SEASON'S TRENDS: VELVET TOUCH

Designers embraced velvet this season! The sumptuous fabric was definitely a hit on the catwalks, both in traditional colors (black or burgundy) as well as some memorable new tones. We encourage you to opt for a canary yellow outfit as seen at Creatures of Comfort, a bold basic blue suit like Altuzarra’s, or a colored print dress Erdem style. A special mention for the gorgeous Monse jumpsuit: the perfect twisted tailoring makes one of the best use of velvet this season. Don't forget the accessories: a red velvet pair of boots or a velvet bag will make you stand out. See our selection of velvet items available in stores right now and let us help you style them!

SEASON’S TRENDS: CHOCOLATE BROWN

This season, designers want to see us dipped in chocolate. Don’t worry, it won’t affect the silhouette! On the contrary, this rich color will only make us look sweet. You can go for a total look (as seen at Tod’s, Jil Sander or Emilio Pucci) or combine a chocolate skirt or a pair of trousers with a clean white top (as seen at The Row). A brown coat is also a must! You have plenty of choices, from long wrap-ups or loose overcoats to tailored blazer-like coats. Either way, you can’t go wrong, because brown seems to be the new black this fall. If you need help styling these gorgeous pieces, let us help you. Download Chicly App from the...

The Most Spectacular Shows in Paris

Paris Fashion Week started à la grande with two super-spectacular shows: Dior and Saint Laurent. For Dior, that translated into some impressive numbers: 80,000 pieces of mirror, 7.2 tons of coated concrete, 20 days of labor-intensive installation, and a workforce of 80 people! The extraordinary show space was built in the gardens of the Musée Rodin and was inspired by a fourteen-acre sculpture park built by artist Niki de Saint Phalle. Maria Grazia Chiuri's collection for Dior featured 80 pieces meant to celebrate inspirational women in the arts and get the fashion focusing on feminism. Models showed up on the catwalk wearing ’70s patchwork jeans, leather jumpsuits, black pantsuits, sparkly glitter mini dresses, mod boots, and Mary Jane shoes. Few...

Ralph Lauren Show-Off Show

Now that NY Fashion Week is over, we can state this: the most extravagant show of the season was Ralph Lauren. Not only did the acclaimed designer decide to host the event in his private garage (displaying 26 of the rarest cars in the world) in Bedford Hills, 40 miles outside New York, but he ferried more than 250 top-class guests to the location in approximately 150 Mercedes S-class cars. Wow! But that’s not all, oh no, that’s not all. The entire event culminated with a dinner of lobster salad and burgers from Ralph's signature restaurant in New York, the Polo Bar. In this way, the designer revealed the inspiration for his new collection: a few cars lined up on...
