Collaboration

Anna Sui Loves INC

September 5, 2017

When Natalie and I found out that we had the chance to be a part of Anna Sui’s upcoming collaboration with INC International Concepts, a brand created for Macy’s, we jumped at the opportunity! When I was in high school, I remember coming across a picture from an Anna Sui runway show. It was exactly in that moment that my adoration for the designer and the way she viewed the world through clothing began. I grew to love fashion purely because of Anna Sui. And even better yet, I learned so much about fashion and its musical went hand in hand because of her work. I learn to love one as much as the other because of Anna’s rock and roll heart. It beat through every single collection she creates. You feel it in the fringe, you see it in the print, you hear it in the metallic crush of fabric as it rubs against you on the dance floor. 

What I loved most about Anna, and what I felt the most inspired by, was how she always stayed so true to herself with her creations. Her brand definitely grew and reinvented with each collection, but always in the most subtle of ways. No matter what, it felt distinctly her. Her voice was in every fiber, and that was something so special. Her clothes are made for those who strive to hold onto their individuality, and express it to the world. To me, she was the greatest, but also for some reason I felt that she one of the most underrated of designers. Her name always rang a bell, but most didn’t know what exactly she was all about. With Anna, it’s always about the mood of the music influencing the way we tackle the art of dressing ourselves. It’s about time that Anna Sui be viewed by an even greater audience with her collection for INC International Concepts. She sparked my creativity in my younger years, and very much so today still. I look forward to seeing that same spark with a new set of Anna Sui fans with this new INC International Concepts collection.

This collection is a well-done mix of previous Anna Sui collections. The best thing about Anna Sui is how distinct her style and eye are. When I look at this collection, I feel her aesthetic in every way. No corners cut. They could basically be straight off the NYFW runway. The quality and design is exactly on point, which I applaud Macys for. Heavy patterns and her famous metallic sheen. Fringe for days that move and sway. Only Anna could make a sporty trouser work in the best way with a star-printed fringe blouse. Only Anna can come up with the concept in the first place! Natalie rocked the denim mules, I did the velvet heels. The heels in a color so warm and earthy, the idea of Anna’s flower child roots is inescapable. All I want to do is dance to the Velvet Underground and feel the world like Janis Joplin in this collection. Natalie wants to do the same. Basically, this collection was made for us. And we are so excited to show you guys a peek of it right now šŸ™‚ #SuarezSister style.

& Other Stories Los Angeles Atelier

April 1, 2017


Natalie and I had the pleasure of flying back home to Los Angeles for a few days to visit the brand new & Other Stories LA Atelier, and brainstorm a shoot featuring the brand’s Los Angeles inspired collection that just hit stores. We have visited the Paris Atelier last summer, which felt very, well, distinctly Parisian. A little bit moody. Definitely the home of French artists. But the Los Angeles atelier was exactly what I pictured it to be. Bright and sunny. Windows for days. Succulents and long, leafy potted plants at every corner. Books on surfing and other California type things. Rugs for lounging bare legged and bare foot. Bohemian, minimal is the best way to describe the environment, which was the perfect backdrop for the new collection that we got to explore alongside the designers. What a beautiful intro we had to the collection and history of the Stockholm-based brand. Now we’ll have to see the Stockholm Atelier next, and we’ll keep you updated on that. I’ll be posting the images from our & Other Stories shoot in Venice, California. Hope you love. For now, enjoy your Saturday! I’m relaxing at home after our trip, tidying up my home and catching up on some editing and writing. Saturdays spent inspiration gathering are my favorite.

The #SuarezSisters Guide to Tevas + Socks

September 28, 2016

teva-socks68-resized

If you have been following my blog and my sister Natalie‘s blog for awhile, you probably have come to know how much love we share for the footwear brand Teva. We road tripped through the South to Bonnaroo (New Orleans, Birmingham, Nashville) in them last year, and we adventured through Costa Rica in them just this past summer. I gotta say, we’ve gone a long way with TevaĀ sandals on our feet. Not really sure we could have adventured as much without them. They lived through torrential tropical downpours, desert sandstorms, intense sweating sessions, foot crushing in large groups of dancing ravers, and muddy hikes through the rainforest. And a whole lot of other things in-between, I’m sure you can imagine.

This time around we partnered up with Teva to show you all a new side of the brand. It’s fall now, and we still want to wear our TevaĀ sandals! So what to do?! Why . . . socks, of course! Socks and sandals have become a much-talked about trend a few seasons ago on the runways, and Natalie and I got addicted to this pairing. Some might think it’s a weird trend to take on, without a doubt semi-inspired by suburban American Dads some may say, but we believe that with the right kind of colors and texture it can really add to an outfit. What’s the point of having fun, sparkly disco ball socks when you can’t show them off, right?!

Natalie and I styled our TevaĀ sandalsĀ in five different ways that fit into our lives here in New York City . . . literally bringing TevaĀ sandals and socks to the city streets. We definitely turned heads, and for sure we made a statement. We hope our style guide inspires you guys to do the same and experiment with your TevaĀ sandalsĀ and socks šŸ™‚

Check out the Teva blogĀ for a deeper look into our looks and how we came up with them.

The Beat of the Red PS1

For years, I’ve been eyeing the coveted Proenza Schouler PS1, but mostly in darker colors that fit in with the monochromatic color scheme of my current bag situation. But when I found out about the existence of the bag in this playful party red on Farfetch, the deal was sealed.Ā Can hardly say no to anything fire engineĀ red actually. Instantly, it was like my bag game was just upped a million levels. I like that the color of thisĀ bag inspires me with its boldness. A reminder that confidence is key, and desire and passion are indisposable. A red so red it motivates like fire. The shape of it is so fully functionally in every sort of way,Ā itā€™s hard to find a reason to say that this is indeed not the perfect bag ever made. Yes, thatā€™s a bigĀ statement, but hey . . . Iā€™m feeling bold. This one extends the summer season for me while at the sameĀ time signifying the beginning of fall. Spicy like a tropical summer, but warm just like a mulled wine. Itā€™s theĀ best of both worlds. And I’ve been wearing it in so many ways already, especially since itā€™s so easy to ampĀ up an easy going, simple outfit. But my favorite way to wear it is with even more colors. Maybe even moreĀ red! Why not?! What I’ve learned from years working in fashion and running a blog about it, is to have fun with the things you put on your body. It’s always worth it.
