J.Crew x Manolo Autumn 2012

I was gearing up to gripe about an aspect of NYFW in which editors sing the high praises of presentations featuring retailers who market to the mall masses……such as J.Crew, and then I saw the collection and my Snob thoughts were immediately squashed. The collection is really amazing–flat out.

And somehow this retailer even managed to rope Manolo Blahnik into a collabo, this after he swore up and down he wouldn’t ever do such a thing. (Oh the power of being Jenna Lyons!) But so glad he did–they are literally perfect pumps. Perfect. And yo, it’s possible that since it’s J.Crew they may even come in my big girl size 11!

See some highlights from the collection on the next page.

SupremeKateMoss 540x352 Supreme x Kate Moss Spring 2012

In its Spring 2012 poster campaign, Supreme hints at an upcoming collabo with Kate Moss. This won’t be her first time working with the brand that’s as iconic as she is, and based on previous demand you can bet any tee with her name attached to it will be coveted to the extreme and next to impossible to own. Via Hs.

p.s. Just back on red eye from Las Vegas, will be attending a couple of shows today while SGP continues to document Project.

J Crew Catalog February 2012

JCrewFebCat 540x352 J Crew Catalog February 2012

J. Crew like a lot of retailers in the women’s space sort of fell on its face somewhere around the second part of 2010, making downward adjustments to quality in the face of rising material costs. Not suprisingly as a result the stores look like hell. At the time it was publically traded on Wall Street, went private, cleaned itself up and now we’re seeing via catalogs and store visits that it’s clearly once again hitting its stride.

The image above is from its February catalog, which includes the announcement of “The Cashmere Shop” at its online store. Cashmere is hardly new for J.Crew but when this company is working, its catalog images makes you feel like, oh wow, even though we’re facing Spring, darn, I need that short-sleeved cashmere camisole in my life not to mention that minimalist green and navy striped silk blouse and chiffon skirt!

See the blouse and skirt on the next page. Read more

Christian Louboutin Five Questions By Bergdorf Goodman

24 January 2012, 22.59 | Posted in Designer news, Retail, Shoes, interviews | No comments »

Christian Louboutin is asked five questions by New York boutique department store Bergdorf Goodman and charms with his easy manner and just-so French accent. Below are the questions along with snippets from his responses.

What’s your most cherished NYC secret?: The restaurant Quality Meats: “….I’m a meat lover……”
Whose closet would you like to raid?: Loulou de la Falaise: “…She’s been having 30 years of fashion history and so many colors and so many accessories….”
What must have can’t you live without?  I-phone:  ”….It’s difficult because I feel like it’s like an addiction, but it’s definitely, it’s the only addiction that I have so I think I’m fine with it.”
What is the one style you never want to see make a comeback? Clogs: “…for one reason, I love shoes and there’s a thing I love about shoes and it’s the sound of shoes……hearing the sound of a clog is really not nice, not pretty, it’s an ugly sound….”
What is your worst childhood fashion memory: A ski suit: “….I had this incredibly puffy, bright red, ski outfit….”

If you’re a fan, he will be making an appearance at Bergdorf’s on January 31st on the second floor. Click here for details.
