YSL Muse Two

Yslmuse

 Yves Saint Laurent's Muse Two has an adorable square face and elegant hardware details. This boxy bag has returned to the spotlight since the come back of "classic" style, which is hinted at by it's lady-like single strap. The minimal design is livened up with the use of color and material blocking, a fun modern detail to make the bag a step up from a just a basic bag. At Aloha Rag, we've received many styles as you can see on the top. Please check the whole YSL bag collection here

AR News: 10.31.11

 

Mod

 

Tatsugo flew to Japan last week for a few meetings with AR manufactures and oversee the collection samples. Besides an update on the design process of the FW12 collection, we are very happy to be informed that the AR FW11 collection is doing very well in it's other retail stores! The shirt dress and tunic series are one of the top sellers in women's, and for men's,the  Mod Coat is pretty popular from the collection.

 

Flat 12 Flat 13

This mod-style coat comes in two colors, versatile Black and Khaki. The contrasting sleeves are an eye-catching detail, but in a subtle and classic way. The body is constructed of a material called "horsecloth", which was originally was used underneath a horse's saddle. The material is thin and light but has a crisp-feeling and is well known for it's durability because the threads are tightly woven. The coat is lined with detachable lining made of Thinslate, a popular fabric that is known keeping heat in and not being to heavy or bunchy. A perfect material for Winter coats.

In the Press: FW11 AR Dress Shirt was featured in Details Magazine November issue! The well-made shirt is the essential item of AR, and we like the crispness!

 

More happy news! Browns, one of the new retailers (starting in SS12) of the AR women's collection, will host their Press Presentation on November 8th. Take a look at their blog and follow their twitter to see an insiders view of the presentation!

The Row Vesper Vest

Therow1

 

Fur has always been a symbol of ultimate luxury for women. This Vesper Vest by The Row is definitely one of the dream items this season. It is covered by soft and thick fox fur on the front, and the back is tailored with smooth camel colored wool, to give the clean-cut silhouette from the profile view. When you actually see it in person, the texture of the vest is breathtakingly gorgeous. The fur's natural unequal tones and rich density make you want to comb it forever... The wool back panel downplays the volume and allows layering over/under a coat or jacket without making you stiff. Check out the item page here

Get the Look: Thakoon Striped Sweater

A crew neck sweater is definetely the key piece for an ideal Fall and Winter wardrobe. Thakoon's wool / cashmere pullover sweater has a fitted silhouette, and comes in a creamy beige/grey combo, giving a soft and girlie touch to an outfit. Besides the triangle panel on the right side, our favorite detail is the off centered slit on the hem. It is a subtle approach, but such a unique accent! Here are three styles we composed using the sweater; casual, rock, and classic. The sweater works really well in numerous occasions!

Spotlight: Robert Geller

Gr

Robert Geller always brings us great staple pieces with unique twists and an exceptional fit. In his FW11 collection, the designer's Rock-n-Roll spirit came alive in the garments, without being too literal. Instead of the typical black leathers and ripped jeans, the collection sported a muted color palette and used  material texture to be expressive. Even though the silhouettes are slim and sleek, a careless and easy mood resonates as a fundamental aesthetic in his designs... We received some Winter outerwear and some cold season staples, such as button down shirts, sweatshirts, and denim. His daily wears always have a consistent fine quality that makes them a great buy!  Check out his FW collection at Aloha Rag here

Fall is officially here in New York, and we're all pulling our heavier layers out of the closet. As winter sets in, sometimes colorful clothing takes a backseat, but a dash of gold to your FW wardrobe never hurt anyone.  The 3.1 Phlilip Lim Crew Neck Sweater panelled together three different materials into a raglan-style cut. The front and back are knitted fine wool, the sleeves are a chunkier knit mohair, and the side panels are smooth cotton. The three styles, pictured above, show you 3 different ways the pair it, and as you can see, the unusual color is quite easy to team up with casual and classic styles!
