Cosabella has teamed up with the Sex and the City movie (due out in May) to create four lingerie lines based on the characters in the HBO series. And, since it seems that I'm Carrie, I suppose I should be browsing my collection...
In a poll on one of HBO's Sex and the City Web pages, 50 percent of women believe they are most like Carrie, 21 percent consider themselves to be most like Charlotte, with Mirandas numbering 17 percent and Samanthas picking up 12 percent of the tally. (I thought I was Charlotte, but Tickle swears I'm Carrie, so I'm not sure where that leaves me.)
Japanese designer Chie Imai introduced what she calls "ecological fur" to the fashion world in Tokyo on April 15. The fur is a blend of polyester made with chinchilla and mink.( Animal rights activists insist that the term "ecological" is just a ploy to distract from the cruelty of the fur industry.)
The garments range in price from $12,000 for a mink bolero to $83,000 for a chinchilla cape. Imai says fur is ecological because it can be worn for generations and "returns to the earth" as organic material (thus causing no pollution).
This chic bag evokes a fishbowl, with goldfish shapes appliquéd on both sides. It has comfortable handles and an interior hook for keys. Made of blue cotton linen with an orange crease-resistant cotton twill interior and leatherette accents. Hand-wash only.
Your pants are the ideal length in heels but drag the ground when you wear flats? Problem solved!
Zakkerz are fabric strips with magnets in the end, shortening your pants instantly. Roll to the desired length, place two strips around each fold, secure it, then hit the road (with no more tripping over your pants legs).
Valentino began painting the city (Rome, that is) red this past weekend while celebrating his 45th year in fashion. On July 6, he began a retrospective at Rome's Ara Pacis museum. On July 7, he presented his couture collection for winter 2007-2008 in a medieval convent near the Vatican. That night there was a gala ball in a Roman park, where he launched his latest scent, Rock 'n' Rose.
