With fall just around the corner, it's time to start thinking boots vs sandals. Here is my pick from the bootie roundup on Mondette. These sky high suede wedge booties by Giuseppe Zanotii may not be made for walking far, but earn my kudos for their seriously cool factor. To see more from Mondette, click here.
Wildfox Couture says "Vive La France," and this week I say "Viva Las Vegas!" The fashion industry is headed to Vegas for the trade show season. The Project Global Trade Show, Capsule, MAGIC Marketplace, ENK Vegas and Pooltradeshow are a few of the key stops on my list. I'll be headed there today in search of new designers and all the hot new looks for Spring 2011. I'm loving Wildfox's kitschy Marie Antoinette inspired-theme with models decked out in lingerie and red hot lips. Stay tuned for more from the shows!!!
Here is my latest pick for Stanton James weekly feature entitled "The Look." Every Monday fashion editors, stylists, artists and designers give their advice on how to get the look of the moment. I am the Fashion Editor for Apparel News and it's an honor to be in the company of these stylish fashionistas.
The style gurus include Angela Fink, Resident Stylist for Who What Wear, Lauren Levinson, Fashion Editor at Timeout NY; Dirk Mai, Fashion Photographer; Lauren D, Fashion Editor at Vice Mag, Rebecca, U.S. Fashion Editor of Sportswear International; and Yotam Solomon, Designer.
This week I chose to feature a lace look worn by the ever stylish Anna Dello Russo as featured on Garance Doré. It's no secret lace and lingerie are hotter than hot for summer and this is one of my favorite interpretations of the trend. To read how to be "Lovely in Lace" check The Look and shop it on StantonJames.com. Be sure to stay tuned each week for more from Stanton James' style gurus!
Designers are going on "Safari." Whether trekking through the desert or glamping in a yurt, designers channel exotic safari-inspired looks for Spring 2011. Cargo jackets, utility vests, harem pants, animal prints and plenty of khaki are key looks for the season. Here is a shot from my recent "Safari" shoot for Apparel News. I'm loving this slouchy boyfriend blouse by Costa Blanca and hot pant from Thatcher by Elise Thatcher. And Rock & Republic's fierce over-the-knee lace-up boots are now on my "Must Have" list. To see the full shoot that includes brands such as Ever, Fremont, ISM Mode, Them Atelier, Skingraft, Caulfield Preparatory and more, click here.
