Coming This Fall: Max Mara Tailored Suit Project Launch

Max Mara 1 Max Mara 2

We are so excited to announce a new project from Max Mara! As a brand that’s always been synonymous with highly tailored, adaptable garments, Max Mara will be launching their Tailored Suit Project this fall.

The collection will focus on jackets offering precision tailoring which blends traditional menswear tailoring techniques that are built around a women’s body. Using exemplary fabrics, with hand-sewn tailored precision (each jacket takes 345 minutes to make — double the standard time!!), for an exceptional fit.

Our favorites are the double-breasted jacket, and the long camel coat (as seen above).  What’s more Tomgirl than a jacket, styled after menswear, but tailored for us ladies?  We’ll take 5 (bank account pending)!!

Meet Hannah Kluckhohn.  She’s a stylist here in NYC and I had the delight of working with her for a few days!  Her effortlessly style is relaxed and cool.  And I love the way she mixes high-end and vintage to keep things balanced.  I’m really digging those metallic sandals and her vintage Chanel.

Her style philosophy:  “Attitude is the perfect accessory. It can make or break an outfit.”

Fashion Icon:  “Richard Avedon is my fashion icon. He captures not only the beauty of the clothes but the story they were created to tell.”

Follow her on Instagram: @hkluck, Facebook: Hannah Kluck, and Pinterest: Hannah Kluck  and check out all this lovely lady is up to!

Friday Muse: Christina Caradona of Trop Rouge #NMWarrior

20140822-101736-37056253.jpg

“You don’t have to wear a suit to feel strong.” 

Our Friday muse goes out to my friend Christina Caradona from the blog, Trop Rouge. She the latest blogger to be featured in Nicole Miller’s Female Warriors campaign and agree with everything she says in this video –minus the part where her mom thinks she won’t find a boyfriend because of her tomboy style– I mean, come on. She has the best style ever and she’s so beyond stunning it’s ridiculous. She’s a diamond in the rough, and personally I think the issue is there aren’t enough men worthy of such a gem.

A few weeks back I gave some tips on how to be safe and stylish in the sun. One of which was sun protective clothing that contains UPF (the textile version of SPF). While it’s available in all different types of apparel, I’ve only owned protective scarves until Summer Skin came into my wardrobe.

Created by Summer Kramer, a melanoma survivor, Summer Skin is a line of sun protective clothing. All of the pieces in her line has a UPF of 50+, which is more than the basic t-shirt (that’s only UPF 5!).

My top and pants are both from Summer Skin and they are so comfortable and feel like regular fabric! Styled with the vintage mens suitcase I just purchased of eBay, I’ve never felt more protected from the sun!

Bowie forever

how to david bowie

If any of you follow my other blog, Pretty Connected, you may know that I was one of five bloggers to be picked to compete in the In Touch Weekly, Life & Style Weekly, L.A. COLORS ‘Brush with Fame’ competition, where we were given 5 different makeup challenges. The final challenge was to recreate 3 celebrity styles head to toe. I picked David Bowie, Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora, (the looks are above). I had to share the pictures of my Bowie look because I’m so proud of it and it was so fun to do. I really enjoyed the competition and it inspired me to push my artistry and have some fun with my wardrobe and the L.A. COLORS collection I was sent. The winner hasn’t been announced yet, but wish me luck!

DJ May Kwok Rocks the Casio G-Shock S Series Launch Party

DJ May Kwok

Last night at Milk Studios in NYC, Casio G-Shock Unveiled their new S SERIES - the very first designed exclusively for women in Casio’s 30 year history. What got me more then the sounds by DJ May Kwok was her style! Rocking a Rodarte jersey she spun the event which showcased the new watches.

Based on the casing of the original mens watches these have been adapted in proportion to a woman’s wrist. See below the mens (in matte black) vs the red watch from the S SERIES. Personally, I’d take the mens since I love a big watch, but the green watch with Kwok’s outfit is all kinds of perfection. Full collection and details on my other blog, PrettyConnected.com
