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 Power Tube Lightning Charger from MiPow is like your cell phone’s holy ghost: not only does it recharge your battery at lightning speed and eliminate the need to carry around a cable, it works as a location tracker, so as long as it’s in your bag you’ll know exactly where all your stuff is. And fab.com’s price point is good too at $49.99.

Nothing says serious menswear editor more than a great man bag. When it comes to man bags, Fossil to the rescue!! Whether your needs dictate messenger bag or chic leather workbag, Fossil has a good range of styles and man bag silhouettes that can fit all your NYFWM’s needs.

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.

Still, you can be comfortable and stylish in Donald J. Pliner shoes. From calf suede and waxy calf leather driving loafer to black calf leather sneakers to boa print leather loathers to leather sandals, Donald J. Pliner has your feet covered, literally. Price points range from $139 to $595.

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. Injectable treatments are an option to tightening up your skin and getting rid of some the wrinkles; however, most treatments are really expensive and can leave a little bruising.

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. (And believe me it works, after only one treatment, I saw immediate results.)

You will need several treatments to see lasting results. But, believe me its worth the costs.

Editors’ Pick: Vverx

Verx_fall_2017Who said urban fashion is dead? After the demise of Karl Kani, Cross Colors, Baby Phat, FUBU, and a host of other urban brands, the word of the street was that urban fashion had outlived its time. And as the stars of hip hop bragged about closets stocked with Versace, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and other iconic design houses, the remaining urban brands transitioned in what in now called contemporary men’s fashion.

That was almost two decades ago and as Bob Dylan pined, “the times they are a changing.” Enter Vverx.

Collages1331Vverx is more than just another urban wear brand trying to find its distinctive voice in a saturated market, a market that doesn’t look kindly on brands that take on the urban moniker. Vverx is a lifestyle that is encapsulated in urban wear. A brand that is ever evolving, reflecting the past and the past, and capturing those fleeting pivotal moments in our lives, that in retrospect defines and shapes our individuality.

Vverx keeps its fingers on the pulse of its consumers by keeping its product homegrown, handcrafted in New York City. Shying away from mass production, Vverx approach to merchandizing allows its garments to be rich, innovative, with complex patterning that is reminiscent of New York City subway graffiti, as well as utilitarian in scope.

Vverx also celebrates the beauty of contradictions, as in the soft meets hard, contemporary meets nostalgic, simple meets complex. And its fall 2017 collection is the epitome of contradictions; a utilitarian construction man aesthetic meets innovative charm.

Prices range for the brands hoodies, tee shirts, sweatshirts, crew necks, denim jackets and parkas from $283 to $1950.  For more information, go to vverx.com.

Love Lilly’s print dresses are craftily designed and come in the highest quality fabrics and trims.

Perfect for hot summer days, and easy to pack in your weekender!

Campaign Spotlight: Jockey Finds its Star in Michaela DePrince

Michaela_DePrince_Jockey_01

Misty Copeland is not the only ballerina of color who is making an impact on global audiences. Enter Michaela DePrince.

It is a rare that a ballet dancer achieves notoriety beyond the proscenium arch; however, both Misty Copeland with her 2015 “Under Armour” campaign, and now Michaela DePrince, with her recent campaign with Jockey, have done just that. And they are both ballerinas of color, another rarity!!

DePrince gained national attention with her appearance in the dance documentary “First Position.” “First Position” followed several top dancers competing at the Youth America Grand Prix ballet competition. DePrince storyline particulary stood out because of her circuitous and somewhat perilous path to ballet notoriety.

Michaela DePrince (born Mabinty Bangura) was orphaned in her war torn Sierra Leone, and one of the last adoptable prospects because of her skin condition, vitiligo. (Some people in West Africa believe vitiligo is as an indication of evil or demon possession.) Inspired by a discarded coloring book about ballerinas, Michaela DePrince dreamed one day she would become a ballet dancer without having ever seen a ballet or knowing what ballet was.

Later, DePrince was adopted by a compassionate American couple who enrolled her in dance classes.Her prodigious talent and drive was evident early on and DePrince studied on scholarship to the Rock School in Philadelphia and American Ballet Theatre’s Jacqueline Onassis School of Ballet. After graduation DePrince performed with the Dance Theatre of Harlem and is now a soloist with the Dutch National Ballet. Her best-selling book Taking Flight: From War Orphan to Star Ballerina has been optioned as film by MGM. Michaela in 2016 also starred in the “Hope” section of Beyonce’s “Lemonade” video.

The Jockey #ShowEm campaign introduces Michaela proudly wearing Jockey in a personal, intimate video and series of portraits illustrating what’s underneath it all, both literally and figuratively. #ShowEm honors everyday heroes who embody the spirit and values of Jockey and the characteristics that make them unique, like perseverance, courage, family and hope.

“Michaela’s story from survival to success made her an ideal hero for the #ShowEm campaign,” said Matthew Waller, senior manager of corporate communications and brand partnerships, Jockey. “We’re so proud to be able to amplify Michaela’s story and be a part of her life as she continues to realize her dream and inspire others by conveying the message of ‘hope’.”

“I was drawn to Jockey and its #ShowEm campaign because it is authentic and inspiring,” said Michaela DePrince. “The campaign gives me an opportunity to reach more people with my story and inspire others to feel confident and comfortable with who they are, inside and out, and provide hope.

Developed by marketing partner Pure Growth Consulting, the “Show ’Em What’s Underneath, Show ’Em Your Jockey” campaign will be supported by national print ads in PeopleWomen’s HealthAllureElleDance Magazine, among others. The campaign will be activated online with video, digital ads and social media.

The Jockey #ShowEm campaign launched on April 27.

Editors’ Pick: Persaman New York’s Fall 2017 Handbags

Persaman_Handbags_Fall_2017Everyone is looking for balance in life. From the seeming balance between family life and career, to the balance and equality of the sexes to balance in finances and spirituality, balance is necessary to live the good life.

The balance between what we mere humans call good and evil is that explainable thing that balances out the cosmos. With all that said, balance can also be interpreted as the freedom to express all aspects of one’s personality. That balance can also be found in fashion, a balance that often bridges the gap between polar opposites. The worlds were sophistication meets whimsy, chicness is paired with a street style sensibility, and there is a marriage of traditional classics and modern charm.

Persaman New York Fall 2017 Men's Bags

Persaman New York Fall 2017 Men’s Bags

All these fashionable aspects are capsulized in Persaman New York new fall 2017 handbag collection. Staying true to Persaman’s strong design ethos, the fall 2017 collection exuberates class, style and a touch of playfulness. The collection, inspired by the modern-day bohemian, features the soft hues of the seasons—burgundy, squash yellow, and pumpkin orange—juxtaposed with intricate metal work used throughout each bag. Persaman New York found its muse for this collection through travel, entertainment and the arts; this inspiration lead the brand to enlist the work of local artisans to create the handmade details that the Persaman customer truly adores.

Twenty years after being founded in New York City, Persaman New York remains a lifestyle brand and a destination for consumers that want modern bohemian clothing, accessories, home and gifts that reflect their own lives, passions from their homes, arts, travel and entertainment.

Editors’ Pick: VEGGANI: Fashionable Handbags with a Purpose

Collages1167In a market that is oversaturated with products that purport to be innovative and eco-friendly, it is so important for brands to be authentic and true to their product DNA. Due to the wealth of information readily available to consumers, it is so easy to get access to accurate information about brands and expose their true value through social media.

VEGGANI is a brand that, though in existence for a short time, is proving that their products are everything they purport to be. As a vegan handbag line, VEGGANI believes that consumers can possess fashion-forward handbags that protect animals and the planet.

Veggani Hi Res SS17Founder and Designer Laura de Waal’s goal in starting VEGGANI was to create stylish, functional, quality handbags that do not compromise VEGGANI’s ethics but promote them. All of VEGGANI’s handbags reflect a commitment to being socially responsible, environmentally conscious and animal friendly. One of the key elements of VEGGANI’s mission is not only helping impoverished communities, but to bring awareness to them. VEGGANI use high quality materials that are often recycled and/or repurposed. When possible, we work with and support smaller factories and artisan workshops. These efforts are never easy and require much more attention, research and heart than creating a product without a conscious.

OK, they use vegan material and faux fur in their handbags, not original concept. The linings are made from recycled fabric. Also been done before. Lastly, some of the metal hardware on VEGGANI handbags are created by artisans in a remote village in the Xieng Khouang Province in Northern Laos. Still, other philanthropic accessory brands have reached back to assist third world villages and communities.

That said; what sets VEGGANI apart from other brands that profess similar goals? Their design aesthetic and high-quality product is VEGGANI’s raison d’etre and reason consumers should take notice of the brand. Case in point is VEGGANI’s fashion forward and innovative cork-fabrication handbags. That’s right hand bags made out of cork!!

VEGGANI’s cork handbag comes in a pale tan cork or cork combined with a vegan leather in a range of colors. The cork bag is great as a casual bag, or a night out on the town bag or even for the fashionista who wants a bag that causes conversation. And the durability and quality of the cork bag goes without question.

Other great styles in the collection include vegan crocodile clutches, faux fur purses and shoulder bags, and vegan backpacks and travel bags. For more information, go to veggani.com.

Editors’ Pick: Black Halo’s ‘Jackie O’ Capsule Collection

Black_Halo_Jackie_O_02First Ladies’ style evokes elegance, style, sophistication and glamour. And the press readily covers the style choices of First Ladies. Whether it is the departure of former FLOTUS Michelle Obama and her inimitable style or the minimalistic elegance of current FLOTUS Melania Trump, there is a lot of buzz and tongues wagging about fashion and style according to First Ladies of the United States.

On the heels of Natalie Portman’s Oscar-nominated performance in “Jackie,” Black Halo has launched a limited edition ‘Jackie O’ Ten-Year Anniversary Collection. The classic black ‘Jackie O’ dress has been a part of Black Halo’s iconic collections for over ten years. In celebration of the ‘Jackie O’ dress, Black Halo’s creative director Laurel Berman has designed a special capsule collection.

“The ‘Jackie O’ dress is a one-piece dress that conjures up the style of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. It has transformed the way women dress, taking them from boardroom to bar or desk to dinner. It is the epitome of one-piece dressing,” details Francine Weiss, Ideas 8 public relations representative for Black Halo. “Black Halo launched the ‘Jackie O’ dress ten years ago, so they celebrating with a ten-year capsule collection inspired by the ‘Jackie O’ dress.”
