I’ve Seen a Million Dresses and I’ve Rocked the Mall

tom_kolovos_wordpressnewTis the season.

I’ve been scouring the racks for  killer party dresses and this one is one of my favorites. The runway photo doesn’t begin to do it justice. It’s the LBD of the 2009 holiday season. Wear it as shown or strip it down with gladiator heels or layer it under a killer boyfriend jacket.

Aura one shoulder dress by Rag and Bone $435. At Intermix and Rag and Bone.

And just in case you can wait till March 2010 to take delivery of one of the most spectacular gowns you’re ever likely to see, order this one form Naeem Khan. Price available upon request.

Who’s your daddy?

If you weren’t able to make it to New York Fashion week this year, perhaps you can make it to Chicago’s Magnificent Mile on Saturday.

David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, the design duo behind the label Rag and Bone, will be making a personal appearance in Chicago, first on the 5th floor of Saks between noon and 2 pm and then at Intermix between 2 and 3:30pm.

This is the second visit by the lads to the Windy City in a year. Since they were last here at Hejfina in Bucktown, they have opened a second store in New York’s Soho neighborhood and both have become fathers for the second time.

It’s a testament to the speed with which this young label has ascended as a retail darling, and to the positive reviews for their  Spring 2010 show, that they  can swoop into town and, in a “who’s-your-daddy” show of force, land at both Saks and Intermix.

While the Fall collection was inspired by a trip to Japan and the movies because, as Wainwright confessed, “I’ve always wanted a samurai sword and I’ve always loved Star Wars,”  Rag and Bone’s strength is in what he describes as “our English, military-school heritage mixed with a utilitarian, made-in-America ethos.”

The focus of their appearances in Chicago will be to promote the women’s line but guys don’t let that intimidate you. The lads make, among other things, some of the most covetable vests and leather jackets you’re likely to see, so you should run accross to the men’s store at Saks and invest in your future (stylish self).

Saks Fifth Avenue is located at 700 North Michigan Avenue and Intermix is located at 40 East Delaware in Chicago. Intermix will be offering  15% off any purchase of Rag and Bone.
