Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2010

Leighton Meester and Freida Pinto looked lovely entering the Louis Vuitton Pret a Porter runway show during Paris Fashion Week. With the exception of Leighton’s calf-high socks, both looked great from head to toe. They toted new LV bags – Leighton carried a black suede duffel; and we loved Freida’s pink Louis bucket bag in particular. Though as for the show itself, well, we didn’t ...

Bags on the runway at Valentino Spring/Summer 2010

New Valentino duo, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, took a different direction for Spring, straying away from the house’s vibrant color palette and replacing it with hues of nude, gray, rose, lavender, and gold. While we weren’t a huge fan of the washed out color palette, the bags were a hit. Brocades, pailettes, antique laces, large petaled florals and feathers came together ...

Rihanna j’adores Chanel

You know it wouldn’t be a normal fashion week without several Rihanna sightings. She hit up the Chanel show draped in Chanel from head to (almost) toe – sunglasses, bustier, blue tweed skirt, multi-chain necklace and a velvet bag with sequins? Can’t say it was our favorite Rihanna look but at least she tried to represent for Chanel. Supermodel Claudia Schiffer also took in the show, ...

Bags on the runway at Bottega Veneta – Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010

Bottega Veneta debuted its Spring/Summer 2010 collection in Milan and the ready-to-wear pieces consisted of lots of simple neutrals. But the bags, oh the bags! Most consisted of yellow tones, from Bottega’s traditional woven totes, to yellow tie dye and a few reptile skin bags. We can’t wait for the pieces to be sold in stores soon! D. Venturelli/Wireimage  Read More →

Haute Off the Runway: Victorya Hong

Latest Project Runway cast-off Victorya Hong held her own runway show last night in New York’s Altman Building. Her Fall 2008 Na Be collection consisted of simple separates, a departure from her slightly edgy looks on the show. Such basic pieces was a bit risky for her first major fashion week showing but her brilliant construction saved the day. Silhouettes were perfectly tailored and done ...

Haute Off the Runway: Baby Phat

Baby Phat channeled 1940’s flappers, mixed them with 90’s B-Girls and gave us their Fall ’08 collection. Kimora Lee Simmons’ runway shows never cease to dazzle and amaze with her bold interpretations of the past and over-the-top visualizations of the present. Simmons’ 2008 flappers wear feathers in place of fringe, fitted minidresses with cargo pockets in place of ruffled ...

Haute Off the Runway: BCBG Max Azria

The BCBG Max Azria show was everything you’ve come to expect from the designer. Silky cocktail dresses, ultra-feminine tailored suits and ethereal chiffon fabrics were present in full force. Color palettes consisted of muted neutral tones like cream, taupe, and rose, with a few unexpected punches of colors like gold, red and blue. Ultra-feminine styling and details were incorporated into each ...

Haute Off the Runway: Valentino’s Spring 2008 Collection

When you go out, you should go out with a bang! Valentino’s last hurrah was the ultimate in haute Spring fashion. Valentino the trendsetter took us to the candy shop with a collection chock full of candied colors. This Spring, expect to see lots of pastel colors mixed with brights – cotton candy pinks and blues, canary yellows, varying shades of purple (the current ‘It’ color), ...

Haute Off the Runway – Fendi’s Frocks and Fug Bags

Fendi’s Spring 2008 show offered another collection of gag-worthy bags (and not in a good way). Only one style was featured on the runway – an oversized envelope clutch in various shades, materials, and prints. The bags and double F logos were covered in whipstitching and looked bulky and busy, to say the least. They did nothing to complement the collection, which was a combination of ...

Haute Off the Runway – Olga Kapustina

Indie designer Olga Kapustina transformed swimwear into ready-to-wear with her Spring 2008 collection. Pieces consisted of solid bright color blocks, and silhouettes were bathing-suit inspired, with bandeau-style tops, form fitting bodices, and full skirts reminiscent of bikini bottom skirts. Models wore matching fabrics on their head, to resemble swim caps. Check out more of the collection here  Read More →

Haute Off the Runway: Cynthia Steffe

Cynthia Steffe’s Spring ’08 collection was a ready-to-wear dream – full of tons of pieces that could easily be worn off the runway as well as on. The collection featured bright spring colors and crisp neutrals mixed with the mod-style color blocks and prints. Solid pieces were constructed in eye-popping colors that are very versatile and beautiful for spring. 60’s-inspired ...

Haute off the Runway – Reem Acra

Fashion Week is quickly coming to a close but I’ve been attending tons of shows and am hastily writing to bring you updates on what’s haute for Spring 2008! Acra’s ultra-feminine frocks were glossed up with bright colors and shiny fabrics. Her Spring collection primarily consisted of dresses and separates, in hues of canary yellow, emerald green, and bright purple. Eye-catching color ...

Celeb Spotting – Naomi Campbell with Hermes ‘Lindy’

(Click pic for larger) The world’s most hated infamous supermodel was spotted toting a haute orange Hermes ‘Lindy’. You may or may not like Naomi, but you have to admit she does have a pretty good sense of style. Well, in handbags anyway. The ‘Lindy’ is haute off the Spring 2007 runway, and it’s one of the more affordable (cough, cough) Hermes handbags, with unusually ...

Haute Off The Runway: Evisu

The designer denim brand stuck to hues of indigo, red and black for its Fall 2007 collection. Dark denim was paired up with navy taffeta resulting in a dressy urban look. Pieces consisted of pleated skirts, over-embellished collars, and funnel sleeves. I like that the collection was highly wearable, unlike the couture collections that never make it to your closet. Any of these pieces could be worn ...
