It is a sad day for New York City bargain-hunters, as we mourn the loss of retail giant Loehmann’s, the New York staple is closing its doors. Liquidating all of its national stores, and stopping sales on its website, the fashion haven was just 6 years shy of its centennial anniversary. What began in Brooklyn 94 years ago has become a national chain stocked with the greatest brands at unbeatable prices. We can find solace in the fact that their liquidation will probably inspire the ultimate of all sales, with all of their already marked down merchandise sold with even lower sale prices. Stop in to any of their 39 stores to get your final fix before they close their doors for the last time (online purchases are no longer possible).
Halt! The E. Houston location of American Apparel is now showcasing mannequins with visible pubic hair underneath their sheer underwear. To say that these mannequins are sporting dainty pubic hair is an understatement-- it's more of like a visible shock attempt at grabbing the attentions of passers-by. This shocking display is proving to be wildly successful as people are spotted snapping photos of these mannequins.
The Huffington Post reported that they spoke to an associate at the store who replied that the mannequins were meant to portray the "rawness and realness of sexuality." How ironic, considering that these mannequins have stone cold, plastic hearts. Also, this display is intended to drive up sales in time for Valentine's Day
We've been psyched ever since Carrie Bradshaw Sarah Jessica Parker announced she was collaborating on a shoe line with Manolo Blahnik. So when Gayle King got an exclusive look at the collection with O Magazine, we couldn't wait to check it out.
SJP sat down with King and Adam Glassman, the creative director at O, at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York City to try on the much-anticipated foortwear. The Coveteur filmed a beautifully-lit video of the dress-up session, with shots of the gorgeous pumps and a soundtrack that made us feel oddly sentimental. A highlight is when Parker discusses the idea of the collection, which emphasizes the unexpected concept of colors as a neutral.
We recently met up with one of our favorite handbag designers, Rachel Nasvik, at a cozy café in Greenwich Village. We first learned of Rachel back in 2009, when we spotted her gorgeous Penelope bag on a close friend and instantly fell in love. Ultimately, it also became our first Rachel Nasvik purchase. Our love for the designer grew exponentially over the coming years, as did our collection of her designs.
This interview was the first time we met Rachel, though we have emailed on and off for years. This accessibility and graciousness is what makes Rachel stand apart from other designers.
We would like to introduce you to the very talented and extremely young designer, Melissa Jade, "Missy X" Aiello. At only the age of nine, Missy began establishing her own T-shirt label, Tees by Missy X. Usually, kids at her age are busy playing video games and stick ball, with no desire to launch their own business, but not Ms. Jade. Now, at the age of eleven, Missy has her own exclusive business. She is officially illustrating tees for clientele that includes the likes of Wiz Khalifia. All of the tee's are hand-drawn, customized potraits of fashion icons including Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, Donatella Versace, Vivenne Westwood, and Yohii Yamamoto.
