Yes, we may be in the dead of summer now, but fall is just around the corner. So don't procrastinate and get ready for the cool weather with these staple mens pieces that are both functional and on trend.
Gloves are usually thought of as a winter necessity rather than a fashion accessory. But thanks to Karl Lagerfeld and Christopher Bailey, gloves have become the hot new menswear accessory. Known for his signature fingerless leather gloves, Karl Lagerfeld has finally made this look accessible to the general public with his Karl line. For his Burberry Fall 2012 show, Christopher Bailey showed studded men’s gloves that are one of the most coveted Fall 2012 accessories. Other brands who showcased this must have accessory were Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Louis Vuitton and Salvatore Ferragamo. No matter what your style, owning a pair of gloves is essential this fall/winter season.
While you're out relaxing at the beach and soaking up some sun, the fashion taste makers are already hard at work deciding what menswear trends are going to be must-haves for Spring 2013. London started off the men's fashion weeks with its first ever stand-alone menswear fashion week. Prince Charles kicked off this momentous fashion event with a soiree at St. James Palace. With it's young up-and-comers, London Fashion Week provided a glimpse into what the edgy downtowners are going to be rocking next spring. Milan's Fashion Week is almost coming to a close but not without it's own surprises such as Dolce & Gabbana's model-less runway show. Read on to check out the Spring 2013 must-have trends.
The wounds are still fresh from these recent celeb wardrobe disasters. So far 2012, sadly, has not disappointed in the "fashion faux-pas" department. From over-the-top costumes, to dress malfunctions and hideous accessories, brace yourselves for fashion fails we'd all like to forget about.
With this look, it's no wonder Sasha Gradiva came armed for the 2012 Grammy Awards! The dress was beautiful and elegant on this singer/song-writer/actress, however, it was the terminator arm that got in the way of what could have been a Marilyn Monroe moment. Maybe next time accessorize with something a little less bulky?
Does H&M know how to spoil us, or what ladies!? From collaborations with Jimmy Choo to Versace—H&M has a crystal ball view into our deepest fashion desires! Get ready for the next UFC (ultimate fashion championship!) with the first look at the next covetable collaboration: Marni for H&M. And do we have scoop for you! Not only has the first advertising campaign image surfaced, there’s a video campaign and shots from a Vogue Russia editorial too!
Designed by Consuelo Castiglioni, the Italian brand is highly known for its sophisticated, yet fierce look, artistic style, and funky prints. Perfect for spring, the Marni for H&M collection is expected to resemble a more vintage and bohemian style, according to Ms. Castiglioni herself. “I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favorite pieces in signature fabrics and prints,” the Marni designer said in a statement. “As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colors, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic adding sporty utilitarian elements.” We can all look forward to signature Marni style and respectable quality, just at a (much appreciated) more affordable price point. And more news that makes our hearts melt—not only will the Marni for H&M collection include apparel and jewelry, shoes and menswear will debut as well.
No matter the occasion, red carpets, celebrities, and paparazzi never fails to bring us fabulous fashion we can revel in for days! The evening captured a theme of "classic elegance," says Nicole Richie, celebrity mentor on the upcoming series Fashion Star and famous boho beauty. Shining, shimmering, and showing some skin our favorite Hollywood bombshells lit up the event. Here are our nominees for Unparalleled Style in Best Golden Globe Fashion.
Lea Michele looked fabulous in this silver and sheer Marchesa gown. All of that choreographed dancing and singing has completely paid off in the form of an amazing body! To offset the elaborately embroidered design, Lea kept it simple with a classic updo, understated makeup (smokey eye, nude lip), and a bright emerald green cocktail ring.
2011 has been an incredible year, sartorially speaking. From Anne Hathaway's eight costume changes at the Academy Awards to Diane Kruger...well, whenever the woman puts on clothes, a few of the ladies that didn't make the cut were this close. Ultimately, we decided that the criteria to make Joonbug's "Top Looks of 2011" list lay within three very simple (and very visible) requirements: originality, memorability and game-change factor. Once we began to whittle down our large list, we found that very few looks - no matter how much we loved them - fit these requirements.
1. Be Katy Perry for Halloween! Everyone loves to dress up like their favorite celebrity, so who better to swag grab from then the couture influenced multi-Grammy nominee whose hottest looks are literally ripped from the runway. The model shown here is wearing one of the outfits shown in a Christian Dior fashion show nearly 3 years before the California Dream star made her first debut. 2. The Geisha theme has often been popularized on both on the runway and among trick or treaters alike. They make great for Facebook pictures and just about every mainstream designer has presented their collection using their own rendition of the Geisha theme at least once. If you're going to spend the time even putting a costume together, make sure to go all out! The late great Alexander McQueen is the epitome of all things theatrical. The model featured in this picture is wearing an item from one of the now archived/vintage collections. If you are still looking for inspiration and Alexander McQueen is right up your alley, take a look of past images from the Savage Beauty Exbihit that displayed McQueen's best work from 2010 through this past August.
Have you been keeping count of all of fashion's designer collaborations this year? Missoni for Target; Versace for H&M; Karl Lagerfeld for Fossil. What? You read right. Karl Lagerfeld is teaming up with Fossil to create an exclusive line of men's and women's watches that will be designed, developed, and distributed under the Karl Lagerfeld label.
Announcement of the collaboration was made Wednesday, and Vice Chairman of Fossil, Mark Quick, said of the company's thoughts on the venture, "We look forward to working with Karl Lagerfeld. It is a pleasure to work with such an inspiring fashion visionary."
Talk about fashion mayhem! After Target released a new line featuring Italian designer Missoni on September 13th, not only did crazed fashionistas clear the racks of their local Targets, but they also managed to crash the Target website all in one day! The goal was to provide fashion savvy individuals with great designer styles at affordable prices. While they did just that, the designers did not expect for the entire collection to sell out that quickly. With markup prices ranging from 25% to 400%, people are now paying big bucks on eBay for the Missoni Target line. This counteracts the plan of creating a designer clothing collection at a discounted price. In this collection for Target, you can tell it’s Missoni from a mile away, with it’s bright zigzag patterns and bold colors. The collection includes over 400 pieces, from boots to bags, knits and flats, to make-up accessories and home and kitchenware items. Now available only on eBay, if you want to spend more than double the retail price that is.
Fellas made sure their pocket squares were looking crisp while Gals overdid their makeup in celebration of, you guessed it, Fashion's Night Out.
Instead of night clubs, elite fashion houses were the highlight of the city last Thursday, September 8th. Salvatore Ferragamo was the spot to be on 5th Avenue this year, while posting a 'Private party' sign outside. All the normal people were lined outside, trying to get a peek of what was happening beyond those walls, as we tippy-toed past security.
Inside, champagne and house pomegranate cocktails were flying. Accompanied by tuna tartare hors d'oeuvres about the size of a cigarette.There were also many other interesting different finger foods, one of which even included foie gras in a flaky pastry. The best bite of the night had to be the red velvet balls. They were so delicious, you probably could've found yourself fighting for the last one with Sports Illustrated super model Jessica Hart...
