Everlane: New concept of luxury e-tailing

December 11, 2012

By cutting out the middleman, the budding luxury clothing design and manufacturing company offers high-quality products at unconventional prices.  The company started by producing a luxurious version of the classic t-shirt for just $15.  It has now evolved its product offerings to silk blouses, wool scarves and backpacks.  How does Everlane achieve such prices?  See the value chain below:

The Curator, Tastemaker, Style Influencer ...

November 27, 2012

The curator, tastemaker, style influencer, fashion ambassador and celebrity; They are changing the scene of online shopping.  I see one consistent trend being the use of curators in recommending products. Marketing research has shown that we as consumers like recommendations from people we know and/or admire and are more inclined to shop these suggestions.  So is the curator the new online marketing strategy of today as was the flash-sale of previous years?  Below are four unique online websites that have adopted the curator-based business model.

AHAlife is an online discovery and shopping platform that offers unique handpicked products by the likes of Donna Karan, Daniel Boulud, Tina Brown and Tim Gunn.  

The Coveteur offers a look into the closets of tastemakers, celebrities and fashion elite with the ability to actually shop pieces from their closets.

Vaunte recently launched and is also offering up fashionable closets by redesigning the world of online luxury consignment shopping.

The Cools is a social network and an e-commerce site.  Its tastemakers include Erin Fetherston, Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, and Agyness Deyn.

Black on black plus Valentino

November 5, 2012

(Balenciaga coat, Rag & Bone jeans, Christian Louboutin heels, Valentino bag, Ray-Ban sunglasses)

Color is all over the runways these days but I'm still partial to an all black outfit.  The weather in London changed significantly last week and its time to bring out the coats.  This is one of my favorites: leather-trimmed and double-breasted.  Styled with a pair of killer pumps and F/W '12 studded Valentino bag and I'm ready to brave the cold!

Designer Spotlight: Soyer

October 30, 2012

I discovered a new brand while in NYC - Soyer.  Designer Soyun Shin has created an awesome knitwear company.  With sweater dressing in mind, Soyer is perfect for the modern woman on the go. The key to the clothing is sophistication meets versatility as the pieces are simple yet tailored with an unexpected twist.  I picked up this sweater in black from the boutique Curve in Soho and have been living in it since returning to London.  Literally I wore it Saturday on the plane, to brunch Sunday at Tom's Kitchen and today for lunch at the Dorchester.  Chances are I'll be wearing it tonight as well.  I really need to find a new obsession and fast!

Tom Ford Beauty

October 17, 2012

I have discovered my new favorite makeup line - Tom Ford Beauty.
Above image from left to right:

  • Cafe Rose Eau de Parfum
  • Exotic Teal Eye Defining Pencil
  • Midnight Eye Defining Pencil
  • Emerald Lust Eye Color Quad
  • Narcissist Cheek Color
  • Peach Blush Illuminating Highlighter Pen
  • Bordeaux Lust Nail Lacquer
  • Minx Nail Lacquer
  • Naivete Ultra Shine Lip Gloss

My personal trick: I line the outer corner to the middle of the upper eyelid with Exotic Teal Eye Defining Pencil and fully line the bottom eyelid with Midnight Eye Defining Pencil.  With a coat of mascara, this look will give you just enough of a pop of color but still remain subtle.

On another note, did you know Tom Ford Beauty is part of the Estee Lauder brands?  Very stylish indeed.
