    A look from Pegleg's fall 2008 collection.

    It's no secret we're obsessed with Opening Ceremony. Ever since they launched a special section devoted to Topshop, we've been addicts. The Kate Moss for Topshop dress we picked up last summer? Wore it all season. Good times. The Chloe Sevigny collaboration may have been a little overpriced, but who could resist the utterly '90s combination of plaid, floral, and lace-ups. Oh, and mesh. The mesh was hot.

    Now the downtown hipster emporium has devoted itself to Japanese style—as evidenced by their Hello Kitty-heavy web site—and just announced a new collaboration with New York-based streetwear label Pegleg. The line, helmed by three guys, was initially only for men, but recently launched some select pieces for women—all items in their Fall collection are all cool with a capital "C": More plaid, menswearish tees, and floral leggings. For guys, there's a clever mix of graffiti tees, graphic jackets, and "urban woodcutter" looks (you know, rain jackets with plaid interiors). Expect a similar blend for their partnership with Opening Ceremony, hopefully at price points that won't break the bank.
