Alexander Wang Does US Proud

Move over Marant, it’s Wang’s turn for some H&M love. If you haven’t heard the news, H&M announced at Coachella this weekend that Alexander Wang would be their next designer collaboration. Now, a high/low collab is barely news any more, but there’s something extra special about this one…

So You’re Not At Fashion Week?

With fashion week (well at least Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week) starting today, I thought it would be fun to do something a little different…a not so typical kick-off-to-fashion-week post.

BUT you don’t have to be on the other side of the world or in NYC to have a good time.

If you’re not currently running across Manhattan in 6-inch platforms hoping to get at least one non blurry runway photo on Instagram, here’s five fashion week alternatives to help you overcome that FOMO.

Alexis Bittar at Neiman Marcus

If you ever wanted to get to know jewelry designer Alexis Bittar then today’s your lucky day.
