In 20 degrees we sacrifice it all for the look. 6 inch heels check, mini skirt check, cute mini jacket? Check.

If you were debating to yourself whether Rubin Singer is deserving of a place in your ever expanding wardrobe, debate no more. The designer’s namesake collection has been seen on a-listers like Shakira and Alicia Keys and you can now add Kerry Washington to that growing list of Rubin Singer devotees. She wore this eye catcher on her Scandal show and it’s been the talk of NYC PR ever since.

MLLE_LOOKBOOK_AW2013

I’m becoming a fan of the Mademoiselle Fall 2013 collection for a handful of reasons. After taking a look at the most recent lookbook (which we’ll be publishing in foto form soon) I thought what appealed to me was the fact that the collection went in a couple of different directions. There’s the vampy leather clad angle skirt that replaces the slit with stretch chiffon which is matched with a silk modal jersey and a leather sleeve. It’s something you can easily see a Hollywood socialite wearing it but at the same time you have this bridal lace dress that is definitely mod inspired as it’s nearly a mile over the knee. It’s as if two different designers put together the collection. That’s a great thing. Keeps the masses guessing.

You can’t go wrong when Walter Chin’s photographs are adorning anything you’re doing. Yes it’s with a commercial outfit like Neiman built for selling, but they got everything right with this book. See photographs below:

Last month in the magazine, we featured Cydelic a handbag collection by designer Choryin Choi. He created an unconventional look with punk-like accents, beads and chain straps. It was a different strong look that most are not used to seeing. I wanted to highlight it in blog format, because this designer I feel is one to watch. His unconventional approach and his ability to mix a myriad of styles together into something cohesive and beautiful, gives hope that fashion can be daring via a new infusion of talent.

Head over to see his full profile and all the photos here.

The Miu Miu holiday windows at Prada are on display now and they are beautiful, classic and unencumbered with excess. Intricately designed with (according to Prada’s press release) 19th Century European Palais and literary cafe’s in mind, the views contains a mix of oriental inspiration and western influences. The windows are on display throughout the holiday season and eternally in photos.

The anonymous designers at MaxMara can toil in obscurity all they want (or rather all the Maramotti family wants), but there’s no mistaking the overall angle. Creating instantly wearable collections that can go from season to season without skipping a beat seems to be the ethos behind this collection. The 2013 season is no different. During the presentation for the Spring 2013 season, the MaxMara collection contained a distinctly safari like bent, not quite African, not quite Indian, just a melange of striped colors, camouflage and prints that range in the realm of animal to floral. The blouses had lightweight hoods and were the length of t-shirts in some instances. The collection was styled with oversized chunky bags and equally open toe chunky clogs with a strapped around the heel.

An elegant but by-the-numbers collection from a designer that has hundreds (if not thousands) of stores worldwide.
