THE YEAR FOR PINK - 2017 - EMPOWERING THE FEMININE MYSTIQUE AGAIN!

CELINE PINK JERSEY CAPELET DRESSSALVATORE FERRAGAMO PINK SLEEVELESS CREPE TUNICThe color PINK as a trend for Spring collections is a constant with designers around the world.   In 2017 however, the color pink also has a strong political symbol as a reaction to the November 16 US elections, and as a rebuke to Donald Trump and his misogynistic actions and attitudes. 

Of course fashion designers are the fastest artists to get showcase their expression of the times we live in.  Social and political attitudes are often seen first on fashion runways before they can be seen in artwork or films which take must longer to become public. 

Whatever your reason for wearing pink in 2017 - choose that shade that best flatters your skin tone and hair color.  There is sure to be options from your favorite fashion designers.  

Two runway looks that stole the show from Salvatore Ferragamo and Celine.   Of course, accessories abound. 

For any young ladies that need a refresher on all things FEMINISM - the The Feminine Mystique started a revolution in the 60's.  This time it's televised! WHY WE MARCH - SIGNS OF PROTEST AND HOPE - ARTISAN BOOKS- CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE INFO MAKE A DONATION TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD BY PURCHASING A PINK PUSSY HAT ON ETSY - CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE INFO

FENDI 2 JOURS - CHIC AND UNDERSTATED - EVERY DAY AND EVERYDAY!

FENDI SPRING 17 RUNWAY - COLOR BLOCK EXPLOSIONIt's so exciting to see FENDI shine in all it's fashion glory this past three years.   For YEARS the brand was an afterthought.  Overshadowed (in my opinion) by the GIANT personality of Karl Lagerfeld and his affiliation with this storied house, but more so by his GINORMOUS affiliation and success with CHANEL.  In fact, Lagerfeld has been affiliated with FENDI for longer than he has been twirling tweed at Chanel.  Karl is a font of creativity yes, but for too many seasons FENDI could almost be called CHANEL LITE.  FENDI PEACOCK BLUE 2 JOURS BAG - $2,350.00 - CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE INFO / COLORS IF Chanel had wide belts, Fendi had wide belts.   If Chanel had a bag in a bag, next season Fendi - bag in a bag... and on and on and on.

Lately however, the whimsical creativity Karl has unleashed in anime and cartoon like Technicolor has caused the brand to explode with interest.   All types of shapes and sizes of accessories, and of course those famous furs!   Even Karl's likeness on a FUR key chain or bag ornament became an "IT" things.  There haven't been this many FENDI bags on the street since the companies famous #BaguetteBag helped create the concept of the "it" bag in the 90's.

Smaller brands like TULESTE took the fur pompoms and RAN with it... and now those items are "IT"s.  Love those TULESTE girls!! 

Having said all that.. the FENDI bag I'm enamored with lately is one of the most classic, conservative, and safe handbags they make.   The 2 Jour (play on words for tourjours or tous jour) - meaning everyday and always.  The bag is fantastic.  It's the perfect size (there are several), and it's just formal enough for business uptown, and just cool enough for having fun downtown.   The calfskin leather is durable enough to take a beating and honestly, it starts to look better when it's worn in.  This navy version is my friends go-to bag. FENDI 2 JOURS BAG IN NAVY - HANGING AROUND THE FRENCH RIVIERA She is cool and chic and lives in the South of France.  The bag has bopped between NYC and The French Riviera for a year now - and just gets better!    Click images to shop the latest color.   FENDI NAVY 2 JOURS BAG - GETTING SOME SUN ON THE COTE D'AZUR
