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!

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!
