Diane Von Furstenberg SS12 Scarves

Dvf
When it comes to prints and patterns, there is no one who has the same chemistry as Diane Von Furstenberg. Over her long career in fashion, she's been known for her mastery matching patterns to the right silhouettes, from her famous wrap dress to the small accessories that continue to sell out in our stores season after season. These scarves from her SS12 collection are full of wild prints in playful colors!! They are cashmere, and amazingly soft and light. We just received them in snow leopard (blue and yellow), and a zebra pattern with pink or blue trim! They will be up on the website soon so please check New Arrival frequently...

Bye Bye 2011...

1

Over the course of the year, we shot quite a bit for the product pages and features of the website, and had the great pleasure to work with talented models. We tried, but could not really count how many photos we actually took, but we shot just over a 100 days this year and usually shot more than 1000 photos per day... which means it was easily over 100,000! (Our photographer, Takuro could shoot more, but he knows when he got the one!) Here are some extra shots from photo shoots we did this year... Each one is very memorable, hope you enjoy them like we did! 

MM13" Objects & Publications

The image above of the Champagne Bucket and Snow Dome were taken while skyping with the Hawaii office. Hopefully it gives you an good idea of the scale of them! Many more items will going to arrive very soon, so stay tuned for more news to come...

Special pieces are pouring in daily at Aloha Rag for the oncoming SS12...!

YSL Easy

Ysl

Possibly Yves Saint Lauren's most iconic bag, the "Easy" is a great carryall regardless of trends, seasons, and styles. With the subtle Y logo paneled in to the construction, and it's easy side-tab snap for a transitional shape, this bag is the perfect embodiment of effortless chic! What makes this bag special is it's weight; if you've ever held one in person, you know this is light as a feather! We currently have it in three different colors, and to get a closer look, please click on the images below to see the product pages.

Jil Sander Scarves

Jilsander

These Jil Sander's scarves are some of the first items we've received at Aloha Rag for SS12, and just looking at them, we want to skip the Winter reality and jump to Spring. Their airy light weight and blue tones are so refreshing when combined with light palettes, white and beige. We've received three kinds of patterns and color, python, plaid, and solid navy! All of them are very soft and perfectly complete a polished Spring look, making it tough to choose just one... They will be up on the New Arrivals page soon, so please keep an eye on them!

Trend Alert : A Squeeze of Lemon

Lemon
When we looked at the SS12 runways back in September, Lemon Yellow was one of the major colors that caught our attention. The refreshing zest of yellow is perfect for welcoming the Spring, and it will keep you upbeat unconditionally! At the physical Aloha Rag stores, pops of yellow is seen everywhere! We've received sweaters that you can sport right away, some airy dresses and adorable accessories as well. Please click on the images below to jump to the product pages, and more yellow items from SS12 collection are on their way!

Staff Purchase: NIKE M-65!

M65
The other day, I purchased the newly arrived NIKE M-65 jacket in pale grey. I actually bought my first another darker grey version earlier this season and I really liked the functionality and design of it, so thought owning another one wouldn't hurt... and I know I will wear it a lot!  Some of the accents on the jacket have a little bit of a futuristic essence, and it makes me look like a Storm Trooper from Star Wars, but that's what I like about this jacket. You don't see this crisp wool texture used for M-65 jackets so often. I am sure it will keep me going through the New York Winter when I wear a sweater underneath!! This jacket will be update on the website any day now, please check the New Arrivals often...

Tom Ford Documentary

The living legend in the fashion industry, Tom Ford's documentary was revealed a few days ago. Always at the top of his game, he is now not only designing a couture collection, but also directing films and launching a make-up collection. This film shows an insiders view of his astonishing creativity, and it's a great film to watch if you have a little relaxed time during the holidays! We've been carrying Tom Ford's sunglasses for many seasons now, and they are always one of the best sellers of Aloha Rag's eyewear collections. Check out his entire eyewear collection here!
