  • Chloe Pre-Fall 2012- The bar is set

    Chloe Pre-Fall 2012

    There’s no secret that we are fans of Chloe at FoS. Under the new creative direction of Clare Waight Keller, the directional message from  a go-to label continues to shine. The reason: Chloe continually delivers wearable, uber stylish clothes that are flattering on a modern woman, and this time around, more stream-lined. to smart wardrobe building. Take for instance, the red dress pictured left. It continues the figure-friendly long, lean pleated dresses from spring. The silhouette moves away from the body with a soft double…

  • Behind the Scenes at Alexander McQueen- The Beauty, the Splender, the Drama


     “I was thinking about a woman as an object of desire. We go to such lengths to adorn ourselves that we almost become our clothes or are taken over by them.

  • London Fashion Visits NY- The Best of London S/S 2012 at The London Show Rooms

    Holly Fulton

    Naveed and I popped by The London Show Rooms in New York last week to take a close-up and intimate look at some of London’s brightest designers. As always, we were mesmerized with the up close privilege of ogling at some incredible construction, innovative design, and left with a wish list days long from the generous talent of these young designers from “across the pond.”   I guessed right on wanting to see  Cate Blanchette wear Felicity Brown, as, ironically, she’s…

    YSL Spring 2012

    After seasons of major statement making shoes with mind-boggling heel heights and preposterous ornamentation, we’re really feeling the simplicity of the footwear options we saw on the runways for next spring. That’s not to say that footwear has been reduced to the simplistic and merely functional, quite the contrary indeed.

    Rochas Spring 2012

    After a month+ of consecutive international fashion shows, it can be hard to not only remember what we’ve seen, but to get a second to glance at all of the astonishing details seems sadly unlikely. That being said, we wanted to take a moment and look back at everything one could easily miss.

  • Age Appropriate Fashion- Over 40, It’s Back to classics and how to navigate trends for Spring 2012

    The Urban Jungles of this world inevitably produce trends in fashion that make their way into closets across America. With fashion week upon us, I’m looking forward to the fashion parade outside of Lincoln Center. The young and restless work the stairs and promenade leading up to the tents ala Lady Gaga!  Yet, there are elements that can be lifted from the wreckage such as the vintage print scarfs that reemerged during the fall 2011 fashion week in February.
