Fashion Week Journal for Friday, February 27

It’s Jeremy Scott’s world—for today, you and I are just living in it. The ultra-fresh designer and the innovative team at Moschino have done it again; they’ve solved the runway’s but I want it now problem.

Fresh off the Milan stage, the Moschino Fall 2015 mini-collection is live; you can shop our capsule collection of Moschino backpacks, tote and duffle bags, earrings, and phone accessories now and be the first on your block to toy around with Scott’s pop art.

And… GO!

Fashion Week Journal for Thursday, February 26

Where New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week might have been taglined Those ’70s Shows, Max Mara‘s camel-colored cashmere runway took us back to the 1950s and Marilyn Monroe. But this wasn’t your average blonde bombshell Monroe; this was a studious, serious side of the actress—a side deeply inspired by George Barris’s beach images of her from 1962.


From “Rock & Roll Spanish Women” and “Smoky Chelsea Girls,” to Utilitarian Punk” and “Twiggy’s Daughter” – these were just a few of the inspirations heard backstage as we endured the freezing temps in NYC for Fall 2015 Fashion Week. Equipped with weatherproof boots (thank you Aquatalia and Valentino!) and Mom’s super-warm, hand-knit legwarmers (thank you MOM!), we braved wind, snow and sauna-like backstage tents to see fall beauty in all its splendor.

The Eyes Have It

Fall has always been the season for the Smoky Eye. 2015 is no exception, but new, modern approaches make it exciting, sophisticated and definitely dramatic. Regardless of the techniques and colors used, we saw many cool variations including:

Trend Recap: Retro Futurism


‘Retro Futurism’ is an exciting concept developing in Milan. Design houses have years of archives to reference for inspiration, and what we find interesting is how the past—specifically the ’60s and ’70s—is being reinvented with a futuristic approach. With a play on proportion, quirky color mixes and geometric patterns, the past has never looked so good!

Highlights and commentary from yesterday’s Milan Fashion Week runway shows: Etro combines bourgeois formality with lavish, tapestry-inspired looks. The Italian fashion house, known for its artistic textiles, didn’t fail to deliver with geometric, ’70s prints in rich, earthy tones and sumptuous fabrications.

Patricia looks flat-out amazing in these slim denim overalls. She’s got a bit of a retro ’70s vibe going, but feels absolutely modern too. The white turtleneck is a super popular piece this season and it pairs so well with denim. The striped, cropped fur coat adds some luxe texture to her look.

Another show, another great outfit from Linda Tol! Overalls and jumpsuits continue to be a hot item this season, especially flared-leg styles. This silky patterned pair is so Linda: unique and edgy. A simple turtleneck is the perfect pairing with this statement one-piece. A bold lip and a structured box clutch add even more cool sophistication to the look.

By now, everyone knows how much I love Shiona Turini and her megawatt smile. Of course, it helps that she also has impeccable style. I love that Shiona doesn’t shy away from color, and today she really stood out. Her bright trousers and crop top make me wish spring was here already. A military-inspired coat, emblazoned with butterflies, amps up the springtime vibes.

Anjelica looks like she just walked off a 1970s rock-band tour bus. I am so pleased with the whole ’70s revival trend, especially this Penny Lane-inspired style. Tall boots, a big hat and a shearling-lined coat make for a statement look. A flowing midi dress keeps things light and feminine.
