MONIQUE LHUILLIER PRE-FALL 2010

My friend Colin just this second brought the Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2010 line to my attention with the headline of a “fashion orgasm”. So of course, with hype like that, I had to look into it. He didn’t embelish anything! The collection heavily encorporates two of my three favorite colors; black and gold. So enjoy!
-Andrew J


Favorite! Hands down.



If she isn’t red carpet heaven, I don’t know who is.



Really love this look as well. It’s kinda Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

ROBERTO CAVALLI ACCESSORIES

Again it all started over a pair of shoes… I saw these Roberto Cavalli Spider-web suede sandals yesterday before I hung out with Nicolas. I kept browsing Cavalli’s accessory line and found these awesome gems

Okay this one is cool because I liked the design from the beginning, and THEN I found out it’s for the tech savvy fashionista… it’s a USB stick!


Love the clunky rings too!

LANVIN | THE BEAUTY IN THE DETAILS

When I saw the shoes above at Bergdorf Goodman today I immediately sent a picture to my friend Nicolas who I know loves all things Lanvin and would definitely appreciate these. I think I called them something like the “Lanvin genius shoe” or something. After chatting about them for a couple minutes, he redirected my attention to some of the other items he liked in the Fall 2010 show and strongly encouraged me to check them out. So here are some of my favorite detail shots from the Lanvin Fall/Winter 2010 show.

I want these boots yesterday! Not even kidding.

What I really like about this line from Lanvin is that is subtly incorporates color, be it a stretch of green on the shoe, to a dark yellow pattern on a otherwise dark sweater. It’s just a great overall season for Lanvin Men’s.



See these orange gloves are a perfect example, can be worn with an all black, conservative outfit just to be a statement piece without hitting people over the head. It says; I have style, but I don’t have to flaunt it.


I love this so much it’s ended up in my “inspiration” folder. Denim is definitely everywhere right now, and this is a nice denim look but still canvas. I love the double wrapped belt as well!
