The Kardashian’s have done it again. Between books, reality shows, cosmetic lines, fragrances and now a baby clothing line we simply can’t keep up with them! The line, which was mommy extraordinaire Kourtney’s idea, is for girls ages 0 to 24 months and will debut at your local Babies ‘R’ Us in March. Kourtney took to Instagram on Sunday posting a sneak peek and captioning the picture, “My dream come true!”
Now we all know the Kardashians have no problem with affording all kinds of luxuries, but the sisters claim the most important part of their line, besides being chic, is being affordable. Kim claims they, “Created a baby line, so there can be super affordable clothes for babies. Kids grow so fast. You need affordable clothes.” The outfits are adorable and definitely fashion forward.
Now all I’d like to know is will they make these outfits in my size too??

Supply and demand seems to be the reason why Target is changing up their clothing lines. Ámbar, a 39-piece line of women’s clothing geared towards the Latina women of today, has been created by Target and will be sold not only online, but in 50 stores throughout the United States. According to Target, the shift comes due to the fact that demographics in the U.S., especially California, seemed to be changing drastically because of the rise in the Hispanic community. Jenny Panske, Target’s segmentation merchant, explains that “With the rate the Hispanic population is growing, it is critical for us to offer a relevant assortment at a great value.”
The new line was made with Latina women in mind, keeping prints as a main focal point, but adding in some chic lengths and colors to keep it vibrant and fresh. That being said, some people are seeing this as a personal attack on the Hispanic community, some even explaining it as racist. In a sense, it is targeting a very specific group of people and generalizing the idea of what the average Latina woman should be wearing. Let’s hope Target can make this an entirely positive experience for shoppers and not get a bad reputation where there only seemed to be good intentions.
Here’s a look at some of the collection…

For this Fall, Zac Posen brought more separates into the mix. ”It adds a 9-to-5 balance,” said the designer in his Tribeca studio space, his team stitching away at the main collection in the sewing room next door. Wanting to transform herself into the day to night Zac Posen woman. Lucky for her, Posen included a lot of distinctively seamed dresses and jackets. Those pieces were good enough to make more than a few of his special-occasion customers everyday ones, too.
A few days ago, the entire world went crazy when we all found out Riccardo Tisci and Nike had gotten together to work on a special collaboration. And after waiting patiently for a while, our eyes have finally seen the amazing sneaker collection that these big two prepared for us.
The collection includes Nike’s three iconic sneakers: the high-top sneaker boot, the Air Force 1 Hi and the Air Force 1 Low; all of them inspired in Givenchy’s spring/summer 2014 collection. Yellow, orange, black and blue are the four main colors used for Tisci’s latest project.
And the two things left to know? The day the collection will fiiiiiiinally come out and the prices given to each pair of sneakers. So, while we wait for the official date, let’s save every penny hidden in our pockets. You thought Nike couldn’t get any cooler? Now go and thank Riccardo for proving we were all wrong.
So you bought a new blazer and can’t wait to wear it, but do you feel like it’s missing something? There are many ways to accessorize that almost perfect outfit, but let’s face it for men it’s a little bit harder to search for that one GREAT piece to pull your look together. However ,when you search high and low for that missing item the reward is that much greater. Pocket Square Clothing can help that urban gentleman define his own personal style and complete that look you were going for.
Pocket Square Clothing was established with the philosophy of refining style for those individuals who strive to be above the average. Founders Rodolfo Ramirez and Andrew Cheung don’t come from a fashion design background, but sought to create not only a brand, but a lifestyle. They feature a collection of handcrafted and designed pocket squares, bow ties, and skinny ties – perfect for the young urban gentleman. With spring just right around the corner their Spring/ Summer 2014 collection has an abundance of floral designed skinny ties and monochromatic pastel pocket squares. Bringing your own sense style to an already existing outfit has never been so easy.
With so much jewelry on the market these days, especially with fast-fashion companies releasing dozens of new designs each day, it is starting to feel like we’ve seen it all. Yes, each designer might put their own spin on a ring or a bracelet, but at the end of the day the jewelry industry doesn’t seem to be cultivating any innovative design these days. Until now.
Enter COMPLETEDWORKS, a jewelry company characterized by experimental temperament, exacting standards, and unceasing creative spirit. In the world of COMPLETEDWORKS, it’s not about “putting a spin” on jewelry design–it’s about revolutionizing it.
So how did COMPLETEDWORKS, Bollare style firm’s newest client, find fresh inspiration in a clichéd industry? By turning the clock back and looking deep into the past to gain inspiration for their modern designs. Inspired by ruined architectures, the collection explores the moods and motifs of historical periods in which civilizational power shifted and changed hands. Fallen and shattered columns are translated into a captivating selection of rings, earrings, pendants and bracelets (pieces in the collection range from $235 – $11,480 in price.) Each piece has its own story to tell and presents a unique riddle of paradoxes: broken vs. whole, jagged vs. elegant, old vs. new.
The overall impression portrayed throughout the COMPLETEDWORKS collection is one of elegance, movement, and power. The broken appearance of the ruins might even inspire a sense of wistful melancholy and a longing for lost beauty, while maintaining an air of regality and grace. COMPLETEDWORKS walks the line between ancient and modern, while tastefully bringing a conceptual edge to fine jewelry. Trust us, you haven’t seen anything like this before.

Maison Martin Margiela: this design house sure has an inventive spirit for creating couture looks. For this seasons collection, the design team created looks using offbeat materials like baseball mitts and tinsel in favor of a treasure trove of vintage fabrics. The textiles were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright from the Fifties and were whorled into long and lean butter robes. Arty patterns were cut and rearranged and word items like colorful chains, pearls, buttons paperclips and tabs from tin cans were used. We call this ‘up cycling’ but this has always been how Maison Martin showcases his collections.
Patiently awaiting the release of Maison Kitsune’s SS14 collection, since the announcement of the cunning Sky Ferreira as the face, the day has finally come and we’ve got to say, it’s been well worth the wait. The lookbook includes fresh-faced Heather Boo and Johnny Pierce of The Drums, as the trio runs about the Big City in their fabulously styled ensembles.
Greatly inspired by new creative artists and musicians, the themed “New Wave” is correctly portrayed by photographer and fashion extraordinaire, Henrik Purienne, who captures the essence of the collection by shooting the three going about their day. Maison Kitsune takes the Parisian chic look and twists it up with the cool city kid feel that comes with New York, using bold colors and structured elements. Don’t believe how good it is? Check out a couple of snaps below and don’t say we didn’t tell you so.
Youth seems to be the roaring trend in haute couture shows in Paris so far: at Schiaparelli, evening gowns were paired with flats; at Versace, clubby body-con minis were shown down the runway; and at Christian Dior, a manifestation in brief hemlines and baby doll silhouettes rocked the runway.
There were some PYT’s who attended the show, with Allison Williams, Leelee Sobieski, French actress Olga Kurylenko, and Kate Bosworth sat comfortably front row. As usual, there were two showings of Dior (one for press and one for buyers.) But this year, according to Vogue UK, a third show was added at Dior’s expense for students from major fashion colleges from around the world. Two lucky students from each school were invited to attend, selected from the likes of Central Saint Martins and Condé Nast College. Here is proof that Simons is not only inspired by youth, but likes to inspire the youth in return and that makes all the difference.
It looks like sportswear will remain a huge trend for the next fall and winter. German fashion house, Viktor & Rolf has just presented its most recent collection and we still cannot decide which is our favorite look from the 27 they designed for the upcoming season. Long coats, tailored pants, bomber jackets and blazers with very interesting silhouettes were definitely the pieces that made of this collection an incredible one.
Gray, black and blue are the three colors that Viktor & Rolf chose for the fall and winter for 2014 and there’s no doubt that many guys will be killing to wear one of their creations.
Somehow, this collection is that one moment, where the nerdie guy of the office, decides to become cool and boom…! He achieves it.
