Vera Wang Collection
Vera Wang Collection: The epitome of New York elegance, Wang has redesigned everyday dressing with luxurious fabrics and goddess like draping.
Our girl is a downtown romantic who likes to be discovered for her style and not the labels she buys
Designer Rebecca Minkoff told the world backstage before her Spring 2013 runway show in NYC. The newly released Spring 2013 Lookbook from Shopbop captures the essence of the “Minkette” perfectly; supermodel Heather Marks rocks out with up-and-coming indie boy-band “Wild Cub” in flirty festival dresses, denim shorty-shorts, crop tops, distressed leather jackets, and the quintessential colorful crossbody.
The collection was inspired by photographer Slim Aaron’s, whose work was focused on capturing “Attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places”. This nod to the jet-setting celebutante culture of the 1970’s is apparent throughout the collection; but with elements of modern day it-girl prevalent throughout. With pieces that can easily be mixed and matched a Minkette feels, and looks, just as at home in a charming Malibu beach cottage as she does in a swanky Manhattan rooftop bar.

At Milan Fashion Week, the always-modern Philipp Plein revealed a high-energy glamorous collection that embraced a significant rock ‘n’ roll edge. There were no shortage of sexy, fitted silhouettes in an appropriately dark palette of black and gray with bursts of red for the Plein girl this season.
The talented designer zeroed in on the elements and materials that epitomized the theme and he wasn’t shy about mingling them to create lust-worthy ensembles. Plein incorporated tiger prints, snakeskin, raccoon tails, mixed furs and all separates possibilities in leather to create his foundation. A fierce tiger animal print appeared nonchalantly in flowing semi-sheer maxi dresses, while at the same time dominated a matching set in which the print included the tiger’s head and enveloped the top and stretchy leggings. Perfectly fitted leather pants and miniskirts made for easy blank canvases to pair with leopard print motorcycle jackets and sheer blouses or dramatic mixed fur jackets. Snakeskin was found in hints on jackets combined with fur but was most notably used in a pencil skirt and matching jacket as trim.
Plein’s collection was very well executed considering the level of mix media that was utilized. The ensembles found a balanced edgy consistency that was not only fresh, but also very wearable. We’ll be counting down the days until this collection is available in stores.

In Kelly Wearstler’s world, creativity fuels creativity. Her well-known interior design projects, such as the glamorous Viceroy Hotel and Resorts chain and the Avalon Beverly Hills Hotel, took nods from the runway. Likewise, the finish of concrete floors at a furniture factory evokes oversized statement rings or the legs of a modern chair. Wearstler’s own eclectic style, which has landed her on Vogue’s Best Dressed list, is a result of her design aesthetic, which marries progressive elements with classic pieces and vintage touches. With a never-ending fluid circle of her own inspiration, the interior designer is progressing into fashion with an eponymous contemporary line of apparel and accessories this Fall.
It’s been an evolution getting here. Fashion has always been an inspiration, but now it’s another medium for me to try.
