This season during NYFW my friends at Banana Republic switched things up in the world of fashion and hosted two events with two very unique collections.
Short-lead media (bloggers, web etc.) were invited to join them to preview a new pop-up shop created in partnership with notable trend setter Olivia Palermo.
The curated pop-up shop located in NYC’s SOHO store was what I imagined Olivia’s closet to look like.
Filled with personalized picks of head-to-toe style; Cocktail rings and all!
Then, for long-lead media (magazines, print publications etc.) Banana Republic hosted a very secretive media presentation where they debuted their F/W 2017 collection.
Including their first ever Capsule Collection collaboration with… Olivia Palermo!
Unfortunately for me, not working on a long-lead story for the collection, my name was not on that invite list…. But as fate would have it, my friends at Stila Cosmetics invited me backstage to get a look at the faces they created for the presentation, and for the shooting of the 2017 F/W Lookbook which will be out later this year!
Now because the collection is completely embargoed, the images of the clothing are tightly locked in my mind and iCloud, but what I can share is the products behind ‘the look’ created to compliment the yet unseen collection.
A perfected look showcasing natural beauty.
On the eyes HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara and Eyes Are The Window Eye Shadow Pallette in Spirit to bring attention to the models peepers.
For the cheeks, Stila’s Convertible Color Dual Lip & Cheek Palette in Sunset Serenade to enhance their rosy hues.
Lastly Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color and a toned down lip using Stila’s Color Balm Lipstick.
First in Grayson which neutralizes the red and then topped with Jessie for a ‘tailored’ finish.
The entire look…Flawlessly beautiful!
This season with Banana Republic & Stila Cosmetics was filled with exciting surprises.
I was lucky to be a part of them!
