Her coat is pushed back at the shoulders at a rakish angle as if she was a bit hot and flustered. The collar of her puffer framed her shoulders and create quite a picture indeed.

INTRODUCING VITA KIN . FASHION 101

MAY I INTRODUCE YOU TO VITA KIN Vita Kin is the absolutely most chic thing in the fashion atmosphere at this very moment. It is inspired by traditional Ukrainian folk embroidery on linen by its namesake Vita Kin. Made of 100% linen that is finely embroidered to the hilt and then belted is the height of what is of the moment in fashion. It’s almost the end of summer and heading into the resort season this is the perfect companion. It is also worn for fall, layered of course in like color cashmere. This is my favorite thing for fall.

Fashion’s Rising Star

MARQUES ALMEIDA FASHION'S RISING STAR Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida are the design duo behind the label Marques Almeida. Formerly designers of Helmut Lang, the modernist label that reached its peak in early 2000's fizzled after its namesake head designer departed.

They are the winners of the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers and in turn, they will receive a year of mentoring from LVMH plus the cash prize of 300,000 Euros. This, they say, will be used to hone their vision of “raw undone luxury”. I discovered this rising star of a label at one of my favorite stores...
