PFW Balenciaga F/W 2013!

28 Feb

Alexander Wang owned his new creative director role at Balenciaga as he presented his highly anticipated debut collection for the French fashion house today in Paris.  Wang played it somewhat safe as he paid homage to the label by “going back to the archive”( a sign of respect among fashion’s elite). The very wearable collection had some of the usual Wang street vibe to it but was very graceful and chic- So Balenciaga!  Wang incorporated his own special touches of texture and some marble prints into the mostly black and white palette. The highlight for me was the shoes.  I particularly loved the “T” strap and “V” strap heels!

This collection silenced many nay sayers and left the supporters hungry for more, which is exactly what a young designer strives for!  Bravo Mr. Wang! Cheers to a job well done!

CONFIRMED: Alexander Wang to Head Up Balenciaga!

30 Nov

Although the news won’t  be officially announced until next week, it has been confirmed that 28-year-old Alexander Wang known for his clean yet edgy aesthetic has landed the job as Balenciaga’s new Creative Director.  Rumors have been swirling for some time as Wang was a top candidate for the position. In just five years, Wang’s own label has become very successful and his creations have plenty of commercial appeal. His shoes and handbags are top-sellers as well as  his diffusion line T by Alexander Wang. He will have his work cut out for him juggling this new position in addition to his steadily growing label, but I think he’ll do just fine!

Crazy for Clutches (Splurges)

22 Feb

Clutches may be small, but they can make a HUGE impact on your look.  Clutches are my favorite accessory, I’m kinda obsessed actually.  They  transition from day to evening easily and come in a variety of sizes so you don’t have to worry about limited space.  Clutches are a perfect way to experiment with a color or material you would never wear and still feel comfortable.  If you want to try the latest neon trend, start with a clutch. Spikes, studs, animal prints and wild colors  are doable when they’re a clutch.  If you don’t have a clutch, I suggest you get one, I think you’ll be hooked too:) Pink Jason Wu python embossed($895) available at Nordstrom.  Navy Yves Saint Laurent clutch($845) ,Woven Burberry Prorsum clutch with buckle detail($1,295), Fendi fold over clutch in lemon($840), Alexander McQueen skull box clutch($2,295) all available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
