mikoh-swim-2015

Oleema and Kalani Miller’s Mikoh Swim collection is one of the more popular collections being shown at Miami Swim. The highly feminine and strong look not only encompasses bikinis and coverups but a beautiful white halter suit displayed during their 2015 runway. We’re talking resort wear that European designers envy and emulate. The surfer influence is more than evident. We’re looking forward to viewing this collection at Miami Swim next week.

Acacia Swimwear

Acacia Swimwear

Received questions as to what we’ll be looking forward to during Miami Swim. Despite all the press around IMGs abandonment (which we’re hearing is temporary), the shows are still going on. So what are we looking forward to? I’d say right off the bat, Gottex, Wildfox Swim (think colorful designs and patriotic themes on bikinis), Acacia Swimwear (think high end bikinis, start working out), Rob & Lulu and Tory Praver. Yes, it’s going to be filled with plenty of shows, keep an eye on this space and on our Instagram for photos from the show.

As ornate jewelry goes (and we know it can get really over the top), this is very tastefully done. Laverne Cox was wearing this at the recent Orangecon event in New York city.

Kendall Jenner is at it again, making certain designers huge. This one is deservedly so as the Lamarque collection is definitely a looker.

Here’s some background on the designer:
LaMarque Collection was born from the innovative mind of fashion designer Ifigenia Papadimitriou. The Montreal-based contemporary brand specializes in leather jackets, leather and mixed media sportswear, down-filled puffers, and Italian wool coats with leather detailing. The Fall/Winter 2013 collection marked the debut of the LaMarque brand, although the design and executive team behind the brand have more than 25 years of experience in the fashion industry.

LaMarque’s foundation and heritage is leather, but its vision and its design reach extends far beyond just leather jackets. LaMarque takes pride in the quality of each garment and believes that the workmanship of every piece is not just a matter of production, but a matter of artistry. Each piece is hand-cut, hand-stitched, expertly tailored and brilliantly styled, mixing a modern design edge with classical craftsmanship.

miranda-lambert

Have to say that I’m not a big country music fan, but Miranda Lambert, may change that. Her looks were stunning at the Academy of Country Music Awards wearing Bibhu Mohapatra.

Had to highlight this one as it’s going to be a great biopic done the HBO way. Bessie looks at Bessie Smith’s rise as a blues singer in America in the 1920s. The flapper fashions of the 1920s will be on full display. The costuming was done with the aid of Unique Vintage and they’ve gone full tilt to illustrate how to get the looks from the film.

Bessie premieres on HBO May 16th at 8pm.

I’ll cut to the chase and answer the post’s question. Yes.

But that comes with a caveat. The caveat is that Apple isn’t really placing the value on the watch, you are. If no one goes and buys it, it will be landfill material.

But that’s not the case.

We value the watch because it is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. There are others out there that are personally worth more, Patek, Concorde, Rolex, Audemars, IWC and countless immediately come to mind. Those are specifically and intentionally without digital components. The Apple watch tries to meld both the digital and the aesthetic all into one. Will it work? Nearly every celebrity via their stylist has already put in an order. It was a success before Tim Cook got on stage.

So is it worth $10,000? Sure. They could have price it at $20,000. But $10,000 is just enough to make you work hard to want to get it and if not, there’s always the $349 one (but that’s not really the one you want, is it?).
