Jenna Lyons Named Woman of The Year by Glamour

4 Nov

It is no surprise that super stylish creative director of J.Crew, Jenna Lyons, was named one of Glamour’s women of the year.  The 44-year-old inspiration started as a fashion assistant at J. Crew in 1990, worked her way up the old fashioned way and was named creative director of the mega-brand in 2007.  Myself and many others know J.Crew would NOT be where they are today without Lyons, it’s just a fact.  Not only is she the brains behind the brand, but also their most recognizable model.  Her style is uniquely casual yet polished, she has mastered the balance of masculine and feminine pieces while mixing textures effortlessly like no other. Thick rimmed glasses, middle parted hair and red lips were also a signature part of her look long before the trendy hipster crowds claimed it.  She is a style icon without a doubt, Glamour is spot on with this one!

Haute Coffee!

11 Oct


The amazingly talented indie design duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte announced  that they have collaborated with mega-coffee chain Starbucks. This means everyone can buy a little piece of Rodarte without breaking the bank!  The collaboration will include  four limited-edition items that are set to go on sale at select Starbucks locations  and online  November 13th, 2012.  A modern pixelated checkerboard print that is aimed to appeal to both men and women will be featured on a tumbler ($13.95), reusable cup sleeve ($5.45), tote bag ($13.95) and a limited-edition gift card as well. For the design duo, it’s a chance to put their name — and their edgy conceptual style — out to a new audience. Their designs are not exactly in line with mass-market taste.   “Our clothing is specialized,” Laura Mulleavy recently said in an interview “and when we are thinking of Rodarte, we choose things that say who we are as designers, but we’re not limited to that. We like the idea of collaborations and putting our thought process somewhere else.”
