Getting Public School’d

Public School was in Boston October 20th!  (Obviously I had to take a picture of the perfectly timed school bus sitting outside the W Hotel during the Public School party.)

The CFDA 2013 winning design duo extraordinaire, were at Saks Fifth Avenue for a q&a session, followed by a private party for Public School held at the  W.

The evening allowed Boston fashion fans to meet, ask questions, and even party late late late into the night with these incredibly talented and mad friendly designers.

Models rotated looks from the current and upcoming collections while the crowd posed, clinked glasses, danced and happily hung out with Dao Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne – or at least that is how reversecommuter did it!

The tartan biased cut skirt (think flannel tartan shirt tied sloppily at the waist and dangling down at various angles) was an absolute fave.  Public School’s current FW’16 collection offers this in a darker tartan, and the upcoming Spring ’17 collection it will be in black and white.

Nothing better than a skirt designed to work with boots and a t-shirt or elevated with ankle boots and a leather top.  The beauty of Public School’s designs is that they can absolutely be worn every single day in the ‘burbs.  Ironic that when the children go to school the moms can wear Public School!

Public School‘s Fall 2016 magenta biker jacket better be in Santa’s sack for this blogger, it is THAT good a statement piece.  This brilliant jacket will make any grey winter day seem a little blast of tropical happiness blew in!

Public School is also launching the  Fitbit Alta collection, offering two sleek and stylish  models that will make capturing those alluring 10,000 steps even more of an accomplishment – ever notice how obsessive a behavior that can be?!

reversecommuter has been a fan of this design duo for a while, the CFDA brought them to my attention, their designs have continued to capture my attention, and Maxwell Osborne’s Black Lives Matter letter to W Magazine fully delivered my loyalty.

ps my phone case is super cute (a Chanel perfume bottle shape with pink sparkles floating on the back – however my blurry pictures confirm it is infringing upon the camera lens – time to replace…

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Pharell has once again CRUSHED IT in regards to what everyone has attempted to do.

Adidas has launched the collection by Pharell and equality is the name of the game, and it is delivered in exquisite fashion.

Price points vary reflecting material choice, for example a satin jacket is considerably less than the leather version.

Diane von Furstenberg is hyping the wrap dress once again and this time in California.  As a direct result of her IMMENSELY successful wrap dress exhibit in Los Angeles (click here for a refresher) she is going to open three new California boutiques.  One shop will be dedicated to the wrap dress – such a fun cool concept!

reversecommuter ALWAYS grabs a DVF wrap dress when I have a “i-don’t-have-anything-to-wear moment of crisis!

Nike obliterates the competition with their technology and reverse commuter is the proud owner (and creator) of possibly THE SICKEST b-ball shoes ever thanks to NikeID.

Nike brand president Trevor Edwards has pushed the technology envelope since joining Nike in June 2012, and one of the company’s target areas is women.

reversecommuter has a SERIOUS man crush.

It’s nothing new, ever since Tom Ford was the lead designer for Gucci, I have had a mad love for this sexy talented gorgeous man.

Now back to Tom.  PURRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

So #1 was his Gucci role.  #2 is his lipstick – seriously how can you pull out any other tube. LUXURIOUS.

#3 is his eyewear.  Julianne Moore was quoted in a recent Elle Decor as saying his reading glasses were one of the things she could not live without.  (click the blue to read).  I am right there with that uber fab red head, and I don’t even wear reading glasses, yet…but that doesn’t mean I can’t stock pile a pair or two!

#4 would be the black booties carried at Bergdorf.  BE-YOND.   Salivate for yourself, click here.

#5 – #10 are from his current Collection.  Specifically looks # 7, 10, 12, 13 & 16.
