SEE BY CHLOÉ Tiered Silk Dress

Little sisters are often more adventurous than their elders, especially when they've got parents in high places pushing them along. The younger spin-off of iconic French label Chloé, See by Chloé’s aesthetic riffs on that of the main line, especially in its emphasis on fluid lines, soft volumes, and a pretty, feminine bent.
Feminine, relaxed, and with just the right amount of frill, this See by Chloé silk dress evokes a youthful vibrancy but remains figure-friendly with its flared cut. This piece is easy to wear from day to night with a switch of accessories – try metallic accessories and a clean updo.
(RRP US$518 / £475)

ELIZABETH & JAMES Cuff Dress with Hi-Lo Hem

Founded by fashion darlings Ashley Olsen and Mary Kate Olsen in 2007, Elizabeth & James has the hybrid appeal of a lovechild between la bohème and haute couture; sort of like 70s YSL meets 60s Givenchy for the modern young women – a winning combination in our book!
This ethereal asymmetrical sheath of sheer fabric is trimmed with safety pin embellishments at the cuffs for a bit of punkish, cool-girl counter-balance. It comes with a slip lining, too. Perfect for dinner parties or drinks downtown, this stunner doesn’t need much else to wow ’em, but high-heeled gladiators and a mini shoulder bag would look amazing with it.
(RRP US$495)

This vid by Japanese animator Takashi Ohashi is called CHANNELER, stemming from the Japanese imageboard 2ch, where users are called ‘Nichannelers’. Ohashi also makes reference to the ASCII art often found in 2ch. Inspired by the style of German animator Andres Hyukade’s Love & Theft (below) CHANNELER is the story of a man’s life illustrated by English/Japanese language characters. As the man grows older, the very dope hip-hop soundtrack develops to incorporate more slang and variations in grammar and language structure.
Happy Sunday!

Punchy floral dresses were the star of SS12 runway, and this sweetheart style from Tory Burch is a perfect example of the youthful aesthetic. You’ll appreciate the universally flattering cut and the not-too-short hem, too.
