Uniqlo NYC Ad Campaign To Feature Susan Sarandon

SusanSarandonUniqlo Uniqlo NYC Ad Campaign To Feature Susan Sarandon

Uniqlo is about to launch a New York City-themed ad campaign that will feature a bunch of famous New Yorkers, including the ageless Susan Sarandon. (We saw her not too long ago at an event she hosted and yes, even in the flesh sans good lighting and makeup, the woman is positively luminescent.) The ad spots will also include Laura Linney, John Leguizamo, Glee’s Darren Criss, jazz musician Esperanza Spalding and Tumblr founder David Karp among others.

In a WWD article Sarandon says nice things about Uniqlo, natch, but goes on to express more opinion-based things on her feelings on the fashion industry, in particular how the industry relates to her oft-celebrated rack:

“I like to have fun dressing up. I hold onto things. All my Azzedine Alaïa from years ago I still have. Donna Karan and Diane von Furstenberg are old, old friends. Dolce & Gabbana have always been very generous and they have those great Fifties silhouettes that are great if you have breasts. Donna always designs for women with curves in mind. Sometimes designers don’t take breasts into account and there’s no room for them.”

On a side note, this David Karp Tumblr founder…did you know who he is or what he looks like? I didn’t. So I grabbed an image from Google and put it on the next page in case you’re curious, too. He looks like he’s maybe 17 though apparently he’s 26. And he has a Tumblr page, which is kinda good. Imagine that! And oh look, he even has a teaser from Uniqlo’s (I presume) holiday ad campaign.

Target x Missoni: The Quilt So Far Is The Best Thing

TargetMossimo (4)

The issue with Missoni is that all by itself it sometimes can look cheapish but then you add in Target’s factories handling the making of this collaboration and the snob in me has some doubts about how the clothes will look on the rack. It doesn’t help that manufacturing costs are way up this year and most retailers (especially ones like Target) have downgraded the materials they use to keep their profits from taking hits. But whatever, I imagine for early-arrivers there will be a few items worth grabbing. #tryingnot2bcynical&failing

Karl Lagerfeld x Macy’s = Ugh

KarlLagerfeldxMacy's

This reminds me of Colette’s collaboration with Gap. A great look for Gap that did not a whit for Colette. And in Lagerfeld’s case given his growing rep for being overly collabo-happy with a bunch of makes-no-sense, non-luxury brands it should be viewed as a net-net negative.

Image above shows one look from the collabo, featured in Vogue. Via Fashionista.

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.

See shots of Miu Miu, Camilla Scovgaard and Burberry shoes on the next page.

Target x Missoni First Images

TargetMissoni (4)

The Target collaboration with Missoni is the first one in a while at the big-box retailer that fashion lovers have been excited about so you will find these images from the ad photo shoot all over the style blogs today. The idea is that they were taken on the sly, but judging from the quality and range, and the fact that they landed first on TFS, one cannot help but suspect they were intentionally leaked.

More on the next page including a Missoni roller suitcase.

Highsnobette-Chance

While trailing around this week-end we stumbled upon Chance, the brainchild of Julia Leach. A summer pop-up boutique anchored on the image of the classic striped boatneck and mostly the stylish, classic ocean side nonchalence  it inspires. The white walled boutique stands as a ray of sunlight filled with fun discoveries and an attention to detail that makes us swoon. On the next page a peek at a few pieces available at their online shop however, in the spirit of discovery and taking chances, this is a must visit! Photography by Chris Shipman
