Fall 2013 London Fashion Week: Burberry Prorsum

19 Feb

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013

- By Nausheen Shah – Burberry Prorsum never seems to amaze London Town. Christopher Bailey and his team’s level of production is courageous to say the least.  Just about everyone fancy’s a ticket to their oversized greenhouse in Kensington Gore yet only a select few get to personally witness the next level of the British Powerhouse. [...]

Fall 2013 London Fashion Week: Matthew Williamson

19 Feb

Matthew Williamson Fall 2013

- By Sarah-Leigh Wade – Autumn/winter 2013 marked a season of progression for Matthew Williamson, demonstrated by his unexpected use of smooth shapes, loose fits and geometric prints. His typical bohemia was saved for the collection of eclectic prints rather than throughout, instead, chunky knits and well-cut suits marked a fresh, youthful but considered silhouette. [...]

Fall 2013 London Fashion Week: Mary Katrantzou

19 Feb

Mary Katrantzou Fall 2013

- By Nausheen Shah – Winter calls for hibernation and reflection when the short days and colder weather slow down our daily momentum. Mary Katrantzou has clearly changed seasons and is using her Fall/Winter 2013 collection to challenge her ideals of color and silhouette for the Katrantzou woman. – Like many other great avant-garde designers [...]

Unique Fall 2013

- By Sarah-Leigh Wade – London’s creative heritage and fashion credentials set the tone for Topshop Unique’s autumn/winter 13 collection. Not only was the show space set in the Tate Modern this season, but also, homage was paid to the famed Brit-pop era, with just a little beatnik undertone. Carnaby Street stalwarts and the city’s [...]

19 Feb

Temperly London Fall 2013

- By Sarah-Leigh Wade – Following on from her spring/summer collection – an elegant offering of striped full skirts and symmetrical filigree on sophisticated gowns – Alice Temperley chose to develop the theme for autumn/winter 13. More structured, yes, layering options, of course, deeper tones, yep, but the sophisticated femininity and dedication to showing a [...]

19 Feb

Emilia Wickstead Fall 2013

- By Sarah-Leigh Wade – For autumn/winter 13, London-based designer Emilia Wickstead paid homage to the accomplished female professionals of the mid-20th century.

Fall 2013 London Fashion Week: Preen

18 Feb

Preen Fall 2013

- By Teresa Greenfeld –   In a post apocalyptic world, one’s wardrobe must be chosen with care; presuming, of course, that chaos has ensued, and protecting oneself is the highest of priorities.   Or at least that’s how Preen designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi envision the end of the world   Inspired by Derek Jarmon’s [...]

Daks Fall 2013

- By Sarah-Leigh Wade – Daks presented a forward looking collection for a/w 13 at London Fashion Week, kicking off Saturday’s schedule to the beat of Billy Idol’s White Wedding. Taking an androgynous 1970s Charlotte Rampling as muse this season, soft tailoring and nonchalant cropped shapes were a focal point throughout. In amongst a typically autumnal palette, deep [...]

Glam Tip: How to Appear More Confident

5 Oct

confidence

There are many things that make a person attractive; in fact, there are actual algorithms that claim to determine attractiveness by measuring “ideal” facial esthetics.  Lotions, potions, cremes and powders, all promising youth and beauty, make up what is a multi-billon dollar beauty and skincare industry.  But the best products, the latest clothes and shoes, even [...]

Glam Tip: Bauble TLC

18 Sep

OP Costume Jewelry

- It’s safe to bet that most of our sparkly statement jewelry isn’t made up of real diamonds, emeralds, and rubies (have you ever seen a real neon pink gem?). That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care for them as if they were the real deal. The Basics: Store costume jewelry in a cool, dry location [...]

Glam Tip: Resurrect The Necklace Graveyard

27 Sep

Broken Necklace

  We all have that corner of our jewelry boxes that hold the ghosts of necklaces past; The Necklace Graveyard. We can’t bring ourselves to throw them away, perhaps secretly hoping the necklace fairy will fix them while we sleep.  Unfortunately, no such fairy exists, but fixing them is easy – with the proper tools: [...]

Glam Tip: Bringing Cozy Back

25 Oct

Fluffy Sweaters

Though you may catch more flies with honey, vinegar will give new life to knitwear that’s been stored away all summer-long.   Simply add a few capfuls to the rinse cycle of your gentle wash to bring back the fluff to your cozy, chunky sweaters. – Photo courtesty of Mert and Marcus for Vogue, Sept [...]

Glam Tip: Strap Happy

4 Nov

Clutch

While ultra-chic, clutches are not the most practical member of the handbag family.  Having a strap option -say, for when you’d like to hold anything other than your purse – is a beautiful thing.  But what if your favorite evening bag is without? Add one yourself (because choosing another purse is just nonsense). 1. Choose [...]

Glam Tip: Finding Your Skin Tone

9 Oct

OP Skin Tones

Your skin tone will determine everything from the shade of make-up you wear,  to the color of clothing that look best; even the color of those highlights that (ahem) “naturally” appear in your hair.  Yet incredibly, many people don’t actually know what tone their skin really is.  Often, we guess, using general factors like, “blonds [...]

Glam Tip: No-Slip Cami Grip

9 Nov

closet organization

Keeping one’s closet organized can be a full-time job in and of itself – between the winter wardrobe, the summer wardrobe, the transition pieces, and the “you never know’s”, it’s enough to make a girl take a hard look at a minimalist lifestyle (for about a minute).  Amongst those holding permanent, year round positions in [...]

Glam Tip: Have Them Hanging on Your Every Word

12 Oct

OP Talk to Anyone

We’ve all been there – you walk into a party, scan the room, and realize you don’t know a single person there. You may be tempted to turn around and run, or perhaps to stand in a corner, waiting for your “friend” to arrive (sighing dramatically and repeatedly glancing at your watch, of course).   [...]

Glam Tip: Strut Your Stuff

24 Sep

OP Walk Like a Model

We’ve all done a version of ‘the model walk’ at some point or another.  They’re usually either very over-exaggerated and meant in jest (the one you do in front of friends), or you’re trying to nail it for real, and you end resembling a gisele with an inner ear problem (the one you do when [...]

Glam Tip: Double Duty Cardigan

13 Sep

WrapCardigan

Always dependable, if a little boring, the cardigan is one of those wardrobe staples we all have in our closets. They’re our grab-and-go pieces; our “in case it gets chilly” after-thoughts – but they don’t have to be.  Pull them out of their corner-of-the-closet spot, and give your cardigans center stage by turning them into [...]

Glam Tip: Perfect Your Picture Pose

29 Nov

How to pose

  Ever wonder why some people look amazing in photos, whereas you look like someone accidentally used photo aging software? With profile pictures and tagged photos taking the place of real-life first impressions, a great shot is more important than ever (and we all know that once it’s online, it’s there forever). Though it’s true some [...]

Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week: Carolina Herrera

Carolina Herrera Spring2013

-By Diana Minnocci- Carolina Herrera always features classic, ladylike glamour, and her Spring/Summer 2013 collection was no exception. The colors were incredible, beginning with the palest of pastels – sky blue, seafoam green, a universally flattering yellow hue, barely-there pink – and then came the brights – tomato red, citrus and pumpkin oranges, a brilliant, [...]

DVF Spring2013

- By Teresa Greenfeld – For a woman who has built a lifestyle empire (which at last count, aside from fashion, included linens, home decor, fragrance – even a ping-pong set) on the foundation of the wrap dress, Diane von Furstenberg reminds us once again, she is a designer at heart.  The bohemian-meets-1960s Morocco-meets-downtown chic [...]

Thakoon Spring:Summer 2013

OliviaPalermo Pikolinos Maasai

- In our often hectic and full lives, we sometimes forget how truly blessed we are, and take for granted things we believe to be universal and basic rights, like having food when we’re hungry, and medicine when we’re sick. We forget that there are millions who starve, and millions that die from easily treatable [...]

Lorry Newhouse Spring 2013

14 Sep

Rachel Zoe Spring 2013

- By Teresa Greenfeld – Rachel Zoe’s penchant for 1960′s and 70′s nonchalance bohemian-glam, evident in her Fall 2012 collection, has been channelling Jane Birkin and Talitha Getty for Spring.  Citing the two icons as inspiration, Zoe showed a highly styled collection of strong pantsuits (of both wide and slim leg), embellished, slouching t-shirts, textured layers, and [...]
