Runway Report: Erdem SS18

In a slightly unexpected twist, Erdem, a brand known for polite and distinctly formal structures, presents its sexiest collection to date. Yes, there were still opulent frocks with ornate metallic sequins and high-necked Victorian collars, but this time, the clothes seeped sex appeal – from sheer lace gowns with bare breasts on show to strapless bobble frocks showing models’ bare necks and shoulders, followed by authoritarian pencil skirts, grand opera coats in emerald brocade and precisely tailored jackets in heritage tweeds. It was a complete transition into a new world, one where as Moralıoğlu explains backstage, “The Queen Elizabeth had gone to New York. Or, what if Dorothy Dandridge had come to Buckingham Palace? I mean, what might she have worn?”. Even the hair and … Read More

Lines We Love: SENTALER

If there’s one thing we’re always on the look-out for, especially being based in NYC, it’s an amazing outerwear brand. Something chic and beautiful but with a level of quality that will also keep us warm for seasons to come. Fortunately, the SENTALER collection had recently come to our attention, (thanks to a fabulous deskside appointment) and with Winter right around the corner, we couldn’t wait to share more about this modern and sophisticated brand. SENTALER first came to be when designer and Creative Director, Bojana Sentaler, traveled to South America and discovered the beautiful fabric that comes from shearing Peruvian alpacas. Having to withstand much colder temperatures up in the Andes mountains, these animals produce a thick fur that has microscopic… Read More

My Five Favorite Pairs of Sock Booties

Sock boots and booties are all the rage and I’m all about it. They’re flattering on many and look so chic with pants, skirts and dresses. Mine are Balenciaga and definitely a splurge, but there is zero buyers remorse. That actually happens quite often (after trying on with 18498 things) resulting in a return. From the moment I laid my eyes on them, they’ve been haunting my dreams. Then image my disappointment when I was told “they’re hard to track down..” I don’t know about you all, but when I receive that type of news, it makes me want that item even more. It’s like a boy playing hard to get! Finally, after a meeting in midtown two weeks ago… Read More

Runway Report: Antonio Berardi SS18

The creative genius that is Antonio Berardi looked back in time as he prepared for his SS18 collection. Like many Europeans, his family moved over from Sicily and grafted with what they had to make a living, and live well. His collection represented his history and his and his family’s pride in always presenting your best self to the world. Relatives would send clothing from America, and they’d sew together what they had to create something new. Fast forward to a Monday in London and Berardi’s models were adorned in mix-media fine tailoring and silhouettes – a type of ode to arts and crafts. Suiting in pink, olive green, gray checks and black set the tone for smart workwear with a crafty twist, … Read More

Tech Must Have: Olivia’s Fashionmoji’s are Here!

They’re finally here! One of the most anticipated launches we’ve had yet, the Olivia Palermo emoji app, Fashionmoji, has arrived! For years, our own OP has been talking about having her own emojis, discussing what they’d look like, what they would consist of and now, thanks to Tanooki Labs, this dream has become a reality. The app has both a piece of Olivia’s life (like a passport to travel the world, pieces from her stunning Banana Republic collection and of course a very adorable Mr. Butler), as well as expressive cartoon emojis to signal how you’re feeling. These little characters work for everything; from a day of being pampered (bubble baths, face masks and pedicures for instance), needing a sick day, working … Read More

Runway Report: Burberry Fall 2017

The checks are back, we repeat the checks are back! Christopher Bailey recharged the beige, white, black and red check-print of season’s past this London Fashion Week, and weaved it into what can only be described as laid-back, London street-chic. Models were brought into the styling fold this season and empowered to weigh in on their own looks. According to British Vogue, Bailey commented: “I was intrigued by everybody wanting everything to be really casual and really broken down.” Allowing the models to take charge and own their looks taught Mr. Bailey just how the young crowd likes to assemble their high-end pieces; “They loved a special piece. If it felt too done, too refined, too sophisticated it was, … Read More
