We just got back from New York City for our spring/summer 2024 buying trip! We always get tons of questions on what market is like so we wanted to bring you a little recap and sneak peak into spring/summer 2024 at Eleanor! Going to market allows us to meet with our vendors face to face, touch and feel every product and carefully examine the fit of every piece.
Last week we looked at over 30 different brands. We met with each brand rep and looked at every single collection. We carefully and thoughtfully analyze every brand, compare prices, quality and styles to make sure we are bringing you the best merchandise every season. 
Our first appointment of the trip was Frank & Eileen, a new brand for us that we are so thrilled to now carry in both stores. We spent the morning getting to know the brand and carefully looking at all their different styles, cuts, patterns, and fabrics. While we were in the showroom we had the honor of meeting the founder, Audrey McLoghlin and learned more about her incredible business.
After we stopped by the Rails and A.L.C store in Soho to see their collections displayed! A.L.C has been one of our best-selling brands in both stores. Their designs are always elevated and on trend.

Then we looked at a few of our favorite denim vendors like Mother, Moussy AGOLDE and Citizens of Humanity! We saw over 150 pairs of jeans, varying in styles, fabrics, and fit.

. After looking at different collections you can start to see the common colors, trends, and styles that are going to be popular for the season! We make sure to stay on top of the trends and find the best pieces for our stores.
Ladies, we have to tell you — the wide leg jeans aren't going anywhere. Slouchy oversized silhouettes and chic cargos will be everywhere. You heard it here first.
Spring and summer are the seasons for bright colors and STAUD did not disappoint. Soft pinks, bright yellows and deep blues were all over showroom. Spectacular dresses and full length maxi skirts filled the racks.  Another trend that's here to stay? Maxi Skirts. Full-length skirts. Denim. Satin. Pleated. All of them. We saw them in almost every collection!
Our last appointments of the trip were Ulla Johnson and Nili Lotan. Ulla Johnson is always one of our favorite showrooms to visit because the details are impeccable and the atmosphere is buzzing. We got to see all the runway looks and then viewed the full collection. Bold prints, bright colors and lace details were everywhere.
Our final stop of the buying trip was another new brand for us, Nili Lotan.  A brand we have had our eye on for awhile now and absolutely adore. The brand is luxurious, chic, and timeless. All of the pieces are super wearable and effortless. 
We know you are going to love this brand just as much as we did and we can't wait to introduce you to all the new brands we picked up along the way. 
Stay tuned for Spring/Summer 2024 at Eleanor!
