fabrics designed to fit today’s lifestyle. Collections that hang with the greats: Armani, Prada and so many others.

The mix of BB1 Classic collections from Spain, Brazil, Italy, France and our own American designers help create your own personal style. The theme is Minimalist, as in classic, Romantic, always with a touch of  Radiance and Glamour, keeping up with the female shift, in her busy world of meetings, economics, science, literature, politics, medical health, teachers, professors, associates and managers, wife, mom daughter, sister and chief cook. She defies labels and definitions; she signifies poise and confidence. She is today’s modern woman.
