I checked out my store today for the new Special Edition Ruffle and Bow items which I believe will be what is uploaded for Thanksgiving/Black Friday. Last year the upload was special edition Cuddle Up Jackets so I figure these special edition items are meant for Thanksgiving as well. The Cool Racerbacks where priced at $48 and the one that I assumed I’d like the best, The ‘Lace Mesh’ Cool Racerback, I liked the least. Its not soft mesh like what is used in the running line for ventilation (circle mesh), its a rougher feeling double layer of mesh across the entire back panel. The Cool Racerback I thought I’d like the least, the ‘Velvet Bow’ one was actually quite cute. I’m not sure how the velvet bow will hold up to washing but in store it looked pretty. I wish it had velvet trim along the neckline and a little bow off to the side instead of down the back. I passed on it since I don’t need a black Cool Racerback but if it comes in a nice soft grey I’d probably go for it. The other two Cool Racerbacks, ‘Ruffled Hem’ and Ruffles where cute too but I wasn’t tempted by them.
I didn’t see them in store today but there will also be ruffled speed shorts, ruffled nice asana jacket, ruffled form and some wunder unders and grooves with these little lace, ruffle or bow details. To have a look at some of these items you can check out the Honk Kong website.
