With all due respect and veneration gathered from all over the planet, Tory Burch is surely eligible to expand their range of products in order to reach a larger market. Hailing from its small venture somewhere in Italy, this fashion-forward brand has transcended the unending demands of the industry and innovated when necessary.
Before, women drooled over their self-imposed logo patched onto a very sophisticated looking slipper. Now, they have stretched into offering all kinds of fashion items that will complete your fantasy wardrobe. Before long, Tory Burch and the people behind it will bask under an empire that was created through intense consideration of their clientele’s needs, all the while proving that they are not out of style yet.
Branching out to a store in a foreign land had always been a huge step. Like a leap of faith, this would either make or break a fashion name, depending on the reception it would receive abroad. Unless you’ve been an established business for over a century, planning to dominate the world through building off-shore sites is not really suggested.
On the other hand, fashion is a camp of bold thinkers and risk takers, so the notion of expanding overseas has always been part of the long-term agenda. With a reputation for supplying only the most functional and fashionable styles, Tory Burch has finally decided to spawn a pop-up store right in the heart of New York. So far, it’s being regarded as an amazing feat from this illustrious fashion brand.
Mainly offering their active wear collection, Tory Burch decided to test the waters of American buyers and put up a store located on Fifth Avenue, New York and its accompanying trends. Known to be a setting for nothing but the best brands in the industry, this long strip is frequented by famous celebrities and the most avid fashionistas.
Having this concept in mind, Tory Burch purchased a spot on Fifth Avenue, specifically in the Flatiron District which has been regarded as a cistern of fitness studios and business empires. Tory Burch has shipped their Tory Sport collection, which caters to people who want to look physically pleasing despite the strenuous physical activity during exercise.
Launched last September, Tory Sport generated favorable reviews and responses from those who have seen it, with high hopes of changing the game concerning the seemingly boring active wear lines. Tory Sport’s spot in New York spans a total of 3,900 square feet, housing the gems of Tory Burch’s latest offering to the masses. Tory Sport offers everything you can think of in active wear such as bags, shoes, accessories and performance clothing.
Prices start at $35 and the most expensive garment on the rack is at $495. Aside from the interesting ensemble that you’ll see on the stands, Tory Sport also boasts the store’s interior design which screams wood accents, athletic inspired stripes and a montage of sports superstars shown on their large screen televisions. Also, revel in the fact that Tory Sport offers well-celebrated Jean Royere pieces for their in-store furniture, adding a lavish touch to shopping until you drop.

The business of leather bags has always been a fascinating field in fashion that many gawked at over the last couple of decades. The sheer concept of owning a designer leather bag from a huge fashion brand is what most women, and sometimes men, strive for. Premium leather bags are now considered as a status symbol and the reason for this strong patronage is its quality.
Many fashion fans have even treated their leather bag collections as investments, and this idea has been proven so many times for so long. We can remember names like Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Gucci, and alongside this tough competition is a brand that’s as iconic as the product it sells, and it goes by the name of Coach.
At 75 years, Coach is an illustrious leather bag manufacturer supplying the boldest, high-end bags to men and women all over the world. They are known for their strict use of only the best materials, from the leather to the zippers, even up until the intrinsic stitches. Coach has established an everlasting name in the fashion industry. Like any successful company existing today, they set trends and innovations in fashion through prolific releases of different collections.
Furthermore, the audience and market that they have garnered over the past seven decades stayed true to them, creating a legacy that only they could deliver.
Managed by the profound fashion sense of Stuart Vevers as the creative director, Coach has taken things backward as they supplied the elegant style of bags from their past collections. What better way to celebrate Coach’s resiliency and reliability than by releasing bags that made them famous in the first place.
Coach has been known to have a firm grip on its roots and treating its foundation as the main force in becoming stronger and more appealing. Coach’s 75th anniversary birthed the Coach Vintage Collection for those who have adored the power of the brand since they started.
Stuart Vevers and the team behind Coach released three new bags that are vintage, nostalgic and awesome at the same time. The bags on spotlight are named The Stewardess, The Dinky and The Duffle. Originally, these bags were manufactured during Coach’s glorious years in the 1980s, when leather bags were at their peak in becoming as iconic as how they are treated nowadays.
Coach also gave the aforementioned bags a revamp that they deserve using techniques that the company has valued from their long and worthwhile service to the fashion industry. The motifs applied to the three vintage bags include Rip and Repair, the so-called Fringe and the incorporation of the Vintage Stripe.
Coach felt like only the most avid patrons should only have The Dinky, The Duffle and The Stewardess, making this a limited-edition collection. These precious leather bags will be in stores with prices starting at $595 up to $1,195, which is a great investment on the buyer’s end. Luckily for those who are residing in the United States of America, they can have avail of the collection by visiting Barney’s in Beverly Hills and New York.
For those who can’t travel to the US but still want the bags badly, they can be viewed and hopefully purchased from barneys.com.

The world of fashion gives opportunities for everyone to grow, shine and be famous as long as they have the right mindset and attitude. The next big thing in fashion designing does not require a degree in fashion from Paris, or your next idol gliding through the catwalk who never really thought of modeling a few years back. In fashion, it is everyone’s ball game, and luckily, the people have come to embrace it wholeheartedly.
We have seen a lot of collaborations among fashion companies and those outside the fashion realm such as singers, Hollywood actors and everyone deemed fit for a successful partnership. Not surprisingly, this melding of minds is very appealing to the market, and they are not close to ending even in the next few decades.
Just recently, singing supernova Beyonce entered the fashion scene by putting up her own clothing line, and as expected, it blew out of proportions in a positive manner.
Beyonce is one of the strongest purveyors of feminism and empowering women. With her latest collection circling online, many fashion analysts have applauded the singer’s latest move to promote her recent clothing venture. Enlisted as Beyonce’s latest model and style ambassadress is a fashion blogger named Jillian Mercado, and her story is way out of the ordinary.
Mercado is diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, 28 years old and is a known prolific blogger, opening up the information gateway for her followers to be aware of the latest in fashion. Choosing Jillian Mercado as Beyonce’s model warmed the hearts and uplifted the spirits of people with disability, as they can dream as much as they want without any hesitations.
Instagram welcomed the news directly from Jillian Mercado’s official account, and she mentioned how grateful she was to be a part of Beyonce’s retail collection. Just like how any typical model should be treated, Mercado was given full-blown attention the way it should be.
Rocking it with feisty hair and make-up, the fashion blogger transcended the barriers of her own wheelchair and showed the entire planet how beautiful can she be despite her disability. Furthermore, Jillian Mercado’s involvement as a fashion blogger strengthened this venture for both her and Beyonce’s party as credibility is established significantly.
The merchandise campaign is inspired from Beyonce’s latest hit tracks 7/11 and Formation, with their lyrics used as core prints of the clothing ensemble. Fans can cap different garments such as sweatshirts, hats and T-shirts, plastered with the song’s lyrics, making it stand out from your conventional ready-to-wear ensembles.
Beyonce’s latest fashion venture is now readily available online, and revels in Jillian Mercado’s participation to ensure that this collection will be a huge success.

Girls would never run out of ideas in putting on make-up. As part of their daily wardrobe, women have come to realize that for a specific look to be achieved, a complete set of make-up is necessary. There have been a lot of variations releases in terms of facial beautification, from lipstick to mascara, cheek tints and BB creams, some of these can always be found inside a woman’s handy purse.
Also, we have been introduced to so many feats and developments that have gone beyond our wildest expectations. There are diamond-crusted false eyelashes, upgraded concealers, facial milks and now, black lipstick.
A-listers such as Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Kylie Jenner have established that weird-looking lipstick colors are still fashionable. Yes, we’ve dealt with the plumpest reds, the most blinding lavenders and the intimidating pitch black. Many find the concept of wearing black lipstick unacceptable, remarking that this shade shouldn’t be worn unless you’re a weirded out goth-inspired woman. Furthermore, the fear of looking like you’ve swallowed squid ink is not pleasing to the eye, or is it?
The trend of wearing black lipstick can be deduced from musicians who have a quirky alter-ego leaning on horror and the esoteric. But nowadays, many fashion moguls have come to embrace the stark sophistication that can be found when wearing this color.
The boldness that it brings is something that will give you a second look from everyone you’d come across the street, and they might even applaud you for being so fashion forward in donning this color. Black lipstick, if you think of it is the most versatile shade that you can get, giving you an invincible aura.
Being sassy does not hurt once in a while, and experimenting with black lipstick is what fashion is all about; being comfortable with what you wear. If you can confidently sport a bright red or dull matte violet, how is pitch black different? Fashion requires you to be daring, and adding a stick of black lipstick to your essentials is acceptable and thrilling at the same time.
If ever you’d wear black lipstick on a sunny April day, put balance on your already striking look by applying a bright line of tint and color on your cheeks. The stunning contrast of black and whatever color you pick for your cheeks will send you to make-up trendiness in no time, which will be envied by a lot of women.
Picking matte instead of glossy would be the best option for you when wearing black lipstick. Aside from the fact that it would provide you with longer coverage, this would also ensure that you won’t look like you kissed a smoldering bark.
