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.

Vans Customized With Hermes Design By Robert Verdi

VansHermes3 Vans Customized With Hermes Design By Robert Verdi

The streetwear sites are jumping all over these Vans, customized with Hermes prints as created by stylist Robert Verdi. Not quite sure why they’re popping up now because it appears the images were uploaded to Flickr in August 2010. So much of the appeal is that it’s Hermes, whose status is farily high these days, plus the fact that the prints are to some degree recognizable. Could the same concept have been carried out with Chanel or LV? Or do both of those brands essentially begin and end with their logos?

Chanel Resort Show: Blake, Alexa, Rachel Bilson, Etc.

ChanelBlakeLively2 382x540 Chanel Resort Show: Blake, Alexa, Rachel Bilson, Etc.

Chanel showed its Resort 2011/2012 collection yesterday and the attendees of course included plenty of beauties, highlighted by Chanel handbag rep, Blake Lively. Karl Lagerfeld has received a lot of criticism for choosing the young actress to front Chanel, but the truth is, since the signing she is looking a lot slicker and has clearly benefited from Lagerfeld’s magic touch (though it looks like her red hair dye job was temporary ’cause it’s fading fast!). Still, if she doesn’t bring anything of substance to the plate beyond “Gossip Girl,” her days are going to be numbered as a starlette.

On the next page, Alexa Chung debuts two-tone hair, plus Clemence Poesy, Anna Mouglalis, Rachel Bilson, Karl Lagerfeld, Laura Bailey, Vanessa Paradis and Poppy Delevingne.

Madonna Auctioning Chanel Boots For Lourdes’ School

ChanelBootsMadonna Madonna Auctioning Chanel Boots For Lourdes School

Madonna has contributed a pair of black and white Chanel boots (preworn and autographed) for a fundraising auction being held at her daughter Lourdes’ school, LaGuardia High School, a public high school located in New York City’s Upper West Side. This school is often referrred to as “The Fame School,” for the movie which was inspired by it. More recently, Alicia Keys [UPDATE: Keys attended Professional Performing Arts School not LaGuardia] and Nick Minaj are a couple of its more famous attendees and there are many, many more.

Not sure what program Lourdes is a part of, but whatever it is, she had to try out for her spot. Laguardia is one of a handful of highly-ranked New York City public high schools for which you have to meet very high test-in or try-out entry standards to be admitted. As for what those boots may bring to the school, the highest bid at the moment is $2,860, with three days left.

Making Of The Chanel ‘2.55′ Bag

ChanelBagProduction Making Of The Chanel 2.55 Bag

Chanel gives an inside look at the making of its famous 2.55 bag. The image here is one of the final photos so if you’re a fan of what goes into making an iconic bag, Trendland has more. The pics are also accompanied by text, which includes how the bag was named:

In 1929 Mademoiselle Chanel was the first to introduce an elegant version of the shoulder bag. It did already exist, in the form of a large pouch with a wide strap, but was only used by members of the military on campaign. Women discovered, to their delight, that by using a thin strap they could walk around with their hands free. A new fashion was born. From then on, Mademoiselle Chanel constantly used this idea, until she eventually created the bag commonly known as the “2.55” (which is in fact its date of birth) in February 1955.

Interesting that straps weren’t a part of bags until Coco Chanel came along!
