Back to Old School- Backpacks, Rucksacks, Knapsacks, call it what you want, but they are super stylish now

Not since we all became stylishly exhausted from the ubiquitous 90′s nylon Prada backpack, have they made such a strong fashion statement- not to mention, impossible to keep again in stock these days.Maybe it’s the return of 90′s minimalism that’s trending now.Maybe it’s that a backpack makes absolute sense when navigating the urban jungle on a bike.But from Euro street style to hot off the runways (see the Alexander Wang knapsack that we love, right), the backback is looking so right these days.Erogonomics aside, the right backpack needs to look right on you! Afterall, it’s all about how the bag’s shape plays with your rear.

What Courtney Wore Today, Yes As In LOVE

Personal Confession: I find myself flummoxed by many personal style blogs…I have an old school brain where my fashion focus is more about YOU than ME… most of my career spent behind the scenes to create a gorgeous end-product rather than being front and center in a model posing way.Without naming names in the gargantuan genre of personal style blogs, for me, some are absolutely over-rated, others embarrassing, most are mundane, many are sweet, and few simply stand out on their own merit. The personal style blogs that do it well, do very well.

Cheap Monday is Really Cheap Chic- An Affordable Designer Brand To Wear

“Affordable fashion Alert: Love the Spring 2011 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Stockholm & I’m wearing it now- so should you!Unlike many other less expense labels, Cheap Monday is more than decently-made, on trend but never trendy, offers a great fit, and doesn’t look like mall rat or big box knock-offs.If the price tag wasn’t so crazy cheap, you would never be able to separate their pieces from big name bridge designers (that’s usually the secondary line for most designers) and sadly, from some over-priced and over-rated designer lines.Cheap Monday began in 2004 as an alternative jeans line for men and women “who wanted fashionable jeans but didn’t agree with the increasing prices of the brands which were popular at the time.”"

Best of Haute Couture Fall 2010 – The Glamour, The Fantasy, The Allure

“As we prepare for the Spring 11 Fashion Weeks, we reflect the unimaginable beauty of what was Haute Couture Fall 2010. Naveed Hussain has spent some time digesting the magnificence of all that is available for only a privileged few.Haute Couture has been a tireless subject of debate. While many like to continually point out it’s weak sales across the board and diminishing relevance in society. Although that may be the case, wasn’t it always?Isn’t couture about that unattainable and highly elusive luxury item we all like to dream of having? Hasn’t globalism made “luxury” too readily attainable?The nine designers who showed for Haute Couture Fall 2010 clearly understand the craft beautifully. However, there were four contributions whose focus and edit were so precise that we want to take a moment and applaud them.These designers respectively pay homage to the past with their own distinctive signatures while moving things forward with the kind of youthful gusto couture could thrive on.John Galliano at Christian Dior, Ricardo Tisci at Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Maria Grazia Chiuri & Pier Paolo Piccioli at Valentino seem determined to energize Haute Couture with troves of tasty options.”

Wearable Art For Your Feet by Japanese Shoe Designer Tetsuya Uenobe

Back in my early club days one of my most coveted pair of shoes was a pair of Tokio Kumagai black suede pumps with funny, little whiskers jutting out all over.At a time when Japanese designers like Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garcons and Yohji Yamamoto were the must-have uniform for the downtown art set, Tokio Kumagai designs– particularly the shoes– were right in step. Often extraordinary and whimsical, the shoes shared the Japanese minimalist fashion aesthetic of the time that still looks modern. The most iconic being most a pair of mouse flats long before Marc Jacobs turned a rodent into a chic shoe.>> SHOP FOR CUTE FLATSUnfortunately Kumagai passed away at an early age and there really have not been that many designers to fill his shoes when it comes to slightly wacky, yet very wearable art for your feet, that happen to have an animal influence.Enter Tetsuya Uenobe.Uenobe takes it up a notch with pieces of art that you happen to be able to wear. I was able to interview the designer and ask a few questions about his craft.
