80's MICHAEL KORS White Mod Cut-Out Dress

Up for grabs is this fantastic early MICHAEL KORS 80's white linen dress that has an oval cut-out around the waist giving the dress a strong MOD, minimal and even urban twist. The cut-out also makes it great for year-round layering since from the front it looks like two separate pieces and it also makes it a great summer dress.

Oh my Goude, oh so Good!

Jean-Paul Goude has always been a great artist for us to reference in terms of styling and for our buys themselves. These two videos for French denim label Lee Cooper from 1983 are great examples of his visionary work with their light-hearted-ness, completely joyful imagery and goofy Euro meets Afro vibe.

Kiki De Montparnasse Black Silk Key-Hole Tunic

From luxe lingerie house KIKI DE MONTPARNASSE comes this sexy 40's inspired black silk tunic-length hooded top that is so quietly dramatic with its starlet/pin-up appeal. It has a single-button key-hole closure at the neck and with the hood up, to us, just screams Edie Bouvier from Grey Gardens.

Helmut Lang Frothy Sheer Crinoline Skirt

From HELMUT LANG comes this frothy three-layer sheer organza skirt that has a flirty, breezy yet modern appeal , not to mention a completely clean, crisp minimal feeling to it. The outer layer is composed of a pleated silk chiffon while the middle layer is a stiff, yet lightweight molded techno nylon crinoline to give the a-line cut a boxier, 3-D shape. The inner layer is composed of a tighter fitting gauze fabric for comfort. Use its classic shape to make it look sweet & precious or juxtapose it with a totally saturated pop color and layers of neon Tom Binns chains.

Rodarte Spring 2009

As New York fashion week winded down, there was of course, a lot of disappointment, however, Rodarte, was one of the few to enthrall us. Once again the Mulleavy sister's developed a beautiful, exquisite and gorgeously constructed collection for Spring/Summer 2009. We think they are one of the strongest, most exciting new American labels-literally untouchable!
