Levi’s reached back in their archives to reproduce garments from the past. For Spring 2013, Levi’s Vintage Clothing (LVC) created a line inspired by the golden era of the American Hot rod and the sharply dresses car owners and spectators who rocked Levi’s faithfully. One of the stand out pieces of the line include a suede version of the of classic style military style bomber. The bomber comes in navy blue and has awesome detailing.

The Levi’s Vintage Clothing Spring 2013 Hot Rod collection will hit select retailers in the weeks ahead but you can check out the entire lineup online now through LVC’s newly redesigned site.

In addition to releasing the collection of Hot Rod-inspired Levi’s jeans and Sportswear, the Brand teamed up with Los Angeles-based filmmaker and curator Aaron Rose to make a short film about the origins of Hot Rod culture in Southern California back in the early 1950′s. Rose pulled from hundreds of hours of painstakingly researched archival footage ranging from old “juvenile delinquent” movies and Life Magazine drag-race films to home movies unearthed from personal collections. He dug deep in research and the result shows the effort. Rose delivers a striking and fast-paced film that captures the style and attitude of the uniquely American post-war subculture which continues to influence the worlds of fashion, music and mechanics to this day. You can check the video out below.

LookBook: Sophia Vergara For Kmart

new FI

 

I am proud to introduce a curve friendly luscious line created by Sophia Vergara available at Kmart.   Looking through the line I was pleased with the diverse selections and fair prices.  Kmart is already known for affordable house-hold merchandise, but its nice to see a change of pace in the clothing department. Ranging from her sassy form-fitting dresses to the strappy heels, I highly suggest stopping in and taking a sneak peek at some of her dynamic creations. With this clothing line, Sophia wanted to capitalize on the more voluptuous women of today.  Featuring her family in the launch of her new line, Mrs. Vergara makes no mistake in letting the world know that beauty…true bueaty comes in all different sizes!!

This was designer Oliver Rousteing’s first collection for the Parisian-based fashion house and he expertly juxtaposed the label’s signature edgy pieces with Western elements — like chambray, fringe and oversized belt buckles — to create ensembles with a unique cowboy-meet-rocker vibe
