ICU - IN PARIS.COM / Christan Summers

That's So New YorkThe majority of you may recall mentions of an interview with ICU - IN PARIS.COM Owner/Founder Christan Summers briefly last week; although it may have taken me just over a week to pull myself together and choose an image whilst piecing together the presentation of the interview, I have pulled the rabbit out of the hatand finally thrown placed everything together. Somehow during mine and Christan's conversation, we did manage to go off subject a little, and at a guess we most

Christian Peau

That's So New YorkIn addition to my growing obsession with various vintage-type styles, such as the classic military look (which is for another post entirely) followed by my recent admiralty for Buffalo Sweaters, accompanied by one of my oldest favorable trends which leans towards pretty much anything pleated, I have recently began geek-ing out on my laptop for hours on end as I flick through and research pretty much anything related to Japanese fashion. Previously, I thought that Japanese fa

I like shoes.

Heels in particular.  When normal people were wearing a sensible 3 inch heel, I was wearing 4 inches. 

When 4 inch heels came in vogue, I opted for 5 inches plus.  Soon, I may have to invest in stilts.....

As a friend of mine can attest to, there was a point in time where I was so used to wearing sky high heels that when I walked sock or bare footed, I would walk on the balls and toes of my feet as I was so uncomfortable walking flat footed.  Strange but true.

Anyway,  I've recently de

Christian Louboutin vs. Dolce Vita (Fur Boots)

While looking for fur boots, I noticed striking similarities between the Christian Louboutin Toundra boots (left pic) and the Dolce Vita Tatum boots.


Besides the color, the differences I see are the amount of fur and different kinds of fur each boot has.  Also, the platform is hidden in Tatum.  Of course, Toundra costs thousands more than Tatum (Toundra is $2,095 at Bergdorf Goodman and Tatum is $240 at Saks Fifth Avenue).

Your thoughts?

A friend of the site just sent thiswonderful little pic to us during a recent trip to her local bodega. We
spent at least 10 minutes trying to come up with something sufficiently pithy, sharp, and Post-Structuralist to fully explain the absurdity of this magical, wonderful collision of fashion
branding and anti-bacterial toiletries
, but failed. Instead we’ll just republish her appended comment: “Just found the only hand sanitizer that leaves you feeling dirtier than when it found you.” Really, wit

As New Yorkers, we’re no strangers to zero privacy. Our apartment wallsare paper-thin and sometimes morning rush hour subway makes us feel likewe’re in a toothpaste tube, but we put up with it for the sake ofliving in this mad, wonderful city of ours. However, there are somethings that can get a bit too close for comfort— and they come from themost unexpected source. Many resort to online shoppingbecause it guarantees privacy and, we assume, no judgment by nosycashiers or pushy salespeople. We e

Fashion houses are reaching out—far, far out—to clients, and the extra effort is paying off in couture sales. WWD recently discussed the high—and widespread— demand for couture, and we found their tactics to be…well, really interesting. Forget your prototypical snobby reputation of the high-end fashion world—because these houses are going miles (literally) for their clients.
