Visions of the 1970s and “you can’t tell me not to mix black and blue!” colorblocking are big for pre-fall at Saint Cloud, Rice Village’s go-to boutique for wanderlust-inducing clothing, accessories, and home goods. At a private, sit-down dinner and showcase, the owners brought out their favorite pieces for this transitional mini-season while guests enjoyed food from Cafe Brasil and ice cream sandwiches made from macarons from Ricca Co

Inspired by shades of cognac, wine, camel, and navy, creative director and co-owner Cecilia Marquez looked to the Dazed and Confused era to create a story for fall.

“I see one piece or one campaign, and that really sets me off,” she said. “From there, I like to build a narrative around it for different categories of the store. I found a brown leather and denim Jerome Dreyfuss bag, and it just stuck with me. I had that in my head as I bought for the season.”

In addition to items like a pair of hexagon glasses that invoke Anjelica Huston’s chic aesthetic, the shop is heavily featuring items in black and blue. The colorblocked, minimalist items are meant to impart a feeling of rebellion, putting together colors that are usually pulled apart. Clothing and accessories are currently in store, but home goods will be in stock starting in October.
