Tavi‘s apparently selling off some of her own clothes at Opening Ceremony come Fashion’s Night Out. So the retailer had to ask her, “What does your closet look like?” Tavi responds:
“I recently switched with my dad. I now have half a wall of my parents’ room and half of their walk-in. And it still overflows.”
Whoa! I got yelled at if I left a pair of socks in my parents’ room. (Yet, admittedly, I totally had dreams of taking over their crazy walk-in closet which was the size of a small bedroom.) Think Tavi’s situation is awesome or kinda crazy? [Opening Ceremony] Keep reading »
Few things in the world provide more excitement than a sundae bar. Q-Pot trumps that joy with its new line of build-your-own necklaces for Opening Ceremony. Start by choosing a cone base in pink or yellow gold, then add on scoops of brightly colored charms (mint, cherry, strawberry). To satisfy your salt craving, try the DIY hamburger necklace, adding layers of gold lettuce or sunny-side-up eggs. The one caveat: if you get carried away, the price can get steep. On the other hand, your creation will be cute and calorie-free.
We’re not sure why you would wear fancy water shoes on dry land, or why you would wade around in water in your fancy shoes, but Timberland and Opening Ceremony seem to think there’s a market for stylish amphibians. They’ve teamed up to make these slick water shoes, which have a punchy oxford motif, but come in breathable nylon. For the dandy especially concerned with looking his finest while mucking through the mud? [Lost in a Supermarket] Keep reading »
Betsey Johnson never fails to deliver when it comes to making super fun yet utterly feminine clothing. However, this particular skirt (part of her Opening Ceremony collection) not only cries out Betsey, but we think it’s perfect when trying to conceal any tummy bulge. You know, if we cared about that sort of thing.
You’ve seen one of the Olsen twins toting around the $800+ Alexander Wang Coco Mini leather bag with a bottom full of of studs and if you’re anything like me, you were filled with envy at the sight. I’ve swooned over its beauty and contemplated ways to save money — forgo lunch, pick up babysitting jobs instead of going out on the weekends, ask for my Christmas and birthday presents for the next few years all in one — but as of yet, the studded gem has yet to enter into my collection. Now it looks like I have another option. Alexander Wang created a similar version of the Coco Mini in tote shape for his Alexander Wang x Opening Ceremony collaboration. Just like his expensive handbag, the bottom of the tote is full of studs in either silver or gold, but you’ll save a ton of money on this option. Because the best part is that the tote retails for $125, which is slightly more affordable. [Racked] Keep reading »
We had some high hopes for the Levi’s and Opening Ceremony collaboration. But preview shots are out, and we’re having some mixed feelings. Style.com posted some product images of the line—some corduroy cut-offs and button-downs, as well as a denim jacket—and we thought we were looking at pictures of Levi’s styles that have been around for ages. Wisely, the two companies also appealed to bloggers, sending Susie of Style Bubble the complete collection, and asking her to style it. She’s done a much better job with presenting the fashions, going monochromatic, or putting two bright colors together.
We’re still not sure, however, if the corduroy wares look better on Bubble because of the cool choices she paired them with, or if they’re worth it as stand-alone items. Check out some more pics after the jump. What do you think? [Style.com] Keep reading »
We’ll come clean: Opening Ceremony is one of those concept stores we love to follow and write about, but have we ever bought anything there? No. We believe the term is called … aspirational living. Anyhow, now’s the chance for us to step across the gilded threshold because the high-end retailer has teamed up with Levi’s to launch a special collection with a $150 price cap. The range will include some denim items, including jackets (nice, bringing them back), plus a bunch of unisex pieces (everyone’s favorite thing these days).
Interestingly, a large chunk of the line will be devoted to corduroy. Teen Vogue reports that there will be “eight different shades including lavender and curry.” The material is definitely classic, but come to think of it, we haven’t worn our corduroy pants in quite some time. How do you feel about them? Different for girls than guys? [Teen Vogue] Keep reading »
If shivering from the piercing winter wind doesn’t make you look like a street urchin ready to be thrown in the poor house, the price tag on this sweater will help you get there. Rodarte‘s new men’s collaboration with Opening Ceremony is no lowbrow Tar-jay event. This threadbare piece will set you back a cool $2,760.00. Also, it comes in small for all you rich ladies out there! [Opening Ceremony] Keep reading »
A good Francophile knows Deyrolle. The famous taxidermy boutique has been operating out of Paris’s 7th arrondissement since 1831 and inside is a veritable cabinet of curiosities. It’s a must-see stop on any tourist’s list and a go-to if you’re in the market for a six foot taxidermied polar bear, framed rare beetle, or intimidating stuffed leopard. Deyrolle has apparently teamed up with Opening Ceremony for a little collaboration which produced these nature-inspired scarves. How very chic! [Opening Ceremony] Keep reading »
