>> "Love is in the Hair" is the name of Delfina Delettrez's new tress-inspired jewelry collection. Whimsical, yes, but that should be no surprise from a designer known for her witty, surrealistic approach. "Love is in the Hair" has Delettrez revisiting some of her favorite themes — anatomy, memory, nature — resulting in a collection of keepsakes which are both amusing and appealing. Fashioned from unusual materials, the collection is filled with what read like tiny works of art; there are hairpins decorated with lips, heart-shaped resin pendants hanging from studded-leather collars, precious metal and stone "DNA" necklaces, and a miniature metallic purse that dangles from a rose gold ring. Click through to see a selection of pieces from the collection, plus the fantastical hair sculptures — inspired by historic women — Delettrez created to present the collection. Available March 2012 at Opening Ceremony.

For Spring 2012, Fendi embraced effortless, ladylike Milanese dressing with perfectly tailored shirt dresses, breezy A-line skirts, and fitted jackets. Cool cutouts, perforated suede detailing, and peek-a-boo lace provided intriguing accents while bouffant hair and futuristic cat-eye sunnies added to la moda Italienne! To see all the fabulous Fendi looks, watch our runway now!
For Spring 2012, Fendi embraces sexiness, humor, and ladylike dressing all at once. It's what might happen if more buttoned-up types let their hair down without really surrendering their aesthetic. Essentially, structures and silhouettes remain intact with shift dresses, suiting, coats, and evening dresses — but each gets an edgy update with cutouts or rich fabrics like suede and leather with perforated, dot detailing carried throughout. Exceptions, like furry textural vests and long, sheer black gowns make their appearance, but overall the work speaks mainly to modern, pulled-together types who favor modern-cut classics like stripes on their blouses and a great skirt suit.
