Ready to add a little edge to your son's wardrobe, without it going overboard? Just in time for holiday picture-taking, John Varvatos is extending his signature rock 'n' roll style to boys. The Fashion Star mentor and all-around bad boy of fashion has added designs for boys from 4-14 to his John Varvatos Star USA label, and they'll have lil boys looking picture-ready in no time.
While henleys ($73), hoodies ($86), and t-shirts ($50) make up a bulk of the collection, standout pieces include a tailored three-piece suit ($285), a corduroy sport coat ($160), and a velvet two-button jacket ($175) that would be perfect for New Year's Eve. We got a peek of the collection earlier this Fall and it's as cute (and soft) in person as it looks online. Best of all, Varvatos designed it to be interchangeable, so if you need a more casual look, swap a t-shirt for the vest in the suit or pair the velvet blazer with dark jeans. Either way, your son will be looking stylish in a snap!
Nicole Richie joined her fellow Fashion Star mentor John Varvatos in Pasadena yesterday afternoon for NBC's Summer press event. The pair was on hand at The Langham hotel to promote their series, which pits aspiring designers against each other as they compete to sell their wares on the racks of Saks Fifth Avenue, H&M, and Macy's. Nicole sported a laser-cut leather top for the appearance, and while she's built a successful fashion career of her own, she recently admitted during an interview that she doesn't sew! Instead, she said, her design process always starts with a great fabric. Nicole's recent foray into TV hasn't slowed her down when it comes to style. In fact, she just released the House of Harlow and Winter Kate Fall lookbooks and, earlier this year, also launched a special collection for QVC.
Milan Men's Fashion Week jump-started over the weekend — what a treat. For Spring '11, some designers are sticking to their signatures, and some are playing the fashion field. My favorite collections thus far are Roberto Cavalli, John Varvatos, and Gucci. But Versace made me positively giddy; think rockabilly meets macho man. So sexy, so fun. Key trends are neutral, white, and blue suits, printed and baggy pants, and shorts of varying lengths. Not to mention brown leather man satchels and a wide range of loafers. Be sure to look these pics up and down to catch sight of the styles and the gorgeous faces.
Hello, thighs of steel. Milan Men's Fashion Week is still going strong and I'm continuing the fashionable manjoyment with incredible looks from D&G, John Varvatos, Prada, and Moschino, to name a few. Shorts are back in full force along with slim, tailored suits — so svelte and sexy. The occasional pop of color and prints also caught my attention and how cool are Moschino's mud splattered pants?
