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.

New Online Sunglasses Store: Solstice Sunglasses

New Online Sunglasses Store: Solstice Sunglasses

There's a new competitor for Sunglass Hut on the cyber block - Solstice Sunglasses. And they even offer free shipping and returns.

Solstice Sunglasses is a sunglasses retailer for Safilo Group which is a major sunglasses licensee (Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs, you name it). So a lot of the sunglasses they are offering are of course Safilo's brands, but they also include classics like Ray-Bans. Can you even have a sunglasses store today without offering Ray-Bans?

The new sunglasses online store offers pretty much the same shopping experience as Sunglass Hut - filtering sunglasses by brand, gender, shape, price and prescription, but carries brands that I'd say are a bit on the pricey side.

The website's look-and-feel, by the ...

Swarovski Expands Into Eyewear – Launches Sunglasses Line

Swarovski Expands Into Eyewear – Launches Sunglasses Line

The crystal business is clearly going good, because Swarovski decided to branch out into two more categories - eyewear and men's jewelry.

Swarovski teamed up with Marcolin (who also produces eyewear for Tom Ford, Roberto Cavalli and Dsquared) as their licensee to create a 12 piece sunglasses collection that will be out later this January.

The Swarovski sunglasses line surprisingly (for the better) won't be overloaded with crystal embellishments but rather inspired by the crystal shape and form as a whole.

Some will take on the aviator style, some will channel Jackie O, others will have 70's inspired oversize square frames, but all will have at least a little bit of Swarovski crystals on them. The collection will retail in Swarovski stores, department ...

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.

Lucy In The Sky: Fannie Schiavoni Spring 2011 Metal Accessories

Lucy In The Sky: Fannie Schiavoni Spring 2011 Metal Accessories

Fannie Schiavoni broke into the London fashion scene less than two years ago but her metal accessories are already all the rage. I say metal accessories because you can't quite call these jewelry. Fannie Schiavoni's pieces are more than that. Bigger. Each one is transforming you into a woman warrior without the comic-con connotation. We're talking strictly high-fashion here.

Fannie Schiavoni's background in tailoring and working experience with Hussein Chalayan, Giles Deacon and Julien Macdonald has won her a NEWGEN sponsorship from the British Fashion Council and her pieces were already adorned by the likes of Rihanna (Rockstar 101), The Scissor Sisters and Lady Gaga.

Araisara Spring 2011 Show Kicked Off Japan Fashion Week Today

Araisara Spring 2011 Show Kicked Off Japan Fashion Week Today

Japan Fashion Week Spring 2011 runway schedule began today with araisara as the opening show.

According to WWD, this season Japan Fashion Week officials decided to put emphasis on the buyers and not the media. They decided to use their, tight as it is, budget to fly in buyers and not international fashion journalists. The plan might hurt Japan Fashion Week's international coverage initially but will probably pay off in the long run, as buyers are the ones making the important decisions.

The schedule have just began, but I already have a coveted accessory! Araisara sent an eclectic ready-to-wear collection down the runway. Especially standing out is the oversize buckle belt. How amazing is that?

Le Blob – Handmade Jewelry by Fernando Akasaka

Le Blob – Handmade Jewelry by Fernando Akasaka

I've stumbled upon quite an interesting jewelry collection. It has that morbid rock-n-roll Pamela Love quality.

The jewelry collection, dubbed Le Blob, is handmade by the jewelry designer Fernando Akasaka (who is also a gifted furniture designer by the way). It's all made of made of solid .950 sterling silver or .750 gold (18k) and retails in stores like Eva in New York and Blackbird in Seattle.

Visit the Le Blob website for more retail locations and check out Fernando Akasaka's website to see more of his work.

Besides sending ultra modern and feminine clothes down the runway a few days ago, Alber Elbaz styled the models with chunky insect jewelry giving all his looks that ever-so-desired 70's feel.

Nicolas Ghesquière debuted quite an amazing timepiece on the Balenciaga runway last Thursday. Looking like a leather strap bracelet, the watch comes in three leathers -python, crocodile and lizard. It's highly limited-edition and will be retailing at $1,400 in Balenciaga stores in November.
