April 2012

Spring is traditionally a time of renewal, growth and hope. It is a time "when the hounds of spring are on winter's traces" (Algernon Swinburne) and we can go forward with a spring (no pun intended) in our step! 


This prime time of the year brings stunning weather as 'blossom by blossom the spring begins" (Swinburne, again) and we are reminded anew how lovely Palm Beach can be. Strolling down Worth Avenue, poking into the little bougainvillea-laced Vias, wandering into the wonderful variety of shops and eateries, sitting in the quiet serenity of the parks and gardens that are in full bloom, watching the ocean's twinkling waves...Palm Beach surely is paradise!


Whether we live or visit here, for the first time or for many

years, spring in Palm Beach is like no other place...it is magical. We hope that Classic Collections is part of the magic for you as you explore the treasures that we offer! With "Spring Cleaning" in full force, we are delighted to have greatly augmented our stock of luxury clothing, handbags, shoes, costume jewelry, accessories, formal wear and fine jewelry. New merchandise is arriving every day and much of it is brand new!


So, whether you are in the mood for a new Hermes handbag, flirty Manolo sandals, little black Valentino cocktail dresses, Chanel shoes, flippy Cavalli skirts or you just want to be surprised, come on in! It's time for a fresh start!        



Lavish in Lavin
Diva's and Dames

Have you been reading the fashion press lately? Almost every page is chock full of the most wonderful variety of trending spring dresses. Of course, half of the trends come from different eras, so while the styles look vaguely familiar, in an "everything old is new again" mode, you will see rich patterns, polka dots, tailored shirtdresses and lavishly draped silks and jerseys. 


Carolina Herrera

Channeling your inner Mad Men Mode, you can renew your look with a polka dotted Caroline Herrera spring frock and dress it up with a bright, colorful handbag and shoe ensemble. Why not put on those big, round sunglasses and tie an Hermes scarf around your head a/la Grace Kelly?


Looking for something comfortable yet sexy and packable? We have a tremendous assortment of dresses from the collections of Roberto Cavalli and Save the Queen. Known for their fine fabrics, interesting, form fitting styles and whimsical and jaunty prints, these designers have cornered the market for fashions that can be dressed up, travel well (think in a tiny, little carryon) and

Save The Queen

are flattering to almost all figures! 


Always glamorous, we can't forget the delightful and timeless styles of Valentino, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Lavin and others. While perhaps out of bounds budget-wise, these traditional and classic dresses are affordable and a treasure to find at consignment boutiques. Right now, Classic Collections has an assortment of these designers for your shopping of pleasure...but hurry in...they go fast!


Gold and Diamond Bracelet
You simply will not believe the wonderful assortment we have recently received of current, fashionable "every day" gold jewelry! From heavy cuffs to bangles, chunky necklaces and matching bracelets, stunning earrings all sparkling with the beauty of 14K and 18K gold.
Sign Retti

Enjoy the elegant 14K "portrait" bracelet with gold fringe by
designer Rae. For instant fashion appeal, wear the sold, statement Sign Retti matching necklace and bracelet in 18K gold. Like the classic jewelry designed by David Yurman? Come in and see the necklace and cuff, necklace and ring sets as well as a silver and diamond necklace! 


Hermes Plume Bag

Are you lusting for a new Chanel, Judith Leiber, Bottega Veneta or Hermes handbag? We are awash with the most marvelous handbags for your spring shopping pleasures!


Enjoy choosing the simple "Garden" tote or the classic style of a "Plume" bag by Hermes. For evening, try the elegant leather clutch with dangling pearl tassel

Chanel Clutch With Fringe Tassel

by Chanel or the unique and rare Obi evening clutch by Judith Leiber.


Whether it's for a wedding, luncheon or simply dinner with good friends, we have an enormous assortment of luxury handbags in stock right now. And as any fashionable woman knows, the bag and accessories can "make" any outfit sublime!


Yves St. Laurent

Speaking of accessories, Classic Collections has a sublime selection of all kinds of accessories to brighten up your spring outfits!


What fashionista wouldn't have a couple of terrific belts to show off on a dress, over a long tunic or dress up a pair of ordinary slacks? Take a peek at our Yves St. Laurent crocodile and faux leopard wide belt, various slender classic crocodile belts or colorful leather belts to perk up any outfit!

Leather Goods


Looking for a small gift or pick-me-up? Zip right over to our Louis Vuitton luggage tags, small key chain zip wallets or perfectly pink Chanel make up pouches. 


Of course, the default accessory to enhance any ensemble is always an elegant scarf. With designers such as Hermes, Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Pucci and others, we offer a wide selection of colors, sizes and fabrics from beautiful, rolled Hermes silk to breezy silk Ferragamo chiffon, to the classic patterns of Pucci on their impeccably woven Italian silk. The final fashion statement is that scarves fit everyone...so no worries about size!


Chic in Chanel

If sunglasses are your private vice, we have lots of designers from which to choose! Dior, Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Oscar de la Renta, Chanel, Cartier and other designer eyewear come into the shop on a regular basis. But move fast...these spectacular spectacles are snapped up like hot chocolate chip cookies! Hmmmm..... does that sound good!
