JKC: TIL DEATH DO US PART

Most of you would probably recognize Jessica Kagan Cushman’s Nantucket bangles or canvas totes which sport witty sayings such as “Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner” and “My Other Bag is a Chanel”. Her style of accessories allow the wearer to express themselves with bright colors, sarcasm and a whole lot of flare. When I met Jessica at Premiere Classe in Paris this summer I immediately fell in love with these skull rings covered in diamonds and told her I would literally wear it as my wedding band (someday very far from now). Skulls have a very fine line between tacky and trendy but I really think this style is simple enough to make a statement with out looking like Bret Michaels. Plus, what is a more literal way to say “til death do us part” than rocking a skull on that wedding finger.

ALL THAT GLITTERS IS [NOT] GOLD

With the holiday season quickly approaching I have all I can do to not explode sequins. It seems as though every year each retailer adds more and more sparkle to their assortment, creating a winter wonderland that has girls shinning like a walking disco ball. I am feeling more into shimmer this holiday rather than sequins and raw metallic. There is something so magical about shimmer’s subtle iridescence as it glistens in the dusk of night.

GAUTLIER ESPADRILLE SNEAKERS

These are SICK. Gautlier only put one pair of these cut-out sneaker + espadrille hybrids on the runway so I doubt they will make it to the stores, unfortunately! Enjoy for your eyes and let’s all hope to see them at retail next season!

NYFW TOP SHOWS: ALTUZARRA

In AMSTERDAM for just two days to cover retail here and haven’t had NEARLY enough time to dive into NYFW the way I want to. However, I think the ALTUZARRA show was really powerful with its utilitarian femininity and sleek minimalism. Absolutely love the contrast of these body belts to the uber strappy and lady-like sandals. There has been so much white its insane, I truly think the key colors for SS12 footwear will be white, red and metallic silver… let’s see if the remainder of the shows follow suit. Tomorrow off the London… ciao for now!

Which also reminds me…I need to buy a kiln…

SUPER Sunglasses Autumn 2011

The Panama silhouette set the standard for the new Super Autumn 2011 collection. The colors below span the entire season.

The America frame is created to invoke a particular Americana: jukeboxes, Cadillac and Johnny Cash, seen through the lens of a 90’s Wrigley’s commercial.

The Paloma silhouette comes with a round shape, still rare to the SUPER collection.

More to come…
