ERDEM x H&M

How’s your week going? Our is great, Friday is just around the corner and not to mention official images from the H&M and Erdem Collaboration are finally here and we had to show you guys what this collaboration is all about. This collaboration was first announced back in July 2017, London-Based designer Erdem Moralioglu brings his romantic silhouettes and beautiful prints to the fast-fashion retailer on November 2, 2017.

The collection includes both men’s, and women’s clothing as well as some amazing accessories. Erdem is officially the latest brand to team up with H&M. This London-based designer Erdem Moralıoğlu is bringing his romantic aesthetic to the fast-fashion retailer with new women’s apparel and his first-ever menswear collection. The capsule will “reinterpret the design themes from some of his most celebrated collections,” according to a press release.

“I am so happy to collaborate with H&M, and to explore my work on a whole new scale, including a menswear collection which I have never done before. It’s also such a thrill to work with Baz Luhrmann, one of the most important storytellers of our time,” the designer said in a release. Erdem is the newest addition to the slew of brands tapped by H&M, following Kenzo in 2016, Balmain in 2015, and Alexander Wang in 2014. The collaborations for this project aren’t only fashion-based. H&M also poached renowned filmmaker Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby) to direct the campaign. The brand has plucked similar talent in the past last year’s ads were photographed by Jean-Paul Goude.

“For me, fashion is always about more than just clothing, it is a form of expression – a standalone art form,” Luhrmann said in a statement. Erdem x H&M will be premiere on November 2 at select H&M stores and online at hm.com.

Claudia Schiffer’s Stunning Debute

If you’re searching for a pair of investment shoes for fall, where better to look than a supermodel’s new collaboration with an iconic Italian brand? Claudia Schiffer has debuted a new collection of shoes designed with Aquazzura, and as you can imagine, the results are insanely stylish.

Our favorite shoes from the collaboration are the Cloudy Star Flats ($850), which are as pretty as it gets when it comes to flats. Thanks to the luxurious satin material, punchy blue color, and delicate embroidery, the flats are beyond beautiful—naturally, they immediately took the number one spot on our dream wish list for fall. Take a look!

Frankies Bikini’s Debute at Miami Swim Week

Miami Swim Week is the biggest swimwear fashion event in the world. This huge event just took place last week in Miami, with many designers waiting to show their new swimwear pieces. The event started on Thursday, July 20th and it went until Wednesday. Miami Swim Week brings together the biggest and the most popular brands as well as not so popular ones, hoping to make a huge statement. “Swim Week is the biggest platform for the swimwear industry in the U.S. It could be a chance to find the hottest new brand, or the chance to find a new distributor, a new contact, a press opportunity — it can be anything,” – says Cece Feinberg. She is the owner of the PR agency Cece Feinberg, that has been a part of the Miami Swim Week since 2004.

Over the weekend, Frankies Bikinis debuted their 2018 Resort Collection at SWIMMIAMI. In Florida, the showcase displayed various California-inspired, sultry swimwear on Saturday, July 22.

The collection, Golden State of Mind, included various colors, textures, and prints influenced from the West Coast. The color palette included hues of the ocean and sunsets with soft pinks and dark blues. The swimwear varied from one pieces and bikinis with ultra-flattering fabrics and various, edgy cuts. The show included models such as Josie Canseco, Ashley Moore, Kyra Santoro, Sofia Jamora and more to further encompass a sun-kissed, California essence. The overall collection was created by designer Francesa Aiello for an overall sporty, but feminine aesthetic.

“Like everything else in the world, I’m evolving,” said Aiello. “I’d like to think that my designs for this collection are who I am as a 22 year old woman–different, new and more mature than my last. It’s an elevated aesthetic for the Frankies Girl–effortless, edgy and universally fitting.”

Frankies Bikinis continues to show at Miami Swim Week with new designs, inspiration, and creative style.The stage was set-up with an ethereal vibe, including a bed in order to create a “slumber party” environment. The models were also in custom silk robes backstage in order to further support this theme. With the newest collection, Frankies Bikinis shows its growth as a brand since its establishment in 2012. Created out of necessity for the “perfect bikini” by Aiello, the designer moved forward to high-profile shows including Miami Swim Week in 2014. Since then, the young designer has continued to participate in the fashion case as the youngest to have ever shown at swim week.

Now with a full e-commerce site running, the brand continues to build. After the release of the brand’s 2018 Resort collection, the premium swimwear will be through the brand’s website: frankiesbikinis.com. Prices range approximately from 75 to 225 dollars, according to the site.

What was your favorite designer from swim week?

THE CFDA AWARDS

The CFDA Awards are arguably the biggest night in the fashion world. They rival events like the Met Gala and its counterpart across the pond, the British Awards, but tonight’s event certainly holds a special place for anyone who respects the work of so many domestic and international designers who’ve been honored over the past 30-plus years. All this is to say, naturally, the red carpet is impressive. Of course, since the event is so huge, and so stylish. We’ve narrowed down our favorite looks that lit up the Hammerstein Ballroom tonight. Trust us: These are the looks everyone will be talking about in the morning (probably until next year’s awards, too).

DIANA KRUGER

EVA CHEN

Wearing: Versace Summer Collection 

ELSA HOSK

Wearing: Philopsphy dress and Valentino shoes.

Not only did we want to share our favorite looks of the night, we also wanted to share the winners of the night. And while it might technically seem impossible to compare Marc Jacobs, Raf Simons, and Joseph Altuzarra, a few designers did come out on top this evening—in fact, one designer more so than anyone else. See the complete list of winners below.

Receiving an honor from the Council of Fashion Designers of America is one of the highest recognition’s that someone within the fashion industry can claim. But choosing one per category for the 2017 awards had to have been a very, very difficult decision. Last month the CFDA announced its official list of nominated artists, filled with both industry vets like Marc Jacobs and newcomers but only to the United States such as Raf Simons, for his short but highly impressive work at Calvin Klein. Also among the nominations are the potential recipients of the Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent that celebrates so many of the talented labels we can’t stop talking about, including Off-White, Monse, and Brock Collection.

Of course, along with the annual awards, the CFDA will also honor many of the women and men who make positive change and set the bar high for what they do. This year specially, three individuals will be recognized for their work in the Women’s March, each having used her voice and talents in a different way: Cecile Richards, Gloria Steinem, and Janelle Monáe. And in the most bittersweet moment tonight, the CFDA announced that Franca Sozzani, the late editor in chief of Vogue Italia who passed away in December, will posthumously receive the Fashion Icon Award.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has a Sweet Surprise this Summer

We are so excited that the end of the semester is coming near, and that summer is right around the corner. So since summer has been on our mind, we obviously have been thinking about what to wear to our beach day activities, and late night bbq get together’s. As we were researching some of our favorite bloggers, stylists, and designers for some summer inspiration.. we came across an unexpected candidate who typically is not on our designer radar. Not a stylist, not a blogger, but supermodel Naomi Campbell. You will not believe the summer innovation she has brought to the table this season and designer by herself. So let’s get into it, as summer begins and the weather gets warmer, you might want to break out a pair of flip-flops. The shoe style is a popular and easygoing choice, but thanks to supermodel Naomi Campbell, it’s been given a major update. Campbell designed an insane pair of hybrid thong-style sandal heels, and we’re not 100% sure we could walk in them. The black shoes have a pencil-thin high heel and daunting platforms fit for a high-heel pro. While some might be intimidated by the shoes, they were made for a philanthropic cause worth supporting. Campbell designed the shoes with Havaianas for Women for Women International, an organization that helps female survivors of war rebuild their lives. Even if you won’t wear the pair yourself, you’ve got to give Campbell props for using her supermodel status for good. While there’s no word yet on where you can buy Naomi Campbell’s take on flip-flops, we provided an image of the extravagant sandal-heel hybrid for you below, or check out the supermodels Instagram page for deets.

So what do you guys think? We want to hear some serious feedback on these crazy shoes.

Let us hear your thoughts below.

The Perfect Millennial Brand & Trend Pair

When Joyce Azria created her new brand, Avec Les Filles, she knew exactly the type of customer she wanted to cater to: the millennial. Joyce stated in a recent interview, “As a millennial, I really felt like no brand understood the way I shop and no brand addressed who I was as a customer,” And I’m sure every millennial including myself can agree with this statement, as such an individualistic generation begins to beautifully maneuver its way into the fashion industry. Joyce wanted to take an opportunity and show what trends she really thinks millennials love.

So what exactly are we loving right now? When asked Azria about the generation’s current favorite trend, she pointed to a playful look that’s perfectly in keeping with the statement sleeve trend of 2017: ruffles. Joyce stated, “This spring, I would say ruffled tops are a huge trend,” and she hit the nail right on with ruffle long-sleeve blouses, woven tops, and button-down shirts. Of course, Avec Les Filles has the perfect piece to test-drive the trend: the Ruffled Sleeve Top, which rings in at a reasonable $58, and also perfect match for the millennial budget.

Speaking of perfect prices, Azria was very strategic when it came to setting price points for different parts of her brand, exceptionally well for the millennials. Joyce stated,  “The clothing items are all at an entry price point of under $100, but the line does stretch up to $595 in the apparel collection. So it’s a high-low mix that’s really in line with the millennial girl and how she dresses.” We are obsessed with Joyce’s specific attention to detail with her brand’s target market and strategic pricing, providing what a true millennial young adult wants, specification. Its what our generation is all about, and on top of the magnificent individualistic emphasis on Avec Les Filles , have you seen these ruffle pieces? They are perfect for any #ootd and #ootn. We are truly obsessed.

Avec Les Filles Ruffled Sleeve Top ($58) This top is one of our favorites and fits in perfectly with the statement sleeve trend.

Aves Les Filles Elbow Sleeve Lace Top ($68) This sheer lace top is the perfect for parties and those outfits of the night, its form fitting and completely in the budget.

Avec Les Filles Layering Tee ($38) You can never own too many striped shirts, and this tee is perfect for layering a cute outfit when you’re going a million places in the day.

Avec Les Filles Jersey Wrap Dress ($68) Wrap dresses are insanely flattering, and go flawlessly with a edgy cut leather jacket.

Avec les Filles Dropped Lapel Gilet ($98) You’ll want to wear this to work every single day, and it literally goes with anything.

We hope you will enjoy Joyce Artzia and Avec Les Filles as much as we do, I guess it’s a millennial thing! Let us know your favorite pieces in the comment below.

The Oscar’s After-Party Attire

But when it comes time to go home with the gold, Hollywood heads to the biggest after-parties of the year.

Diane Kruger wore a metallic Alexandre Vaulthier mini dress with a daring wrap construction. Rooney Mara was radiant in an airy ruffled and pleated chiffon number in a romantic blush tone that was none other than H&M. Emily Ratajkowski’s feather train stunned.

The Grammy’s, Our Favorite Red Carpet Attire

While nearly every red carpet event kills us with excitement, not just excitement but fashionista excitment, the Grammy Awards hold a special and particularly excited spot in our award show season coverage and inner fashionista. In comparison to other red carpets, the Grammy’s allow a place where celebrities show up in daring gowns and test the waters when it comes to dramatic arrivals and jaw-dropping looks. Who could forget Taylor Swift’s bold tow-piece from last year or Lady Gaga’s tribute to Dave Bowie? It’s the star-studded event that leaves everyone talking, and this year’s red carpet was no exception, not just for the amazing red carpet attire we saw this year, but also for the surprises, astonishing performances, tear jerking moments on stage, and of course shocking attendees.

We thought we would share with you guys are absolutely favorite looks from the red carpet, and without a doubt the most fierce.

Bad Girl Ri Ri, possibly taking on that two-piece inspired look from Taylor last year? We love it. Not only can the beautiful star rock anything fashionable, she can do it with a bad girl attitude. Rihanna rocked the red carpet with a custom Armani gown, Chopard jewelry, and Roger Vivier clutch.

Adele, not only does Adele hook us emotionally with her elegant artistic albums, she does it also with her red carpet looks. Adele won 5 grammy’s and took on the stage with her smashing Givenchy dress.

She may not be the Queen herself, but royal blood runs in the family. Solange Knowles killed the red carpet last night with her Golden Asymmetrical Ruffle Down Gucci gown.

Jennifer Lopez is a legend, and this outfit is going down as one of our favorites from her! Showing off her killer body with cuts in all of the right places, we have never seen JLo look this fierce in her Ralph & Russo dress and darling Christian Louboutin heels.

Does it get anymore beautiful than this? Not only is Chrissy Teigen the best person in the world, she is also the sexiest in this Roberto Cavalli gown! Watch out Anastasia, Chrissy is some serious competition for those Fifty Shades of Gray. To top of her sexual dress, Chrissy accented with the one and only Jimmy Choo clutch and Coomi jewelry.

Watch out for this lady in red, Carrie Underwood killed her red carpet appearance with this bedazzled red gown, Nigaam earrings, and  Jimmy Choo heels.

Laverne Cox as always looking stunning on the red carpet with her leather a-line Bryan Hearns dress and diva smoky make up.

Lady Gaga, as we recently just saw her one-of-a-kind outfit at the Super Bowl, we once again were shocked by her fashion appearance on the red carpet. Stiletto thigh high boots, leather, studs, spikes, and chains. This dominatrix killed it on the red carpet.

Heidi Klum showing off those legs and adding some metallic for fun, perfectly combined with her Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Demi Lovato was probably one of our most favorite appearances on the red carpet, she looked so elegant in her Julien Macdonald gown,David Yurman jewelry, and  Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

And last but very not least, Katy Perry looked absolutely stunning in her Tom Ford dress and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

What were your favorite looks from the Grammy’s? Let us know! and we hope you enjoyed our favorites. Until next year.

The Most Legendary Super Bowl Half Time Outfits Ever

Whether you’re a big sports fan or not, we’re willing to bet a fair amount of you will be tuning in on Sunday to watch the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots duke it out for the title of Super Bowl champions. Whether for you it’s the sports, the hilarious commercials, or the food and company that comes with a good party, we know without a doubt which part of this sporting event is our favorite part… the halftime show of course.

This year’s star will be none other than, Lady Gaga. If her career so far is any indication, the only thing that’s going to be bigger than her performance is her wardrobe. While we can only speculate on what she might wear, in honor of the upcoming event, we thought you guys would want to take a look back at some of the best halftime show ensembles over the years, from Gwen Stefani’s No Doubt days to Beyoncé’s famous Formation performance last year! We know you fashionista’s minds are turning waiting to see what the notorious Gaga is going to be wrapped up in this year, but only us fashionista’s can appreciate and bask over these past Super Bowl attires!

MICHAEL JACKSON, 1993

We have to start with the King of Pop himself and wardrobe legend.. Michael Jackson. Not only is his Military style jacket a statement piece, but we get to see other celeb’s rock MJ’s look at future Super Bowls. Asymmetrical designs, Aviator shades, and Golden embellishments to make the King of Pop’s 1993 half time show one for the books.

DIANA ROSS, 1996

One of the most influential American singers of her time, and absolute fashion diva, Diana Ross. It doesn’t get more Supreme than this outfit, a shape perfect magenta jumpsuit, studded with perfect rhinestone embellishments, and a golden quarter sleeve kimono to top it off. If this outfit doesn’t say Supreme or Super Bowl, we don’t know what does.

GWEN STEFANI, 2003

Gwen Stefani, our favorite 90’s tomboy. Not only can Gwen hang with the boys, her style is no doubt iconic, literally. Stefani has been known for her creative street style looks from her many performances, all the way to the red carpet. However, when it comes to the super bowl we had to mark Gwen’s 2003 half time show as one for the books. From her checkered strapped jump pants, studded belt, and glittered halter with vibrant fireman red to her killer abs! Gwen knocked this look out of the park, and it deserves a spot on our favorite Super Bowl style list.

MADONNA, 2012

Not only is Madonna notorious for her over-the-top and extravagant outfits on stage, she also is a living legend of performances. Madonna’s 2012 Super Bowl half time show was an absolute treat to every 80’s fan out there. What we really loved though was her cheerleader styled ensemble, golden pom poms, and sexy thigh high boots to match Madonna’s iconic sex appeal.

KATY PERRY, 2015

We love Katy Perry for her girl power attitude, but we love her just as much for her wacky, and out-of-this-planet wardrobe. Katy Perry’s enthusiasm in her performances makes her fans go wild and it doesn’t get more wild than the fans at the Super Bowl. Perry’s 2015 half time show wardrobe was absolutely stunning, not only did it match her original style, it also was themed perfectly with her popular song “California Gurls” representing lollipops, glitter, and the California sun.

BEYONCE, 2016

Didn’t we say that we would be seeing Michael Jackson’s statement military jacket again? Well here it is, on the one and only Queen B herself. Last years Super Bowl half time show not only caught attention for Beyonce’s social activist voice but also for her outfit of choice. Copying Michael Jackson’s 1993 military statement jacket, Beyonce took a more moderate approach with her notorious body suit. The star also spruced things up a bit with her sexy fish net style tights and black strapped guarder.

We can not wait to see what Lady Gaga has in store for us this year at Super Bowl 2017, and we are absolutely excited for not only her performance but of course her wardrobe. We hope these were some of your favorite looks from past Super Bowl’s and we would love to hear what you think about these iconic performances. Let us know in the comments below! We hope everyone has a safe and fantastic time this Sunday!
