Fashion & Fitness Friday!

Happy Dance Friday!!!!!!!!!!

Tom Ford is frowning.  Or at least he could if he wants to.  The newly married daddy has decided to stop getting Botox and fillers and just age naturally, and he is blaming it on his son and the lack of time in his schedule now that he is a dad.  Yet another reason reverse commuter LOVES Tom Ford!!!  (see reversecommuter’s original Top 10 here)

Tom received the lifetime award at the CFDA awards on June 2nd.  And as everyone knows, Rihanna showed up in a completely transparent dress.

Diane Von Furstenberg - Runway - Spring 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Diane von Furstenberg really loves Google Glass.  She first unveiled the über-cool optics on her runway during the DVF Spring 2013 show.

DVF Made for Glass collection will launch on June 23 on Natalie Massenet’s net-a-porter.com and Porter.com for the men’s collection.  The goal is to deliver wearable tech to the fashion and technology advanced clientele.  Wearable tech is an area that industrial and fashion companies are extremely focused on, and Google Glass is truly the groundbreaker.

 

Glasses will be $1725 and sunglasses will be $1620, and please note that this is a limited collection!

 

bikinis and champs is the order for the weekend – enjoy!!!!!!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Holy Mother of all things LONG Week Related!  Hello Friday!

Google hearts Diane!  Yup, the love affair continues.  First the grand lady the wrap donned the funky GoogleGlass for her Spring 2013 runway show (click the blue for a refresher) and last night Diane chatted live for 40 minutes on #shopthehangout.google.com/+dvf…and it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

reversecommuter was beyond deliriously happy listening to Diane describe the essence of her designs and what she wants for her clients:

“I don’t want the dress to be remembered, I want the woman to be remembered”

“Buy things that will remain your friends for a long time”

“Be the woman you want to be.  The more you imagine it, the more it will happen” – this advice interestingly enough she gives to her two teenage granddaughters!

“I design simple clothes with details from old fashioned dress making – moulding the body to make it look effortlessly sexy”.

In addition to watching her chat live with Eva Chen, (editor of Lucky Magazine) and Michelle Phan (of youtube makeup fame), Google+ set up coordinating shopping windows so you could buy the looks as they were presented on your screen – UBER COOL CONCEPT!!!!

Marc Jacobs has left Louis Vuitton.  Some are saddened by the news, but reversecommuter thinks this is EXTREMELY exciting for the boy wonder of American fashion.  Marc Jacobs is gearing up to go public (probably inspired by Michael Kors KAZILLION DOLLAR successes).

PSME

In the words of Proenza Schouler (click here for more Proenza Schouler & reversecommuter), “…at the end of the day Tom Ford and Nicolas Ghesquiere (two of our idols) were just employees and they got fired.”  OUCH!  Better perhaps to be independent fashion designers, and “rock the independent vibe for sure!”

Those boys are prolific!

Happy Weekend – go pop some bubbles and in your highest heels “rock the independent vibe for sure!”

Fashion & Finance Friday!

NYFW (New York Fashion Week) the average cost of a fashion show is a ballpark $750,000.00.  NYFW also generates $865 MILLION ANNUALLY!!!!  WOWZER!

Google Glass was THE accessory at the Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2013 show. Sergey Brin, a Google co-founder and Diane hung out together backstage, pre-show to record, text and take pictures all through the one lensed wonder. Google is planning to launch then next year for approximately $1500.00.

Wonder if the models got to keep theirs?


Google released a short film, “DVF Through the Glass” to deliver what was captured at NYFW – COOL COOL F’ING COOL!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Diane, has the reversecommuter mentioned lately that you are DIVINE!!!!

Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend…chill, hug the ones you love and recover from NYFW!
