Need to update your denim? Take a look at the brand new Spring styles we’re digging from Koral Los Angeles, the latest label from jean genius Peter Koral (a.k.a. the founder of 7 For All Mankind). All six styles available in-store now!
Aussie designer Kit Willow and her eponymous line should definitely be on your radar this Spring, if they’re not already. We’re really digging WILLOW’s loose, printed tanks and curve-hugging peplum jackets, which are perfect for layering. (And as any LA girl knows, layering is essential in a town where the temps can fluctuate by 20 degrees or more depending on your proximity to the ocean.) One thing you won’t want to cover up, however, is WILLOW’s lingerie-inspired bustier silhouette, which Kit created by updating a vintage Dior technique. Check out Miranda Kerr modeling one of said bustier pieces below. We love the way it reveals sexy little flashes of skin where you’d least expect it. This just may be the maxi dress of the summer.

If you’re a fan of the roaring 20s and art deco, then file Lanvin’s Fall 2013 collection under E for…must. have. everything. Whether Alber Elbaz was aware that Gatsby-era dressing would be all the rage when he designed this collection is unclear, but its art deco influence is anything but cloudy – especially when it comes to the collection’s jewels. Take a look at some of our favorite accessories from the Fall 2013 collection below.

We’re a little bit infatuated with Nina Ricci’s transfixing red, black and white color palette for Fall 2013. The collection exudes classic femininity, and rapt attention is paid to delicate lace finishes and strategic placement of ruffles, ruching and draping. Of course, we didn’t leave the showroom without looking at the accessories, which include mini snakeskin inspired clutches and leather trimmed handbags. Check out the slideshow below to see more from the Nina Ricci showroom:

New label alert: We just added a gorgeous line of digital print scarves, Silk by Bryony, to the mix. LA-based (but London born) designer Bryony Shearmur is a fine art photographer, and each of the prints found on her scarves is created from her archive of personal photographs. There are tons of creative ways to wear these silk accessories besides around your neck: think head scarf, wrap dress, skirt, shawl… Plus, every scarf is beautifully hand finished and signed by Bryony, making them true works of wearable art.
Check out a few of our favorite ways to rock them below.
