Last Year’s CFDA Winners, This Year’s Gap Collaborators
Gap’s Design Edition was started three years ago to help introduce up-and-coming, CFDA winning designers to a larger audience. This year’s team—Alexander Wang, accessories designer Albertus Swanepoel, and the duo behind Vena Cava—took on the challenge of reinventing the classic khaki. And the results couldn’t have been more, well, cool. There were high-waisted, pleated pants I’m dying to roll up and wear with killer heels, an easy, everyday fedora, and possibly the cutest zippered dress of all time. These pieces have already hit the web, but to thumb through all of the limited edition offerings—including some pretty irresistible motorcycle jackets—you’ll have to venture out to the nearest Gap.
Lots of love,

Leather is one of spring’s biggest trends, and it is here to stay. Designers like Alexander Wang, Derek Lam and many others showed leather in their recent Fall 09 shows.
Today, I shared with you an edgy way to beautify your eyes. Here’s a way to take that look and make a bold statement by incorporating a leather dress like the one Kate Beckinsale was recently photographed in.
What’s also great about this look is that if you simply add a belt to your leather dress, you can accentuate your waist. If you want a more toned down look, I’d go for leather pants or a leather skirt. Choose soft loose fabrics to help complement your look, like sweaters, t-shirts or jersey tops. So infuse your wardrobe with some new leather pieces but choose styles that flatter your figure and add a bit of edginess to create a look that’s trendy and yet still practical!
