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.

 Beyoncé is the new face of H&M‘s summer campaign. Rumors popped up last year that Beyonce was shooting a campaign for the popular brand when she was spotted in the Bahamas, and now we have an official first peek! Bey will appear in “Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in H&M” print ads,  television commercials, and larger than life billboards when the “Mrs. Carter World Tour” officially kicks off April 15. Beyonce also helped design the looks. H&M Head of Design, Ann-Sofie Johansson says that the line is full of Bey’s personal style, and will feature “the perfect bodycon dress,” a beach gown with a high slit at the thigh, high-waisted shorts and a sleeveless shirt. A quarter of the sales will be donated to the WaterAid charity.

In a release, Bey expressed her excitement in teaming up with H&M:

“I’ve always liked H&M’s focus on fun and affordable fashion. I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements – fire, water, earth and wind. It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island. It felt more like making a video than a commercial.”

The H&M commercials will also feature Bey’s new song, “Standing On The Sun.”

Get ready to shop the collection in stores and online in May!

Dresses: 1, 2, 3

So there is a new LBD on the market, its the Little Blue Dress. This dress is making a splash in color waves this season. The great thing about the little blue dress is that it is easy to take the dress from day tonight. The color is perfect for the spring and summer but with a great pair of boots it works just as amazing in the fall/winter. Its perfect for any occasion, from a casual day out to a fancy work function, a little blue dress is a fantastic staple to have on hand.
