High Fashion BvS (And Civil War?)

The Valentino Super H and Star-Studded Collections are now in stores. Suddenly our tax returns don’t look that impressive.

I previously blogged about The Star Studded capsule collection, a Wonder Woman inspired collab with Spider Gwen Paltrow’s obscenely indulgent Goop Market pop-up. Well, everyone is now welcome to shop the full line, which includes a few extra pieces like a studded ballet flat, a signature of the label, and THIS STAR PRINTED DRESS WITH STUDDED LEATHER COLLAR OMG!!!

We Can be (Valentino) HEROes

A few weeks ago, you learned about the superhero splendor that is the Valentino X Goop “Wonder Woman” collection. A capsule that was only a small part of a larger collection set to be released in April. Well, here now  is yet another glimpse of how Valentino plans to superpower your wardrobe. Continue reading

Valentino X Goop: Wonder Woman

“The Modern Woman is a Wonder Woman.”

-Gwyneth Paltrow

My eyes widened as I approached the shop–catching site of the name Goop Mrkt first. My pace quickened, then slowed almost as quickly, my eagerness threatening to burn through the thin veil of hubris I intended to hide the truth of my bank account behind. Then, I veered right through glass doors that had only just opened 38 minutes prior. With the seeming ease of Wondy hopping into an invisible jet.

And there it was, in all its handcrafted, star-studded glory….

The Blonds + Catwoman

the-blonds-autumn-fall-winter-2014-nyfw2

Season after season The Blonds are out to prove that they have more fun. And we are ever so grateful they take us along for the ride.

Remember last year’s Spring show, when the design duo drew inspiration from several iconic “Blonds” spanning all of time and space? Tinkerbell, Barbarella, Tweety, C3P0?

Well this time, they got all the material they needed from another widely recognizable blonde. The world’s sexiest most legendary crazy cat lady: Michelle Pfeiffer as Selina Kyle. That’s right: CATWOMAN!

ENDitorial: VOGUE and Nostalgia for Classic Superman

Once upon a time before this latest abomination of a film, Superman was…. Superman. He wasn’t big on the obscenely monumental destruction of public property,

he actually wore red shorts,

and oh yeah… Spoiler alert: HE WASN’T KILLING PEOPLE.

Before the New 52, he was even happily married to Lois Lane.

For this month’s enditorial, we’re taking a nostalgic look back at the All- American Superfamily as depicted by Vogue. Shot by Mario Testino, top male model David Gandy portrays the Man of Steel in this fashion spread, not tearing towns apart, but simply being the all American boyscout we all love on a family outing. While supermodel (naturally) Carolyn Murphy paints Lois Lane as a super mom to her super darling. The women share the spotlight with supes sporting chic, retro feminine, near identical looks.

Luxurious and lady-like,  heart-melting and super sweet.

PRADA + FAIRIES

 
Prada is a name synonymous with luxury, quality, and innovation. Even in the cyclical world of fashion, leave it up to Miuccia Prada to reinvent the wheel, and offer a largely unexpected twist on the RTW collection, season after season.
For Spring 2008, she playfully mixed the old—late 60s, early 70s silhouettes—and the new—playful cutaways, and the art nouveau-meets surrealist-meets manga masterpieces by the profound James Jean, printed in segments onto silks and chiffons. Gown-up, yet whimsical, pants, tunics, skirts, dresses, all marched down the runway, to sing a song of fairies.
Not enough can be said about how masterful James Jean is (update: I have recently discovered FABLES. Those of you who are familiar with the series, have seen Jean’s work grace the covers of this much loved story!) . More than eye candy, his work is porn for illustrators. And if you didn’t happen to snag one of those highly coveted Prada fairy bags (I know I didn’t), I now invite you to click through the images below and see up close for yourself.
Make like Miuccia: take it in, be inspired, and create. No fairy dust required.
