    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #69 – Loraine

    Mai 23rd, 2013

    I can not get over how much I love Loraine’s look. Her rocker-chic style is right up my alley. She was wearing a sharp cut, off white biker jacket from Zara over a faux leather oversize Rag & Bone sweater paired with some J-Brand jeans and Kurt Geiger chelsea boots. One of the many highlights of Loraine’s outfit was her Alexander Wang handbag made of perforated leather – simple but edgy. To round off her look Loraine accessorized with a pair of Oliver Peoples retro sunglasses. All together a sexy-chic combination of black and white.

    Mai 9th, 2012

    It’s a little hard to see Sonya’s outfit since it was so dark inside at Lincoln Center. But as always I’m going to help you what our “Dress of the Week” is wearing: a beautiful gold Zara dress along with leggings and shoes from Aerosoles and a gorgeous Chanel handbag as her accessory. Thank you Sonya.

    April 25th, 2012

    When we saw Alice, the first thing we noticed were her incredible sexy spike boots. She later revealed that they were from Jeffrey Campbell and she chose to combine them with a little fur piece from Topshop and skinny Zara pants. The color of her lipstick was also just amazing. Great job Alice!

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #36 – Elizabeth Kott

    April 11th, 2012

    Elizabeth, all “street-styled” in Zara, her little fur jacket looked great on her by the way, combined vintage with high-end and fast fashion very well. We especially loved her Penelope & Coco shoes. Unfortunately we couldn’t understand the brand of her handbag but does it really matter? Nice outfit overall.

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #19 – Luke Destin

    Juni 8th, 2011

    We just couldn’t resist to tape Luke a couple of months ago. We met him backstage at Couture Fashion Week at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. He knew exactly how to combine fast fashion with high-end fashion skillfully. We loved his entire outfit but he just nailed it with his black patent leather shoes designed by Yves Saint Laurent with the namesake handbag. All thumbs up Luke, that’s very New York Streetstyle at its best!

Crystal Dawli is our dress of the week and therefore our beautiful memory of this past summer. Her colorful and vivid Catherine Malandrino dress immediately puts you back a couple of month when you didn’t have to think of heavy coats, scarfs, gloves and all the other arctic equipment.

    Fast Fashion

    April 5th, 2010

    The term ‘Fast Fashion’ describes a retail model of distributing fashion design trends both quickly and cheaply to a mass audience. Besides its distribution related meaning the term basically refers to the speed of how fast designer clothes seen on the runways around the globe get copied and interpreted by today’s mainstream retail stores. The philosophy of fast fashion producers is to give less affluent but fashion interested people an opportunity to shop contemporary designs to a reasonable price. ‘Zara‘ has always been spearheading this approach, although there were other brands before, such as ‘Benetton‘, trying to push the concept into the fashion market. Today, fast fashion retailers surround us everywhere through brands like Primark, Forever 21 or H&M. The latter caused sudden upheaval when it announced its first fast fashion co-operation with a high-end designer in 2004, featuring a special Karl Lagerfeld edition at selected ‘H&M’ stores.
