Hellessy__98 (1)

What do you get when you combine Parisian style with Japanese simplicity? The answer is Hellessy, the ready-to-wear line born of French/Japanese designer, Sylvie Millstein. The Paris born beauty lived in Tokyo for years before moving to NYC in 2007, and worked for esteemed fashion houses Givenchy and Chanel, as well as Harrods before using her wide experience to create her own collection. Hellessy’s effortless pieces are crafted in luxe materials that translate seamlessly into a modern, working wardrobe. This season’s collection proved no different, and included a variety of wearable items – from a perfect autumn poncho to a pair of leather bellbottoms paired down with a simple striped top. We caught up with Sylvie to get her style tips for dressing chic and maintaining a well-edited wardrobe.

Daniel Silverstain has been making waves in the fashion community ever since he arrived on the scene in 2011. Early on, Daniel was selected by Vogue Italy as one of Muuse’s Top 10 Most Promising Designers, and in 2013 was a finalist in ELLE’s Fashion Next Fashion Show. Daniel was very recently accepted as a member of the CFDA+ and recognized for his outstanding achievement in Womenswear Design. With design experience under his belt from working at Calvin Klein Collection, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Ellie Tahari, the young Israeli designer is finally showing his own collection at NYFW for the first time.

[NYFW] Interview w/ Designer Kaelen Haworth on the Importance of Staying Local & Having Fun! via Guest of a Guest

September 6th, 2014 admin

Photo_1
Canadian cool girl Kaelen Haworth has the sort of self-possessed ease of manner typical of someone twice her age, with a sense of style that’s as authentically hip as they come. So it’s no surprise that her eponymous womenswear line, KAELEN reflects the same statement-making, yet effortless presence of the designer herself. Kaelen’s aesthetic tends toward minimalist designs with stand out elements like bold volume and luxurious textures – each more covetable than the last.

This season, we took a moment with Kaelen during her spring show at the High Line Hotel to find out more about what drives this young designer’s dedication, how she pulls it all off and still manages to have fun during NYFW!

NATTY [Life] STYLE: An Avocadoutfit & Good Fat Day Recipes

August 27th, 2014 admin

Avo necklace

You know you’re a food geek when your clothing starts to remind you of produce.  Such was the inspiration for this post, which came from a necklace that I call my avocado collar because; well… it kinda looks like one!  I jokingly call this my “dumpy brown jumpsuit” because on paper, it should be dumpy and hideous.  Yet somehow, it’s actually pretty awesome!  Sometimes something that sounds bad can actually be good; like FAT, as in the monounsaturated kind that’s in avocados.  

 

In any case, avocados are still in season – and every time I pass by the produce section, I can’t help but toss a few of nature’s “green butter”, as I call em, into my tote.  Besides being down right delicious, avocados are Healthy Hippie approved because they are made up of mostly monounsaturated fat, aka “good fat”: the sort that lowers the bad and raises the good levels of cholesterol in your bloodstream.  They’re high in both protein and fiber so they’re incredibly satiating and have even been shown to reduce BMI and boost metabolism, and their high potassium content works to regulate blood sugar levels and control blood pressure.  Avocados are also loaded with vitamins K, C and E, plus carotenoids and Omega-9 fatty acids – all essential nutrients for glowing skin.  So basically, the incredible edible avocado makes you look as good as you feel!  Are you sold?!  Great, now let’s eat…

 

Sure, everyone loves guacamole, but if by this late in the season you’re looking to get a little more creative with your avo – check out 5 of my favorite ways to indulge deliciously.  

 

As always, my recipes require few ingredients, little effort and lots of reward!!

So we tapped our very own Fashion Correspondent, Natalie Decleve of Hippie in Heels, to get some simple, healthy recipe ideas to fuel us through the rest of the season. Click through for 5 recipes that are as easy as they are healthy, and why.

[LINE TO LOVE] My Summer Collab with The Royal Native + FREEBIES & DISCOUNTS!

July 29th, 2014 admin

Royal Native Summer 14 LB copyGrowing up in California, surf and skate culture heavily influenced my style as a teenager.  The distinctive fashions surrounding the sports were probably my first way of identifying myself through clothing.  So, although I haven’t worn bobby socks or baggy jeans in over a decade – I still love a good flannel and was thrilled when Vans recently came back in style!

 

Royal Native is a brand who’s ethos revolves heavily around global, bohemian style with a sporty influence – thanks to it’s founder and designer, Hilary de Roy.  Hilary began designing the line with African wax print shorts because they appealed to both girlie girls and tomboys of all kinds, redefining “sexy” as something we can all relate to.  Equally at home on the beach in Montauk, worn with a billowing blouse in St Barths or a sneaker and slouchy T in the city – Royal Native shorts are the ultimate in effortlessly cool.

Hilary and I worked together back in our days at DVF (she ran the flagship store, I was in the corporate office) and when she showed me the new line – I was immediately hooked.  So it seemed only natural to partner with her for her Spring/Summer campaign and lookbook.  Inspired by Dogtown and Z-Boys, Hilary wanted the vibe of the shoot to feel very skater girl, west coast, flirty and youthful.  So the two of us pulled a bunch of accessories from our own closets, and had a ball mixing and matching the brightly printed shorts the way we’d wear them ourselves.

 

The line is still in it’s toddler years, but has already expanded into beach bags and tops; while cropped pants, bell bottoms and scalloped styles are just a few of the goodies we have to look forward to next season from the Royal Native!
