alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet Fall 2015 Collection

Stacey Bendet’s Fall 2015 collection for alice + olivia takes us back to the Biba enthused days of swinging London and the rock and roll era of the Rolling Stones by presenting long, flowing dresses accented with lace details, floral jacquards in mod shift shapes and wide-leg pants with graphic diamond designs. The alice + olivia girl is elaborately layered this season, pairing long tops and matching jackets with winter shorts in a palette of black, white, dark reds, blues and greens.

“This season is about personal expression. It is about bold femininity. It is about glamour. The clothes have a true rock and roll vibe while being simultaneously very romantic,” says Bendet.

The collection highlights rich, textured fabrics in extravagant long coats and pants in real jacquards, mod miniskirts paired with pea coats and thigh-high boots, Mongolian furs worn over printed dresses, lengthy brocade vest looks and 70s inspired black wide-led tuxedo looks paired with a silver embellished mock neck top.

PUMA x Vashtie Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Last night I stopped by Webster Hall to support my friends, Vashtie Kola and PUMA, on their collaboration debut. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection consists of a range of unisex apparel pieces and classic footwear inspired by NYC nightlife and the urban music and lifestyle scene of the 80’s and 90’s era. It pays homage to that time in style history, while integrating key PUMA classic styles like the Suede and T7’s. So cute, loving the iridescent pieces and of course the black & gold looks too!

The collection launches this Saturday, February 28th at revolveclothing.com, Epitome, Bait and select PUMA Lab powered by Foot Locker locations.

Diesel Spring/Summer 2015 Campaign

Diesel’s new Spring/Summer 2015 campaign resounds a clear siren for love in the largest, most unconditional sense possible. Photographer Nick Knight captures Diesel’s campaign initiative, to create a powerful, positive new energy for the world, using beautiful images of models: Charlotte Free, Kiko Mizuhara, Winnie Harlow, Bruce, Sabrina, Gryphone O’Shea and Surren Senevirate showing attitudes of acceptance. Artistic Director Nicole Formichetti explains,

“It’s elevating yourself. Elevating your spirit. Whatever it takes, however you do it. Wherever you are.”
“There are so many crazy things happening now that you don’t see people just having fun any more. The challenge was to work with an avant-garde photographer, Nick Knight, and get him to do something he’s rarely done – which is shoot people smiling. It feels spontaneous, like they are selfies and he’s just the one snapping the photo.”
