Sir Elton John & Lady Gaga join forces for ‘Love Bravery’

Lady Gaga and Elton John are teaming up, and not just in the recording studio. The music icons are releasing a collection at Macy’s that’s got a charity-driven, empowerment-fostering twist.

The name of the limited-edition line, Love Bravery, is meant to “inspire compassion and combat prejudice” through clothing and accessories.

The limited edition collection has shirts, outerwear, clutches, backpacks, scarves, keychains, pins, skateboards and even speakers. The collection will have vibrant yet minimal graphic prints that fuse both the artists’ musical and personal style.

Speaking about her inspiration and idea behind the line, Gaga said, “It’s an honour to team up with Sir Elton John to create this line with Macy’s. We need to make the world a kinder and braver place, where men and women everywhere are empowered to live with compassion.” Sir Elton John further added, “I love the idea of fusing who you are on the inside – your passions and dreams – with what you wear on the outside. Love Bravery is about the compassion on the inside to understand someone’s fears, and the bravery on the outside to stand up for them, and for yourself.”

Here’s a quick sneak peak of pieces that will be available as a part of the collection:

Think Pink : Breast Cancer Awareness!

From the beginning, millions of people have been supporting breast cancer awareness with the little pink ribbon.

In our country, Breast Cancer awareness is paramount, as several women suffer from this curable, yet life threatening disease due to lack of awareness!

While most of us may not sport a ribbon on a daily basis, perhaps we could incorporate a little bit of pink in to our daily wardrobe to show our support!

Here’s a quick edit of my favorite pink accessories!

My Pick of the Week: DOLCE & GABBANA Floral-print Raincoat

Dolce & Gabbana’s Italian-made cotton coat is one of my favorite ways to shield ourselves from inclement weather.

D & G

Pretty and practical, it is coated with waterproof PU and decorated with orange blossoms in shades of green, white and yellow. This piece is fully lined in polka-dot satin for a smooth finish. Don’t you love it?

Rain Check: Stylish Umbrellas that will keep you dry this season!

Talk about erratic weather – the monsoon dampen’s everybody’s spirit ( Including a fashion enthusiast in me). I hate having to swap my choo’s for rain-proof footwear, and my Bottega for a bag that’s not as chic but weather resistant.

However, all’s not lost – I realized i could have some fun with a chic umbrella! I started my hunt and boy I wasn’t disappointed! Here’s my pick of the 5 chicest umbrellas

1. Micheal Kors

30H4GAIT3E-0701_IS

Multi-function yet Glam! Got to love!

It has structured design that’s roomy enough for all my essentials! It’s  been crafted in croc-embossed leather for a truly exotic touch and comes with a detachable strap for the ease to carry it anywhere and everywhere. What more could a girl ask for?

2. FURLA 

Metropolis Furla Mini Crossbody BCU6_Ocean

A fun and fabulous crossbody from Furla!

This cross body is the epitome of radiance ;  to me the  Metropolis Bag represents the free spirit of the modern woman. Very easy to wear on its own or stack with others, it swings freely on your shoulder, across your body, or from your hand with grace.

3. Jimmy Choo 

KAYDEN- GLITTER FABRIC- CHAMPAGNE

Choo’s turn heads, always!

 

4. Emporio Armani

H&MxBalmain : CAN’T KEEP CALM!

It all started with a bang, Creative Director of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, took the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards together with his friends Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn, who were both said to be wearing pieces that will be retailed at H&M stores.

Dior Cruise 16

Set in the Le Palais Bulles is just that—a palace of terra-cotta bubbles set into a cliffside halfway between Cannes and Monaco, Raf Simmons presented his collection for Cruise 16.

The atmosphere the house loaned to the evening was utterly appropriate. “Playful, sweet…childish, almost,” said Raf Simmons.

The Dior heritage was evident throughout the show—the low-heeled, pointed shoes,  Dior’s classic femme fleur was abstracted in shimmering, crystal-strewn florals or, most spectacularly, in the net overdresses that restrained pleated underskirts took my breath away! I love that there was shape, but there was also ease.

Here’s a quick look at my favorite looks from the show!

The texture on these looks is worth killing for!

….and i cant help but LOVE these chic silhouettes! 

I Love how Raf went crazy with Plaid –  the hardy print may not be synonymous with beachy, Cruise glamour but trust  Simons to reinvent it – he whipped it into sweet yet structured sundresses with a touch of Bardot to them, slouchy trousers, and faintly Victorian blouses.

Take a bow, Raf, your collection was fantastic!
