Best and Worst Shoes of Paris Fashion Week

Fashion month has come to a close and it’s time to recap some of the coolest and ehh not so cool shoes of Paris fashion week.

Aside from the amazing set design from the Chanel show, Karl unveiled transparency within his spring collection.

These clear, plastic rain boots were shown in a variety of sizes and styles from thigh high, to mid-calf length. Seems like last seasons perspex trend will still be in.

Another one of my favorites this season was the Balmain thigh high moto leather peep toe boot.

Is Amazon The Next Big Bad Wolf In Fashion?

Find. A name you’ll be seeing all over…maybe? Amazon launches their first in house fashion brand, with a whopping 500 womenswear pieces and 200 styles for men. Cosmo calls it a mash up between “Finery and Topshop only with some seriously affordable prices.”

I headed on over to Amazon to view the collection and to my surprise it wasn’t what I thought it would be. Lots of basics in neutral tones, pleats, and velvet textures. I did stumble upon some gems as I thought to myself I’d definitely buy that, but the more I scrolled the less enthused I was. However Telegraph states,

“What might surprise the fashion industry is that Amazon’s collection isn’t a bargain-basement attempt to undercut rivals on the price of basic T-shirts. Instead it is challenging rivals with more fashion-forward items: patent boots cost £56 ($72), high-waisted skinny jeans are priced at £26 ($34), while a checked blazer is £40 ($52).

It’s their first go-around so I see why they played it safe. I can definitely say that 99% of the collection is great for layering. More for the minimalist in you.

Find. has launched exclusively in the UK. While this is the first in house fashion brand for Amazon, the company has also quietly released 8 private label brands ranging in categories from food, fashion, beauty, and home.

Talk about one stop shop! Amazon is stopping at nothing to gain that consumer loyalty. To check out Find. click here, you’ll never know you might find something you love.

 This is looking to be the hottest beauty drop of the season and these other brands better watch out. With Nicki Minaj x M.A.C and Balmain x L’Oreal launching in the next few weeks I’m eager to see what these number are going to look like. Stay tuned for updates once the full collection drops.

Why Designers Are Opting Out of NYFW

Designers are dropping like flies out of NYFW! You’d think of New York as one of the fashion capitals of the world but as of late designers are taking their talents elsewhere. Not only that, others are feeling is having a runway show even necessary? After further research it all boils down to two reasons: high demand and all incorporating fashion into the culture.

“If the point of a show is to appeal to consumers, rather than cater to the needs of the fashion industry’s professional class, then why should conventions like the traditional static or catwalk presentation obtain? Perhaps there are other, fresher ways of getting the message out.” Maya Singer, Vogue.com

Most brands rely on the press during these shows to gain traction, momentum and to be buzzworthy for the season. With recent dropouts new brands are scrambling to take these spots because they know what it entails, for other established brands, who don’t heavily rely on those services anymore, are now looking for new ways to reach customers through innovative creative productions.

It’s bittersweet.

Yes you read that right. Stepping out of the box from their traditional “all-American” ads to embracing diversity, American Eagle is the latest fashion to debut hijabs in their product assortment.

This isn’t a look you see in everyday mainstream retailers, this is a big deal. Aden shared a video via Instagram thanking the brand with the caption reading,
