All Pieces from the Jenners’ Kendall + Kylie Spring 2016 Collection

Fashion

The most talked about gals will be launching their debut contemporary collection –Kendall + Kylie – at luxury retailers for spring of 2016. Kendall and Kylie Jenner, the ladies that are still in their young adult stages, barely out of their teens, but the top models in the world at the moment, have been soaring through the world of fashion at incredible speeds, breaking record after record with their fame. The gorgeous sisters, half-siblings to the infamous Kardashians with their scandals and entertaining reality show, have really been developing into pretty interesting businesswomen, of late having been hard at work on their eponymous brand that is contemporary, global and focused on lifestyle.

Kendall + Kylie Spring 2016 Collection

The Kendall + Kylie Jenner spring 2016 collection is expected to be unveiled during the month of February, just a few days before the start of New York Fashion Week, at a private party. We have been waiting for this presentation a while now, since we first heard about the existence of such work, and have been overly curious about the ready-to-wear pieces, as well as the impressive range of footwear, manufactured by Marc Fisher Footwear. from $68-$298, the leather pieces topping at $498, and the shoes available from between $100 and $200 USD.

What can you expect to find among the line-up? The sisters actually have rather different styles, with Kylie more into the leather dresses, the crop tops, the body contour skirts and dresses, as well as the lace-up sweatshirts; Kendall is more of the demure pink maxi skirt girl, who rather prefers lacy white pieces and classic designs. It does not matter which sister’s style is more you, you will find it both in the Kendall + Kylie spring 2016 collection. Plus, since the business-savvy girls had been checking out the market and screening what the ladies in New York prefer, the line-up is meant to suit most tastes, no matter which way you lean. We can imagine how proud their sisters and brother-in-law Kanye West is with their achievements. It appears that Instagram and Snapchat are going to be bursting with images of the new K+K looks.

Expect to find 80 different pieces in the collection, from lace-up tunic dresses to open décolletage, tall lady pieces, maxi hems on pretty and charming classic looks, crop tops and pale skirts, denim and sweaters, jumpsuits and overalls, twin sets and halter tops, embroidered designs and plain bright colors, leather dresses and wraparound coats, gorgeous stiletto heels and high wedge platforms. We find suede and leather, tassels and ankle straps, espadrilles and lace up gladiator stilettos, along with open toe mules, pretty sandals and ballerina flats. There is a whole range of beautiful pieces to choose from, but we can see ourselves shopping from the full-to-the-brim shoe aisle most.

Just Cavalli Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Fashion

Have you been longing for some high fashion with a touch of daring youth? You don’t need to think too much, it’s Just Cavalli. We hope you liked their resort collection unveiled not too long ago, because it is nothing like the new Just Cavalli pre-fall 2016 collectionwe’re about to discuss. For the pre-fall lookbook Cavalli has captured all the dark essence of the fall with the help of bold, vibrant colors paired with the dark side of the color palette.

Just Cavalli Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

When Cavalli is dark, it’s really dark! It’s not the boring pitch black you might imagine, it’s all encompassing black that draws you in like a galaxy. It’s the oily black print dress, where the print looks like reflections in a dark lake. To keep this short, we hope you understand our point; the new Just Cavalli pre-fall 2016 line isreally dark.

When it comes to styling, some of the outfits seem like interesting combinations. There are a few dresses and separates that could look glammed up if styled with high heels and a slick updo, but you expected that, didn’t you? And that’s exactly why it’s not happening. Some of the styling reminds of gothic punk, i.e. the all black eye makeup, messy hairstyle and a don’t-care pose that looks everything near to seductive.

The lookbook features 35 looks, all different, ranging from everyday outfits to glamorous dresses that you wear to a party with invites. There are also some eccentric pieces like the hot pink ankle boots with glitter paired with baggy leather pants and a flowy red and black shirt. If you are ready to go a mile more eccentric, try to handle the big fur coat of the same hot pink color, some outfits just look better when you’re hungover.

Other highlights include super long scarves (10 points to Gryffindor!), sometimes styled with an elegant dress and sometimes the usual leather jacket. A common theme seems to be the small prints you find on the bottoms – skirts and shorts – as well as on some of the shirts and the dresses. We are seeing many irregular stripes running in different directions, and we love them all!

The color palette is dark, but not monochrome. Cavalli has used a number of colors, so many you might find it hard to believe they’re all in one pre-fall collection. One thing is common in all of them though; all the colors are very deep and heavy, radiating warmth and the nature’s shades you enjoy just as fall starts to take over.

The only drawback we could point out is the meat on the model… meaning, there is absolutely none. Those designs are astounding and they would look just as gorgeous on a fuller model. A super-skinny woman is no longer a trend, so we would love to see Cavalli join the list of weight-conscious brands. Especially when some of the dresses do have curves, so why not put them on a curvy figure and encourage healthy lifestyle in the modelling industry?

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN’S PALOMA TOTE

Other Brands

We recently brought you a sneak peek of what you can expect from Christian Louboutin in Spring 2016, and thankfully, some of these spring accessories have started to trickle into stores. Louboutin has a lot to offer this upcoming season, and I wanted to take a closer look at the Paloma Tote, which is the brand’s biggest Spring 2016 handbag debut.

The Paloma Tote is both bold and sophisticated, and the black calfskin version has a contrasting nude top handle and Louboutin’s red sole emblem, as well as a red interior peeking out. At first glance, it feels a bit bare for a Louboutin bag (remember the Lucky L Hobo?), but the gussets provide a hidden pop of Louboutin, with leopard-print patent leather, spike detailing and, of course, a bit of red.

The bag also comes with a removable shoulder strap, which is important because the tote can feel a bit heavy when carried by the top handles. Since the bag is quite large, I initially didn’t think the shoulder strap would be functional or comfortable, as is often the issue with large, structured bags. Surprisingly, this adjustable strap proved me wrong; it fell at just the right spot on my body and the top handles weren’t in my way. The combination of structure and versatility makes it an excellent work bag.

I quickly fell in love with the unique structure of the bag, but it was the interior that really made me swoon. I love bags that help me stay organized and the red suede portfolio-style interior is hard to resist. Also, not everyone will agree with me, but I personally love a bag that doesn’t have a top closure. I like to have things at easy access without having to fumble with closures, clasps and buttons. The two zipper compartments are enough to keep my valuables hidden while still having other things in my handbag easily accessible, which is always a plus when I’m using a bag for work. But don’t fret, there’s still a concealed pull-out strap if you’re not completely comfortable having everything out in the open.

Louboutin sent us a sample that I got to use for a couple of days, and I have to say it’s way more functional than it looks. Everything from my daily essentials to my 13-inch Macbook for work (I wasn’t kidding when I said this was huge!) fit comfortably. If that’s not enough to convince you of the design’s worthiness, I also received a bunch of compliments while carrying the bag and everyone was dying to know the designer–always a perk in my book!

Also, if you’re wondering about the shoes in our photos, they’re the Christian Louboutin So Baker Sandals and they are even more awesome in person!

The Paloma comes in a variety of colors, patterns and sizes and can shop all these different options at Christian Louboutin. You can also shop this exact version at Neiman Marcus for $2,490.

Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2016 Ad Campaign

Fashion

The revolutionizer has unveiled his new ad campaign! Yes, it’s the Tom Fordspring/summer 2016 campaign we’re talking about (who else would lead the fashion revolution?). In his endless search for new ways and events to sell a collection, he has managed to become a media favorite. We are genuinely interested in every step Ford takes, because we are sure it’s going to be a new experiment in the fashion industry.

Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2016 Ad Campaign

And we are never wrong! Just when all other designers and brands are putting their resources in new ad campaigns, Tom Ford has decided to make the lazy shortcut. When the news broke that Tom Ford’s campaign is about to be launched on his website, we thought something big is coming (some of us even checked the weather for any upcoming storms). Tom Ford is still pushing the game of efficiency, giving us nothing more than shots from his Lady Gaga video. Yes, you heard it right! The images for Tom Ford’s spring 2016 campaign are from the video created in collaboration with Lady Gaga last October.

These images, however, don’t feature our art pop queen. Instead they show all the best angles of hot models like Lucky Blue Smith, Mica Arganaraz, and Lida Fox, and others. All looking styled from head to toe, having fun, posing like the coolest faces you will meet in an NYC club. Besides keeping platinum blonde and pastel colors in trend, Ford’s new campaign sends us incredible party vibes just before the weekend.

We are in tune with the energy of the campaign, but the master plan behind it is still slightly vague for us. Whether Ford saved on a new concept and execution or this is another statement move from him, we were expecting something more than the images from the video. Despite this slight disappointment that we are ready to forget because of the awesome collection, the campaign is very impressive. By the way, in case you missed, the video was shot by Nick Knight in Los Angeles.

We are expecting an international release with top fashion publications like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and Vanity Fair in March. We think the main theme will be kept in spring – models wearing Ford and having fun on a runway-club. It’s not about the cold display you see during fashion shows, this campaign is all about character.

Losing control, having fun, and keeping it classy at the same time. Ford’s non-standard ideas and initiatives are a perfect way of expressing the fun-loving and crazy heroes of his new campaign.

Finally, the campaign has already been launched on the designer’s official website. Will this lazy shortcut work? Is it the new way of presenting collections and creating a hype? Go check out Ford’s new experiment, if you crave more details, and let us know what you think!

PURSEFORUM ROUNDUP – JANUARY 22

Other Brands

It’s Friday again, friends. Thank you for joining us for another edition of the PurseForum Roundup. This week, we visit Louis Vuitton, the Jewelry Box, Bottega Veneta and more. Get comfortable and come along!

Louis-Vuitton-Bag-Charm

January rang in the New Year and also the January Purchases Thread in Louis Vuitton. There are plenty of great new additions to our members’ collections, and we hope you will make a point to see what has been popping up in this fast-moving thread. This thread certainly boasts something for everyone, like this terrific bag charm from canyongirl. While you are in our Louis Vuitton subforum, be sure to check into the New 2016 Bags thread for updates; we saw a few thing that are interesting and a few that are, well…let us know what you think!

Louis-Vuitton-Collection

This thread is so cute. “Who is in Your Passenger Seat” invited Louis Vuitton lovers to share their driving companions. You just may find inspiration in this thread, whether it is for a new bag purchase or perhaps even something with wheels! Bellabean12’s collection was quite an eyeful; be sure to stop by this thread for more.

Bottega-Veneta-Mini-Crossbody-Bag

The below-the-radar, understated elegance of the Bottega Veneta intrecciato cannot be overstated. This house has consistently put out spectacular bags, and we absolutely love to find new BV acquisitions revealed on the PurseForum. This ice-blue beauty belongs to LoveHeart, who did a wonderful job of capturing this sweet little bag for us.

Also be sure to catch bmk33s fabulous metallic espadrilles, which are perfect for most every season. (Unless you have to slog around in snow, of course.) There is plenty going on in our BV subforum this month and we hope to see you there.

Zara-Booties

Honestly, we never know what we will find on the front page the Wardrobe. This week, we logged quite a few minutes in the Totally Worth It–Totally Not Worth It thread. Our members are quite opinionated when it comes to shopping, and they are wise indeed when it comes to value. Spend some time in this thread and we are sure you will agree.

Also in the Wardrobe this week, we found these adorable booties in the incredibly popularWho Else Loves Zara thread. Mrstap snapped these up and earned a tip of the hat from appreciative Zara fans.

Valentino-Rockstud-Pumps

Last week, we shared a bit of trouble with a pair of Valentinos. This week, we found another pair with a scratch in the Help!! My RS heels got ruined thread and enjoyed reading our members’ opinions on patent versus leather, with the occasional reveal tossed in for good measure. We found these pretty yellow Rockstuds from meowmix318, and we have a feeling that if you love dogs (or shoes), you will enjoy this thread!

There are plenty of other conversations about the brand’s super-popular footwear in the new Valentino Shoes subforum, so don’t be shy–you don’t have to own a pair to enjoy spending time there and soaking up some info.

Tiffany-Boxes

MsKaren took the Show your Tiffany & Co. Collection seriously and was kind enough to share many of her lovely pieces, but this box shot really stole the show and we could not resist sharing. We have a subforum dedicated to the powerhouse brand that has been making our lives more stylish since 1837. We also have a fascinating thread for afficionados, who find their love for Tiffany & Co. has a slightly more imperative quality–the Tiffanys Jewelry Addictionthread is where they gather to discuss their favorite passion.

Thank you so much for joining us again. We will be back next Friday with more, and in the meantime, we hope you have a wonderful week ahead. Remember, awards season is upon us, and you can visit Television and Cinema and the Celebrity Subforums to catch up on all the latest entertainment news. We can almost sense the days getting longer, and we wish you all a gentle remaining winter.
