Great Taste: CHANEL & Mr. Lagerfeld Remind Us, They OWN a Winery

Though the winery was founded in 1661 by Pierre de Rauzan, Chateau Rauzan-Segla, situated in the heart of the Margaux appellation—was acquired by CHANEL in 1994. CHANEL’s luxury brand house has wowed us with their CLASSY little buy, the winery is both unique and pristine and the vineyard takes great pride in treating their vines with the upmost care and respect. The incomparable rich bouquet & silky intense tannins combine to create an elegant taste that makes this Grand Cru Classé an exceptional flavorful wine.

The 350th Anniversary will culminate with fun, and celebrate the exceptional quality of the 2009 vintage Chateau Rauzan-Segla. The luxury fashion house is proud to announce spectacular, one time only – collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld (YAY). They have decided to to honor these two remarkable milestones—the anniversary and exceptional vintage, so Lagerfeld has brought his iconic drawing style to the label with a rendering of the Chateau Rauzan-Segla. How’s that for great taste and CHANEL? See video here!

FENDI Knows That Even Tots Need Their Couture

If you like dressing your toddler in high-fashion gear-then you will be over the moon and slightly poorer after hearing the following news. On Thursday, April 14th FENDI will debut its Children’s Spring/Summer 2011 Collection at the FENDI Fifth Avenue Flagship in New York City. The fashion show will be hosted by Gossip Girl actress, Kelly Rutherford in partnership with Divalysscious Moms. A group of 4-6 year old boys and girls are set to model stylish tapered pants, playful dresses, and graphic tees, representing the next FENDI generation and guaranteed to make all moms gaga with fashion joy. True to the Italian house’s form, the children’s collection maintains FENDI’s fundamental principle of quality and craftsmanship, translating into a modern-day fairy tale mixed with contemporary classics. The girl’s clothing features light pink and yellow dresses, liberty print tops, and printed leggings while the boys sport chic bomber jackets, nautical prints, and pieces in natural tones such as beige and sand. And for those moms concerned that such a high-end collection will stunt their kid’s playtime, stay worry free because the line is made out of super-comfy materials like linen, silk and cotton fabrics, enabling kid activity sans any problems.

Under the direction of Karl Lagerfeld for Women’s ready to wear and fur and Silvia Venturini Fendi for accessories, FENDI has remained a symbol of Italian luxury in the fashion world. Which is why, we are pretty excited to see what chic creations they come up with for Tots.

Matthew Williamson To Collaborate with Macy’s on More Affordable Capsule Collection

And just when you thought Matthew Williamson couldn’t spread himself even more thin-with a recent Bridal collection out, a book on the designer’s life, and an H&M Collaboration on his back-the British designer is now teaming up with major-chain house Macy’s to launch a new capsule collection.

The collection will include 30 styles of dresses, rompers, jackets, scarves, playsuits and tops. WWD reports that the dresses will sell for $150 while leather jackets will go for about $300. The capsule collection is set to include the designer’s signature sexy cocktail dresses, love of color-(which means there will be a lot of pink), and bohemian flair.

“The collection aims to capture the essence of the mainline brand, with a focus on effortless glamour; dynamic prints; loosely structured sihouettes, and pops of strong color, “says Williamson.

While such a pairing will most likely attract a younger crowd that would otherwise abstain from purchasing items from Williamson’s much more expensive  line, the collaboration will also help Macy’s rejuvenate its American department store and capture a younger consumer market.

 ”The most important thing is finding designers that best represent what the trends are of the moment,” Macy’s Inc. executive vice president of fashion and new business, Molly Langenstein, told WWD. This spring, the Seventies prints and colours are strong influences, and Matthew exudes those. He is tremendous at pops of strong colour and he does dynamic prints reminiscent of the Seventies and the disco era.”

Macy’s previous joint design projects have included a collaboration with Kinder Aggugini, and a collaboration with  Karl Lagerfeld is set to be next in line.

Model, Dree Hemingway, is set to be the face of the campaign. The collection will launch April 13th in 225 stores and on Macys.com.

Is Haider Ackermann the Next Galliano?

If the fashion world held a popularity contest for the most sought after-up-and-coming designer, Haider Ackermann would take the winning prize. Not only has he been named one of the main contenders to replace John Galliano at Dior, but Karl Lagerfeld has said that Ackermann should be the one to replace him as Creative Director for Chanel when the Kaiser throws in the towel. That being said, all eyes were on Haider Ackermann as he presented his Fall 2011 Ready-To-Wear Collection for Paris Fashion Week.

While last season he forayed into bold color, Ackermann began his Fall 2011 show with pure black-satin coats that is. Soon enough, ivory hued trousers entered the picture, followed by a gorgeous combination of metallic jeweled tones. But Ackermann’s well-deserved popularity doesn’t just stem from his choice of brilliant color pairings-his artistic craftsmanship and ability to drape, twist, tuck and tailor leather, satin, silk and suede into beautiful coats, jackets and dresses makes Ackermann’s style unique and almost unprecedented.

Similar to his previous collection, Ackermann focused on the details that made each look undeniably his-cinching waists with wide belts, rolling sleeves past elbows, albeit this time with a more masculine attitude. The designer backstage said regarding the Ackermann girl, “Last season, she was letting herself go. Now she wants to be more reserved.” Reserved but not unnoticed, as Ackermann’s “girl” strutted around confidently in second-skin knits, which revealed a lot of leg , as well as cut-out jackets worn with metallic sapphire trousers-not a look for the typical wallflower.

And while Galliano’s departure may still be fresh and recent in some minds, because  fashion is the industry that never sleeps, insiders that have already been taking bets as to Ackermann being Galliano’s replacement, will only be more confident in their decision after viewing such an impressive collection.
