Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2015 ad campaign photographed by Steven Klein. The shots were taken on a party bus under LED lighting. The vibrant neon colors of the SS2015 collection really pop with this effect. Models in this campaign are Anna Ewers, Binx Walton, Lexi Boling, Vanessa Moody, Dylan Xue, and Sarah Brannon.
Model Cara DeLevingne stars in DKNY’s Spring-Summer 2015 menswear campaign. Donning a tailored suit and platform sneakers, her androgynous look shows just how versatile the model can be. Being the face of DKNY, starring in the menswear campaign for this season suits her tomboy personality. The ad campaign was shot under the Williamsburg Bridge in New York. Menswear for ladies always seems to be a trend amongst fashion people. With Cara’s latest look, androgyny could spark other designers to do the same.
I love shoes, probably accumulating 150 plus pairs. I’d be surprised if I don’t own close to 200 pairs of shoes including sneakers, heels, boots, and flats. However, I don’t spend my days sitting around counting my shoes. Lately, I’ve been buying more tennis shoes. With all the limited edition collaborations and bright colorways, I’m always adding new sneakers to my closet. Kate Spade Saturday and New Balance are collaborating on several pairs of running/ workout shoes. The collection will feature two styles of shoes in five different colors and prints. Adorned in the signature Kate Spade Saturday yellow and prints, these sneakers will run for $95. All five shoes release February 2nd, but you can pre-order them now on the New Balance website.
Old school sneakers are making a comeback more than ever right now. Nike brought back the Huarache style shoe that debuted in the 90s, which started out as a running shoe. The Bronzine model is a gold colorway coming in ladies sizes. This shoe has already made an appearance in Europe, retailing at about $100. There is no word yet as to whether or not the Bronzine model will be released here in the states. Mixing street wear and high fashion with everyday style can be effortlessly chic. The sneaker trend in high fashion has been seen on various runways. Definitely hoping these gold shoes get sold in the US. Stay tuned for a US release.

Founder of NastyGal, Sophia Amoruso, has stepped down from the CEO position at her company. The #GirlBoss started selling vintage clothing on eBay in 2006 under the name NastyGal, later turning that into her own company. While she will still shape the brand and oversee things, Sheree Waterson has been appointed the new CEO of NastyGal. Does the Girl Boss have bigger things in store or was the CEO position too much at once? Read the letter on the NastyGal blog from the boss herself.
Branching out from the Stella McCartney for Adidas line comes StellaSport. The line is aimed at younger, teenage girls. Accessories, activewear, and footwear are all to be included in this collection. StellaSport launches February 15th, and will be sold by TopShop, Nordstrom, and Adidas. Items will much cheaper than the original line, ranging from $20 to $100. I’m quite excited to see this line and try it out seeing is that it’s incredibly affordable. The colors in this collection are super fun and colorful, and I will definitely post some looks once purchased.
In honor of #ShoesdayTuesday, let’s talk about the newest collection from Valentino. While I’m not a fan of flats in general, I would totally splurge on these rainbow rockstud flats. Heels are so much more appealing to me. They’re more elegant and obviously make you taller, not that I need to be at 5’8″. The new spring 2015 collection from Valentino features a striped rainbow colored design. The flats will cost you $1145. Of course, there are handbags, heels, clothing, and espadrilles in this colorful collection. I’m always running around in bright colors and crazy outfits, so these are right up my alley. Even though I will most likely have to wait until these are on sale, I vow to add a pair of rockstuds to my closet in the near future. This shoe is a staple, in any color, to every fashionistas closet.
