Jordan Shine stealing Bottega Veneta's design | Fashion law post

Bonjour mes amis!  

GQ recently had an article about high fashion sneakers continuing to be on the rise. I found one pair particularly pinteresting:

GQ printed the picture above along with the following:
"Nike's Air Jordans have been knocked off by everyone. Yes, even the high-fashion brands. But instead of heading down to Fashion Week and smashing in pomaded heads, Jordan's designers are battling back. The brand's newest collection features its classic Jordan 1 silhouette in high-end leathers, simplistic solid colors, and a woven look that's more runway than hardwood." 
However, I am left wondering why the designers thought they were being so innovative. Of course the woven look is more runway. It is also more Bottega Veneta than MJ!

Well suited Saturday

Bonjour mes amis!  

I usually browse for suiting on the weekends. Not because I need more career clothing, but because I love work clothes. I enjoy checking out new suiting styles and keeping an eye out for cuts and colors that will flatter me. As a petite woman with broad shoulders I have bought suit tops in a 10 (although my waist is 25 inches) and matching bottom in a 0 just to get a proper fit. As I mentioned previously, the proper fit of a jacket depends on how it fits your shoulders. The rest of the fit can be taken by a tailor. I do not own one suit that hasn't been altered. 

Anyway, Net-A-Porter is having one of its twice yearly sales so I checked out their relevant pieces and I'm sharing some favorites below. 

These cropped screenshot images are from the Net-A-Porter app. 

DKNY's tuxedo-inspired leather-trimmed blazer contrasts soft mid-weight ponte with stretch-mesh panels and sleek leather lapels. Tailored for a loose yet contoured fit, it has lightly padded shoulders that create the illusion of a smaller waist. 

-For less than this sale price, check out the DKNYC Women's Long Sleeve Blazer with Ponte Side Panels.

Alexander McQueen's structured black crepe blazer is tailored for a feminine fit. The lightly padded shoulders and fluted peplum create a flattering nipped-in waist. We love the way the red lining peeks out at the back for a bold hint of color.

Missed the sale or want a cheaper version? Check out the creme colored Alexander McQueen Victorian peplum shawl-collar jacket.

 Do you own any peplum blazers or other untraditional suiting? 

Ever since I tried on a peplum suit jacket by Laundry (http://instagram.com/p/fawpOpHN1C/) I've been in search for my perfect peplum. This McQueen was is feminine but sophisticated all the while being chic and conservative. It could almost be the perfect one for me except for the price. I'm not in need of a suit so I can't justify the purchase and I particularly have too many black suits.
