1) The rise of the lower priced line:

  1. Zac Posen is launching Zac Zac Posen, a mid-priced line really
  2. Oscar de la Renta is developing such a line for The Outnet
  3. Prabal Gurung for Target launches tomorrow
  • My initial impression of lower priced lines was “Huzzah, I can be chic too!”
  • But will the novelty end soon?

2) New York Fashion Week has commenced!

3) Montreal Fashion Week just wrapped up

  • It wants to branch out globally
  • I’m surprised that major Canadian retailers that are based in Montreal, like Aldo and Jacob, don’t have more of a presence here

1) Elle brings you Prabal Gurung’s Target collection

  • There are a lot of dresses, I’m not into dresses
  • The line is quite print heavy, a la Peter Pilotto or Mary Katrantzou
  • I kind of have print fatigue
  • I do love Prabal Gurung though

2) Ralph Lauren had a show at Highclere Castle

  • Highclere Castle=Downton Abbey!!
  • He also sponsors the show
  • His Fall 2012 show was quite Downton-inspired, more specifically, Lady Edith-inspired
  • I want to go to there

3) Glamour has a 2013 Critic’s Choice Awards Fashion round-up

  • Am disappointed with wardrobe choices. ¬†All of them.
  • That is all.

1)  Prabal Gurung instagrammed his mood board for his fall 2013 line.

  • I guess “instragrammed” is a verb now, although spell-check disagrees
  • There’s a lot of Romeo & Juliet inspiration, with pictures of Leo & Claire
  • Does that mean a California vibe for the collection?

2) China is now the largest consumer of luxury goods

  • No doubt, the industry has been catering to this market, by featuring Chinese models
  • But, I am a bit surprised that a designer from China has not hit it big yet

3) This is Jessica Chastain’s BEST.COVER.EVER. (Vogue Germany, January 2013)
