Hermes: Perfect ending to Fashion Week!

Hermes RTW Spring 2011

The Hermes show was a perfect end to Fashion Week in Paris, as it also marked the end of Jean-Paul Gaultier's 7 year tenure at the design house.  Absolutely loved the equestrian show, with a woodchip runway, dressage horses strutting at the end of the catwalk, and massive chandeliers.  Jodhpurs, bustiers, tan leather, suede ponchos, fringe, riding boots--the entire collection was like a dream in a Seville stable.  Neutral colors are all over the runways for Spring/Summer 2011, and we love the minimal cropped cuts matched with Gaultier's baroque sensibility.   Also, those riding school hats are amahze, no??

Here's the finale of the show:

The riding look is always in style, and luckily this is one trend that we can all start on early!  Caramel colors, leather, and tall flat boots are things to start wearing right now and throughout the fall.  Wear your hair in a long braid with a silk scarf for a classic Hermes look.  And of course, finish off the look with a buttery leather bag from Kage and some skinny black jeans from J Brand from Gramercy!

KAGE and J Brand...a perfect combo

Stay tuned for tons more Fashion Week coverage!  There's so much from Paris, Milan, and New York.  It's all wonderfully overwhelming!!

  5. Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

    The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
