Look naughty and nautical in this cutie-pie poplin dress from Topshop. Of course, Topshop hasn’t opened Stateside yet (be patient until April, our pet) so you’ll have to import this little number from England. It comes in red, too, in case you’re channeling “candy striper,” not “longshoreman.” [About $80, TopShop.com] Keep reading »
Pretty soon spring will begin to bloom in retail stores across the country, even though it is still rather frigid outside. This season you can get more bang for your buck by creating a streamlined, more cohesive style rather than buying a ton of stuff that doesn’t really go together. We explain the biggest trends this spring after the jump. Tell us in the comments which one appeals to you most.

So many fashion shows, so little time. This weekend there were even more runway runaways, with everyone from Diane Von Furstenberg (one of our overall favorites — I am even wearing a thrifted dress of hers today) to William Rast (that’s Justin Timberlake’s clothing line) showing in NYC. After the jump, are some of our favorite looks from Herve Leger (known for his bandage-style dresses), DVF, and Donna Karan’s sportswear line, DKNY. Keep reading »
Oh, Fashion Week. How exciting you are. New York’s look at Spring 2009 started on Friday. After the jump are some of the designers whose newest wares struck our fancy, at least on the runway. We’ll be covering Fashion Week all next week as well, so stayed tuned for some other designers who made our stomachs turn. [Above: Rachel Comey] Keep reading »
Geren Lockhart, designer of the Geren Ford collection is having quite a year with her super-hyped Urban Outfitters collection. Lockhart also pulled out of LA Fashion Week, presenting instead last night at New York City’s Bowery Hotel.
The Spring 2009 collection was not much of a variation from the designer’s signature use of silk fabrics, utilitarian details, and simple, flowy shapes. Still, we ogled over the rich, jewel tones in the line. The models, who were presented non-traditionally on pedestals, sported items like floor-length electric blue dresses, pink tanks paired with moss green tiered skirts, and pleated shorts with ruffled tanks. There were also a number suit-like styles — shorts coupled with matching jackets and the like.
We were pretty ecstatic over the goody bag which, among a handful of beauty products and candy, included the collection’s signature silk scarf. It’s decorated with an abstract design that we’re told is a bit of a mind trick and actually represents something (like an animal or insect), but we couldn’t figure it out. Keep checking out Daily Candy this week — they’ll be giving the scarf away! Keep reading »
