Fall 2014 Round Up

March 21, 2014

Can you say groovy? This Fall it’s a blast from the past, as everything from studded velvets, Mary Janes, GoGo boots and psychedelic prints bring the comeback we’ve been waiting for.

Dries Van Noten, inspired by Bridget Riley’s Op Art work, will debut a very ‘60s psychedelic look—complete with chunky Mary Janes, colorful swirls and patterns in every look.

Saint Laurent opted to go with a more ‘60s glam rock look—boasting GoGo boots and sparkly jackets accenting velvet dresses and studded sweaters. Even a print featuring hand guns on their signature blouse made this Fall’s lineup.

Have a look at some of our favorite groovy looks from the Fall2014 collections!

Featured Designer: Thom Browne

March 17, 2014

The infamous Thom Browne began his career designing bespoke clothing for men and expanded his line into a full ready-to-wear collection by 2004. Browne’s style, deeply rooted in American culture and inspired by the icons of the late 1950’s and early ‘60s, updates those classic silhouettes with unexpected proportions. In 2011, he launched his first women’s collection and has been impressing each season since. Browne’s use of custom fabrics and astounding attention to detail turns heads on the runway, and embodies elegance and edginess in the showroom. Each and every piece in this season’s collection commands attention, while awarding its bearer an undeniable sense of importance.

For the love of shoes

March 07, 2014

Like many of you, when I travel I am often stricken with the seemingly insoluble question of which shoes to pack. They’re bulky, heavy, and regrettably important. Finding the right mixture of versatility and style is crucial no matter where your feet take you. This is why, currently, I rely on a pair of comfortable tennis shoes, a classic flat, and a versatile heel as my fallback combo. With this lot, I’m rarely left in need as I go from daytime adventuring to evening soirees. Here are some of our favorite two-in-one spring shoes that will leave you with more space in your luggage for that extra handbag or the new jacket you just can’t leave behind.

Who says black and white is reserved for the creatively deficient. There’s more to this fashion combo than the lack and combination of every color. Some of the greatest have taken on this cursory palate and turned it into a full-fledged life breathing beacon of class. Everything from Audrey Hepburn to the B&W cookie, Charlie Chaplin and back. It’s classic and effortless, but hardly dull if done right. As the convergence of colors that is Spring approaches, we’ll be sure to put a few of black and whites aside for those who aim to stick out. Check out some of our new arrivals below and contact us for more details!

Black & White

Saint Laurent pumps, Balenciaga jackets, Rupert Sanderson sandals, Saint Laurent handbag, Jason Wu fringe dress, Jasnis Provisor necklace, Saint Laurent lip blouse, Balenciaga skirt. All available at Julianne.
