When it comes to jewelry, do you go for costume or fine? Or perhaps mix it up? I’d say a majority like to keep it mixed, which is exactly why designers are starting to dabble in both categories. So now if you want a $150 bracelet or a $1,500 bracelet…you can get it from the same designer! HALLELUJAH!
Balenciaga City. Givenchy Nightingale. Proenza Schouler PS1. Chanel 2.55. What do these all have in common? They’re classic handbags, signature to their designer. But fashion seems to be moving in this direction where we don’t necessarily need a big designer name attached to our bag to make the investment. The perfect example of this is what I like to call the new classic — M2MALLETIER.
Ever since my discovery of these dainty Gabriela Artigas earrings in Sydney last February, I’ve been hooked (literally) on hook earrings. As the months go by, I notice more and more designers getting on board with this. Whether it’s a bold statement (like what Delfina Delettrez and Givenchy are known for) or something much smaller, these types of earrings are having a moment. So why not embrace it?
With a new designer collaboration announced at least every month, the whole idea of these collaborations has become less and less exciting (something we discussed this time last year). But every once in a while, someone will do the unexpected and really bring something unique to the table in this new-ish fashion category. The latest to do that? It involves a brand that’s just killing it plus a classic comic strip that you can’t help but love…
Even before “cool sneakers” were a thing, we still saw them every once in a while on the streets of fashion weeks worldwide. Clearly worn by the “early adapters” (they don’t follow trends, they start them) and now everyone has gotten on board. Today we’re going back to basics with one of the most popular types of footwear right now –white sneakers.
