    New York Fashion Week: Kenneth Cole Fall/Winter 2013 Runway Show

    Februar 14th, 2013

    It’s been a while since Kenneth Cole got started working in fashion and selling shoes from his trunk. Last week, he celebrated the brand’s 30th anniversary with a return to the runway at New York Fashion Week after a 7 year hiatus. With a brilliantly themed event, “Social Netwalking”, focusing on the drastically evolved world, Cole’s Fall 2013 runway show was set in an unfinished industrial building. The fast walking models and the hard music conveyed the tone of the collection: Futuristic Industrial Germany met the New York City businessman on-the-go, ever so chic, edgy and sophisticated. The clothes were rendered mostly in black and gray with some military green and burgundy, along with lots of leather details and metallics. An array of outerwear and knitted skirts with an air of casual chic was also shown at his show.

    New York Fashion Week: Mara Hoffman Spring 2013 Runway Show

    September 10th, 2012

    ‘Aloha’ from New York! That’s been Mara Hoffman’s message behind her Spring/Summer 2013 collection shown last Saturday during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. A self-described city girl by birth, but island girl at heart, the spirit of the Hawaiian islands portrays Mara Hoffman’s newest collection: tropical, color-blocked and vibrant colors were seen on swimsuits, chiffon maxi dresses, skirts, safari shirts and bermudas. Interpreting the idea quite literally, Hoffman also topped each model’s look with a palm headpiece to drive home the collection’s theme.

    Overall, Mara Hoffman’s collection was a great day at the beach, with a burst of colors (blues, pinks, oranges) and gorgeous bright prints. The designer made her message very clear and delivered to the type of carefree, beautiful and stylish island girl we all desire to be at some point.

    März 7th, 2012

    Jade Simone Greene who works as a Sales Account Executive for Mondani, a designer, manufacturer and marketer of luxury handbags and accessories knew exactly how to be fashionable. Her dress with the cropped leather jacket on top and these cute booties looked so great together – not to mention her accessories, a Z Spoke Zac Posen handbag and the Michael Kors watch. We always love a casual/chic dress combination. Nice streetstyle Jade.

    New York Fashion Week: Nomia Fall 2012 Presentation

    Februar 16th, 2012

    Last night we attended the Nomia Fall 2012 presentation which took place at “The Box” at Lincoln Center in New York.

    The focus of Nomia’s collection was to show the chic, sophisticated and empowered woman. Yara Flinn, Nomia’s head designer therefore was showing a lot of classy dresses – long sleeved, without sleeves and sometimes with a finishing on the top that looked like a blouse. There were just a few leather jackets, two very sexy, seethrough leggings and even a slouchy, trendy pants in her collection. I would have loved to see more of these egdy designs which in my opinion would have made the collection much more outstanding.
    The color palette was actually great – she used a lot of different colors like beige, red, olive green, blue and even pink which coddled up the too classy designs.

    Curious to see her Fall 2012 designs?

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #20 – George Wilson

    Juni 24th, 2011

    “I’m wearing vintage, I don’t do a lot of lables” says our next dress of the week, George Wilson. He looks gorgeous in his vintage clothes and vintage jewelry – all bought in different little vintage boutiques in SoHo, New York! We totally agree, it doesn’t have to be only famous brands and lables for a cute outfit – as we can see, it also works like this. Perfect streetstyle George!
