HAute Couture Fashion Week FALL-WINTER 2018-2019

Haute Couture Fashion Week: Armine Ohanyan Fall-Winter 2018-2019

Once again the City of Light was once again shining as legions of exquisite fashions captured the attention of the world. It is Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris. We begin our enchantment with the stunning Armine Ohanyan Fall-Winter 2018-2019 collection. A couture collection made in France, entirely handmade, and intimately inspired by nature, showing the natural elements in all their forms. Ice, crystallization, rain, wind, dew, and roots are the elements and inspiration that beget this entrancing haute couture fashion week collection. Each shape of this women’s fashion collection represents one of these elements. At the same time a climate evolution where each season brings its unique beauty and a gentle and mysterious atmosphere.

The collection’s inspiration is described as “Crystallized in these surroundings, the Human Being becomes Nature. Nature is everlasting, nothing can stop it. It is the true beauty, perfection. For depicting this cycle of evolution, haute couture designer Armine Ohanyan uses the new technologies such as 3D printing or materials crafting, which play an important role in her creative process. Her art investigations never end, like the movement that she shows in its different forms and their ranges of colors and materials. Her creations are futuristic and modern, with a wide beauty touch.”

For us, this stunning Haute Couture Fashion Week collection evoked the many elements that describe women in general – beautiful, fluid, bold, and surprising. We were immediately drawn to the vibrant colors, multilayered textures, and arresting aesthetic. Everything seems to be in constant movement – never stagnant. Again, a perfect description of being a woman.

NYFW: Hayley Elsaesser X My Little Pony Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

It seems our childhood favorites are continuing to make some wonderful modern day moves. We recently highlighted the Care Bears collaboration with Sprinkles Cupcakes, now we bring you news on what’s happening in the magical world of Equestria. As we eagerly await the new animated My Little Pony movie, we can bind our time with the Hayley Elsaesser X My Little Pony Fall/Winter 2017 Collection, which made it debut during NYFW the Shows.

The Canadian designer teamed up with Hasbro for a sartorial interpretation of My Little Pony as a high fashion streetwear collection, using New York and its many unique style personalities as its backdrop. Showing looks for both men and women, the Hayley Elsaesser X My Little Pony collection is all bold prints and colors while reinforcing positive body image, creativity, and unapologetic individuality.

Using bright hues, contrasting patterns, and visual imagery in classic, wearable silhouettes, the Hayley Elsaesser X My Little Pony show presentation is one to remember. The fresh and timeless wardrobe staples of Hayley Elsaesser’s eponymous collection allow customers to stand out in a crowd and express themselves through her clothing. Hayley’s designs are a tongue-in-cheek rebellion against the status quo. Whether you are street-style obsessed or a runway fashion maven, this fashion brand is inclusive to all shapes, sizes and walks of life. Favorite looks from the Hayley Elsaesser X My Little Pony show presentation include the Rainbow Dash A-Line Dress, the pink and black sun and moon overalls, and the heart locket-printed dress (featured directly above).

Hayley tapped cosmetic powerhouse MAC Cosmetics as an official show sponsor, with glam directed by acclaimed Key Makeup Artist, Melissa Gibson. The presentation’s unique nails were fashioned by Gracie J of The Editorial Nail, and the presentation’s newsworthy coifs created by Lead Hair Stylist Mischa G. and the Bumble and bumble team. The mix of dark and pastel-hued footwear were provided by Timberland. For more information on the Hayley Elsaesser X My Little Pony Fall/Winter 2017 Collection, visit www.hayleyelsaesser.com.

Fall Style Evolution: Lola and Sophie Fall 2016 Collection

We’re less than three weeks away from the changing of the season. Seasonal flavors and fashions have already started hitting stores, including some of our favorites. We’re highlighting the stunning looks from the Lola and Sophie Fall 2016 Collection, the contemporary sportswear brand we were introduced to last year from fashion designer Gene Kagan. The fall looks were as elegant and sophisticated as we expected. The collection features the brand’s signature relaxed and interchangeable key pieces, boasting textured materials, layering, sheer overlays, and asymmetrical lines. You’ll also love the abundance of silk chiffon, satin, and soft jersey present in this collection.

We’re excited about several of the tops and outerwear from the Lola and Sophie Fall 2016 Collection. Looks we’re really excited for include the very cool Luster Jacquard Moto Jacket featuring a textured stripe burnout, the Quilted Double Face Jersey Cardigan (which is made for layering), the Double Face Linen Cardigan, and the Luster Ponte Belted Short Sleeve Cardigan (we love its chic robe structure), which are all featured above.

Other styles of tops we’re excited for from the Lola and Sophie Fall 2016 Collection include a simple, long sleeve cowl neck top featuring the cold shoulder trend. As you know the cold shoulder trend was a huge hit for the spring/summer season and it’s continuing right on to the fall season. And since we’re sure the fall season will be off to a very warm start, the Sleeveless top options from the Lola and Sophie Fall 2016 Collection are the perfect transition items to wear during that time.

For those who prefer dresses for the fall season. We’re loving the above two dresses from the Lola and Sophie Fall 2016 Collection. We love the cascading layers and mixed fabrication of the Cowl Neck Dress, and the simplicity and the subtle graphics of the Double Layer Silk Chiffon Tank Dress. Either of these wardrobe staples will ease you into the fall season flawlessly.

Last but not least are the uber-feminine color and silhouettes from the collection. Like us, you will love the softness and movement of the above Vintage Dobby Travel Pants, and the billowy Tie-Front Double Layer Pants (we’re huge fans of this sage color). Both bottoms pair very well with several of Lola and Sophie’s silk tops, and we especially love them with the above Silk Chiffon Overlay Tank, and One Shoulder Overlay Top.

Ladies, can you see yourself rocking the fashionable pieces from this contemporary sportswear brand? We’d love to hear your thoughts on the Lola and Sophie Fall 2016 Collection.

We’re so excited that the weather is warming up nicely (and quickly)….YAY to an early spring!! We begin our spring highlight with the Lola and Sophie Spring 2016 Collection. We fell in love with this label from fashion designer, Gene Kagan, last year when we got a first look at the Lola and Sophie Fall/Holiday 2015 Collection. We loved the easy, interchangeable pieces that compliment each other (and everything else in your closet), and that love continues on to the spring 2016 collection.

Both pf these layering pieces add a touch of elegant simplicity to any outfit. Another favorite is the stylish Ponte jacket below, which features both an edgy and structured look.

Says Gene:

“I believe in creating wearable multi-function clothes. My target customer is a woman of style and individuality. She’s 18. She’s 100! And everything in between. The common denominator is her desire to look polished and put together……These are clothes to experiment with and make your own. I designed them to be both comfortable and flattering and to instill a certain sense of empowerment for the woman who wears them “

Lola and Sophie boast the most luxurious and innovative fabrics with much of the design inspired by sculptural influences. The Lola and Sophie Collection is manufactured right here in NYC. No doubt the chic women and beautiful architecture of the city inspires his designs. You can’t help but fall in love with this contemporary sportswear label, we’ve completely surrendered, will you?

We may not be quite ready for the summer but these adorable shorts from Rose Royce Jeans just might be our motivation to get our legs in tip top shape for the summer. The young denim company offers their eye-catching denim shorts in roll-up shorts and very short.
We love these styles for their stand out prints and intricate embroidery.

Love the denim on denim look? Rose Royce Jeans also offers coordinating jackets and vests to go with their shorts and jeans. For those who want the denim on denim look but don’t like the overall tonal look, just rock the contrasting denim look.
