The Lanvin for H&M collection held its star studded show in New York last night.

The catwalk show marks the looming launch date, of Lanvin for H& M, in stores November 20 in the US and Canada, and on November 23 for the rest of the world.

This collection is by far, the season’s must-have party frock, bravo Alber Elbaz!

leave a comment »


Shop :: Z-Spoke Fall 2010  @ Saks

Earlier this year, designer Zac Posen launched his new Z-Spoke Spring 2011 at New York Fashion Week, introducing  his line to a wider audience.  And what better platform to continue that effort, than America’s Next Top Model (ANTM).

Zac Posen debuted Z-Spoke Fall 2010 on ANTM’s Cycle 15 ,Episode 8 runway challenge. The elegant Chelsey who modeled his purple turtle neck dress, was selected as the winner, and walked away with  5 hot looks from Z-spoke.

Z -Spoke Fall 2010  carries influences from his existing collections, though some pieces have been made from scratch. I have highlighted a few similarities below, on pieces used on ANTM’s cycle 15. Zac Posen maintains a distinct air of  his mastery,  with this affordable line.

Thirty years on designer Claude Montana is still causing a buzz on the fashion scene. With  news of a highly-anticipated coffee table book , set to hit stores in France on Nov 2.

The young Montana first caught the attention of  fashion’s elite, during Parisian ready-to-wear in 1980.Claude  showcased one of his best designs, the  Batman leather trench coats. The crowd of more than 200o buyers and reporters gave Montana a standing ovation for his avant-garde collection.

Claude’s use of severe silhouettes, power shoulders and leather continues to influence today’s popular trendsetters like Lady Gaga [Ottawa Citizen].
