Zoe Saldana ‘s Lanvin dress in a burst of color is our newest love

“Zoe Saldana ‘s Lanvin dress in a burst of color is our newest love. We’ve really been taking note of Zoe Saldana’s style since she went the way of true fashion rather than predicable red carpet route with her Givenchy Haute Couture lilac gown at this year’s Oscars.Alber Elbaz has always been a name on our short list of lifetime personal favorites for his feminine and sophisticated take on clothing that women actually want to wear because of the flattering grace of his designs. As the Creative Director of Lanvin, we see nothing but possibilities that we would love to have fill our closets.largeThere’s been a bit of obsessing around here since we first saw the photos of Zoe Saldana in the tomato red draped dress, that she cinched with a chain belt at the premiere of “Death at a Funeral.” SHOP ANIMAL PRINTS”

Runway Review: Menswear, best of the classics fall 2010, Milan & Paris

“With the end of the last decade’s heady maximalism behind us, and the dawn of a new era upon us with a loud call being heard for palette cleansing essentials in a time when the economy ain’t so pretty, many are looking for easy, fuss-free propositions that are not only right for the times, but right for the future even.The day of instantly recognizable runway pieces is long gone and many venerable labels are looking back at not only their own heritages, but also the fundamentals of a smart wardrobe.>> See Runway Review: Menswear, best of cool for fall 2010The urban warrior, the svelte mod, the 80′s electro playboy and the avant-garde techy futuro man we’ve seen many times around throughout the last decade have all taken a backseat (but that’s not to say things are about to get too classic). In his place comes a clever use of house signatures for Fall/Winter 2010 that epitomize easy sophistication from institutions that you can always turn to for guaranteed quality.>> See Fall 2010 Fashion Show Photo GalleriesFour stand-out collections with “investment” potential & forward thinking clarity in this latest menswear movement were Giorgio Armani, Dries Van Noten, Lanvin & Prada.”

Paris Christmas Windows go futuristic with Lanvin and Le Bon Marche

Retail Remedy: Have yourself a very modern Christmas full of simple and clean artistic references… I especially like these clever holiday windows at the Lanvin men’s and women’s shop that have a post-modern art feel. Le Bon Marche has the most innovative holiday windows this year. Video artist Bertrand Planes has an installation of four animated videos that take center stage.The videos all humorously reference the holiday turkey.

The Word: I Hate Hats

I am a major proponent of the humble knit ski cap – preferably picked up at Duane Reade for $3 on a freezing night when the cashmere Marc Jacobs beret thing I’m wearing seems over-affected for the circumstances. Also, the cheapest ones are the most malleable – length and width wise – and always come in my favorite colors – black, gray, charcoal, army-green, bandaid . I don’t feel bad if I lose them and they allow me more time between $300 highlights. It’s also freezing in NYC in winter.ralph lauren pith helmetI don’t like hats that are worn without thought or purpose or a sense of wit. (Isabella Blow -how dearly we miss her – wore hats like a pro, with cheek and fuck-all elan.) When I style stuff I use hats to mess with proportion and to offset and draw they eye wherever I want it to go. I often love them on the runway. The tri-corn George Washington, Napoleon Bonaparte numbers in KL’s most recent and excellent resort 2010 show in Venice come to mind’. As do the pastel feathers of Marc’s aw 2008 subtle tour de force. And of course there’s the rich explorer woman in Ralph’s retro romances.So that’s what’s great.I hate hats on
