Style.com-Print Premiere Issue

Style.com 540x540 Style.com Print Premiere Issue

The first issue of Style.com/Print is available on newstands. Lindsey Wixon is featured on the cover–not suprisingly a model because according to a Times profile, the magazine’s goal is to look back at the Spring runway shows with content like, “Tommy Ton street-style photos, top-10 lists of most-viewed shows (Chanel was No. 1 with 3.5 million page views), the favorites of its editors (Balenciaga came in first), the most ubiquitous party people, the best shoes and bags and models, and the best-dressed fashionista based on reader votes (Giovanna Battaglia pulled off a major upset).” Buy it at Colette.

Chanel Nail Polish ‘April,’ ‘May’ & ‘June’ Spring 2012

06 October 2011, 16.20 | Posted in nail art | 1 comment »

ChanelNailColorsSpring2012 Chanel Nail Polish April, May & June Spring 2012

Chanel is showing peeks at its nail polish colors for Spring 2012, called “April,” “May” and “June.” If anything the peachy beige has a nice fresh feel to it, the others….not so much. On its runways it showed a pearly white, which looks to be a fairly hot fashion color for Summer 2012 so perhaps we’ll see that come down the line a bit later.

I’ve said it before, the world tends to get into a tizzy about Chanel nail polish colors, but in my humble opinion the brand just doesn’t hold the clout it once did to set trends if only because there’s just so much going on in the category in terms of product above and beyond just old-fashioned nail varnish.

Book: ‘Girls Got Kicks’ Launches Today!

15 September 2011, 09.45 | Posted in Art, Books, Fashion, Sneakers | 2 comments »

ggk front cover for websmaller 428x540 Book: Girls Got Kicks Launches Today!

For anyone who knew of us about five years ago, we started as a column called Chicks With Kicks on Highsnobiety. Our love for a good pair of sneakers even in our more posh Snobette digs has remained untouched. In the HighSnobette universe, four-inch heels and sneakers are just as sexy as tight jeans, a Fleet Ilya harness or a Chanel suit. Illustrating the love  that many of  us have for le sneaker Lori Lobenstine of Femalesneakerfiend  teamed up with Amanda Lopez to bring you “Girls Got Kicks,” a photo book documenting women and girls in their kicks:

Girls Got Kicks… the first ever photo documentary of the badass females, told from a unique angle: their passion for sneakers. From celebrities like WNBA Rookie-of-the Year Tina Charls, legendary b girl Rokafella, and “Downtown’s Sweetheart” Vashtie Kola, to extraordinary young women famous only for their obsessive love of sneaker, Girls Got Kicks celebrates the beauty and diversity of female sneaker fiends the world over. Whether they’re running home in the rain barefoot to save their precious kicks or tearing them up at the skate park, whether they’re matching them to their wedding dress or their basketball uniform, Girls Got Kicks documents how these sneaker lovers push beyond stereotypes, using kicks to be both athletic and sexy, hip and tomboyish, grown and youthful, as they define who they are—and who women can be—on their own terms.

 Launching today at Goliath, you can get your copy here.  A peek at the photos on the flip.

Chanel Iman On Cover Of Elle Ocotber

08 September 2011, 15.54 | Posted in Magazines, Models, Swimwear, advertisement, celebrity | 2 comments »

ChanelImanBathingSuitElleOctober 405x540 Chanel Iman On Cover Of Elle Ocotber

Elle is featuring four models on the cover of its October issue with the theme being they all work for Victoria’s Secret. We liked this one of Chanel Iman in a Herve Leger swimsuit the best. But on another note, question: did Victoria Secret pay for this cover/product placement? It seems crazy that Elle would do this for free–especially given it’s October, which isn’t exactly know as a month when anyeone is pushing bathing suits.

Thursday Friday ‘Chanel’ Tote Bags

01 September 2011, 16.39 | Posted in bags | No comments »

ThursdayFriday (2)

Tote-bag company Thursday Friday gained quite a bit of infamy earlier this year when news of its “Hermes” bags went viral, publicity which eventually led to a successful cease and desist by the real Hermes. While at Project in Las Vegas last week, we stopped by the company’s booth (which was buzzing) to spy the newest copy, the incredibly iconic quilted Chanel bag.

[UPDATE: I've had an interesting exchange of emails with creative director, Roni Brunn, at T/F and need to correct an inaccuracy. While Hermes did sue T/F there was no "cease and desist" by any judge, the two companies settled out of court.]

Personally I’m not sure how I feel about this product. One thing I’ve always hated about fashion is how little can be protected from the knock-off artists, essentially forcing young creatives who live and die by their ideas to focus solely on staying one step ahead of the vampires. That being said, Hermes and Chanel are no innocents, yet still, I could see where they would be motivated to squash a blatent copy of an item that a large part of their image not to mention revenues is based upon.

There is an interview with Thursday Friday’s creative director, Roni Brunn, at Glamour today and she compares the bags to pop art, a la Andy Warhol and Campbell soup cans. And sorry, but not quite–one is art the other is clearly commerce. I’m sure if Brunn made a painting featuring a Hermes or Chanel bag that landed in MOMA, they would be fine with it. And ’sides, if she really believed that then why did the company choose to leave out Chanel’s famous interlocking Cs logo from the bags?

But then there’s that feral side to me that’s like, eff it, yeah, brands like Chanel and Hermes deserve this because on its face the whole idea of “luxury” is deserving of mockery and takedown. Just don’t pretend your doing something noble and artisitc when you’re not.

More “Chanel” bags on the flip.
