Refugee Chic with the Toledos

Edited by

New Yorkers have their own way of braving what seems to be this never-ending Snowpocalypse that’s holding our fair city hostage. Harper’s Bazaar Editrix-in-Chief Glenda Bailey has a “beautiful and practical” Burberry coat. Isabel and Ruben Toledo trump her for practicality, however; they’ll be wrapping their shoes in plastic bags.

I’ve long awaited the debut of Isabel Toledo’s shoe collection for Payless. Just her name alone, evokes thoughts of fabulously unique offerings, whatever the design. This collection is no exception, and should prove to be a big hit among shoppers. (payless.com)

Simon Doonan’s Quirky Halloween Costume Collection For Target Hits 5 Days Early

Simon Doonan’s Quirky Halloween Costume Collection For Target Hits 5 Days Early

If you can tell, we are big Halloween people – as evidenced by our Snooki costume excitement – and cannot contain our glee over Simon Doonan’s costume collection for Target. The line, which hit online 5 days early, features quirky interpretations – ie. Spaghetti and Meatballs – a welcome break from the onslaught of slutty kittens and nurses that dominate the holiday.

But in typical Doonan fashion, he managed to slip a few pop culture references in there, too. “I thought of The Situation and those boys from ‘Jersey Shore’ when I did the T-shirt for the Pumpkin Punk Rocker costume.” Check out the line for yourself here:

Raindrops On Roses And Ruben and Isabel Toledo

Raindrops On Roses And Ruben and Isabel Toledo

Toledo Towels.

Bright Stephen Burrows and warm woolen mittens…

Though white paper packages tied up with strings are not on my list, these are a few of my favorite people. Unless you are dead, you know that Target is opening its first store in New York City…East Harlem to be exact. Although it is still a bit of a schlepp for me, seeing that I am a devout downtown-ite, the great news is that the Target folks had the where-with-all to engage designers that would resonate in their new neighborhood. Most notably, Stephen Burrows and the illustrious Isabel and Ruben Toledo. When Target launches those limited edition designer bits with the likes of Zac Posen or Alexander McQueen, that stuff doesn’t really float my boat. At least now, I get to crow about Ruben and Isabel Toledo’s swimwear collection and Stephen Burrows’ signature hand print T-shirts. Why? Because I lerve them. I have known Stephen since the early days of Studio 54…I was a Burrow-ette. And as for the Toledos, well, name me one other couple in the fashion industry that is as admired, respected and talented as those two, besides maybe Inez van Lamsveerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Go ahead….name another couple on that level…you see…ungats? Sorry, but Katy Perry and Russell Brand do not cut it.

Raindrops On Roses And Ruben and Isabel Toledo

Stephen Burrows…work.

Most importantly, these groovy designers are donating a percentage of sales to their favorite charities. Isabel and Ruben Toledo have selected El Museo del Barrio, while Stephen Burrows is supporting The Young Women’s Leadership School of East Harlem. So, check out some of the pieces that my peeps are doing…and buy, buy baby.

OK, I love the swimsuits…but can you make something for me, please?

Isabel Toledo to Design Payless Collection

Isabel Toledo is set to design a line for Payless, due in stores this fall, which will retail for less than $40.“I’m designing shoes that you want to see women wear on a day-to-day basis, you’ll see a very clean, graphic design, very utilitarian. I’m really interested in making shoes that women can walk in. Even for the evening shoes, I’m trying to address comfort and high style at a great price.”

Touring Isabel Toledo’s Midtown Maison

Touring Isabel Toledos Midtown Maison

It may seem like Fashion Indie is turning into Real Estate Indie, but with photos of swanky designer apartments floating all over the web, I can’t help sharing these eclectic pads with you indies! Isabel Toledo and artist husband Ruben gutted and converted a poorly maintained midtown loft into an inspiring and intimate city escape. Decorated with personal artwork, exotic plants, mannequins, streetlights and other unique items, the rooftop space (complete with full skylight) is a retreat away from the craze of the fashion industry.
