Kitten Keepy Ring Dish

We've got kind of a paper clip issue happening on our desk--they've sort of taken over, hiding under papers and Post-It notes or falling out of the drawer whenever we open it. And here's the thing: we don't mind the paper clips (we actually need them), we just don't want them all over the place. And if it's possible to get our paper clip situation under control and still have our desk look cute, all the better. This Kitten Keepy Ring Dish from Catbird NYC is clearly the answer to our problems.

Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham is already a Hollywood A-lister and all around 'It' girl, so she really doesn't need to do much else to convince us of how cool she is. But if you need a reason to love her more, the Girls star is producing a fashion documentary, and her cool factor just went through the roof. The film is called Three Suits, and it's about a LGBTQ-friendly tailor in Brooklyn, New York called Bindle & Keep and its customers. Bindle & Keep's owner, Daniel Friedman specializes in custom suits for clients who can't find the right fit at more traditional tailors. With Lena behind the project, we're pretty sure this documentary will be a hit with the fashion sect and beyond.

 

Lanvin 1960

You already know how much we love fashion, but birthdays are also a big deal at Fashion Club headquarters (we're deeply into cupcakes and confetti around here). Naturally, we got pretty excited when we found out Lanvin, one of our (and the entire industry's) most loved fashion houses, is celebrating 125 years this year. Started by Jeanne Lanvin in 1889 with only a three hundred franc credit, the House of Lanvin has grown into what Sally Singer of Vogue calls "the fashion world’s most wanted label." In a 1934 interview with Vogue, Jeanne herself said, "I act on impulse and believe in instinct." Alber Elbaz, the house's current creative director, shares this sentiment. "I don't like formulas," he told Vogue. "I think the purpose of fashion is to cause happiness," he added. This approach, which started with a young woman designing gowns and costumes for her little girl, has clearly worked for the House of Lanvin, and we are happy to celebrate 125 years of beautiful clothing with the luxury label.

 

Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2015

If ever a designer knew how to go out with a bang, Jean Paul Gaultier is that designer. After recently announcing his plans to stop designing a ready-to-wear collection after some thirty-plus years to focus more on his haute couture label, the designer gave his final Prêt-à-Porter presentation at the Paris Fashion Week Spring 2015 shows on Saturday. But a typical runway show this was not. Gaultier, who was the fashion industry darling from the mid-80s to the 90s with his avant garde aesthetic (think skirt-pants for men and coned corsets), presented a full-fledged beauty pageant--Miss Jean Paul Gaultier 2015 France et Outre Mer--where model Coco Rocha was ultimately "crowned" the winner. There was confetti, disco music, models in masks (hey, we told you he was avant garde), and at the end of it all, thunderous applause. It was indeed a grand finale and final farewell worthy of the great Gaultier.

Junk Gypsy Sweetheart of the Rodeo Jewelry Case

We've got quite the jewelry collection, so we're always looking for new ways to store our most favorite pieces. Naturally, this Junk Gypsy Sweetheart of the Rodeo Jewelry Case landed on our must-have list the minute we saw it--it's insanely stylish and unlike any other jewelry case we've ever owned! It's got a mirror on one side, and plenty of shelves and pegs to house our jewelry and makeup. Plus, it mounts on the wall, thus saving precious real estate on our vanity for other wares.  

Chantelle Brown-Young

The fashion industry has always struggled with diversity--many designers and editors have been called out for the lack of representation of women of color and plus-size models on runways and in magazine pages--but recently we are seeing a more diverse fashion world, and it's about time. This year alone, Deisel featured fashion blogger Jillian Mercado, sitting in her wheelchair and rocking a denim dress and fierce red lip in their Reboot campaign, and more labels are embracing transgender models. Most recently, 19-year old Chantelle Brown-Young, who has a rare skin pigmentation disease called vitaligo, has inked a deal to be the face of Desigual. We're excited about the changing landscape of the industry, and we can't wait to see more changes that will create a more diverse fashion world.

 

L'Oreal Paris campaign Zoe Saldana Jane Fonda Eva Longoria Freida Pinto Blake Lively

And speaking of diversity, L'Oreal Paris just launched a campaign for their new lipstick, Collection Pure Reds, and the ad, shot by Norma Jean Roy, features a mix of Hollywood heavy-hitters that ranges from Zoe Saldana and Blake Lively to Julianne Moore and Jane Fonda. The campaign, which also features actresses Eva Longoria, Freida Pinto, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and models Liya Kibede, Laetitia Casta, and Natasha Poly, shows all ten women dressed in white and wearing bold, red lipstick (natch). And even though they're all sporting different shades of red lips, all ten of these ladies look equally flawless. 

 

Calvin Klein dressing Sam Smith

Sam Smith is rapidly, rapidly becoming a household name thanks to his hits Stay With Me and Latch with Disclosure (the latter of which we may or may not have on repeat while we work), and when a star is rising as quickly as he is, it's only a matter of time before said star and some briliant fashion designer start collaborating. For his North American tour, which kicks off soon in New York City, Smith and his band will be sporting custom suits from Calvin Klein Collection. The bespoke suits will come in various neutral colors, and will be completed with dress shirts and suede boots.

Fringe Leather Skirt

Can we talk about this Fringe Leather Skirt from Pixie Market for a sec? We spotted it and realized that our fall wardrobe would not be complete without it. It's exactly the fun, flirty, swingy, perfect-for-all-occasions kind of statement piece that's been missing from our closet. And we're not kidding when we say it's perfect for all occasions--this baby looks as good with a graphic tee as it does with a chambray shirt, and it has just enough edge to make it ideal for parties. 

Jennifer Lawrence

The Met Gala is to fashion what the Oscars are to film--a big deal! So being asked to co-host the event is major. The 2015 Met Gala is May 4, and Mockinjay star Jennifer Lawrence has been asked to co-host the fashion festivities, along with Chinese actress Gong Li, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, Wendi Murdoch, and of course, Anna Wintour (Silas Chou, president of a Chinese textile company, will serve as the event's main host). Titled, "Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film and Fashion," the next Met Gala will focus on how Eastern culture has impacted Western fashion, and will showcase work from designers including Alexander McQueen and  Laurence Xu. Lawrence, who has strutted (and, ahem, fallen down on) the red carpet in designer labels like Dior and Jason Wu, will certainly be draped in something fabulous for the gala, and we absolutely cannot wait to see what it is.

 

Peter Copping
 English designer Peter Copping may be leaving his senior designer post at Nina Ricci for a similar role at New York-based Oscar de la Renta. De la Renta has no intention of retiring, but the 82-year old, who founded his eponymous label in 1965, is looking for a talented team to work with (he recently parted ways with Brit designer John Galliano, whom he hired in 2011 after his release from Dior). Copping, no doubt, has all the qualifications de la Renta is looking for: he studied at the Royal College of Art and Central Saint Martins in London, worked at Christian Lacroix and had a twelve-year stint at Louis Vuitton, and is responsible for transforming the Nina Ricci aesthetic from dark and sophisticated to the soft, feminine looks that have made the label so loved by fashion insiders. Neither Copping nor de la Renta have confirmed the report, but according to WWD the latter has had his eye on the Nina Ricci designer for some time. Stay tuned--we're sure an official announcement will be made soon. 

 

Olivia Palermo

We've seen lots of tastemakers and industry insiders partner with various retailers during Fashion Month, but this is a first: socialite-turned-blogger Olivia Palermo has teamed up with Pinterest to "report" from the front row. Users can follow Palermo as she pins to various boards that are inspired by her Fashion Month experience. "Runway fashion gives us inspiration for what’s new and possible when it comes to creating our own individual styles," said Palermo. "Pinning is a great way to visualize your take on runway looks. I hope Pinners from around the world can incorporate fashion trends from New York, London, and Paris into their closets this season." It's kind of brilliant actually--experiencing Fashion Month through the eyes of an industry darling--and we're excited to see what she pins.
