If for some reason you missed the news, Christian Louboutin, inspired by the signature rouge color of his famous soles, has officially entered the beauty business. The iconic shoe designer launched a collection of nail polishes last Friday and we were invited to get in on the action. As soon as we reached the top floor of The Nomad Hotel, we stepped into Monsieur Louboutin’s French atelier, or at least that’s what it felt like. We were greeted by a table filled with inspiration for the beauty collection, including a few new shoe styles made exclusively for the launch. Take a peak at our experience below and shop the new collection at Hirshleifers on August 6th!
As soon as I saw Giuseppe Zanotti’s latest ad campaign with one of my favorite statement shoes ever, I knew I had to recreate it.
And so I did.
I won’t ask you who wore it best, but I do have to tell you about the greatest trousers ever. A good pair of trousers are hard to come by, but this pair from 3.1 Phillip Lim are really all you’ll ever need from a pair of trousers. They’re somewhat high-waisted, but not too high, and are the perfect combination of a skinny leg and slouchy silhouette which hit just right above the ankle. They’re perfect for all your business professional needs, but I would even wear them with a button down (the one pictured above is from The Row) and/or simple tank with a pair of killer heels for a night out. Cue: these Giuseppe Zanotti’s.
As quoted in Boston Common magazine, when designing jewelry, Maud Cabot always asks herself “Would Steven (Tyler) wear this? Would Cher?” Cabot is deeply inspired by her favorite rock-n-roll musicians of the 70s and 80s, and like a dream come true, front man of Aerosmith Steven Tyler just happens to be one of her biggest supporters. Tyler is often photographed in her designs and has even commissioned some pieces himself. Yep, definitely a dream come true.
In more recent dreams turned into reality, Maud’s “Tommy” ring, one of my favorites, was recently photographed adorning the finger of supermodel Kate Moss in Vogue.
Maud’s collection of fine jewelry are definitely statement pieces. They are bold and strong, but also have a delicate, rugged feel to them. Below are my favorites in store now.
Maud jewelry, Margiela cardigan, Isabel Marant by Olivier Peoples sunglasses. All available at Hirshleifers now.
The latest trend to bubble in the world of sneakers is definitely the white sneaker, but most notably Adidas’ original Stan Smith sneakers. Adidas relaunched the old-school classics earlier this year and collaborated with Raf Simons, but I think it was Ms. Phoebe Philo that grabbed the fashion world’s attention when she took a bow at her show sporting them.
Ever since then, they’ve been receiving some serious attention. Not surprising though… their extreme wearability aside, she does tend to have that affect on people. They’re the perfect summer sneaker to wear casually with jeans or even pair back to your favorite summer dress (my personal favorite) to get that effortlessly cool factor. And when it starts to get colder, they’re also the perfect shoe to contrast against your dark winter wardrobe. Get inspired below and be on the look out for our delivery coming in late December. And if you’re really eager like us, feel free to e-mail our personal shoppers to be put on a pre-order list at firstname.lastname@example.org.

There’s something about the intersecting horizontal and vertical multicolored lines that keep the traditional tartan pattern fresh. Plaid has been around for so long, without ever really leaving or getting old, which is why I have dubbed it a closet staple and not a trend. You can dress it up, you can dress it down, you can wear it in the winter, you can wear it in the summer. You can wear it as a shirt, but it can also double as a light jacket. You can wrap it around your waist… and, well, you get it. We’re mad for plaid, and even madder for the selection currently in store.
Can you really blame us? Pictured above are pieces from Boy by Band of Outsiders, Isabel Marant, Chrome Hearts, and The Row all available now. And if you need a little inspiration to get you going, the street-style stars below should do just the trick.
