What Theyre Wearing Now-widcomm

News-and-Society We all know about the style kings that are New York and Los Angeles. New York, one of the world’s fashion capitals, remains ever-changing in the style department, yet consistently known for being as much of an arbiter of what we wear on the street as having streets full of stylish people whose eclectic looks serve as muses for the major designers themselves. And then there’s L.A., where everyone is a rock star or a starlet, or at the very least you’d think so after a stroll down Robertson or Rodeo. Well, it must be nice. For the rest of us living "in the fly-over states" we don’t have as much style inspiration while we’re strolling the aisles of our local grocery or perusing the big name stores at our local mall. But that doesn’t mean we have to starve. For shoppers with a discerning eye for the unique and inimitable, it might be a little harder to keep up but there are hot looks out there that this shopper should know about. So step away from the household-name labels and get noticed when you try out some of the hottest niche designers on the style scene. Think, the kind of cutting-edge, lesser known designers whose products get worn by famous designers and Hollywood style makers; the kind of goods you don’t find outside of major style capitals like New York, London, Milan and Los Angeles. For fall 2011, we’re talking about bright young things like M. Cohen for one-of-a-kind men’s and women’s jewelry and CC Skye for women’s bags and jewelry, as well as an inventive selection of other smart, sexy, artful apparel and accessory lines you won’t find just anywhere. Be the first to wear some of these looks in your city or town and .mence to get noticed! CC Skye – Red Carpet Clutch in Black Python Leave it to CC Skye to rock out this little treasure. Just one of many knock-out pieces that give wearability to edgier, outre inspirations, this clutch can add some swagger to a little black dress or upgrade a tipsy night on the Strip in jeans and spikes. Gold studs evoke the ruggedness of the classic biker ethos with the unmistakable whiff of Rich Girl Chic. Vivid Braille – Men – Universal Scarf/Navy The scarf’s the thing. The last few seasons of winter-wear have seen the scarf rise from the rank of functional afterthought to outerwear centerpiece. It’s never been easier to add drama, whimsy or a little incognito without looking like you thought about it too much. And the bigger, bulkier and more enveloping the better. Vivid Braille throws their yarn into the ring with this luscious multi-functional scarf. Its soft handmade texture of alpaca and bamboo belie it’s insulating masculinity. At 70" and 18" wide this scarf is ready to take the lead on the sartorial stage. BLOCK HEADWEAR – Knickerbocker – Natural A man who knows how to look in a hat probably knows how to do a lot of other smart things. Nearly sent the way of hunting and gathering by the ubiquity of the baseball cap for American decades, we wel.e the resurgence of diversified headgear for guys want to look good without feeling overdressed. This crochet straw trilby from Block Headwear can go from the cocktail party to the beach and features a moldable wire that allows the wearer to shape the brim. In natural and black. J Shoes – Cadet J Shoes gets it, giving the classic .bat boot a leaner, more dressed-up makeover without losing the rustic masculinity of it’s military chic. Expect oiled leather, brass vintage hardwear, corset lacing and a welted unit bottom with stacked leather heel, brass nails and carbon rubber forefoot for flexibility and traction. For .fort, its padded sock linings are much appreciated. Boot shaft is approximately 10 inches, with a heel height adding one more inch of confidence. M. Cohen Double Wrap Lava Stone Bracelet You’ve seen those layered, mix-matched bracelets and chains dangling on the wrists and necks of the most innately stylish celebs like Lenny Kravitz, Drew Barrymore, Nicole Richie and others in countless magazine photos. Well, chances are it’s Los Angeles-based jewelry designer Maor Cohen who’s responsible for contributing to this great rock’n’roll-Hollywood look that can work with rangey bohos, red carpet bombshells or just a pair of old jeans and a great tee. It might look hard to pull off at first but you’d be surprised at what a little inner swagger and one outstanding centerpiece to this layered look can do. A great piece like this 15-inch two layer bracelet with mixed brass, sterling silver, copper and turquoise beads is a perfect starter to a collection or a .plement any pre-existing one.

NIALAYA- Men’s Crystal 10mm (lava stone and black crystal) Danish-born Jannik Olander reinterprets his love of Far East styles and textures in eclectic jewelry designs for his Los Angeles-based .pany, Niayala.
