Your Favorite Shoe Model Mari Giudicelli Now Has Her Own Line!

Fashion

For many years we have been seeing the shapely legs and pretty face of Mari Giudicelli as she appeared as muse for many of our favorite brands out there, showing off their footwear collections. She’s been in New York for the past five years, but this Brazilian born babe has captured the attention of many a retailer and fashion house, including Urban Outfitters, who has written out an interesting expose about the model and rather talented shoemaker, who appeared on the Take it Slow lookbook. Seeing as how quickly Mari Giudicelli moved to launch her own shoe line, we can easily imagine her love for the gorgeous pieces.

Mari Giudicelli Luxury Shoe Line

Some interesting facts? Mari Giudicelli never brushes her hair or uses conditioners but she loves washing her face as she wakes up and before going to bed. Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, beach shots seem to be her best moments in front of the camera; she seems to be born for that part of the world and perfectly made for travel. Plus, she apparently sees shapes and colors more than images with definition, which can easily lend to her more artistic side, which in turn has helped aid her in creating the loveliest of shoe collections.

Mari has modeled for Mansur Gavriel and Eckhaus Latta, among many others. She has played muse to designers such as Simon Porte Jacquemus, and has become the face for Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s boutique collections. She is a photographer with an aptitude for e-commerce and a good head on her shoulders, having graduated from the New York Fashion Institute of Technology, among the top 10 fashion schools from around the world, just last May.

She has decided to greet the New Year with the start of her own eponymous luxury shoe line, a dream come true for the student who stuck to the footwear classes and pretty much lived in the shoe lab. “I was making everything by hand. I just loved manipulating leather, even the smell of it was exciting to me.”

Living in Brooklyn, she has been working on her prototypes, with four shapes more or less ready to become available in the spring; this includes an ankle boot, a loafer, and apparently a mule with a high vamp and a low, block heel. If you are wondering about the materials used, apparently we can expect glossy lizard or suede, the pieces lined with rabbit or calf. Rabbit is what we are cheering for here though as that is one fur that is just the perfect softness against our skins.

The news about Mari Giudicelli’s shoe line was announced but a week ago on Instagram and it has become official now. We can add another lovely designer and artist to our list of favorites soon enough it appears as Mari Giudicelli begins to carve out her own shoe empire in this rather competitive field. “I wanted to create styles that could carry you through the day, that would be elegant, but also comfortable, and also something that’s not extremely trendy. You can wear it with a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, or you can wear it with a pretty dress,” she told Vogue. Now we just need to get our hands on them!

Banana Republic’s NYFW Collection To Go On Sale Instantly

Fashion

Banana Republic will be releasing six pieces for sale from their next NYFW collection on Feb. 13, the moment the event begins. The brand debuted at Fashion Week in fall 2015, and is now taking steps to integrate itself into the ever-changing industry.

Banana Republic's NYFW Collection To Go On Sale Instantly

Despite the impending reevaluation of New York Fashion Week by the CFDA, many brands have made their own plans to capitalize on the success of their fall 2016 shows in February. It seems the talk of change has sparked some innovation among designers, such as Rebecca Minkoff’s new format strategy, of a “fully immersive fashion show,” which promises to ensnare all who are involved.

And of course there’s Banana Republic, which is relatively new to Fashion Week, that plans to create a real-time shopping experience for the coming season. The brand’s collection will walk beginning on Feb. 13 at 3:30 p.m. ET, which is the same time the six pieces are set to become available on Banana Republic’s website. According to a brand representative, prices are expected to be within the standard price range for the brand, but the final details are still being worked out.

The idea of real-time shopping isn’t new to Fashion Week, as Burberry was the first brand to use a similar tactic for fall 2010, when the apparel was available directly after the line walked the runway. Another constraint to this past attempt was the six to eight week waiting period customers had before their orders could be fulfilled.

Since then, however, other brands like Jeremy Scott for Moschino (beginning in fall 2014), Anthony Vaccarello for Versus Versace (spring and fall 2015), House of Holland, and BCBG have used some form of the instant collection concept, but it’s more uncommon for retailers of the same price range or size of Banana Republic to make such a move. So, Banana Republic’s runway promise is totally exciting, but not without precedent.

H&M’s collaborations with different designers, like the most recent and successful with Balmain, have created a great deal of revenue with their campaigning, and Kohl’s featured Lauren Conrad’s brand on the heightened stage of New York Fashion Week, complete with a livestream shopping experience. The presentations for each brand, however, were only a small part of a larger corporation. Banana Republic, on the other hand, now uses its runway shows to showcase the apparel offered for the entire season to come.

Banana Republic has Marissa Webb to thank for where they are now in the media. Webb prodded the brand to become part of the Fashion Week calendar, with the goal of giving the brand a “cool factor,” a much-needed amplifier to bring in a wider customer base for the classic brand. This newfound coverage at Fashion Week has the brand expecting immediate sales following the runway, which also shows that executives at the company are confident their real-time shopping experience will be a hit.

This could prove to be a groundbreaking venture for retailers on the Fashion Week roster. If all goes well this season, we’ll no doubt see others taking up similar approaches.

Orla Kiely Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Fashion

Contrasts, floral patterns and feminine cuts: here we are again with Irish Fashion designer Orla Kiely, who has just presented her pre-fall 2016 collection and whose overall vibes channel some Seventies-inflected vibes that will make anyone fall in love with this collection. Mainly known for her retro prints and unique designs, London-based (but Irish at heart) Kiely chose to intertwine her all-round abilities as an artist (she is crowned as the Print Queen) with more joyful and fresh designs, even adding a touch of a feminine light pink hue to complete the Orla Kiely pre-fall 2016 collection.

Orla Kiely Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Those who are particularly fond of Kiely’s collections will surely notice the lookbook’s backdrop: carefully in line with the overall contrasting theme, Orla Kiely showcases her abilities as an illustrator designing floral-patterned wallpapers as well, which also function as a friendly reminder that she indeed loves prints (and won’t probably ever stop using them in her creations). Her renowned illustrations have been so far used on almost any kind of objects, from furniture to kitchenware to wallpapers, and even cars. Her approach to prints recalls that of her looks: it’s modern, clean and somehow brings back warm nostalgic feelings. Moreover, to make everything reach her iconic modern and architectural approach, she often repeats patterns and constructions, creating a coherent continuum of pieces that complete one another.

Her pre-fall 2016 collection perfectly recalls this unique style of hers, as it clearly focuses on prints and structured cuts. The line-up serves us well-tailored and refined pieces, in which the floral patterns create cheerful color-blocking motifs with all the black, dark green and blue navy fabrics. The collection mainly focuses on the dresses, giving however enough room to explore some utterly cute long-sleeved jumpsuits in silk, full skirts, blouses, pleat-bibbed shirts and sweaters, as well as cropped Chinese knits and double-breasted coats, pieces that sound like the best options for any transitional season. To enhance the floral prints, Kiely had fun alternating them with solid-colored patterns, which help make the line-up even more dynamic and cheerful, if possible.

The collection also features some high-waisted tailored shorts and a juvenile long-sleeved shirt with a single big flower on the front that could serve as the perfect ‘back to school’ outfit. The entire collection radiates distinctive cool ‘school girl’ vibes, as it combines the socks with shoes trend with A-line dresses and sweaters over collared shirts, totally nailing the art of layering.

Focusing mainly on the waist, Orla Kiely still manages to skillfully accentuate the silhouette, too, playing with a clear sensual style throughout the entire collection. And it is that naïve sensuality of Kiely’s, who also chose to give her pre-fall 2016 collection her own vision of the ‘sheer fabric’ trend, adding a sultry lace pattern to an embroidered black midi dress.
