Three Chic Coat Styles to Try This Fall

Oct 26, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

There are a few reasons why we love fall, and most— if not all— of those reasons are fashion-related. While sundresses and cut-off shorts are fun and all, there’s really nothing better than snuggling into the coziness of luxury fashion items for fall and winter. And while outerwear should be warm, don’t think that you have to succumb to shapeless puffy vests and down jackets to get you through the colder months. There are plenty of chic coat styles out there— and the best news is that these styles are fashion-forward but also timeless, meaning that you’ll get good use out of them for years to come....

Newcomer Makes Debut at L.A. Fashion Week

Oct 25, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

One reason why we look forward to luxury fashion shows is that while we get to “ooh” and “ahh” at our favorite established designers, we’re also given the opportunity of being surprised by a few newcomers. This season, one such designer is Maria Korovilas, who graced us with her first collection last week at L.A. Fashion Week.... Read More

Eleni T Stuns in Lascivious Lingerie Look Book

Oct 23, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

Eleni T may be a relatively unknown name in the modeling industry, but that won’t last for long after her recent campaign shots for Lascivious. The stunning model isn’t shy in the luxury lingerie brand’s look book for this season, posing in a number of suggestive positions and bearing all in a few. Needless to say, we won’t be surprised if images of this pretty lady start appearing on every college boy’s dorm room wall— like, now.... Read More

Quintessentially British Looks for Fall by Hackett London

Oct 22, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

Hackett London is a brand with a long-standing history behind its name. The luxury menswear label was founded in 1979 by two friends, Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings, who met while shopping for second-hand classic British fashion in London’s Portobello Market. The two successfully began selling vintage menswear as vendors in the same market, and opened their own Hackett standalone store on London’s New Kings Road four years later. In 1985 they finally began selling their own creations, and today the brand is comprised of six lines— including menswear, formal knit, tailoring, eyewear, accessories and even children’s wear....

3 Luxury Scarves to Keep You Stylishly Warm this Season

Oct 19, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

Oh, autumn. Our favorite thing about this season— aside from apple picking, carving pumpkins, and going on hayrides— is the cozy luxury fashion we get to wear while doing all those chilly outdoor activities. Knitted gloves, cozy hats, and our favorite, most versatile accessory of them all: scarves. Though they may bring up haunting memories of the chunky wool monsters that your mother lovingly dressed you in as a child, if you get the right material and know how to wear them, scarves can actually become your best friend and number one sidekick in the colder months. Below, we round up some of our favorites from high-end labels that will ensure you’re looking stylish while staying warm this season.... Read More

Sophia Graydon Brings Style Back To Sleepwear

Oct 18, 2012  |   Contributor: Annalisa Solari

Wearing sleepwear as outerwear has been a major runway hit this past season, but when it actually comes to dressing for the bedroom, many of us throw luxury fashion out the window and resort to oversized t-shirts or worn out garments. Monica Nassif, founder of Sofia Graydon, discovered that when searching for a pair of luxury pajamas, there were none to be found. Style isn’t something that you should be able to take off once you go to sleep, and Nassif’s goal became to create the most luxurious, elegant and beautifully made lounge and sleepwear to bring style and elegance back into the bedroom....

A Day in the Life of 3 of Today's Most Successful Models

Oct 18, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

There’s an infatuation with super models that extends far beyond the luxury fashion world and consumes people from all walks of life with different interests. Much like society’s obsession with celebrities and their doings, we’re just as interested— if not more— with supermodels, possibly due to the lack of inside information we have on them.... Read More

Oct 12, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

Whether you’re running to hail a cab, booking it to Starbucks on your coffee break, or trying to make a dinner date on time, you need a good pair of luxury shoes to get you through the never-ending list of appointments you have this fall. While plenty of the fall shoe collections coming out from our favorite designers make us giddy, there’s nothing worse than those few pairs that are actual pieces of art on the shelf, but are basically unrealistic on our feet.

There is something to be said about slipping into an Italian-made piece of luxury clothing and stepping out to take on the world.

Oct 4, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

Paris Fashion Week went out with a bang by with the debut of Chanel’s ready-to-wear collection for Spring/Summer 2013. The luxury brand, whose last several clothing lines have been designed by Karl Lagerfeld, presented a refined collection that referenced the 1960s. The ever-shocking Lagerfeld sent models down a runway equipped with solar panels and wind turbines, of all things, to represent the designer’s idea that, “Energy is the most important thing in life.”...

New Eco-Friendly Designer Already a Hit in Hollywood

Oct 3, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

The Emmys last week officially marked the start of Awards Season— and with that, luxury designer name-dropping. After watching all the Red Carpet recaps last week, we realized there was one designer’s name that we kept hearing over and over again: Oliver Tolentino. And after doing a little research on the new designer, not only are we impressed with his resumé that is already sprinkled with big-name celebrities, but his unconventional approach to luxury women’s fashion is intriguing, as well....
