Accessory of the Week: Westwood Pumps

From VIVIENNE WESTWOOD'S highly influential and highly collectible early 90's collection where Naomi Campbell notoriously fell, come these amazing black patent leather elevated court heel platform shoes. Fifteen years later and these shoes still receive heavy editorial rotation and have even had their time in highly-respected museums. They are just utterly inspiring and jaw-dropping and downright empowering with that outrageous 6 inch heel.

Play off the tarty/retro rock-a-billy vibe and bring the look back dowtown by maybe pairing them with some textured dark tights, baggy cut-off light denim shorts and a slinky layered cardigan.

Celebrate the Witty Humor of MOSCHINO at Vnyc

We may not be into the vicious heat of Nyc summers, but one thing is for sure, we at Vnyc, love re-directing our look! And with spring & summer comes a lighter sense of humor and ease. Now is the time to turn your back to black and jump at the chance to go wild with whimsical prints and pieces in an overall, not so serious attitude.
At the forefront of our favorite recent finds are four fantastically irreverent, charismatic and imaginative deluxe Moschino pieces that celebrate the genuine goals of Franco Moschino himself. The genius of Moschino's vision was the fact that he created these audacious looks for the luxury market while at the same time poking fun at high-end fashion's self-entitled seriousness.
So why not chill-out & relax a little in these white satin Monopoly-themed "Moschinopoly" print logo pants that have a fantastic high-waist.
Or bring out the hippie in you as seen through the quirky eye of the early 90's with these heart covered flares or these great political pop-print skinny pants.

And if you are looking for a beautifully tailored LBD, think about this chic "flow chart" number with it's well crafted asymmetrical panels and delicate number detailing. It's witty, well-implemented concept pushes it far from the stiff, vapid cocktail frocks you see today.
These four pieces touch on all of the great Moschino hallmarks and remind us of why & how much we truly adore this brand!

Luxe Boho Focus for Spring...

CHLOE Purple Floral Silk Beaded Boho Fishtail Dress
We were really impressed with the super-luxe left-bank boho Pre-Fall collection from CHLOE and have been on a mad hunt for classic representations of Chloe at it's best boho moments.

From one of Stella McCartney's final collections at CHLOE comes this beautiful and super-luxe soft purple water-color floral fishtail mermaid dress that is covered with random sequins, beads and cream & grey 3-d tulle circle blooms. The top half of the dress is seductively fitted while it moves on to a flirty a-line shape. The thin straps have hanging triangular cut ruffle panels, which with the drapey hem, gives this classic muted luxe-hippie print a genius stylistic flamenco vibe.
