>> Not to say you shouldn't show off that amazing one-piece swimsuit or cute bikini, but for those times when you're out of the pool and not yet ready to put on real clothes, we suggest you elevate your postswim ensemble with options such as a silk printed cover caftan from Mara Hoffman, a bonny yellow dress from Vix, or a fancier bright teal dress from ASOS. The options are endless, but we edited it down to our 12 favorites — peep them all in the slideshow.
Loomstate for Barneys V-neck tees (made of 100 percent organic cotton and available in six colors) are selling for $40 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.
Eviana Hartman, the designer behind eco-friendly label and Ecco Domani winner Bodkin, has signed on to design a capsule collection for Hessnatur, a German clothing company known for its use of 100 percent natural fibers.
Liya Kebede's children's clothing line, LemLem, has finally hit the racks. The model debuted the collection at the J. Crew in NYC looking slick as ever in liquid leggings and a black blazer. Her LemLem striped scarf breaks up the black, while her boots lend a tough-girl edge. The pieces she's wearing aren't revolutionary, but I applaud her for fusing them in a uniquely fashionable manner.

>> THE MODELIZER —Liya Kebede just took Paris Fashion Week by storm — and landed opening Balenciaga spot — and now she's owning in another area. She's becoming the first model to be the exclusive face of a J.Crew catalog, and the retailer is picking up pieces from her handmade children's clothing line, Lemlem, to sell in stores and online as part of their children's Crewcuts line starting in April.

I absolutely love Liya Kebede. Just look at her! She always manages to look both adorable and sophisticated. And it sounds like she will be applying those qualities to a line of children’s clothing called LemLem, which means “to bloom” in Amharic, a Semitic language from Kebede’s native Ethiopia.
Expected to launch early next year, LemLem is geared primarily toward children aged three months to 10 years old. All the teeny garments will be handmade in Ethiopia and combine some traditional weaving and embroidery techniques with modern silhouettes - sounds really interesting! And yes, Liya has two tots of her own - a six-year-old son named Suhul and a two-year-old daughter, Raee - who I'm sure are her muses.
