Fashion Exhibit: Andre Leon Talley + Oscar de la Renta collab [video]

This is a brilliant collaboration between Andre Leon Talley and fashion icon Oscar de la Renta.  The pair collaborated on an exhibit featuring clothing worn by the subjects of paintings by artist Joaquin Sorolla.

Oscar and Andre take us on a personal tour of the exhibit in New York City at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute.

You’ll find gowns weighing way over 100 pounds and contemporary clothing showcasing the Spanish influence on fashion.

The exhibit titled JOAQUÍN SOROLLA AND THE GLORY OF SPANISH DRESS is still running, so if you’re in NYC head over–it’s one not to miss!

LA Made Fall 2011 collection

Most of our brand partners have already rolled out their fall/winter 2011 collections.  I mean, fall is in full swing, although it may not feel like it in some parts of the country (it was almost 80 degrees over the weekend in NYC!).  Los Angeles based fashion house, LA Made created a stunning fall collection that was clearly influenced by music, nature, and vintage clothing–in other words, this is the quintessential fall-in-LA wardrobe that happens to work perfectly into any city closet.

Here are some of our favorite looks taken from the LA Made Fall 2011 lookbook. You can shop the entire collection online right on their site.

The perfect fall day dress, the all-American sexy leather jacket with a modern print dress, and the feminine blouson with high-waisted pants made our top 3 looks by LA Made.  Which is your favorite?
