Did you go to Fashion’s Night Out in September? Well we did, and we had lots of fun (and even had the hangovers the next day to prove it). Of course, the question everyone asked after the Anna Wintour-organized extravaganza was “did it work?” because so much of the hype appeared less about shopping, and more about the parties and celebs. It took a while to assess, but now the reports are in and the answer is a resounding yes. WWD notes that 75 percent of attendees made a purchase that night. What this means: Fashion’s Night Out will be back next year for a repeat. Indeed, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced that FNO 2010 will be even bigger. What might draw more people out is a possible tax-free shopping day for the event (please?). This could be difficult to pass, but retailers are pressing for it. Will you go to Fashion’s Night Out next fall? In all likelihood, we will—why pass up a free all-access party? [WWD] Keep reading »
It may not look like the most fashionable coat on the market, but it is designer-made (as iconic as the DVF’s wrap dress to many), and will keep you toasty warm. Norma Kamali’s sleeping bag coat usually retails for $595 in stores, but she’s decided to be nice and generous. The designer not only began offering the coat–which was created 30 years ago during a cold camping trip–on her eBay site for under $300, but has now teamed up with WalMart to sell the piece for a ridiculously affordable price … only $35! Prepare to stalk your local WalMart for this toasty hot number. If you want to see what it looks like on, follow the jump to watch a Lucky editor try it on. [Lucky] Keep reading »
So, picture it, I’m putting on my makeup last night (fascinating right?)—mostly doing the same, exact thing I do every freaking time. Clearly, I need to change up my “look”—but that’s a whole different post. Anyway, the application order goes something like this: Clarins Flash Beauty Balm, concealer, bronzer/powder, eyeliner (I’m way into navy liner these days), mascara, blush and lipgloss. No deviation whatsoever. Apparently, I’m a bit in the wrong—you are supposed to do your eyes before everything else, even your foundation/concealer, or so says makeup artist Kate Lee (she’s glammed up every Hollywood starlet from Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley to Diane Kruger and Sienna Miller): “I like to do the smoky eye before starting any other makeup. That way, if you accidentally get a little bit of eyeshadow on your face, you don’t end up ruining your foundation or powder.” Interesting. What about you gals, do you have a make-up application formula? It looks like mine is sort of all wrong. [Teen Vogue] Keep reading »
Here’s a first look at Sonia Rykiel‘s upcoming H&M collection, featuring some mighty interesting lingerie. At first, we glanced at the French designer’s signature rose details and those little mesh boy shorts and thought, Not bad! But then we realized that these might be the least logical pieces of underwear. Ever. Unless you enjoy the lumpy, supersized nipple look under your t-shirt.
Rykiel’s line comes out in early December … does this look like the kind of thing you’d buy just to wear in the bedroom? Or if you’re going to put down for a designer collab, would you rather put your money towards something a bit more functional? [StyleCaster.com] Keep reading »
There’s a new online fashion magazine out there called Flamboyant, and its debut issue presents this “artistic” spread of designer-inspired loaves of bread. In the mix are carb-loaded replicas modeled after brands like Hermès, Valentino, and Vivienne Westwood. Normally, we squeal girlishly (um, you know, on the inside) at these types of conceptual fashion/food photographs. Remember those Chanel and Louis Vuitton cupcakes?
While we get the idea, Flamboyant‘s take doesn’t quite follow through. OK fine, we’re just going to come out and say it: that Burberry “croissant” looks like a turd. Yum! [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
I probably watched Jim Henson’s “Labyrinth”–starring a young Jennifer Connelly opposite the rawtha formidable one-and-only David Bowie, who played Jareth, the intimidating Goblin King–approximately 100 times when I was a kid and that’s no exaggeration. You better believe Bowie brought his signature sexy androgyny to the table and let’s just say it made a very young lady feel kinda funny inside. Is it weird to dress up as your childhood crush? Nah, but maybe it is a little kinky… Keep reading »

Normally, we’re not huge fans of the logo’d gear, but Fabrice mixes them up in a way that looks funky and fresh. We love how he’s paired these accessories with his pastel vintage sweater and plaid kicks. He’s in Prague’s Staromestske Nam (Old Town Square), headed toward Parizska trida, the designer shopping street, natch. What do you think of logo accessories?
