Romeo Hunte FW 2018 Review


By Amber Monaé
On a rainy Sunday afternoon, I ran off to the Standard in the exclusive Meat Packing District (MPD) to take in the RTW 2018 collection of Romeo Hunte. The designer is known for his outerwear pieces and this collection gave me all of that and more. From the plaids, furs, vinyl and scuba gear (sounds like a lot) Hunte executed the collection perfectly. Take a look.

Lou & Grey Grand Opening Party


Are you a  Lou & Grey girl? She is a free spirit who floats in and out of every situation with ease. I think I am and its my new favorite spot to shop at in NYC. I was very very impressed with the Fall/Winter collection at the new Lou & Grey store which happened to take over the old location on Fifth Ave and 19th where Club Monaco used to be. In great company under the Ann Taylor umbrella, this is where the daughter of a woman who shops at Ann Taylor would come to update her closet. From nailpolish, to jewelry pieces and perfume, it’s pretty much a one stop shop. Visit www.louandgrey and see what I am so hype about. The above picture is exactly my style and as I walked through the crowd and took a look at more of the pieces I fell in love. I think you will too.  (more…)

moschino01If you are going to be in the Los Angeles area anytime soon and would like to see the creative work of Jeremy Scott, pop into the first ever Moschino store in the US. The 3500 square foot displays huge cola cans while mannequins wear can printed ready to wear. Nestled on Beverly Boulevard not too far from Stella McCartney and Jenni Kayne, Moschino I’d say LA is lucky to have all of Jeremy’s creative pieces right down the street.  The lifestyle brand carries, men’s and women’s from ready-to-wear, handbags and shoes to swimwear, intimates and fragrance and is read available to a younger and trendier crowd. As Milan Men’s Fashion Week continues, next stop for Moschino is Milan and then of course a location a Soho location.
