The white shirt is the same as elegance, exclusivity and classy. If you look up the meaning of the SHIRT is " A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body. Originally an undergarment worn exclusively by men". The white shirt is an icon and a "must" part in a suit of men. Also the tailoring industry was so important and a essential for high-class men for ages. 

However the culture changes everyday and now you could find the shirt like this (see the picture below, the model is wearing a shirt by Guiëm)

b2ap3_thumbnail_12.pngb2ap3_thumbnail_18.pngb2ap3_thumbnail_22.png

Along the history there were some women that started to change the meaning of wearing a shirt as a symbol of independence and to rise the power of women in the real life. One of them was Coco Chanel in 1920 that made popular this cloth making it sexy and attractive. After this years ladies started to borrow the shirts of their fathers to combine with jeans but only as casual and informal outfits.

In 1952 showed up the "Bettina" by Givenchy with a classy touch and after the "shirt" disappeared for some years until 70´s when it became popular again thank to the films and some designers of that years.

Does not matter what social class you come from or if you want to look casual or elegant... the white shirt is always in and is an icon inside fashion. Carolina Herrera has made a line called "The white shirt" as a tribute to this icon in the history of women that means freedom.

Have you hear about anything about "oversize" trend? Is the perfect time to use the "shirt" of your boyfriend and combine what you like the most. We love that trend and encourage all the women to use men clothing in a sexy way.

Hey all you fashion lovers! Hope everyone is keeping up with this New York heat! A little brutal? Yes. But DO NOT WORRY...because I have just the perfect fashion fix for that: Costalmel’s graphic t-shirts. Nothing screams summer fashion like breezy t-shirts with prints that embody the summer feel. These urban street style pieces are a staple for a summer wardrobe.

madeinspaindesigners 

Their current collection includes short-sleeve and sleeveless t-shirts for both men and women with prints including my favorite summer fruit, PINEAPPLES (yum), florals, and Mexican skulls. They mix these fun prints with j’adore illustrations that are not only eye catching but also jaw dropping.

 

Made out of 100% cotton, these easy-breezy shirts can uphold the brutal summer heat but can also be transitioned into the fall. There is nothing better to have than versatile pieces that you can style year around to fit the changing seasons. The base color of all of Costalemel’s shirts come in different shades of white (depending on the style), which cannot scream STAPLE PIECE enough. The fact that the actual t-shirt is a shade of white with a colored illustration, makes it that much easier to just pair it with about anything.

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_0816.JPG

 

REMEMBER: It’s the summer, so have fun playing with colors and mixing different prints within your tops and bottoms. Fashion is supposed to be fearless so go get them!

One of the biggest fashion do’s of the past few seasons has been to mix streetwear with couture. Its been seen all over the catwalks and it is still prevailing. We’ve seen it in collections like Chanel, where dresses are mixed with sneakers and in Kanye West’s Paris debut where he swore by it. It brings the higher and the lower end of fashion into one, which I think is great. I am a huge fan of the trend and think it is super fun. It brings out an urban, effortless edge out of all of us.

Posted by on in EVENTS NYC

Happy Monday everyone! So today’s post is going to be a little different. Today, we are going to explore a part of New York City instead of exploring a trend! So this week we are going to explore the ever so chic and hip SoHo. New York is broken up into all these small, ‘mini’ boroughs that each have their own personality. Just as a cool fact, the names of all these areas refer to their boundaries so SoHo stands for “South of Houston {street}”.

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_9079.jpg

SoHo, out of many other characteristics it intakes, is known for its many art galleries, variety of shopping and the trendy people that occupy it.

FOOD

First, let us start with WHERE TO EAT! If I am good at anything it is knowing where the best food lies. 

For American food, you MUST try the Mercer Kitchen, located on 99 Prince Street. A little pricey and infused with some Japanese culture, your meal is always uber fresh and full of flavor.

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8568.JPG

For the best French treats, one has to go visit Balthazaar, located on 80 Spring Street. I have yet to try their entrees but the bakery portion of this spot is AMAZING. Once you step into it, you instantly feel as if you left the concrete jungle and stepped into a Parisian escape. If my father has taught me anything it is to never skip on a sweet after a meal and this is the perfect place to fix your sweet tooth!

Next up is Isola Trattoria and Crudo Bar at the Mondrian Hotel. This is by far one of my favorite places to eat. Decked in gorgeous chandeliers and dimmed lights, this place has the best ambiance. It is a foodies dream in there. 

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_0217.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_0213.JPG

I cannot forget to mention Laduree, located on 398 W Broadway. If you know anything about me it is that I am utterly obsessed with macarons and this is my #1 place for them. Their SoHo location is relatively new and they opened a restaurant with it, so that is on my things to do!

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8689.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8688.jpg

Now, if you recall, I work in SoHo where I help manage PR so I am never able to have a full sit down meal. So where do I go? Gourmet Garage, located on 489 Broome Street. This marketplace has a little bit of everything…and the best part? You can sit on the steps outside of it to enjoy the food you snabbed and people watch! So much fun! Another place similar to Gourmet Garage is Dean&Deluca, located on 560 Broadway. Both these places are awesome for quick groceries or a quick bite. Food is always great and they even offer organic and vegan produce! Both of these places are great for tourists visiting the area because you can grab something quick and everyone will be happy!

 

TIP: When out to eat with friends, the best thing to do is order a few small plates to share, that way you share and taste more! This way, you get the full gist of the restaurant and really get to know what they have to offer. 

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_9782.JPG

 

SHOP

Now, lets move onto WHERE TO SHOP! SoHo has a store for everyone. You can find affordable chain stores to high-end luxury boutiques. So, whatever you are looking for….SoHo has!

 

If you are looking for a variety of shops, you should go straight to Broadway. You will find stores like TopShop, Zara, Club Monaco, and even Bloomingdales! Now, if you are looking for some upscale stops, you have to explore beyond Broadway and head into the many streets that surround it such as Spring St (where you can find Chanel), Wooster St (where you can peak into Barneys and Tibi), and Greene St. (where you can find Saint Laurent, Chloe and Y3).

Cool, independent boutiques surround the area also including the Birkin Bar, which is a super cool consignment store filled with the best Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermes, and Balenciaga…to name a few! Another one of my favorites is Opening Ceremony where you can find cool and new upcoming as well as established labels and you will most likely see someone famous!

THE PEOPLE

When in Soho, you will definitely see all types of people. If you head over to Broadway, you will see mainly tourists who are on one of their many stops from their tour bus and ready to do some shopping at the biggest chain stores. You will hear about five different languages at once when walking, haha! If you head over to the side streets, such as the ones I mentioned above, you should be prepared to find people walking with Saint Laurent Bags and some gym gear on. Just as a side, if you are ever in the mood for a great workout head to The Bar Method, Soul Cycle or Equinox! You will always see a cool car parked outside of one of the many shops and can even spot an a-lister.

 

TRENDS

Because of the different types of people that enlist in SoHo, the outfits and tends you will spot are endless. You will definitely see a lot of people rocking gym gear, who will potentially make you feel guilty for not being as proactive as them. Be prepared to also see a lot of lowing dresses with minimal accessories and people rocking the coolest eyewear. Booties are a year around thing in SoHo where they are paired with shorts and a hat in the summer and over bearing coats in the winter. SoHo is a place where you can really let your creative mind speak.  Wear what you want and be a trend setter because you will most likely be setting yourself up for success!

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_9970.jpg

ACTIVITIES

You will never run out of things to do around this place. Known for their many art galleries and cool clubs, SoHo is one of the top places for a good night out! For art galleries check out place like Pop International Gallery, Terrain Gallery and Martin Lawrence Galleries. You can always stop in for a quick peak at their current expo and it is almost always free. It is a nice little break from your everyday routine so if you are ever in the area, run!

Now if you want to have a night out on the town, I have a few suggestions! You can head over to the rooftop at the Mondrian Hotel where the vibe is always chill and the views are breathtaking. SoHo is best known for their small bars so enjoy a night of bar hopping around this area!

Pavan Bahl from Open Source Fashion

b2ap3_thumbnail_uno_20140707-152013_1.jpg 

Tell us a bit about Open Source Fashion and its main objective.

Open Source Fashion is a community of helpful innovators working with(in) fashion and retail.  We focus on educating our peers and finding collaborative opportunities amongst our community members.  

On July 21st, we launch our new platform which will focus on the Who, What, & Where for our audience.  

Who you need to meet: Profiles of approved creatives, developers, strategists, and technology solutions that you can leverage to grow your business.

What you need to know:  Our educational content that we will be publishing from a community of over forty expert contributors.

Where you should be:  A listing of worthwhile in-person opportunities in your area (starting with NYC and DC)

 

So, Open Source Fashion is all about networking. What is the reason why you focused in this? Why would you say networking is such a vital tool in the fashion industry?

The business landscape has dramatically shifted over the past five years.  There are now even more moving parts that go into building and sustaining a successful business. Many of these “moving parts” that have become vital components of business (omni channel retailing, social media strategy, big data, fit tech, etc.) were unheard of just a handful of years back.  It is nearly impossible to be an expert on all of these moving parts.  I felt as though if we, as entrepreneurs...learn and supported one another, we would be able to succeed as a group.

Competition is dead and collaboration is the future.  Businesses must align strategically with one another in order to execute effectively.  Since this process relies on relationships,  you need to go out and find folks that you connect well with...as individuals and professionals.  OS Fashion creates environments that are conducive to uncovering collaborative opportunities amongst like minded individuals.  

b2ap3_thumbnail_tres_20140707-152017_1.jpg

How did you come up with the idea of creating this meetup community in the first place?

A few years back I started developing a consumer focused brand.  I was selling products to a handful of retail boutiques between New York City and Boston.  I quickly realized that I did not have the proper background or education to effectively develop a successful and long lasting brand.  

At the time, the emergence of digital technologies had just started to give smaller brands an opportunity to compete for visibility in a global marketplace.  I started the OS Fashion Meetup as a way to gain the right education in regards to these platforms and new strategies.  The only way I was able to attract the right educators was by gathering an audience for them to speak to.  

 

What kind of individuals attend your meetings?

Our events are open to helpful innovators that are actively working with or within fashion or retail.  This can be anywhere from designers, retailers, and brands to technologists and service providers that lend to the industry.

b2ap3_thumbnail_cinco_20140707-151954_1.jpg

 

How many networking events do you organize per year and around which topics?

We have moved away from our quarterly meetups, to bi-annual conferences.  OS Fashion produces the Freestyle Fashion Conference every 6 months in New York City.  The conference focuses heavily on education and collaboration.  We are extending this program to Washington, DC and Miami, FL within the next 9 months!

Each program hosts fifteen classes, all taught by professionals that have a very specific domain expertise as it lends towards business development within fashion, retail, and related technologies.  Visit freestyleconference.com for class information - it really spans the spectrum of biz dev.

 

What’s next for Open Source Fashion? Any new plans in the horizon?

We would like to partner with good people across the globe to bring the Freestyle Fashion Conference to various cities.  An ideal partner would be an individual or team that already cultivates community within the Fashion + Technology space and is motivated to extend them exceptional value.  Ultimately we see Open Source Fashion bridging individual markets so that innovators in various regions can access new markets by leveraging OS Fashion communities worldwide.

 

For now, we are focused on expanding the conference program, and preparing to relaunch our platform in July.

 

Any new trend in the fashion industry that you would pinpoint? 

The acceptance and adoption of technology is not only a trend, it’s a revolution in the industry.  Businesses small and large are integrating and experimenting with a myriad of solutions to keep ahead of the curve.  

NY Fashion Tech Lab serves as a great example of how retailers are making a priority to work with startup tech solutions to facilitate their growth.  My guess is that NYFT Lab will serve as a model for businesses globally that are looking to bridge the communication gap between innovation and enterprise.

b2ap3_thumbnail_cuatro_20140707-152015_1.jpg

What would you say about Spanish fashion industry? Do you see a bright future for Spanish designers in the US? 

I won’t bullshit, I don’t have a firm pulse on the actual fashion that drives this industry (i’m more of a solutions person).  What I do see is that the US market is more than ever before, distinguishing themselves through fashion.  From colors to cuts, the “average” consumer is more knowledgable, curious, and better informed in regards to international culture / trends.  Because of this, there’s an open door for international designers to breakthrough in the US market.

 

And last, but not least. All emerging designers are young entrepreneurs and you are an entrepreneur yourself… Some words of wisdom to share with them?

Read.  Know about...and take advantage of tools that can streamline your processes.  Do not focus on anything that is not within your core competencies.  Find strategic partners.   Try and make forward progress every day.
