All the cool girls from the best 1980s and 1990s movies wore suits. In Heathers it was a colour-coded way of life, and for Cher Horowitz, the power suit was a staple in her amazing technologically advanced closet. Everyone, and we mean everyone, knows her classic yellow plaid mini-skirt blazer combo.

Enter Fall 2012.

Vancouver shop notes: Blanket statement

Comments

Aw by Andrea Wong

Photography by Carlo Mendoza (styling by Breanna Gow for judyinc.com)

Breaking away from a decade of designing for the fast-fashion industry, Vancouverite Andrea Wong has launched her own handmade accessories line, Aw by Andrea Wong (awbyandreawong.com). “It pairs my two passions—sourcing vintage and creating things with my hands,” she says. Bag one of her bright blanket totes, crafted from reclaimed serapes and leather belts, for the beach (shown, $165 each, at One of A Few, 354 Water St., 604-605-0685, oneofafew.com, and Much & Little, 2541 Main St., 604-709-9034, muchandlittle.com).

Cost per wear: 10 fully styled affordable outfits that make a pricey PS1 a totally reasonable purchase!

Cost per wear: PS1

Photography by Carlo Mendoza. Modeled by Marta/Ford Models. On-figure styling by Richard Autio. Hair and makeup by Margot Keith.

This one is for all you designer diehards out there—the ones who would risk their rent on the latest Riccardo Tisci masterpiece. You know what it’s like to go without the many, only to behold the fashionable few. But how do you justify that one outlandish designer purchase? We’re here to help. We’ve done the math, and come up with enough affordable outfits to justify that one gotta-have-it-now item.

Case in point: Proenza Schouler’s latest PS1. Despite the designers’ intention to create just the opposite, Jack and Laz created a beast of a must-have in the classic style back in ’08, and its Spring 2012 iteration has us seeing stars (or rather, tropical flowers). At a cool $1,125 for the Pochette model, we figure you’ve gotta wear this guy quite a few times to make it work, and being bright yellow, that ain’t an easy feat. Working out to just under $113 a wear, we’ve styled 10 full and unique looks on Marta that make the PS1 proud.

Have a peek. Foam at the mouth. And then be happy that no other single item in the gallery costs anywhere close to $1,125.

Prada’s got a brand new It bag, but you can’t have it

Comments

Considering our love for everything Prada, we’ve got to admit that it kind of stings that the brand’s latest handbag offering won’t be making it to the Great White North. The revamped take on the Italian fashion house’s traditional “hunting bags” comes in five covetable colours: red, orange, purple, black and our personal favourite, a stunning Pacific blue.

The classic yet contemporary style’s gold hardware detailing and saturated pops of colour will undoubtedly make them easy sells for the Italian label. Though we won’t be able to get our hands on the new bags at home, they will be available at select European, U.S., Hong Kong and United Arab Emirates stores this June, so if you’re in those far-off neighbourhoods, be sure to bring one home for us to ogle.

From Nanette Lepore’s neon bags to Nicole Miller’s eye-popping print dresses, ’tis the season to turn up the lights. Acid-bright accessories, like these mini cross-body bags from H&M ($20 each, hm.com), take an ensemble from ho-hum to high-watt. More into monochrome? Stick with classic white. Read more »
