Chloe & Reese

Couture-lovers, take note: Chloe & Reese wants to bring custom creations to the masses. The brand will launch their website tomorrow, but will be offering savvy shoppers more than just your average e-commerce offerings. The site will include an international custom shop, making them the first woman's ready-to-wear collection to offer shoppers around the world the opportunity to customize any of Chloe & Reese's darling dresses, blouses, coats and more (from seasons past and present!) in hundreds of colors and fabrications, like silk failles, vintage-look brocades, Italian wool cashmere blends, satins and velvets. All garments are made to order and shipped within a two-week delivery window.

"With the launch of our international custom shop, we offer a fresh perspective on the traditional shopping experience by making it more personal and valuable to the consumer," said Annmarie Scotto, Chloe & Reese designer. "Shoppers can get exactly what they want, with garments that reflect their own personal style." The custom shop isn't chloeandreese.com's only draw: with its launch, the website will also feature promotional incentives like Free Frock Fridays and The Boyfriend List, a registry where users can keep a wish list--and include their boyfriend or husband's email address.

Thank you Emily Gyben

Louis Vuitton The "Graffitti Print"

Fashion graffiti has reemerged as global luxury brand Louis Vuitton brings out yet another graffiti pop collection.

The spray-art inspired collection for Louis Vuitton is a collaboration with artist Stephen Sprouse for the second time around. The first time was with the graffiti collection back in 2001 which took the fashion world by storm; this time they are elaborating on past success.

Spouse has now recreated the graffiti print, and it’s just the bags this time that have been under the spray can - the graffiti luxe touch has been added to sneakers, shoes, sunglasses as well as a range of clothing.

No doubt the graffiti art scene is growing in the streets, and that is all good, but the fashion graffiti craze is a little beyond me… Too much going on. I can’t wait to see this fad turn back to basics again.
