Famed Fashion Designer Jason Wu Designs Everything…Except The Kitchen Sink…

November 8th, 2011 by Christen Rochon

From the runways to electronic store shelves, Jason Wu is one of the leading fashion designers that has gone beyond the helm of designing fashions worn by models – into creating model designs of cameras, electronics and now powder room, kitchen faucets and accessories alike.

Since faucet brand Brizo® established a relationship with fashion designer Jason Wu in 2006, architects and designers have anxiously anticipated a collaborative collection between the two luxury brands. After many years in the making, the two brands are delighted to introduce the Jason Wu for Brizo Collection, a stylish powder room suite that merges the signature styles of both brands in a line of products for the bathroom. The collection reinforces the position of the Brizo brand as fashion forward and innovative, and it marks the debut of Jason Wu into the world of interior design.

“As a designer I thoroughly enjoyed working alongside the Brizo product team to translate my designs into a collection of products for the home. It was an exciting challenge combining my design aesthetic with the innovative technology of Brizo products,” said Wu.

“Much like fashion accessories help pull together an outfit, these added pieces complete the look of the home bathroom, allowing homeowners to infuse the collection’s style throughout the space to create one seamless, integrated design,” said Judd Lord, director of industrial design for Brizo products.

The complete collection will be available in showrooms in spring 2012, although pre-order reservations are available now through February 20, 2012 for a limited number of faucets and coordinating accessories.

MBFW: Falguni & Shane Peacock SS12

September 13th, 2011 by Christen Rochon

With many of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week shows already under our belts, the Falguni & Shane Spring/Summer 2012 show revealed itself as a great surprise in spring/summer fashions with its bold colors, wild patterns all while paying homage to the military fashion trends of the past. A striking interweaving of reptilian scales and insect-like patterns was a great break in the monotony of floral, dainty and spring like collections that we’ve experienced lately. Is this everyday fashion? By no means. But, these fantasy designs & color combinations are sure to be a hit on the red carpets for starlets looking to stand up and out amongst the rest…

Divas Drive in Heels: Social Media Super Coupe

September 1st, 2011 by Christen Rochon

A sleek stylish design.  Personal assistant-like capabilities.  This diva’s dream coupe!  

This sporty four-seat concept car was unveiled in Germany this week. The Evos will debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The Ford Evos plug-in hybrid concept vehicle is so smart, it can socially network with its driver’s friends and recommend roads and routes that might be quickest or the most fun to drive.

According to Ford, the vehicle gives its driver the ability to tap into this “personal cloud” of information at any time — for example, picking up where the driver left off on that favorite song he or she was listening to inside the house. The vehicle’s smart systems monitor its driver’s “physical state and workload,” adjusting the car’s handling, heating, cooling and music to suit the driver’s level of alertness, perhaps even keeping him from falling asleep.  A Ford spokesperson says, “The car gets to know you and can act as a personal assistant to handle some of the usual routines of a daily commute.”

When will you be able to test drive this beauty?  Not anytime soon – the company intends to use the ideas incorporated into this futuristic vehicle in many of its upcoming cars you’ll see on showroom floors.  Here’s hoping to a change of heart, because this diva could really get used to coupes like this ;)

Where true architecture meets shoe design.  The Iris van Herpen X United Nude product is a glamorous ankle bootie with smooth round lines and golden leather detailing on the front and back of the shoe, with three-dimensional characteristics. Transparency, reflections and movements create the effect of visual estrangement. The construction of the shoe is so complicated and precise that each pair is 100% hand-made with the highest grade Italian kid leather available. $1,295.00
