The Enfants Riches Déprimés Hat is not for the price concious, but there’s an argument or some sort of platitude that art doesn’t have a price. Rita Ora seems to agree wearing this fetching Enfants Riches Déprimés Hat. Visit the site here.

twinkle-wenlanSister site SecondCityStyle.com has a good feature on this Fall trend (that really shouldn’t be so much of a trend but a stalwart in collections), over-sized knit sweaters. Right off the bat, I’m remembering the Twinkle by Wenlan fall collection of maybe five years that was rife with huge cable knit sweaters (and is still a major part of her Fall collections). But SCS’s feature delves a bit deeper. Head over there for more.

We’re featuring Duro Olowu later on this week on the magazine side of Papierdoll, but I received this e-mail today and read it in it’s entirety about twice. The first thing I thought to myself was, self, someone at JC Penney sold their sold to the devil to get Olowu. Anne-Marie our lead photog in London, will attest that this is a coup as his footprint overseas is much larger than his presence here. But that in itself might be the answer, expose Duro’s collection to an American audience via JC Penney, a trojan horse diffusion line of sorts.

Here’s an excerpt from the release:

The exclusive collection, Duro Olowu for jcp, features apparel and accessories for women, as well as home goods, including dinnerware, stationery and décor items. Ranging in price from $10 to $100, Duro Olowu for jcp will be available this spring from March through May 2013 at most jcpenney stores and jcp.com.

“I am proud to partner with jcpenney to create and launch this new seasonal collection,” said designer Duro Olowu. “Working with jcpenney has allowed me to merge my vision of style and quality with their affordability, resulting in a line that is stylish, beautifully made and accessible. It has been an exciting experience to bring this fashion and home collection to life.

It’s almost asking too much, but it seems as if from the appearance of recent fashion editorials one of two things has happened:

1. Either someone has directed all fashion mags to go light on the photoshopping

or

2. There’s a directive that says curves (even if ever so slight in nature) are a-ok.

That definitely was not the case in runway collections this year. But it’s looking like that in fashion magazines. Case-in-point is this feature of Kate Upton in this month’s Vogue. They could have gone heavier on the photoshop (as they’ve done in the past), but that didn’t happen. I’d highlight where the curves are, but you can tell just by viewing.

Couldn’t help but give a shot out to the cool Rag & Bone Jean Fall 2012 campaign. Featuring model Liu Wen (you’ve seen her during the Rag & Bone runway shows) this season looks to feature a series of headliners again. Already announced is the aforementioned Liu Wen and Jourdan Dunn. In the past Rag & Bone has featured Miranda Kerr, Lily Aldridge, Karolina Kurkova, Candice Swanepoel, Carolyn Murphy and several others. Should be a treat to see who they feature this season.

Faconnable, a french retailer known historically for its menswear collection, recently put out photos for its Autumn/Winter 2012 womenswear items. After looking at the few pics from the collection, the first thought that came into my head was, someone at Gap and Banana Republic should be taking notes. While never known for high-end fashion, the designers there always created more than serviceable looks. I’m sure Faconnable, is aiming at higher price-points, but for what it is and who they are targeting (modern/contemporary), this is spot-on. See photos:

H&M has put together a respectable guide to Autumn fashion in less than 1 minute and 50 seconds (it’s such a quick video with detail). Darker colors? Check. Metallics? Check. More masculine with feminine accent items? Check. And leather. You cannot forget the leather.

At this stage it’s ubiquitous. Much to the chagrin of PETA, it’s added as an accent piece on nearly everything.
