Los Angeles Fashion Week Recap: ConceptLA Fall/Winter 2014

Between two stage sets, ConceptLA delivered both informal presentations and runway shows showcasing what’s to come for Fall/Winter 14 to a crowd of trendsetters that just looked “so L.A.”

Here’s a recap of the designers we stumbled upon, and based on the shows, our predictions for fashion during the upcoming seasons.

Mathiasen 

Have you ever noticed that each season’s fashion trends featured in your favorite magazines are essentially the same trends from the year before, just with slight upgrades? It’s not just you. In viewing Mathiasen’s Fall/Winter 14 Collection, we’re confident he’s noticed as well.

In an informal presentation, Mathiasen showcased a collection reminiscent of all that has been Fall fashion trends for the past two years: exposed hardware, hues of oxblood, mustard yellow, burnt red and orange, and leather detailing! However, Mathiasen takes the seen-before Fall trends a step further by striking the perfect balance between masculinity and feminine flare.

The final verdict? Mathiasen’s Fall/Winter 14 line is so on-trend that it’s practical and safe. The collection will resonate with the modern woman that needs to add some edge to her everyday work wear.


Wayward

Leather, leather and more leather. From pants to vests, moto jackets and even single shoulder overalls, leather dominated the runway during our preview of Wayward’s Fall/Winter 14 menswear collection.

While it’s commonly known that leather is a staple for the colder seasons, Wayward’s collection differentiates itself by embracing not-so-common hues and textures. The line showcased pieces in shades of rich red, cognac and chocolate brown. Our fave was a textured cognac moto jacket paired with brown leather pants – but we’re pretty sure the average beau can get away by pairing this with dark denim.

We can’t forget to mention having the privilege of sitting next to social media star, Iman Crosson, A.K.A. Alphacat. Men, please take note from Alphacat who already had the go-to menswear Fall outfit locked down: denim, a white tee and Wayward.

Anaes Erlking

Envision a Great Gatsby themed flapper party, but strip down the dresses, and you’ve got what was Saturday’s informal presentation by Aeneas Erlking. Her lingerie collection is flirty, romantic and channels everything we love about being a girl!

Within her collection are pieces in lace, polka dots, tulle and the curve ball: metallic! Erlking’s line includes two printed robes that shine beyond the rest in a slate blue metallic tone – we fell madly in love with these pieces to the point where we began imagining the robes with outfits that would allow us to rock the pieces outside of the bedroom!

CAM4 To Sponsor The Ms. EXXXOTICA 2017 Competition

EXXXOTICA, the nation’s largest event dedicated to love and sex, just announced that webcam portal CAM4 has signed on as a show sponsor for 2017. CAM4 will be sponsoring and presenting one of the expo’s most popular events, as well as one of its newest initiatives for EXXXOTICA Chicago in June and EXXXOTICA New Jersey in November.
Developed as a community with a focus on social networking, CAM4 is much more than a traditional webcam site, and they are now the presenting sponsor of SW!TCH, EXXXOTICA’s LGBT showcase.

SW!TCH was created as a means for LGBT vendors, talent, and performers to become part of the EXXXOTICA family.

Summer Survival: Pick the Most Breathable Fabrics

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."

SUMMER FABRIC "INGREDIENTS"

DENIM
COTTON + STRETCH = CUTE BUTT: Cotton jeans are the lightest for summer because they are airy and breathable, however, jeans with a small content of stretch are the most flattering. They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content. A jean with either a 98% cotton/2% lycra or 96 % cotton/4% Lycra fabric, is a good combination. J…
