Summertime has reached its zenith, and here at Style.com, we’re trying to soak up as much sun as possible—with weekend getaways, backyard barbecues, and maybe even a Six Flags excursion—before the Spring ’15 shows kick off in September. Naturally, we’ll be protecting our skin from UV exposure with SPF, but when sunblock alone doesn’t cut it, we’ll be reaching for cool straw hats. As we learned during the recent menswear and couture shows, when it comes to statement-making accessories, nothing gets street-style photographers snapping quite like a shady fedora or flat-topped boater. Ulyana Sergeenko was spotted in a woven lamp-shade style on the haute circuit, while back in NYC Lindsey Wixson wore a classic wide-brimmed look to cheer on the teams at Adidas’ Fanatic soccer tournament. Celebrities from Lupita Nyong’o to Dakota Johnson have been breaking out the woven headgear this season, too, and Michael Kors and Rosie Assoulin’s recent Resort collections featured matching raffia caps and totes.
Maniamania’s darkly elegant baubles are about to find luxe new life as the brand branches out with Immortalia, its first fine-jewelry effort, set to launch on themaniamania.com on March 10. Fans of the five-year-old line’s quietly macabre aesthetic will no doubt delight in Immortalia’s jumping-off point: Victorian and Georgian memento mori (from the Latin meaning “remember you will die”) trinkets. Here, though, the ghoulish 19th-century wares have been stripped of more literal motifs like skulls, withering blooms, et al., in favor of sophisticated styles that should please a variety of customers. Pieces range from Equinox, an upscale take on the knuckle ring featuring a delicate crescent moon with a pavé of gray and white diamonds, to Mineralia, a whopping cocktail ring in white gold, rutilated quartz, and champagne diamonds. For those with marriage on their minds, there are both an engagement and wedding band on offer. All nine of the collection’s styles, which are priced between $1,180 and $8,200, are handmade to order in New York using only ethically sourced and certified gems. The release also reunites Maniamania with Lindsey Wixson, who lends her otherworldly pout to the campaign. As designer Melanie Kamsler tells it, “We haven’t deviated too far. Our muse and inspirations are the same, it’s just a more sophisticated interpretation.” Have a first look at the collection here, exclusively on Style.com.
In addition to Lindsey Wixson, Jamie Bochert, Ming Xi, Soo Joo Park, and Nadja Bender, the star of Chanel’s Lagerfeld-lensed Pre-Spring ’14 video is a literal Chanel fashion machine, which gobbles up said models, and then releases them dripping in tweed and pearls. Could this magical mechanical contraption be a metaphor for the house’s designer-cum-filmmaker? Lagerfeld’s ability to churn out one lust-worthy collection after another is superhuman, at the very least. What would Freud have to say about this? Have a gander at Chanel’s new short, above.
When you think Paris fashion week, H&M isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind—however, that may be about to change. Today, WWD reports that the high street retailer, who held its first star-studded party and runway romp for its elevated H&M Studio range during PFW last February, is coming back for round two. The Fall ’14 event will be hosted at a yet-to-be-disclosed venue on February 26. Judging by the Fall ’13 event, which featured the likes of Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls, and Lindsey Wixson on the catwalk, and Ashley Olsen, Carine Roitfeld, and Chloë Moretz in the front row, it seems H&M’s February showing is poised to become a fashion week favorite.
