American Dream

4th of July may be more than over but we love this music video by Marina and the Diamonds for their song “Hollywood”. All the over the top red,white, and blue glamor is just fabulous! Time to throw on some red lipstick and light some sparklers!

The Uniform Project

Sheena Matheiken took one little black dress and for an entire year transformed it into something new solely using accessories that were either vintage, handmade, reused or donated.

Everything That Shines Ain’t Always Gold

We love anything that has a shiny luster from sequins to lamé so naturally metallic outerwear is a must have for Fall! Throw on a glitzy  silver or gold jacket and dazzle away!

ACNE Resort 2011

Swedish design firm ACNE has really captured a distinct look with their  fluid drapery of jersey combined with special bio-leather from an old artisanal company. There is even an occasional metallic and crystal thrown in to bring in a “spiritual touch” says company founder Jonny Johansson. The silhouette is very menswear inspired and there are western elements from the feathers and the thick whip stitch in the leather. To get a similar ensemble try pairing shorts with a simple button up in neutral colors, topped off with a lightweight duster and wide brimmed hat. Come into The Gilded Closet and check out our large selection of blazers and suiting pieces that would be perfect for a look like this!

Complex Methodology

Balenciaga Fall 2010

By: Nicolas Ghesquière

The complexity of these shoes is so mind boggling,each of them so unique yet cohesive. Each element of stone, wood, and various skins added to the different shoes brings out an organic, bionic nature.

Zee Zexy Summer

We LOVE the Best of Brigitte Bardot CD for summer listening! It’s swanky, it’s sweetness, it’s French, and it’s just a bit of ol’ fashion cool.

We think it’s a perfect bit of fluffy fun for picnic, or BBQ music! We’re especially fond of Bubble Gum and Harley Davidson.

Brigitte Bardot.

This eye-catching spread takes a brave leap into playing with different textures and patterns combined with pops of industrial colors. Check out the clever layering of the different materials and the innovative fabric manipulations. The cotton candy hair is out of this world and perfectly accompnaies these funky outfits. Never be afraid to play with color and prints, if done properly the results can be amazing!

Frabricated Rustication

A 50’s throwback of lace and glorious high wasted full skirts paired with pretty jackets and wool knits. We especially love the pointy stilettos worn with ankle socks and the messy beehive wrapped in a simple velvet ribbon.
