Few talks about Maxi Skirt:

I don't have a maxi skirt, but I recently unearthed a vintage maxi dress from my mum's wardrobe and I finally plucked up the courage to wear it out yesterday (I'm very small, about 5'3", so I've always felt that a maxi would swamp me) and I got loads of compliments. I feel like I've been converted to the maxi dress/skirt trend and I am hoping to add a maxi skirt or two to my vwardrobe in the near future. So, YES, therawpower, you can pull it off! I'm shorter than you and I can pull it off. You just need to get the right fit for your body shape.

to all the shorties: maxi skirts + high waists (a la bonbonenata) are perfection! i LOVE long skirts. they sure beat all the butt-grazing minis that are out there.

SPACECAT Designs Deepfold & Kino Shorts for Yoga

The environmentally conscious sportswear company SPACECAT INC introduces its unique and versatile line of shorts for women, taking sports activities to new levels of fun, comfort and sexiness. Owner, Japanese clothing designer Yumi Miyanishi, and internationally known Certified Ashtanga Yoga teacher Kino Macgregor united forces to create a new type of yoga wear called the Deepfold and the Kino Shorts, thus reinventing the common-place sports garment often seen at yoga studios and elsewhere.

Says Macgregor: “I love to wear shorts while I practice Ashtanga Yoga, and it has helped me develop much more inner strength. Instead of relying on the fabric to prevent slipping I have to find the strength from within. I also love bright colors and fun patterns, and I wear these colorful shorts so often that people asked me if I would one day make my own. So now I am happy to introduce these fun Yoga shorts in two styles designed by SPACECAT.”

They are perfect for yoga, skateboarding, rollerblading, running, biking, working out at the gym and even sexy new trends like pole dancing. SPACECAT uses technologically advanced textiles, such as the moisture-wicking Supplex, which feels as soft as cotton but prevents stickiness during perspiration, and a high-performance lining called Coolmax for faster drying and a cooling effect during the activities of today’s women.

Today At The American Apparel Cologne Warehouse Sale...

Actually I'd call it a warehouse road show sale. After stops in London, Amsterdam and Berlin, now it's Cologne's turn. I must say, I was never that crazy about the leotard aerobic clad look that was happening a few years ago, but occasionally I do buy stuff at AA, mostly sweatshirts and hoodies. Their leggings are quite good, too. As Cologne is really close to Düsseldorf, I thought I'd pay it a visit. AA hired one of Colognes' biggest venues for this "event". Normally you'd go to the Palladium to see bands like The Strokes and Bloc Party perform, but today it was a clothes gig. Via Facebook AA anoounced this: 

"We'll have tens of thousands of American Apparel garments at up to 75% off. Our previous events this year have been attended by thousands of people who bring home bags and bags of great pieces at great prices. Inventory will be constantly replenished all day, every day, throughout the sale but get there early! RSVP to this event page to receive updates, tips, and be the first to know when new styles arrive!"
Up to 75% off, well this was sometimes the case, but only for the most unattractive apparel, and a lot of the garments were actually quite faulty or in colours I would never consider. I had a California fleece track hoodie in mind, but only pink and lilac and lots of faulty ones were left.
People walking away with bags and bags of pieces, crowds, cews? Where were they? Did I miss them? There were some people about, but most of them actually made up an unbelievably huge crowd of staff and security wandering around. Makes me wonder if this event is actually paying off for AA.
That said, I did find a quite nice sweater reduced from 50 to 27 Euros, so I made my way into the catacombs to pay for it. When I got downstairs, about 20 heads plus security turned towards me, standing behind 10 extra set up cash desks. None of them had anything to do. It felt like they had been waiting for me. I could only pay cash, and it took 4 attempts until they had found the proper barcode, with a "minder" instructing and watching the staff. All in all a very strange experience, I must say. Somehow, I am under the impression that it's going downhill for AA. Fashion has moved on, and it seems AA hasn't realized that yet. Looks to me like this road show sale is a huge sell off!

Me? I've been a good girl!

Christmas is not only the season of goodwill and giving, it's also the season of tacky Christmas decorations! I don't know about you, but that Angel standing in front of Mr. Santa looks a bit like Chucky with a wig on! Have a great weekend!

Cambodia’s Garment, Textile Exports on Possitive

A positive trend has been witnessed in garment and textile exports from Cambodia, till October this year. The Kingdom’s garment and textile exports, with a year-on-year rise of over 30 percent equalling to US$ 880 million, surged to US$ 3.47 billion, the Ministry of Commerce figures revealed.

As stated by the Ministry officials, garments continue to be in demand in the European Union and in the United States in spite of the two western economies being confronted with economic downturn and sovereign debt crisis. Being low-priced is a key factor which has helped in sustenance of the Kingdom’s garment and textiles industry.

Kong Putheara, Director of the Commerce Ministry’s Department of Statistics said the Kingdom’s garment and textile industry caters to the needs of ordinary low and medium income group people, and added that though earnings of people in this class was slightly hit by the debt crisis, the low-cost of products have helped to sustain the buying power of this class.

Li-Ning and C&A going ‘toxic-free’

Greenpeace welcomed the 'Joint Roadmap' (1) published by international clothing companies Adidas, H&M, Nike and Puma, as an important step towards the elimination of all releases of hazardous substances from the brands' supply chains and products by 2020. Greenpeace also welcomed moves by fast-fashion retailer C&A and Chinese sportswear brand Li-Ning, whose individual 'Detox' commitments (2) allowed for their credible participation in the Roadmap.

"Now that fashion leaders have sketched out their designs for a toxic-free future, they need to transform these into ready-to-wear collections that will bring about large-scale change in the fashion sector," commented Martin Hojsik, Detox Campaign Coordinator at Greenpeace International.

The Joint Roadmap outlines how the companies will deliver against their 'Detox' commitments (3) and includes details on the development of tools to monitor the release of hazardous chemicals, green chemistry initiatives and pilot projects for the elimination of certain chemicals. However, Greenpeace is challenging all of the companies to respond with more urgency to the problem of toxic water pollution, by publishing shorter and more concrete timelines for the elimination of the most hazardous chemicals (4).

ASOS 15,65 €
VERDEL £202.21
ASOS 19,57 €

Anat Fritz 159,00 €
Anat Fritz 159,00 €

With temperatures gradually decreasing, I've been thinking of what to wear on my head this winter, because I am not a person who can go out in below zero temps without a protected head. I major freeze!  A little bored of normal knitted hats and beanies, I like the wool and felt fedoras, but they don't really keep my ears warm. I am quite liking the turban trend though, it is a subtle but fashionable alternative, and I spotted some fabulous knitted ones at Asos, Verdel and Anat Fritz. There are lots of varieties and colours and I think I might try one of them. The Asos Turbans are quite inexpensive so you could get them in different colours. The one from Verdel is made of 100% cashmere, and the Anat Fritz Turbans are handmade.

Fashion Talk - Is Belts Necessity or Fashion?

Belts are the important part of men clothing, in past few decades belts become crucial part of women clothing as well. From the start of 20th century when men start using trousers belts were generally used. Before that belts were used by military men only. Belts were used to give the wearer trim figure and opens the soldiers chest wide.

Belts have been used by men and women since the Bronze Age. The main purpose of belts is to hold the cloth with the waist, but in the world of fashion, the need of a person made with a new appearance and designs. Similarly some of the women belts are designed only for great look. It has become very significant part of our clothing, now a day people use belts according to the fashion and its very stylish these days. Belts fashion varies for men and women. Women belts have an open range of making stuffs and designs, Women Belts may be made of leather or Elastic belt. Now both males and females are more unease about belts these days in their clothing. Since 19th century to world war1 belts decorative as well as use as the part of the uniform like in army uniforms, police officers uniform etc.

In a nut shell, Belts Necessity or Fashion, it is an important part of men or women clothing. We might not say Belts Necessity or Fashion, but Belts Necessity and Fashion.

Marc Jacobs' Entire S/S 2012 Collection Stolen In Transit

Marc Jacobs s/s 2012
Marc Jacobs s/s 2012

Marc Jacobs may now officially be called a "fashion victim". Last night CNN reported that Marc Jacobs's entire s/s 2012 collection had been stolen of a train in transit from Paris to London. The collection included 46 looks of yet to be produced samples and was on its way to a European press day in London that had to be called off. Now, who knicked it? Is it already on its way to be mass produced in some factory far away or could this even be a publicity stunt? Speculations are running wild...

H&M Designer Collaboration Ramble

Versace for H&M
Versace for H&M

Getting excited about the Versace for H&M collection? I like colour, but I guess you have to be a proper Versace girl to get all excited about this one, with all due respect to hugely creative Donatella Versace, who is running an empire and seems a very kind person. However, there was one dress that caught my attention, namely the blue silk figure-hugging pinafore dress. Yes, it's not all loud and kitschy and I reckon this one is going to be a hit!
The Last collaboration I personally got really excited about was Stella McCartney. It was H&M's second collabo with a designer after Karl Lagerfeld (the one where sizing only went up to a 38 (UK10), because he didn't want to see "big" people in his designs). I remember going to H&M in my lunchbreak to check out the collection - it was mayhem! The shopfloor was a battlefield. People were raking in the stuff regardless of size and item, only to sell them on ebay for more than double the price. The stuff was all over the place. My pick from the floor from the collection was a fabulous 100% Wool Blazer, nipped in at the waist with a belt and a stand up Mao collar. It's such a great quality and fit, I am wearing it to this day! Then last year, there was Sonia Rykiel. One of my favourite French Designers, who always manages to make quirky Parisian wearable clothes and fun knits. No more battles on the shopfloor in this case, as you could check out and buy the collection online. 
Actually, I haven't bought anything from these collaborations for a long time. It was exciting in the beginning, but it's wearing off now. There are others that I find more interesting, like the J+ for Uniqlo collection, that is sadly coming to an end. And I am curious, as to how Mary Katrantzou's designs for Topshop will translate to a mass market next year!

Who would you like to see collaborate with H&M in future?

For everyone else, H&M is surprisingly doing another collaboraitis collaboration, slightly on the rougher side, with costume designer Trish Summerville, who was responsible for the designs in Stieg Larsons "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo". Inspired by antihero Lisbeth Salander, the collection features leather biker jackets and pants, casual tops and accessoires and will be available in the Divided departments from December 14th. I guess, there is no need to go for the whole bikerchic look as in the advertisement, but if you pick a jacket or a pair of pants alone, then I think there might be some nice pieces to team with the rest of your wardrobe.
