Designer Spotlight: Manfredonia NY

Behold Metropolis- the new collection of Anthony Manfredonia. It's sexy; it's playful; it's glamorous. Manfredonia is an emerging sensation on the fashion design scene- he has already been endorsed by Beyonce, who wore Manfredonia's white neoprene swimsuit as the main featured outfit in her music video "No Angel." Manfredonia is establishing himsef as one of the leading makers of corsets, which is his signature piece.

The main line features lots of sequins, satin, and velvet, with predominantly black and gold colors. Anthony played with plastic this season as well, used to make sultry jackets as well as accessories (hats, belts, purses) that add a pop of fun to any outfit. Manfredonia excels in precisely structured garments that create a dramatic femme fatale look.

This season, there is a new diffusion line called Anthony Manfredonia, which is sporty and playful. It is definitely more casual while keeping the look futuristic and sharp. The color palette is colder than the main line's- with muted warm undertones, shades of gray, blues, gradients, and entrancing fractal patterns. This line is definitely more simple and minimalist. The body suits are simpler in the diffusion line, and will look fantastic worn with pants for various occassions!

Stay tuned for future collections and developments– we will surely be seeing more and more of this brand!

The Arrivals' Spring 2015 Is Here!

The Arrivals' Spring 2015 Is Here!

If there is any way to summarize The Arrivals’ brand, it's precise design, uncompromising quality, and adjustability. 

For their very first spring collection, they made a few classic denim pieces, versatile coats (including my favorite AANDO Modular Duster, where removing its sleeves transforms the garment into a vest), and (not surprisingly for the company) a few lighter-build leather jackets, perfect for adding a bit of spring-time cool to one's wardrobe.

Winter Favorites

Winter Favorites

This winter, my skin has been struggling with dryness and irritation. I needed to change my skin care routine because my skin had accustomed to my old products, and was no longer responding well. This tends to happen after a while and is completely normal. That's why it's important to change things up. These are the products that helped me (and my skin) survive the winter so far.

What Is Love?

What Is Love?

The New York Times Bestseller Antifragile talks about things in our world that grow stronger from healthy stressors. The word "antifragile" describes systems that occur in nature, things that not only grow stronger from stress, but that actually weaken without positive stressors. A negative stress, for example, is a chronic stress; one that is never resolved and is ever present. Chronic stress breaks something that is antifragile; lack of stress weakens it. A positive stress is one that comes and goes, like physical stress from exercise.

Exclusive Interview With Christopher Ryan

Exclusive Interview With Christopher Ryan

On the subject of sex: "What I'm arguing against is the shame that is associated with desire. It's the idea that if you love your husband or wife but you are still attracted to other people that there's something wrong with you, there's something wrong with your marriage, something wrong with your partner. I think a lot of families are fractured by unrealistic expectations that are based upon this false vision of human sexuality." Meet Christopher Ryan, Phd., co-author of the famed New York Times bestseller Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships.  It's the winner of renowned scientific awards and referred to as "the single most important book on human sexuality since Aldred Kinsey unleashed Sexual Behavior in the Human Male on the American public in 1948.

Top 10 Songs - October 2014

I chose my top 10 songs of the moment for Elle magazine. Maybe a surprise, maybe not: I have been into electro for the past few years. It probably has something to do with my 10+ years of classical violin. Here they are!

I'm not for one man - CityLife October 2014

I'm not for one man - CityLife October 2014

I have started to speak more openly about my lifestyle to an audience in the Czech Republic. Recently, I was featured on the cover of City Life magazine which contained a fashion editorial and an interview with me. City Life is a supplement of the Czech newspaper Mlada Fronta Dnes. The article was provocatively titled “I’m Not Just For One Man,” and has stirred a bit of reaction. When the article released I was looking forward to join in the discussion boards and answer questions and concerns readers might have had for me. I was excited to see people’s reaction.
