Visit To Saks Fifth Ave Off 5th In Woodbury

Off5thChanel 540x405 Visit To Saks Fifth Ave Off 5th In Woodbury

In celebration of the remodel of its Off 5th Outlet store in Woodbury Commons, Saks Fifth Avenue invited a bunch of bloggers a week back to take a tour of the store. Woodbury is about an hour’s drive from New York City, and is known for the high-end, designer names it attracts, including Balenciaga, Gucci, Prada and Tory Burch ( which has velvet ropes outside its store for crowd control purposes!).

The Off 5th store looked great, with an open air, spacious feel to it that makes it easy to shop. Overall, its shoe department is its biggest draw, offering a wide range of the poshy-posh designers (yes, the above image is of THOSE Chanel boots) it sells in its full-priced doors, but at a deep discount. The handbag department was also well stocked with juicy items, and the contempory department is highlighted by a Rag & Bone line, created exclusively for Off 5th. We were mesmerized by the shoes (I snagged myself a pair of Cole Haan sandals), but for accessory lovers, there’s a very large department set up right near the entrance that has a lot of tempting items, especially watches.

Dolce & Gabbana Puts Out Book Full Of Studly Soccer Players

24 May 2011, 14.34 | Posted in boots, photography | No comments »


Dolce & Gabbana has always been the label that puts the beast in sexy so a book full of portraits featuring smoking hot soccer players is right in sync with its image. Titled “Milan Fashion Soccer Player Portraits,” it’s packed with black and white images of soccer studs from the world championship Milan team, dressed in looks ranging from formal to casual, often with chests and legs on display. The label held a party in its Milan store recently celebrating the book and the Milan team’s victory, according to Wwd, and just about the entire team showed up wearing grey pinstrips. Can you imagine?? More delicious than a hot-fudge Sundae!

That’s midfielder Rodney Strasser above. See more sexy beasts on the next page and even more here.

Christian Louboutin Opines On Galliano

Christian Louboutin Aioli Spike Booty

While Christian Louboutin was in Dublin promoting his recently opened store, Graziafashion caught up with him and conducted a quick yet thorough interview, hitting on everything from who he chooses to collaborate with to his thoughts on John Galliano’s firing. Here’s what he has to say on Galliano:

I feel sad for him, it must be very hard for John because your name is your identity. When your label is your own name you defend it as a brand but also as yourself. It’s part of who you are and, physically, you are very involved-the two cannot be separated. Being sacked from a (design) house where you’ve been working for a long time is hard but having your name taken away is like ripping off the Band Aid. I would hate to lose my identity like that.

That seems like the sensible reponse–show sympathy without attempting to speculate why Galliano did or said what he did. Find more here.

The above “Ailoi Spike” bootie is part of Louboutin’s Autumn collection. It delivers mid-June and is available for presale, though alas, it’s already sold out.

Diana Linda ‘Bollywood’ Boots

It’s finally warm enough to dare sandals, at least in our opinion, and subsequently we’ve develloped a little obsession with Diana Linda’s “Bollywood” boots. The open toe flat gladiator hybrid was all the rave last summer , however there’s an exotic/bohemian appeal to these that has us smitten. Available at Masalachai, more views on the flip.

 Fur Shoes: Rodarte & Altuzarra

We’ve been observing fur as an important Autumn trend not just as an outerwear material, but also used on shoes, bags and in the cases of Alexander Wang, on sunglasses! The shoes featured here, Rodarte on the left and Altuzarra on the right, occupy very different worlds but yet the theme of fur connects them.

Khloe Kardashian’s Closet

KhloeKardashianLouboutin1 Khloe Kardashians Closet

Here is just one pair of Christian Louboutin shoes included on Khloe Kardashian’s list of favorites, many of which are highlighted in an Elle magazine slideshow featuring her meticulously-ordered shoe closet, plus other items that have become wardrobe staples for her. Here’s what she has to say about her shoe closet:

“I love all of my shoes! It is a must to have them color coordinated, and to be able to see each and every one of them. I know exactly where each one lives and I can tell if one has even been moved! It definitely helps to put one shoe facing front, and the other to the back. It saves space, but it is also nice to be able to see the back-side of the shoe. I am an organization freak!”
