Fashion: Geed Up with The Street Wear Resurgence

Screen Shot 2014-08-31 at 12.56.36 AM

Street wear, made popular in the 80’s, has been making a comeback and with stylish inspiration all around us there’s no way you’ve missed this resurgence of cool “skater boy” comfort. Since not everyone can afford designer duds, brands offering street wear brings other options to look the part to the table however, top brands aren’t missing a beat. So what exactly is “street wear”? It’s actually more of a style than it is a particular article of clothing but many street wear looks today include joggers, sweatshirts, snap back hats, anything with military influence and jerseys with an updated and fitted design structure. And since its more of a new generation, youth culture movement, jeans and tees are essential to achieving this look as well. The current street wear look combines surfer and skater.

Sneakers have and will forever be a staple in mens and women’s closets all over the world but recently we’ve noticed a special interest in trainers and Adidas shell toe classics. It’s no surprise that these choices fit squarely into the street wear mold and really are a great place to start when building your Fall wardrobe. The classics are once again making such a stir that brands like Giuseppe Zanotti, Lousi Vuitton and most recently Buscemi are refusing to be left behind by making some street stylish waves of their own.

MarkMcNairyss14Leading the pack in the world of street wear clothing is Billionaire Boys Club. Forever on his game, Pharrell founded the brand in 2003 and it’s been going strong ever since. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to have heavy hitters in your corner like Jay Z and men’s footwear designer, Mark McNairy. Now, if all of that sounds great, you’ve checked out the prices and decided that you’re actually in search of pieces that are a bit more cost conscious but have great quality and style, check out Jordan Craig. They have a range of options including everything from outer wear to jeans and stylish button down shirts.

Speaking of outer wear, a must-have for autumn if you want to step up your street wear game is an upgraded version of an old school letterman jacket. Where we are used to seeing the school letter, these have now been replaced with designer logos but its clear to see that this new take on a traditional piece, is taking off. It’s been cropping up in collections from Saint Laurent to Marc Jacobs and beyond. You can also find affordable versions of this style jacket in most Urban Outfitters.

As always, don’t forget your graphic and basic tees. These are perfect to use as a foundation, layering piece and will likely become a favorite addition to your wardrobe for their ease and comfort. At the end of the day, all you need to remember is that street wear is a culture that’s based on self awareness and personal taste so you really can’t go wrong in however you choose to pair these essentials.

In other Pitt Street shopping moves, the current pop up store for Japanese UNIQLO, at the Glasshouse in 135 King Street, will move into its Sydney flagship store at 400 George Street next year.

Further along the mall, the world’s largest beauty retailer, Sephora, has also secured a store in Pitt St Mall, replacing Esprit. Sephora will open its first Australian store in December 2014.

Ralph Lauren, which severed its local ties with Oroton, is looking at taking the shop next door, currently occupied by Guess, to build its presence for the Polo brand.

Mr Hemphill said the $330 million revamp of the nearby MLC Centre will see it repositioned as the new luxury retail precinct on King and Castlereagh Streets, leaving the fast fashion to Pitt Street Mall.

Meanwhile Forever 21, which sits between TOP SHOP and Zara in terms of its target market, has also committed to a store at Sydney’s Macquarie Centre and Brisbane’s Queen Street Mall. It will then roll out across the country as suitable sites become available.

Shop rents around the Pitt Street mall average about  $7300 per square metre per annum, but climb to as much as $10,000 per square metre for prime street front locations. Even though they are already among the world’s most expensive, it’s thought the renewed competition for prime locations spurred by the new-arrival brands could see rents climb even further.

Ambler Main Street hosts ‘Essence of Ambler’ fashion show to promote local …







Ambler’s South Ridge Avenue is about to be transformed into a catwalk to allow local businesses to strut their stuff.

As part of the First Friday festivities, Ambler Main Street is unveiling a brand new event called “Essence of Ambler,” designed to help promote local businesses in the borough. The creative marketing event kicks off Sept. 5 from 6-9 p.m. and will feature local businesses promoting themselves in creative ways as they walk down the runway.

“Essence of Ambler is a showcase of some of our local businesses executed in a fashion show format,” said Allison Wolf, president of AMS, in a press release. “This event offers business owners the opportunity to collaborate with one another to produce a live show with an audience. It’s organic in nature and will be a blast! First Fridays is the ideal launching pad for this sort of event — our merchant specials and outdoor activities attract a lot of people of all ages!”

Tickets for the 50 front row seats at the show go on sale for $10 Aug. 28 with proceeds benefitting Ambler Main Street. The event will be rain or shine, as the First Presbyterian Church of Ambler has offered to house the show should the weather decide not to cooperate.

Producing the show is AMS volunteer Karen Palmer and Jill Strickland, owner of Frox Boutique, who asked each of the 15 participating businesses to collaborate and create an interesting and unique way of marketing themselves for the audience.

“The genesis probably dates back to last year,” Palmer said. “We wanted to do a back-to-school fashion show but we didn’t have the energy.”

Palmer said she still had the idea in mind to hold a fashion show of some kind in the borough and turned to Strickland to help get it off the ground.

“Rather than do a back-to-school fashion show,” Palmer said, “which doesn’t promote the variety of the businesses in town, we decided to call [the show] a local business showcase.”

Each business was asked to create a playlist to play during its portion of the show that represent the “vibe” of the store while models stroll down the runway.

In a world filled with screens, Palmer said, it’s important to find ways of expressing a particular brand for consumers. Continued…

The first of its kind, Essence of Ambler is designed to demonstrate one thing, Palmer said, “[that] Ambler is the place to go shopping.”

Savannah’s Fashion Night To Transform Broughton Street – WSAV

SAVANNAH, GA -
Broughton Street will once again be transformed into a pedestrian-only showcase of local fashion, art, music and design during the fourth annual Savannah’s Fashion Night the evening of Thursday, Sept. 4.

From 6:30 to 11 p.m., fashion shows and live music will take place on outdoor stages set up along Broughton, and boutiques will create their own unique events and promotions. Free parking is available at all meters and in the Civic Center Parking Lot during the event. Parking in the Bryan, Whitaker, Robinson, and State Street Garages – all located within one block of Broughton – is a flat $2 fee.

Retailers participating in the 2014 Savannah’s Fashion Night include: Bleubelle Boutique, Charleston Shoe Company, Civvies, Copper Penny, fab’rik, Go Fish Clothing, Half Moon Outfitters, Ivory Beau, J. Parker Ltd., Kathi Rich, M Liz Designs, Mamie Ruth Designs, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Matilda Jane, One Eleven Boutique, Palm Avenue, Paris Market, Pretty Peach Boutique, Rivers Glen, Sara Jane Children’s Boutique, Satchel, Sylvester Co., Terra Cotta, Trunk 13, Veronica’s Closet, Villa Savannah and Zia Boutique.

The retail store fab’rik, owned by Savannah’s Fashion Night co-founder Bree Thomas, will be hosting a fab-chella event featuring a pop-up shop with local designers from Satchel, a Dollface by Jules lip station, henna tattoo station, and giveaways such as a fab’rik merchandise swag bag.

Some retailers will be unveiling new locations, innovative campaigns and updated storefronts. Sara Jane Children’s Clothing will present a new Airstream fashion truck on the corner of Bull and Broughton streets for Savannah Fashion’s Night and simultaneously launching their mobile store campaign for busy parents in the surrounding Savannah area.

“Fashion trucks are the next big thing, like food trucks,” says Sara Jane Strickland, owner of Sara Jane Children’s Boutique. “It’s going to be an extension of our store, carrying clothing sizes from newborn to children’s size 12.”

Chaco, a national outdoor footwear brand, has joined on as a sponsor for Savannah’s Fashion Night 2014. In conjunction with their Chaco Fit for Adventure Bus Tour, Chaco will be stopping in Savannah on Savannah’s Fashion Night and partnering with Halfmoon Outfitters as a part of their 25th anniversary celebration. Not only will Chaco be handing out great giveaways, they will also exhibit “The Trip of a Lifetime”, a Chaco tour bus display.

Other planned in-store exhibits include a manicure spa experience at Marc Jacobs with their new make-up line, Marc Jacobs Beauty, and new product launches at Terra Cotta from Only Hearts, Hazel, and Coco Ninno. Retailers will be holding raffles for in-store giveaways as well.

This event is free and open to the public, although VIP passes are available to shoppers that spend $75 or more at any of the participating retailers, which will grant access to the VIP tent and exclusive entertainment performances. Join local artists, designers, retailers and entertainers as they come out for Savannah’s Fashion Night bash on Broughton Street to support the local art culture and economy of Savannah.

Wall Street This Week: Inspiring Food, Uninspiring Fashion

Radio Shack Stock Drop
Richard Drew/AP

From Chinese dot-coms offering Western investors a quarterly glimpse into their latest financials to a small-box retailer of consumer electronics that’s quickly losing its power, here are some of the things that will help shape the week that lies ahead on Wall Street.

Monday — Bull in a China Shop

The new trading weeks kicks off slowly close to home, but the same can’t be said in China, where several prolific companies will be posting quarterly results. Social networking website Renren (RENN) reports in the morning, followed by Web browser and security software specialist Qihoo 360 (QIHU) in the afternoon.

The two companies have been going in different directions. Renren has suffered from diminishing popularity in China. Qihoo 360, on the other hand, has posted scintillating growth. Two summers ago it launched a search engine that is now the country’s second most popular platform.

Tuesday — RadioShack Silence

It’s been a couple of years since I singled out RadioShack (RSH) as one of five retailers that won’t be around in five years, and it’s getting closer to becoming a reality. The small-box chain selling consumer electronics and smartphones has been struggling, and its profitless ways have turned this once-iconic chain into a glorified penny stock.

RadioShack is attempting a turnaround. It’s remodeling stores. It’s shaking up its marketing strategy. However, earlier this month, analysts at UBS felt that RadioShack was unlikely to succeed as it faces a credit crunch. RadioShack reports on Tuesday, and it’s likely to chime in with another big deficit.

Wednesday — Retailers on Parade

Tilly’s (TLYS), Chico’s FAS (CHS), and Tiffany’s (TIF) all step up with fresh quarterly financials on Wednesday. This time of year is ripe with retailers reporting since their fiscal calendars often find quarters closing a month later than calendar-based companies.

Tilly’s and Chico’s FAS cater to different audiences with their clothing, footwear and accessories. Tiffany’s is the high-end jeweler. Analysts see flat to modest sales growth at the three chains. They also unfortunately see net margins contracting at all three operators.

Thursday — In the Kitchen

There hasn’t been a shortage of restaurant initial public offerings over the past year. The challenge has been for them to remain successful.

Too many fast casual and casual dining concepts have hit the market blazing in recent months, only to cool down like a bowl of gazpacho.

Zoes Kitchen (ZOES) has been one of the rare winners. The unconventional chain offers up Mediterranean fare. You won’t find salmon kabobs or hummus salad on the menu of too many major chains. With just 124 eateries, investors are betting that there’s plenty of upside here. We’ll find out if that’s going according to plan when it posts its first complete quarter as a public company on Thursday.

Friday — At the Movies

There may still be some summer blockbusters that you haven’t checked out at the local multiplex, but some of the movies opening this weekend include Pierce Brosnan’s “The November Man” and the psychological thriller “As Above, So Below.” It’s a pretty soft slate going into the holiday weekend, but Labor Day isn’t as magnetic to exhibitors as Memorial Day weekend is a few months earlier.

Motley Fool contributor Rick Munarriz has no position in any stocks mentioned. The Motley Fool recommends Zoes Kitchen. Try any of our newsletter services free for 30 days.

Taylor Lautner And Girlfriend Marie Avgeropoulos Wear Street Chic Fashion

True

Taylor Lautner and his girlfriend spotted leaving the MTV pre-show event to head to a hotel in West Hollywood, LA

They have been dating for over a year now and things seem to be going from strength to strength for Taylor Lautner and Marie Avgeropoulos.

Lautner, 22, and Avgeropoulos, 27, were spotted leaving a MTV pre-show event in West Hollywood on Saturday before heading to a nearby hotel.

The pair – who met on the set of the film Tracers last year – both sported street chic fashions as they strode-out together.

Taylor wore a baseball cap, jeans, a dark t-shirt, blue vest and battered boots while his lady sported a leather top with print shorts and vintage boots too.

The young couple seem to be very happy together and are regularly photographed out and about in both Los Angeles and New York.

Canadian-Greek actress Marie seems to have made quite an impression on the former Twilight star while breaking millions of female hearts around the world too!
