Metallics. I guess that’s what we’ll be hearing from the fashion people. Lots and lots of metallics. But this is why you have to be rich for this. Because these coats, they are gorgeous. And they go away after 3 months or less. You remember that awesome trench coat from a couple of seasons ago with the leather sleeves? Click here... Full Article

Just making sure – you’re not tired of prints yet, are you? Because we haven’t even gotten to Erdem. But these pants! I want to be brave enough to wear some of these pants! PS there is a model in this show whose legs are so long you might think she’s wearing stilts underneath. Full Article

I love Preen a lot but I have some sizing issues with it. Could just be my body? Thing is I’ve heard this from several retailers. And I know of one in particular that stopped carrying the line because of it. Preen’s tailored dresses are especially weirdly cut around curves and bulge unflatteringly around the midsection and ass if you’re not long and lean. Full Article

It’s so hard to find Acne in Canada. At least not the way it’s sold, with so many pieces on display, at Opening Ceremony, for example, in LA. That might be the only redeeming quality of LA – the shopping. Acne, by the way, makes really, really great boots.  Full Article

Sasha Answers: Go for the work dude

Sasha Posted by Sasha at September 17, 2012 19:07:58 September 17, 2012 19:07:58

Hey Sasha!  I'm pushing 30, single, and all my friends are married. Even my baby brother. They all go out for group dinners, double dates, weekends up north and all that - couples only. Since they rarely invite me out with them, I really have no idea where to meet guys at this age. I'm not a club scene kind of girl, nor am I into the online dating thing. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Why isn’t my best friend happy for me?

Hi Sasha.  So here’s my issue.  Last year was my freshman year of college and it was less than exciting to say the least.  I sort of slacked off in high school and ended up at a college that was absolutely not my first choice.  Although the school wasn’t for me, my best friend since I was young ended up going to that same school as well which worked out nicely. Full Article

Dylan said to me the other day – why are all your TIFF dresses hanging below the knee? This is my new length. Am trying to wear everything below the knee this season. And it’s the same on the runways too. No asses are hanging out, no legs are exposed. Paul Smith seems to be following that directive. Full Article

Does it seem like a really fussy collection? Maybe it’s the shoes throwing me off and all that business flinging itself everywhere down below, taking attention away from the clothing which is already rather intricate. Too much, I think. And totally Kanye West’s girlfriend, right?  Full Article
