Editors’ Pick: Katy Perry’s INDI Fragrance

Katy Perry is everywhere!! And that’s a good thing!! In addition to Katy’s music market saturation with a slew of hit singles and being the current host of “The Voice,” Katy has become a fashion icon. Katy Perry has the Katy Perry Collection with Covergirl. And there is also Katy Perry’s shoe collection.

For most celebrities, that would be more than enough market saturation; but not for Katy. You can now add to Katy Perry’s brand explosion her new fragrance from Coty Fragrances, INDI.

This is a brave move on the part of Coty Fragrances and Katy Perry. Celebrity fragrances traditionally have the shortest shelf life of all commercial fragrances. And though this fragrance statistic still holds true, depending on the celeb, the shelf life may be truncated, but there can be a lot of ka-ching in the short term. Katy and Coty Fragrance are betting on this!!

INDI is a one-of-a-kind seductive musk fragrance that elevates the senses. The fragrance is artfully crafted with 11 different musks that blend beautifully with open notes of oriental plum and Italian bergamot. The combination of fresh muguet and white cedar wood mingle with the velvety warmth of amber and vanilla in the background. Katy Perry’s INDI fragrance is as unique as the consumers that will wear the fragrance.

“The amber and musk combination in Katy Perry’s INDI gives off instant gratification of softness and comfort that I think a lot of people car relate to. I think that’s way it’s a fragrance that can be perfect for anyone. There is a softness to it that is so pleasant when you when you wear it, it makes you feel warm and cozy, perfect for the holiday season,” Caroline Sabas Givaudon, creator of Katy Peri’s INDI.

In this upcoming 2017 season of giving, remember, fragrances can conjure up memories of home, warmth, and familiarity; all great holiday emotions that are trending for 2017. Firmenich perfumer, Frank Voelkl, agrees, “each scent you experience becomes mixed with emotions. When you experience that same scent, it not only sparks a memory, but emotions as well. Our memories feel so much stronger in that moment because we almost get to relive them—feeling the same joy, or excitement, or comfort as the very first time.”

Let INDI with fragrance notes that evoke emotions of comfort and softness be your choice for the holidays! Katy Perry’s INDI is available exclusively on walgreens.com and retail for $24.99–$45.00.—Staff

For those who have wondered what Nicola Formichetti has been doing since his departure from MUGLER in 2013 and his exit as creative directorship at Vogue Hommes Japan in 2012, you only have to take notice of NICOPANDA, the clothing brand Nicola created with his brother Andrea in 2015. Based on the panda cartoon, the New York–based street wear brand is known for its whimsical and playful approach to ready-to-wear and accessories.Since its inception, NICOPANDA has become a favorite brand of celebrities, social media influencers, and youth culture enthusiasts. And the brand has also set itself apart because of its collaborations that are as varied and wide as the fashion industry has ever experienced. “NICOPANDA is a world I’ve created around my alter ego, which began as a simple character named after my nickname growing up, but has since evolved into a fully developed lifestyle brand. Beyond being an idea, which represents universality and individuality, NICOPANDA is a fashion brand fusing eastern and western aesthetics through clothing and accessories,” explained Formichetti in a models.com interview.NICOPANDA’s latest collaboration with Urban Outfitters (UO) consists of favorites from NICOPANDA’s current offering, as well as some exclusive items only available at UO. The NICOPANDA x UO became available on November 13 on urbanoutfitters.com and within select Urban Outfitters stores across North America and Europe, and will live across all UO social and web platforms.“I am so excited to launch with UO! Their stores and website are so much fun to visit and shop—it is a perfect home for NICOPANDA. I wanted to develop an exclusive collection for our launch with UO men’s and women’s—something fun and easy to wear. For this collection specifically—we took the classic idea of camouflage and shook it up with vivid colors—red, purple, pink, blue, yellow. The idea is to stand out—not blend in! I suggest layering them all together for a full-on look,” detailed Formichetti.The 8-piece women’s wear assortment includes a maxi puffer jacket in white camo, a playful mini-dress with cold shoulder detailing, a sheer maxi dress in red, a pink camo hoodie and matching joggers, a sheer ruffle dress in black, a puffer jacket in pastel camo, and a maxi puffer scarf. The men’s collection consists of a long-sleeve tee, an oversized hoodie, a double layer tee, a camo sweatpant, a puffer scarf, and camo hat. Prices range from $40 to $350.

This season nothing says 2018 Winter Olympics better than NICOPANDA x UO.

Fashion Reverie’s Last Minute Halloween Looks

Halloween will soon be upon us! Did you get a last-minute party invite but don’t want to spend upwards of $75 on flimsy ill-fitting costume from Party City or Ricky’s you’ll never wear again? You may already have the ingredients for 5 quick and easy costumes for that fashionista in your closet.

                          Image courtesy of popsugar.com

Anna Wintour, the legendary fashion diva herself!What you will need:

  • Your chicest outfit
  • Sunglasses
  • A copy of Vogue magazine
  • A bobbed wig in light brown

Put together a look you love! Accessorize like it’s going out of style. Don’t be afraid to go over the top. Never take off your sunglasses off even at night. Carry a copy of Vogue and give insane fashion advice. See wacky fashion advice below:

  • Those shoes may your ears look sad
  • The Pantone color of the season is jelly
  • My favorite look from New York Fashion Week is Jeremy Scott’s living cat scarves. But how do you make the scarves stop purring?
  • Are you breathing? Oxygen is SO last season

  Image courtesy of paramountpictures.com

Wednesday AddamsOh, sure you could do the traditional Mortica Addams, but everyone does that and besides people are just going to think you’re Elvira, mistress of the dark. Pick a different Halloween look?

What you will need:

  • Little black dress with long sleeves
  • White collared shirt
  • Black tights
  • Black flat shoes

Part your hair down the center and make pigtail braids on each side, if you really want to sell it, comb through some temporary black dye. Just know if you have blond or light brown hair, the black dye will take longer to wash out. Put foundation all over your face including your lips and skip any blusher.

Carry a headless doll and say disturbing (but funny) things in a flat monotone. Examples below:

  • I must feed the dog … to my alligator
  • Do you like my costume? I’m a serial killer. They look just like everyone else.
  • You have nice skin. It does a great job holding in your organs. It’s not even leaking.

                                   Image courtesy of dailymail.co.uk

FBI Agent

  • Professional looking suit
  • Sunglasses
  • White ear buds

Or you can make it a couples costume by added a red wig to create Dana Scully and Mulder. You’ll need badges for both. If you don’t want to make a trip to the costume shop, write out FBI on a 3×5 index card and put it in your wallet to flip out when people ask who you are, or clip it to your breast pocket.

For the White House FBI Agent, slick your hair into tight bun; only put one ear bud in. To make it a sexy White House FBI agent add a mini skirt and stiletto heels.

Say things into your wrist occasionally such as:

  • “President Trump wants to address the press. Swap out his lip balm with a gluestick”
  • “Emergency: Sarah Huckabee just realized her makeup artist is a drag queen who hates her guts”
  • “Trump is getting grumpy, who’s turn is it to put him down for his nap?”

 

Two versions of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”

Classic

  • Little black dress
  • Pearl necklace
  • Tiara
  • Elbow length gloves
  • Long cigarette holder, if you can find one

 

Sexy

  • Man’s white shirt
  • Tassel earrings
  • Light blue sleep mask
  • Draw eyes on the sleep mask with a marker (gold if you have it, but black will do)

 

Audrey Hepburn’ character, Holly Golightly, was an AMAZING character. Reciting any one of her quotes from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is fun and sure to get you lots of laughs.

  • “It may be normal, darling; but I’d rather be natural.”
  • “What I found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany’s. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. ” 
  • “Wrinkles and bones, white hair and diamonds: I can’t wait.”

THERAMU Relieve with Menthol

Fatigue and exhaustion can be coped with, but pain is another thing and very hard to deal with during Fashion Week. THERAMU Relieve with Menthol is an all-natural alternative to reducing pain and inflammation; this mentholated version improves people’s quality of life. When applied directly to the source of pain or discomfort, the fast-acting compound provides near immediate relief with a cooling sensation.

It is the proprietary blend of Emu Oil and Pure Hemp Extract working together as combat multipliers that results in far greater efficacy than their individual effect. Simply put, Emu Oil is proven to be a near perfect carrier for pure hemp extract, and the addition of menthol provides a quick-acting soothing effect.

Fashion pundits contend that Generation Y and/or Millenials are changing the face of retail, as we know it. No longer lured by labels and big household names such as The Gap, Juicy Couture, French Connection, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, JC Penny’s, Sears, or Urban Outfitters, Millienials /Generation Yers relate to brands that reflect their interests and lifestyles.

The National Retail Federation (NRF) recently reported that retail spending for college students would expand to $54.1 billion up from $48.1 billion in 2016 with the average individual spending being around $688.  Additionally, according to Deloitte analysts’ algorithms most back-to-school consumers make their purchases from the last week of July through the end of August.

And though many young consumers are attracted to fast, disposable fashion, a significant number are still looking for quality garments that reflect their lifestyles and values. Fashion Reverie has come with a few great deals that are not only fashionable and trending, but also meets that average $688 budget.

Editors’ Pick: For Fall 2017 Zadig & Voltaire Marries Three Prominent Trends

Collages1373Don’t be fooled by late summer temperatures, it’s time to start considering your fall wardrobe. And retailers are focused and primed to get consumers attention on fall clothes. Pre-fall clothing has been in the stores since late July and now big retail stores are being stocked with fall merchandise.

That said; when it comes to stylish fall fashion, no brand does it better than Zadig & Voltaire. Launched in Paris in 1997 by Thierry Giller, the grandson of Lacoste co-founder Andre Giller. Zadig & Voltaire quickly gained a reputation for quality accessible style funneled through the luxury ready-to-wear at prices that middle-income consumers can afford.  In recent years the brand has also branched into fragrances, accessories, jewelry and eyewear.

The fall 2017 season will be a season of lots of trends empowering each other. Things are not what they appear to be for fall 2017 and what might be seen as dissimilar bedfellows, for fall 2017 it’s all in how you mix and match these polar opposites. Zadig & Voltaire has found the perfect combinations. And with three store locations in NYC, you cannot go wrong!!

Zadig_Voltaire_fall_20171Military

Military inspirations pop up as a trend every few years. For fall 2017, Zadig & Voltaire merges camouflage print and leopard spots in a bigger way on khaki and canvas. (Think of military influences in the Congo.) The fall 2017 collection includes a great camo jumpsuit zipped neck collar, as well as other pieces that combine a patchwork of khaki patches, velvet stripes and sweaters.

Zadig_Voltaire_fall_2017Leather

Zadig & Voltaire take leather very seriously. From distressed edges to smooth perfection, for fall 2017, the Parisian-based brand has married New York City style with Parisian chicness and sophistication.

Underwear

Zadig & Voltaire loves to layer. This season Zadig & Zoltaire pair skinny jeans and jumpers with undie unmentionable, flouncy nightgown–like dresses and blouses. This pairing is for the fashion risk-taker and those who want to grab attention.

Editors’ Pick: In Praise of Big Hoop Earrings

Fashion_Reverie24The higher the hair, the closer to God, or so they say—remember 60s beehives and the big hair of the 1980s.  And the larger the earrings, the louder the praise; well, that is Fashion Reverie’s estimation.

Last September at New York Fashion Week: The Shows, big hoop earrings were seen on the runways of designers from Proenza Schouler to Nicholas K to The Blonds to Tibi. The trend is not new, dating back to the 90s when hoops earrings were the go-to urban look in the Latin community. Musician, actress and fashion icon Jennifer Lopez is credited with popularizing them in the mainstream with the look becoming wildly popular among female consumers under 30. (Remember, Jenny from the block.)

Images of Nicholas K fall 2017, Proenza Schouler fall 201, and The Blonds fall 2017 courtesy of fashionreverie.com, tomandlorenzo.com, and fashionreverie.com, respectively

Like all things 90s, right now, big hoops have made a comeback, and everyone from H&M to David Yurman has hopped on the trend. Once Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, and Kendall Jenner were donning big hoop earrings, it was only a matter of time before everyone had to show their sense of style by wearing big hoops.

That said; big hoop earrings are a subset of an even larger trend: fashion maximalism. For those not familiar with the maximalism movement, maximalism is a reactionary response the minimalist theory of ‘less is more.’ Maximalism is all about excess, in other words ‘more is more.’ For the past several years, designers have been showing how larger than life they can be, now even more so than ever in the face of rebellion against right-wing politics.

In_Praise_Big_hoop_earringsAs maximalism movement continues, it is worth noting that this was also fashion’s response to coming out of a period of subtlety and understatement—a response to the Great Recession of 2008. Fashion designers played it safe and stuck to garments that would sell. Once the luxury sector rebounded, designers unleashed with everything from avant-garde styles to statement jewelry that made big statements.

The less-is-more approach went out the window, and jewelry designers took notice. Big hoop earrings also let us know that women are now looking for statement pieces aside from coveted ‘It’ bags or high-priced stiletto footwear.

Fashion_Reverie23Still, don’t purchase any old big hoop earrings thinking you’re in the fashion know. Jewelry selection is an art form, one that isn’t to be taken lightly. Keep in mind how big is big when considering your own face shape. If you have a more petite face, don’t go too oversized. If you are opting for stones, diamonds are a simple, classic choice, and it might be best to stay away from colored gems and semi-precious stones. The size and boldness of your earrings are already making a statement; there is no need to draw any more attention to yourself.

The great thing about big hoop earrings is they can go with almost anything. They can be paired with tee shirts, dresses, gowns, even suits. While this isn’t something we at Fashion Reverie would recommend for the courtroom or boardroom, it’s a versatile look to go from casual Friday to the cocktail party.

If you dare to go really out there with your style, try the one earring look, but make sure it is something that is beautifully ordained and designed. It has to be the kind of thing that says “I have style,” not “I just bought a medieval doorknob for my ear.” Find yourself the perfect ear catching pair, and let them speak for themselves.

Editors’ Pick: Yandy and the MISS TEEN USA Pageant

Collages1360Pageants are no longer what they once were. That applies locally and nationally. For one thing there is been a name correction, they are no longer called beauty pageants; they are competitions. Also, the contestants no longer have to have Pepsident smiles, talk about world peace, and have perfect Barbie-like bodies.

Add to that the elimination of swimsuit competition; something that the MISS TEEN USA® pageant put in place last year. The swimsuit competition is now a fitness competition featuring athletic wear­—to empower women who lead active, purposeful lives. And again, this season Yandy has been selected to supply the athletic wear.

New York Fashion Week: Men’s Spring 2018 Editors’ Essentials

Image courtesy of cntraveler.com

Image courtesy of cntraveler.com

During New York Fashion Week you find two, maybe three types of editors. There are those editors who are running for show to show, working real hard and they look like it!! (I used to be one of those.) Then there are those editors who are just trying to hard and really should re-evaluate their style choices. Too many embellishments, bad style combinations, and just too much makes for an appearance on Fashion Reverie’s “Dippity Don’t” list. Lastly, there are the cool, collected and fashion sensible editors who never looked overwrought and are the epitome of what one would expect a fashion editor to look like.

If you fit into the first two categories, but aspire to be in the last category, Fashion Reverie is going to hope you re-invent your style. Well, at least when it comes to accessories!!

OK, most folks use their Smart phones to know the time, but there is no substitute for a great wristwatch to demonstrate style and sophistication. This New York Fashion Week: Men’s (NYFWM) have a little fun with a watch style and don Mondrian and Pollack watches from fab.com. These watches will certainly get you noticed and the price point of $45 aint bad, either.

Fashion Week is very hectic for editors. From rushing from runway shows to presentations to doing social media to answering emails and texts, your Smart phone can run out of steam real quick!!

The Davis NS Bag holds just enough, perfect for your I-Pad. And if you gonna get a lot of gift swag during NYFWM’s perhaps you should opt for Wyatt Top Zip Workbag which roomy enough to hold your laptop. Price points range from $299 to $98.

During NYFWM, fashion editors and other industry professionals shuffle between Cadillac House, Industria Superstudio and Clarkson Square, and believe me it’s rough on the feet. Serious fashion editors understand that NYFWM is no time to wear cute shoes that haven’t been broken in; comfort is key.

Now, that you’ve got your fashion accessories in place, its time to think about your skin, and more specifically your face. It’s hard to keep that bright-eyed and bushy tailed look if your skin is dull, sallow and lifeless.

So what is an editor to do? Collagen Bar—with two locations in New York City—has some answers. The COLLAGENIZER® delivers non-invasive, instant and long lasting effects. Moreover, macromolecules like collagen can be delivered for the “first time! Transdermal electroporation is hugely successful and widely used in Japan and Europe. The COLLAGENIZER®is used with D-More’s collagen-based gel which contains an injectable medical grade of organic bovine collagen along with Hyaluronic Acid.
