  • Best of Resort Fashion- A Season Ahead, Just In Time

    A girl could lose her head. Or at least spin it around so many times that it will catapult her neck and land in a frisson of colliding fashion seasons that all ineditably fall into one: What looks right on YOU now! A girl could lose her head. Or at least spin it around so many times that it will catapult her neck and land in a frisson of colliding fashion seasons that all ineditably fall into one: What looks right on YOU now! Spring is shown in late summer (at least by the scroching temps merely a week before NYFW). Fall in early winter. Then, there’s resort… resort? You have yet to think about autumn leaves!In this insane goggle-muggle where fashion is shown in the time frame of when retailers need to place their orders for the following season and magazines need to pull for their three-month lead times, Fashion Week has taken a life of its own and is reported the nano-second that the model’s Louboutin hits the catwalk. What human with a robust life outside of the business could keep track of it all?Since the smaller, more gentle fashion season of resort can be the first taste of what’s on trend for spring or a healthy mix of fall transending into a more nuanced state, we bring you resort runway 2010 from around the globe. Not in store just yet, but a heady update of what you may see on the Spring catwalks next week. Get inspired to create your own trendsetting season morph.

  • 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.”

  • Fashion’s Night Out from Giorgio Armani to Brad Boles

    “The fabulousness never ends…Brad and Sharon having no shame taking their own photo at Valentino Dear Diary: Fashion’s Night Out started out as a must-see stop for me at the Giorgio Armani boutique to hear a special reading by Rosie O’Donnell from “Love, Loss, and What I Wore,” a new play by Nora Ephron and Della Ephron, based on the book by Ilene Beckerman. The evening instead turned into my own version of loving, loss, and what I wore!As I’m trying to find a cab (again), who comes trotting by but Brad Boles?! You may know him from the “The Real Housewives of New York.” But Brad and I go way back.Once upon a time a million and a half years ago when I was a fashion stylist, Brad and I would be booked as a team. I was the stylist, he did makeup, and North Rebis did hair when Brad didn’t do both. There was cast of other fashionable characters too who you probably know, but we’ll save that for another time. There was also lot’s of hijinks on the set and super fun nights out with some rather hilarious photos to prove it. Luckily, the bewigged photo of Brad and I here was from the excuse of a rather glamorous Halloween circa 1985.”
