Wish List Wednesday: Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013 Limited Edition Foulards d’Artistes Textiles

Leave it to Louis Vuitton to take it to the streets.  That’s right, the French fashion house has decided to put all the nitty gritty, beautiful things about urban culture front and center in their newest collection of textiles.  

Featuring 3 lines produced by these street artists: Aiko, Retna, and Os Gemeo, the collection evokes the beautiful, bright colors of graffiti’d walls, street murals, and the hustle and bustle of what makes major cities so… well, major!  We love this new collection and can’t wait to get our hands on each and every piece.  

They start at about $450 and go well over the $800 mark but we don’t care because, like the streets, these bad boys are timeless.

Fashion Icon Friday: Catherine Deneuve

This week’s fashion icon is the chic French actress, Catherine Deneuve.

Catherine started acting at the age of 11 in various French films and quickly became a French icon of beauty. Catherine has appeared in a variety of American films, including The Hunger with David Bowie and Susan Sarandon. This brought her recognition across the world, becoming known as one of the most stylish and beautiful women of all time.

She was a muse to the late Yves Saint Laurent, frequently appearing in his clothes for her many red carpet appearances. YSL also dressed Catherine for her films such as Belle de Jour and La Chamade. In the late 1970’s, she was the face of Chanel No. 5. In the 1980’s, Catherine created her own perfume line called “Deneuve,” later adding glasses, shoes, and jewelry to the collection.

In 2006, MAC cosmetics used Catherine as inspiration for its “Beauty Icon” series. While Catherine is considered a 1960’s fashion and style icon, she still remains in the industry, most recently appearing in Louis Vuitton ads.

Over time, she has kept her style: chic, feminine, yet sexy, always with a hint of French flair.

Fashion Icon Friday: Sofia Coppola

Sofia Coppola was born in New York, the only daughter of Eleanor Coppola and acclaimed director Francis Ford Coppola.

Sofia started acting at an early age in her father’s films, such as The Godfather and The Outsiders. Following in her father’s footsteps, Sofia became a director. Her first film was Lick the Star in 1998, followed by The Virgin Suicides. Her third film, Lost in Translation, won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and Golden Globe for Best Film. It was also nominated for Best Director, making her the first American woman to be nominated in that category. Some of her other notable films include Marie Antionette, featuring over-the-top period costumes, and her most recent film, Somewhere.

Sofia has indulged in fashion since an early age, appearing in magazines like Seventeen during the 1990’s. When she was 15, she interned at Chanel. In 1998, Sofia and her friend, Stephanie Hayman, co-founded the line MilkFed, now exclusively sold in Japan. Marc Jacobs considers Sofia one of his muses, personally choosing her in 2002 as the face of his house fragrance. She has appeared in many of his ads, as well as Louis Vuitton ads. Sofia also combined her talents for directing and fashion when she directed Dior’s commercial for their fragrance Miss Dior Chérie shot in France.

Sofia’s style looks effortlessly chic but she is always dressed impeccably for her many red carpet awards appearances and, of course, fashion shows.
