Richard Chai Love Is All About The Grunge Princess

If you’re not familiar with designer Richard Chai, here’s a quick history lesson: He used to be the design director at Marc Jacobs (ring a bell?), which made perfect sense given he presented a grungy street urchin meets girly-girl collection that reminded us of Marc by Marc in all the best ways. For the Richard Chai Love show, he combined pretty prints with clay-hued separates and baggy skirts and trousers with the waistbands rolled over in a style we haven’t seen since the ’90s. While we won’t be copping the latter look, we were turned on by boyish gray chunky boots, baggy sequin pants under knit layers, and smart wool military coats in olive and chocolate brown. We already knew grunge was back, but from the looks of this updated version, it’s here to stay for a while. Hint: This time around, just pair it with red lips. Keep reading »

Are Arm Warmers The Next Big Cold Weather Trend?

At two different designers’ fall 2010 presentations yesterday, I came across something a little unexpected: arm warmers. Lutz & Patmos featured luxe fur arm warmers (left), and the Falls collection included striped fingerless gloves scrunched around the wrists (right). [And I saw them at Richard Chai Love!--Editor] These could come in handy when you don’t feel like wearing layers of long sleeves under a coat, but what about your poor little fingers? Guess they’d freeze for fashion’s sake. What do you think about arm warmers? Keep reading »

Maggie Goes Back To Her Roots

Remember when we told you that supermodel Maggie Rizer is making a comeback by dying her hair red after Anna Wintour suggested she do so? We spotted her at the Fashion Week tents today, and yeah, looks like she went for it. [NYC, 2/11/10] Keep reading »

Watch Fashion Shows From The Comfort Of Your Couch

As of today, Fashion Week is officially underway, but with the snow and cold temperatures, getting around in New York City is simply treacherous. This weather makes you want to sit on your couch in PJs and catch up on daytime television, doesn’t it? Thankfully, 12 designers (so far!) have plans to embrace the internet during Fashion Week and will livestream their shows online, which means not only is it possible to stay at home to see the new fashions, but for those whose invitation got lost in the mail, it’s still possible to attend. You can watch Marc Jacobs’ celeb-free show on his website, catch Rodarte and Alexander Wang thanks to ShowStudio, and preview the G-Star looks on their Facebook page. It’s fashion meets the tech world, and it’s much, much warmer in here. [My It Things] Keep reading »

Marc Jacobs Thinks Celebrities Are “Boring”

Marc Jacobs and business partner Robert Duffy are banning celebrities from their shows at Fashion Week. For many of us, watching the who’s who of the front row is almost as exhilarating as seeing the latest fall collection, but according to Duffy celebrities are just “boring.” Granted, the team claimed that celebrities were verboten last year, even though we saw a spike-faced Lady Gaga and Madonna chillin’ by the runway. Apparently the Gaga was given special exemption from the “boring celebrity” rule because (besides the fact that she is ANYTHING but boring) the diva was headlining the after party. As for Madge … she just showed up uninvited. [NYmag.com] Keep reading »
