leathered goods

Oooh, leather.  The durable, sumptuous material that comes straight off the cattle’s back.  Leather has to be one of the most intimidating, luxurious materials in existence and the fact that it’s natural only adds to its cool factor (at least we think so!)  When a gal chooses to dress herself in the indulgent stuff, she clearly ain’t no wallflower.  In fact, she may just be looking for a little bit of trouble, at least that’s the message she’s  hinting at, weather she knows it or not!

Here’s a rundown of the leather infused collections from Spring/Summer 2013.  Our favs are ICB, Proenza Schouler, Sportmax, and Mugler!

The Carpetbagger’s Chloé Coverage!

Chloé, Chloé, Chloé… one of the last collections we’ve been anxiously awaiting all month long!  The unveiling of the fashion house’s collection for Spring/Summer 2013 is a dream!  Designer Clare Waight Keller has only been with creative force behind Chloé for a few short seasons now, but has certainly proven she knows just what she’s doing.

Here’s a few favorites from the collection (check out all 38 looks here!)  The overall vibe could best be described as loosely structured whimsy, classic Chloé.  Each piece is totally gorgeous and feminine, but certainly not overtly girly.  The textured pieces in particular had our attention from the get-go.  The flower-appliquéd pants in the first row?  Freaking amazing!  And the top heavy silhouettes are just great fun and quirky to boot!

Don’t Ask Me How…

Don’t ask me how, because I have no fucking clue.  And naturally, my phone was dead from already snapping my morning away in pics, so the only photographic evidence I have is this semi grainy one I only received from the sweetest gal seated next to me to who kindly sent me the image after giving her my card.

Reem Acra, Spring 2013 Runway

But somehow, someway, my lucky ass ended up front row at the Reem Acra Spring runway show. A mere 3 hours ago, to be exact! The carpetbagger is exhausted! but stay tuned, because LOTS more fun details and pics to come!!

Ostwald Helgason, Spring 2013

Simple, but girly and colorful, is how I would describe Ostwald Helgason’s latest collection.  One part quirky, two parts preppy, the design duo  (Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason) behind the label bring us a look that is fun and fresh!
