Bucket Bag: The bucket bag is a core silhouette continued this season with Louis Vuitton making a strong statement with their appliques, embossing and metal accents giving a new look to the bag. The bucket bag also reduces its shape, becoming a more condensed version of what has previously been seen, with the exception of Dior and Moschino, who drift toward a much larger carryall shape.

Vertical Drop Pendant: A newcomer for spring 2015 is the vertical drop pendant. It creates a longer neckline while the extended silhouette greatens the potential for creativity; the possibilities are endless.

Braided Belt: The braided belt goes beyond the norm with metal accents and touches like utility buckles. The tuck through is all the rage for belts this season, allowing for extra-long tab to tuck through the belt itself.

Neck Scarf: The neck scarf, though simple, allows for a bold statement with material choice and details, including fringes, scalloped trims and wired edges. It opens the door to all types of creativity and opportunity for self-expression.

Bomber Jacket: The bomber jacket is the number one must have item in outerwear this season. So much material diversity, including mesh, sheer, satin and quilted applications. It’s a perfect cross to turn any outfit from Sporty to Edgy and Classy.

Now the color block Burberry coat is sold out almost everywhere! So what is it about this piece that makes it our signature fall trend?

It would be too simple to say that the piece is chic. To be a signature trend, especially for fall, it has to possess something extra special and this definitely has that “it” factor.

Craziness at Alexander Wang’s SS14 Show #NYFW

September 8th, 2014   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

Craziness-at-Alexander-Wang-s-SS14-Show--NYFW

 

It’s New York Fashion Week, and what show is better to start the craziness than Alexander Wang? It was a star studded event with the front row being filled by names like Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Die Antwood, Kim Gordon, Tyga and Miguel. Not only did Minaj come to support the event, she even went a step further to teach a class to the models backstage: How to Anaconda 101. Now that’s a class to sign up for. With her new video, the spotlight has been on Minaj’s assets now more than ever. Wang invited Minaj backstage to show the models, who ended up being looking more awkward and uncomfortable than sexy, how to do some of her moves from the video. They were clearly lacking what is needed to Anaconda, ahem, but A for effort anyways! Another face that appeared late that night at the after party was Miley Cyrus, who showed up in her most controversial outfit yet: ice cream pasties! She paired it with a pretty simple look, black pants, sneakers and a pair of Miley DIY cat eye sunglasses. It’ll be hard to top this one but we’ll be sure to look out more of her DIY outfit projects at Jeremy Scott’s show where they will be making a debut.

Sophia Bush Teams Up with Joe Fresh to Design a T-shirt, and It’s for a Good Cause!

ophia Bush Teams Up with Joe Fresh to Design a T-shirt, and It’s for a Good Cause!

 

Canadian retailer Joe Fresh opened his first flagship store in NYC just three years ago, and has since then made a name for him as a brand that is affordable and trendy. To celebrate the launch of his new e-commerce website in the USA, Fresh recruited Sophia Bush a loved actress and activist to design a t-shirt for the brand. Not long after Bush became the face of the #TurnColorOn campaign, a marketing campaign meant to focus on the color saturated collections. The actress, who is known for being a hard core activist, gave insight into what the people at Joe Fresh were thinking designing this t-shirt: “When [the people at Joe Fresh] were talking about launching this online experience, the general consensus was: ‘Look, that’s cool, but what don’t we launch for a reason. Why don’t we really do some good for the world.’” The end result? A Sophia Bush original with 100% of the proceeds going to the Human Rights Campaign, a civil rights organization fighting for the equality of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender Americans. “Everyone should be able to love who they love, and sadly, we’re still fighting legislation that’s trying to marginalize equality,” said the actress. “I hate that certain people are treated differently than others just because of who they love. In this world that is full of such strife and war and poverty, where we see people struggling, what is the point of wasting a moment criticizing who somebody loves?” The concept of Bush’s design is simple yet full of meaning, “all kisses are created equal, and love should never be divided.” Sophia Bush, you have done it again. #YouGoGirl!

VMA #FlashbackSunday: Katy Perry and Riff Raff vs. Amber Rose

August 25th, 2014   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

FlashbackSunday-Katy-Perry-and-Riff-Raff-vs-Amber-Rose

So it seems as if there was a #FlashbackSunday memo that we did not receive. Last night, for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Katy Perry, Riff Raff, and Amber Rose showed up in ensembles that were reminiscent of some of the most unforgettable moments in VMA fashion history. Back in 2001, a time when the most loved couple in pop music, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, was still together, they showed up at the Video Music Awards in matching denim outfits. They were honestly so cute we forgave them for the fashion faux pa immediately, but we never forget the outfits. It seems as if Katy Perry and Riff Raff didn’t either as they showed up last night wearing matching denim outfits as well. To top it off Riff Raff had bright pink braids in his hair. As if that wasn’t enough, let us go back even further to 1998 when Rose McGowan showed up to the VMA’s in the infamous barely there dress that left people speechless. Amber Rose, apparently never forgot the dress as she showed up last night in a 2014 version of the barely there dress herself. Although to Amber Rose’s credit, she is not showing as much skin as McGowan, it’s safe to say these stars weren’t trying to leave any room for the imagination.
