Rodarte style for Everyone

When looking to a fashion show or to a fashion editoril, the styling seems the simplest thing, but when we go shopping or when we open the doors of our wardrobe seems to have entered the twilight zone where nothing makes sense no matter how much the effort. With this in mind, the Mullevy sisters shows us how to mix up their new holliday collection for Target.
"Laura and I were inspired to do this collection by the films that transformed our youth. Harold and Maude, Rosemary's Baby and Bonnie and Clyde are all movies with interesting, free-spirited women who question the status quo. We didn't want to create clothes that literally looked like they belonged in those films, but instead we wanted to capture the feeling of their worlds. We have been collaborating with Autumn de Wilde since our first show. Her photographs bring out the spirit of our work and reveal moments that we would have never seen unless she were there to capture them." Kate Mulleavy, Rodarte.

It´s a classical Hollywood love story.

Sarah Jessica Parker to Consult for Halston

Many media outlets are reporting news of film star and fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker's upcoming role as designer and/or consultant at the house of Halston. A source at Halston told PAPERMAG that SJP will actually be a member of the company's board and will receive equity in the company. Company insiders insist all designing will be handled by creative director Marios Schwab and shudder at comparisons to the House of Ungaro which has suffered ridicule for it's affiliation with actress Lindsay Lohan.

Rio Fashion Week 2010

This week Rio De Janiero is running mad as the host of Brazilian fashion week, under the title 'Olympic and Marvelous'. Designers are set to showcase their collections across three remodelled warehouse locations, the perfect eerie backdrops to an array of unique creations.

In true Brazilian style, the fashions so far on display have included vibrant, flirtatious designs amidst mysterious, gothic inspired creations. Label Mara Mac'a 2010 Autumn/Winter collection worked the trench coat with vibrant splashes of citrus, whilst colour was abundant in the rainbow hairstyles seen on the Coven runway. Our personal favourite so far has been the runway of Auslander, with designer Ricardo Brautigam explaining his collection as 'gothic rock surrealist glamour'. Models wore sheer polka dot gloves adorned with fierce spikes, giving off a contrast between feminine and soft and that of hard edge gothic glam. Models faces were painted white and worked with the overall black palette of the collection.
