STYLESTUDIOLIVE CAPSULE. THE SIMPLICITY EDIT.

By. Allyson Longshore

The Simplicity Edit is one of my all time favorites and one that I am proud to say I have mastered though personal experience. Considering the amount of time that I spend traveling and packing suitcases this has become my personal daily practice and a true life saver.  Consider this the remedy for the infamous "I have nothing to wear" syndrome.  We are all guilty of it.  A curated capsule collection is the first step to building a timeless and forever wardrobe centered around lux classics.  Before you splurge on that embroidered and embellished Valentino leather trench coat this season please ask yourself.. 

DO I HAVE ALL QUALITY FALL/WINTER WARDROBE ESSENTIALS COVERED FOR THE SEASON?

Here are my 4 ground rules for a fully functional capsule wardrobe!

1. Quality Over Quantity:

When building the base for a fully functional wardrobe it is important to focus on purchasing items that you NEED and only quality items.

2. Purposeful Choices:

The concept of a capsule wardrobe is to only include quality items that will work together in multiple ways, creating multiple different looks with basic luxury essentials.

3. Color Edit:

Choose items that have a neutral color palette; black, white, ivory, grey, and nude.  No prints or hyper embellishment.  

4. Keep your eye on the prize:

Staying focused on building your base wardrobe is crucial. All fashion investments must be made towards completing your capsule. 

Lets start with the STYLESTUDIOLIVE CAPSULE master list;

1. Lux cashmere sweaters;  Black. Ivory. In various neck styles. V-neck. Crew. Turtleneck. 

2. Current season denim options.  Dark wash. Black. Distressed. Narrow leg. Wide leg. Skinny leg.

MARCO DE VINCENZO BOOTS

These slick black leather ankle boots underpinned a host of looks on Marco de Vincenzo's AW16 runway. They're moulded in Italy to an almond-toe shape that's spliced with a velvet-covered high block heel, and finished with a cascade of pretty black and peach bows at the back – a playful nod to this season's overtly feminine trend. The most modern way to wear them? With richly textured trousers and midi skirts. 

THE ULTIMATE GUCCI DRESS

A hibiscus red dress with a beautiful array of crystals, glass pearls and beads that decorate the neckline mimicking a necklace. The intricate ruffles on the shoulders give the top an exaggerated feel which is balanced by the contrast colors on the skirt portion.

RODARTE SPRING 2016

Kate and Laura Mulleavy are in their own world. They always have been, dreaming away out there in California, where their operation is cloaked in a bit of mystery, but it’s becoming an increasingly love-it-or-leave-it scenario.

Rodarte's spring collection was inspired by poets, not one in particular, though Kate named Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Emily Dickinson backstage after the show. “It was a more romantic interpretation of what a poet would mean in our world,” she said. In that realm, the air is still thick with Seventies and Eighties references, such as a teal disco beaded suit worn with a paisley ruffle and tie-neck blouse, lavender and blue Mongolian shrugs and dance-hall peasant dresses with velvet blouson sleeves, folksy bodices and lace skirts that looked like labors of love assembled at the kitchen table.
 


Those who have lost patience with the Mulleavys’ homespun vintage fantasies could excavate moments of elevated beauty beneath the Stevie Nicks scarves, floral hair adornment, chandelier earrings, lace tights and metallic dancing shoes. A black lace dress with a gently gathered high collar and lightly feathered hem captured tasteful romantic poetry. An enchanting black-and-white lace gown with cascade shoulders closed the show on a high.



Indisputably niche, Rodarte’s original fan base has been rooting for them to make good on their potential. At this point, that would require a shoe, a bag, a substantial commercially compelling something to buy into. The Mulleavys saythey’re interested in such pursuits, but it’s been a slow process. Meanwhile, their world is evolving in other directions, like their first feature film.

MARC JACOBS SPRING 2016

There was a lot going on last week at the Marc Jacobs‘ runway show at the Ziegfeld theatre! Leave it to Marc to end fashion week with a bang. Guests arrived at the historic Ziegfeld theater to a marquee sign that read “ONE NIGHT ONLY MARC JACOBS” with the hashtag #MARCJACOBSPREMIERE. The models took an escalator, walked through the lobby, concession area, and into the main theater where many seats were taken out to create the runways. Before their runway entrance, models posed against a step and repeat for trotting down the catwalk. Before the show editors were given free popcorn, soda, and candy and a special t-shirts to celebrate the event. Guests received a Playbill that included a quiz on Marc, the history of the Ziegfeld Theater and ads for Marc Jacobs Beauty and BookMarc.

 

 

To say that Marc Jacobs marches to the beat of his own drum would be putting it mildly. An orchestra played in the background as an array of top models walked the runway (Plus! Beth Ditto) including Karen ElsonBella HadidAlex WekJoan SmallsJamie BochertAnna ClevelandAdriana LimaBinx Walton, and the busiest model of the season, Lineisy Montero. There were no 90s-inspired looks on this runway, perhaps because that era is so inherently Marc’s. The show was all about faded American glam. Some of the models looked like washed up starlets from a bygone era. The Ziegfeld Theater is the longest surviving single-screen theater in America, thus fitting in with the evening’s theme. The building was built in 1969, but was based on the original which operated from 1927 to 1966. The looks included 40s style evening gowns, Americana themed pieces like a pair of jeans sewn to look like the American flag and high school letterman jackets, cowgirl fringe, sparkly pencil skirts, vintage inspired theater usher uniforms, and capes and skirts featuring Janet Leigh’s screaming visage. It was quite a spectacle, the likes of which the Ziegfeld Theater probably hasn’t seen in quite some time and it looked unlike anything else on the runways this season.

So what starlets came out to celebrate this homage to the bygone days of American theater? Sofia CoppolaSandra BernhardDianna Argon, and the queen of them all, Bette Midler. Now we’ll just have to see which leading ladies will be stepping out onto red carpets in Marc Jacobs in the upcoming awards season. Karen Elson’s chiffon halter dress should certainly have its moment and we’d love to see someone bold enough to rock the Janet Leigh cape.

JAY GODFREY SPRING 2016

Coming from the words of designer Jay Godfrey himself, “sensual” and “architectural” are the two terms that would best describe the spring-summer 2016 collection. As an artist, one might say that the goal for a piece of art must always involve some act of transmission. This collection is Godfrey’s work of art and it enabled him to transmit elegance and character through his all-white designs.

STYLESTUDIO TOP THREE LEATHER MOTO JACKETS

A question that we are asked on a daily basis is.... "Leather jackets......... There are so many, whats your favorite fit/cut/style????"  We are constantly sending out STYLESTUDIO BOXES this time of year full of the seasons sickest leather jackets and pants.  Through our Personal Concierge Shopping/Styling Services, you too can have your favorite new leather moto on your doorstep as soon as tomorrow... WHATTTT!?!?! 

Here are our top three picks for the season; 

1. ACNE STUDIOS- A classic super edgy moto jacket with major baddassery vibes. If you want something that screams rock and roll then this is your baby.  Also the perfect starter moto jacket for those of you that are just starting to build a leather collection. 

2. RICK OWENS- The construction of this jacket is flawless and it is lined with fine lambswool that isn't overly cumbersome with minimal hardware.  Extra long sleeves for that rough and tough yet chic woman that wants something a bit more sophisticated with edge.

3. BALMAIN- This one is a winner for the collector that isn't afraid to make a splurge on a true piece of lux high fashion.  This jacket fits like a glove and has a structured severe shoulder that demands attention. A conversation starter simply by the complex design and leather quality and detailed hardware.

THE ANATOMY OF MINIMALIST STYLE

 

When we think of minimalist fashion, the following terms come to mind: neutral colors, classic lines, solid fabrics, and timeless silhouettes. Polka Dots? Poof. Houndstooth? Gone. Leopard? Lose it. Minimalist fashion is the hottest new thing on the runway, and is a major departure from the bejeweled and bedazzled styles of the past few years. This style allows the emphasis to be on the person wearing the garments, not the clothes themselves.

Traditional minimalist outfits are generally either black and/or white but can sometimes involve muted colors (but never patterns). A great example of minimalist style is a perfectly tailored black wool jumpsuit with a tailored black suit jacket. Another example of this style would be a structured white A-line tank dress with classic black leather booties – think simple, shaped, and strong.

Minimalism is a style that has been around for a few decades, but became strongest in the 1980’s. Remember those Calvin Klein commercials with white t-shirts and tailored black pants? This is a classic example of minimalism. The widely marketed fashion giant The Gap also championed this movement by promoting the crisp white tailored shirt and straight-legged ‘Audrey Hepburn’ pants in plain black. Today, designers like Alexander Wang and Chanel as well as ready-to-wear outlets like H&M and Uniqlo are paving the way to bring minimalism to the masses.

The ‘little black dress,’ or LBD as it is colloquially known, is a staple of the minimalist’s wardrobe. In fact, all black everything is a staple of the minimalist’s wardrobe! You can avoid this style from looking gothic by keeping makeup simple and neutral. A simple, light eyeliner and natural lip is a sophisticated way to bring this fashion philosophy into your beauty routine. Hair should be plain yet polished, usually slicked back into a ponytail or neat low bun.

In step with the aesthetic, keep your shoe choice very plain yet modern – and almost always black leather. A sandal, chunky-heeled pump, or plain flat are consistent options. Oh – and don’t forget to put away the flashy jewelry. Minimalists are of course quite simple when it comes to accouterments; The most that one should wear would be a simple, personal detail like a wedding ring or dainty necklace in silver or gold.

The easiest way to ease into minimalist style is to start by color blocking. Don’t like the idea of wearing all black? Break up the noir with some white – try a tailored white oxford shirt with a classic black pencil skirt. Once you’ve nailed this classic feel, work into an all-white or all-black outfit. You will feel empowered with the straightforward nature of your look!

When it comes down to it, simplicity is key for minimalists. Two main influencers from two different generations, Audrey Hepburn and Victoria Beckham, highlight the timelessness of this style. When you make wise investments into beautiful, well-made pieces, these minimalist options will never fall out of favor.



NYFW GIVENCHY SHOW GOES PUBLIC

This New York Fashion Week, Riccardo Tisci’s collection for Givenchy is a public affair. On September 11th, he will show the collection before a crowd of the usual suspects, but also 1,200 members of the general public, according to a report from WWD. The brand is working with the City of New York on the project, and 820 of the tickets will be offered on a first-come basis to registrants on givenchyNYFW15.com. The URL was announced on Givenchy’s, NYCgo’s, the CFDA’s, and KCD’s social media outlets this morning, and tickets will be available to the public at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

A set of 280 tickets has been reserved for students and faculty at FIT, Parsons, Pratt Institute, and the High School for Fashion Industries, while 100 tickets will be given to residents who live nearby the still undisclosed venue.

This season’s show will be followed by a party to celebrate the French house’s new 5,000-square-foot boutique designed by Tisci, located at 747 Madison Avenue and 65th Street. He also announced that he would be collaborating with his longtime friend Marina Abramovic, who will help art direct the show. “Usually Riccardo’s shows are very sleek, with a lot of models but very, very focused,” Givenchy’s CEO Philippe Fortunato told WWD. “This time, it’s going to be very generous.”
