You’ve probably already heard the most popular French electronic bands and not even realized it—not only do they usually sing in accent-free English, they’ll sometimes employ others to sing over their booty-shaking beats.
Air and Daft Punk are just a couple of high-profile examples, the latter most recently collaborating with musician and producer extraordinaire Pharrell Williams (and legendary guitarist Nile Rodgers!) for some tracks on Random Access Memories.
Ink proves that color is here to stay. In a sea of black and white, Ink’s vibrant combination was a standout. She’s incorporating a lot of up-to-the-minute trends into her outfit: the moto, the sweatshirt, neoprene and metallics. Somehow, all these disparate themes meld perfectly together into a fun, youthful look.
We spotted Denise immediately due to her insanely fabulous Azzedine Alaïa shoes. Not surprisingly, she’s one of our buyers in Salon Shoes (read more on Denise in our House Call feature).
Denise is artfully rocking this season’s moto jacket-over-a-dress look as well as successfully working graphic color blocking and architectural footwear into the mix—all without looking costumey or overly done.
Denise said she buys what inspires her and has learned to take more fashion risks as she’s grown older. “I’m always looking for pieces that I don’t have within the fashion spectrum,” she says. “Shoes are the best platform for building your outfit from the ground up (no pun intended)—I have definitely embraced the ‘everywhere is a runway’ philosophy with my footwear!”
The lovely Jenna has a classic, vintage chic style that stands out in its simplicity. Sometimes, in a sea of neon and bling, understated chic stands out the most.
Jenna is a freelance writer, but was on assignment for Jezebel–one of my most-loved websites. Her favorite thing about Fashion Week? Reuniting with her friends from abroad and knowing that fall is just around the corner.
Welcome back, Noelle! This Lucky Magazine editor is back for round two on our blog, and looking as lovely as ever. I absolutely love her mix of neon and graphic prints, and she clearly knows how use accessories to elevate, not overwhelm, an ensemble.
Although she says she can’t wait for cooler weather and chunky knits, her summer glow stands out in the crowd!
Here at headquarters, we snapped Rosanna—our BP. Shoes Product Merchandiser—as she was wrapped up in some market research. Since we had a shoe expert on our hands, we asked her for a favorite trend she was spotting for fall. We should have guessed, considering what she was wearing: “Adorable oxfords!”
Oxfords—pumps or flats, patents or leathers—you name it, they continue to be big next season, according to Rosanna. “They complement almost any outfit—and are so comfortable and versatile. Wear them with jeans and a simple tee, pair them with tights and a dainty dress, or channel a menswear vibe with trousers and a fitted blazer. The options are endless!”
Check out three of Rosanna’s personal favorite styles (not to forget those sweet, cobalt ‘Sidney’ oxfords she’s sporting).
