We love Black Panther, and here at Dandelion Chandelier we’re a bit Wakanda-obsessed at the moment. If you’re similarly afflicted, there are many more layers to explore in this cinematic universe.
We can’t stop thinking about the amazingly chic wardrobe created for the film Black Panther. Where did the inspiration for those looks come from? We admit, we’re kind of obsessed with this movie, in no small part because it’s so stylish. Costume designer Ruth E. Carter has achieved a first, at least for us: a super-hero movie wardrobe that makes us want to shop the outfits. Wakanda style rocks – but where exactly did it come from?
The wave of luxury designer collaborations continues to roll on, with some unlikely pairings available now, or dropping in the coming weeks. Spring is the season of unusual affairs and the attraction of opposites, and some of these partnerships definitely qualify. Like peanut butter and jelly – or Spongebob and Patrick – you’d think some of these duos just wouldn’t work, but somehow they do. Hey, we all know that sometimes strange relationships are the best. Here are a baker’s dozen that caught our eye.
The Spring-Summer 2018 luxury designer collections are already available online for pre-ordering, and they’ll be hitting the floors of upscale department stores and brand flagships in another couple of weeks. So what should you buy this spring to be totally on-trend? We mean really, truly, deeply on-trend. If you consider yourself to be highly engaged in fashion, and you’ve got the resources to go for it, what should be on your shopping list this spring? We’ve prowled around, and read a ton of fashion articles, and discussed this pressing matter among ourselves. And we’ve pulled together a curated list of what we consider to be the 5 most important on-trend pieces for the upcoming season. These aren’t investments – they’re highly likely to come and go within a handful of months. But they’re completely of the moment. And they’re also So. Much. Fun. Here’s how to be totally 2018.
