Opening Ceremony Spring/Summer ’11 Look Book

19 Jan

I know I’m about a week late on this, but I finally got my hands on the S/S ’11 Opening Ceremony look book shot by what must be a very busy Terry Richardson. Featuring the imitable Lindsey Wixson, the collection comes across as somewhat basic but nevertheless irreverent and fun. Ikat, sheer fabrics, and slinky silhouettes rule Opening Ceremony S/S ’11 in this season’s muted brights and funky detailing. Here are some of my picks, but definitely peep the entire collection at Opening Ceremony.

The Portland Collection by Pendleton

14 Jan

Native American prints and knits have held a sizable chunk of our hearts over the past season (ahem, Pendleton x Opening Ceremony) and if Pendleton’s newest collection is any indicator, the allure may grow stronger next winter.

The 121 year-old Maine heritage brand has unveiled the Portland Collection, its contemporary line designed from Pendleton’s own archive of textiles and prints. Sweaters, dresses, weekend bags, and even an oversized blanket are included in the collection, due out next Fall/Winter 2011.

While I hate nothing more than contemplating next winter’s inevitability when we’re almost to spring, I have to admit I’m a little excited at the prospect of adding a few singular pieces from the collection to next winter’s wardrobe.

Not Just for the Boys: Varsity Jackets

11 Jan

Members Only Varsity Jacket, $59.99, available at Urban Outfitters

One of my personal favorite trends for menswear last fall was the varsity jacket, which much to my pleasure exploded all over New York. You couldn’t throw a football without catching a well-dressed guy in the college staple. Now, much like its cousin the shrunken leather jacket, this versatile and playful piece is no longer just for boys, free to roam from tomboyish to feminine and everywhere in between. Take a look at some of the best looks in women’s varsity jackets after the jump.

7 Jan

Ruche Winter Cabin Sweater Leggings, $39.99 and Revolve Autumn Cashmere Navajo Wrap, $479

Spring ’11 collections are budding all over newsstands and the Internet preoccupying everyone’s mind (including mine) with things that won’t be wearable on the East Coast for at least another three months. We’ve got another couple of slushy, cold months to ride-out, so you might as well keep yourself warm and snuggly in these cozy sweater leggings and chic Navajo-inspired knits.  Continue reading

Têca Spring/Summer ’11 Runway Collection

5 Jan

Brazilian brand Têca‘s Spring/Summer ’11 collection defines how powerful simplicity can be in any look. Designed by Helô Rocha, Têca strikes a perfect balance between a military edge and feminine detail in florals and lace. The textures are brilliant, and I especially love the memorable marigold pieces punctuating the line. Watch the runway video below…
