Why The $195 Balenciaga Scrunchie Is Peak 2017

00-story-scrunchies
Is a $195 scrunchie worth it? Well, that’s how much the thick hair band from Balenciaga’s Resort 2018 collection costs—shipping not included. Its steep price tag is comparable to that of a Vetements hoodie, which comes at a whopping $885—a triple-digit number that could also get you a 1999 Lincoln Town Car with 300,000 miles on it, or nearly 90 “Blue Light Special” hoodies at $10 a pop. Lately, talking about ordinary items with extraordinary price tags has begun to feel a bit like Passover seder, where the first question at the table is: “Why is this night different than other nights?” In fashion terms that translates to: “Why is this item different from all other items?” In the case of this particular electric-blue...

These Boots Were Made For Walking (and Dancing) Through Party Season

00-story-party-dresses-boots
Holiday season is nearly upon us. Bring on the whirlwind of vivid prints, sparkling sequins, and all-around festive cocktail attire! As for the footnote: In an unlikely turn of events, we’re welcoming the reimagined ankle boot into the merry mix. Sure, it’s not the first time boots have worked the party circuit—we’ve had our share of sky- and thigh-high boots creeping up on the catwalk as of late—but this season’s quirky, eclectic iterations with unrivaled aesthetics are more than ready to hit the dance floor while making a modern evening statement. Balenciaga’s space-age silver booties, which come pointed and peaked mid-shin, perfectly offset a proper off-the-shoulder velvet dress, while Manolo Blahnik’s silk and satin stilettos draw the eye downward with a hint...

5 Monochromatic Looks To Steal This Season

dior-jade-crop-301r-lede-1511897230

While it’s true that a power suit or the perfect pair of jeans can change your life, occasionally it’s an accessory that makes the biggest impact. Case in point: a colorful watch. A classic timepiece may conjure up images of black bands and silver faces, but fashion’s current love affair with bold prints and dynamic hues has paved the way for a fresh approach. We took inspiration from candy-colored timepieces to create five fresh monochrome moments.

The Webster Brings Siz Stories Of Chic To NYC

543a5247-1510956329

Winter looms around the corner for New York, but founder of The Webster Laure Hériard Dubreuil is bringing a little Miami warmth to the Big Apple, opening a new location of the luxury boutique in a stunning SoHo location.
The shop has rebuilt an entire building at 29 Greene Street, creating six floors from scratch with 98 designer labels for men and women. Custom furnishings and décor—including wallpapers from the 1920s and ‘30s—help accentuate the charm of the site, which was constructed in 1878 until it burnt down years ago. The result is incredibly opulent—the intricate patterns and lush textures throughout the new store are accentuated by the moody lighting and bright open windows.

It-label Mansur Gavriel has been expanding slowly for the past few seasons.

The new collection features three wallet sizes and a cardholder in 11 different colors that play to Mansur Gavriel’s established aesthetic. The designs are minimalist, and are rendered in a palette of dusty feminine hues like mustard and rose.
“The small leather good collection is a natural extension of the handbag collection,” said Rachel and Floriana. “It's something we've been waiting a long time to present.”
