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.

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.

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.

If you don’t have the Ovation network, and you can get it, I highly recommend this channel as it has great programming specific to the arts, fashion et al. More specifically, you get to see Anna Wintour’s approach in working with young budding designers on this show. The season premiere happened yesterday and had a more insider and technical feel than Project Runway. That show had some detractors that specifically targeted the over-the-top reality show feel (a by-product of direction and production). This show features less of that so it may appeal to a bit of a different audience. Season 2 started yesterday November 5th and runs all the way to the final. Vogue this month has a feature on the talent appearing on the show. See it here.

Her new single is out and the cover is classic Stefani, but even more so, classic La Perla (she’s made a good choice).

Pictured: Gwen Stefani wears La Perla’s Signature Talisman Bustier from the Fall/Winter 2014 collection on the cover and to promote her new single “Baby Don’t Lie.”

My remembrance of Oscar de la Renta will always be of Jackie Kennedy Onassis in this beautiful piece. He will be missed.

You can’t deny that “Orange is the New Black” star Laverne Cox wears Monique Lhuillier well. She’s seen here at the premiere of her documentary “The T Word” on Transgender men and women. The dress is part of Lhuillier’s collection and is a plum lace evening gown with sheer yoke, sleeves and grosgrain details from ML.

This is my best attempt at a preview, but having seen designer’s Tatjana Schuck and Benita Shun’s IIKONEE Spring Summer 2015 lookbook, I can honestly say they’ve created a beautiful collection. We’ll be featuring the full looks towards the end of the week with our usual commentary, but here’s the start:

Another interesting sighting at the Teen Vogue event was Bailee Madison wearing a skirt by designer Ekaterina Kukhareva. A graduate of the famous Central St. Martin’s school in London, Kukhareva started her named collection in 2009 and has been a prolific dresser to young starlets since that time. Here’s a link to see more.
