MadeMe Fall 2010 Collection

fall2010_mademe01Here it is! The long awaited MadeMe Fall 2010 COLLECTION!!! Yes, for reals.

Inspired by 80’s and early 90’s music, fashion, and New York City’s nightlife, MadeMe’s done it again ladies and gents.  With a long awaited Fall 2010 Collection that’s packed full of edge, style and confidence, this season is nothing short of fun and sexy - trust me.

Shot by Brooke Nipar and Sarah McColgan, the look book is a collaborative of notable women, featuring the likes of Nicole & Natalie of Nina Sky, Kim Ann Foxman of Hercules and Love Affair, Maluca Mala, Lady Miss Kier of Dee-Lite, and muse Victoria Brito.  How can you go wrong with that lineup? Each female chose pieces from the line to represent their own signature style. The result is remarkable, and even though we had no SS10 Collection, I am glad MadeMe‘s redeemed themselves…I’m in love.

This season offers versatility and style with new additions - just in time for school of course - everything from shoulder tote bags with interior laptop pockets, to low-rise faux black leather pants, to the Paradise Tee, paying tribute to the famed 1980’s “Paradise Garage” club.  And let’s not forget MadeMe’s signature motorcycle jacket, which is now available in black and a new bold tonal gray leopard pattern! My personal favorites would have to be the new military parka, the gray graphic sweater, leather jacket, XO cap….okay wait - I want all of them!

Don’t forget to download the new mixtape Strike a Pose 4 by NI** SKY and peep the video:

Class is Back in Session

Kanye West

He’s dropped out of college, he re-enrolled and registered late, he finally graduated. Whats next for the Louis Vuitton Don? The last we heard from Kanye West was him making an ass of himself and embarrassing the poo out of Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. The guy was clearly off his rocker and finally had a reason to take a long overdue hibernation.

Now, hes back in a major way and his cult following is larger than ever. Kanye is known for raw emotion, arrogant punchlines, and a verbal swagger that can’t be duplicated. He’s one of the few artists than can shame you on your own track and laugh in your face about it. Quite honestly, all of his albums have been classics. That’s a feat accomplished by few. In recent weeks hes released two beastly tracks and a ‘moving painting’ music video. What hasn’t he done?

The Twitter blast Kanye put out on the premiere day of the ’Power’ video mentioned a ‘moving painting.’ I’m pretty sure nobody expected the video the be a literal translation of the tweet. We were wrong.

The ‘Monster’ track and ‘Power’ video were all over the net 24 hours ago, but now they’re harder to find than Waldo. Apparently the record label snatched them off  YouTube faster than you can say piracy. ’Monster’ featured Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Bon Iver, and Nicki Minaj. I’m telling you, you’ve got to hear this.

I feel like a virgin boy looking at his first pair of boobs. I’m giddy with excitement for this next album. Right now Mr. West is ‘bouncing a couple of titles around’ for his 5th studio album. The two reported title possibilities are ‘Good Ass Job’ and ‘Dark Twisted Fantasy.’ Who knows? Kanye is so unpredictable and scatterbrained. I’m just glad hes back to being the international a-hole.

Manicure Must-Haves For Fall 2010

Ginger + Liz Not On The First Date and Blowin' Money Fast

Ginger + Liz Not On The First Date and Blowin' Money Fast

This year’s lineup of Fall colors is a far cry from well, “Fall”. With Autumn typically spawning a hodgepodge of gunmetals and predictable, “vampy” reds, the palette of 2010 is bold, beautiful, and BRIGHT. Ranging from  Ginger + Liz Blowin’ Money Fast (a dark metallic teal) to Barielle Style in Argyle collection (a warm array of browns, plums, and golds), polish brands are offering up an assortment of “anything goes”; the perfect contrast to the season’s luxurious fabrics and leathers (black, black, and more black!)

Essie Fall Into Fashion 2010

Essie Fall Into Fashion 2010

Essie‘s Fall Into Fashion collection is inspired by trends spotted on the season’s runways. According to Essie Weingarten (Founder and President of Essie): “This fall, designers are mixing it up, combining sheer fabric with leather, along with lingerie as outer wear in deep, muted tones and bold color palettes which is very alluring. I drew inspiration from the range of elegant, sanguine hues and camouflage tones.”
