Mary-Kate And Ashley Olsen Launch New Range of Luxury Handbags ‘The Row’

30 Jul

Twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will launch their new range of luxury handbags. They are American movie and television actress.

The new collection of luxury handbags has been launched under their fashion label ‘The Row’. Stated to debut Barney’s departmental store, New York in August, bag consist of nine designs including a day tote, backpack, doctor bag and a shoulder bag made from python and alligator.

The bag collection is an amalgamation of new age style and old world glamour. The bags look very chic and contemporary despite a hint of old world styling. Twin sisters recently also dressed up US First lady Michelle Obama.

While we look forward to every new collection from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen‘s The Row, Fall 2011 promises to be particularly crave-worthy. Once again, the duo has gone above and beyond to track down materials that push the boundary of contemporary luxury: strips of mink are woven into cashmere knits, double-sided fox fur provides unprecedented coziness.

Sleek and sophisticated, they blend old-world glamour with contemporary chic—a rare balance that has come to define The Row, season after season.

Below, we listen in as the designers interview one another about inspiration, collaboration, and raiding Picasso‘s wardrobe.

Mary-Kate to Ashley

Mary-Kate Olsen: What is your favorite piece of clothing you’ve designed for The Row?

Ashley Olsen: I would have to say our first t-shirt. We have evolved so much since that first tee, but every collection is based on the same standards—luxurious fabrics, impeccable fit, and the highest level of quality.

MKO: What are the wardrobe staples you can’t live without?

AO: A great pair of vintage jeans, a tailored suit, a crisp white button down, Parisian stripes, and a great men’s watch.

MKO: If you could tap any designer to collaborate with The Row, who would it be?

AO: For Resort 2012, we collaborated with Ileana Makri on a small fine jewelry collection. It’s all about what feels right in the moment and what works with each collection. I cannot say who we will partner with next, but we feel it is important that we have a strong connection with the person, as is the case with Ileana, and that we have a passion for the product.

MKO: What’s the best fashion city: L.A.? New York? Paris? London? Tokyo?

AO: I don’t believe you can say any city is the best city for fashion. We started The Row in L.A., we are now based in New York, and we are about to open our first permanent showroom in Paris. We also have extremely important retail partners in London and Tokyo. They are all important fashion cities in their own right.

MKO: What’s the best fashion era of all time?

AO: There are important style contributions from almost every era. Drawing on the right references at the right time is the key.

Ashley to Mary-Kate

AO: What are your favorite materials and textiles to work with?

MKO: I love furs and skins because the textures are so compelling. We push ourselves and our team to consider new ideas and techniques for incorporating them.

AO: Who are some of your favorite designers (past and present)?

MKO: John Galliano, Yohji Yamamoto. They have and continue to redefine fashion.

AO: Do you have a style philosophy? For whom do you dress?

MKO: I dress for me and usually whatever suits my mood.

AO: If you could raid any person’s wardrobe (alive or dead), who would it be?

MKO: Picasso.

AO: What current trend would you like to see disappear?

MKO: My problem is not with the trends themselves, but the fact that trends are constantly repeating themselves.

AO: Where do you go and what do you do to unwind?

MKO: I like to travel when I can, which isn’t often. Otherwise, I like to be at home in New York with friends.

The Luxury Italian Fashion Brand Introduces First Womens Fragrance Bottega Veneta

27 Jul

The luxury fashion brand introduces its first women’s fragrance with this artistic Bruce Weber film starring Nine D’Urso, daughter of Ines De La Fressange.

Bottega Veneta, the luxury leather manufacturer has unveiled their first fragrance,  conceptualized by Thomas Maier, the creative director at Bottega in collaboration with Coty Prestige.

Maier explains his inspiration for the project as a mental picture of a “room with old wood floors, library walls and leather-bound books with the windows open wide, the breeze coming in and cut grass, hay, moss, garden flowers, growing through the room and everything mixing up”.

The result is an alluring blend of oak moss, Brazilian pink peppercorns, Indian jasmine sambac, Indian patchouli and Italian bergamot. All these special scents are captured in elegant bottles made by Murano glassmakers.

The perfume will only be found in one of the 165 Bottega Veneta boutiques around the world, at 395 $ (about 275 €) for 3 oz, along with other beauty products will be available together with the new fragrance are body lotions, body creams and shower gels.

For the ad campaign, Bottega Veneta chose the image of Nine d’Urso, the eldest daughter of Inés de la Fressange, the renowned French fashion icon. “I chose Nine to introduce this fragrance because there is something classically elegant about her, yet she is totally modern. She conveys a sense of heritage worn lightly but with respect”, Maier said. The pictures of young Nine for the fragrance campaign will be taken by Bruce Weber. On July 17 the first launch of the new fragrance will take place at Harrods.

Fake Fashion: How To Spot A Fake Louis Vuitton Bag From The Real One!

20 Jul

Fake fashion is a $450 billion dollar business. The bigger the brand name, the bigger the payoff for counterfeiters such as fake Louis Vuitton bags. Its signature series of canvas monogram bags is a prime target for knock-off artists and manufacturers. Many of these counterfeit Louis Vuitton bags are so convincing, they easily fool the average consumer. If you are in the market for the real deal, here’s how to make sure you’re not getting gypped.

  1. Step 1: The Price Is Wrong

    Louis Vuitton monogram canvas bags run from $375 and up, with the majority of the bags selling for over $1000. If you’re buying a brand new Louis Vuitton bag for less than $300, you’re not getting a deal, you’re getting a fake.

  2. Step 2: What’s In A Name?

    If there is an “LV” anywhere on the bag that is crooked or on a stitch or seam, it is not the real thing. The “LV” on a real Louis Vuitton purse will be carefully placed on the bag so that it’s not cut off by a seam or snap. Besides the famous initials being monogrammed onto the bag itself, the zipper pull and purse snaps will all be branded as well. The zipper pull should also be brass hardware and heavy to the touch. Many imitators pay attention to the details so make sure you’re paying even closer attention. If the seams are uneven or the monogram is the slightest bit off, it’s a fake. Louis Vuitton bags are all hand crafted and each one is perfectly assembled. Spend some time on the manufacturer’s website to study the details that make the bag authentic.

  3. Step 3: Material Matters

    The Louis Vuitton monogram bags are made of canvas but the handles and piping are natural cowhide leather. The color of the leather should be a light tan, with the edge dyed red and the stitching in yellow. After a few weeks of handling your bag, the leather handles will oxidize and fade to a darker brown. If your leather handles don’t change color, it’s a fake.

  4. Step 4: Location

    Louis Vuitton doesn’t have any authorized street resellers so resist these so called “deals” they are trying to sell you. Also be careful when buying bags online, although you can find authentic Louis Vuitton bags, there are also a plethora of fakes. Pay attention to the seller feedback and ask about buyer protection and the return policy. One website that is authorized to sell Louis Vuitton bags is www.eluxury.com.

  5. Step 5: Trust Your Gut

    When it comes down to it, go with your gut. If you feel funny about where or how much you’re paying, walk away. For more information about how to tell the authenticity of a Louis Vuitton bag, visit a Louis Vuitton retailer or call the headquarters at 212-758-8877
