Last year Havaianas got everyone going cray for the Missoni ♥ Havaianas Collection, they’re back again for their second collaboration which is slated to launch in June just in time for summer. The collection will be available at Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Missoni boutiques, and on havaianas.com.
What makes this collection even more special is that it is “eco-friendly,” made from leftover rubber pieces from the manufacturing process and are mixed to achieve the unique signature Missoni zigzag patterns. Every flip-flop comes exclusively packaged in a special packaging made of recyclable material and comes in a Missoni knit bag.
Last month the first images of the Charlotte Free for Forever 21 Spring 2012 ad campaign were posted, now here’s round 2. Seriously considering dip-dying my tips pink ombré after lookign at these pics! SICK!!
I first saw the caviar manicure during New York Fashion Week and I must say I thought to myself this will only be good for special occasions. But when I saw one of my friends wearing this the other day, it made me want to try it myself. ;) I love the 3D effect and it seems like it’s simple to achieve. I think I’m going to buy the Ciaté Caviar Manicure set on Sephora.com, the multi-colored pearls look great and fun for summer! The downside of the caviar manicure is that it only lasts about 48 hours (according to Sephora). Do you think it’s worth $25?
Versace kicks off Fall 2012 campaign season early with a moody black-and-white spread photographed by famed fashion image-makers Mert & Marcus. Starring Dutch newbie Elza Luijendijk — her debut season was just this past Fall 2012 — the five-page outing was styled by Joe McKenna and David Bradshaw, and also features male models Philipp Schmidt, Dmitriy Tanner, and Kaccey Carrig. “I’m really thrilled with our new campaign,” Donatella Versace said. “The result is bold, strong, iconic and perfectly conveys the sexy rock vibe of our Fall/Winter collection.”
With the official start of Summer just days away, there’s no better time than now to get into the spirit of the season — and that includes fingers and toes. In hues that evoke fiery sunsets and sun-kissed skin, Chanel’s limited-edition Le Vernis nail lacquers may be just the thing. And, with names like Island (a pearly nude), Delight (a shimmering bronze), and Holiday (a superbright coral) these colors are sure to put you in a vacation-ready mood faster than most.
See all the Chanel Summer 2012 nail shades, including the available-online-only Beige, which — despite its no-frills name — is a creamy neutral that’s anything but plain.
Beige, $26 (Online Exclusive)
File this under Summer clothing we can’t wait to wear: the Keds Spring 2012 apparel collection is filled with peg-leg pants, colorblock knits, sporty tank dresses, and gauzy Swiss dot blouses — all with a slightly vintage, prepped-up spin. In other words, exactly the kinds of easygoing separates that make warm-weather weekend dressing a snap. Priced from $70 to $300, these supercute pieces are available now — but only at Opening Ceremony stores. Lov eit all!
A Chanel tweed jacket is ageless and never goes out of style. Although, I don’t have the pleasure of owning one myself, when I do, they will become passed down from generation to generation.
This story printed in ELLE magazine shows us how we can wear this iconic piece with just about anything and look like a million bucks. Photographed by Thomas Whiteside, the models Ella Verberne, Josilyn Williams, Veranika Antsipava and Vika Kuropyatnikova were styled by Lester Garcia in looks ranging from sporty to ladylike to avant-garde. LOVE IT!
