The designer’s SPOTLIGHT: HALSTON.

The Designer’s Spotlight: HALSTON.

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post, The Designer’s Spotlight: HALSTON. IM taking you back with this one , I’m giving you STUDIO 54 vibes with this one. I decided for this latest blog post , I wanted to shed a little light on a designer that made a major splash in the industry from the 70’s STUDIO 54 Disco era, but continued to make major noise throughout the 80’s , and the early 90’s when he passed away. Halston was known as one of the GREAT AMERICAN DESIGNERS of the time , he created a look that was synonymous with his name, and even though he passed away , his clothing today still carries on the look that made the brand as iconic then and still is today , especially among those that are luxury fashion enthusiasts today. My latest fashionable production that you are about to have a look at below , will show you the latest from HALSTON , as well as I’m showing you how to style pieces from the current collection. So without further ado, here it is The Designer’s Spotlight: HALSTON…

All looks in this video have been styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES…

As you can see from the video , the HALSTON brand is still very much around and respected among those that are in the know when it comes to fashion and brands from the past. If you look closely you will notice that the look of the brand really hasn’t changed much from the 70’s era when it first caught fire during that disco STUDIO 54 era. The only thing that may have changed a little is the silhouette of the clothing to give it a more modern cut , but aside from that, the brand looks almost exactly like what made it successful in the first place.

So far as luxury brands go , the price point is not to bad, ranging from the low 100’s to upwards of the low 700’s, not to bad by comparison of most high end luxury brands , it’s fairly affordable to own a piece of this iconic brand. The looks that you see in the video can be shopped at www.halston.com and www.shopstyle.com .

Well there it is , just like that we have just reached the end of yet another blog post, I hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed presenting it to you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been The Designer’s Spotlight: HALSTON. That’s it for now , so until the next time…IM GONE…!!!.

Be sure to meet me back here for my next upcoming blog post.

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you , I AM JMADDD STYLES , and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post. The Fall Fashion Spectacular , this is Pt 2 of my previous blog post , The JMADDD STYLES SEPTEMBER ISSUE. Usually I would do my annual SEPT. ISSUE in one long blog or segment, but this year I decided to take my SEPT. ISSUE to another creative level by adding a video tutorial to it , to help bring the fashion more to life and give you the reader or viewer a more enhanced reading and viewing experience. For Pt 1 of this blog series I covered looks from four designers, or brands Tom Ford , Burberry, Brandon Maxwell and Michael Kors. For the second half or Pt 2 of this blog series I am focusing in on four more designers or brands , Ralph Lauren , Coach , Pyer Moss , & Telfar. I’m styling looks from their F/W 2020 collections to help or inspire you for your own personal style and to give you new ideas for your own personal wardrobe , even if you don’t use these brands to do so , I’m giving you a visual style aid that can give you ideas for any brand that you choose to use. Also important to keep in mind , trends or following trends is not always the way to go , cause every trend does not always work for everybody , so I’m here to help you discover what works for you. But I can show you better than I can tell you , so here it is my latest blog/vlog , The Fall Fashion Spectacular.

Fashionably hot in 2020 : Charaf Tajer : CASABLANCA.

Fashionably hot in 2020 : Charaf Tajer : CASABLANCA.

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you . I AM JMADDD STYLES and this is Fashionably hot in 2020 : Charaf Tajer : CASABLANCA . Charaf Tajer started his Paris based label CASABLANCA a little over two years ago in 2018 , and I got to admit I’m a little late to the party in knowing about the street luxury label. I came across it as I was reviewing fashion week video footage of Paris Fashion week. His show really stood out to me because I haven’t seen looks like these since Versace or Roberto Cavalli in the late 80’s and throughout the 90’s . His usage of color mixed with bold patterns flashes you right back to that time period. The look is bold and most of all flashy , two esthetics in clothing that I happen to be a fan of when it’s done correctly, and that is not easy to do , because there is always the risk of looking borderline tacky and cheap. But much like his predecessors , Charaf Tajer has found a way to perfect accomplishing this style or look in his clothing that is neither tacky or cheap, it’s just plain good fashion. For this blog post we are going to take a look at his SS20 Spring/Summer collection first from a runway perspective then I’m going to style standout pieces from the collection and give it that JMADDD STYLES touch , as I often do ,just so you can see how to put this collection together for your everyday or not so everyday use. So let’s get started…

As you can see the materials are of the best quality and the bold colors and patterns are mixed together perfectly. Now admittedly enough this is not a clothing line made for everyone, you have to know how to wear looks like this and you can’t be afraid to stand out . When it comes to clothing like this , it’s as I always say , you can be in the room or you can be the room. Trust me when I say this , being the room and not just being in it , is a lot more fun. Now with that said , let’s take an even closer look at this new bold collection.

These first few looks give you more of a athleisure style , which demonstrates the versatility of the line , but if you take an even closer look at the first three styles, you will notice the New Balance sneakers that finish the looks off. Those are NB 327’s . The new sneaker collaboration with CASABLANCA & New Balance , basically CASABLANCA X New Balance.

When you look at the last six looks , you can see the influence of Versace and Roberto Cavalli , especially when you look at the boldly printed silk shirts and the jeans as well with the flashy graphics and artistic scenery in each pair of the jeans. The real question as always are you hear for it ? I’m sure you know my answer , but incase you don’t, I’m personally hear for it , but as for you out there. I LET YOU TELL IT. You can shop these looks at www.casablancaparis.com and www.farfetch.com .

Well there it is , we have just come to the end of yet another blog post. I hope as always that you have enjoyed reading it , just as much as I enjoyed presenting it.

The Fashion follow up : Carolina Herrera

The Fashion follow up : Carolina Herrera.

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you. For those that are new to this blog and not completely familiar with me , I AM JMADDD STYLES . Welcome to my latest blog post : The Fashion follow up : Carolina Herrera. Today I am going to revisit the style that is Carolina Herrera and take you on a fashionable journey through the SS2020 collection of one the best if not the best womenswear designers and brands for women. A designer whose collections just oozes regality as much as the woman who is the figure head and former designer behind the brand and behind the label that is Carolina Herrera .

Each season that the Carolina Herrera brand presents a collection, it is always something to look forward to , the silhouettes , the expert tailoring , the bold colors , each piece of clothing you see is undeniably Carolina Herrera. Each season I personally look forward to seeing just what the brand is going to do , because I know it’s going to be a perfect collection.

The clothing is always designed with women in mind , meaning each season the collections are well designed with the classy fashion forward woman in mind. Each time the brand puts out a new collection, it never strays away from the true signature look of the brand , managing to accomplish a look that is both sexy , classy , and as I said earlier regal at the same time. This brand knows the difference between making women look well dressed and still on trend without towing the fine line of being to trendy and especially is never no where near trashy.

The Carolina Herrera woman will be seen the moment that she steps in the room and that’s without being to overly revealing, or ill fitted . Not only will you see her enter the room , but you will want to know who she is , what she does , and why she’s there cause the clothing just plain speaks volumes when it comes to style.

Now that I have given you a quick glimpse at the SS2020 Carolina Herrera collection , I am once again going to put on my Fashion Stylist hat and style a few new looks from the collection using pieces from the SS2020 collection. So if you are ready , it’s time to get started.
