GLAMOURPUSS UPS ACCESSORIES: At its core, Glamourpuss is based on extremes. The fashion line was dreamed up by co-founders Gigi Mortimer and Courtney Moss after bonding over the freezing weather at their sons’ hockey games. Together, the duo created a line of fur funnel scarves — as Moss described, the perfect way to stay warm but still look fashionable. From there, the brand turned to the opposite end of the weather spectrum: beachwear, designing a beach-ready collection of cover ups, tunics, and UV 50 protection apparel.
Now, five years after launching the brand in fall 2009, Glamourpuss is ready to outfit its customer for all seasons. For spring 2015, Glamourpuss will offer shoes and handbags, offered in three distinct groups of signature prints: Soleil Ete, an ode to summer with gold accents; Nautical Pop, anchored in stripes and red, white and blue; and Paradise Cove, the brand’s most colorful offering. The collection is offered in a number of styles, including flats, wedges and sandals for shoes, and totes, clutches and minaudières for handbags. Materials include Neoprene, cotton, vinyl and canvas. Handbags will be priced from $170 to $855, while footwear will go from $170 to $350. The new collections will make their official debut at next week’s Coterie show.
