Expect to see Adler's quirky patterns, smart craftsmanship, and cheeky color palettes storm the fashion world with a 300-piece fall collection priced from $48 to $450.The robust range will launch during August Market Week and will be sold in company-owned stores, online, and at retailers for Spring 2013.
“It’s amazing to go from being a production potter to expanding into a zillion different categories,” Adler told WWD. He also revealed that jewelry will be available from Fall 2013.
Without a second guess, a daily horoscope feature is welcome in any publication. For years, many have looked to astrology for personal (love) or professional (new job) advice and the fashion community has cashed in on this cultural fascination to create both high-end and mass-market, products that depict star signs.
Beginnings of the trend in fashion and culture:
- Jewelry with motifs and meanings of ancient mythology have come alive through wings, animals and reptiles that hark back to medieval Gothic and Greco-Roman times: serpents, shields, dragons and astrological symbols.
- The release of Planetary Apothecary: An Astrological Approach to Health and Wellness by Stephanie Gailing in March 2009 marked a shifting point in culture. The book was featured on DailyCandy and bridged a New Age art with nutrition.
- Window decals with astrological signs were featured at the Missoni store in SoHo (NYC) in September 2010.
- Following F/W 2010's melting glacier, Karl Lagerfeld created a five-story gold lion to guard the Chanel runway, a reference to Mademoiselle Chanel’s astrological sign, Leo.
- Astrological printed motifs on the F/W 2010 Ruffian catwalk.
Moving into fall, we see this trend will evolving with astrological-inspired graphics and an array of charm bracelets for gift giving with half moons, shooting stars and ringed planets for the dreamy youth stargazer.
Designer Karl Lagerfeld has teamed up with Paris boutique Colette for a pop-up shop in a former garage. The store will be open from March 1 to 10, reported Women's Wear Daily.
It will sell graffiti-covered handbags, scooter helmets and CDs, alongside the spring collections of Chanel, Éres and a selection of young designers, as well as a Chanel collectible doll and bags customized by Chrome Hearts. There will also be a cupcake stand, nail bar and DJ in the industrial space at 336-340 Rue Saint-Honoré.
This collaboration is chock full of trendy goodness.
We love the Jesse Kamm & Elizabeth Yarborough popup installation at PulpLab in Seattle. Here are some photos of the event running March 21 - May 1, 2009.
Jesse Kamm: "La Pietra" Spring Collection
Designer and Los Angeles native Jesse Kamm creates all of the drawings for the textile designs in her Limited Edition collections. Kamm's trademark clothes include silk dresses, hand-printed tunics, and jackets--each handmade and signed by the designer. "Unique, simple, beautiful, loose, and vibrating with a story or tale of my journey," is how L.A.-based designer Jesse Kamm describes her own inspired collection of limited-edition clothing.
(We scored the blue & white bangle)
Anticipating the warm seasons ahead, designer Elizabeth Yarborough's collection of bangles for Pulp Lab feature wonderful lightweight yarns, including a heavenly, silk, tape-like yarn, multi-colored poly-blends, a cotton yarn that calls to mind a picnic, and her trademark wool bangles that have been featured in New York Times' "T" Magazine and WWD. These one-of-a-kind bangles can be worn comfortably year-round (especially here in the Pacific Northwest). Handcrafted in the East Village by North Carolina native Elizabeth Yarborough.
That's your tutorial for the weekend! Stay tuned...
