Aleksander Siradekian: The man, himself.

 

Aleksander Siradekian is a new shoe designer that’s managed to keep a low profile until now.  The brand’s signature heel is recognizable by a unicorn-like flowing fringe off the back of the heel.  Every year, the Russian designer’s beautiful, feminine heels are shown at Paris Fashion Week.  I recently stumbled across these red and black houndstooth stilettos, and am absolutely smitten.  Wear these to a holiday party with a LBD or with an A-line mini-skirt and tights.

Recently, I stumbled across a sushi-printed jacket, and had to track down the designer immediately.  It turns out, the jacket was the product a new fashion label known as Au Jour Le Jour.  The Italian label debuted in 2010 as brainchild of designers Mirko Fontana and Diego Marquez.

The designers combine their complementary and diverse skill sets and backgrounds to create elegant, yet quirky and sophisticated, yet totally unique designs.

Their whimsical prints can be found on celebrities and fashion icons alike, as well as through high-end department stores and prestigious online fashion boutiques, such as FarFetch.

Their lines include both mens’ and womens’ wear, and prices range from $200 to over $1,000.  My personal favorites include this bus-printed skirt, this pair of sequin-embellished denim shorts, and this apple-print playsuit.

Life, Love & The Pursuit of the Perfect Hat

Hats are the ultimate fashion accessory, and can make an outfit quickly go from boring to chic in a matter of seconds.  Not only so, they are amazing for those days when you feel like hiding out from the world (ahem, pair them with sunglasses and you’ve got a hangover fashion cure), as well as work as a quick-fix for those bad hair days.
