Marc by Marc Jacobs Men's Collection Rocks the Fifties for Fall

Feb 22, 2013  |   Contributor: Tina Stewart

As a designer, Marc Jacobs is known for imitating the street style of the cool kids. Previously borrowing elements of grunge and punk for his designs, Jacobs is at it again with his Fall luxury menswear collection for 2013. Reaching back through time to the 1950's, the men's clothing for Marc by Marc Jacobs might remind some onlookers of their younger days, when they sifted through racks of tuxedo pants, windbreakers, rockabilly blazers, and the patterned suits. Although not groundbreaking, the collection does take us back to a style that was revolutionary in its day.... Read More

Trend Watch: Far East Visions for 2013

Feb 22, 2013  |   Contributor: Tina Stewart

What could be more stylish than slipping into an embroidered kimono top for a special night out? For this year's spring and summer collections, we are excited to see a trend among many designers towards Asian themes, complete with cherry blossoms, exotic shoes, and origami shapes. With so much attention towards the Far East nowadays, it is only natural that some luxury designers are honoring Chinese and Japanese traditions in their lines with specific fabrics and cuts that come from those regions. And with the recent celebration of the Chinese New Year, this trend couldn't be more fitting.... Read More

Channel Your Inner Jay Gatsby in Designs by Robert Talbott

Feb 19, 2013  |   Contributor: Annalisa Solari

Ever since Mr. F. Scott Fitzgerald created the legendary character Jay Gatsby, his casual cool sophistication and style has been something that men covet and women swoon over. Not surprisingly, the eternally dapper Robert Redford played the role of Gatsby in the movie rendition in the 1970’s and the remake scheduled to hit theaters this summer will star hunky heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio. It is not good looks alone that make these men so desirable, as they both display an extra edge and masculine charm that has set them above the rest. The same can be said for the luxury collection by Robert Talbott inspired by The Great Gatsby.... Read More

Fashion for the Modern-Day Vigilante by Gilded Age

Feb 18, 2013  |   Contributor: Annalisa Solari

The runway show appropriately took place at Chez André, an underground karaoke club in the Bowery neighborhood of New York City. This neon pink-infused environment combines rock 'n' roll, fashion, and a twinge of destruction— making it the ideal stage for luxury designer Stefan Miljanic's latest collection.... Read More

Floral Shapes Blossom in Alexandre Herchcovich Fall Collection

Feb 15, 2013  |   Contributor: Annalisa Solari

We can truly appreciate a luxury designer who is bold enough to rebel against creating ensembles that simply incorporate different variations of black, brown and navy— a characteristic that is typical of many fall collections. Alexandre Herchcovitch breaks the mold by designing structured clothing whose intricate shapes take inspiration from the array of flowers found in nature— furthermore, vibrant pops of color against a more toned-down palette reflect the natural hues that can be found in gardens and rainforests....

By depicting a range of different scenes and eras, the designs are surprisingly cohesive and ensembles were strikingly put together at the New York Fashion Week runway show.... Read More

1930's-Inspired Lingerie by Nevaeh Intimates

Feb 12, 2013  |   Contributor: Annalisa Solari

There is something so enchanting about a powerful woman wearing delicate luxury intimates. In recent years, this juxtaposition of a strong woman donning soft lingerie has taken the backseat to intimate apparel with little detail and obvious— at times even vulgar— sex appeal. But New York-based lingerie designer Melissa Franchi thinks old school— more specifically, Old Hollywood glamour, with Nevaeh Intimates.... Read More

Melancholy Is In for Fall: Christophe Lemaire Menswear

Feb 5, 2013  |   Contributor: Annalisa Solari

Attaining the disheveled-chic look is far more difficult than one would guess, however, luxury designer Christophe Lemaire has successfully created a diverse range of men’s pieces that can be worn day-to-day and combine quiet style with comfort....
