“The Icon and the Iconoclasts”

Karl Largerfeld for Louis Vuitton?!

 

Karl Lagerfeld

It’s true! The Chanel front man and Fendi designer teams up with the brand to re-create their iconic gold and brown monogram bags, trunks and luggage. Along with other designers: Cindy Sherman, Frank Gehry, Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo, and Marc Newson; they will develop “the most desirable icon in the world”. Many of the details from this project are still under wraps, and it is not the first time the brand does something like this. In 1996 the brand enlisted Alaïa, Manolo Blahnik, Helmut Lang, Vivienne Westwood, Isaac Mizrahi, Romeo Gigli, and Sybilla for a similar collaboration.

We definitely cannot wait to see what comes of this rare combination of designers!

1383607060949.cachedIt’s official! After months of speculation and stressing about what will happen to Louis Vuitton after the end of Marc Jacobs’ tenure, Nicolas Ghesquiere has officially taken his position as Artistic Director of the iconic fashion house. Despite his bitter departure from Balenciaga, his time there was said to be incredibly successful for the brand (obviously, hes amazing). Rumor has it he’s bringing his former Balenciaga assistant Natacha Ramsay over to Louis Vuitton with him. Huge personal fans of the cutting-edge designer, we cannot wait to see what he’s going to do for Louis Vuitton. This could mean big changes for the almost 160 year old brand as they continue to find new ways to maintain their classic style while growing with the ever-changing contemporary fashion trends. Officially counting the days to the Spring14 Paris Fashion Week debut!

Jeremy Scott’s new gig at Moschino

JeremiahScottforMoschino1
Unexpected but exciting! The Italian fashion house has named Jeremy Scott it’s new creative director. Scott is a former Moschino intern and has been running his own label out of LA for 16 years, but this is the first time he will be creative director for a big-name fashion company. He has replaced Rossella Jardini who was the creative director since Franco Moschino died in 1994. Although Moschino did not disclose the reason for Jardini’s departure they thanked her for her “enormous contribution in keep the spirit of Moschino alive.” Jeremy Scott’s designs are known for poking fun at fashion, which he says is what attracted him most about the brand – that they liked to poke fun at fashion too. So what does he plan to bring to Moschino? He told Style.com it’s all about “bringing the brand into the now, into the future. For me, it’ll be about playing with the heritage and vocabulary and bringing it into today. I feel like I can bring a younger demographic. My fan base is much younger [than Moschino’s].”

This is definitely an unexpected change for the infamous brand but we’re totally excited to see the edge he’s going to bring to it! His first collection for them will be Fall 2014 and is set to debut during Milan Fashion Week in February. Can’t Wait!!

NYFW: Angel Sanchez SS13

Geometric shapes, pops of color and structured leather and organza gowns were all over the stage at The Box at Lincoln Center for the Angel Sanchez SS13 presentation yesterday. With a vivid white backdrop, magenta cubic center art and cool serene music blasting, it was a chic, modern experience to say the least.  At first glance, the pieces were stark and sleek, but with a closer look there was this intricate beaded detailing adding delicacy and femininity to the designs. The colors remained rich in yellow, navy, black, white and magenta.  The models portrayed natural makeup, nude nails and slicked-back hair, emphasizing the shaded perfectly-structured fabrics and modernistic cutouts. Sculpture designer, Rafael Barrios created a geometric brooch specifically for Sanchez’s pieces that was consistently shown throughout the presentation complementing the fabulous dresses as a new kind of bold accessory.
