Jacket Fashion As Architecture | Jacket Society–moncler sale

JACKETS AS ARCHITECTURE – THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TWO FIELDS Before I decided to go into fashion design and apply to Otis College of Art and Design,online fashion store I was seriously considering going into architecture for a while,moncler kinder but at the end fashion won over.  I have always had an interest in architecture and I truly believe there is a connection between creative people who are drawn to both fields.  There are a lot of parallels between the two,moncler bambino from designing shapes and working with proportions that need to work together to the outside aesthetic of materials that need to be pleasing to the eye,moncler jumper I feel the two fields are related in many ways. That is why when I came across this article about USC 5th year architecture students working on this project called “Truth in Making,moncler coats an Architectural Inquiry”,kids moncler I felt like I had to share it with you all.  I will not explain any more since I am including the whole article and the video for you to see here. I hope you enjoy it and let me know your thoughts on the connection between the two fields.

Its Not Fashion – It’s Architecture – by Allison Engel

The USC School of Architecture students learn the fine points of manufacturing,moncler jacket sale construction,moncler gilet and problem-solving as they craft wearable creations with unusual materials. Look at this project the A jacket made from thumbtacks and caulk. Another created entirely from industrial zippers. Look at this spiky fabric composed of kitchen matches. How about a bumpy fabric of 12,moncler cap244 pencil erasers,moncler jakke sewn one by one in a colorful chevron pattern? These were a few of the solutions that fifth-year USC School of Architecture students devised while creating unique Mao jackets in a studio called “Truth in Making, An Architectural Inquiry.” Fourteen jackets were displayed in an exhibition March 7, and the project attracted off-campus attention, including that of Frances Anderton, host of KCRW’s Design & Architecture program and blog. The assignment from Associate Professor Lee Olvera was clear and brief: Select two materials maximum. Experiment with joinery, creating a skin or “fabric,” testing all potential material properties. After two weeks of speculating about how the materials will perform, select your materials. Once committed, you may not switch. Print out the studio-selected pattern for a Mao jacket, chosen for its conformity and lack of detail. Construct a wearable jacket. You have five weeks, start to finish. “They must think with their hands,” said Olvera, who has given the assignment annually since 2012. “There’s no hiding behind a drawing or a diagram or just waving your arms and saying ‘it’s going to be beautiful.’ If it won’t work, it won’t work. “It’s not Project Runway,” he said. “It’s an exploration of program and function. In architecture, we’re called upon to design the skins of buildings all the time. This project infuses our intuitive skills of artistry and aesthetics with the rigor of analytical and performance-based material experimentation to create innovative working solutions.” Class materials from the hardware store? Past students responded with unlikely materials (orange ear plugs, crayons melted into new shapes, woven rubber bands), and this year’s students continued that tradition, using copper grounding wire, acrylic paint and – appropriately enough – 5,500 round metal pins with Chairman Mao’s face printed on them. (Student Yimeng Wang ordered them from China.) Several came up with time-consuming recipes for turning their raw materials into fabrics. Corey Koczarski started with Rockite, a substance used for patching cracks in concrete. He cast Rockite in silicon molds, experimenting with thicknesses and profile to come up a shape that could be reproduced 4,948 times and linked together. Lillian Lin had no fewer than six steps for turning artist’s gel into the skin of her jacket. She colored the clear gel with fabric paint, spread it on a sheet, scored lines on the surface, dried it, wove the gel into strips, then ironed them flat before shaping her front, back and sleeve pieces. The hours the undergraduates spent in their Watt Hall studio stretched late into the night, early mornings and weekends. Snags developed. Nick Tedesco discovered that it took about 10 hours to hand-sew a square foot of his colored pencil erasers. “Getting the sleeves on was a nightmare,” he said. “You are mentally fatigued working for hours and hours. The erasers rip and tear. “If something looks good on paper and make sense, you can’t be sure it will always work. But you problem-solve. I think a lot of architecture is like that.” Yoonji “Angie” Nam’s unexpected outcome was that the acrylic paint she arranged in circle patterns on Teflon baking sheets took weeks and weeks to dry. When the jackets were displayed March 7, hers appeared as a vest. “I have sleeves but they are not dry,” she explained, brushing white paint from her hair and face. “I think to dry the inside will take one month.” Some surprises were happy ones. Tamar Partamian, who laboriously wove the strands from seven cassette tapes, found that the resulting fabric was much silkier and shinier than expected. “When you see a small individual unit, it’s different from seeing the whole,” she said. Sean Miller, whose thumbtack jacket fell apart days before the exhibition (the caulk wouldn’t hold the smooth metal surface), called the process a struggle. “I think I did learn more being this risky, this extreme and having it fail,” Miller said. “I really pushed myself and learned more than if I picked a safer choice and was more successful. You also have the more difficult and more valuable conversations about your work.” At the exhibition, the designers happily spent hours explaining their projects to onlookers. Several tried on their jackets, proving they could be worn. Calvin Lee, whose lightweight garment of crocheted electronics wire had the most tailoring details (four working pockets with flaps, a pointed collar and buttons), said he was considering wearing his jacket to graduation.

My Favorite Looks From The 2014 Paris Fall Fashion Week | Jacket Society–moncler jackets

Over the  last few years there have been a lot of people questioning if Paris is still the capital of fashion with some calling New York or London the new capital.  But for me with out doubt Paris will always be the capital of fashion,moncler shoes this does not mean that there is more talent coming out of this city on a yearly basis,moncler sale it’s just that the history of fashion is Paris.  Haute Couture started in Paris and the fact is there are more high end designers and fashion houses in Paris than any other city in the world.  So for me,moncler milano that means some of the most influential shows are still coming out of Paris. Here are my favorite looks from the 2014 Paris fall fashion week.

There are so many shows and so much talent being shown in Paris,moncler gamme rouge it makes it very difficult to pick the best shows.  I have narrowed it down to my six of my favorites again based on womens jackets,moncler men blazers and other womens outerwear influences.

Saint Laurent

Hedi Silmane managed to show a fresh and young 60’s looking collection that still stayed true to the Yves Saint Laurent look especially when everything managed to fade back to black so perfectly.  Hedi showed models in school girl English tweed capes and tartan plaids by day and all black glittery looks by night.  60’s A line silhouettes with knee high boots,moncler womens jacket furs,moncler jumper beaded frocks,moncler uk chains and sequence with leather being the main his influences from what I could see.

Haider Ackerman

In the last few years Haider Ackerman has become one of my favorite designers.  He has a definite point of view that he sticks to which is a spare,moncler london modern and clean look with a touch of masculinity in its tailoring.  He showed lots of layers topped with jackets and blazers with skinny python and leather pants.  One of his main patterns being Hounds tooth which he carried forward from last season.

Dior

Like usual Raf Simons showed us he is the master of mixing colors.  I loved all the bold and bright primary colored sleeveless coats and outerwear.  There were corset lace ups to cinch in waistlines and show off a woman’s curves which is a nice change from all the oversized silhouettes at the other shows.  He managed to show a beautiful masculine inspired show but feminized just the right way with bright color and details.

Lanvin

Alber Elbaz  did a dark and fierce collection but in a really chic way.  There were lots of tweeds with frayed hems and raw edges and ruffles and asymmetrical hems.  He loved using lots of fur and fuzzy textures,moncler paris pleated and regular leather, long tassel fringes and jet beads and beautiful dramatic neckwear.

Dries Van Noten

There were lots of graphic stripes and curves and patterns at this show with a little bit of Art Deco influence.  Big floral appliqués in reds and oranges and copper and silver prints were put on coats and dress and skirts.  Lots of embroideries and embellishments and big flower pins were decorating the garments.

Maison Martin Margiela

Margiela used beautiful menswear British tweeds and herringbones but feminized them with belting them and using pagoda shoulders.  A lot of the menswear tailoring was chopped up in unexpected ways to give it an interesting new look.  There was also a touch of red thrown into all the beautiful neutral colors and black.  Also the house’s famous white cotton stitches were replaced with iconic Harris Tweed Logo.

Wearing The Soleil Jacket For Mothers Day Dinner–moncler jas


Wearing The Soleil Jacket For Mothers Day Dinner

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I had a very busy weekend because I had a trunk show at a beautiful Mother’s Day luncheon on Saturday in Studio City where I got to display and sell my jackets,moncler jacket jewelry and scarves. It was a lot of work,moncler gilet but a lot of fun at the same time,cheap moncler jackets I am going to post all the details and pictures about it on Friday.

Today I am going to tell you how I spent my Mother’s Day with my husband and son. In the past they have always planned a wonderful lunch or brunch by the beach for me. Unfortunately this years plans were a little different because my son is in the middle of his final exams at USC and it was going to be too difficult to plan a full day outing. So this years plan was to go for a nice dinner locally,moncler jackets after spending the day at home working on his studies,moncler outlet uk this would give him a break,moncler soldes but not take too much out of his day.

It actually all worked out perfectly as I spent the day relaxing from being on my feet all day at Saturday’s trunk show. So around 4:30 my husband Tim and I headed out to Pasadena to take pictures for the blog before meeting Stefen around 5:30 for dinner at Smitty’s Grill,moncler gamme rouge which is a very nice steak and seafood restaurant in Pasadena.

During the last few weeks,moncler hoodie the weather in Los Angeles has been quite a bit cooler and we even had some rain last week,mens moncler jackets which is strange for us in May,moncler jassen especially when we have not had a fall or winter season at all this year. Anyway Mothers day ended up being a beautiful sunny day with perfect temperatures, so I decided to wear one of my favorite wrap dresses that I have had for a long time.

It is an elegant printed dress made from georgette and I really wanted to wear something feminine for Mother’s Day. It also just so happened that our Soleil jacket, which is a beautiful gold color, picked up the gold part of the print in this dress perfectly, so it was a no brainer to include the jacket. The Soleil jacket was a big hit on my Saturday Mother’s Day trunk show and I only have a few pieces left before we are sold out. It is on sale right now on our web site here.

I added my favorite vintage Moroccan necklace and my go to gladiator sandals to make the whole look more modern and current.

We had a wonderful time, the food was delicious and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Mother’s Day.

How was your Mother’s Day and don’t’ forget to let me know your thoughts on my look?

My Favorite Looks From Milan Fashion Week Fall 2015

Milan is always about mixing beautiful tailoring and workmanship with ultra feminine,moncler kids romantic and sexy looks.  The designers really know how to mix just the right amount of masculine and feminine to get the formula right.  Personally I have always loved this concept and every season I look forward to seeing all the innovative looks from amazing Italian designers.

This season was not any different and there are many beautiful looks to get inspired by.  But before I get into the top trends and looks I personally spotted,moncler womens coats I have to mention the highlight of the Milan fashion week for me and many others was the Dolce & Gabbana show.  Not so much for their innovative looks but for the show’s concept.  You see their entire show was about honoring mothers,kids moncler complete with models on the runways with their kids and even some pregnant models.  What a wonderful way to celebrate women and mothers.  I absolutely loved this concept and applaud them for it. Ben Fatto!

Here are the main trends that I picked up on in regards to jackets and outerwear.

  1. All tied up with belts and ties
  2. Suits are back
  3. More 70’s looks
  4. Fur,moncler men especially in colors
  5. Tweeds
  6. Menswear
  7. Fringe
  8. Embellishment and embroidery
  9. Leather
  10. Long coats
  11. Brocades and patterns
  12. Metallic fabrics
  13. Capes

There are some great trends here to pick and choose from.  My favorites being the tweeds and menswear,moncler gamme bleu but I also loved the brocades and patterned fabrics for womens jackets and coats. I also loved all the beautiful rose embroidery and embellishment from Dolce & Gabbana which was refreshing and different but very Italian and true to their look.

Of course the 70’s look came across loud and clear in Milan just like all the other fashion shows,moncler polo shirt but I really loved how the designers in the Milan shows really modernized the look and made it their own.

Below you can see my favorite looks and I as usual I love to hear from all of you with your wonderful comments.

Even though there were some common trend elements in Paris that were seen in other cities fashion weeks,moncler pet mainly the 70’s influence,moncler size chart I felt Paris still had its own trends that were unique and not as universal as seen in the other shows.

Here are some of the key trends that I pick up on from the Paris shows:

  1. Sleeveless coats
  2. 70’s but with a twist
  3. Punk mixed with tailored looks
  4. Brocades and Jacquards
  5. Fur
  6. Pattern mix
  7. Tweeds
  8. Velvets
  9. Belts and ties
  10. Deconstructed looks and seams
  11. Extra long sleeves
  12. Floor length coats
  13. Black and white
  14. Tuxedo looks
  15. Hippie chic
  16. Fringe

There are so many great trends to pick and choose from here especially for jackets and outerwear.  As usual I love the tweeds and the interesting pattern mixes mainly at Haider Ackermann,moncler store Chanel and Lanvin.  It was so nice to see rich fabrics like velvets and brocades making a comeback but in a modern way for a change.  Even though they are not necessarily jacket related,moncler jakker I also loved all the neck ties at Chloe and floral corsages at Dries Van Notten.

Wearing Our Solstice Vest On The First Day Of Summer–moncler mens jacket


Wearing Our Solstice Vest On The First Day Of Summer

I am so excited about our brand new summer vests that I have just added to the web site with the Solstice vest being my favorite because “orange is my new black”. I remember when I was a little girl,moncler canada orange used to be my favorite color and even though a lot of my girlfriends preferred pink over orange,moncler moka I always seemed to gravitate towards orange. It didn’t hurt that orange looked good on my skin tone and maybe this was one of the main reasons I always feel good wearing this color.

I was thrilled when I saw orange being one of the trend colors for spring/summer 2015. It was shown on so many show runways from Coach to Miu Miu and Vivienne Westwood. I really wanted to include this color in one of my Jacket Society pieces for this summer’s collection.

With last Sunday being “The Summer Solstice”,moncler pet and also the official first day of summer I thought this would be the perfect time to debut our new Solstice vest. I think vests are the perfect item as an alternate to jackets for summer especially when you are outdoors and it is too hot,moncler womens jackets but you still want to look well put together. I wore mine on Sunday over a tank top because we were going to be outdoors and the temperatures here in Los Angeles were in the mid to upper 90s. You can easily wear a long or short sleeve top under the vest,moncler gamme bleu in case you don’t feel comfortable with sleeveless tops. I wore mine with a tank top and skinny jeans and added one of our brand new necklaces with an orange stone that works perfectly with this vest. The necklace is available on our web site here and the vest in orange here. The vest is also available in black – here and ivory here,moncler mens jacket and I will be styling the black and ivory ones for you next week. I finished off my look with my tan sandals,moncler parka clutch and belt which  I think is the perfect leather color to pair with orange.

Before I go I wanted to let you know that I have added a great new selection of fabulous necklaces,moncler t shirt some of which have matching earrings to the site over the weekend. We do have limited quantities on all of them so make sure to stop by and take a look at them before they sell out.

I would love to hear your thoughts on vests and what you think of our Solstice vest?
