Willow Smith Is To Die For

Edited by

Will Smith fell to his death off of a cliff in New Zealand?!? Not the Fresh Prince! What would Willow do? Well, PHEW! It was just a rumor. Not since Orlando Bloom spent the better part of a decade there filming Lord of the Rings has New Zealand seen such excitement.

Edited by

At A. Turen, everything is made with care. That’s just the nature of the designers Ashley Turen keeps in the store. Her hand painted pieces hold their ground next to select designers and and wild accessories. The painting is abstract, meant to give each garment it’s own pattern. How did Ashley get into painting? “I have loved painting since I was about 7 years old. It was only about three years ago that I changed my medium from painting on canvases to clothing. The same technique applies.” See it here.

BOUTIQUE CRITIQUE :: A. Turen : Look 2

Edited by

What, you wanna mess? With this? You crazy?? There might be some vintage teeshirt collectors out there that feel this way about Ashley Turen, for she takes these rare, valuable vintage tees and has her way with them. Crazy? Maybe. But I say fearless. She takes pieces of clothing that have existed in a certain way, and that have exact replicas floating around the universe, and transforms them into one-of-a-kind. Her style of painting gives the shirts an other-worldly, walking-through-space effect. And the cold shoulder cutouts on this one? Divine. And only at A.Turen.

Boutique Critique:: The Reformation NYC: Look 5

Edited by

The Reformation, named for both Martin Luther’s Reformation to a simpler approach, and for the concept of reforming vintage clothes, is a favorite among reformed shoppers like Leighton Meester, Emma Roberts, and Shenae Grimes. Their reasons for shopping The Reformation on the regular could be its low environmental impact from only using vintage clothing and dead stock fabric, or the one-of-a-kind quality of it being made by hand in-house, or the sexy effects of lace, washed silk, breezy prints and zippers. All of those points and more have driven Fashion Indie to it, making this week’s Boutique Critique sustainably sexy.
