Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year. "Living Coral"

Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year is…..Living Coral

Pantone, in keeping with its trend from the past twenty years, has announced its 2019’s Color of the Year. “Living Coral” is sure to be the shade showing up across store shelves all over the nation; in everything from clothing to accessories to interior decor.

Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year. "Living Coral"

An Optimistic Pick

This vibrant, warm hue combines shades of salmon and rose. It reflects a sense of optimism for the coming year; and Pantone’s published description of the shade of pinkish-orange seems to communicate that. Pantone announced that, “Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.”  It looks like Pantone is going to be looking to this tone as inspiration for the upcoming year.

Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year. "Living Coral"

Many sources seem to agree that this color is sure to be a hit with younger generations especially; which means it will likely show up in online photos and social media everywhere. This nature-inspired pick is in keeping with 2017’s choice, “Greenery.” Both draw from natural hues to shape future trends. However, not everyone is thrilled with this symbolism; in an era of climate change, several are saying that the pick is a bit too ironic considering the current state of actual coral reefs.

Hint: it hasn’t been a good year for coral.

Where You Can Find Living Coral In 2019

Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year. "Living Coral"

Pantone’s Color of the Year traditionally has been a hit across fashion trends and interior design, and this year’s pick is likely to be no exception. “Living Coral” is likely to show up in interior design magazines, boutique racks, and unique accessories everywhere. You might even see it on wheels — with some one billion bicycles on the road today, there’s bound to be a cyclist or two with an eye for coral. Also keep an eye out for this hue on social media; a recent Live Well survey found full-time workers and Gen-Yers spend an average eight hours every weekday in front of a screen, meaning that once word of this popular hue spreads, it’s likely to be everywhere online.

As 2018 draws to a close and 2019 gets underway, expect to see “Living Coral” anywhere and everywhere, from fashion to accessories to home decor. How do you plan to make use of this vibrant hue in your fashion picks for the new year?

STS Blue Denim Jackets

Give the Gift of Personalized Fashion With sts blue Denim Jackets

In an age where expressing your individuality is very important, many people are stepping away from fast fashion. But how do you make a classic fashion item your own? Take, for instance, the classic denim or “jean jacket”; this iconic outerwear is simply a basic jacket with an all-denim construction. Although design details such as fringe, patches, and paint can be used to customize denim jackets, personalization is different. That’s why we were so excited to try the free personalization that is offered with sts blue Denim Jackets.

STS Blue Denim Jackets

That’s right, when you order one of the sts blue Denim Jackets, you can have it personalized for free. Make your own or giftable sts blue denim jacket unique with custom embroidery. What better gift to give a loved one than their name, favorite phrase, hashtag, etc on their own jean jacket this holiday season. We’re a very proud owner of a personalized sts blue Oversize Boyfriend Denim Jacket which we highlighted in our sts blue Fall 2018 Collection highlight (see it below again).

All sts blue denim jackets are made with 100% cotton, boasts copper hardware, and are available in a variety of washes. The sts blue personalization is done with embroidery. You choose from 2 different fonts and a choice of 5 colors that are perfect to make your personalized monogram stand out. Each embroidery is placed on the back of the sts blue denim jackets and can fit up to 10 characters. You can choose something cute, funny, or outrageous. It’s your chance to make the statement you want to. Just make sure your jacket style, size and personalized design are correct at the time of ordering as custom, personalized items are final sale items.

sts blue has some terrific denim jackets available now. Along with the Oversize Boyfriend Denim Jacket we got, we’re loving their new Oversize Long Boyfriend Denim Jacket in Sand Canyon wash. This dark grey vintage wash jean jacket features a longer than usual body length, a shadow hemline, antique copper hardware, and deconstructive details.

STS Blue Denim Jackets

No matter the jacket you get or gift, adding personalization adds a very special touch to it. You will love it and most importantly, they will love it. Do you know someone who would love to be gifted a personalized sts blue denim jacket this holiday season?

sts blue Fall 2018 Collection: Cure Your Closet Woes w/ Jean Therapy

One of our favorite things about the cooler seasons is it’s the perfect time to wear denim jackets. And what’s better than a great denim jacket paired with some must-have jeans. For the fall season, it’s all about adding great denim pieces to your wardrobe and this fall’s denim trends are easy to pull off with the pieces from the sts blue Fall 2018 Collection. This season, it pays to be a little denim obsessed.

From straight ankle-length jeans to high-rise jeans, a return of button fly jeans, and frayed hem skinny jeans are just a few of the hot denim styles seen in the sts blue Fall 2018 Collection. sts blue offers a variety of jeans and jean jackets in several washes. From the lightest Jenson (blue) and Lamont (black) washes to the darkest Ranlett (blue) and Black washes, and so much in between.

New standouts from the sts blue Fall 2018 collection we’re obsessed with include the Cara Vintage-inspired Slim Straight Ankle Jeans; the Emma Ankle Skinny with Cut Off Stepped Hem and a “give me what I want” side stripe (or go bright with a neon stripe); and the Ashley High Rise Slim Fit Skinny with Exposed Button fly.

When it comes to their denim jackets, we’re very much obsessed with the Oversize Denim Boyfriend Jackets. With very cool details such as color blocking, ruffles, and fraying, this iconic item is instantly modernized. Our favorite thing about sts blue’s denim jackets is the option for free custom embroidery to make it your own. We tried sts blue’s free custom embroidery on our Oversize Boyfriend Denim Jacket, which we got in Mandarin Wash. We are so in love with the result of our customization (we even decorated it with some pins we got at the Denim Days festival). Yes, you read that correctly, sts blue offers free custom embroidery on their denim jackets. That is an amazing gift idea, because who wouldn’t want something special and customized to their style! Check out our custom jacket below:

Every pair of jeans tells a story; what will your story be in these denim pieces from the sts blue Fall 2018 collection?

Kut from the Kloth Launches Their TRY5 Denim-on-Demand Service

We don’t know about you guys but we hate trying on clothes when we’re out shopping.  Yes, even in the era of dressing room selfies, we’d much rather try clothes at home. Call it laziness, undressing under bad lighting and mirrors, or the fear of being a victim of hidden cameras. Whatever the reason we much prefer to try on our purchases at home. Of course with retail stores, you have to have time and patience to return any unwanted and unflattering items. One of our most exasperating experiences is shopping for jeans. First, trying to find your size, a great fit, color and/or treatment you want, then there’s the process of trying those on. It’s quite rare that we leave the store with more than one pair of jeans we like, which is why we’re excited about Nordstrom brand, Kut from the Kloth’s TRY5 Denim-on-Demand service.

With the TRY5 Denim-on-Demand service, trying on and buying your favorite denim has never been easier. The genius service allows you to select any five jeans from the Kut from the Kloth website for free to try in the comfort of your own home.  No more dealing with fitting rooms, bad lighting, or other issues that arise from trying on jeans in stores. Select your five favorite jeans, try them on, keep your must-haves and send back the pairs you don’t love within seven days with the included return label. You will only get charged for the jeans you keep. The best part, Kut from the Kloth sends you a reminder when your seven days are up; just in case you get busy and forget.

For our Kut from the Kloth TRY5 Denim-on-Demand experience, we tried the following styles: Diana Relaxed Fit Skinny, Catherine Boyfriend, Diana Fab Ab Skinny, Diana Kurvy Relaxed Fit Skinny, and Stevie Straight Leg.

Diana Relaxed Fit Skinny

Catherine Boyfriend

Diana Fab Ab Skinny

Diana Kurvy Relaxed Fit Skinny

Stevie Straight Leg

With Kut from the Kloth’s TRY5 Denim-on-Demand Service, there is no subscription or fees. It’s just an easy, private shopping experience to find and buy your perfect denim fits. Out of the five we initially tried, we fell in love with three styles with our favorite fit and wash being the Diana Relaxed Fit Skinny. We love how it felt and how it looked and look forward to getting more of that fit in other washes.

Kut from the Kloth has also partnered with non-profit Peace 4 Animals; a wonderful organization that boasts on-going efforts to save Africa’s “big five”; lions, leopards, rhinoceros, elephants, and Cape buffalo from extinction in the wild.

“We are proud to support Peace 4 Animals by helping bring awareness to the harm these animals face, and support Katie Cleary in all her efforts. Katie brings much-needed attention to this important cause.  She loves the Kut from the Kloth style and fit so for us, it’s a perfect match,” states Jonathan Greenberg, President of Kut from the Kloth.

INIFD and London School of Trend's Vibrant India NYFW Show

INIFD and London School of Trend’s Vibrant India NYFW Show

Every fashion week, we find ourselves gravitating more and more to fashion shows that feature up-and-coming fashion designer shows. To see the creativity, inspired aesthetics, and boldness we sometimes feel are lacking in big name shows. One of our favorites this season was the eclectic INIFD and London School of Trend’s Vibrant India NYFW Show. Based in India, the Inter-National Institute of Fashion Design (INIFD) in association with the London School of Trends, returned for another successful season at New York Fashion Week with vibrant and stunning Spring/Summer 19 collections.

INIFD and London School of Trend's Vibrant India NYFW Show

The Vibrant India NYFW Show featured a curated collection from 54 specially selected designs from across the 120 INIFD institutes in India. The collection boasted innovative silhouettes and pioneering style illuminating the runway in a colorful kaleidoscope of customary textiles and embellishments. The result is an eclectic array of trans-seasonal pieces showcasing the organization’s creative departments across the country. We wish we had the opportunity to meet some of the designers but unfortunately, that would not be the case during this very busy NYFW.

The show allowed designers to present the perfect opportunity to marry the great traditional craftsmanship of specialist Indian crafts from around the nation. It featured modern graphic printing which echoes the traditional tie-dye technique, to the imagery of the beguiling Indian landscape. Experts of traditional Kutch embroidery, Phulkari, Kasuti and Chikankari play a part in marrying tradition to modern designed silhouettes.

INIFD and London School of Trend's Vibrant India NYFW Show

INIFD has created a stamp on London Fashion Week. With this showing, they are quickly establishing their presence at NYFW. INIFD’s aim is to create a platform for emerging Indian designers and the Indian fashion industry. By promoting the innovative design aesthetic and craftsmanship amongst the bustling fast fashion landscape, they are doing just that.

We really enjoyed the vibrancy of the Vibrant India NYFW Show. It’s only further set aflame our desire to attend India’s Fashion Week. We’d love to know your thoughts. What do you think of the INIFD and London School of Trend’s Vibrant India NYFW Show?

 

McDonald’s and Gert-Johan Coetzee Big Mac Collection

I’m lovin’ it: The McDonald’s and Gert-­Johan Coetzee Big Mac Collection

It seems McDonald’s is making moves, not just in the retail beverage aisle, but in fashion as well. In celebration of the Big Mac’s 50th birthday, the fast food giant teamed up with a remarkable South African Fashion Designer. Teaming up with Gert-­Johan Coetzee, the fast food brand and designer launched a playful streetwear collection which debuted at South African Fashion Week. Of course, the McDonald’s and Gert-­Johan Coetzee Big Mac Collection isn’t the first time the Golden Arches has appeared in fashion. Back in 2014, Jeremy Scott incorporated a number of McDonald’s inspired garments in his first collection for Moschino.

McDonald’s and Gert-Johan Coetzee Big Mac Collection

However, the Big Mac Collection marks the first time McDonald’s has officially authorized the use of its iconography in fashion. The streetwear collection includes sequinned T-shirts with the signature golden arches, sweatpants and cropped sweat tops, cute slogan T-­shirts, and a spectacular gold Tinsel jacket we’d kill for. It’s no surprise that this collection has received rave reviews for Coetzee…..just look at the stunning pieces!

McDonald’s and Gert-Johan Coetzee Big Mac Collection

The acclaimed designer is already known for his stunning red carpet couture. His gowns have already been worn by celebrities such as Kelly Rowland and many others. Coetzee is the mentor on South Africa’s version of Project Runway and has always been active in doing good. He also has his own scholarship program for aspiring fashion designers, consequently and wonderfully impacting the future of fashion.

“Having the opportunity to play with the iconography of such a huge global brand with the end goal of doing good, is such an honour, and it is a bonus that it is helping put South African fashion on the map globally,” says Coetzee.

The Big Mac Collection collection also includes a kid’s version, aptly named the Big Mac Kids Collection. This mini-me collection allows parents and their kids to enjoy the twinning fashion trend. All the proceeds of the sale of the streetwear collection go to the Ronald McDonald House Charity. The McDonald’s Gert-­Johan Coetzee Big Mac Collection is only available in limited quantities on www.shopgert.com.
