Features of 2011 Fashion Antelope finish suede in the World

types of leather

Leather is any tanned, toughened (yet pliable), dried, and dyed skin of an animal. Thanks to modern dyeing processes, most types of leather can be found in nearly any color. Some leathers, however, are best known for particular colors.

Buckskin: Pliable leather with a smooth finish from wild stag (deer, elk or antelope).

Chamois: Leather originally made from the Alpine chamois, a goat-like animal. Nowadays, it's culled from sheepskin. Chamois is well regarded for its supreme softness, absorbency and light tan color. It is pronounced SHAM-wa, or parochially, SHAM-ee.

Calfskin: Leather from young cows. It's a smoother leather, but it can be roughened to create "velour leather," or embossed with patterns and other textures. It is considered dressy and is usually found in darker shades (blacks and browns).

Cowhide: Leather from full-grown cows that is used for shoes, boots and jackets. Tough and durable, it can have a smooth or rough finish. You'll find it in all colors, but mostly shades of brown and black.

Lizard skins: Crocodile, alligator and other lizard skins are usually limited to belts, luggage or shoes. They sport a scaly texture and a nice sheen, and can be had in shades of green, Grey, red, and brown.

Pigskin: Pigskin is more commonly used in South America. It has little nap (fuzz) and is generally smooth to the touch and tan in color.

Ostrich: An "exotic" leather found on belts or shoes. Ostrich resembles a plucked chicken, and as such, has a "goose bump" appearance.

Suede: Suede is created when the reverse side of calfskin is roughened to the point of extreme softness. The resultant nap almost resembles velvet. Suede goods can be had in all major colors. 

Emm Kuo designer talks about her Spring 2011 collection
Emm Kuo Handbags is only 7 months old, but it’s already causing a commotion in the accessories world due to its exotic textiles and modern designs.
Parsons graduate and designer Emmaline Ranzman always knew she would go into fashion. Born in Taipei, Taiwan, and raised in New York and Hawaii, Ranzman continually felt a connection to the Big Apple and knew that is where she had to be.
After graduating from high school, she retuned to attend New York University, where she majored in design marketing and art history. Originally in the public relations and marketing side of fashion, Ranzman got an internship in London at the renowned LVMH Group, the makers of brands such as Louis Vuitton and Dior.
“It was the best opportunity. I got to see what a big corporation was like, but they’re also so innovative and artistic,” she said. “I got to see how being in fashion and being in design was meant for me.”
Ranzman returned to the mainland, but didn’t go into design immediately. She was offered a job at Entertainment Media Works, where she worked with stylists and designers for a new media start-up.
“The more I worked with stylists and designers, it made me realize how much I wanted to design … My true passion has always been in design,” Ranzman said.
Finally convinced, Ranzman decided to take the risk and not worry about the “starving artist” stereotype.
In 2008 she attended Parsons for a year-long intensive course in which she studied womenswear. Although it didn’t have an accessories emphasis, Ranzman definitely took a liking to the classes. Shortly thereafter, she worked for designer Catharine Malandrino.
“It definitely helped when I was designing my own line,” the 28-year-old designer said. “Catherine is so great with texture and color and mixing materials.”
She was lucky because Malandrino had recently started an accessories line, so Ranzman was able to contribute a great deal to the new division of the label.
Although her aesthetic is very different from Malandrino, Ranzman shares that love of texture and color.
“I always knew I wanted to do exotics, but I wanted to make it more youthful, so I mixed the bubble leather with python and suede,” she said. “I think mixing materials can give it depth and layers.”
She was also very focused on the hardware, which she said “makes a good bag stand out.”
While thumbing through an old book on military jackets, Ranzman was inspired to create her signature Emm Kuo toggle. She then drew it, and had it casted and molded.
Although the designer has fashion experience in almost every category, from marketing to womenswear design, she felt especially drawn to accessories.
“I feel like accessories, especially bags, all types of people can wear them – all ages and all body types,” she said. “When I think of certain bags that I have, a Chanel bag or a Balenciaga, those bags are so timeless that you can pass them on from generation to generation. It has longevity almost.”
Her Spring 2011 will soon be carried at Intermix stores, and she’s produced a few bags to be sold at A Man and A Woman in the West Village.
Her Spring line boast bags in creamy python prints, baby blue suede and glamorous metallics.

She describes her aesthetic as “feminine and romantic, but it’s always been a little bit edgy.”
She revealed that she didn’t want her line to be so strong that women would be afraid to try it, but rather a collection that has a bag for everyone.
“I wanted to create accessories that uptown and downtown girls could both wear,” she said.
Right now the designer is working on Fall/Winter 2011. She hinted at a new suede, some leopard and custom, handpainted pony hair pieces.
“The second collection is more for someone that likes handbags with a strong finish to them,” she explained.
Ranzman said she was inspired by her travels in Asia and old films such as “In the Mood for Love.”
When it comes to cleaning suede footwear, we all think about it twice before we wear, don't we? Are suede shoes too difficult to take care in? Suede is a beautiful fabric, but, unfortunately, it can be a challenge to clean. Plus, professional suede cleaning can be quite costly.Here are the some hints to protect and extend the life of your suede:
The first point to make is that treating your suede or nubuck shoes with a protective spray or finish will help to repel water and prevent stains. If that ship has already sailed, at least you'll know for future reference to protect before wearing.  
ACNE Wall Street Jacket
The Spring/Summer 2011 Collection takes shape with AcneStudios early. The “Wall Street Jacket” offers a solid silhouette to the traditional blazer cut. “The cool single-breasted jacket with notched collar that speaks business and so much more.” The fitted plain weave jacket comes in black or navy and the pants are optional. A nice breath of fresh air amidst all the workwear. It’s available at AcneStudios. 
Sneaker News Top 30 Sneakers of 2010
Last year’s Sneaker News Top 30 list was a smash hit with readers, so with 2010 coming to a close, it’s time to get down to business again and reveal our selections for the year’s best sneaker offerings. Anyone can make a list of their favorite sneakers, but the aim of the SN Top 30 is to capture a cross-section of the shoes that made the biggest impact on the sneaker world in the last year. After scouring all the countless kicks that dropped in 2010, we began narrowing down the best of the best and eventually put together what we felt to be a strong representation of the finest footwear to release during the last 365 days. The tentative top 30 choices were then passed along to members of our staff and other sneaker associates to rank from 1 to 30, with the average results eventually going on to become the final order for the official Sneaker News Top 30 Sneakers of 2010 list.

Features of 2011 Anorak Fashion worldwide

Athletic-inspired anoraks were fringe fashion last year, but are now mainstream. They’re a super lightweight, casual cover-up that’ll give your look a sporty edge with lots of style. You’ll find them shiny or matte, long or short, and neutral or colored. Fabrications like nylon, polyester and acetate give them a particularly authentic active appearance.
I like anoraks best when they’re contrasted with dressy attire, like a little black dress, dark jeans, slacks, swanky walk shorts and fancy shoes. This is a rather avant-garde, high fashion look, so it’s a little tricky to pull off if you don’t get the components right.
I’ll bypass this trend – the less sporty trench is more my style. But If you’re an active zip-up-and-go kind of gal, than the fashion anorak look might be for you.

Features of 2011 Annie Hall Fashion

Designer Jennifer Waters wears canvas trench and model Sheila wears a pleated dress in silk tie-dye — a sneak preview of Waters' House of Groves collection to be unveiled Thursday at LG Fashion Week.

Tracy Nesdoly Special to the Star
If crowd reaction is any indication, fashion lovers will be poised to pounce on the House of Groves spring 2011 collection to be showcased in the tents Wednesday at LG fashion week.
House of Groves, designed by Jennifer Waters, was the heart breaker earlier this year at the Toronto Fashion Incubator’s New Labels competition. The $35,000 prize was won by Montrealer Anastasia Lomonova, a perfectly capable designer of draped and ruffled frocks, but bloggers and commentators on blogs quickly moved into high gear lamenting the loss for Waters.
“She (Lomonova) may have won the competition, but another winner was present in the form of House of Groves, which was, I think, actually the superior collection,” wrote Briony of blog-to; many of her readers quickly concurred in support of House of Groves’ edgy equestrian-themed collection of slickly tailored dresses, pencil skirts and jackets in materials including leather, vinyl and silk.
That “classy carnality,” as Briony put it, that so revved the crowd last season may well have gone the way of the cherry blossoms in this next collection. While Annie Hall and the Duchess of Windsor might seem like very distant relatives, these disparate icons blended in Waters’ imagination and, voila, the prim and proper spring 2011 collection for House of Groves was born.
“My inspiration came from a felt hat I found at a vintage store, which reminded me of Annie Hall,” says Waters. The Annie influence is clear in the high-waisted trousers and a relaxed seersucker suit, but goes nowhere in explaining the number of ladylike dresses she’s created for the season.
“It is very ladylike, sort of what Annie would look like if she dressed like a girl. Or Wallis Simpson. Or what you might wear to a garden party,” says Waters. “Annie Hall was the jumping off point, married to the lady who lunches or goes to garden parties in the Hamptons.”
The overall effect is that of the country-club set., where there is a long history of some looking like they’re wearing Daddy’s old clothes grabbed from the mud-room, while others are ladylike and unflappable. Waters calls the clothes “the perfect veneer to a troubled world.”
Her focus is on careful tailoring and fit, high-quality fabrics, and silhouettes that not only acknowledge but celebrate the fact women have waists, curves and bums.
Waters calls this her second “real” season; she launched a year ago with a few styles for spring ‘10. She is also largely self-taught, though she’s been in love with fashion since childhood. “Whenever I read a book I imagine the wardrobe of each of the characters. Fashion is my calling.”
How she will present her newest collection is a secret until tomorrow. She’s doing an “installation” rather than a runway show, riffing on the idea of the garden party. She promises a surprise or two. “There are a few special things I have planned, but “I’m keeping them under wraps,” she says.
Given the “classy carnality” of the last season, there might be special surprise lurking in the collection, too.

Fashion most of the work is tedious and repetitive, time is not continuous throughout the year, while the results are short-lived fad can not see out. Therefore, practitioners need to fashion great confidence, patience and care. I even want to say, in the fashion industry needs to stand the loneliness.

Readers and customers often ask, “I envy you can do the things you like (refer to shop). What is your principal what?.” I do not know what to say asked a sentence can only be answered honestly: “Kate Zhou Prada handbags AAA business is my full time, from morning till night time is not enough, there is no other career out.”
For various reasons, many people think that opening a bag shop is things take a ride not so suitable as a woman’s hobby than a serious career choice. You better have a stable and relaxed heads, or more gold and considerate husband, then you can be a happy little woman, about self-pleasure to open a shop.

Happy little woman, of course is yes, but not me. The hobby into a career is very lucky, and the career development and growth is extremely difficult. Example, at present, we have just finished their day’s work orders for spring and summer 2011, followed the holiday sales season, as well as ordering and shelved due to a number of projects.

Nearly three years as a fashion to join the practitioners, I would like to share an experience. Because all beauty, fashion industry is a high visibility, and therefore an attractive industry. Who do not want to dress up every day, bustling flagship store at the opening ceremony, or sitting in airplanes all over the world to see catch on show? Actually far from it. Whether you are brand buyers, marketing or logistics management, fashion most of the work is tedious and repetitive, time is not continuous throughout the year, while the results are short-lived fad can not see out. Therefore, practitioners need to fashion great confidence, patience and care. I even want to say, in the fashion industry needs to stand the loneliness. Carefully think about what the industry is not in fact the case?

Gossip Here, we preview next year’s spring and summer bags. Each year we explore new designers, this is a great pleasure of our work, although to judge whether the new designers will be accepted, and the balance of old and new designer styles, materials and colors, is also a challenge. Today I will introduce several new brands, old and brand new look at the next bag.
I personally like the non-leather bags, such as canvas and nylon, love their light and lively and rich colors. Unfortunately, many customers associate the non-leather and cheap with, so we tried several times, only the 2010 spring and summer camp with sheepskin Kate Katherine Kwei series, with no doubt that the elegant and luxurious style, began to be accepted. Next spring and summer, we will once again challenge of non-leather, this time is a luxury brand known for nylon MZ Wallace.

Back in 2007, I started to pay attention a New York brand Chia, the designer is from Taiwan, June Chang. Few years, seeing more and more mature atmosphere Chia design, brand to take shape from the little-known, I really was the petite and lovely, amiable smile, sincere, humble and low-key attitude of young designers happy. Farah top of the bag, next spring and summer we will have a navy blue and olive green.

The third new brand, is from Los Angeles Hammitt. “Gossip Girl” in the third quarter of the Leopard Vanessa Westwood handbag, so I first noticed this brand. Angelina Jolie was a woman fighting to mention the children mother Shifan package also comes from Hammitt. Hammitt bags distinctive, fairly well recognized – the junction of leather and leather, all rolled out and lined with rivets, giving a pungent sense of bold, sexy and also that unique Hollywood straightforward. Brand slogan says, “to each bag sewn in Los Angeles.”

CC Skye is the most all of our designers adventurous. Of the CC, innovation more attractive than the profits. Hot models Lucy Bag and Niki Clutch, designers decided to be aborted. It was disappointing, and some even angry, CC Shuaishuai pigtails, smiling, said, “Sorry honey, we’ve got to move on.” CC Skye very exciting 2011 spring and summer, so I am most excited about is Annie Hall. The Woody Allen movie in the seventies heroine named small backpack, a nostalgic plot, but not antique feel; a loose style, but there is no hippie of the gas. CC high-profile elegance, invariably written on each bag.

UPW is known for woolen spinning, semi-worsted and fancy twisting, including 100% cashmere and blends with angora and cotton, in gauges ranging from 1 1/2 to 18. The spring/summer 2011 collection, based on very fine counts, includes rich rosy colors, ranging from coral to claret, lime green and French navy.

Cotton/silk, organic cotton/Modal and lightweight organic recycled wool are key. Milk protein/soybean, linen/viscose/Tencel, bamboo/cotton, linen/cotton/bamboo, linen/cotton and linen/viscose in heavy gauges for casual looks are also important.

Lots of texture is key. There was a good reaction to glitter, and Pima cotton is big this season, especially in blends with cashmere and/or silk. New and fresh for the spring was a cashmere available in a very fine gauge.
The world renowned Angora shawl from India is considered to be the foundation of the Sikkim state and is experiencing a touch of modernization. The traditional design of the handloom is now on its way for some makeover, both in its production techniques and designs.
For shawl aficionados and collectors, this is great news considering that the Angora wool, from which the Angora wraps are made, is famous for providing warmth and having unparalleled smoothness.
The handloom, as well as the handicraft department of the Sikkim state, is embracing new patterns and procedures so as to boost the Angora wrap's popularity. Their main aim is to incorporate embroidery as well as new motifs in the shawls, which definitely adds more flare to the hand-made stoles and gives them new look altogether.
To make this possible, a group of local Indian women and specialists on this industry, were especially sent to the state of Himanchal Pradesh so that they may learn new methods to improve the quality of shawl making. These women are even sent to Kullu for a thorough training.
Today, new motifs and designs are present in almost all the shawls of the Sikkim state. Consumers are making favourable responses on the merger of embroidery and innovative designs. Hence, the Handloom department is geared on using more information technology for creating contemporary designs. In their institute, they have added the Computer Aided Design (CAD) competence so they can make modern designs through CAD.
With more than 32 centers throughout the state, the department of Handloom is bent to protect its art and craft through intensive training, as well as providing jobs by employing the youth of the state.
Angora shawl is absolutely a produce to look at for people who arrange to have a glance at the Sikkim state. As mentioned, the fabrics are manufactured from the Angora wool, acquired from Angora rabbits which are raised locally. Hence, this place is the best to look for those fabulous and genuine Angora stoles.
It's not surprising that many people created a huge demand for Angora shawls. People look for these as they are warm and at the same time, utterly stylish. Though you may find very few colors (originally in three different hues - Grey, white and brown) among these, the quality is uncompromisable; and with these new designs, its' a must-have for people who visit or Sikkim or those who simply appreciate this useful piece of garment.
