The Rumor Mill: More Topshops In The New York Area!?

Swirling, unsubstantiated rumor has it that British mega-brand and recent New York immigrant Topshop–yes, the place to whence our collective wages go–will be setting up shop in Brooklyn next year. While we’re all excited for the Brooklynites who’d no longer have to cross the bridge for Topshop’s particular brand of decently-priced designer knockoffs inspired pieces, there are a few other places we’d rather see the chain open. Like, in lots of other cities across the nation. And right next door to our offices. Or, you know, in the same building. Who do we talk to about setting that up? [Papier Blog] Keep reading »

Is The New Knee Pad Trend For You?

Trend de la Creme reports: “It’s Official: Knee-Centric Leggings Are a Trend.” Lindsay Lohan created a pair last year, and now they’re everywhere, from Ann-Sofie Back to Marc Jacobs to Henrik Vibskov. So, what’s the reason? Why would girls want to wear knee pads? It’s hard not to think of one thing. For, you know, padded protection while servicing their male friends. Or, I guess, if a girl were to slip and fall on her way to work, these would be a life-saver. But the Monica Lewinsky idea is so much more interesting. Don’t you think?

Get The “It” Look For Fall By Shopping In Your Closet

Hurray! Despite the grim economic climate, there is good news for back to school style. Fashion forecasters and experts are predicting a trend that is easy on the eyes and wallet: individuality. Stylists are not predicting any new radical “must haves” clothes or “will die without” accessories. Instead, we are seeing familiar popular trends getting personalized twists. By now every gal has a pair of skinny jeans, but what she chooses to pair with it is the new X factor. This season, rather than buying an ensemble a store puts together, we suggest you opt for acting as your own stylist and highlight your own unique style. Luckily for you, the best way to find individuality is through shopping…in your closet. Nothing states your style as well as your favorite items from seasons past. Read our tips for the ultimate back to school shopping in your closet guide after the jump. Keep reading »

Attention Ladies: Kyle Smith Thinks Your Maxi Dress Is Ugly

Earlier this month we asked readers of The Frisky, “Do you dress for men or women?” Most of you said you dress for yourself, period, which is why we thought you’d be interested in hearing about a controversial little article that ran in the New York Post this weekend. Writer Kyle Smith is very upset about women wearing maxi-dresses (a la the type Angie has helped make extra popular), and wants the ladies of NYC to know that these “urban burqas” aren’t doing them any favors. But wait, it gets better, or um, worse…

Imagine Your Floor Covered In Tory Burch and Peter Som

No, we’re not referring to all those dresses and tops and pants you have laying on your bedroom floor—more like a designer piece that’s actually supposed to be there. The “Fashion Underfoot II” rug capsule collection for Elson & Company is designed in partnership with the CFDA and a long list of celebrated designers including Thakoon (that’s his handiwork, at left!), Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa, Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein Home, Doo Ri, Cynthia Rowley, Lily Pulitzer, Tory Burch and Peter Som. They custom-designed a carpet that was then hand-woven with Himilayan wool by a team of master artisans in Nepal. And the best part? Ten percent of the proceeds will benefit Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, a CFDA initiative that’s supporting women with breast cancer and has raised more than $40 million for the cause since 1994. If you’re looking to make a purchase, check out AM Collections. [Elson & Company] Keep reading »

Topshop And Other Stores That Sell Recycled Clothes We’d Actually Wear

Topshop is known for selling clothes that hit all the current trends, but the retailer will take a trip to the past at its flagship store in London this summer by selling vintage clothes and fabrics. Designed by young up-and-comers, the first reworked vintage collection is Sport Nouveau and includes ’70s sports shirts that have been transformed into tennis skirts and old dresses that have been made into jumpsuits. Yum!

The British retailer isn’t the first company to sell old clothes alongside new ones. Urban Outfitters has carried out a similar strategy with its Urban Renewal line since the ’80s, selling both vintage pieces and styles that have been created using vintage fabrics or by reworking items. Where to get the goods, after the jump… Keep reading »
