Altuzarra for Target Collaboration

The entire fashion world has been eagerly awaiting Target’s next designer collaboration, all with the success of past such collaborations such as that with Peter Pilotto to Prabal Gurung. This time, they are teaming up with Joseph Altuzarra, who launched his line, Altuzarra, in New York in 2008. The line is heavily influenced by his multicultural upbringing and his international education in fashion and the collection for Target features pieces that are very chic, feminine and seductive and Joseph utilized some python prints for the Fall. This doesn’t surprise us here at Joonbug.com; Altuzarra is a widely recognized name and he won the CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund awards back in 2011. The collection varies from skirts, silk blouses, snake skin print dresses, sweaters and even trench coats and also offers various accessories like ankle strap stilettos and knee-high boots. There’s definitely a little bit of everything in this collection. The pieces are casual enough to wear to work, and yet sexy enough to wear out on a date or a night out on the town. If you’re thinking about what the price range is looking like, prices range from $18 to $90.

How to #OOTD Like a Pro

Attention all Instagram addicts: are you ready to get your #OOTD likes up? Here at Joonbug.com we have the answers to perfecting the ever so trendy flat lay. With these four simple steps you will be on the popular page in no time.


Step No.1: Pick a solid background.

White is always a safe bet because it amplifies the color contrasts of your items. But any clear solid background will work. Here’s a tip for getting a white background when you don’t have one- a solid white bed sheet or the inside of wrapping paper. We've also seen wood and grass backgrounds on the popular page. But if you don’t have any of these options readily available, any solid surface will work. Be creative and try something new!

#7Obsessions With Miranda Kerr

Since their launch in 2000, 7 For All Mankind (74AMK) has been a premier denim brand that turns heads with their campaigns. And so it was no surprise to learn that their F/W 2014 campaign will feature the stunning Miranda Kerr, who will undoubtedly add sizzle and spice to the pages as she poses in a white long sleeve tee with a black ribbon tied around the collar, accompanied by a slim pair of slightly distressed 74AMK denim. The ads take a sexy turn when she loses the top and gains the also shirtless model, Jon Kortajarena.

These sensual ads are for the new campaign #7Obsessions. The campaign stems from the idea of an obsessive relationship between a man and a woman and a woman’s obsession with her jeans. We can tell you one thing we are all obsessed with and that’s Miranda Kerr in those jeans. The black and white ads are simple, sensual and absolutely stunning.

BEHIND THE FABRIC
Barneys Settles Racial Profiling Allegations

According to State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, investigators heard from customers and former employees that a pattern of racial profiling began last year when Barneys tried to crack down on a vivid spear in shoplifting and credit card fraud. It was said that the stores security team had a habit of watching over black and Hispanic shoppers, an inconsistent number of times. The stores own data proved that from October 2012 through October 2013 black and Hispanic shoppers were apprehended for rates greater than their percentage of the store customer base. Barneys is agreeing to pay $525,000 in order to settle allegations that they intentionally targeted minorities entering the Madison Ave. flagship store. With paying fines and legal expenses in relation to the profiling accusations, the upscale retailer will hire an anti-profiling consultant for two years, update its detention policy and improve training of security and sales personnel in order to make sure this does not ever happen again.
