Stella McCartney’s resort collection was inspired by Hawaii, so it only makes sense to extend that to the denim portion of the collection. From far away, the denim from the collection almost looks like acid-wash or a dyeing technique, but on closer examination, the palm tree pattern can be seen.
I love how subtle it is! Stella explained her inspiration, “Denim is something that’s already ingrained in everyone’s wardrobe. So we played with it to give it a new twist.” The pieces retail for $995 (jacket) and $665 (jeans) and will be in stores in January.
Here is a look at the brand new Autumn/Winter 2011 G-Star Correct Line “Midnight Collection” and it’s now available in stores as well as on-line at shop.g-star.com. The annual collection features elegant, tailored evening wear with a distinctive G-Star twist.
Traditional pieces are updated in new silhouettes and modern fabrics offered in a color palette of black and rich blues, which hint at G-Star’s denim DNA. Highlights from the collection include the Double Blazer (left) and the Kalahari Dress (center), which was inspired by a NY RAW runway dress – easily taking you from runway to real life. So what do you think of the new collection?
I thought I was in love with the Elizabeth and James Diedrick Leather Pants in Sienna, but saw these and a new love affair happened. I just cannot stop staring at them. The webpage for them has been open ever since I saw them a few weeks back and still is. I just love the fit. The trouser style is just perfect. I also love the motorcycle quilting on the thigh. It is a piece that I would love to own, but they come with a hefty price-tag. So it will only be a dream for the time being. You can click here to purchase these pants at Blue & Cream for $1,015.
AG Jeans has some great new styles just in time for the New Year. These are their new Foiled Leggings. They come in White and Black. They feature classic white and black washes that are gilded with metallic accents. My favorite out of the two would have to be the White Foil. They show off the contrast of cracked foil detail a lot better than the black.
Metallics are going to be the next big thing. If you are a bit hesitant to go all out on the trend then these are a great adjustment. You can wear the White Foiled pair cuffed with some pumps and a sweater and you’ll look perfect for a day out. Or dress up both looks with a blazer and shirt. You can click here to purchase the white and here for the black at the AG website both for $225.
