Ralph Lauren’s Olympics Uniforms

Preppy Olympics uniforms? Yes it’s here and it’s by Ralph Lauren! The velvet leotards, the flips and the landings are all oh so lovable! Standard red, white and navy blue are used (and they compliment each other perfectly). No doubt the American team of this year’s Olympics will look preppier than ever. The opening-ceremony look consists of classy navy blazers with white driving hats and canvas walking shoes; for the closing ceremonies, it’s classic polos and sleeveless sweaters.

The retail community decided they would participate in the Gay Pride week in New York City this year. The Ralph Lauren boutique down on Bleecker Street in the West Village features mannequins who are wearing Polo shirts in rainbow colour.

Meanwhile, Marc Jacobs is also selling a T-shirt featuring the Confederate Flag in rainbow colors. The store features a giant poster with Jacobs in high heels, a graphic patterned fur coat, an amusing hat and a face full of makeup.

Shophound reports; “Can Marc’s peerless fashion clout make the rainbow flag hip once again by presenting it in a twisted, vaguely paradoxical, potentially controversial way?

Michael Stipe’s Sculptures and Rogan’s Clothes

Michael Stipe Rogan sculpture

Two great events in one post? Fashion designer Rogan is opening a new boutique in New York, and New York magazine reports that R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe will be having an art show there, exhibiting some bronze sculptures he did of cameras and music devices. Said Stipe:

“The radio alarm clock … changed forever the fragile state between sleeping and waking, allowing you to wake to your favorite radio station … The polaroid revolutionized photography by providing instant images available to anyone … Cassettes provided portable, compact music, altering forever the influence of radio as the individual became their own disc jockey.”

The items are not for sale but if you show up on the 27th you can pick up a Rogan Stipe T-shirt.

Hermès fall/winter 2008: Herb Tea with a Twist

I can feel the stress of Veronique Nichanian every season when I look at Hermès male line. When compared to its other half, “bad boy” Jean Paul Gaultier, Nichanian is like the big sister who can’t cross the line especially because Hermès has got to remain classy. Even she can use the world’s most extortionate fabrics and materials, Nichanian needs to remain discreet and subtle in her design concept. That’s why you need to look at Hermès design from a another perspective. For instance, this season Nichanian put her creativity in unconventional duos like dark and vibrant colours, raw material and detailed cutting…etc. As if she is taking Jean Paul Gaultier on.

Nichanian intelligently made the male line of Hermès look as if they’re very comfortable, with a pinch of creativity. In case this does not come out as legendary, it would at least work as a fashion “herbal tea”, providing homeopathic stress relief for the fashion audience. I noticed that there are some uneven collar shirts, showing a minor characteristic of a rebellious boy perhaps, or maybe she’s trying to create gentleman with a twist.

Trendpick: Shearling Chic: Shearling ching’s big coats is a new come back, becoming fall/winter’s new love. Hermès, however, focuses on the collar of shearling, laying low yet following the trend.

Juicy Couture, We all got the sweet tooth for it

Juicy Couture is taking Palm Beach California as its muse for the Spring/Summer 08. A lot of colours used to match simple and fitted cutting. It is no secret that Juicy Couture loves their candy-like colours. This season it continues with more hip colours such as jade, day light yellow and rouge to go along with exotic patterns (bringing on the casual summertime feeling aye?)

From what I am seeing, towelling is still this season’s hip item. Other than the classic velvet towelling tracksuit, exotic printing and patterns can be seen on Juicy Couture’s new items. Towelling and velvet one piece and tube top dresses are also introduced this season. Are you ready for a juicy spring/summer?

And yes, J. Lo and Madonna are still loving it.
