Roxanne Nikki Blasts Vancouver with an Exclusive Pop Up Boutique

With gale force strength, iconic Canadian brand Roxanne Nikki is back with a blast to titillate the city with an exclusive Vancouver pop up boutique featuring the Fall 2012 womenswear and menswear collections.

The Roxanne Nikki woman struts in statement coats and jackets that marry effortlessly with avant-garde takes on the little black dress, slim pants, one-piece show-stoppers, and pencil, circle, and wrap skirts. All are multi-functional and many are reversible.

For men, high fashion meets heroism to emanate a futuristic feel. His style embodies a vintage heart in a future world. Mix-and-match signatures include single-breasted jackets and coats with zippers and distinctive draped collars in unexpected fabrications. Quilted leathers and zip gussets add clever attention to detail. Pants range from super slim to bias cuts and future retro militant silhouettes dominate tunics and shirts for this collection’s chic yet masculine looks.

Innovative materials, textures, and luxury are tantamount to the label’s blend of rich faux furs and leathers balanced by sumptuously urbane wool, all made-to-order from exclusive textile mills in Europe.

"The inspiration for this collection resonates with my constant desire for originality, luxury, and super chic modernity. I design for modern men and women who are not afraid to make a statement and embrace their identity as an individual. So every piece I create must have personality, be coveted, and be multi-faceted," says Nikki. 

Nikki, a Winnipeg native, sold her first collection in 1994 before relocating her fashion business from Montreal to Vancouver. Her instincts and passion served her well, garnering the designer national awards and international recognition as one of Canada's top talents. These days, the brand has a stand-out quality that has the stars taking note. The Roxanne Nikki collection has been worn by celebrities such as Carmen Electra, Bai Ling, Christina Milian, Kate Linder, Stacy Francis, Kristanna Lokan, Divine Brown, DJ Photek, and Jesse McCartney. The star following is a statement of her success and now she wants to share her talent with Vancouver. 

The Roxanne Nikkki pop up boutique shop featuring the designer’s modern and edgy collections for women and men is on the second floor of the International Village (88 West Pender). The chic shopping destination is open from 12-7 p.m. on December 6-7, and 12-5 p.m. on December 8-9.

Summer Just Got Twice as Nice Thanks to a Second Capsule Collection From Vanishing Elephant

You know how you always want what you can’t have, and then when you have it you don’t really want it anymore? Not so with previously menswear-only Vanishing Elephant and the womenswear collection they finally released in March this year after being inundated with requests from female fans after the brand was launched in 2008.

Vanishing Elephant’s debut Spring 2012 womenswear collection proved so popular that it sold out, and to compensate they’ve unexpectedly dropped a second capsule range which is now available in stores. There are pastoral liberty print shirts aplenty complemented by high-waist minis in navy corduroy and loose-fit trousers screaming to be unsystematically cuffed at the hem.

Again, relaxed yet careful tailoring and silky, breathable fabrics are hallmarks of the designs, with intricate details like a crisp Peter Pan collar doing their duties for the requisite “contemporary twists.” Also, shoes: If your summer brogues aren’t perforated and neon-accented or patent and covered in dreamy florals, don’t even bother.

The Vanishing Elephant High Summer women’s edit is now available in stores and online.

J.W. Anderson Replaces Christopher Kane as the New Versus Designer

J.W. AndersonIt’s been quite the year for 27-year-old J.W. Anderson which has seen him showcase his collection at London Fashion Week thanks to being selected as a NEWGEN recipient, create a fab Topshop collection, and acquire a loyal celebrity following including Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe, and Pixie Geldof. Now, fresh from winning the British Fashion Awards’ Emerging Talent award earlier this week, Donatella Versace has officially released a statement saying that he’s set to design the next Versus capsule collection. So, as we bid a fond farewell to Christopher Kane after 3 years designing Versus, we know that he’s set to be replaced by a designer that is equally as edgy. 

Anderson’s Plans for Versus

Anderson has stated that the Versus line exemplifies purity, and explores the relationships between a boy and a girl, a girl and a girl, and a boy and a boy. How will this translate to his designs? A white palette, clean cuts, and an androgynous aesthetic, perhaps? Your guesses are as good as ours, but there’s no doubt that we’re in store for quite the treat.

The collection will feature both women’s and men’s ready-to-wear pieces, as well as accessories, but you’ll have to curb your enthusiasm as the line will not available until next spring.

Diane Von Furstenberg’s Red Carpet Date Was a Literal Dog

Diane von Furstenberg totally lucked out earlier this week when she got to attend the Neiman Marcus x Target Holiday Collection preview party on the errr…arm (leg?) of Bullseye the Target mascot. A few years ago, I read about a woman that paid for her Macbook Pro by selling out ad space on its surface, so her computer became a kind of billboard whenever she worked from a coffeeshop (she was a freelancer, so this was a near-daily occurance). I would do that, but with my face.

Dear Target, Let's talk. I will go out with a giant bullseye drawn around my eye — like all the time, except maybe not on dates? — and you just have to cover my food, drinks, and cab fare. Maybe also my clothing? Would not want to tar the Target (haa) brand image by looking like a slob.

Ack: Girls Season 2 Looks So Good [Watch The Trailer]

If you were hoping Season 2 of Girls would be just terrible so you could have an extra half-hour a week to pet your cat and develop meaningful relationships with the people in your life, I'm sorry but it appears that Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham) & Co. are coming back in January with guns blazing. You can have a life some other time. 

There's still over a month before the Season 2 premiere and the first trailer is already here, because HBO's going to be damned if you pay attention to something else even for a second. If you aren't already wary of the impending Girls hype hurricane, please get it together. This show would be so much better if it were just a show, and not a nauseatingly relatable twentysomething Brooklyn lifestyle almost-empire. 

So here's what we can look forward to next season:

  • Yes, everyone still lives in New York.
  • "What if he's murder-y in like, a murder way?"
  • Jorma Taccone is back to seduce Marnie (played by Allison Williams). Finally. It will probably be the sexiest thing on television.
  • As my friend Andrew put it: "I liked the part when Lena Dunham was in a mesh top or something."
