Love Story at Center of Edwing D'Angelo's 'Beauty Attack'

HEAD’S UP: In case you haven’t heard, it’s fall. Autumn! What a wonderful time of year, no? For weeks now, those in the rag trade have been rolling out their new stock for shoppers who may be in the market for a few more threads and layers or to get shoppers in said mood. To help trade and to help VEVLYN’S PEN readers and followers (potential shoppers), Yours Truly will be bringing to your attention over the next few weeks or so various fall collections. What shall I call these snapshots, for I won’t bore you with a treatise? Yes! I've got it: “Glimpses of Fall.” I reckon just about every Thursday through Thanksgiving or November (whichever comes first; I haven’t checked the calendar:o), I’ll provide a peek at a collection/line/brand that I deem captivating and worthy of your notice. Happy shopping! (potentially).

BILLED as designer Edwing D’Angelo's “first cinematic release,” “Beauty Attack” is a short film chronicling his Fall 2012 collection.

A brief meditation on the lifestyle of those who wear the designs of the Columbian-born, Harlem-based creator, “Beauty Attack” is described as a love story that takes place in New York City. Cryptic!

The good guys are the clothing and the attitude. No mention of the bad guy(s). Could he/it/they be the designer’s mood at the time he conceived the collection at the end of 2011?

Watch and possibly learn. Also challenge the mind to ascertain the direction of the brand – another clue embedded in Fall 2012.

If that’s not a mystery ...

Visit to learn more about the line, including where to shop the collection.
