CRUELLA DEVILLE, 101 DALMATIANS
Do you know who HATES Cruella Deville? PETA, that’s who. Spending her days designing for her swanky label, House of Deville and spending her nights killing puppies, she’s one of the meanest villains around. Yet, despite her obvious animal cruelty issues, she has impeccable style. I can’t condone the killing of dalmatian puppies and everybody has their own preference on fur but...
Anonymous asked: How do you get to attend these fashion shows? I mean, I know your work involves PR and management or something, but how does that translate into being allowed backstage? (Not bitchy, just curious)
From outside the Calvin Klein show. I quite like street style in video form. Video c/o SWELL’s Vimeo page.
MISS HAVISHAM, GREAT EXPECTATIONS
Hey look, it’s everybody’s favorite spinster! Yesterday I finally looked at the Prabal Gurung fall 2011 collection and read it was inspired by Miss Havisham. For me, the inspiration rang true, lots of romantic cuts and a little bit of drama…very Dickensian and Havishamian. For those of you who haven’t read this book in your high school curriculum, allow me to enlighten...
LINDA FARGO, TEXTBOOK FOR FASHIONISTA
My latest post for Fashionista.com is up, Linda Fargo! WOOOO!!!
OSCAR DE LA RENTA, FALL 2011
I always enjoy what Oscar de la Renta turns out and this season was no exception. From what I could tell, there were two themes happening. The first was this kind of Russian folklore motif with collage, prints and fur accents. The second was along the same lines, but with an icy tweak—silver, white fur, sleek silhouettes, lots of shine and an almost Bond girl thing goin’ on. Actually,...
theclotheshorse: a weak visual summary of NYFW I appear to have so many deep conversations. Also, a romantic brunch date with Simko. This was pretty sweet, expect nothing less from Rebecca.

Anonymous asked: I really like your blog. I stumbled across it from reading "What I Wore." The Great Gatsby and The Cather in the Rye are my two of my favorite books. And I love Franny and Zooey too. I'm really surprised though that you didn't style any of Holden's looks with the Buffalo plaid (like his Hunting Hat) because that is a big part of the book. Have you thought about doing...

Rachel Antonoff Fall 2011, it was a high school dance and the like played and it was awesome.

Sorry, not into the tailoring on these pants. The plaid ones look quite like a pair of pajamas I have. Also, not digging that fur coat situation-maybe it’s just the picture but it doesn’t look like it justifies the price tag I’m betting it has.
Nobody expects Steven Alan collections to be particularly forward thinking. Overall, I thought this was pretty amazing—very clean lies, lots of layering but not in an overwhelming way. There were lots of playful prints in the womenswear and some very interesting knitwear pieces for men. I dunno, this is the way I dress all the time. Very Holden Caulfield, very. Also, that red velvet number...
GILDED AGE, FALL 2011
So I may have covered this already but I used to intern for Gilded Age. I can tell you that the quality of these clothes is near unparalleled. Having said that, I’ve been keeping a close eye on what my old boss has been up to and when I finally got a chance to scope this out, I was thrilled. It’s a great evolution of where the brand has been and owns the American Trad more than...
Yo, I’m moderating a panel today at the IFB conference. You should probably check out the live-stream, lots of good info there today. Cool, it’s streaming here. Also, I’ve got a sweet post over at Fashionista going up soon. Just a heads up.
Hey guys. It’s fashion week time, I’m stoked. Woohoo fantastic. I’ll try and keep up the usual posts here as best I can but expect a little bit of different content this week. Some collection reviews, some vids, some other stuff and whatnot. Glad to be here, you take care now.
So, this may shock you…but I love X-MEN. Gasp. Shock. Awe. Wah. I really need to do more superheroes on here and do forgive me for being brief today, life has been quite busy lately. Here we have Storm also known as Halle Berry. She can control weather and is pretty badass. Cool, done. 1. LIGHTNINGS! Jumpsuit by Gareth Pugh, shoes by Burberry 2. TORNADOES! Dress by Haider Ackerman, shoes by...
Hey everybody, fashion week is coming up…really soon actually. Just a heads up that I’ll be going as part of tumblr’s whole nyfw initiative. I am excited, thank you for your time and have a great night. Eat some chocolate, have a glass of wine, have two what do I care?
