The Beauty Files: Making Waves

Beachy waves are a great way to add a little easy-glam to your do summer tresses.Muccia Prada mixed it up this menswear season, adding some womenswear looks to the usually all male model line-up. Girls with clean, soft make-up and beachy waves seemed a natural choice for a collection set in a slightly dark,tropical locale. The inhabitants of Muccia's paradise lost wore Palm-printed 40s motifs and silk crepe florals set against a palate of deeper,earthy tones.

Helmut Lang

My obsession with all things monochromatic ( with some neutrals slipped in here and there) continues. Before Alexander Wang and Hedi Silame for Saint Laurent brought downtown, rock-cool to a new generation of fashion-minded folk, Helmut Lang was sending his edgey minimalist designs down 90s runways. Lang his eponymous label in 2005 to pursue art full-time. Both artworks included after the jump are by Helmut Lang.

Lust Worthy: L'Agence Thereasa Clear Strap Sandals

Wide, flat sandals have been everywhere for resort 2014. We can probably blame trendsetter Pheobe Philo for starting the craze with the furry pool sandals she showed for Celine's Spring 2013 show. This sleek pair from L'Argence caught my eye. With clear and lizzard-embossed leather straps, they might not scream for attention like the Celine pair, but that doesn't stop them from making a clean and simple statement of their own.

Dressed Down

Tommy Ton Shoots the 2013 CFDA awards

I am currently loving the dressing down trend with simple lines in black, white, and neutrals. It is totally in line with how I want to dress right now.  Ease is a natural attribute for Resort, a ready-to-wear season that orginally provided clothes for those who lunch and summer. Derek Lam rethought suit dressing with light, languid clothes. This urbane cool is relaxed enough to pair with a non-chalant attitude while still meaning business.

Other New York -based hip Brand Rag and Bone described their Resort 2014 collection as "just clothes". Velvet track pants are the easy-weekend wardrobe must-have for such apathetic-cool. Casual has never been so chic.
