Fashion DIY: How to Channel 1960’s Italian Vintage


One of my favorite eras is the 1960’s, particularly Italian 60’s.  The cinched wastes, sexy hour glass silhouettes, and warm wool–all contribute to a fabulously romantic attire.  Thanks to the Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 RTW collection by Marc Jacobs, this fashion era was revisited brilliantly and the idea of a well-dressed woman is given attention.

Elle Magazine did an amazing  job in giving simple pointers on how to style yourself to channel this oh-so-fab vintage era.  They even include a simple checklist of the 1960’s essentials needed to don the look without seeming to try too hard.  Effortless chic is what we all want.

Are there any other fashion eras you love?

4 Spring 2012 trends seen at NYFW…so far

We’re smack in the middle of New York Fashion Week and the streets of NYC are filled with a bright energy contagious enough to give even Mark Zuckerberg the fashion bug.   With 6 days in, Fashion Week has sprawled out many trends to look forward to for the spring 2012 season.  Some brand spankin’ new and few that will revisit us for a second spring in a row.

#1 3-D Prints – Technological innovations are bound to influence fashion at some point and this was quite evident  at Custo Barcelona’s Spring 2012 runway show.  We saw a brilliant use of 3-D prints.  No, 3-D isn’t only for action packed films or cute Disney movies, fashion has now taken this concept by the horns and applied it to beautiful fabrics that scream “I love summer!” or in Custo’s case, “I love flowers, BIG flowers!”

#2 Wide-legged pants – So this trend is being revisited by many designers for next spring.  J Crew, Vena Cava, and Jenni Kayne all presented ultra-feminine wide-legged pants for their spring 2012 collections.

#3 Bright Colors – This is probably the dominating trend so far at New York Fashion Week for spring 2012. Bright, bold colors were all the rage at Rodarte this afternoon and J Crew and Alice + Olivia worked yellows and black and white stripes like never before.  These are statement-making colors that will up the ante on any summer mood deficiency!

#4 Color-blocking – Color-blocking is around to stay, at least according to the Nicholas K, Ohne Titel, and Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 runway shows. We’re looking forward to it!
