When fashion stories involve grandmothers it usually starts off by saying “these aren’t your grandma’s [insert old lady item here]” but today these actually ARE your g-ma’s Chanel slingbacks…
We’re now officially 25% of the way through fashion month. Now that we’re done with New York, let’s take a look at NYFW SS16 (New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 for those who dislike abbreviations).
Whether or not you want to acknowledge it…Fall is just around the corner. And fashion people LOVE to tell you how much they LOVE it (layering! knits! boots! oh my!)…until Fall turns into Winter and then your boots are covered in slush and salt and you can’t wait to show off your pedicure once again. So while we’re still wearing minimal clothing, let’s talk about the Fall ’15 ad campaigns.
It was announced the other day that Zendaya would be launching a shoe line with her stylist, Law Roach, and although nothing about that sentence excites me…it did get me thinking. What other stylists out there have collaborated with their clients? Or come out with their own brands in general?
Now that the Fall 2015 Couture shows have come to a close (and it’s Bastille Day…yay for French things!) I thought we could learn some lessons from these collections. We’re not all part of the lucky few who get to actually wear these works of art, but we can get some inspiration from them…and just pretend like we’re couturing ourselves for a minute, right?
