Jimmy Choo Re-Issuing ‘The Feather Shoe’ Worn In Sex In The City By Carrie Bradshaw

13 Oct Jimmy-Choos-Feathered-Shoe-100232

London-based luxury shoe brand Jimmy Choo are celebrating their 15th birthday by re-issuing a range of iconic shoes and a coffee table book, with proceeds from sales going to charity.

Amongst the range of 15 shoes from the Choo archives are ‘the Feather’, a pair which Carrie famously lost in the early episodes of Sex and the City, and ‘Fleur’, a pair of striped heels embellished with a large flower which Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon wore when she received her OBE from the Queen. Mellon told WWD: “These are shoes that have a personal story for me, or resonate with the customer.”

Ten percent of proceeds from the ‘Icons’ shoes will go to the Jimmy Choo Foundation, a charity which tackles women’s issues such as sexism, domestic violence and the sex slave trade.

A coffee table book of Jimmy Choo’s history will accompany the classic shoes, as well as a mainly photographic book called ‘Jimmy Choo XV’ that tells the company’s history through 15 iconic shoes. 100 percent of the proceeds from the book will go to the Jimmy Choo Foundation.

The Icons collection and Jimmy Choo history books are set to hit stores in November.

Fashion Show: Shop Dolce Gabbana Summer Collection 2012 Online ‘Must Haves’

23 Sep Dolce-Gabbana-SS12-Must-Haves-800515

Photos Dolce Gabbana


If you could distil the D&G SS12 Womens wear show what essence would you get? Foulard’s. These traditional, sometimes oldy-worldly accessories have been totally reinvented by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana and have become sexy and relevant once again.

The D&G collection for SS 12 is a real plethora of prints. From geometric to heraldic, from baroque to naïf, passing by polka dolts and stripes, the foulard, in its many forms has been adopted by the design duo and reinvented for 2012. With the idea of deconstructing the typically bourgeois silk handkerchief and challenging its traditional use, Dolce and Gabbana have created a significant collection with strong cultural overtones.

Taking the foulard in its purest form, (each swatch measures the traditional 70x70cm), as the foundation of the collection, the Italian design duo have created a visual feast. Unlike previous collections where mix and matching were at their centre, this season the effect is less like patchwork and more about actually tying together multiple handkerchiefs, lending it a more cerebral feel. Details like folds and knots take the collection away from the banal, giving it a fresh angle.

Worthy of particular mention are the sky-high platform wedges. The upper is made of an entire foulard; 70×70, which tied around the foot becomes a silky, light as a feather peep toe bootie. In contrast, the wedge is made of wood and is printed with a different style.  Dolce Gabbana.IT

Fun Trend This Season The Art Of Layering Bracelets Seen At New York Fashion Week

16 Sep Trend-Alert-Fashion-Stack-Bracelets-500545

When it comes to jewelry here at New York Fashion Week, more is more. Front rowers are layering up their wrists with five or six bracelets at a time. The key to the perfect stack? It’s fashionmatics! Just take one chunky watch, add some Eddie Borgo spikes, throw in a few friendship bracelets and you’re good to go.

A fun trend to try this season is the art of layering bracelets. The key to making this look work with your outfit is to choose a color in your outfit you want to highlight. So if you’re wearing mostly casual neutral/beige hues, you’ll probably want to steer more towards earthy tones. Earthy tone accessories also go well with corals, orange, yellow, brown, grey, denim and any prints that consist of any of the above colors. Try mixing and matching different materials like leather, enamel, metal and rope.

If your outfit consists of bolder colors, like red, pink, blue or black, you may want to consider more silver or gunmetal tone pieces.

The trendy way to layer bracelets is to layer with a watch (or two) from the same color family, along with a couple statement rings.

To add some more interest, try painting your nails in a funky color, like a matte creamy seafoam or pastel yellow. Have fun with it!
