adidas Originals by Rita Ora

adidas Originals by Rita Ora

adidas Originals has tapped Rita Ora to collaborate for three seasons, the first to debut Fall/Winter 2014. For the first collection expect heritage classics carved up, re-cut and emblazoned in bold graphics and vibrant colors. Love the first look which shows us just how funky the collection will be! Right up my alley if you ask me 😉

Rita says, “The collaboration came about through mutual love and appreciation. I have always been a fan ofadidas originals and respect what they stand for in their fearlessness and originality. I worked very closely withadidas originals to put a personal touch in every piece with connections to my music, my career and my life. I’m really proud of the collection and beyond excited for my fans to get their hands on it!”

This morning, I arrived to work to the news that Joseph Altuzarra has officially signed on board to be Target’s next designer collaborator!! That’s right: The big, old bull’s-eye is getting a dose of seriously elegant, French style by way of one of New York’s most sought-after designers.

With little more than a single sketch to tease the designs to come, we can come to the conclusion: The 50-piece collection will feature a feminine, full-sleeved maxi-dress, and likely other sophisticated designs, courtesy of the former CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner. Once again, the collection will not only be available in Target stores and online, but also through Net-A-Porter, which first joined Target for its Peter Pilotto collaboration just last winter. The Joseph Altuzarra for Target collection will officially arrive September 14, once again providing the perfect post-Fashion Week treat for the masses. Check out the boudoir-scene sketch below for more subtly exciting hints.

5 Chic Trends : If You Haven’t Tried, You Need To NOW!

 

After a stretch of blustery, almost-winter days, it’s easy to get into a comfortable rut, sartorially speaking. You know the routine — the one where you live in oversized sweaters, leggings, and maybe a cape (if you’re feeling adventurous), day in and day out.

Well, have I got news for you: There are scores of other legitimately awesome fashion trends that you’re missing out on. Haven’t worked a leather top yet? What about a velvet skirt? And wedge sneakers? YES, these are all definetely worth the risk!  I challenge you to try five of my favorite cold-weather looks. But, naturally, I’m also giving you the pro advice you need to pull ’em all off in style. 🙂 So, go ahead — it’s time to live a little!

Lace Basics

The easiest way to add both a feminine touch and some modern polish to your wardrobe? Swap out a basic wardrobe piece — like a button-up shirt or a blazer— with a lacy replacement.

Forever 21 Lace Solid Trim Shirt, $13.50, available at Forever 21.

Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply Lace Blazer, $198, available at Macy’s.

 

Chic Sneaks

I’m obsessed with my Isabel Marants but a cool alternative are these babies for sure — they add a little extra height, but they’re super comfy, too.

Steve Madden Olympiaa High-Top Sneakers, $99.95, available at Steve Madden.

H&M Sneakers, $49.95, available at H&M.

Ash Bea Nappa Wedge Sneakers, $295, available at Amazon.

Collar I.D.
Swap out your go-to statement baubles with a tough-yet-sexy collar necklace. Win some extra style points by wearing it on the outside of a button-up shirt.

DANNIJO Gold-Plated Collar Necklace, $320, available at Stylebop.

 

Piano key necklaceBanana Republic Piano Key Necklace, $89.50, available at Banana Republic.

 

Leather Up

Equal parts tough and tasteful, leather (and its faux counterpart) adds a decidedly grown-up edge. Look for tailored silhouettes, and remember, small doses go a long way — leather sleeves and panels are easy ways to spice up basics.

Charlotte Ronson Lambskin Leather Top, $450, available at Shopbop.

 

3.1 Phillip Lim Leather-sleeved Silk Crepe de Chine Dress, $995, available at Net-A-Porter.

Tinley Road Vegan Leather Peplum Top, $98, available at Piperlime.

Velvet Goldmine

Velvet is definitely having a moment, and why shouldn’t it? Luxe, cozy, and impossibly rich, this classic winter-wardrobe staple looks great in any form.

Mango Velvet Peplum Skirt, $39.99, available atMango.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Galya Velvet Dress, $398, available at Marc Jacobs.

Mango Sheer Under Layer Velvet Top, $49.99, available at Mango.

5 Ways to Wear a Classic Parka

 

Bundle up. The parka had a big presence on the Fall 2011 runways — from Rag & Bone to Altuzarra (left), the options on offer were a plenty. And with the likes of Phillip Lim, Jason Wu, and Alexander Wang all showing versions of the parka’s lighter-weight cousin — the anorak — for Spring 2012, it seems that sporty toppers are here to stay. See below for five stylish ways to wear yours, this Winter and beyond.

Warm-weather staples get Winter-ready with the addition of a leopard sweater and sheer tights.The honey hue of the coat adds a bit of romance — and makes the floral blouse pop — in this monochrome look.
Beyond basic. Casual classics are elevated with the help of a jaunty fedora and loads of fur.An oversized fur hood and a flouncy skirt lend glamour.
An earth-toned parka grounds this eclectic mix of color, print, and pattern.
