Slide Show

June 3, 2016

The pitter patter of little feet will be coming to an office or restaurant near you. No, we don’t mean someone is expecting a baby. We’re talking about slides and mules, those late 90’s throwbacks that make a rather annoying sound as our feet slap about when we walk.

This time around, there are lots of variations to the theme. From pancake flats to chunky block heels, there’s one thing to be sure of… they’re back!

Low heels and closed pointed toes make these mules almost seasonless:

Wide crossed straps, embellishments and chunky soles take “shower shoes” to the next level.

Chunky heels and peep toes in colored suede, denim or floral prints modernize the mule and are the perfect warm weather option that’s not too bare:

If last year was about the Birkenstock, this summer will be all about the designer Dr. Scholl:

Whatever shape you choose, it’s time to slide into summer!

The Bell Curve

April 20, 2016

With fashion, it seems the focus shifts from various erogenous zones as the seasons evolve. Recently, we have seen the bare midriff as the focal point du jour, with exposed shoulders following close behind for Spring. As the seasons change, we predict an emphasis on new sleeve shapes to step into the style spotlight.

All you need are a pair of jeans and a chic Chanel slingback when you have a dramatic sweater like this one!

Brandon Maxwell is certainly one to watch. You may have heard of him as the designer of Lady Gaga’s skirted white jumpsuit she wore to the Oscars. This blouse has all the same elements of what appears to be this newcomer’s signature style; clean sleek lines with lots of drama.

A Sprig of Spring

March 12, 2014

Oversized corsages showed up on the runway for Fall 2015, adding a retro element to coats and suits. Why wait for next year, when you can bring a bit of much needed spring into your wardrobe, while you impatiently anticipate the change of seasons?

Dries Van Noten added orchids to the shoulder of his not so basic black dress.

Fendi pinned a corsage on his fur shrug worn over a simple zip front coat.

Celine added a floral touch to contrast buttoned outerwear.

Biker Chic

March 20, 2013

Biker influences were all over the Fall 2013 runways this season. From takes on the classic Perfecto motorcycle jacket in black leather, to the loosely interpreted hybrids, it seems biker chic is a trend to watch.

Sacai was a much buzzed about collection during Paris fashion week. Designer Chitose Abe merged familiar elements with one another to create unique versions of fall favorites. The teal double-breasted princess coat with an inset leather front bearing classic motorcycle jacket details is a feminine and modern twist on the expected.

Consuelo Castiglioni took an austere approach at Marni this season, showing strict cuts and angular silhouettes. Her woolen coatdresses utilized the asymmetry and zipper details associated with the classic motorcycle jacket. Low slung belts and shiny boots completed the look.

Joseph Altuzarra layered a shrunken vinyl biker jacket over a trench coat, and worked the fabric into body con dresses for his eponymous collection. Both vinyl and leather were skillfully manipulated with other fabrics to create a young, sexy collection with lots of street cred.

Phillip Lim cited “girlfriends of bikers” as his inspiration for the season. His edgy collection was filled with motorcycle references, including zippers, asymmetry and channel quilting, often on leather. He softened and feminized the look, opting for softer colors and mixing it with more fluid fabrics.

Junya Watanabe took the classic Perfecto jacket on a journey, as he mixed it with plaids, tweeds and denim to create a collection of punk inspired clothing with a thrift shop vibe.

At Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld stepped away from the fur just long enough to craft a cobalt blue leather motorcycle jacket with a high-low hemline. Layered over a white dress with thigh high slits, and shown with contrasting hot pants and over-the-knee stockings, the jacket added an urban air of sophistication to the look.

Etro, the Italian house known for its rich paisley patterns and luxe fabrications, got on the biker bandwagon, showing long and lean leather pieces over plaid. The double layer effects and fur trim, added a sleek modern air to the collection.

Highly hyped designer Fausto Puglisi mixed two of the season’s biggest trends: biker and plaid, in his mixed media jacket. Paying homage to the upcoming Met Costume Institute’s show entitled “Punk: Chaos to Couture”, Puglisi managed to make the obvious look new and exciting. By combining his motorcycle details with tartan, as well as crystal and metal embellishments, he rebelled against the expected, creating his own style revolution.

Caramelized

October 18, 2012

What’s not to love about caramel? It’s rich and adds a luxurious texture to everything; including clothing.

For spring 2013, designers showed caramel colored leathers that as crave worthy as their namesake sweet.

Akris showed head to toe caramel leather.

Both Fendi and Billy Reid paired their leather back to crisp white shirts.

Burberry went pants free with their short leather trench style jacket in new proportions.

Luxury leather goods maker Hermes layered a leather vest and cotton trench over white shorts.

As you start to develop your fall wardrobe, think about adding a little caramel leather in clothing or accessories. It’s an investment that will take you through the entire year.
