Shop the Look: La Vie En Rose

Shop the Look: Pink Neiman Marcus

In case you missed it, pink is having a major moment this year. We fell in love with the bold pops of fuchsia at Alexander Wang, Thakoon, and dozens more Fall ’14 shows, and off the runway, we lost track of how many girls sported pastel pink coats and rosy accessories. In our book, pink looks pretty all year round. This spring, we’ll be wearing the hue head-to-toe for a sweet-meets-sophisticated look—e.g., a bubblegum jumpsuit with patent kitten heels—or in small doses with a flushed lip or translucent sunnies. Shop our favorite pink pieces from Valentino, Ray-Ban, Catherine Malandrino, and more, below.

Michelle Campbell: From TV Hooker to Jewelry Darling

-------

Campbell

California native Michelle Campbell Mason was an actress and model in a previous life—her first break was on CSI, as a hooker with good intentions who meets a gruesome fate. (“My parents loved that one,” she laughed.)

Things slowed down at one point, Mason said, and she started to lose it. But after inheriting a bunch of jewelry from her grandmother, she picked up a pencil and began to sketch. “They were a little too antique to wear, so I wanted to create something that would complement them, something a little more clean and to the point,” she explains.

Three years on, Campbell’s floating rings and major cuffs have made waves everywhere from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus to Shopbop.com. This fall, Campbell is taking her first step into fine jewelry with a collection that builds on her signature floaty, classic modernism. Her massive honeycomb cuff was the inspiration for a number of new styles, while a darker-than-usual theme in black and white diamonds on white gold conveys an ongoing fascination with architecture, particularly what she finds in her new home base, New York. “This is meant to play off the contemporary [pieces],” she noted. “We all wear fine jewelry—just not by itself. It’s really clean, easy to pile on and layer,” she explained. And that, in a nutshell, is how crime TV’s loss became fashion’s gain.

Wilfredo Rosado Fall 2013

-------


Label: Wilfredo Rosado

Need to Know: After years of working with Giorgio Armani, Wilfredo Rosado realized his dream was to launch his own fine jewelry collection. And in 2011, he did just that. Top international retailers like Bergdorf Goodman and Lane Crawford quickly snatched up his unique pieces. His cameos were an instant success, Gwyneth Paltrow wore his pink feather and diamond earrings to the 2011 Grammys, and ever since debuting his first collection, editors and buyers alike have championed his extravagant, eccentric take on diamonds.

When asked about his Fall ’13 collection, Rosado told Style.com that he has always been a fan of the Smoke series of burned furniture by the Dutch designer Maarten Baas. He’s fascinated by the idea of creating high-luxury pieces and treating them as common, non-precious objects. You can’t get much more precious than 18-karat gold set with sapphires, diamonds, and emeralds. But for Fall, Rosado inlaid his decadent wares with burned wood. He tells us they’re meant to be worn as everyday accessories.

He Says: “Should I call this collection ‘HOT’? I just want women—or men, for that matter—to look and feel cool wearing it, without feeling like they’re wearing the family jewels!”

Dear Santa, Please Bring Me…A Very Long Letter?

-------

Last night’s annual tree-lighting at Rockefeller Center was a mob scene, but it wasn’t the evening’s only throng. Just down the street, shoppers, designers, and fashion fixtures like Kate Bosworth, Prabal Gurung and Karlie Kloss came together to toast the launch of Target, Neiman Marcus, and the CFDA’s collaborative holiday collection—and to do a little pre-shopping. A set of highball glasses designed by Joseph Altuzarra, and Christmas ornaments by Jason Wu seemed to be particularly hot-ticket items, and some designers appeared to have had their own lists in mind when creating their items: Both the duos behind Marchesa and Rag & Bone made outfits for their children. But what were they hoping for themselves? Click here for a slideshow of shoppers roaming the racks, and read on below to find out who’s stockpiling Jet-Set Travel and Peruvian liquor, and who’s hoping to find a Ferrari parked under their tree.

At 50, Right On Target

-------

Target was toasting its 50 years in business in New York last night, but it was not its history that served as the night’s centerpiece. Instead, the retailer and its party guests focused on Christmas future with last night’s unveiling of the Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday collection lookbook, featuring an impressive roster of 24 CFDA designers including Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, and Band of Outsiders. “I’m so honored to participate,” said Eddie Borgo at the party on West 22nd Street. “This is such a new, innovative way to connect consumers to brands that may seem otherwise unattainable.” In addition to Borgo’s accent box and letter opener offerings, gifting options from Altuzarra, Brian Atwood, and Rag & Bone inspired partygoers to engage in a debate of the non-presidential variety—favorite for-Target designer.

“Jason Wu, no contest,” declared Harley Viera-Newton from the turntables, kicking off the festivities before Alicia Keys treated attendees to an a cappella performance. DJ Brendan Fallis made an equally strong case for another candidate. “I’m completely partial to the Thom Browne blazer. [Thom] is dressing me for the Apollo benefit; I just can’t get enough of his stuff right now,” he told Style.com. Interior designer and author Nate Berkus (celebrating the same-day release of his home decor book The Things That Matter and whose own 150-piece Target collection launches October 21) vehemently agreed. “Thom wins by a landslide. I’m only 5′ 8″ and love that his clothes actually fit me,” said Berkus.

Starting a whole new debate, actress Naomi Watts (pictured) cast her votes for future collaborators. “I would love to see my friend Stella McCartney, Isabel Marant, or Helmut Lang do a little something.” #Don’tWeAll. Until then, the limited-edition collection from the current lineup of designers for Target + Neiman Marcus will be on offer starting December 1 at all Target and Neiman Marcus stores.
