Bottega Veneta Goes Green

Bottega Veneta may not rank highly in the minds of animal lovers, seeing that their spring 2012 collection alone featured glazed crocodile, grommet-covered ostrich, and lizard skin accessories.  But their standing with tree-huggers just went up. The luxury brand’s Milan headquarters was recently awarded a “Carbon Neutral 2010” certification. It’s apparently just the beginning for Bottega though. The brand is planning to reduce greenhouse gas emissions during their fashion week and sales campaigns—times of the year when pollution spikes, according to the brand.  No surprise, considering the amount of power, energy, and air travel that goes into producing a single show. Luckily they’re already moving in the right direction by using carbon credits to offset additional impact. Bottega isn’t the first luxury label to go green, though.  Stand-out predecessors include Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood who takes part in the International Trade Centre’s ethical fashion program.  Maria Cornejo‘s also on board—she used fabric made of recycled cassette tapes in her pre-fall collection. All in all, this is certainly a spring trend that we can get behind. – – follow more on Bottega

Halston Documentary, ‘But This Time It’ll Be Good’

Story written By @ Stylecaster.com

We've been gearing up for this holiday for a while it seems and now that it's just around the corner, we can almost smell mom's home-cooked dinner and feel the warmth of our fuzzy flannels. With that in mind, we made a solid list of movies we plan on enjoying for solid hours (let's be honest – days) that we haven't had a chance to watch just yet.  In our quest to ensure we have an ample veg-out sesh, we stumbled upon several movies that have yet to be released (Batman anyone?!) but one got us super excited: Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston. No, this isn't about a 90's nightclub -- we have Limelight for that - this documentary focuses on the life, tragedy, and talent of the man behind Halston.  Finally! Film-maker Whitney Sudler-Smith interviews Halston's muses, friends, and clients in this film that depicts the designer's career starting as a hat maker at Bergdorf Goodman, through the glitter-speckled nights at Studio 54 and ultimately, selling his namesake to the likes of JC Penney, decades before any other brand caught onto the diffusion line trend.We’ve been gearing up for this holiday for a while it seems and now that it’s just around the corner, we can almost smell mom’s home-cooked dinner and feel the warmth of our fuzzy flannels.
