For Resort 2019 collection, Marni presents the new iconic style with its unexpected volumes: the Earring bag.

feed45415393OL_14_n_a

With an elegant aesthetic and a compact structure the new accessory unveils its hidden personality thanks to a long zip that moves from bottom to top, revealing surprising spaces. The gold metal jewel circle creates an interplay of symmetries. This precious detail resembles a shape of an earring, almost like a large-scale version of an everyday amulet.

The Earring bag is available at Marni boutiques and on marni.com.

 

Shades Of Fall

This season is all about Camel and Leopard print! There is no denying animal prints’ enormous presence on the Fall/Winter 2018 runways. Classic camel is incredibly easy to work with, since its neutral shade pairs with literally everything, while animal prints can be incorporated through accent pieces. Or if you’re into prints you can work with printed layerings – a fur coat, cardi, or overcoat. I always find myself in some kind of variation of casual, neutral and oversized. Get my outfit details below.

MIU MIU CROISIÈRE 2019 CAMPAIGN

MIUMIU_RESORT19-flaunt_DPS1

The Miu Miu Croisière 2019 campaign captures this essence – of constant change, of intrigue and interaction. Shot by Alasdair McLellan at Hotel Regina in Paris, with creative direction and styling by Katie Grand featuring models: Gwendoline Christie, Lucan Gillespie, Taylor Hill, Kendall Jenner, Adriana Lima, Ariel Nicholson, Cami You Ten, Zoe Thaets and Naomi Chin Wing.

A hotel is a point of endless rendezvous and interaction, both a destination and a starting point: a threshold between familiarity and the hitherto undiscovered. Inside a hotel’s rooms and suites, labyrinthine corridors and vestibules, personas are easily worn and shrugged off, different roles assumed and exchanged – a million stories can be told. A hotel is a space open to reinvention of the self.

The grand public space of the lobby or foyer marks a point of convergence, a spontaneous and unexpected arena for the exchange and interchange of distinct characters. A proscenium arch under which personalities are perceived, discerned, redefined as guests mill around, blurring lives together. A hotel is a paradox – simultaneously intimate and expansive, private and public. It is an ephemeral space – a home, but only for a night.

Coach Commits To Fur-Free Policy By Fall 2019

coach-fur-free-fashion

Coach announced that the brand will no longer use real fur in its products, pledging to phase fur out completely by the debut of the Fall 2019 collection.

“Coach has been committed to advancing sustainable practices for many years, with the introduction of our corporate responsibility goals in 2015,” said Joshua Schulman, President and CEO of Coach. “Back then, we laid the groundwork for prioritizing social and environmental initiatives. The decision to go fur-free is a truly meaningful milestone for the brand.”

As part of the brand’s broader program, Coach is also dedicated to empowering employees and enhancing the lives of those in the greater community. Core to Coach’s values, philanthropy is an area that the brand is exceptionally passionate about. The Coach Foundation, founded in 2008, has granted over $45 million to nonprofit partners globally. Fostering a collective of global corporate citizens, Coach encourages its associates to take part in volunteer programs with their teams and to make a valuable contribution to the places where they live and work – exemplifying Coach’s dedication to giving back.

“What really excites me most is building a business that balances true fashion authority while also driving positive change — both within the company and in the greater community,” said Schulman. “We create magic when we do both simultaneously.”

JULIA ROBERTS FOR HARPER’S BAZAAR NOVEMBER 2018

hbz-november-2018-julia-roberts-1539201076America’s favorite pretty woman, Julia Roberts, rock climbs in couture for Harper’s Bazaar November 2018 issue. Julia is interviewed by Oprah Winfrey and opens up on her new projects (Amazon’s Homecoming and Ben Is Back), turning 50, social media, aging in the spotlight and more—while she dares to face her fear of heights and literally climbs to new heights in the season’s most breathtaking couture in Harper’s BAZAAR US’s November Daring issue, on newsstands October 23rd.

The covers are photographed by Alexi Lubomirski with styling by Elizabeth Stewart (Julia wears Giambattista Valli Couture and Dior). Hair and makeup by Serge Normant and Genevieve Herr, manicurist Lisa Jachno.

The interview will also be available on “Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations” podcast starting October 23rd on Apple Podcasts(ApplePodcasts.com/OprahSuperSoul) and other podcast platforms.

Oprah Winfrey: “The theme of Harper’s Bazaar this month is daring, and so you actually decided that you were going to do something daring because you’re afraid of heights. That’s what I heard. Is that correct?”

Julia Roberts: “I am afraid of heights and it’s funny because I’ve always been afraid of heights… Of course [Harper’s BAZAAR wasn’t] going to put me in incredible peril, and we did things that were just high enough and just scary enough where I could still smile and throw my gown up into the air.”

OW: “Do you remember when your kids finally first realized that you were Julia Roberts, America’s beloved-sweetheart actress, Academy Awardwinner?”

Julia Roberts: “I don’t think they will ever have a true sense of that. I think I told you once when they were starting to figure it out, it was like, “You’re famous?” And I said, “I think a lot of people might have seen the movie that I’m in or might know who I am.” Maybe an hour goes by. “Are you more famous than Taylor Swift?””

OW: “Stedman and I lived in the tabloids for so many years, and it was hard on his family members and some of my family members, and I couldn’t imagine if we had children and every other week there’s some story about him leaving me, me getting dumped, or me leaving him. I know you have experienced this very thing. Are you able to keep that away from your kids?”

JR: “For the most part. Sometimes we are in the grocery store and I won’t even know something is out, but we’ll see a tabloid and we’ll all be standing there like, “Oh, that’s uncomfortable. This is really uncomfortable.” It can still hurt my feelings, because I’m so proud of my marriage. We just celebrated being married for 16 years this Fourth of July, and there’s so much happiness wrapped up in what we’ve found together. What I like is when they write, “the $150 million divorce,” and then a week later a different tabloid says, “the $275 million divorce.” I’m like, “Well, somebody got a paycheck in the last week. This is getting good.” Read more here.

Chanel Spring Summer 2019

Each season Chanel has transformed the Grand Palais into the most extraordinary showspaces, like turning it into a rainforest with huge cliff, trees and waterfalls to a woodland forest or by placing a giant Chanel rocket right inside the Grand Palais, which eventually even blasted off. For this season Karl Lagerfeld imagined a sandy beachscape stretching out under azure-colored skies. An enormous backdrop depicted a picture-perfect ocean. And actual waves gently lapped against the shore.

Blocks of color run through knitted cardigans, lace and denim looks in the Chanel Spring Summer 2019 collection. Lagerfeld showcased sweater dresses, that also formed part of this show’s baseline, in lightweight Lurex, origami cabin dresses trimmed with abstract beading work. Straw beach bags and visors emblazoned with the Chanel logo were presented alongside youthful swimwear boasting candy colored prints and string crop tops. A monochrome swimsuit and low slung jeans, sported by Kaia Gerber, was among the most appealing looks on the catwalk. See the entire lineup below.

Celine Spring Summer 2019

Hedi Slimane debuted his first collection for Celine Spring Summer 2019 on Friday at Paris Fashion Week and fans of the brand are not thrilled about the results. The collection was far from Phoebe Philo’s Céline.

“The entire wardrobe worn by the male models is unisex, and therefore will also be available for women,” said Heidi in the press release. Skinny ties and short skirts were the backbone of the collection, which had a distinctly ’80s vibe. Naturally, almost everything was black, although there were some pops of sparkle. See the collection in its entirety for yourself, below.

Balmain Spring Summer 2019

New Project (48)

“I enjoy pushing envelopes, thinking a bit outside the box and saying exactly what I feel to anyone who cares to listen. At the same time, I’ve always believed that it’s important to have mastered the rules before you attempt to bend or break them. Today, my team and I focus on why this last stop on the Fashion Week circuit remains so distinct from the others. It’s not the runway’s styling, music and celebs that make Paris fashion so incredibly inspiring—I believe that it’s our incomparable heritage of couture and its high standards of tailoring, intricate sculpting and embellishment that distinguish us. Of course, those unique ingredients are key elements of this house’s DNA and today’s collection makes clear what a combination of savoir-faire and a Parisian atelier can make possible. And then, we moved to deconstruct all of that, bending the rules a bit. While continuing to respect the standards, techniques and skills that this house has long mastered, we’ve played with cuts and tailoring, creating new silhouettes and styles that reflect the way my generation wants to dress today. Just as we pay homage to the singular origins of Parisian fashion, we’ve also riffed on the origins of modern-day Paris—and, actually, modern civilization itself. My fascination with the impressive obelisks, pyramids and columns that date from Napoleon’s campaigns and adorn this city’s most iconic public spaces is reflected in our collection’s many references to Egypt. The feel of ancient papyrus and linens finds an echo in our denim and tweed offerings, while prints and treatments play with the distinctive looks of aged plaster and sharp hieroglyphs. And, just like I. M. Pei, we’ve turned to modern materials, including glass and metal, to update the Egyptians’ impressive geometry.

This collection is accompanied by one additional break with conventions. We have teamed up with Oculus to invite as many members of our Balmain Army as possible to experience the show through virtual reality. For too many years, the legendary runways of Paris fashion week have been only open to a very lucky select few. This partnership embodies my often-repeated desire to democratize and modernize fashion. Using an Oculus headset, they’ll be able to enjoy a 360-degree view of the runway, helping them to experience the excitement of a Balmain show and understand a bit more the unique heritage and possibilities of this house.” Olivier Rousteing
