New York Fashion Week here, with just a few days left before normal life turns into an elbow-jabbing, style-frenzied, cocktail-heavy New York Fashion Week we can’t help but think of the exciting things to come. January has flown past us quicker than Mo Farah, but we’re ready to pack our cold-weather kit and get FROWing. There are many things to look forward – or hope for – during NYFW: we’ll even see the silver lining of the frosty situation as on streets, it does, after all, generate some impressive winter dressing. Scroll down to see the eight things we’re crossing toes and fingers and faux fur scarves for…

Especially considering Yeezus is still reportedly on a mission to get KK onto the front cover of US Vogue. May the match-matchy super-stealthy outfit parade commence. Stilettos in sub-zero temperatures shall soon become the norm.

A shoe collaboration made in heaven, quite possibly even crafted by little fashion industry cherubs, will surely be the toast of the town. We’re talking of course about Manolo Blahnik pairing up with SJP. Although we’ve already seen the full collection pics online, this is the chance to try ‘em out for real. The actress has famously long been a fan of the designer’s stilettos since her days as Carrie in Sex and the City, so expect snaking queues of superfans when they launch in a pop up shop in Nordstrom on March 2.

The "Marilyn" exhibit features dozens of the Hollywood legend's Ferragamo-designed shoes, apparel from her wardrobe and photographs depicting her day-to-day life.

Here’s a glimpse of the sartorial style you’ll find at 10 of the world’s top fashion museums. Click through examples of the Fashion Museum Galleries that follow from all over the Globe.

Museo Salvatore Ferragamo
Florence, Italy

Housed just downstairs from the company’s flagship boutique on Florence’s ultra-chic Via dei Tornabuoni, the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo pays tribute to this legendary Italian fashion company’s products — and the global celebrities who helped make them famous. Naples-born Salvatore Ferragamo became “shoemaker to the stars” in the 1920s after opening a shop in Hollywood. With rotating exhibitions like “Marilyn” and an impressively displayed permanent collection of Ferragamo’s iconic footwear, this museum is a must-see for the casual and footwear-obsessed fashion follower.

Philip Treacy Hats Top Off Paris Couture Week

©ourtesy of Nicolle KeoghFashion Editor | JustLuxe.com Philip Treacy is known as one of the most extraordinary designers of luxury hats for his eccentric style. Treacy who is Best known for his ornate hats that have topped the famous heads of Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga, and Princess Beatrice of York at 2011’s Royal Wedding (along with 39 other attendees) the latest pieces for Philip Treacy to add to his repertoire were components of Didit Hediprasetyo’s Fall 2012 Couture  Treacy show.

The Philip Treacy vibrancy of the orchid in the purple floral hat is eye-catching, but also complements the plum color of Hediprasetyo’s dress. At a closer glance, you can see how much detail went into making this hat, including the small jewels that are dusted onto the delicate petals of the orchid. Floral was a prominent theme in the Treacy show, but other Treacy designs reflected his signature eccentric work. The black contoured ribbon hat reminds me of the shape and texture of Princess Beatrice of York’s hat at the Royal Wedding last spring. The whimsical shape of the material in this hat resemble Treacy signature style. For more information, visit PhilipTreacy.co.uk.


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.
