Sarine Marie

{ Sarine Marie Fall/Winter 12-13 Collection preview, LA Fashion Week}
I recently paired up with LA based designer Sarine Beberian, the face behind the  contemporary women's label, Sarine Marie and had the privilege of being selected to showcase her beautiful work.  Supporting emerging designers is something we love to do here on VV, especially when the collections speak volumes on their own merit through each detailed ensemble. It's no easy task to mix romance with edge and still keep the fabrics light enough to celebrate a women's silhouette. Laser cut leather, silk chiffon, lace and wool gabardine, these are just some of the luxury fabrics she uses to showcase her lady-like designs. Recently Sarine Marie was one of 12 emerging designers at the MAGIC show in Las Vegas.  The LA Fashion Council highlighted 11 pieces in a private runway show previewing her upcoming collections, not to mention the countless write-ups on her line by Apparel News, Women's Wear Daily, Lucky Magazine, MSN Living and more.  Check out more of her beautiful collection here.

What I love most about fashion is the interpretation of clothing from a designer's perspective. When I first found this skirt, its asymmetric hem, architectural lines and overall draping construction of the garment screamed original and unique. Since most items in my closet are traditionally "safe" {at least I would presume}, this was one playful skirt that I was excited to wear. Not to mention my love and respect for Helmut Lang grew immensely. Dress it up with heels or booties, or down with some lace-up motorcycle boots. In the end, just have fun with your style. 


Style Inspo Friday

I watched a French romantic comedy with subtitles on Netflix the other night called Heartbreaker (L'arnacoeur) with Vanessa Paradis.  I'll be the first to admit, mayyybeee it was a bit cheesy, but the ending was cute and sappy and right up my alley. Vanessa Paradis on the other hand... in. love. with. her. style.  Oh, the French girl flair.  The feminine grace and completely effortless look is just bananas.  Let's take a look at some Paris street fashions for some style inspo Friday.  Hope you have a great weekend. xx.
