  • Brunello Cucinelli - Designer Biography

    Brunello Cucinelli was born to a family of modest means on September 3, 1953, in Castel Rigone (Perugia). In 1972, he earned a diploma as a land surveyor in Perugia. He studied at the School of Engineering of Perugia University from 1972 to 1974.

    At 25 years old, he realized that dyed cashmere could be a great innovation (until then, cashmere only came in neutral, basic shades). He started his business, without financial means, in a small 40 sq. m. workshop. After his second year of business, he hired his first employee. Brunello Cucinelli's first export markets were Germany and the United States, which were considered financially solid countries.  Continue reading

  • Haute Couture Vs. Ready-to-Wear

    Every good fashionista knows that the word "Couture" is not one to just be thrown around. The term, commonly confused with "Prét-a-porter", actually comes from the French phrase "Haute-Couture" which translates to mean "high sewing" or "high dressmaking".

    In France, the term "Haute Couture" is protected by law and is defined by a government agency called the Chambre de commerce et d'industrie de Paris which is based in Paris, France. Their rules state that only "those companies mentioned on the list drawn up each year by a commission domiciled at the Ministry for Industry are entitled to avail themselves" of the label haute couture. The criteria for haute couture were established in 1945 and updated in 1992. To earn the right to call itself a couture house and to use the term haute couture in its advertising and any other way, members of the Chambre syndicale de la haute couture must follow these rules:  Continue reading

  • Trendy Vs. Stylish

    When it comes to fashion it is easy to confuse the idea of being "stylish" with the idea of being "trendy". While at first glance the two words might appear to mean the same thing there are actually some very distinct differences between them; and most people usually find that they gravitate towards one type of style or the other. Regardless of which one you prefer, Labellush.com recommends that having a firm understanding of both can help you to better understand and round out your wardrobe, while still staying true to yourself.

    "Trendy"

    Almost like clockwork, people who are "trendy" fall in love with the newest trends season after season. They seek inspiration for their personal style from the most recent runways, hottest celebs, and major glossy magazines. They make a deliberate attempt, and often spend a significant amount of money each season incorporating the newest colors, and styles into their wardrobe and usually by the end of the season they are more than ready to purge their closets of their "out-dated" duds and start all over again.

    On the up side; because trendy people make an effort to stay current their style conveys an air of awareness to the world around them. It says they are active, involved, and interested. However, on the down side, because trends are constantly changing people with a trendy style may lack a sense of defined identity.

    If you feel you are more of a "trendy" person and you want to balance out your style Labellush.com recommends stocking up on some high-quality basics. Look for timeless, well tailored pieces, in flattering neutral colors that will easily mix and match with your seasonal fashion finds, and last for years.

    How to Tie Square Scarves:

    How to tie a square Scarf Bandana
    Fold your scarf in half on a diagonal so that it forms a triangle. With the long edge facing up wrap the scarf around your neck and tie the two farthest corners together, so that the scarf hangs loosely around your neck. Rotate the knot to the back or side (depending on your preference) and adjust the drape to finish off the look.
    Choker
    Lay your scarf out flat on a diagonal. Fold the top and bottom points into the center so that they meet. From the edges that have formed roll the top and bottom up towards the center until they meet, and then overlap. Your scarf should now form a long thin strip. Wrap the scarf around your neck and tie with a double knot to secure. Rotate the knot to the side, back, or front (depending on your preference).
    How to Tie a Bow Tie Scarf Bow Tie
    This style works best with a large square scarf. Lay your scarf out flat on a diagonal. Fold the top and bottom points into the center so that they meet. From the edges that have formed roll the top and bottom up towards the center until they meet, and then overlap. Your scarf should now form a long thin strip.
