With sleeves perpetually pushed up (because they look better that way), Tienlyn thrives on a conceptual approach to fashion just as much as she does when getting her hands dirty, which is often.

Givenchy resort: digital delights

When one thinks resort wear, first thoughts tend to circle around whites, brights and pastels in lightweight or diaphanous fabrics mixed in with swim pieces and open toed footgear. You know, the sort of thing one might expect to wear on a fantasy trip to St. Tropez, the Hamptons or even Palm Springs. What one doesn’t expect, however, is a collection so sublime that it…

In the spirit of Helmut Newton

Whether it’s involuntary or willing, there is a severity in Helmut Newton‘s work that seizes the attention of viewers, thrusting them into a world acute with eroticism. A commanding equilibrium of severity and sensuality, the subjects of his images are powerful, sharp and austere – much like the high contrast characteristic of Helmut Newton’s work, making him a fashion household name and a ground breaking…

A way to wear sheer: Candice Swanepoel

At this point, we’re all used to seeing Candice Swanepoel in next to nothing. So why is it that when she was photographed outside Christian Dior fall 2011, she was even more provocative than when donning the standard Victoria’s Secret uniform of bra and panty? Perhaps this is due to the fervor incited in us by her crocheted black bra top with diamond webbing wrapping…

Style is alive and well in San Francisco

San Francisco is a great city to raise children, but I was very happy to leave it. There’s no style, nobody dresses up-you can’t be chic there. It’s all shorts and hiking books and Tevas-it’s as if everyone is dressed to go on a camping trip. I don’t think people really care how they look there; and I look like a mess when I’m there,…

Dreamy printed swimwear

Ever have a dream that lingers long after you awaken – at first all consuming and then slowly tapers off, until all that is left is a feeling? Well, that is the exact feeling evoked by the Australian swimwear line We Are Handsome‘s new collection, titled ‘The Memoirs’. The swim and sportswear pieces feature HD graphic prints of atmospheric terrains, wolves, horses and escaping hot…

Balenciaga buckle boots

What’s the best way to wear boots throughout the warm months? With ventilation, of course. Lighten them up and dress them down with an unexpected splash of pink. Equal parts punk to quirky chic, you’ll be the coolest chick on the block – pun totally intended.

A balance of fabric and skin

Crop tops are not going anywhere this season and that’s a fact. This is a good thing considering that it’s the perfect companion for a maxi skirt. Not only does the length of the skirt prevent a bared midriff from being too risque, but the crop top keeps the maxi skirt from wandering over into Amish territory. Even better if said maxi skirt is sheer.…

Karlie Kloss sans classic beauty

I’ll never forget the ‘haircut’. It was high school and all the girls were cutting their hair into chin length bobs. Overnight, the three years I had spent growing out my hair meant nothing. Breathless from excitement, I hurled myself into the stylist’s chair, a pile of magazine tears in my lap. The following week was spent strutting around school flipping my hair to a…

Aymeline Valade twists

French Model and face of Alexander Wang’s first print campaign, Aymeline Valade puts a twist on the classics. Not only does she couple preppy layering with a motorcycle jacket, but forgoes the standard white collar for a denim button up, achieving a fresh take on tomboyish elegance.

Lindsey Thornburg: mystic dreams

Photographer Olivia Malone brings a pervasive quality to Lindsey Thornburg’s spring 2011 look book that can only be described as alchemy. Incantations of dresses and cloaks with a smattering of hand dyed graphic patterns evoke a dream-like mysticism and otherworldliness, making it difficult to choose a singular stand out piece. The Amber Dress, however, fabricated from loosely draped poly netting and layered over an apricot…
