About LeilUna Collection

British born model Leilani Dowding and designer Una Malan crossed paths in Los Angeles in 2007. As destiny had it, they quickly became best friends and their passion for beauty inspired them to create their line of beautifully fitting, versatile dresses, LeilUna Collection.

“All of our dresses are extremely sexy, yet incredibly comfortable and easy to wear.  It’s all about the cut and the way the fabric drapes – that makes all the difference” say the girls, who are quite often found on the Red Carpet or at Black Tie Hollywood events.

Part of the ingenious practicality of the collection is that the pieces are ideal for women who have to look like stars at a moments notice.  Zipping around the world, both Leilani and Una have to deal with packing light and being able to look like superstars upon arrival to their destinations. LeilUna dresses, which come in a variety of colors in matte and sparkly stretch jersey, not only pack tightly and easily into your suitcase, many of them can also be worn as tops over leggings and jeans, adding many more style options without taking up hardly any space at all!  The designs can be dressed up for a special event or dressed down for the daytime or a more casual dinner with a special friend. LeilUna Collection has graced two of the biggest music awards shows in the US and UK, having been worn to the Grammy’s and the Brit Awards.  Their show stopping styles make women look nothing less than sensational.

“We create dresses that we really love and want to wear ourselves.  We want to be able to grab any of them from our wardrobe and know that it’s going to look amazing, without having to try too hard”. While all of the pieces are stunning, Leilani and Una both agree on one thing “Our Classic Backless Dress is our absolute, go to, cannot be without staple for any evening or event occasion.  It is our signature piece and we always have to check with each other before going out, so that we are not wearing the same one!”.

LeilUna Collection is a must for a woman who is a smart, savvy shopper and wants to look sexy and beautiful when glamour calls!

The collection can also be found in boutiques in California, Florida, New York and London, UK.

10 Top NYC Fashion Collection Trends For Spring 2011

31 May

Above, from left: Spring 2011 fashion week trends and runway looks from Marc by Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Jason Wu, Tommy Hilfiger. Photos courtesy of the designers.

1. The Re-Return of the Wide-Leg Trouser—For some of us, the high-waisted, wide-leg trouser will never really go out of style. So, when we saw it popping up on practically everyone’s runways—the sidewalks outside the shows, included!—we knew these ’70s-inspired bottoms were back with a vengeance. And Marc, Tory, and Tommy all fashioned them to perfection.

Above, from left: Spring 2011 runway looks from Carlos Miele, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Chris Benz. Photos courtesy of the designers.

2. A Zest For Orange—Rich mango, persimmon, ripe pumpkin—however you slice it, bold orange was one of spring’s sweetest color trends. And whether paired with white at Marc Jacobs or with bad-girl booties at Chris Benz, this intense shade feels fresh once again.

Above, from left: Spring 2011 runway looks from Alexander Wang, VPL, Rag & Bone, Altuzarra. Photos courtesy of the designers.

3. Futuristic Militaristic—We have to honor Victoria Bartlett for planting the seeds of this trend when she first launched her line VPL in 2003. And this season, a venerable army of otherworldly whites, straps, and harnesses all pointed to a more ethereal, somewhat abstract take on the more traditional military trends of seasons past.

4. A Full Skirt Moment—The mini craze that has swept closets and women’s gams for the past few years has slowly given way to longer hemlines (could that century-old connection to a conservative economy be true?). But spring’s skirt obsession wasn’t so much about restraint as it was about elegance and sophistication. And the styles we spotted at Marc Jacobs, Suno, and Band Of Outsiders were nothing short of serious statements themselves.

5. The All-Day Pajama Party— We’re not sure how practical it is, but we really, really loved all the many plays on pajama dressing, from Karen Walker’s sleepy-time head-to-toe look to Suno’s slouchy dotted silk trousers.

6. The Old-School Halter Neck— Something about the many appearances of gorgeous halter-necks and unusual necklace-like cinching methods reminded us of a certain someone’s mom from her very glamorous summer days spent by the sea in Ibiza. Almost universally paired with long, languid summer gowns, this little detail yielded lots of impact.

7. Another Study In Neutrals—Maybe it’s Phoebe Philo’s influence at Céline permeating everyone’s mood-boards, or perhaps it’s just the chaotic energy out there in the world that’s driving designers to simplify their palettes, but spring was no stranger to neutrals—especially those warm and soothing shades of sand, camel, and ivory all nicely framed with dark swipes of black.

8. Long and Longer—Again, instead of showing more skin—during a season that loves a lot of it!—designers like Prabal Gurung, Rag & Bone, and Tommy Hilfiger all chose to show less with lots longer skirt and dress lengths. Skimming the floor with knee-high slits or sheer fabrics, these ankle-grazing styles gave the season a much more grown-up, almost serious appeal.

9. The Prettiest Chartreuse Ever—No shade seems to garner as much controversy as chartreuse. No, it’s not for everyone, but thanks to Miuccia Prada back in the day, we’re occasionally introduced to this somber green shade in surprisingly chic ways. And such was the case this season, when designers like Rodarte, Jason Wu, and VPL all ventured into chartreuse territory with abandon…and wonderful results.

10. Dolman Sleeves, Please—Blouses have been gravitating to fuller, boxier, cropped cuts for some time now, so it was no surprise to see so many designers playing around with even fuller silhouettes and classic dolman sleeves. Some of the blouses we saw referenced vintage surf hoodies, while others felt very modern and almost evening-like. Our favorites: Yigal Azrouël and Vena Cava, who managed to give this typically casual piece an old Hollywood sophistication. We loved!

 

 

Summary: The days following New York Fashion Week are always somewhat schizophrenic. The dust is barely settling from all the shows, the taxis, and the very late nights, and we’re already wondering what’s to come from London and the rest of the shows on the horizon. But what NYFW does that none of the others do, is lead the way for all those big ideas that anchor the season. The New York collections come first, so we naturally applaud all our favorite designers—from Phillip Lim and Jason Wu to Rag & Bone and Marc Jacobs—for making all of these bold declarations first…and so beautifully. So, herein lies our list of the spring 2011 fashion trends that made the fashion week shows so unique and iconic. And if you’re like us, you’ll want to start giving some of these looks a whirl right now…those high-waisted wide-leg trousers and the dolman sleeve? We’re on it.

Lavin To Collaborate With H&M For Women’s and Men’s Apparel Collection

17 Nov

Sneak peek: The first four looks from the Lanvin for H&M collection. Photo courtesy of H&M

French brand Lavin is the latest luxury brand to collaborate with fast-fashion retailer H&M on a designer apparel collection for men and women.

Designed by Lanvin artistic director Alber Elbaz  and men’s wear designer Lucas Ossendrijver, the Lanvin for H&M women’s and men’s apparel collection goes on sale on November 23 in about 200 H&M doors worldwide. To build up the hype for ahead of the launch, the collection will be unveiled through a film on the H&M website on November 2.

“I have said in the past that I would never  do a mass-market collection, but what intrigued me was the idea of  H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public,” said Elbaz on Thursday.

“It is very much a Lanvin collection, using their cut and tailoring, with lots of focus on form and details for both women and men,” added Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M. “The launch in November is going to be full of wonderful surprises.”

Previously, H&M collaborations with designers such as Karl Lagerfeld,  Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons and Sonia Rykiel, sold out quickly with consumers often lining up hours in advance of the collections’ in-store debut.

You will have to wait until Nov. 23 to get your hands on the highly anticipated Lanvin for H&M collection, the fast-fashion retailer has been so kind as to release an image of four looks from the line to whet our appetites.

Summary: I don’t know anyone who does not like H&M!!!! Many of my favorite pieces of clothing have come from H&M store’s.

I love the fact that the newest fashion trends are always there. Being H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB (operating as H&M), is a Swedish clothing company, known for its fast fashion clothing offerings for women, men, teenagers and children. H&M has around 2,000 stores in 37 countries.

Living in the United State’s we are known to be at least three years behind in fashion. Being that H&M originated in Europe they are known to be ahead when it comes to fashion. So if you dare to know what the newest styles and trends in clothing. Shop at H&M.

I like how everything is organized. I don’t have to thumb through the racks when I am shopping. I like to see things nicely displayed when I shop. Make’s getting around the store and shopping much more easier.

They have amazing displays that allow you to see each piece of clothing in closer detail. The atmosphere is relaxing and the store seems to be clean. Definitely fashion forward clothing.

H&M describes its mission as “Fashion and quality at the best price”.

Don’t forget to check out the Lanvin collection on sale November 23 in over 200 stores. I posted the links for you to keep up with the opening day of his collection.

As well as take a look at the online store and find your nearest H&M locations by accessing it from the H&M website.

The H&M brand make’s great Holiday gift’s for Christmas and stocking stuffers.
