FashionRodarte Inspired by Australia


 
Already looking onto fall and winter 2012, we see the tawny visions of the Mulleavy sisters burgeoning from the outback. Inspired by Australian landscapes, the ferrous earth tones and Aboriginal-inspired handprints are an appropriate tie to the southern continent that is at this very moment basking in the first light of autumn.
 
 
 
 
 

 
 

FashionLooks We ♥: Citrus!

Something very unique happened this season.
 
Aside from the normal pastel color trends that appear every spring (which we love!) bold slices of citrus have made their own statement. Like a botanical illustrator, Stella McCartney has plied crisp prints of oranges, lemons and limes over stark white to set off the pure colors . . . but it doesn’t stop there! You don’t have to go photographic to enjoy the trend, simply pair highly saturated shades of yellow, orange, green, chartreuse or even pink for a refreshing look that will carry you well into summer!

BeautyFuturistic Fashion: Aeon Hair Rings

 
Okay, seriously. How rad are these hair rings?
If rock and roll and future fiction had a kid, these Aeon Hair Rings from Regal Rose would definitely be what it looked like. With the option of silver or gold, you can also choose a short, medium, or long package, depending on the length of your hair.
And they’re easy to boot! Just pull them apart, place strategically in your tresses, and pinch closed!
Want more? Regal Rose is the brain child of London fashionistas Rebecca and Louisa Warwick, and they have some really insane pieces you’ve got to check out. Read up on their blog, visit their Facebook page and Etsy shop, and then head on over to their site to snag some rings for yourself!

FashionWhatever Blows Your Skirt Up: Gizia Spring/Summer Couture 2012

 
Although it’s technically still winter, all the warm weather we’ve been having up here in Northern California has me dreaming of sun on my skin, the breeze in my hair, and lightweight airy fabrics perfect for a day on the beach or out on the town.
 
Luckily, one of my favorite clothing lines, Gizia, seems to have had the same feelings.
 
This incredible Turkish line is always creating some really powerful pictures, and their Spring/Summer 2012 LookBook is no exception. With “the richest Italian fabrics, decorated with Swarovski crystals and hand made embroidery, [they bring together] the assertive design lines” that make their clothing simply unforgettable.
 
 
You can see the rest of the entire GIZIA Spring/Summer 2012 collection, as well as some behind-the-scenes footage, on their website or on their Facebook page.
