Style Scrapbook: Psychedelic Daze

Uncategorized

It’s summer, and I’m eager to take a weird trip with out of the box prints, holographic metallics, decadent jewels, and accessories that are a bit surreal… Psychedelic inspiration is easy to find in trippy colors, off-beat works of art, and especially in vintage imagery — the summer of love can provide endless ideas, perfect for summer festivals, or every day demonstrations of peace and love. See below for some great inspiration and clothing and accessories that you can shop now to get the perfect psychedelic look.

One Million Hearts: Fashion Unites for Haiti

Uncategorized

The CFDA and fashion Designer Donna Karan teamed up for a project for Karan’s charity Urban Zen called upon american designers to fashion their own paper mache hearts donated by DKNY to be sold as a part of
their auction on eBay ‘One Million Hearts’ for Haiti
— the resulting hearts were not only for a great cause, but happened to be pretty fabulous.

The hearts were all crafted by Hatian artisans, whom supporting is a big part of what the foundation does. The personalized hearts will be auctioned on eBay, the auction ending on May 2nd. I highly recommend checking out the creations and if you are feeling charitable bidding
on one from your favorite designer.

You can also see the exhibition / explosion of hearts decorating Urban Zen’s beautiful West Village store.

Some of my favorite designers were included in this project, and I was so glad to see their hearts helping Haiti. Here are a few of my favorites, even though they we’re all fantastic ! You can check out all of the clever designs here on ebay’s fashion for Haiti store.
