When two people from different backgrounds collaborate, the end result can be rather stunning. That’s what happened when Charlotte Olympia and Tom Binns married their ideas.

Charlotte Olympia’s designs are whimsical, fun, and full of intense femininity, while Tom Binns tends to err on the side of anarchy. The two created this Punk Rock- inspired collection of shoes and handbags to coincide with the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The show will reveal early day Punk style and how it has gradually inspired the fashion industry over the years.

I remember in 1981 when the band Black Flag came to my high school (Katella) in Anaheim, CA. Punkers came in droves from surrounding cities just to see them play. It was a sea of rebels with mohawks and black, skin-tight pants. Doc Martins covered the walk ways, while bad-ass anarchists smoked their cigarettes and invaded our school’s front lawn. A huge riot broke out in the streets and within minutes the cops were there to break it up and cancel the show. It was the most exciting thing I’d ever seen.

I found myself wanting to be in the midst of the action, well, I was in the midst of the action, but wanted more of a screaming and yelling in the streets kind of action. Unfortunately, I didn’t quite fit in with my Dittos and ’70s-inspired, ruffled blouse. But, if I would’ve had these safety pin pumps and clutch bag, I may have been bold enough to run out there and shout a few words of my own.

I love their classy collaboration and the collection will be available for sale at http://charlotteolympia.com, and some Macy’s stores in the beginning of May.

The Skinny

Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe has teamed up with undergarment power house Jockey to create a new line of intimates. The items are known as Rachel’s “Major Must Haves” and will include body-slimming pieces for all shapes and sizes. Look for bikinis, thongs, shirts, slips and briefs that will hide, suck, smooth and control “certain areas”. Rachel best describes the line as, “cotton-rich comfort meets all-day curve control.”

Her label will be called “Preferred by Rachel Zoe” and is slated to hit stores like Macy’s and Kohl’s in mid October.

So remember, it’s not what’s on the outside that counts, it’s what’s on underneath that counts.

Happy “HUMP” Day!

Mother’s Little Helper


Madonna the “Queen of Pop” has chosen Georgia May Jagger (the daughter of legendary rock star Mick Jagger) to be the newest face of her clothing line, “Material Girl”. With daughter Lourdes (AKA Lola) at her side assisting in the marketing and designing, Madge’s junior line will go global this summer. The collection will be sold exclusively at Macy’s, and Georgia May Jagger will appear in all of the back-to-school ads.

“To be handpicked by Madonna and Lola as the new face of Material Girl is truly amazing,” said Jagger.

Congratulations Georgia May!

PS-  Tell your dad I want to make mad, passionate…Oh never mind!

Macy’s Muse

Macy’s has been on a roller coaster ride in terms of profitability for the past few years. But the mass retailer reported a strong 38% increase for the first quarter. According to CFO Karen Hoguet, “The strategic investments we are making are working and we continue to find new strategies to grow.”

And now the fun fair is about to begin. They are looking to Nicole Richie (the reality TV star turned designer) as their hot ticket to develop a cool and hip line exclusively for their Impulse department. She is working on inserting her personal “boho-chic” style into items like maxi dresses, asymmetrical skirts, cropped tops and fitted jackets. The prices will range from $49.00 to $149.00, and the collection will debut in 100 Macy’s stores and online in September.

“I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to work with Macy’s and create a collection that channels the individual artist in all of us,” said Richie.

I can’t wait to see the color choices and the fabric prints of her designs. And, if they really unleash my inner artist, then I’ll skip the amusement park (my normal mojo thriller) and start donning Nicole’s creations.
