After Giambattista Valli sent all 45 looks down the runway with sunglasses for his Fall 2014 Couture show yesterday, I thought that was a pretty badass move. We rarely see sunnies for couture, let alone on every single model in one show. Emoji claps for Giambattista. And a thumbs up for giving me an excuse to talk about my favorite accessory…
After ironically raving about how French girls do it better just days before the biggest American holiday of the year, I thought I’d give the US of A some love today and share with you some of my favorite US-based designers…who actually all happen part of the CFDA — The Council of Fashion Designers of AMERICA (or as I like to say ‘Merica but pronounced mer-kuh).
What do pool slides and pineapples have in common? Of course they’re both perfect for warm weather (especially if the pineapples involve some sort of alcoholic counterpart) but they also happen to be a theme in [what I think] is one of the best Resort ’15 collections (that you can actually buy right now…)
Can you guess the designer behind this Fall 2014 collection? Could be Derek Lam, Altuzarra, even Phillip Lim. But that’s oh so wrong.
If you haven’t heard the news, it looks like Olivier Theyskens is out at Theory, so you know what that means? FRANTICALLY BUY ALL THE THEYSKENS YOU CAN BECAUSE IT COULD BE WORTH MILLIONS.
