Designer Spotlight: Loeffler Randall

8675843_fpx

I’ve always been interested in fashion and style from a very early age. I’ve experimented a lot with my own style and I still do (and fully expect to for the rest of my life). While I love to try new things, there are certain styles and designers that I will always revert to for their sense of timelessness and ease of design. Loeffler Randall, while being a relatively newer brand (est. 2005), is one of those designers that come to mind.

I love her minimalist and straightforward designs on bags and shoes. The pieces can easily be paired with anything in your wardrobe because she sticks to neutral colors and patterns (sometimes with a hint of surprise). Here are some of my favorite pieces from the current collection.

What are some of your favorite styles? Who are some of your favorite designers?

Valentino’s Vintage Vibes

Valentino came out with a psychedelic design for their Resort ’15 collection that was inspired by their 1973 runway collection. ’70s style is actually trending everywhere and I like it. Every decade’s style seems to come back every couple of decades or so, it seems. I don’t mind, so long as there’s a new twist to it. This design looks refreshingly modern without losing it’s vintage vibes. I love the rainbow of colors and geometric design as well as the materials used, like the plexiglass. I think they did a great job incorporating the vintage and modern collections, such as with the Rockstud shoes and bags. My favorites are the cuff and chain bag. What do you think of the collection? Would you wear it?
