Become A Lady Of Letters

Thanks to email and the Internet machine you’re currently on, letter writing has become something of a lost art form. But fashion editor Derek Blasberg (pictured with cat!) is about to change all that. Blasberg created the Handwritten Letter Helper, a kit to get you back in the writing game. It comes complete with several different…

“Downton Abbey” Left The Manor For The Olympics

The cast of “Downton Abbey” — both upstairs and downstairs — attended the Olympic Opening Ceremony last Friday. They posed for a group shot in front of the stadium, with Mr. Bates in something of a compromised position. But! Where’s the Dowager Countess? You know she wouldn’t dare mingle with the hoi polloi. And speaking…

Did This German Dignitary Use A Nazi Salute At The Olympic Opening Ceremony?

This is a picture of an unidentified German dignitary greeting his country’s athletes during the Olympic opening ceremony this past weekend. “Tell me that guy wasn’t doing a Nazi salute when the German team came out,” tweeted BBC broadcaster, Richard Gordon.

The Independent Olympic Athletes Are The Cutest Olympic Athletes

There’s really no question about who was having the most fun at the Olympics’ Opening Ceremony on Friday: It was clearly the three adorable people representing the Independent Olympic Athletes. Liemarvin Bonevacia, Reginald De Windt and Philipine van Aanholt are all from the Netherlands Antilles, a collection of Caribbean islands that lost its independent statehood…

Do Not Want: Floating Shoes You’ll Fall Over In

These Simone Rocha perspex brogues are troubling for a number of reasons. There’s the bright green vinyl color, for one. Then there’s the clear perspex heel, which is bound to get you into some major trouble. It looks virtually unwalkable, and purposely designed so. That’s probably why it’s an “employee pick” at high fashion church…

Zoe Kravitz Does Camo Right

Zoe Kravitz has cleaned up her image lately. Gone are the ripped and holed tights and scuffed shoes. In their place, Zoe has opted for this sweet Opening Ceremony dress and Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toe shoes. But the abstract camouflage print maintains the gritty way we’re used to seeing Zoe.

Chloe Sevigny Makes A Commercial With Spike Jonze, Sort Of

We suppose in some kooky, hipster, avant garde way, this 12-second clip directed by Spike Jonze is supposed to sell us on Chloe Sevingy’s newest collaboration with Opening Ceremony. Except we didn’t really see any of the clothes? I suppose that’s typically a problem, but probably not for Chloe. [Vimeo]…

Would You Wear: Opening Ceremony’s “Tron” Collection?

Out of all the movies out there, “Tron” definitely wasn’t on our radar as a potential style influencer. But apparently, designers have been finding inspiration in the sci-fi flick, which just goes to show you that fashion is as unpredictable as ever. The latest: Opening Ceremony’s “Tron Legacy” line, which features bulky and structured piece…

Your Closet Ain’t Got Nothing On Tavi’s

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…

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.

The Fanciest Water-Mucking Shoes We’ve Ever Seen

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…

Pretty As A Rosebud

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.

Afford Those Alexander Wang Studs!

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…

Levi’s & Opening Ceremony: Dull Product Shots, Better By Bubble

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…

Opening Ceremony And Levi’s Create Denim Awesomeness

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…

This Rodarte Sweater Will Make Him A Pauper

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…

Francophile Heaven: Deyrolle’s Scarves For Opening Ceremony

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…
