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!

The Oscar’s After-Party Attire

We have been so busy! So many beautiful moments being captured lately from all spectrum’s of the universe. From the political moments of women that are beginning to take flight all over the United States, to Gigi and Bella Hadid’s up and coming photography professional, to Paris Fashion Week! We have been gathering some seriously great information for our Find Fashion Fans. Today, we wanted to start with the Oscar’s since we didn’t get to comment on our favorite after-party attire from the night.

The Oscar’s, a night of the stars who gathered at the 89th annual Academy Awards to celebrate the best in film. But when it comes time to go home with the gold, Hollywood heads to the biggest after-parties of the year. While the Oscars sees some of the most gorgeous gowns on the red carpet, the after-parties host a lineup of more playful looks—especially the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where some of our favorite leading ladies stepped out in remarkable styles.

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. Wearing everything from trumpet silhouettes to ball gowns, every actress below who walked the party’s green-and-white carpet was a head-turner. We obviously had to share these astonishing looks from our favorite’s in film!

Take a peak, and let us know what you think.

Street Style Savvy

Lately, we have had our heads wrapped around a lot of designers, couture dresses, and astonishing fashion weeks from New York to Paris. So we wanted to take a step back and refocus our attention on what we love the most & inspired us to find fashion! Some serious street style. One person who inspires our street style attention is a huge influence in the industry. It doesn’t mater if she’s on the Balmain runway or simply running errands around town with her gorgeous family.

Alessandra Ambrosio will always catch your eye. The Brazilian model and well known Victoria’s Secret Angel who recently stunned on the red carpet in a on-of-a-kind J Mendel gown, continously brings her fashion A game, but her killer street style is one we had to shine the light on. From trendy 70’s flared out jeans, to spring-redy white pants, sunglasses, and bright colors. We wanted to show off and admire some of Alessandra’s best out-and-about looks this year!

Miu Miu Autumn/Winter Ready-To-Wear 2016/17

As we are always looking forward in the Fashion World, We have been absolutely excited for Miu Miu’s 2016-17 Ready-to-Wear Collection for Autumn/Winter. However, we were not expecting it to be THIS GOOD! Take a look at Miu Miu’s astonishing look’s and a little commentary from Sarah Harris to really put this collection into perspective for you.

Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.56.39 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.56.27 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.55.31 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.56.16 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.56.05 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-21 at 11.55.53 AM

If there is a show that sums up the spring/summer and autumn/winter debate – specifically, what season to show when, and exactly when it should be available to buy – then Miu Miu this afternoon was it. A collision of every season jumbled into one collection, the clothes echoed the principle that it’s always summer somewhere in the world – no bad thing. The show itself began with a series of cotton poplin shirting, light and summery with straps falling off shoulders to a soundtrack of Marvin Gaye’s I Heard It Through the Grapevine. There were white bloomers and blue shirts, tails gathered into pillowy puffballs. Variations on the denim jacket came next, some embroidered with badges, others with white guipure lace collars partnered up with denim maxi skirts. Then came the golden fox-fur coats and a series of dark damask florals, a heavyweight fabric that seemed more akin to upholstering a sofa. It was reworked in duchess-style maxi skirts – often with hemlines hoiked up with buttoned straps, and grand coats cinched with wide velvet belts. Also on the heavier side were flocked overcoats, waxed hunting jackets and wool breeches and shooting jackets. The latter popped up at Prada’s hit show in Milan last week. There were other parallels, too, such as the selection of argyle knits which, here, were styled with crisp white handkerchiefs popping out of breast pockets. After a hiatus, Katie Grand is back on board at Miu Miu and it was evident also in the casting; from Gigi Hadid to Adriana Lima, Lara Stone, Irina Shayk, and even an appearance made by Emily Ratajkowski. All served up with sweet pearl necklaces and jewelled heels with bows. This was a show with oomph. (Sarah Harris)

We will definitely be wearing our Calvin’s this fall. The perfect blend of trench’s, high, med, and low any of these bay boys will do. Oversized bell’s in neutral grays, crisp white, and nude. Who knew a trench coat would match so perfectly with a fitted pair of bell bottoms. Leathers and patterned texture for the most unique of coats we have seen yet. Calvin, you did it again.

BURBERRY’S pre-fall fashion 2016 collection could not represent their brand more flawlessly. Elegant and classy, this collection shines the Burberry identity.

Tis’ the Season for Style

Happy December! It’s that time of the year again, and were as excited as ever! The holidays are here, and so are the oh-so-good holiday styles. From ruby red to crystal whites, this season were going to give you some of the best looks to wear at your holiday party this year!

WHITE NOW

Romanticized and timeless, a white dress is the look this season. I mean model and actress Elisa Sednaoui should be enough for you to know its a MUST. You can easily balance an embroidered version with a striking noir-accented accessory.

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 8.20.31 AM

SHINE BRIGHT

The only real way you know its the holiday season is sparkling sequins. Follow Dree Hemingway’s lead and go for a dress in single treatment color or really make a statement in a rainbow-hued design like Sonia Rykiel’s dress. Either way sparkling sequins is fabulous for this time of year just like your Christmas shopping.

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 8.26.38 AM

RUBY RED BABY

Now, in order for you to be the Chanel of the season you must have ruby red jewels. These are essential for an holiday outfit. Update your jewelry collection with traditional blood-red rubies. A modern style ring or a delicate pair of studs look both fresh and glamorous.

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 8.29.07 AM

KEEP IT CLASSIC, BEAUTY

Get noticed with a princess worthy trifecta or hair and make-up touches. Boldly colored lips, look-at-me lashes, and of course a bejeweled headband are the perfect combination to obtain a crowning beauty moment.

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 8.31.22 AM

PARTY PERFECTION

For the most subdues occasions, a rich burgundy dress in devorè or textured lace is the picture of chic. Go glam like editorial and art connoisseur Dasha Zhukova and wear yours with metallic platforms and a sleek clutch. Vintage-y gold jewelry leads an old-world touch as well.

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 8.34.53 AM

RAZZLE DAZZEL

Bold jewels were the accessory du jour on the runways and make for the ultimate evening companions.

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 8.36.45 AM

STYLE STAR: LILY ALDRIDGE

The Nashville based model and mom is known as much for her inspired red-carpet classics as for her elegant, rock-inspired looks. Here, she shares her holiday evening style with a rock-n-roll inspired sparkling dress, as well as a Christmas pink chic gown for the weekend party.

4 Designers Demanding the Runway

As fashion week is coming to a close, we have seen some amazing designs from well-known designers. We also have seen some amazing collections from some not so well-known designers, which is why we wanted to share with you four designers to watch out for! These up and coming designers are climbing to the top of the industry ever so quickly and are doing it with style. Take a look at these extraordinary collections from some awesome designers.

MARCO DE VINCENZO

Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 11.20.15 AM Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 11.20.26 AM Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 11.21.21 AM

In addition to running his own label, which shows during Fashion week in Milan, de Vincenzo assists with accessories for Fendi, a job he says has deepened his love affair with leather and fur. One of the handful of young designers out of Italy to gain serious traction in the past few years, he is also among the country’s biggest rising stars. Vincenzo’s elegant minimalism is opulent fabrics and easy-to-wear neutrals. His current inspiration is Marble, particularly from his hometown, Rome. Stone is often a theme in da Vincenzo’s collections; his Spring 2012 line was influenced by the Ionic columns of ancient Olympia.

MSGM

Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 11.32.46 AM Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 11.32.32 AM Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 11.31.15 AM

Massimo Giorgetti is known for his exuberant prints and youthful, on-trend look. He channels his varied interests into the design process, creating clothes born of a mash-up of contemporary art and indie music considering he used be a DJ. MSGM is a patriotic endeavor as well: Giorgetti’s line is based in the designer’s native Italy-Milan, to be precise and its all Italian-made. MSGM’s aesthetic consists of kaleidoscopic florals and of-the-moment styling such as spontaneous orange furs!

LUBLU KIRA PLASTININA

Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 11.41.26 AM Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 11.40.26 AM Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 11.41.33 AM

You may recognize this name as the Russian beauty designed for her own label from the time she was fourteen until she turned her attention to the more grown-up Lublu Kira Plastinina. The brand has been around since 2008, but it only recently became a crossover hit in the States, attracting fashionable fans like Taylor Tomasi Hill. Plastinina’s aesthetic is girly with wild prints, knee-length dresses and skirts. Her current inspiration is late 60’s and early 70’s; bright colors for fall like orange and corals.

ROSIE ASSOULIN

Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 12.06.42 PM Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 12.06.01 PM Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 12.05.47 PM

She’s done internships at Oscar de la Renta, Lanvin, Adam Lippes, and Brian Reyes. Now after launching a namesake line for Resort 2014, Assoulin is going to need some interns of her own; The New York designer’s collection was one of the most buzzed-about outings of the season. Assoulin’s aesthetic resembles clean lines and architectural silhouettes; clever plays on volume; modern and ladylike. Her current inspiration is 1940’s and 50’s frocks; traditional dress of Moroccan and Kazakh men.

 

Paris Fashion Week Fav

Although, I must say some of the designers on the runway this year displayed absolutely amazing pieces… Saint Laurent was the Paris Fashion Week Fav!

SAINT LAURENT

Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 7.26.07 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-03 at 7.32.11 PM

The lights went on and the stage went up, and Hedi Slimane put on yet another raucous, rocking collection, titled “Pretty Boy.” It was pure punk, edgy,  and we can’t wait for the Hedi haters and lovers to battle over this one. The runway was classic to what Paris Fashion Week is all about, Glamour and the Pretty Boy theme complimented this classic catwalk perfectly. He’s been accused of a lot of “Same-y” styles season to season, but this season none of these accusations would stand a chance. The clothes and the vibes change. Slimane just likes it skinny, short, and a little dirty whether its 80’s kids, 70’s disco, or this seasons edgy punk. Saint Laurent is well-known and respected for its thorough characteristics in black and also a point of reference for many other designers. Slimane should be applauding himself for this seasons “Pretty Boy” Punk Collection.

Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 7.35.17 PM

Slimane’s girl’s displayed a personality of party and were dressed to kill in fit-flare party dresses that ran the from polka-dotted numbers with tulle underskirts for an extra bounce to skintight animal prinkt minis barely hiding under furs in electric hues. The girls fishnets were torn and eye make up caked on to complete the ready-to-go party girl vibe.

Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 7.38.53 PMScreen Shot 2015-10-03 at 7.42.50 PM

But, these were not even our favorite styles of the collection. Yep, it gets better! For fall there were pretty girls dressed as boys in sinfully skinny cropped pants, white shirts, suspenders and slim ties- so good. To keep the pretty with the boy, Slimane added a hot fiery red lip. The double-breasted pea coats, done in leather and wool made the absolute perfect finish to this edgy pretty boy. These were mixed in with the party crew to balance sass with swag.

Slimane also showed us that he likes it rough, with zippers that unzip across a breast or way up the thigh. Clean up the makeup and men the tights and you’ve got some seriously sexy crafted clothes that sizzle with femme appeal, pretty boy or not. This is a context element. Take all of the attitude and naughty styling away and a leopard cape is opera-worthy, a stapless gown with chiffon peaks sticking straight is red carpet ready, and a binding leather mini unzipping itself to reveal contrasting fabrics beneath looks ready for a chic, exclusive after party.

The context is Slimane displayed was so simple, but if you analyze the styles and take away certain aspects the theme was crafted intelligently and intentionally. The “Pretty Boy” punk theme knocked Saint Laurent right out of the park. It was without a doubt one of our Paris Favs!

 

Our Fav’s from Marc Jacobs NYFW

Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 10.28.26 AMScreen Shot 2015-10-02 at 10.29.01 AMScreen Shot 2015-10-02 at 10.52.31 AM

For showing the audience what a Fashion Show is truly about, the inspiring Marc Jacobs stood out with his plush pink shag carpet that took up the entire runway. If this pop of pink wasn’t enough for an entrance, Jacobs also had Beats by Dre Headphones plugged into the seats. As each model walked down the runway, each guest heard random everyday sounds as well as the models walking on different textures, with a thoroughly explanation of what was going on during the catwalks. The clothes were noted for their fun and theatrical styles with louche military. A complete opposite of the 50 & 60’s pink shag to make a perfect balance on the runway.

Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 10.48.53 AM Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 10.57.43 AM

Marc Jacobs also displayed some amazing color palettes at this year’s NYFW. Jacobs showed diversity from dove gray, nudes, camel tones, rich blues, and dark forest military greens. He showed over 50 ways to wear a field jacket though a number of different combinations such as: swing dresses, cinched satin minis, ball-beaded shirt dresses, day-time party dresses, pajama pants, tank dresses, and evening columns with peek-a-boo slits as well as cropped tops with long, silk skirts.

Not to mention just how AMAZING these field jackets actual looked. The jackets were designed in extra extra large proportions and with silk pockets. Jacobs carried the silk pocket inspiration to cute little sleeveless mini-dresses worn with cross-body bags, and magenta backpacks in silk nylon.

Marc Jacobs displayed modern, feminine utility, and while the stage and the models ‘ spare, homogenous beauty look. Every model had black, shaggy, and edgy bobs as well as ZERO make up! These beauty look’s suggest something severe, the clothes were very wearable. And that’s a pretty great way to end the New York season.

What was your favorite designer from NYFW?
