If you're planning a trip to Turks and Caicos then you might want to browse the most recent cruise collections that have just come out. Putting together a Resort Collection is always a fun and interesting time in ready-to-wear high fashion. This season, brands such as Chanel, Bottega Veneta, Dior and Oscar De La Renta are in full bloom. We’re seeing some special peplum dresses, cropped leather jackets, and one piece swimsuits in the mix! Our editors weigh in on their favorites here.
Chanel: In the spirit of cruise, Chanel reinvents its signature black and white fabrics for summer. Karl Lagerfeld puts a new twist on swimwear with this black and white one piece bathing suit (insert). Definitely one of the edgier pieces in the collection. Lagerfeld pushes the envelope even further with a black and white airy blouse and pantsuit, proving that the fashion maison’s work is always evolving.
The styles of Street Baptist which have been featured in videos for artist such as Lil Wayne, Neyo, and 50 Cent are bright and edgy with a couture twist. With attention to detail, and an eye for silhouette, Cherylyn D. Williams has made Street Baptist a refreshing and funky go to collection for fashion forward women in New York City!
YSL has just released Miss Cara in their latest beauty campaign featuring their Babydoll Mascara product.
If you've opened up a magazine in the past year, then you have been quite familiar with the many faces of Cara Delevingne. Cara plays the role of two different characters; an elegant and proper female vs. a wild child in the city. It is a pretty entertaining one minute video clip, if you are a Cara fan. Besides now being the new face of YSL Beauty, she has recently signed a contract with Burberry Body Tender.
On May 17th, New York-based fashion designer, Peter Som and retailer Anthropologie will be releasing their Spring/Summer collaboration collection just in time for wedding season. The collection will be filled with delicate pleating, classic silhouettes, and separates with major floral moments.
Earlier this year, Anthropologie's sister brand, with a main focus on bridal wear, BHLDN, recruited Peter Som to create elegant wedding gowns. Now they are streaming their creativity on looks for the people taking the seats!
Cara Delevinegne, the 20-year old English fashion model has had quite a run this year in the fashion world. She is fashion's new It girl and her success can be spotted in every magazine and on every corner of the street. Much like the many comparisons between Justin Bieber and MJ, Delevinegne has earned the same iconic comparisons to Kate Moss and everyone has taken notice.
Think about this last time you have opened a magazine and Miss Cara was not on every other page. This bold brow beauty has scored huge campaigns and has walked every single major catwalk at New York, London, and Paris Fashion Weeks and was on top of the Victoria's Secret Fashion show earlier this year. So in all how many show did Cara walk for the Spring/Summer 2013 collections? A total of an impressive 39 runways. Her most recent campaings include Burberry, Chanel, DKNY, and more.
It is safe to say that the Italian fashion label known for its notorious zig-zag print has had a rough past year. If you recall back to the weekend of January 4th, Vittorio Missoni—the marketing director of Missoni and son of the Missoni founder, Ottavio, vanished on a small plane. Vittorio and his wife were traveling off the coast of Venezuela and the aircraft disappeared. With a long, strategic search and no plan of giving up hope, there was never sight of the plane. Despite the horrific tragedy, the Missoni fashion show in Milan still took place and ended with a standing ovation but to an empty stage.
New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s costume exhibition this year was appropriately titled, PUNK: Chaos to Couture. The show examined punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement's birth in the early '70s through its continuing influence today. The show also included original punk garments and recent, directional fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk's visual symbols. Various artists and designers put their best foot forward at the recent opening of the exhibition, decked out in their classiest punk-inspired attire. Here are some of our favorite looks from the night!
We all love to watch an original fashion film from time to time. Especially when the names Coco Chanel, Keira Knightley, and Lindsey Wixon are involved. A short film titled Once Upon a Time, directed by the ever-so-fabulous Karl Lagerfeld, was released yesterday, May 9th, starring Miss Keira Knightley as Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. The setting takes place at the flagship Chanel store in Deauville, France circa 1913. Lagerfeld produced this film to honor Chanel’s 100th anniversary
We have discussed the flooded success of H&M on Glam Damn It a few times so why stop now? After all, like we said H&M is on fire and are continuing down an overwhelmingly successful path. So how else can the Swedish label shock us besides gaining Beyonce as the face of the Spring Campaign and designing upcoming Olympic uniforms?
Beyonce may run the world but H&M is now ahead of the game in most recently signing a multi-million dollar contract with...dramatic drum roll please...GISELE. Yes..you read this correctly. Gisele Bundchen; the world's first billionaire supermodel will be joining the ranks with H&M.
