The knit pant trend a la Chanel and Marc Jacobs was prevalent on the runway, as were bullhorns for a rambunctious closing in the form of a fashion protest!

Stuart Weitzman is known for his over-the-knee boot, aka the 5050 leather in the front, micro spandex stretch in the back (think of it as the mullet boot!).

Now Stuart is going for #ROCKROLLRIDE über fashion-focused wild abandon weekend away gorgeousness in the form of a video directed by Julia Restoin Roitfeld, a model and daughter of Carine, former editor of Vogue Paris and absolute fashion muse.  Poppy Delevingne, sister of model of the moment Cara, and Dylan Penn, model and daughter of the ultimate Princess Bride, Robin Wright, star in the video.  reverse commuter is beyond LOVING this video, the fashion, the music, the editing, it all just works seamlessly, barely noticeable is that you are being sold a pair of boots!

Design your very own pair of the Lowland online here, and obsess over the video all day long – you are very welcome.

Pack a picnic, including a flute and a bottle of champs, wear amazing boots, throw in a little fringe, and make your own version of the video this weekend!

Equipment is THE silk shirt brand (click the blue phrase to go to website).  Relaunched in 2010 by Serge Azria (as in Serge Azria, owner of both Current/Elliot & Joie), now every favorite fashion girl’s go to piece.

This is THE piece to break up the monotony of your daily wardrobe.  No need to reach up into the t-shirt pile today.

The goddesses over at Mode Operandi are currently selling Equipment Spring 2013 Collection.  But if the Zebra Grid Signature Blouse  and the Archive Tropical Floral Remy Utility dress are no longer available in a small, je m’excuse!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

HURRAH!!!!!!!! It’s Friday!

China’s online shoppers are expected to have more than 700 MILLION online shoppers and ring in more than $360 BILLION by 2015….WOWZER!!!!!!

Boston Consulting Group has released a report calling China the “Online Empire”, which makes perfect sense when you hit numbers like that!

Talbots announced it lost $53.3 MILLION in their fourth quarter, bringing it up to a $111.9 MILLION loss for the entire year. Perhaps Talbots needs to buff up their online presence in China…..just saying.

CR, Carine Roitfeld’s new magazine, premiere issue is slated for September! I absolutely love her and have missed her influence in French Vogue. Obviously it will deliver crazy fashion editorials but will also emphasize creativity in other forms such as writing, photography etc. V Cool concept. Only negative is that it is only a biannual mag.
