Nars celebrates their 15th Anniversary! Gorgeous fashion icons such as Naomi Campbell and Marc Jacob took pictures of inspiration which reminded them of infamous Nars color palettes. I believe that Nars has an awesome variety of makeup color. I personally bought about 3 tubs of Turkish Delight from Sephora before I realized it really wasnt my color. Check out more pics from the 15th anniversary here.

I definitely didn’t take any pictures at tailgate. Lets just say I was busy consuming what the festivities had to offer… Non-the-less, cameras were everywhere! I made sure to hop in as many snapshots as possible, including this one featured on Lateboots.com. It was fun seeing friendly faces, new and old in addition absorbing the last decent days fall has to offer…

 

Tommy Who?

25 Oct

Tommy Hilfiger, remember him? Well, he’s back. According to WWD.com, “Thursday, Tommy Hilfiger unveiled the first Tommy boutique in the US. It’s a 1,000-square-foot store in Manhattan, in a former Hilfiger collection location.” It’s said that Hilfiger plans on converting 2 other US store in Tommy boutiques as well.

“This is downtown prep. It’s quirkier and younger and more irreverent,” said Tommy Hilfiger, interviewed at the Bleecker Street store Thursday.

Tommy’s act to open all new stores is in effort to recreate his image. Lets be honest, Tommy Hilfiger hasn’t been popular since the late 90’s.  By re-establishing his brand, he can potentially capture a new, younger market. The line will be available at tommy.com at the beginning of spring. Tommy’s brand still carries the same aesthetic; It’s preppy, collegiate and republican… Way to go Tommy.
