What season is this?

Gwyneth Paltrow last month in Stella McCartney Fall 2012-2013 boots

As I add things to our shop, I am struck by the quickening pace of the fashion seasons. I get why there are swimsuits in December since many people go on holiday in the winter, but pre Fall in May stumps me. Resort is slowly going on sale and Spring is soon to follow. Leather jackets and wool trousers are starting to pop up here and there and you can pre-order Fall at Bergdorfs.

I know what I want for fall but am not sure I want to buy it now and have it sitting around. Why? Because I will wear it. And maybe that’s okay. Perhaps I need to be less rigid about seasons and buy what I like when it’s available. Actually, I have always sort of shopped this way- like grazing. I see it, love it, buy it. Who cares when it’s meant to be worn. If the temperature is in the 50′s and you just bought a pre-fall moto jacket, by all means, wear it!
