NYFW Vera Wang RTW S/S 2013

Vera Wang Ready to wear Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

With an “out of india” theme, this collection was a hit!  There was a beautiful palette of colors including rich greens, purples and gold. Shapes ranged from structured to fluid and much attention was paid to detail( no shocker, Vera is a perfectionist).  I also loved all the use of chantilly hand pieced lace, so pretty.

My Favorite Fall Campaigns!

23 Jul

Fall 2012 ad campaigns have arrived!   Twice a year(Spring/Summer & Fall/Winter) our favorite fashion houses sum up their collections and ideas with images that are targeted to fashionistas around the world.  I usually have a favorite or two but not this time, it was actually a chore narrowing it down to my top five!  I think you’ll agree that these are some amazing images…….

 

 

Louis Vuitton: Love the enchanting 1920’s “Louis Vuitton express” feel. Shot by Steven Meisel.

Jean Paul Gaultier: Karlie Kloss looks gorgeous in these street inspired ads complete with old scaffolding and graffiti in the background. Shot by Willy Vandeperre.

Vera Wang: Simply beautiful, these ethereal ads literally look like a dream. Shot by Carter Smith.

Edun: I love the creative images of the models as well as the use of a beautiful white owl and butterflies which are all indigenous to Africa where the brand  produces most of it’s clothing, supporting local factories.  This is the first ever campaign for the brand. Shot by Ryan McGinley.

Mulberry: My absolute favorite!  The whimsical ‘where the wild things are’ themed ads are perfection. Shot by Tim Walker.

okay okay I have one more, lets call it the honorable mention……

H&M:  I love how simple yet stunning this campaign is, featuring Lana Del Ray the retro vibe is in full swing.  Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vera Wang’s Grand Collection

15 Apr

Today is the day!!! The unveil of Vera Wang’s Spring 2013 Bridal Collection. Aahh the suspense……Are you on the edge of your seat?

Vera did not show one white dress today. Last season nudes and blacks dominated her show ,but today Vera went BOLD really bold and went straight for our hearts with RED , all shades of the beautiful color . Times are  changing, brides wear color  and Vera is ready to provide it. As much as she sticks to traditional aesthetics of bridal gowns, I admire her willingness to try anything. She definitely brings the WOW factor and is always ahead of the curve. I LOVE IT!

“The symbolism of red. Boldly romantic, charming, protective, grand, seductive, sexy. from dahlia to scarlet, crimson and vermillion. A celebration of love”  Vera Wang

Brides to be can preview Vera’s Spring 2013 Bridal Collection at the VW Bridal house in NYC 4/19 through 4/22.
