Lanvin Spring|Summer 2014 Campaign Video

I’m sorry, I am a bit confused, is this a campaign for clothing or a review for an über chic café? Lanvin’s Spring|Summer 2014 video is really a mystery to me. Yes it is visually appealing with the ultra white-blonde models dressed in colored metallics contrasting against the stark black emptiness of the background, but…

Lookbooks and Linesheets and Sales, Oh My!

Paris Fashion Week is almost here and soon the city will be flooded with fashionistas, media moguls, and more importantly buyers. Yes, it’s time for Sales Showroom! Fashion wouldn’t be the industry that it is if no one purchased clothes! With an over saturated market of designers, it is more important than ever for up…

Illustration VS Photography | Skinny Models Either Way

I am a big fan of fashion illustrations. There is something classic about the way pen and paper can make clothing look like a dream. And the woman in the drawing looks so chic and glamorous! Colin McDowell recently penned his thoughts about fashion illustrations , the transition to photography in the 1950-60’s and why we…

American Apparel Shocks Again… Why?

The made-in-America-and-proud-of-it company even added the tagline, “Sexy has no expiration date.” But wait a minute, haven’t we seen this picture before? Jacky O’Shaughnessy was first introduced as a model for American Apparel back in 2012…

Bonbon vs. Flowerbomb

So last week, I wrote about Viktor & Rolf’s new fragrance debut, Bonbon. SO while looking at the revealing, it all looked a little bit too familiar… Does anyone even remember the haute couture collection from Viktor & Rolf this past week? The big news from their collection was the debut of their new fragrance,…

Tony Ward Couture

Paris Couture Week was last weeks and I was able to manage some passes for shows. One of my favorite shows was Tony Ward which took place at Hotel Salomon de Rothschild. I really enjoyed some of the intricate and feminine (a la Elie Saab) details of the dresses. The colors ranged from soft whites…

Viktor & Rolf | Bonbon Fragrance

I heard rumblings about a new fragrance from Amsterdam based fashion duo, Viktor & Rolf that would debut during their couture show at the end of Paris Couture Week. So excited to learn my sources were right. As with most couture shows, its no longer just about the clothes. Couture is an expensive industry with…

French Wedding Magazines

I recently got engaged and am super excited to start looking through wedding blogs, magazines, and pinterest boards. So I will apologize in advance for this and any future posts about weddings.

The Spring 2014 campaign pictures for Louis Vuitton came out this week. This is the final hurrah from Marc Jacobs’ influence as Creative Director at the luxury powerhouse before he exits.

Michael Kors X goop

So I have opened a Pandora’s box on my blog because now I can’t stop talking about Michael Kors (see here and here)! My favorite designer has teamed up with the blonde beauty behind the famous goop lifestyle website. Gwyneth Paltrow’s website, goop, is no stranger to setting up collaborations with designers. They offer weekly, exclusive,…

J.Crew Royally Lands in London

Have you seen this week’s Bloomberg Businessweek? Don’t be frightened that the Royal couple decided to pose for these shots! After giggling for a few minutes, I had to find out why Will & Kate were dancing on the cover. So like I said, Bloomberg Businessweek is behind the dancing couple. My favorite thing about…

Tommy Hilfiger Is That You?

What are your first thoughts about Tommy Hilfiger? If you are like me, then you think of red, white, and blue, 90’s fashion, iconic red/blue stripe on denim, etc. But have you taken a look at Tommy lately? Tommy Hilfiger has moved away from the American red, white, and blue, and moved ‘across the pond’,…

Creative Door Press Days

I recently had the chance to to explore the new designers inside the Creative Door SS14 showroom. The colorful showroom was a maze of bright colors, metallic works of art, unconventional fabrics, and exaggerated accessories. There wasn’t a whole lot of branding going on on the Creative Door side other than their black reusable bags….
