Prada Made In India

Prada Made In India

Inspired by her father’s love of  global craftsmanship, Miuccia Prada launches a series of “Prada  Made in…” projects, for which items are created using artisan expertise from all over the world. Now, Prada did not go as far as A Peace Treaty in naming each product after the artisan who actually sewed it, but did  create special  labels that honor each country. Of course the Snobettes  applaud  theconcept of highlighting well made apparel and accessories  in a world where fast and mass tend to prevail. On the next page a look at the workmanship from India, Scotland, Peru and Japan. Click on each picture to learn more about each artisan expertise. Images  courtesy of Prada.

APT3 Capsule:A Peace Treaty Jewellery Spring 2011

There are a slew of trade shows going on in New York City right now and yesterday we stopped by Capsule, which highlights up-and-coming brands with an edge, a look which is right up our alley.  First stop was A Peace Treaty, who we love and whose scarves we have featured repeatedly. What you’re looking at on this page is its second jewellery collection and it couldn’t be more pitch perfect for right now…the right balance of exotic, earthy and yet still very fierce. Extreme luv, needless to say. More images of necklaces and bracelets after the flip.

Alexander McQueen Tribute London Fashion Week

YouTube Preview Image

I could not ignore the huge hole that is missing at London Fashion Week and that is Alexander McQueen. Even though McQueen had not attended London Fashion Week since 2001, knowing that he would never design another collection is truly a huge loss for the creative industry. Stars including Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss, Anna Wintour and Bjork (who also performed) paid a special tribute to McQueen at a special one hour ceremony at St.Pauls Cathedral, London. I think the video tribute sums up the awe-inspiring, determined, outlandish genius that was McQueen. AK.

Dolce & Gabbana Naomi Tee Shirts For Fashion Night Out

D&GNaomi

In conjunction with Fashion Night Out, Dolce & Gabbana are making a bunch of limited edition tees featuring Naomi as photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Klein, David LaChapelle, etc, etc, basically all the greats. Naomi will be signing the tees (though I’d rather she signed my Blackberry) at the Dolce & Gabbana store on Madison Avenue. Then the tees will be rolled out to D&G stores worldwide, with proceeds going to Naomi’s fave legal-defense-fund, I mean charity. And like I said last week, I’m finding myself more than ever overwhelmed by this stupid “FNO” event!  Next year, I guarantee, Wal-mart, Payless and all that ilk will be in on it, too, and it’s going to be one giant, meaningless mess, which it sort of is already.

CynthiaRowleyBand AidsSliceofStyle Cynthia Rowley Limited Edition Band Aids!

A collaboration between Cynthia Rowley and Band-Aids, called “Dress-Up Band-Aids” is such a cute concept, it’s hard to believe that it hasn’t been done before! One dollar out of the ten charged for the box will go to Rowley’s pet charity, Design Ignites Change, which encourages students to make social change in their communities via design. We found this at Sliceofstyle and you can buy the actual Band-Aids at Rowley’s site. Perfect for new-shoe blisters, no?
