Stylebop Celebrates 10 Years with Missoni, Delfina Delettrez, Fausto Puglisi + More

Share Button

Maybe I should just admit I’m getting older, but it always amazes me when a website has a decade of business and success to celebrate under their Hermès buckled belts. Take Stylebop.com, who has been giving us good fashion e-tail for 10 years, and celebrates their anniversary this May.

To mark the occasion, Stylebop’s fashion director Leila Yavari teamed up with the good folks at five covetable brands — think Golden Goose, Missoni, Ostwald Helgason, Delfina Delettrez, and Fausto Puglisi — to create a Red Carpet Capsule Collection for your purchasing pleasure. The capsule is available online starting today, so cursors/fingers/keyboards at the ready, people!

Art Basel Art Overload? The Shopping Worth Stopping for in Miami

Share Button

Between Art Miami, NADA, Pulse, Design Miami… the list goes on… there’ll be a point this week when all we want is some breathing room, a cocktail, and a little retail therapy. Fortunately, part of the Art Basel festivities include designer collaborations and Miami-centric beauty. Here’s what’s worth hitting while you’re in town:

Our Lady Linda

The Gap and Visionaire are collaborating for the second time (11 years later) on a limited-edition series of 45 t-shirts. One features the lovely Linda Evangelista (the super of all supers, in my  book). The tees will be available at Gap in Miami and NYC, and at – where else – The Webster.

Piamita x The Webster

What better boutique than The Webster for Miami’s best fashion (a little less Hervé and a little more Proenza)? Coinciding with Art Basel Miami Beach, The Webster’s collaboration with loungewear brand Piamita hits the store with flamingo-laden silk separates. Perfect to wear in the day, for dinner, or to bed, this set will take you anywhere. 1220 Collins Ave., Miami Beach

NARS Loves Miami

If you’re heading to Miami from NYC, chances are you had to dig into the depths of your closet to find something less black and more … exuberant. If the thought of a shocking pink dress is too painful to bear, you might be able to work in a splash of Miami heat across the face a little better. Cue: NARS Loves Miami, a collection of the best-selling colors from the beach in one very convenient box-set. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour.

SUNO’s Capsule Collection at The Webster

The Webster will be the only place to find this SUNO capsule collection – eight tropical-fresh pieces full of bright colors and prints (flamingo-mascot-inclusive). The Webster’ll host a party to kick off the capsule.  Available from December 5.

Colette Art Drive-Thru at Alchemist

For a completely different shopping experience, roll on over to Herzog & Meuron’s parking structure (5th floor). Place your order and let girls on roller skates deliver your selections right to the car window – think André “Art Smoke” e-cigs, a Rolex by Bamford, Delfina Delettrez jewels, a Darcel beach towel, and a Moncler/Pharrell collab, among many, many other things.

Happy shopping.

Fendi x Fashioneer: The Design Miami Welcome Cocktail Party

Share Button

It’s only the second day of our partnership with Fendi, and, if these sore feet have anything to do with it, we’re already off to a festive start. Last night, the luxury fashion house’s head of accessories, Silvia Venturini Fendi, and Design Miami co-founder, Craig Robins, welcomed an elite group of design collectors, art veterans, and fashion folk to the swanky W South Beach for the Design Miami 2011 opening bash. Needless to say, there wasn’t an empty glass or idle dancing shoe in sight.

Silvia (left) was also joined by her mega-talented daughter, jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez (right), who was beaming in support of her family’s fourth year sponsoring the annual fair. Although Fendi has been a Design Miami collaborator since 2008, this was the first year that the brand co-hosted the show’s official welcome party – so naturally, they went for gold. Highlights included bottomless Skyy Vodka cocktails, self-serve antipasto stations, choice tunes, and, of course, fierce fashion.

A Peek at Delfina Delettrez on Moda Operandi

Share Button

Cult-favorite jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez is known for her outre and, at times, perverse bauble creations. Remember these orgy cufflinks? We love that she takes chances and isn’t afraid to go against convention in order to provide adventure-seeking jewelry collectors with a fresh array of out-of-the-box options. Her latest offerings are now available on beloved runway-to-closet platform, Moda Operandi—and we’re hooked.

For fall 2012, Delettrez (who is also the daughter of Silvia Venturini Fendi) salutes her home, Rome. From large statement earrings featuring ancient Roman-inspired columns with an enamel eye (above, far left) to an ancient Roman-inspired tri-tone marble mosaic centerpiece in a unique arrowhead claw setting (below, center), this range is one of the best we’ve seen yet. Shop the complete collection here.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Collectors of Cool

Share Button

Let’s face it: Valentine’s Day is really for the ladies. Whether it’s flowers, chocolates, expensive dinners, or Prada keychains, men have a plethora of foolproof girly gifts to fall back on when they’re down to the wire. As for women: not so much. Sure, we can always throw on some sexy lingerie if all else fails, but that would require us to get out of our comfy warm pajamas—and it’s too cold for that nonsense.

With that said, it’s time to get creative. Lucky for us, Opening Ceremony has just rolled out a spiffy gift guide of thoughtfully curated clothing, tech accessories, cologne, and offbeat bric-a-brac that’s sure to make the artsy dude in your life feel special. We’re partial to the Fleet Illya basketball cage, Candies skate deck iPhone case and Delfina Delettrez orgy cufflinks. See more options here.

The front row for Mr. West’s debut womenswear show is expected to include everyone from the Olsen twins, Naomi Campbell, and Beyonce, to designers Riccardi Tisci, Alexander Wang, and Olivier Theyskens.

Leather: From High To Low

Share Button

Now with Americana being one of the big trends that is on the tips of everyone’s tongue, and the quintessential animal of America being the cow (whether in making fun of our beefy population or being the one animal always seen on a country road), leather, especially leather accessories, have been garnering a bit of attention these days and are being used in new and creative ways. First you have Zana Bayne and her leather harnesses that are creeping into the high fashion world bit by bondage-y bit. image image A particular fave of mine are these calf pieces. image Sticking to the depraved vein of things we have ERRO who just became available at Opening Ceremony. ERRO, makers of fine leather goods, garters, and underwear…yes underwear. image image Now to lift us out from the dungeon to things ‘higher’ we have Michael Kors’ new “Triple Buckle” belt to wash away that icky feeling. image And just when you thought it was safe… image So whether you choose perverse or posh, both are looking good this season. But honestly who doesn’t like to get a little dirty sometimes?

On the Street at Art Basel Miami: Leopard Louboutins & Pink Murses

Share Button

Art Basel Miami has come and gone. Fast, furious, profoundly fun—from downtown to the beach, it seemed never-ending, a crazy Veuve Clicquot, Belvedere, and Marlboro-fueled fantasyland. Open bars, beautiful people, fantastic music, and miles and miles of art. You get it. As expected, the normally less-than-remarkable Miami style scene was significantly amped up this past week, and here are some of my favorite shots. Starting with these Christian Louboutin leopard booties under a Valentino dress at the Alchemist’s garage party. I love leopards. I love Valentino. I love designer garages.

image I think this guy’s name was Sam. Ferragamo flats, Chloé sunglasses, and a blindingly pink Hermès Birkin bag.

One-Stop Shopping Over Art Basel Miami

Share Button

Black Friday and Cyber Monday got you down? Me too. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are actually the most annoying things ever. But a light shines at the end of the proverbial retail tunnel. This week Art Basel Miami rolls back around, and what better or more fabulous of a locale in which to do your holiday shopping? If you are like me and would prefer to get all of your spending done quickly and efficiently, look no further than Tomas Maier in Miami’s budding Design District. The store is stocked with Maier’s eponymous label (think: the most luxurious cashmere and classically sexy swimwear), handpicked selections from Bottega Veneta (of which Maier is creative director), and a bevy of other rare offerings. Yet for Art Basel Miami, a limited installment of even more unique goodness will be available in-store.

First up, Delfina Delettrez (pictured above). This gifted Fendi-clan offspring, based in Rome, designs conceptual and surrealistic jewelry (jaws, bony hands, a Michael Jackson-esque figurine brooch). Delettrez will show select pieces from her newest collections starting December 1. Perfect, actually, for the girl who has everything (because she probably doesn’t have anything like this just yet).

Next, maybe for grandma and grandpa or mom, pick up a porcelain figurine or two from Nymphenburg. This 260-year old German brand has become renowned for their startlingly lifelike animal sculptures. Very expensive, but so worth it.

Finally, scope out Lisa Eisner in the upstairs gallery. Eisner is a California-based photographer whose work focuses on “explorations of the American West.” Graphic, intense, and memorable—these would look great at the beach house.

Tomas Maier is located at 170 N.E. 40th Street, Miami, FL; 305-576-8383.
