There are times when, admittedly, we haven’t been totally on-board with a Chanel collection (remember the fanny packs of S/S 2014 couture?), but luckily for us this wasn’t one of those times because Chanel’s Couture Fall/Winter 2014 collection was amazing.
Okay, we have some seriously heartbreaking news—Ryan Gosling is reportedly about to be a dad. Deep breath, ladies—we promise it’s not the end of the world. While this news has been buzzing around social media and tabloids since earlier this morning, there’s no real evidence that the couple is expecting.
Trying to get through eight days of Baselworld without buying a watch is like trying to get through Fashion Week without buying a wardrobe—virtually impossible. And after the event, when we start to pick and choose which timepieces we’re going to need for the next year, we always prefer to look at some of the newer brands. Every man with money can buy a Rolex or Patek Philippe, but having an eye for emerging brands takes a horological connoisseur. ZZ Watches, a new Swiss brand, was launched only a few months ago, but is capturing our attention due to their very unique, new collections—the Tornade and Cyclone.
In both watch styles the dial is made up of two windows, one for hour and the other for minutes, set slightly off-kilter from each other, in a figure-eight pattern designed to give an “an allusion to the vortex of tornados and the whirlwind of cyclones.” With two bridges crossing the watch face and hours and minutes encircling each dial, the front makes for an impressive statement, while the inner mechanics can be seen through the navy blue tinted glass. Coming in a rose gold or steel casing with available diamond options, these watches are engraved with the brand’s double Z logo on the watch crown and are water resistant up to 100 meters. Each collection is available in limited numbered editions of 888 pieces and is available exclusively at the Colette shop in Paris.
While most women are dying to be as chic as Kate Middleton or as timeless as Jackie O., guys are usually channeling one man—and one man only—James Bond. The phrase “women want him and men want to be him” has never been truer than it is with Agent 007.
Armed with white and pale shades delicately laced with floral designs, the Dior Haute Couture Fall 2014 collection seemed like something out of a historical dream—with a few oddities thrown in for good measure.
When we first heard of bags made of cork we were understandably skeptical. Why would anyone want to tote around what is essentially a bulletin board on their arm? But with the durability, sustainability and light flexibility of the material, it almost makes sense that someone would try to make a better fabric from it—and someone did
We love shopping, we love giving to charities and we love women empowerment, so any brand that can combine all three is already a favorite in our book. A new site called Project Gravitas is doing just that with a line of little black dresses that are hoping to be the most comfortable, wearable, transitional pieces in your closet.
With Memorial Day long gone and Fourth of July weekend already here, it’s officially summertime. And whether you’re planning to visit exotic islands, sunbathe on the deck of your yacht or just spend the weekend with the kids at the beach, you’ll want to do it in style—and nobody does style like the French.
Despite plus-size apparel being so stunningly shunned by the fashion industry, sales have been on a steady rise over the last three years, proving that there might be more to this size 12 thing than designers are willing to acknowledge.
Last week, Jessica Minh Anh made history again. The model and entrepreneur, known for producing outré fashion shows at some of the world’s most unconventional venues, staged her latest presentation at One World Trade Center.
Fashion lovers and beauty fans are all going to flip for the second collaboration by Jason Wu and Lancôme. Teaming up for a pre-fall 2014 collection, the highly-anticipated line may not be the crazy hyped-up mess that Rihanna Loves MAC was, but it’s definitely a must-have for the more demure, over-30 set.
This is where we would normally insert our obligatory “winter is coming” joke, but with Kit Harington looking so serious it hardly seems the time or the place. Starring in the new Jimmy Choo campaign (that we’ve been waiting for since March), Harington’s new videos and ads premiered today making women the world over swoon at the smoldering stares and raw sexuality of the British heartthrob.
For some guys style is hard to come by, while others can’t help but look completely fabulous. If you’re not one of the latter (or maybe you are, but need something smart to add to your closet), you might want to try the snazzy cuff links at Mont Blanc.
Very rarely does a fashion film come along that has the right to actually be called a film—and we’re not talking about the absence of famous names or play time length. Some, like Proenza Schouler’s latest work with Dazed magazine, lend themselves to great cinematography, a compelling storyline and an excellent showcase of fashion.
While Forbes’ lists tend to be serious endeavors with power, influence, money and popularity running rampant through the ranks, the Celebrity 100 List feels a little more like electing prom king and queen; we’re cheering on our favorites and wondering about the glamorous lives they must lead
Sweating. Grunting. Cursing. We’ll be honest, working out is not the chicest activity in the world. Sure, television might portray gym bunnies casually gliding along on their elliptical machines with not a care in the world, but staying fit it never that gorgeous.
Marc by Marc Jacobs has just released the Fall 2014 campaign, the first for new creative director and design director Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley. To create buzz around their new collection, the two took to the social media platform Instagram to find models for their upcoming campaign using the hashtag #CastMeMarc.
At first glance the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing may not have much to do with fashion (except for those super-chic spacesuits of course), but aside from all their tech gear, telescopes and research equipment, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong both brought their OMEGA Speedmater Professional timepieces with them.
For fashion we normally look to Paris, Tokyo or New York for up-and-coming names of sartorial genius, but brilliance can be found anywhere—even the streets of Lima, Peru. Designer Claudia Bertolero creates pieces that are distinctive representations of her culture, passions and heritage, and while not meant for all women, the line encompasses some truly daring styles that we would be hard pressed to find on the streets of Fashion Week.
A day at the museum might sound a little trite for some luxurious, globe-trotting fashion mavens, but with the official announcement of Foundation Louis Vuitton opening in Paris’ Bois de Boulogne, an afternoon perusing the art and history of the famed French fashion house suddenly seems like a must-do.
Those with an affinity for classic movies might immediately recognize the name Jim Stark and associate it with James Dean’s emotionally-charged character in Rebel Without A Cause, but for those who didn’t grow up in that era (or didn’t have parents who had a healthy addiction to TCM) it might just be the name of a cool new accessory brand
It’s been three years since Gisele Bündchen last posed for an Isabel Marant campaign, but you couldn’t tell any time has passed by looking at these stunning shots. Taking a first look at her upcoming F/W 2014 campaign with the French fashion house, Bündchen can be found wearing some of the designer’s more menswear-inspired pieces including loose fitting trousers, heavy overcoats and bulky sweaters.
With the new fragrances of summer, Acqua di Parma has released Ginepro di Sardegna, a perfume based on the Italian island Sardinia, set in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. The sixth collection to join the Blu Mediterraneo line, Ginepro di Sardegna is a deep scent filled with traces of the local flora including juniper, bergamot, cypress and pimento.
For most brides-to-be the wedding is really all about the love and special moments between friends and family, and—okay who are we kidding, it is literally all about the dress. Not a single woman could enjoy the day if she doesn’t feel like the most beautiful and important person in the room. And why shouldn’t she? It’s her wedding.
