Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2011 Collection Already Appeared On 17 Magazine Covers

Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2011 Collection Already Appeared On 17 Magazine Covers

We are only 21 days into the Spring/Summer 2011 season, but magazine editors don't waist any time when it comes to putting Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2011 collection on the cover. While Gucci's color-blocking and Prada's baroque monkeys may provide that ever elusive show-stopping cover, the vote is in - natural, white and clean is king for spring.

Clearly a favorite, the same version of a white Broderie Anglaise dress keeps appearing on the covers. In fact, Gisele Bundchen is wearing one on Emmanuelle Alt's first Vogue Paris cover for April 2011 issue. That same dress is also worn by Britt Maren on Germany's Vogue cover for the same month. It is that exact dress that already appeared on Elle Russia ...

10 Woven Bags For A Relaxed Look This Summer

10 Woven Bags For A Relaxed Look This Summer

When we think of woven bags, a free-spirited summer comes to mind. And this summer, the designers stepped it up and created some very luxurious and original takes on the trend. The beauty of a well designed woven bag is that you can either match it to a Bohemian day look or dress it up for an effortless summer-y evening look.

On the highest end you have, of course, the classic Bettoga Veneta Intrecciato, but it no longer has to be the classic basket weave. Diane Von Furstenberg offers a woven chain-link leather hobo bag that has a very interesting texture and feel to it and Stella McCartney produced her classic Falabella tote out of chunky woven cotton-blend fabric.

We'll begin with ...

Asos Spring 2011 Brings Us 70s Inspired Solaris Collection

Asos Spring 2011 Brings Us 70s Inspired Solaris Collection

Asos, the European fashion online retailer that recently launched a US website, created a 70s inspired collection - Solaris - for Spring 2011. Just like a department store, Asos sells their own label collections alongside designer brands and unlike a department store, they offer free shipment and returns.

Solaris offers everything we like about the 70s - flowing maxi skirts, pleats, platform wedges and chunky jewelry. All in the earthy 70s color-palette of cream, beige, navy and mustard; all in the price range of $30 to $200.

H&M Conscious Collection: Top Ten Items Worth Your Money

H&M Conscious Collection: Top Ten Items Worth Your Money

H&M Conscious Collection hits the stores in what seems right now like a long time - April 14th, but the hype already begins to build up. White shades and minimalistic silhouettes, so on point with both the current New York Spring 2011 trend and the sustainability and organics trend. All at the price range of $10 to $60 - what's not to like?

With such strong emphasis on romantic lace and Broderie Anglaise, not all pieces are as stylish as one would hope them to be. Some cross the barrier of coolness into the Little-House-On-The-Prairie territory. But others, like the clean and crisp looking blazers at $50 a piece, are just waiting for you to grab them off the rack. ...

Roger Vivier’s Bruno Frisoni Designs New Limited-Edition ‘Rendez-Vous’ Accessories

Roger Vivier’s Bruno Frisoni Designs New Limited-Edition ‘Rendez-Vous’ Accessories

It was last year when Roger Vivier artistic director Bruno Frisoni decided to stop the label's couture line. "When I showed couture in January, I was thinking it was something that wasn’t me anymore. I thought the time had passed," he said at the time.

Bruno Frisoni maybe doesn't produce couture looks for Roger Vivier anymore, but he hasn't stopped creating. A new Roger Vivier limited-edition accessories line titled Rendez-Vous was born. Consisting of luxurious handmade shoes and clutches, Rendez-Vous items are produced in quantities of 10-20 of each. We are essentially talking about haute couture accessories here.

Meeting with Telegraph's Hilary Alexander, Frisoni explained that the new Rendez-Vous collection is about "Marlene Dietrich-meets-punk" - a sort of hard-edge sophistication.

Rendez-Vous will ...

Going Greek With Versace Spring 2011 Accessories

Going Greek With Versace Spring 2011 Accessories

The Versace Spring 2011 was a roaring success. Rigorous body conscious dresses and pencil high-waisted skirts combined with cropped jackets showing just enough midriff to make it sensual, not vulgar. Cutout details, draped fringe and the Greek key pattern were integrated so well into the pieces that they didn't loose their minimalist feel. Clean use of bright colors - red, yellow and turquoise - contributed to that effect as well.

The Greek key was also used on belts, handbags and even sandals, in contrasting color, the pattern turned each and every one of those into a statement piece.

The campaign advertising Versace Spring 2011 accessories features a nude January Jones with nothing but the shoes and bags on her. Available in ...

Lanvin Spring 2011 Insect Jewelry Is Buzz-Worthy

Lanvin Spring 2011 Insect Jewelry Is Buzz-Worthy

Lanvin Spring 2011 collection was a celebration of femininity and old-world elegance with flowing, masterfully draped dresses, accentuated with chunky insect jewelry which gave it an instant vintage vibe.

The collection featured insect jewelry, done with a modern edge, in every shape and form. Butterflies, moths and flies found themselves on bracelets - metal or leather cuffs, on necklaces - chokers, satin tie or body harnesses, and on little brooches, so longing for a jacket lapel.

Lanvin Spring 2011 jewelry and other accessories is now available on LuisaViaRoma.com. (10% Promo Code FR10CJBA01)

Lanvin For H&M: 5 Cheapest Items Worth The Trouble

Lanvin For H&M: 5 Cheapest Items Worth The Trouble

Lanvin For H&M collection will be available to the public next Tuesday - on November 23. With some items costing as much as $349, the Lanvin For H&M collection has to be the most expensive H&M collection to date. Of course I would ideally suggest you buy this amazing $199 one-shoulder dress or this $199 coat, but not everyone wants to spend that kind of money on what's essentially a hyped-up, slightly upgraded H&M item.

If you want a Lanvin For H&M item, but don't want to spend too much money on it - these five items are your best bet.

Focus: Lanvin For H&M Accessories and Shoes

While most of the clothes in the collection look luxurious and expensive (Alex Perry reference for the Aussies) the jewelry simply can't keep up. I suppose attempting to recreate Lanvin's jewelry in plastic and ribbon was too much of a stretch.

But I sure as hell will be fighting for those sunglasses!

And yes, it seems to be a Lanvin For H&M day today.
