Expose NY : Bambou by Farrah Delaunay

farrah 3 Expose NY : Bambou by Farrah Delaunay

I cannot by any means consider myself a bag person. For the most part  I  get wrapped up in details, craftmanship  and, end up rocking the same one for years. When I saw Farrah Delaunay’s (above)  line “Bambou”  though, I wanted all her bags in all their glorious mix of  leather  and colorful  African fabrics. Being caribbean, living in Brooklyn it’s easy to see the use of ethnic fabrics in fashion as repetitive. However,  Farrah’s use of classic shapes and great details like  metal zippers, tassels, allows the bags to be  relevant to a fashion that is globally accessible,  and not stuck in a  ”type” or ethnicity. Look on the next page for a closer look at “Bambou”.

look 3 side Expose NY: Serpico Autumn/Winter 2009

I just previewed the Autumn/Winter ‘09 collection from Serpico,at Expose NY . The label created by Melissa Serpico Kamhout. Based in Chicago , Serpico uses draping with a very architectural sensibility to create  a line that  is refined and intellectual .  The label’s aesthetic reminds me slightly  of our style conscious first lady, making “dressed-up”  look effortless, chic, sexy but never boring!

A closer Look  at Serpico on the next page.

spyder1mini Spyder Fresh Air Shell Jacket

I recently got a  Spyder Fresh Air Shell Jacket, and was pleasantly surprised.  The cut is sleek,  the jacket is lightweight and very warm,  transitions easily from outdoorsy adventures to a city/urban setting.  Basically,  you don’t take up two seats on the  subway with your puffy  your jacket.  A closer look on the next page .

Beyonce’s Mani: Opposite of a Good Look!

12 February 2009, 20.15 | Posted in celebrity | 5 comments »

beebustednails Beyonces Mani: Opposite of a Good Look!es, Yes, those are Beyonce’s nails you’re looking at!! I mean, what the damn eff Bee, when exactly was the last time you got your nails did?? They are so bad in fact that I can’t help but think it’s a media stunt (granted a minor one), especially since she’s wearing what is supposedly her almost-never-worn engagement ring on the other hand. This is Bee, after all, the high priestness of Black Southern Belles, who do not do busted pedicures. And if if this is her attempt to be edgy, it’s not working! Mainly ’cause the chipped-nail look only works if you’re a skinny, young girl who smokes Marlboros and only ever wears skinny jeans and hightop Chucks. Sorry, but otherwise, you just look jacked-up and lazy.

Shopaholic Style at Patricia Field

Highsnobette- Shopaholic style at Patricia Field

 

Known for her creative costume design on some of the most infamously fashion conscious movie and TV sets (”Sex and the City” anyone?), Patricia Field landed her self the gig as the head honcho of the fashion department for the movie “Shopaholic.” To celebrate the release of the film Patricia has offered us a “Shopaholic Style” section on her web shop. The look above is by far my favorite but I have a feeling you will all go gaga for the accessories, which range from vintage heart-shaped sunglasses to neon clutches. If you have the opportunity you should head to the House of Field shop in the Bowery district of New York. The staff is super friendly and I have yet to resist walking out without dropping some serious dough.

More looks from Ms. Field’s Shopaholic style after the jump.

super 1 cover Walter Van Beirendonck Boxing Shorts

One of my fondest memories of growing up in  Montreal were the frigid  winter evenings when my dad, my sister and I would stay home and watch boxing matches together. While I confess my sister  and I too often attempted to ”practice ” boxing moves on each other (hey that’s what kids do),  I remember always wanting the shiny shorts the boxers wore, dreaming of rocking them to   first grade, flossing on the playground. Imagine my joy of finding that Walter van Beirendonck  actually designs really, really fun stylish ones. Silk Boxing Shorts available at SoupandFish.
