There are many reasons we love fall here at CYTIES. Outwear and layers take center stage, our favorite brands drop new collections, the coffee is bolder to combat the chill, trees morph to vibrant yellows and orange on city streets, and leather boots lace up to handle the thinly iced puddles. Like the leaves, fashion floats and falls each year while one thing is as constant as the earth’s tilt, style. Our fall catalog is fit with the classic items that will never fail you in the autumn season while staying stylish and timeless. Built with a hit the concrete state of mind, each piece is as functional as it is appealing. As metropolis dwellers and travelers, it’s obvious that fall is the most artistic season to experience in our great cities. F Scott Fitzgerald said it best… “life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”
