We first learned about Berlin-based lingerie line Wundervoll back in Spring 08 and their minimal, vintage-inspired pieces are still catching our eye seasons later. This Fall 09 Wundervoll's collection features Art Deco-inspired pieces in muted tones. The same adorable high waist panties appear but, of course, there are low-rise options for the gals who just can't envision wearing panties that cover their bellybuttons (understandable). Regardless of your preference, one thing is for sure...lingerie is back in a big way and we can thank brands like Wundervoll for resurrecting the genre.
Check out the Fall 09 Wundervoll look book right here, and, for more lingerie happenings, check out our gallery of the 2008 Victoria's Secret fashion show or our round up of lingerie looks on the Spring 09 catwalks.
First off, there's no denying that the quality of a $1220 dollar Lanvin necklace will differ from that of a $7 Forever 21 version--of course it will. But doesn't this seem absurd, if only for a moment? We're not sure what these six necklaces better demonstrates, the fact that quality is not a dimension in e-commerce or that everyone--from mass market retailer to French fashion house--is trying to save a buck these days. Or could ribbon have coincidentally become a popular way to tie a few stones around your neck? Something tells us there's more to it than that.
New York Look, the biannual magazine put out by New York magazine which covers the two major fashion seasons, has been put on hold--at least for this season. New York magazine told WWD they will consider publishing the magazine again next Fall, but nothing is certain.
Zappos is selling a $50,000 t-shirt that will give the customer free reign to block one person from shopping on the website--for life. We're waiting for the t-shirt to show up on Canal Street.
Topshop's Spring look book has started to circulate and fans are revisiting the Spring preview in anticipation for a New York store opening. The Soho store was meant to open in October of 2008 but the date has been pushed back to March of this year--at least for now.
Badgley Mischka has announced that they will lower the prices of their Fall 09 collection. We're wondering if this means lower quality fabrics, or less complicated garments from the brand. Check out the Spring 09 collection right here.
