Just kidding. We wouldn’t wear this for such an occasion. It’s more like a at-a-birthday-party-for-your-grandma kind of outfit. So appropriate! [Milan, 9/28/09] Keep reading »
Thank you H&M for consistently making designer creations available to the masses. Continuing on their collaboration takeover, the brand brought on cult favorite Sonia Rykiel to create two, yes two, collections, just in time for the holidays. The French designer will launch not only knitwear and accessories, but she’ll be the very first to bring designer lingerie to H&M.
The first iteration of her designs–the sexy underpinnings–will be available on December 5th in 1500 stores, as well as her own. Sadly, her knitwear line will be sold in only 250 stores on February 20th; thus, the line in major cities is sure to be astronomical. At least those in the U.K. fare a better chance at scooping up some Rykiel pieces, as H&M’s finally planning on starting online shopping this fall. When can we shop online H&M? Guess we’ll have to stick with eBay. [WWD]
While generally reserved for strippers, Lucite heels might break into the mainstream thanks to their presence on the Prada runway and in Maison Martin Margiela’s collection. But the ones we’ve seen are pricey — to the tune of a grand and more — and some would say they still look cheap.
So, if clear heels aren’t your thing, you can still jump on the see-through bandwagon. There are always clear accessories or clear nails, the latter which was at Prada’s spring 2010 show and seems to be on the forefront of transparent since we certainly haven’t seen them before.
Not to be confused with nude nails or ones painted with clear polish, transparent nails are clear extensions that go atop normal nails. They sort of resemble when we put pieces of Scotch tape on our hands at a very young age. While Miuccia Prada designs clothes that launch trends, we’re not sure who’s going to get behind this one. Maybe the people who are already into Lucite heels? [British Vogue] Keep reading »
Even though message tees are so passé, you can still show people what you’re made of, literally. The “Ingredients” T-shirt by U.K.-based graphic designer and illustrator Roper lists all the elements that make up the human body. We never considered that we were made of silver and gold, but we guess it’s possible to inhale or ingest particles without realizing it. Isn’t geek chic fun!

Camel and gray is the most sophisticated color combination for fall, just ask Derek Lam and Michael Kors, who both showed it on the fall runway. Heading out to meet friends at Place de la Bourse, Marie nails the season’s trend by layering her gray Comptoir des Contonniers dress with a camel Uniqlo cardigan. The cool girl attitude? Also seen on the runway. Keep reading »
OK, so if you think about hippie ear plugs and rapper swag style, man jewelry hasn’t really gone anywhere. (Mewelry? Guylery? Man bling? Mling? But we digress …)
According to The New York Times‘ The Moment blog, man earrings are coming back from their heyday in the ’90s, and this time, with a slightly different flavor. Used to be, guys might pierce an ear to signify sexual preference. Left means straight; right means gay gay gay. Apparently, however, recent fashions haven’t necessarily advertised sexuality so much as style. Rag & Bone decked out its guy models with piercings for its recent showing during Fashion Week. (OK, slightly ambiguous).

I think we can all agree that we’re so over the $300 price tag that certain denim companies shamelessly attach to plain old jeans. Not that we wouldn’t pay a significant amount of money for the perfect pair of jeans that we’ll wear everyday, but still, it’s cotton people! Those profits must be amazing! That’s why we’re kind of feeling the newish company, Recession Denim, which makes very high-quality jeans that are designed to last a lifetime, which if we’re paying more than $75, is all we’re asking for, ya know? They feature plenty of cuts and styles, but the prices are a little more reasonable. (Personally, we’re loving the new Motorcycle model with sewn-in paneling, $98, in black.) They just started selling at Bloomingdale’s, and check their site for more stores. Keep reading »
