BCBG kept with the trend of color blocking as last season. The clothes were light, colorful and cheerful. The color palette was the rainbow. The hemlines ranged from full length to accenting. The hair was loose and wavy and makeup natural.
Missoni for Target had an event last night in New York for their upcoming launch and a number of Celebs came out to celebrate. Including designer Rachel Roy, model Selita and basketball player Amar'e. Some of them rocked the new line to the event and others should have looked in the mirror before leaving the house. The collection will hit stores this Sunday and I am sure it will be gone right away.
Rihanna was recently named the new spokeswoman for Armani Jeans and Underwear. Here is her new ad for the 2012 Fall Armani Jean campaign. I love the short crop haircut she is rocking and the ad modern feel on a classic film.

TOM and The Row have joined forces to collaborate on a limited collection of shoes. The line will consist of eight pairs of cashmere and Italian wool shoes that will retail for $98 to $150 each that will each have their own name such as Oliver, Kyle and so on. The shoes are still true to the company model of One for One, they just have a more luxury feel to them. Are you a TOM's fan? How do you feel about the new line?

Color denim is a look that has been on and off the fashion radar for awhile. But bright denim has made a big comeback this season. If you are not ready to jump into the trend full force then ease into with wearing shade that you are comfortable with like green, blue, or purple. You should consider your body shape when wearing colored denim. Bright colors draw attention to your lower half. So if you are not comfortable with that try a boot cut or flare leg fit to help balance you out. A great way to keep this look on the mature side is to pair it with toned down neutrals. You can also make this look edgy and trendy by using a graphic tee and adding a belt or two. Or make it girly with a floral tunic, heels and denim vest. Some of me favorite designers are J Brand and Current/Elliott. So will you be trying out this look? Let me know what you think.

The men's spring 2012 Burberry collection is all about ease. There is crocheting, stitching, embroidery and handblock prints. This spring collection has an ethic feel to it with the geometric shapes around the neckline being suggestive of Native American dress. Block prints gave a textured to tops and sweaters. There were circular patterns on tee shirts to suggest ancient art. Burberry also showed love to Scotland with most of the outfits being topped with a hand crocheted raffia golfing hat topped with a pom pom. The models wore cork soled moccasins and loafers. The color palate was very earthy garnet, indigo and beet.
H&M has done it again. They have scored another luxury brand to design an collection for the Swedish based company. H&M will launch a collection designed by Donatella Versace on November 19 which will be just in time for the holidays. The collection will include 40 pieces for women and 20 pieces for men. I can not wait to see some of the luxe materials and bright colored suits she has in store for us. Will you be camping out in the line with me again this year when it arrives?

If there is one word to describe this new collection it is "NET" the models are wearing it from the t-shirts, trousers, shorts, bomber jackets, sweaters and tracksuits. The color is all about the neutrals with the collection being in a series of grays, coffee brown, olive green, white and black. Dolce&Gabbana is definitely for a certain type of man. But I personally love all of their stuff and their suits are like no other. How do you feel about all the mesh?
