OYE Swimwear, an Istanbul-based line, is launching in the U.S. with its Summer 2013 collection. Backed by sisters Zeynep and Ayca Sadikoglu, OYE practically guaranteed to turn heads, incorporating plenty of low necklines and sheer mesh inserts into their designs.
Pieces will be available to shop on neimanmarcus.com starting in mid-April, with prices starting at $295.
Earlier this year we posted about Stuart Weitzman designing for Broadway’s Cinderella. Well now, Nicholas Kirkwood has joined the fantasy world and has with Disney to create a four-piece collection of heels fit for any real-life heroine. The capsule collection is inspired by Disney’s latest offering, Oz The Great and Powerful, with each pair drawing inspiration from a lead character: the Wizard, Glinda, Evanora, and Theodora.
These unique shoes range from crystal-encrusted heels to black-and-ruby-sequined boots, and — a first for Kirkwood — a men’s brogue. The shoes are currently on display as part of Selfridge’s Shoe Carnival. And the costumes worn by James Franco, Michelle Williams, and the rest of the cast feature in the department store’s window display as well!
If you are fortunate enough to get a chance to see it in person, we are totally jealous! But if not, here’s a glimpse!
The iconic prints of Diane von Furstenberg are making it’s way to surfer-gal line, Roxy, in a collection launching this month. The vibrant line includes swimwear, beach cover-ups, shorts, boardwalk-ready bags, and more, all priced between $38 to $88.
What’s even more exciting that is that those of us who live in NYC can check out the goods in person at a VIP shopping event at 519 Broadway on March 6 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Can’t make it! Not to worry! DVF Loves Roxy will be available on March 7 at select DVF and Roxy stores, as well as roxy.com.
Converse shoes were a major ’70s influence seen on the runways and is about to hit the streets. As of February 15, Converse debuts First String Standards, a collection of sneakers reissued from the Chuck Taylor All Star vault. The shoes feature high rubber ridges and a wider curve at the toe. These classics were once worn by style icons such as Patti Smith, Joan Jett, and Farrah Fawcett.
The shoes retail on Converse.com for $70, and by April, resurrected color-s will include the likes of Pool Blue and Sunflower Yellow. For now though, they’re only for sale in black and white.
Following in the footsteps of Nicole Richie and Erin Wasson, 90210 star Shenae Grimes is taking her red carpet experience and turning it into gold. Grimes has paired with Cut & Run London to release a series of limited-edition jewelry pieces inspired by California’s desert wonderland.
The range includes key-shaped pendants, long earrings made of metal-cast feathers, and braided rings with tiny charms in the middle. Grimes co-designed each piece along with her fiance, male model Josh Beech who owns Cut & Run with musician Dean Richardson.
Grimes told Elle Magazine, “I live in Los Angeles, and Josh is from London,” says Grimes, “So we combined his London edge with my L.A. vibes. We really just like creating pieces that we’d both like to wear and can’t find anywhere else.”
Stuart Weitzman’s shoes have made the feet to celebrities, royals, and stylish women around the world.
But recently, the designer was tasked with creating the iconic glass slipper for Broadway’s Cinderella!
No real glass here though, as his final product incorporates vinyl, Lucite, and Swarovski crystals.
What’s the best part? You don’t need to be a real princess to own a pair! Weitzman’s “Clearly Timeless” collection includes heels and flats, all made in a similar style to the professional pair, and are available online now.
