At 15, we were probably wearing awkward hand-me-downs and using the earnings of our minimum wage jobs to buy trendy (and now embarrassing) clothes at the mall—but not Willow Smith. The young rapper has just been announced as the new face of Chanel during their Paris Fashion Week runway show.
Chanel. Just saying the word increases your swankiness levels by 63%. This revolutionary line broke the norms of the fashion industry and is still blessing us today with its iconic and incredibly timeless pieces. [aka the brand is over 100 years old and we’re still wearing it].

Icona Pop said it best – and although the phrase might be tried and true…we really do
love “olive” it. Heh heh. read more…
Our last batch of fun/fab/fantastic NYC street style had us exploring different neighbourhoods – and from Williamsburg to Central Park, we met &
gret…greeted(?) locals, who, draped in Chanel, Alexander Wang and Issey Miyake were looking as #fashionable as always. From ankle-skimming shapes to mesh galore, our sartorially-satisfied hearts will forever belong to you, New York. See you next time!!! *insert all the sad emojis here* read more…
A brief taste of spring had us wearing flowers in our hair… well, sporting sunglasses and spring layers at the very least. But you know what they say about those April showers!
Check out these urban dwellers, who still manage to keep it ~stylish~ in somber weather, stream their song picks, and turn your rainy frown upside down. Now let’s do our rain, rain, go away dance and move on to May flowers. read more…
Sure, the collections are the main attraction. BUT CHECK OUT THESE CRAZY RUNWAYS! read more…
