While we can definitely see the benefits of having a well-tailored LBD pressed and ready to go, Marni’s debut evening collection is making us think a little more adventurously. Wide-legged short longs, floor-length crepe satin and bedazzled cropped sweaters – these are our new night-time jams, and we have a new self-imposed rule regarding minimum pieces of flare.
Marni is kicking off the penultimate day of Milan Fashion Week this morning with what we’re sure is going to be another whimsical and covetable collection. Catch all the action from the front row with our livestream, and see what designer Consuelo Castiglioni has up his sleeves for fall.
Italian label Marni is launching its first-ever fragrance in February 2013, and the ad campaign stars Brazilian model Raquel Zimmermann.
The height of waffle luxury.
We’ll be honest — H&M‘s newest designer collaboration with Italian fashion house Marni sort of snuck up on us. So this morning when we awoke to find the full look book for the collection just sitting in our email inbox, we were more than a little surprised, and a whole lot of delighted.
We feel that some of you might not be appropriately excited about the forthcoming Marni at H&M collection. And to ameliorate that, we think you should take a look at the dreamy, Sofia Coppola-directed commercial that’s just been released.
This week there was a lot to love — Tavi singing Joni Mitchell, Lea T snagging another magazine cover, a brave girl giving an awesome makeup tutorial. But there was also a whole lot to hate. Justin Bieber ruined Christmas! Terry Richardson remained really creepy! Little girls got bikini waxes!
Versace for H&M may have launched just two weeks ago, but the Swedish mega retailer has already announced their next collaboration: Marni, coming to an H&M near you this spring.
You can count Crystal Renn, Chanel surfboards, Marni and models dancing among our many obsessions, so we are totally digging StyleCaster‘s “Surfer” video, which incorporates each and every one of these awesome things. ”Surfer” is just one part of the site’s Renn cover series, which also includes a stunning fashion editorial, an interview and a more narrative short film. All Crystal, all the time? Yes, please!
Besides being a makeup addict, I also happen to be a jewelry addict. That whole Coco Chanel “take one accessory off before you leave the house” adage? Um, no thanks. Though I layer piece upon shiny piece (Iris is my homegirl, after all), even just one really great item can transform an outfit from blah to bomb. And you want to look all bomb, don’t you? This is why I’m going to teach you how to curate a super cool jewelry collection.
Similar to the famed Von Trapp clan and their curtain couture, we’ve recently seen our beloved designers use heavier fabrics which resemble nothing more than our great-aunt’s upholstery. While being somewhat logical –- thicker fabrics mean more warmth with less layers and higher durability -– we can’t help but ask: is this flattering? Or, more importantly, attractive?
