Levi’s new ad campaign is one to stand out. Leaving simplicity behind, it features a stunning color palette of rich neutrals with vibrant pops of color. Presenting its new line of knits styled with its classic jeans, Levi Strauss can surely expect a successful season.
Simone Camille has always been noted for her craftsmanship, expertly working complementary fabrics together into a bag with a story. With a recent launch of another collection she has done it again. The line highlights buttery leather, suede and a mix of amazing details. If you enjoy making a boho statement, you will fall in love!
After a five-year hiatus from design, Hedi Slimane’s return to high fashion this March as Stefano Pilati’s replacement at Yves Saint Laurent came as an interesting change of pace. This appointment, however, created an enormous buzz in the industry as the summer months gave way to an overhaul of the brand, led by Slimane: new brick-and-mortar stores, a completely redesigned website and, most notably, a change of the label’s name to Saint Laurent. Needless to say, the excitement over Slimane’s first collection for the brand reached a fever pitch in the days leading up to Saint Laurent’s Spring 2013 show in Paris, and the label did not disappoint.
Louis Vuitton is extremely well known for its checkered pattern, and thus Marc Jacobs’ salute to the style in their Spring 2013 show was an amicable statement. Models were dressed completely head-to-toe in the pattern, descending to a checkered runway from four grand escalators. It was the perfect, energizing finish to an incredible fashion month!
