Finding the Perfect Scent

With so many delicious scents available for both men and women, finding one to call your own can prove quite challenging. You want something that stands out, but you don’t want it to overpower, leaving people overwhelmed and angry. But most importantly, you want something that fits your personality, style, and individuality; when you leave a room you want to be remembered, sight, sound, and smell.

Mindy Yang, MiN New York's VP, curator, and all-over perfume expert notes on the importance of scent, "It’s been said that perfume is like a cocktail without the hangover, like chocolate without the calories, like an affair without tears, a vacation from which you never have to come back. It’s a potion that transcends moments and the key to our memories." And we believe this to be very true; scent provides sinless indulgence, the notes of which linger in our memory, long after it has left the room.

Let’s take a look at a few of the creatively-woven fashion trends, in accordance with the culture they were inspired by.

Kimono: China

Found in Forever 21 and H&Ms everywhere, the kimono has officially left China and been placed in some of our favorite stores. With an urban spin on the traditional piece, the kimono can be worn in an array of ways. Style icon Kylie Jenner was recently seen wearing one over lacy jumpsuit. Most people wear them to spice up a casual look, such as shorts and t-shirt. Pair this intricate piece with a simple outfit and watch as heads turn. Not to mention, it looks insanely comfortable. Who wouldn't want to wear a robe as they run errands? The time has come where comfortability trumps all, and we can be as fashionable as the most stylish people, while wearing a robe.

Heremes is Saying Goodbye to Designer Christophe Lemarie

In 2010 Hermes lost designer Jean Paul Gaultier and picked up Frenchman designer Christophe Lemaire. Now, four years later, Lemaire has decided to leave his role as artistic director of women’s wear for Hermes and create his own line of clothes. The designer is said to leave after the label’s spring/summer 2015 collection at Paris Fashion Week is over in October. Lemaire has helped to refine the labels and help create ready-to-wear collections. Christophe explained that "Working for Hermes has been a great pleasure: a profoundly enriching experience on both a human and professional level. I am proud of what we have built together". Hermes is yet to proclaim a replacement for Lemaire, but we wish him the best of luck and know his talent will take him far. We look forward to seeing what the designer has to offer!
