It’s Proenza Schouler day at I want – I got. I come bearing amazing news. Proenza Schouler and MÂ·AÂ·C Cosmetics are collaborating on a Spring Summer 2014 beauty collection. OMFG!!!!! This limited edition collection will have Ombre Face Powders, Lipsticks, Pro Longwear Eye Liners and Lip Pencils, Nail Lacquers, and a 129SE Powder Brush. The collection will be inspired by Jack and Lazaro’s previous collections. Look for the collection to hit stores and online everywhere April 2014.
Quote from James Gager, Creative Director, Senior Vice President, MÂ·AÂ·C Cosmetics:
“I have always respected Jack and Lazaro’s keen vision and point of view. We’ve worked together backstage creating beauty looks for their runway shows for many years and it has been fascinating to me watching them evolve. They have a very particular perspective on their makeup look each season. It has been a great experience collaborating with them to bring their beauty vision off the runway to our customers.”
Quote from Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler:
“Beauty has always played a huge role in what we do on the runway and MÂ·AÂ·C has been one of our biggest supporters. We wanted to create something that the Proenza Schouler woman could relate to off the runway, and the MÂ·AÂ·C brand is so deeply rooted in fashion that we knew they would understand our vision.” (source: Press Release)
The Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto is celebrating it’s first anniversary. Together with Sunny Fong of VAWK they unveiled new Lobby Lounge attire for the female staff that he designed.
“I wanted the design to truly reflect a hybrid of my brand and what I feel Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto represents. I was inspired by the art work in the lobby, the Ming vase tea library and the ornithological theme that is prevalent in the hotel and the Zhang Huan â€˜Rising’ sculpture,â€ said Fong of his inspiration. “When I met with Richard Cooke, we wanted something that seemed almost theatrical, so naturally I knew the silhouette had to be both sophisticated and sexy. I felt my desire to custom create a bold graphic print inspired by the Ming vase would absolutely make a dramatic statement.â€(source:Press Release)
The design is inspired by architecture and design of Asia. The dress is a take on the tradition gipao. The print reminds me of blue and white porcelain that began development in 14th century China.
I really like the design of the dresses and they fit perfectly with the Shangri-La aesthetic. Great job Sunny, I hope they let you redesign the men’s uniforms too.
Sunny Fong of VAWK has teamed up with eBay Canada to launch a seven piece limited edition collection called Vawk for eBay on August 12, 2013. Everything will be priced under $120 and will be available at Buy It Now pricing until September 15, 2013. I got the scoop on inventory and it’s really limited, if you have some favourites you need to purchase on August 12th. An added bonus is that eBay is providing free shipping.
The Manta shift dress at $119 is a steal and my favourite piece of the collection.
There is something for the guys too with the Duo leather skinny tie at $69.
