I was not crazy about Alexander Wang’s S/S 2012 collection, but I did rather like his T by Alexander Wang S/S 2012 selection. The minimal palette and lightweight fabrications gave the collection a really effortless grace. He did exactly what was meant to do with this collection, create beautiful everyday separates at a accessible price [...]
I really like Jill Stuart. I know that if I ever want something that will make me feel really soft and feminine and look great on my body I will be able to find it in her store. The Jill Stuart S/S 2012 collection was more sweet than anything else. Her palm tree prints, pastel [...]
I just stumbled on this very visual series by Brooklyn based photographer Ian Addison – In 2010 Adisson’s always kept a small plastic camera in his bag and occasionally this camera would accidentally fire while inside to produce these colorful, abstract photos. These ancillary creations were
Contrary to all the media hype, I am really not much of a Prabal Gurung fan. Infact, I don’t recall ever having featured any of his collections on Trendland, but it seems that for S/S 2012 Prabal Gurung really stepped out of his comfort zone when he experimented with this very serious custom print, which [...]

Well as usual DVF had a lot to pick from on the print front for S/S 2012, but that was not the highlight for me. I really fell partial to the drapey color-blocked looks and the more tailored/boyish silhouettes. The combination of the soft palette and the novelty tops used for the tailored looks felt [...]
We saw a really nice Ready to Wear Collection by Robert Geller for S/S 2012. Geller took menswear essentials and threw in a nice edge to spice them up while keeping it broad enough and totally wearable. There was some nice textural layering happening in a lot of the looks, we saw a mesh peeking [...]
BUY HERE Listen to “Spitfire” here Thank goodness for Porter Robinson. At only 19 years old, the North Carolina-native has come into electronic territory with an emotional potency. His track “Spitfire” tells its own story as it evolves and progresses from a slow-paced and darkened melody to an explosion of dominating electro.
American photographer and socialite Douglas Friedman has an awesome portfolio. After working as an assistant to David Fincher and traveling the world for 2 years, he is now shooting between NY and LA for top publications such as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, V, Vogue, Wallpaper, Elle Décor and Vanity Fair – Photographing [...]
We always know to expect major androgyny from Rad Hourani, but this season crossed an invisible line for me that almost made me feel uncomfortable. I could not even feature many of the looks the guys were wearing because they were just too extreme. Maybe you may remember a piece I did on Men in [...]
Cult jewelry line MANIAMANIA is always good for a beautiful campaign, and this 3-part video “The Third Mind” is mind-blowing proof of that. Showcasing their new 2012 Spring Collection, the first film was released on The New York Times T Magazine site, while the second film, “Kaleidescope” was launched exclusively on none other than V Magazine.
