Model Erin Wasson definitely caught our attention in this barely-there number. From the deep-V sheer and burnout front details to the strips of black fabric that serve as the dress skirt, it's official: Erin dared to show off some skin at the Globes InStyle afterparty. She accessorized with a black clutch, black heels, simple silver hoops, and au naturel makeup. Are you a fan of Erin's ultra-revealing look?Vote on all of our Golden Globe Awards polls here!
Esprit has been off our radar for a while now, but it looks like the brand, which was once our go-to for cute basics, has received a much-needed makeover. To kick off its new streamlined strategy, the brand enlisted top models Gisele Bundchen and Erin Wasson for its Fall campaign. "Our target consumer is now a woman who is forever 30," said John Gunn, continental president of Esprit North America, who also noted that all of its brands will be consolidated into one single moniker for an easier shopping experience. No doubt, Gisele and Erin piqued our interest, so we checked out the site in search of Autumn essentials, and — behold — we found some goodies. Check out out top three picks below:
- This peasant blouse is Parisian-grunge chic — especially when paired with black jeans and a leather jacket.
- We love this cool, print scarf. Pair it with a patterned top for a quirky mixed-print ensemble.
- We've been on the hunt for semirelaxed jeans. These tube slim jeans fit the bill.
Now peruse the slideshow to see Gisele and Erin working it in Esprit, plus a few more of our favorite Fall pieces.
>> Erin Wasson's collection for Zadig and Voltaire doesn't hit Net-a-Porter until next month, but here's a look at some of the items you'll find. Released to Who What Wear yesterday, these images reveal that the pieces are just as highly-covetable as we've been expecting — there's a sequined leopard jacket, a cropped leather vest with oversized buckles, and a very chic western-style shirt. Click through to see those and more, plus a few extra images from the Fred Meylan-shot lookbook.
>> Erin Wasson's new collaboration — the Erin Meets Zadig line, done with French luxury lifestyle brand Zadig & Voltaire — is set to be introduced during Paris Couture Week in July. The presentation will have a strong musical element, according to Zadig & Voltaire founder Thierry Gillier, which comes as no surprise — when Wasson designed her RVCA line, those presentations often had a live band performance; the last two involved Gang Gang Dance and Yeasayer.
But the similarities between her RVCA and Zadig & Voltaire collaborations stop there, Wasson says: “Zadig & Voltaire is a sophisticated French brand. I was aware of this difference [from RVCA] when we started developing the collection. We worked with more luxurious fabrics and materials.” Erin Meets Zadig was inspired by “life, classic cars, and Rod Stewart,” Wasson adds: “The collection feels almost sensual. I wanted it to be about basic shapes with subtle texture."
Wasson features in the Zadig & Voltaire Spring 2011 and Fall 2011 ad campaigns, as well as the lookbook for Erin Meets Zadig, shot by Fred Meylan in the Hamptons (a few images in the slideshow). Gillier notes: “Erin’s capsule is really different from what we are doing today. It allows us to offer an even more distinctive product. We are rock ’n’ roll, but Erin is even more rock ’n’ roll.”
The 15-piece offering, which includes a studded suede jacket, leather pants, a cashmere jumpsuit, and a python bag and boots, ranges from 90 euros ($120) for a cotton tank to 1,050 euros ($1,400) for a foal skin coat. It will be launched exclusively on Net-a-Porter in September, before rolling out in 80 Zadig & Voltaire stores worldwide. Though it was originally intended to be a one-off, the capsule collection could evolve into another type of project in coming seasons, Gillier said: “We are already exploring different ideas to do something new next season with her and with other people.”
