Gianfranco Ferre Announces New Creative Directors

Italian fashion house Gianfranco Ferré has named Stefano Citron and Federico Piaggi as their new creative directors. The styling duo have a long history with the brand -- the pair recently designed Ferré's 2012 Spring and Summer collection.

Citron and Piaggi worked closely with Gianfranco Ferré, who passed away in June 2007.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In 2009 the fashion house filed for bankruptcy and was sold earlier this year to Dubai-based distributor Paris Group. Abdulkader Sankari, founder of the Paris Group, has denied plans to sell the brand and vows to return Gianfranco Ferré to its former status as the supreme symbol of Italian luxury.

Editor's Pick~ Kooba Grace Tote

Fall is one of our favorite seasons for fashions and accessories. We're a bit obsessed with layered knits, chunky boots and cashmere wraps.

Our biggest love right now is this versatile Kooba 'Grace' Tote. This leather bag is perfect for the on-the-go gal.

The tote features a convenient inside pocket for your cell phone and the outside zip pocket is perfect for your keys -- no search and rescue operation needed to retrieve them from the bottom of the bag.

Personally, I love the interior removable zip-top clutch, an easy way to take your look from day to night instantly!

 

 

 

 

 

The bag is available is three colors: naked, black and chestnut. Shop Kooba; $595.00

Looks We Love~ Tweed

Tweed has made a huge comeback in today's fashion. Most people attribute Coco Chanel for tweed's presence in high fashion. The designer made the fabric popular in the 1950s and 1960s, crafting beautiful jackets and suiting ensembles. Because of its heavy properties, tweed was a fabric that was mainly just worn during cold months. Today tweeds are much lighter and can be worn season to season.

Tweed was seen all over the runways thanks to designers like Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs and of course Chanel making this trend increasingly popular in fashions and accessories. Celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth all feel the need for tweed.

Cameron Diaz took her look from casual to chic by adding this Elizabeth and James tweed blazer to her Equipment romper. Rachel Bilson mixed sexy and sophisticated in this tweed Chanel sheath with daring neckline and crossover hemline. Kate Bosworth paired wedge leather booties with her Chanel tweed  mini-skirt adding a touch of edge to her ladylike look.
