Yesterday, we recapped designer Caycee Black’s collection debut at Feature boutique in Brentwood. As it turns out, the designer has more to offer than her clothing collection, with two collaborations in the mix for fall. The first is with fellow Parsons grad, Latoya Leflore, who has designed at Coach for the last four years. Together, Black and Leflore designed a black patent lamb purse for Fall '09, which doubles as a clutch. Secondly, she designed headbands complete with adorable bows with Kristen May Anastasia of Angel Lust accessories. Anastasia got her start (and a motivating one, at that) by catching the eye of the buyer at Patricia Field's boutique, Hotel Venus, in SoHo. The headbands have been seen on "Gossip Girl" and apparently Rose McGowan is a fan.—Kelly Parsons
