Versace’s Second H&M Collection

23 Nov

Donatella Versace

Between the dedicated fans who camped out all night, to the scalpers who purchased a ton of pieces just to jack-up prices on eBay, the Versace Collection for H&M just about sold out everywhere almost instantaneously. This demand sparked a ton of speculation on the upcoming second collection that Versace is projected to release for H&M this January. While there are a ton of rumors, the collection is shrouded in mystery for the time being, so everyone’s just going to have to hang on. The line might not even be available to all!

As per WWD (story since removed, adding more mystery to the mystery), the spring pre-collection is reported to hit H&M stores on January 19th, but only in countries that have an H&M e-commerce site (aka NOT the USA). If this is true, I have a funny feeling those throwing the collections up on eBay might become more popular & less annoying by giving American shoppers Versace justice!

I believe I speak for all of us U.S. fashionistas by stating I hope H&M changes their mind & does a full release. Don’t discriminate, H&M! We love fashion too!

Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2012 Collection STOLEN?!

17 Nov

Marc Jacobs

The famed designer’s entire Spring 2012 collection of sample sizes vanished on a train from Paris. Who would steal samples? The collection consisted of 46 looks and all have reportedly been stolen. The collection was on its way from Paris to London for a European press day. Marc’s PR team released this statement via e-mail: “The Marc Jacobs PR team is sorry to inform you that our press day tomorrow in the Marc Jacobs store is cancelled, due to the theft of the spring/summer 2012 collections during its transfer from Paris”.

Reports are saying the collection is being sent to a factory for mass production & distribution at knock-off prices. Hopefully Marc has a ton of patterns & sketches, in case the collection gets released or this “knock-off” scheme holds true.

Top Looks!

24 Oct

Now that NYFW is over & I’ve had some time to digest all the fabulous fashion hits from the runways, I’ve compiled my top looks from Spring/ Summer 2012 (in no hierarchical order):

Badgley Mischka

Badgley Mischka showed the ultimate take on femininity with a plunging neckline, fitted, knee-length dress. The jewel-tones are consistent with the Spring/ Summer 2012 trends & the detailing is simply stunning.

Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta is always displaying his show-stopping designs & this strapless gown is no different. I am absolutely floored to know that lace detailing is having a moment and the crop-top he chose to add texture to this look is on the top of my “must have” list.

Carolina Herrera

Carolina Herrera uses a simple lined pattern to create a look that’s anything but simplistic. I love the flirty & ultra-feminine look a belted waist gives, too.

Rebecca Minkoff

Rebecca Minkoff took “Ready to Wear” fashion and stole the show. Everything about this look is accessible & super chic. Again, the jewel-toned hues are big Big BIG for Spring/ Summer, as well as the lined pattern detail. I love the idea of the menswear-inspired blazer with super feminine details (the color & cut).

Band of Outsiders

Band of Outsiders decided not to follow the bright-color trend for this look, & it’s incredibly refreshing! With all the detailing put into this cut & design, there was no need to use a bright fabric and a nude neutral is a universally flattering hue for any skin tone making this look truly “Ready to Wear”.

Inspiration

23 Oct

Inspiration is an important word when it comes to personal style. While, for my personal closet, I tend to choose more classic pieces, I am always inspired by the wild looks that come prancing down runways & are seen in over-the-top photo shoots. As most of us do, I have three models who always seem to inspire me whether it be on the runway, walking down the street (thanks, paparazzi) or in a shoot:

Kate Moss

Arguably one of the most sought-after models of all time, Kate never ceases to put me in jaw-dropping awe.

Kate Moss

Between the beachy waves & next-to-no makeup, I adore the above picture for its most realistic portrayal of natural femininity.

Jessica Stam

From Victoria’s Secret to Christian Dior, Jessica Stam has graced the runways with her statuesque figure & perfect skin.

Jessica’s glossy pout, sleek pony & smoky eye are the definition of high-fashion.

Chanel Iman

Similarly to what I love about Kate, Chanel looks her best when she’s fresh-faced and natural, and she’s made a living out of it!

Chanel Iman

With just a swipe of eyeliner on her top lid, Chanel shows how the simplest touch of makeup can make all the difference.

My hope as the author & editor of this blog is to provide inspiration through fashion, beauty & decor to show that even the most outrageous trends can be used for personal street style with a little confidence & a lot of love.
