André Leon Talley To Leave Vogue

17 Feb

Vogue and flamboyant contributor André Leon Talley are parting ways after 3 fashion filled decades.  Word on the street is that Talley has signed on to host his own late night talk show.  The split is said to be amicable as Talley will remain somewhat involved with the fashion bible we call Vogue but wants to focus full-time on the talk show.  Is this the end of an era?  In my opinion YES!  Talley is synonymous with Vogue and all things fashion for that matter.  Do I look forward to his array of fashion forward talk show guests? YES! Can’t wait to watch!Andre

When I think of Vogue I will always think of Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington and André Leon Talley!

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!

Proenza Schouler’s New Lust Worthy Bag

8 Nov

‘Bag ladies’ all know and love the PS1 bag by Proenza Schouler, well now it’s time for you to meet the PS1’s big sister…..the PS13 from their resort’13 collection!  Although the bags are totally different in design, they accomplish the same goal- a casually chic feel of understated elegance.  A bag like this only comes around once in a while.  Think about it, most designer bags appear to be designer bags while Proenza Schouler has mastered the “normal” extraordinary everyday bag that you can get away with wearing to the grocery store without looking silly.  I love how the top handles are sturdy and you have the option to wear as a shoulder bag also. The front flap pocket and backside zip pockets are great as well….. accessing keys, gum or a cell phone without going into the main bag is always a plus.  I must admit I will always be loyal to the PS1, but this new bag is pretty amazing as well.

Available at Proenza Schouler ($2,250-$6,550)
