Shop the Look: Dark Romance

-------

shop the look floral

Even though most of our favorite retailers began stocking the Spring ’14 collections weeks ago, we knew better than to get too excited. While we’re certainly keeping a mental list of next season’s best purchases, it’s safe to assume that, thanks to these subzero temperatures, we won’t get to wear them for quite a while. On the other hand, the thought of cycling through the same jackets and sweaters we’ve been donning since September isn’t very inspiring either. To give your wardrobe a quick reboot—and prepare for the (painfully slow) transition into spring—try any combination of dark floral prints. Black-based florals look fresh, unexpected, and moody. The best part? They work from day to night, making your usual evening outfit switch totally unnecessary. Shop our favorite dark florals from Givenchy, Erdem, Moschino Cheap And Chic, and more, below.

1. Erdem Jade floral-print napa leather biker jacket, $5,100, available at net-a-porter.com

2. Moschino Cheap And Chic daisy-print straight-leg pants, $459.68, available at net-a-porter.com

3. Byredo Fleur Fantome scented candle, $80, available at net-a-porter.com

4. Tory Burch flower-cluster mini bag, $295, available at shopbop.com

5. Givenchy floral-print leather pumps, $620, available at net-a-porter.com

Don’t Feed the Animals

Giles Deacon's Bat Hat

See that bat attacking Cara Delevingne’s face? That’s a hat by Stephen Jones for Giles Deacon, who, if you may recall, gained street-style traction a couple of seasons back with his adorably plush triceratops purses. As it turns out, the animal-as-accessory trend is back for Spring ’14, spearheaded by Jones x Deacon’s vampiric topper. But not all in this animal kingdom is nocturnal.

Things were sunnier at Moschino Cheap And Chic, thanks in part to a Crayola-pink lawn flamingo purse, which complemented the collection’s overarching Barbie-goes-to-Basel (Miami, not Switzerland) theme. Cheek has always been part of the Moschino vocabulary, but this felt particularly grin-worthy.

Animal bags from Moschino Cheap & Chic, and Ashley Williams

The buzz factor, though, belonged to Ashley Williams. Showing under Fashion East, the much-hyped designer offered stuffed-hammerhead shark purses, which rounded out her nautical-themed lineup with good-humored aplomb. And who was spotted eyeing Williams’ wares from the front row? None other than Harry Styles, who, we think, would look rather fetching carrying Williams’ deadly fish as a “murse.”

Moschino has announced it will show its Cheap And Chic label for the first time at London fashion week. Moschino’s main line, however, will continue to show in Milan. [Vogue U.K.]

Katie Holmes’ third campaign for H.Stern is out and she’s looking smoldering. The actress stripped down for the jewelry ads, so the images are mostly just sun-kissed skin and sparkling jewels. [Telegraph]

In celebration of Meryl Streep’s latest movie, The Iron Lady, photographer Brigitte Lacombe has released a series of behind-the-scenes images she’s taken of Streep during their 31-year friendship. Lacombe sat down with Nowness to talk about her friendship with one of Hollywood’s leading ladies. [Nowness]

Are You A Lolita?

-------


Thirteen-year-old blogging sensations are just the beginning. For Spring, designers kicked their youth obsession up a notch by indulging in some Lolita fantasies. Christopher Kane drew inspiration directly from the Kubrick movie for his sweet gingham baby-doll dresses, and Stella McCartney‘s off-the-shoulder ruffled blouse and Moschino Cheap & Chic‘s retro two-piece and floppy sun hat might also have been plucked directly from the film’s costume department. At Prada, meanwhile, itty-bitty pinafores were paired with pigtails, red lips, and plastic shades—the only thing missing was a cherry lollipop.

Two-For-One Dresses—Gimmicky or Genius?

-------


Designers produced plenty of surreal fashion for Fall—Dolce & Gabbana’s glove hat, anyone? The most wearable take on the wackiness trend just might be the split-personality dress, seen, for starters, at Aquilano.Rimondi, Josh Goot, and Versace. Depending on your vantage point, the woman in Alexandre Herchcovitch’s little number is dolled up in sequins, or playing it simple in a silk print. And remember last season’s mullet gowns? Moschino Cheap & Chic’s Rosella Jardini has given the concept a new spin with her business-on-one-side, party-on-the-other skirt. Click here for a slideshow, and let us know what you think of the season’s off-kilter look.
