Send Up a Flare

October 8, 2014

Step away from those skinnies. There is a new silhouette in town, and it’s very flattering.

The recent runways were rife with 70’s references, and designers were inspired by the era creating homages to haute hippies and establishment types alike.

Flare legged silhouettes popped up across continents, elongating legs in a way those rolled to the ankle skinnies never could.

Derek Lam mixed his sleek khakis with a soft lilac leather jacket:

Paul and Joe cut their flares in a whimsical print for a sharply tailored take on the suit:

Acne made the look edgy, with a dare to bare it all vest over flared pants:

Denim flares were seen outside the show venues at Paris Fashion Week:

New York Fashion Week Wrap-Up

February 21, 2012

New York Fashion Weekhas come to a close, with more than 280 designers showing their collections for  Fall 2012-13  over the course of 9 days. While it was somewhat of a conservative season, there were overarching trends that emerged. Here are a few of the “must haves,” New York style:

  1. Burgundy was the #1 color shown by many designers. It is a deep warm red that plays well off of all the black and white shown. Also look for rich blues, and emerald green as runners up.
  2. Chunky Sweaters were abundant, whether mixed with something soft and ethereal, or back to clean leather bottoms.
  3. Leather sportswear cropped up virtually everywhere, in simple easy cut pants, lean pencil skirts and tops, dresses or jackets of all kinds. A great fitting leather bottom is a must have for the season.
  4. Military madness is sweeping the catwalks again, and the military inspired jacket or coat is a key piece.
  5. Menswear influences, through classic fabrics and new takes on haberdashery styling permeated the runways.  Mix it up, with new proportions and items.
  6. Metallic fabrics, whether in gold or jewel toned colors added an unexpected twist to the looks. Shine in general, through finishes and technical aspects to fabrics are still important.
  7. Fur is still gaining momentum with everything from shaggy outerwear, to handbags and even a raccoon tail as an accessory being prominent across designers.
  8. Black is the new black, and head to toe winter white was a showstopper.
  9. Flower power continues into fall, where the spring trend morphs onto leather, soft fabrics and jacquards.

10. Blanket stripes and patched fabrics add a cozy outdoorsy feel to fashion. 11. Below the knee looks, from skirts to an influx of cropped trousers gave a new proportion to the season.

12. Peplums made a comeback for spring, and are continuing to rule the runways in modern iterations of the vintage silhouette. Some of these items may be sitting in your closet, waiting for a renaissance. Try putting them together in new and exciting ways, and give your current wardrobe an instant upgrade!

Three’s a Crowd

March 3, 2011

Everyone seems to be an expert these days, and the fashion world seems rife with reality stars and actresses passing themselves off as designers.  It’s only natural that crowd sourcing would be the next step in the process.

Renowned designer Derek Lam, in collaboration with eBay has done just that. Lam recently showed his debut collection of lower priced dresses for Derek Lam + eBay, during New York Fashion week.  The 16 dresses were presented at Lincoln Center in a room with computers where the guests could vote on their favorite designs. The company’s website also offered the public a chance to weigh in.

The top 5 styles were selected to be produced and will be sold on eBay’s site starting May 10.

The dresses range from $175-$295 and range in sizes 0-16.
