The next time you put on a pair of boots imagine how easy it is to make a big difference.

Here at Fashion News Live, we are all for a great and fashionable cause. I have recently been on the hunt for a cute and weather-resistant pair of rain boots. I am absolutely in love with these unisex weather proof boots by Roma. These boots sell from a hybrid company called Roma Provisions that combines business with charity. For every pair sold in the U.S–Roma For All— gives a pair to a child in need in parts of eastern and central Europe. How fab is that!??

Nicholas K Fall 2011: “Into the Wild”

NICHOLAS K FALL 2011: INTO THE WILD

“New York, NY, February 6th, 2011: For the Fall/Winter 2011 season, designer Nicholas Kunz and her brother/business partner Christopher Kunz will show their Nicholas K collection at Lincoln Center during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Thursday, September 10th at 9 am in the Studio. This will be the second time the brand will kick-off MBFW, following last season when Nicholas K was the first show EVER at Lincoln Center.

Hailing from Arizona, Nicholas and Christopher grew up spending a lot of time in the outdoors and love to go fishing and camping. After living in New York City for several years, the brother & sister duo decided to finally look for a refuge in Upstate NY where they could bring their dog (the popular Boxer, Jake, who always makes the runway exit with them after their shows) and participate in the outdoor sports they love. This search for the perfect cabin, surrounded by protected land with reservoirs, trails for hiking, forests for hunting and streams for fishing, became an inspiration for this upcoming Fall collection.

As Nicholas explains, “For our Fall collection, I was inspired by the woods and rustic living; the survival instinct and going back to primitive ways. The fall colors of the forest are reflected in the palette and overall aesthetic and I used a lot of texture and incorporated Navajo inspired prints. Think log homes, gypsies,  stone fireplaces, owls, camping and migration.” Movies such as The Wilderness Family, A River Runs Through It, Legends of the Fall and Into the Wild also served as inspiration.

The collection features fabrics such as; rich corduroys, hunter green silk velvets and butter-soft lambskin and warm Mongolian furs. Key styles include chunky hand-knit cable sweaters with hand knotted leather buttons, tiered ruffle skirts that can be worn as dresses and many pieces are made with multifunctional details. Colors include rust orange, hunter green, evergreen, moss, birch, snow, harvest, bark and mud brown. This season, Nicholas has collaborated with Vintage Shoe Co. to create limited edition  boots, including a unique “Creeper” update, which will be shown in several colorways and used for both men’s and women’s looks. Napoleon Perdis will the doing the make-up, with Rodney Cutler as the lead artist for hair, Nails by Dashing Diva and Tom Guinness styling (a first time collaboration for the brand).”

Style File: Chic Chick


I put together this chic & stylish look that can be worn during the day or night! What I absolutely love about this look is the bright and funky Sass & Bide crop top. A pattern printed shirt is a great & easy way to accessorize your outfit without the need for extra bling. I added a bold watch by Michael Kors as well as a rose gold cuff by Morado to compliment the look. I paired up this funky top with a pair of plain black tapered trousers by A.L.C.  (Trousers are huge this season!!) A good pair can elongate your legs and compliment your figure. I had to add black pumps by Christian Louboutin to spice up this look. (I can never get enough of the red-dipped soles.) I chose a fierce faux fur hand bag by Melie Biaco and topped the look off with Chanel’s bold red lip color and polish. TAH DAH! Can you say attack of the fierce?

Chic Chick–Love it or hate it? xxo

Trend Alert: Prada Fur Stole

Prada is blowing the fashion world away with it’s S/S 2011 collection. Not only is the collection one of the most fun and talked about from the last round of fashion weeks in September, but the ads and videos being released are fresh and have you ready to transition into the breeziness of spring. The fur stole seems to be the hottest item of the moment. The multi-colored, patterned stoles are near perfection, spotted on the likes of Marc Jacobs, Anna Dello Russo and Rihanna in her latest video, S&M, just to name a few.

These Prada stoles are attracting a lot attention and being replicated with faux fur, which we prefer over real, anyday. We want to know if you guys would rock a similar or “fake” look?

I’m sure we will be seeing this item a lot throughout spring and maybe even as an accessory on the beaches this summer. Love it or hate?

First Look: Custo Fall 2011

FALL-WINTER 2011/12 – RIOT GRRRRLS

custo barcelona

Inspiration for the Collection

“As the start of a new decade, 2011 is a great time for renewal and change, for breaking new ground to shake up the form and content of things.

Through work with textures, handmade details, a totally new colour palette and graphics that evolve but preserve their DNA, a whole new set of results is achieved in the FALL-WINTER 2011-12 collection from CUSTO BARCELONA.”

The collection is divided into four themed groups:

SWEET UNIFORM

One of the sources of inspiration for this collection is a reinterpretation of the military look, put through a ‘sweet’ filter.

Texture Doll

From B-movie grunge to Camden boho and from rebel undergrads to goth Lolitas. These girls are rich kids that behave badly, unkempt, uncaring, sure of themselves and of being different.

3D

This group features the three-dimensional aspects of the graphics and the fabrics used. Few pieces transmit a message of such marked coherence and Custo personality. A language of its own, with elements designed to work autonomously, enhanced by combinations of stunning, unusual colours.

LONDON CALLING

Behind every collection is a great song, a powerful cultural fragment with a touch of the rebellious.
