Breaking out of the winter blues is hard to do. Luckily, Lilith’s spring preview lends a helping hand by coaxing the monotony out of the chillier seasons with not-too-bright neutral tans, browns, cool strawberry sorbets, and icy blue/greys and pinks. Assorted prints in vintage florals, polka dots, and plaids give shoppers enough variety to find a print or pattern that they’ll gladly shed their layers for.
Fun Ikat inspired graphics on purses and coats lend a tropical vibe to welcome the summer months while the many floral prints range from the big and exotic to the girlishly ditsy. Typical Spring standards – resort striped tees, island beads, lightweight denim and khaki, are thrown in to the pot for easy mix and match while the more adventurous can wear dresses of layered and tiered tulle or feathered hair accessories.
Cleverly tailored blazers in slim fits to roomier and exaggerated silhouettes can be layered over the soft drapey pieces that display the unmistakable Lilith signature. Easy wrap and tie sweaters and blouses (in both woman and girl sizes!) pair sweetly with calf length dresses and skirts.
The ease of wear and slow re-introduction to color works well to soften the integration of Lilith’s Spring pieces to the already existing wardrobe. After all, to us, Spring cleaning means throwing out the old, tired things from last season to make room for the refreshing new must-haves of this season.

Along a darling row of shops on Mulberry sits Lilith, a beautifully ambianced storefront and space with dark wood accents and a ripple of cranberry wall. The boutique is a veritable treasure trove of unique hand crafted pieces meant for layering while also being statement pieces on all their own. From jewelry, knit vests, mesh basics, leather shoes and much more, the assortment shows a true dedication to the French design team’s vision. Lilly Barreth, head designer, is inspired mainly by Rei Kawakubo’s Comme des Garçons (along with other asian designers of the 70’s and 80’s) and designs for the multi-faceted woman.
