The Row 2012 Resort Collection

Posted in Art Nouveau with tags , , , , , , , on June 11, 2011 by James Field

Undoubtedly becoming one of my absolute favorite design duo’s,  Mary-Kate & Ashley conceived a truly fantastic collection for the Resort season. The collection consisted of superb suiting and stripes with a homage to the Luchino Visconti film Death in Venice. The 1940’s clean and fresh look almost resembled the wardrobe of a wealthy artist or philanthropist’s daughter, coasting on the family yacht in Monte Carlo during the 1940’s summer months. The twins know what they are doing, and they know exactly what their customers want, which is undeniable luxury. The best part of the collection for me are the shoes. Good year welted brogues and wingtips that just completed the look perfectly.  I can only be inspired by their work and sheer passion for design and as they continue to send out phenomenal clothing (such as the Fall 2011 Collection) I will be a loyal  fan. Below you will find some of my favorite looks from the collection.

Topic: Fashion’s Night Out

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 26, 2009 by James Field

I am so excited for Fashion’s Night Out in New York City on September 10th! I will be making my way around the city’s participating retailers, sipping cocktails, checking out collections and just having some much needed Fashion Fun! Anyone and everyone is invited and no RSVP’s are neede, so  check out Fashion Night Out for the official list of designers and retailers participating in the event. Below is the official information on the event from the Fashion’s Night Out website. I will be there..will you?!

 

“In a global initiative to promote retail, restore consumer confidence, and celebrate fashion, U.S. and international editions of Vogue are coordinating evening extravaganzas in their respective world fashion capitals.

In the United States, American Vogue has joined with NYC & Company, the City of New York, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America to enliven again the consumer spirit that churns the economy and boosts the local industry of America’s fashion capital, New York City. Next only to finance, fashion is the second-largest sector of industry in New York City—the headquarters of more than 800 fashion companies employing 175,000 people and generating $10 billion in total wages. At City Hall’s May 20 press conference to announce Fashion’s Night Out, Vera Wang said, “To put it bluntly, if people don’t shop, people lose their jobs.”

The first evening of New York Fashion Week, Fashion’s Night Out will encompass festivities galore— from inventive window displays to model and celebrity appearances. Champagne may flow; hors d’oeuvres may be passed. Rumors of musical performances, downtown barbecues, shoe capsules, limited-edition rings, and sweepstakes abound. Apparently there will be makeovers, brow bars, and haircut stations at sundry spots, too.

We’ve invited every fashion retailer across the five boroughs to encourage the fun of fashion again—flagships, tiny boutiques, massive department stores, young designers, mainstream chains, and niche luxury names alike—by keeping its doors open late on the evening of September 10 and to implement creative customer experiences welcoming all. Over 700 retailers and designers across New York City are confirmed participants in Fashion’s Night Out.

On Fashion’s Night Out, every participating location is open to anyone and everyone. Neither tickets nor invitations are required to join in the Fashion’s Night Out festivities.”

 

 UPDATE: Fashion’s Night Out was an absolute extravaganza of fun with, celebrities and crazy amounts of champagne lol 🙂 I met up with a few friends and we made our way around 5th Avenue to check out some of the events, Ciara was performing at Versace and we got to see the super model Chanel Iman. Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen were at Bergdorff Goodman, we didnt get to see them because of the crazy amount of people who packed the store. We snapped some shots at the Armani store and the Prada boutique.

The Bohemian look began in the nineteenth century with impoverished artists and ended in 2009 with Gucci, a style that once signified frugality and voluntary poverty has obviously revolutionized  the way we operate. And DAMMIT we must applaud designers like Anna Sui, Hermes, and Vivenne Westwood for their Spring 2009 runway looks which scream “buy me.”
