Rag & Bone blew us away with a futuristic, Inuit inspired collection packed with electric blues and rusty oranges color-blocked with earth tones, banded trousers, striped leggings and tweed ponchos. A collection that makes us crazy enough to wish for arctic weather conditions all year long is honestly WTF brilliant.
Walking into Norman Ambrose‘s debut presentation at New York Fashion Week was like going to a glamourous party in the 70s where you didn’t really belong but also didn’t ever want to leave. Being fashion week newbies, we must say presentations are more interesting than the runway shows as you can actually take the time to appreciate the details. And honestly . . . the details! We adored the the cashmere knits adorned with old english coins, the sequined and feathered gowns, and embroidered blouses and cocktail dresses. Norman Ambrose. Don’t forget the name.
Today we saw an amazing Edwardian & menswear inspired collection at Ruffian. Then Jason Wu’s Victorian & Baroque inspired collection really pushed us over the edge, having us immediately lusting over cigarette pants, lace and silk blouses, and bow ties! And honestly, how covetable is the grey sweater with the lace detail down the sides?!?
Lauren and I spent the majority of our afternoon yesterday at the IFB Evolving Influence Blogger Conference, live blogging on behalf of Shopbop during the “Working With Brands Gracefully” panel. It was an incredibly inspiring experience and we loved putting a face to the names of so many amazing bloggers! Check out our summary of the panel discussion here.
