Sister Act

The November 30, 2006 issue of Women's Wear Daily has the dish on the Miller Sisters:

"Sienna Miller has turned from fashion plate to fashion designer. The actress has teamed up with her designer-sister Savannah Miller to create an 80-piece ready-to-wear line, called Twenty8Twelve by s.miller, which will launch for fall 2007. The company plans to make an official announcement today."

The girls are quite close and older sister Savannah has got a lot of insight into Sienna's sartorial secret. In the January 2006 issue of American Vogue, Savannah Miller says of her stylish sister, "There was a Cartier polo match in England, and it was the first time she had been out since the whole Jude episode. She was staying in the country and had no clothes of her own. She borrowed from her friend's closet a black skirt and wore it around her boobs with a cardigan from the dressing-up box and some size 8 shoes with her mom's gold jewelry. And every newspaper in the country was asking how she does it."

Well, now that the muse and the designer in the family has put their pretty heads together, there's no need to dissect the star's outfit. It'll be as easy as getting Sienna's style off the rack!

Audrey and The Mother of all LBDs

Next week Christie's will auction the iconic little black dress that Audrey Hepburn wore in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Here's what Clare Coulson of The Telegraph has to say about the mother of all little black dresses:

"That simple but instantly recognisable black gown, designed by Hubert de Givenchy, is expected to fetch about £70,000. It is a modest prediction for what is, arguably, the most copied piece of clothing in film history.

When Hepburn appeared in that LBD at the beginning of the film, in the role of Holly Golightly peering into the windows of Tiffany & Co while munching on a croissant from a brown paper bag, she raised the bar on what has become a wardrobe staple.

With her incomparable elegance and poise, she harnessed the power of the LBD. No other actress or model has made such an impact, before or since."

Now for the lucky one who gets this fabulous piece, what can I say! You'll be owning a piece of fashion history right there!

A Little Bird Told Me...


...that after Roland Mouret, its Phoebe Philo's turn to collaborate with The Gap. Oooooh! Sounds like a dream come true!

They may be late riding on the masstige wave, but The Gap executives sure are making up for it!

He Said What?

"Competition keeps you on your toes. Bench's main competitor at the moment, Chan says, is Zara." - page Q7 of the November 26, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer

Today is a sad day for Business Majors and MBA degree holders. You can market map and position your company or products accurately, but can you grow a retail empire comprised of "7 franchise outlets in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Guam, Riyadh, China, the United States, Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Canada and Palau, on top of 270 company-owned stores, 30 franchisees and 218 concessionaires in the Philippines." even without knowing a basic thing such as positioning your company based on customer segmentation and product line?

Bench founder Ben Chan believes that "Hard work pays, but you must also have luck". What can I say! He was definitely born lucky! Mr. Chan is proof that street smart business sense outclasses textbook theory hands down.

Drool Baby Drool

First came the babydoll dresses, now come the bibs! What next? A revival of the pacifier (bet you forgot all about that 90's craze!)? In the meantime, drool all you want on these:

Topshop sequined bib front top

Diane von Furstenberg Maylea shirt dress (Left, $325), actually the designer's famous jersey wrap with a pin tuck shirt and cuff inserts and the Viktor & Rolf version (Right, $1,640) a silk crepe bib on a shift.

Kimono Lee

Here's something pretty and Asian inspired to wear for the holidays! I'm loving how comfortable yet exotic it can be at the same time. (With that empire waist, you can eat all you want without worrying about a bulging tummy after a sumptuous meal!) Wear it with heels and you're all glammed up for the night. Pair it with flip flops and its casual as casual can be! In short, a versatile style that will get a lot of mileage in your wardrobe. Trust me!

Shoe-aholic

After all the shoes I posted the last time, comes a book that may just answer why I, and the rest of the the female population, are crazy about shoes!!!

Here's the review from amazon.co.uk: 'Shoes possess magic powers,' writes journalist and shoe obsessive Paola Jacobbi as she totters her way through the history of women's footwear and wonders why it is that women (from Imelda Marcos to Carrie Bradshaw) love their shoes so, so much. Jacobbi pontificates (sandals are the bikini of footwear); psychoanalyses (the relationship between shoes and sex); and has fiery opinions (ankle boots are quite simply a no-no). She also has plenty of good advice: choosing the right heel for your physique, how to keep shoes lasting long and how to judge a man by his footwear. Witty, charming and stylish, "I Want Those Shoes" is an irresistible little book, almost as irresistible as buying that one last pair.

Tux for Chicks

Victoria Traina balanced a feminine dress with a manly tux and and it was quite an elegant mix!

Now, here's the lady who brought the tux back into the style scene! As early as May 2006, she rocked the jacket with skinny leather pants!

Moc Me


I am obsessed with these Minnetonka Moccasin knee high suede fringe boots! Often seen on Kate, Sienna, and Lindsay, its definitely got loads of style! Good news is, it comes without the A-list price. Just about $60 thereabouts for a pair! Not bad huh!



These come in a rainbow of colors, so go ahead take your pick! There's plenty to go around! (although personally, I'd go for black or brown)

These can go with skinny jeans, minis, shorts, gauchos, well actually anything...One thing's for sure, these won't be relegated to the fringes of fashion!

Slim Pickings

Lookie Lookie at the new Havaianas with slim straps! Called Havaianas Slim, these are perfect for dainty, girly chicks! According to the Havaianas website, Slims are works of art and are "super delicate, with a slim shape, thinner straps, and high fashion colors, in golden, silver, and chrome hues". They also have a "golden floral print to match the straps".

Now imagine wearing a pair with dresses and bikinis! Flip flops can't get any more feminine than these!

In Our Galaxy

There was a time when Roland Mouret dresses were only worn by the rich and famous. But thank God for the concept called masstige! Mere earthlings such as us now have the chance to be dressed by Roland Mouret. Here's the report from style.com:

"You remember the dress: It turned waifs like Sienna Miller into vamps, and vamps like Scarlett Johansson into goddesses—no wonder designer Roland Mouret dubbed it the Galaxy. Well, now you don't have to be an A-lister to be transformed by his creations. The London-based French frock maker, whose new label is called 19RM, has designed a five-dress line for Gap that hits the chain's U.S. stores later this month. The little black shifts, belted tunics, and red shirtdresses (the latter benefit Gap's RED initiative) may not have the dramatic corseting and cantilevering that the Galaxy did, but that just means they're a lot easier to slip into. The $108 top price tag helps, too."

Roland Mouret for Gap long-sleeve V-neck ruffle dress, $108, available December 1 at select NYC Gap stores: 1 Astor Pl., (212) 253-0145; 657 Third Ave. at 42nd St., (212) 697-3590; 734 Lexington Ave. at 59th St., (212) 751-1543; 60 W. 34th St. at Broadway, (212) 760-1268; 680 Fifth Ave. at 54th St., (212) 977-7023; 1466 Broadway at 42nd St., (212) 382-4500; 122 Fifth Ave. at 18th St., (917) 408-5580.

Fashionspeak 101

First things first, get the names of the fashion folks right! If you speak the lingo and speak it well, then that shows you've got the makings of a true blue fashionista! Now on to the lesson from the experts!

Here's how you should pronounce the names according to Cruz and Robinovitz of The Fashionista Files:

French names ending with "on" should be pronounced as "uuuhhh" as in "Louis Vuituuuhhh" and "Martine Sitbuuuhhh"

French words that end in "ier" are pronounced "eee-ay" with a strong a sound.

Issey Miyake is said like this: "i-(soft i as in "it")-sey mee-yah-ke...

Versace: "Verr-sah-chie" not "Ver-says" or "Ver-say-sss"...

The design label Loewe is not "low", but rather "low-ev-ay".

Designer Moschino is pronounced "mo-ski-no", not "mo-shee-no"

Hermes is not "her-meeez". It's "air-mez" with a hard si that sounds like a z.

Gaultier is "go-tee-ay". Not "gaul-teer"

...Zegna is said like this:"zen-yuh"

Byblos is "bee-blow-s"

Gianfranco Ferre is said with a heavy accent over the last e such that is sounds like "ferr-ay"

Etro is pronounced "ay-tro"

Cesare Paciotti, the shoe designer is said like this:"chay-sa-ray pah-chee-oh-tee"

Nicolas Ghesquiere is "nee-ko-lah ges-queer" (other quarters say gas-kee-ay some say guess-key-air)


You can also take some tips from Marie Claire's Maureen Dempsey:

ANDREW GN \jen\
This Singapore-born designer's name rhymes with "Zen" -- the antithesis of his opulently embellished clothes.

ANNA SUI \swee\
Maybe it was her cowgirl collection, but her surname did elicit the pig call "sueeee!!!" Think "sweet" sans the T.

AQUASCUTUM \ah-kwa-skew-tum\
As you'll remember from Latin class, this name merges aqua (water) and scutum (shield) -- and these British raincoats have lived up to it for well over a century.

BALENCIAGA \ba-len-see-ah-ga\
Today's head designer, Nicolas Ghesquiere \nee-coh-la guess-kee-air\, is also a mouthful. Rather delicious, he is, too!

BEHNAZ SARAFPOUR \ben-oz sah-rafpoor\
This A-list designer is simply "Behnaz'; her clientele -- mostly rich-girls in- a-hurry -- rarely have time to manage both her first and last name.

CESARE PACIOTTI \che-sah-ray pa-chotee\
We say ciao and get all choked up over his gorgeous footwear.

CHLOE SEVIGNY \sev-en-ee\
This actress/designer's muse is seven times a style icon.

DRIES VAN NOTEN \dreez van no-ten\
The first name rhymes with "trees", which is easy to remember: The Belgian scattered gold leaf through his fall collection.

HERMES \er-mez\
So, who's going to tell Tony Soprano that the formidable French house ne pronounce pas the "h"? The second syllable rhymes with "fez".

INEZ VAN LAMSWEERDE \in-ez van lams-veerd\ & VINOODH MATADIN \vihnood mat-a din\
Even seasoned fashionistas need travel guides to navigate the bumpy road through these photographers' multisyllabic monikers.

MARCHESA \mar-kay-sah\
Hollywood actresses are more than okay with what this London house offers.

MIU MIU \mew-mew\
No need to get into a catfight over it: Miuccia Prada's nickname is as easy to love as her funky secondary line.

MONIQUE LHUILLIER \mo-neek loo-leeyay\
Rumor is a lot of young actresses send their stylists over to pick up her glam gowns: Her name is a line many of them just can't learn.

NATALIA VODIANOVA \vo-dee-ah-no-vah\
She sounds like a prima ballerina and is grace personified on the catwalk.

PETER SOM \sahm\
Many a psalm has been sung to this young designer's heavenly clothes.

PROENZA SCHOULER \pro-en-za skooler\
"Schoul" rhymes with "drool" -- and you might over their fabulous fall 2006 collection.

RODARTE \ro-dar-tay\
This exquisite label's hand-stitching and beading attest to the art of fashion (but pronounce all three syllables).

SCARLETT JOHANSSON \joe-hansen\
She looks Scandinavian -- but doesn’t go by "yo". It's Jo-hansson.

SONIA RYKIEL \ree-kee-el\
We're really keen on her resort collection.

THAKOON \ta-koon\
Suppress the urge to pronounce this onenamer "tha-koon'. You wouldn't go out for "thigh food', would you?

TIIU KUIK \tee-you kweek\
Estonia exports models with impossibly long legs and impossibly short names.

TRASTEVERINE \tras-te-ve-reen-eh\
Italians believe all vowels are created equal: Give them their due.

NOW DEARIES, FEEL FREE TO PRINT THIS OUT! PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT! ;-)

The Kylie Collection

I love Kylie! The Locomotion was great, but it was Spinning Around and Can't Get You Out Of My Head that sealed the deal for me. Hearing her music just makes you want to stand up and dance! She isn't exactly my style icon since her sexy look is not my kind of thing (I'm quite conservative, so hotpants will never find their way to my closet), but hey it works for her! One thing's for sure though! I want to look like that when I get to her age! I mean, how does she do it? How can she look this good right after chemo?(If this was me, I'd probably look like i just got out of Auschwitz.)

It seems that the folks at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London are enamored as well. According to the Telegraph, "She has been a soap star, a pop princess and, for much of her career, the quintessence of a manufactured entertainer. Somewhat surprisingly, the Victoria & Albert Museum has decided to dedicate an entire exhibition next year to Kylie Minogue. Kylie: The Exhibition will feature 200 of the performer's costumes, accessories, photographs and awards, including the gold-coloured hotpants she wore in the video for her first No 1 single for 10 years, Spinning Around, in 2000."

If I happened to be in London I would definitely go and check this exhibit out. Don't worry about me. Those gold hotpants can stay there under the watchful eyes of the museum guards.

DV

When I hear the letters D and V put together, it just makes me want to stop on my tracks and say "what about?"! I mean DV can stand for Divisoria, a favorite shopping haunt for fabrics, ribbons, laces, wrapping paper, and what nots. Oh I still remember 168 at its hypest! People were just crazy about going there! After all, going to Divi is like an adventure. You never know if you'll find parking, you don't know what fabulous goodie is lurking at each corner, you can't be too sure that your wallet or purse is safe from pickpockets, but you go anyway and just take your chances.

DV could also mean Diana Vreeland, a style icon, former Vogue editor and just a wonderful, colorful personality who had a gift for gab, and an innate talent for describing scenes and telling stories that you can't help but be enthralled. Never mind if she was passing of fiction for fact. Yes, she coined the word "faction". As Mary Louis Wilson, who wrote the foreword for the 1997 run of Diana's book DV, "Realities were simply not important to Mrs. V. as the imaginative life."

I just had to ask my fiance to order this book for me from Amazon. So when I got the package yesterday, I couldn't wait to get my hands on her magic. Mrs. V. was an extraordinary woman. Her stories were spellbinding and her witty quips were a riot. "Never fear being vulgar, just boring" she said. Her Harper's Bazaar column entitled "Why Don't You?" was a showcase of her originality and a hint of being out of touch with reality (i.e., Why don't you have a private staircase from your bedroom to the library with a needlework carpet with notes of music worked on each step - the whole spelling your favorite tune?.")

But then again, this book is not meant to be taken literally. It is a fun read, a modern day fairy tale whose stories about glamorous socialites, lithe and sultry dancers, jewel encrusted maharajahs and the British royalty were spun by a woman with a magical spinning (like crazy) wheel.

MASAstige: Masstige Pinoy Style

Guess what! The phenomenon known as "masstige" has now reached our shores! Folded&Hung has commissioned Ivarluski Aseron to design a collection for their stores. Brilliant of this retail upstart to move a fast one on the more established retail chains and gain that strategic first mover advantage!

Style Icon #1 Lola Imas

Before I discovered Vogue, everything I knew about style I got from Lola Imas. She was actually my mom's aunt but we lived with her in her sprawling bungalow. She didn't have kids, but she had plenty of nieces and nephews who doted on her. I can say she was the family matriarch. She commandeered the family in her own soft yet steely way, and was looked up to by everyone. She was so fascinating. Up to now, my sister Trina and I wish to grow up into someone like her.

I loved being with Lola Imas. She always smelled so good. Everytime she stepped out of her airconditioned room for breakfast, I would kiss her on the cheek, touch her wrinkly arms (I could still feel the coolness of the room on her skin) and take in her intoxicating scent of Joy (which she told me was the most expensive perfume in the world. "Look at this bottle, its very tiny. You can get a big bottle of perfume for this one" she'd say). She was always impeccably dressed in her house clothes (yes there was such a thing) and was the only person I knew who never left her room without a house coat over her pastel dusters, even if it meant just going to the dining room to sit for a meal or to the terrace to get some sun. She was never one to wear rubber slippers (or "shinela" as my little sister Nic liked to call them when she was a kid). Instead she wore Isotoner totes ballet slippers. She had it in blue terry cloth for her blue colored house coats and in pink satin for her pink themed ones. She really knew the importance of good loungewear, and was always ready to receive guests who would drop by unannounced.

Because she had a cataract, she wore dark glasses the whole day. But that only added to her glam factor. Imagine a well coiffed, immaculately dressed lola wearing shades! How divine! Watching her get dressed for a party was a treat! I would go to her room and observe her pick out a dress and heeled sandals to match. Choosing which jewelry to wear was exciting. My Lola Glory (mom's mom) or my mom would get her jewelry from an undisclosed spot in her room, and she would just pull out a simple but fantastic piece of jewelry to accessorize her outfit with. My, her jewelry collection was very understated, very elegant, and all real! She couldn't be bothered with costume jewelry. When I think about how one of the in-laws went straight for the safe the moment she passed away, that action was the total opposite of all those pieces - tacky and done in bad taste.

Ohhh how I loved her home in San Francisco! I can still remember the address: 2638 Larkin Street. According to rhn.org (the Russian Hill Neighbors website) it was one of the "comparatively few Victorians on RH -- much of the area was too hilly for early development; then, although extensive development occurred starting in the 1880s, many of the dwellings were destroyed in the 1906 fire." So this was a historical piece of property. (She sold it though when she was too old to travel and none of the relatives wanted to live in the U.S. Such a shame really but its my goal to one day buy back that dear house! Its my Tara!) The view from her home was just beautiful. You could see the Wharf and Alcatraz from there! We would walk down a few steps and we'd be right at the top of Lombard Street, also known as the "crookedest street" in the world. Funny, up until my freshman year in high school I thought that it was spelled Crookedes Street, as in "They live at 1234 Crookedes Street...", duh!

I was never able to spend the last year of her life with her. We were living in Kansas for a time, where my dad was taking further military studies, and she was also staying with my Tita Lita in Alabang. When we got back here she was already confined in the ICU of Makati Med. She wanted to see me, she told my mom and titas as soon as we arrived. I visited her and she was still as beautiful on her bed, with all the contraptions and machines around her. Still my glamorous lola who I love dearly and whose stylish countenance will stay with me. Memories of her elegance are enough to last me a lifetime.

Annoyance

What's more troubling? Someone who doesn't bother to dress up, or someone who looks hopelessly tacky but thinks they've got their style vibe going?

I can stand indifference to fashion. Not everyone has the interest for it, the same way I couldn't care less about the latest gadgets or the hottest business venture (unless that involves clothes and accessories that is!) this side of town. I'm no art piece collector, nor do I have a passion for theatre. They're entertaining for sure, but I won't analyze brushstrokes or subplots for my amusement alone. In short, whatever floats your boat!

What riles me are people who think they're oh so fashionable. And when I mean fashionable, I mean they think they've achieved full, authentic fashionista status (ehem ehem like you and me who can: a) spot a designer's work from the draping of the fabric alone, or the whimsical detail they're known for, b) can tell from which season a particular trend sprung out, c) can pronounce the foreign label correctly, d) can match the designer to the label (to them, yes Balenciaga/Chanel/Lanvin are long gone), e) can tell by gut feel how to wear a piece of clothing and match an accessory to their outfit correctly, f) all of the above). Cut me some slack, I'm not being a bitch. I may have my own taste, but I respect people with their own personal style. So this rant piece is actually directed at those who think they'll make the style files of Vogue but actually look like sad, trying hard caricatures of those stars they're trying to emulate.

FV 1: Take this one girl for instance who insists on wearing the Sienna Miller boho look that she's oh so carefully put together from her tiangge collection. Now there's nothing wrong with wearing tiangge clothes, but when you're dressed head to toe in them, and you act like you thought of the boho look all by yourself, then there's a loose screw in there somewhere. Besides, doesn't she know Sienna's ditched that look when she saw every 10 year old on the High Street wearing a coin belt slung around the hip of their peasant skirt, uhm about a year ago?

FV 2: Then there's this other girl who's nearing the big 3-0 but thinks she's still in high school. Mini skirts, loud, colorful and tacky shoes bought from Mongkok, plus this season's trends worn all together at the same time. Cute look for a teenage girl, but fashion victimy on a woman. Hello! Paris Hilton has moved on from her tiered mini skirt and tank top days, shouldn't she be doing that too? Girl, I mean, woman! There's a huge difference between childlike and childish and you wouldn't want to be the latter I assure you! Ever heard of the term "nagmumurang kamatis"? That'll be you five years from now.

FVs 3&4: Oh oh! Here's an interesting pair of best buddies! They think they can get away with anything. Both wear 4 inch heels in the office (they adore those knock-off Louboutin Bruges but I doubt if they have an idea that they're wearing poor copies). But I betcha each one's nearing the 200 lbs. mark. (Isn't that a double disaster waiting to happen?) One loves wearing a wide belt cinched around her waist, just because its in to do so. Never mind that she's drawing attention to a barrel for a body. They both have huge boobs (which I am jealous of) but they're not doing them justice by wearing boleros two sizes too tight they look like they're about to burst. Three words for them: Dress to Flatter

FV 5: Money can't buy her class. Even if her Louis Vuittons are real, they still look fake, what with the long orange hair, acid washed jeans, platform boots, bleached skin by Ellen's, and her loudmouthed ways. (I saw her in a bank, transacting with the teller in a voice loud enough for everyone to know she had a dollar account there). Mama-san, you deserve that Yakuza of a husband!

FV 6: The greatest injustice of them all! Fashion victim as magazine editor. Yes, that's how clueless local media is here (some, not all!), that they can be duped by a man/woman who can't tell class from crass, and made him/her one of their own. Sad state this country's at. The politicians are making empty promises, the children are getting ignorant by the minute with the state of our educational system, our soldiers are struggling with insurgency because the defense and security budget is being siphoned off to the pork barrel fund, the man on the street has to contend with a smaller basket of goods for his peso's worth, and a publication appoints this person editor. Can't we do anything right here? They can't even get fashion right, and really, its not even an essential to the average person! What are we left with now? Garbage in, Garbage out! Darn!

J.CREW YOU!

ALL DAY...

and ALL NIGHT...

Why not wear the former when you go shopping? Match it with a black tight v-neck sweater (with the sleeves pushed to your elbows), short black cuffed shorts, a big brown leather bag, huge Gucci shades with the gold horsebit on each side and chunky gold hoops on your ears. How glam! Then, when night falls, wear the latter with a short dark navy strapless bubble dress in satin, big diamond studs and this Judith Leiber clutch.

"If I was a Rich Girl"

I'd build myself a diamond "collection"!

Let's dream a little. Say, I had tons of property; a trust fund that would assure me and my grandchildren's children a comfortable life; reliable, capable and professional managers to run the family corporation; and to top it all, my investments are just raking it in. What would I do?

Buy jewelry. See, I hardly own jewelry. For me, its not an essential. I have a few basic pieces but that's it. So if I had extra money, then I'd go get iced. But I wouldn't buy the ostentatious ones that are just screaming for attention. I really have simple taste. I mean what's the point of buying fantastic stones I would hardly wear, and if I did, I still wouldn't because I'd be dead scared of losing them?! So I'd rather go for these understated, elegant, classic and wearable ones that are ok to wear for everyday, and would still leave me with a lot more dough to pass on to the nth generation:

Daywear: Tiffany diamond studs, for pierced ears. Round brilliant diamonds, carat total weight .94, color grade D, clarity grade VVS1. Set in platinum. This item comes with a Tiffany Diamond Certificate.$12,400

Evening Wear: Shared Prong hoop earrings, for pierced ears. Platinum; round brilliant diamonds, carat total weight 1.60, color grade G, clarity grade VS. $6,800

Fun Wear: Tiffany Bubbles ring. Platinum; round brilliant diamond, color grade G, clarity grade VS. $9,000

Just Because I'm Me Wear (Stands for my Nickname and dear Tiff): Tiffany Letters "T" pendant. Round brilliant diamonds, carat total weight .12, color grade G, clarity grade VS; platinum. 16" long.$1,950

Yup, this is it. If "I've had all the money in the world", these are all the jewelry I'm buying. I'd be satisfied and still be a super rich "wealthy girl". "My cash flow will never ever end" because I only spent a tip of the "ice"berg. Hahaha!
