  • 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. This is a collection about excess – an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme.” – Sarah Burton, Creative Director of Alexander McQueen How often do we have the rare chance to be mesmerized by the beauty and intimacy of a collection so magical?

  • 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. From YSL’s shielded heeled loafers to Rochas’ mirrored slides, there were plenty of options out there to lift your wardrobe’s potential and your spirits too.  Here’s a look at the…

    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.

  • Best of Milan Fashion Week- D&G, Jil Sander, Moschino, Prada – Spring 2012


    As per usual, from New York collections one can expect pragmatic sportswear(the kind that doesn’t often reinvent the wheel, maybe just spins it), from London one can expect out-of-this-world, well executed propositions and from Milan; riotous colors, bold adornments and brilliant uses of technological advancements in fabrications. And with that being said, Milanese designers did not disappoint. We saw a large variety of finessed, retro-inspired options full of energy, enticing plays on print and a generous dose of giddy sex…
