Project Runway Alum Christopher Palu held an iconic show for his SS18 collection at New York Fashion Week. There was a new age “woman warrior” theme present throughout the lineup with leather cut outs and overlays reminiscent of chain mail, and the pèice de résistance being the Joan of Arc printed dress. To echo these styles, the hair was very unique, accentuating the sentiment of the show.
The Marc Jacobs SS18 show was the show seen (and not heard) around the world. Models walked in silence and many of us followed along via Instastory to the audience’s whispers, mostly praising Kaia Gerber. The show took place at the Park Avenue Armory – a feast for the eyes in and of itself. The audience took their seats in a single line around the show floor, each getting their own front row peek of the “runway”. As models lapped around the giant hall, the audience was left enamored for the tropical getaway Jacobs so eloquently created. You actually heard the movement of the fabric – swooshing and clinking – as you were transformed into another world.

Paris – the city of lights, the city of love, and a forefront in fashion and beauty. The world tries to capture the quaint culture of this metropolitan city and in the latest collection from Scruples – Paris Amour – all we see is love!
Ralph Laurens’ display was not only one of classic taste but exclusivity as well –presenting his SS18 line in the comfort of his own home garage. We never doubted Ralph Laurens style, taste, or aesthetic and his presentation gave us one more reason to revel in his perfection. The models danced alongside his comprehensive car collection, giving the audience more than one beauty to admire. Between the cars and the clothes, it was if you were watching a show fit for 007 himself. Cars – ranging from classic to exotic – were the backdrop for the expertly tailored classic clothes Ralph Lauren is so well known for. Pieces were outfitted with pops of red and yellow, indicative of racing stripes and car grill motifs and “Monte Carlo” signage made their way onto the stage without being obtrusive.
If anyone else has been following the adventures of Fashion Week through the eyes of social starlets, you may be privy to the adventures of Caroline Vreeland and her bestie Shea Marie (a.k.a. @PeaceLoveShea). Perhaps one of our favorite moments this week was Shea capturing Caroline dousing herself with a water bottle prior to Marc Jacobs at the Armory to ensure her hair was perfectly “wet” for the show, now that’s dedication.
Contrary to popular (er… most men’s) belief, growing a beard does not mean abandoning your blade and seeing what unfolds. Behind some of the best beards in the socialsphere lie hours of grooming, precise sculpting and skin care. While we round the corner on the new season to come, we thought we’d give you a few tips of advice from one beard lover to another.
While the show itself did not disappoint – with wins for Handmaids Tale, This Is Us and Big Little Lies – this year’s Emmy’s were also a display of glitz and glamour when it came to the beauty and styling we had a few favorites!
Americana is a theme seen throughout many shows at New York Fashion Week this year and as designers head back to their roots, they bring with them new styles of vintage eras. It seems as though Stuart Vevers for Coach SS18 drew upon America in the 70s for his inspiration – he introduced denim and brought back the mailbox bag and western influenced leather jackets – presenting his creations on a glittery backdrop, therefore transforming his designs for a new age crowd. The artist Keith Haring was also an inspiration for Vevers as he drew upon the playfulness of his designs to help inspire some of the spirit of the city.
