Olivia Palermo’s Stripes on Stripes: Jump in the Lines

Fashion

OliviaPalermo_Streetstyle

Pairing stripes with more stripes is an endeavor that not every Snob could pull off, but this is Olivia Palermo, front row fixture extraordinaire, and it’s not her first time dressing outside the lines– or in this case, in them. Personally, I love the look, even with mismatched stripes. Choosing to go vertical rather than horizontal is a smart move when both a top and bottom are involved, especially when said bottom is a wide-legged trouser like this one. That adds extra height to Ms. Palermo’s petite frame (as do her strappy Schutz sandals), and creates a feeling of coordination, even if the pieces weren’t originally made to be worn together. Now if only she would share the secrets to nabbing a model husband…

Hermes Launches The Perfect Innovative Website for the 21st Century

Fashion

It’s a new era for the fashion industry and all the luxury brands know that to keep up with the current it’s better to invest in online marketing. It wasn’t that long ago whenGucci’s website went under the knife rejuvenating its style. A few days ago, it was French luxury brand Hermes’ turn to make some changes with their website design, officially launching the perfect innovative website for the 21st century.

Hermes' New Innovative Website for the 21st Century

With its fresh and appealing new look, Hermes’ new online platform consists of animated gifs, short tales about jewelry and leather goods, short films and a sort of new dictionary, named ‘Hermesistible’, wherein it is possible to find the three new words the luxury brand has appositely made up for us, namely jalousele, which stands for ‘a spark of envy in a shade of green’, impulcie – ‘a fleeting guilt when indulging a whim of child-like pleasure’, and escapitude standing for ‘the joy of planning an impromptu escape’.

Described as ‘the lexicon of wordelicious fashion jewellery’, Hermesistible features a colorful section of Hermes gifts, and is meant to represent all those who not only are feeling impulsive and jealous, but also feel the urge to escape from something (or maybe someone?). Hermesistible will soon feature two more words, follitude andaparess, the definitions for which are going to be unveiled this upcoming December.

Although the website still shows all the latest Hermes pieces, it is in fact mainly dedicated to its accessory collections, and focuses more on interacting with its customers rather than merely showing them its goodies. Doing so, it tries to work as a source of inspiration for anyone, from the young girl who is interested in fashion, to the adult who loves interactive platforms. Moreover, the platform makes it possible not only to directly purchase the pictured item, but also ‘like’ it or share it on any kind of social media.

Hermes’ technologic turn officially started earlier in September, when the French brand, teaming up with Apple, launched a new AppleWatch. Available in 3 styles, the Hermes AppleWatches are only sold in selected stores, and their price tags range from $1,100 to $1,500.

But what are the real reasons behind the new innovative Hermes website?

Besides giving a more interactive platform to its customers, Hermes is also trying to find new ways to increase its renowned position as a luxury brand, subsequently increasing its income. Hermes investments in the digital world will take an ultimate turn in 2016, when the brand’s e-commerce platform will be incorporated into its brand new website. Doing so, chief executive Axel Dumas hopes to internationally expand the French brand.

Regarding this, he recently stated: “E-commerce is important, but also it’s about communication, telling your value. That’s why we are really thinking hard on re-launching the new website in 2016. I view digital as a great opportunity and something that is going to become more and more important.”

Not for nothing, e-commerce is indeed a good way to make profitable income in a world where luxury brands are experiencing a decreasing sales growth, and we hope Hermes will find its way in the cyber-space!

Hello, ladies! Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the Saint Laurent line of Monogram Black Chain bags and clutches! If you’re pretty much a Saint Laurent girl, then you’ll love these pieces (we’re swooning here). Here, we have an array of colors and designs you can choose from, but there’s a certain design element that’s common to all pieces – the black chain and monogram. Very luxe, eh? We’ve been accustomed to the metallic glitz of gold and silver hardware, but there’s something about black hardware that we couldn’t really put a finger on. It makes any piece slick and dapper, without going overboard with masculinity.

Prabal Gurung Fall 2015 Collection: The Heat of the Moment

Prabal Gurung Fall 2015 Collection: The Heat of the Moment

As a designer, you will for that shining moment, the one when your roar rings louder than any other. Last night produced such an occasion for Prabal Gurung. From his voluminous layers of furs to the soft, quietly body-skimming dresses, this is by far the best collection I’ve ever had the pleasure of witnessing from the quiet and enigmatic Nepalese designer. There have been seasons (ahem, Spring ’15) when the clothes didn’t feel entirely right, but not this time. This is a collection brimming with pieces you can literally take right off the runway and wear out.

The pieces could almost be called minimal, as it’s all relative, save for Prabal’s flair for the decadent, deliciously subtle as it feels. Sumptuous shades of dove gray and buttercream yellow, touchable fabrics of silk crepe and cashmere, and lambskin leather galore: the overall effect is as soothing as it is stirring. So was seeing the selection of models; appearances by 30- and 40-something greats like Kirsty Hume and Frankie Rayder made for a sensational surprise. Prabal is also playing with new shapes. “I’ve realized a dress can still be sexy without being skintight,” he said. Likewise! The high diagonal slits, some complemented by broad pleats, are sensual without being pushily so. Languid, spaghetti-strapped slipdresses that tease with the prospect of drifting off the body (the nip slip might have to be embraced come fall) feel so much sexier than their aggressively body-conscious cousins.

Especially paired with architectural T-strap pumps and that fur, an outdoorsy-inspired take on uptown-chic mink and fox, for a juxtaposition of tufts and textures. Indeed, it’s that dissension that heightens the energy levels. Pitting delicate lace, crystals, and jet beading against naturalistic animal prints, like snow leopard, and Fair Isle-motif knits is the kind of clash I like to see. Speaking of which, as much as fashion is founded on the visual, Prabal knows it’s also about being heard. I can announce with confidence now that he has found his voice. Now hear him roar.

Katy Perry Looks Holiday-Chic In H&M’s New Campaign

Fashion

Are you ready for the holiday season? Well, if there’s someone who’s definitely ready, that’s Katy Perry. The 31-year-old singer has teamed up with the world famous Swedish fashion retailer getting all holiday-chic in H&M’s newest campaign. Already can’t wait to get your hands on those lovely holiday pieces? Check out H&M’s website and shop your favorites!

Katy Perry for H&M Holiday 2015 Campaign

Wearing H&M’s Christmas offerings, which include some cute flared skirts andChristmas sweaters (just wait and see the ‘Elfie Selfie’ one, it’s insanely lovely) in the perfect Perry style we all know, the renowned singer is photographed by Jonas Åkerlund cuddling up to candy canes and life-sized gingerbread men and nutcrackers soldiers. H&M’s holiday 2015 campaign also features some tuxedo jackets and fringed skirts, which means that we are about to see a well-balanced mixture of tailored and casual pieces, perfect both for our upcoming formal and casual events.

Perry, who has always been a fan of H&M, recently shared her excitement about the collaboration stating: ” I had such a festive time shooting this larger-than-life holiday commercial with Jonas Åkerlund, and all of the fun clothes, especially my favorite, the Elfie Selfie sweater. H&M was one of the places where I first began cultivating my personal style. I have continued to love integrating H&M pieces into my wardrobe throughout the years. One of the reasons I love the holidays is being able to dress cozy and cute, which H&M executes so well for every budget. I can’t wait for you to see the world we created with Jonas Åkerlund and Dan Jackson.”

H&M’s headquarters are also enthusiastic about this collaboration, which also must have meant a lot of work, given the fact that the campaign was revealed only a few days later from the Balmain x H&M latest partnership. Thanks to Perry’s popularity, however, the fashion house could just have had its ultimate collaboration (the American singer, besides being highly popular on the main social media, is also the highest paid woman in the music industry according to Forbes).

“We are so thrilled that Katy Perry will star in our campaign this holiday season. We love everything about Katy, from her incredible talent and energy to her playful sense of personal style.” says Pernilla Wohlfarht, H&M’s head of design.

However, the Katy Perry x H&M collaboration is not down yet with the surprises. The collection, which is going to be available in stores worldwide from about mid-November, features Katy Perry’s first Christmas song ever, which is going to debut on Monday, November 23. Although it might seem to be ‘just’ a television advert song, it is a real life opportunity for Perry, whose song will thus officially enter the imperishable world of Christmas melodies.

“It’s every artists dream to have their own Christmas song, and starring in the H&M campaign gave me the perfect opportunity. Every Day Is A Holiday is big, bold, epic and unashamedly fun, just like Christmas should be.”

Last but not least, H&M’s holiday 2015 season will include some philanthropic work too. Selling any designed gift card, the H&M Conscious Foundation will donate 5% of the proceeds to UNICEF, which consequently will help children in need in Myanmar to get a better education.
