Yes, these ikat wedges really do exist. And no, they won’t run you hundreds of dollars. Why? Because Julian Louie has collaborated with Aldo with a collection of to-die-for wedges as part of his Spring 2011 collection. Are you jumping for joy, yet?
We were instantly inspired by this gorgeous rainbow fishtail braid in Free People‘s September catalog and decided to recreate it, adding our own little twist: making the braid into a wearable hat accessory. Who said braids were limited to summer and hair?
A newbie to 1st Dibs, I’m not sure if I should feel disappointed that I didn’t know about this sooner or elated that I now have first dibs on the best selection of vintage accessories I have ever seen. I’m in love with this vintage 80s Hermés watch with the H’s running down the middle of the strap. A vintage Dior turban…I mean, honestly? And we haven’t even started talking about the furniture and clothing yet.
Charlotte Ronson: Angela Chase was Ronson’s inspiration and the result is a collection that is wearable and my like personal favorite of hers to date. Like, totally.
Risto Bimbiloski: Inspired by all things celestial, Bimbiloski’s Spring 2011 collection is unique, fresh, beautiful and cosmic.
ADAM: Spring’s hot colors of reds, terra cottas, & greys were all prevelent in Adam Lippes’ Collection but the romantic whites were what really won me over….big time.
Suno: Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty are inspirational masters at mixing prints and we have been huge fans since their start. This season, they introduced swimwear and a collection of insane wedges in collaboration with Loeffler Randall, to be released in February 2011.
Derek Lam: Denim, solids and breezy prints. Clean, crisp and classic. Love.
Look out for Lauren’s top 5 from the 2nd half of NY Fashion Week later this week!
