Do you Covet? Covet is a new virtual styling app where Habitual was recently top-rated! Coveters used our Addison Hi Rise Moto and Grace Hi Rise Skinny pants in their looks in events ranging from “Figure Drawing Class” to “Natural Elements” to play the game. Finally, a guilt-free way to commit a sin.
For an all-out bad girl look, we love how Neiman Marcus’ Styling Director paired the Habitual Elle Motos in Woodland Coated with workwear staples and biker-chic leather in this recent editorial. Shop the look here.
Not only do Wigwam socks go well with boots and a pair of Habituals (hello ’90s looks!), but they’re made stateside in Wisconsin.
From the cheeky mind of Father John Misty frontman Josh Tillman, these original artworks are charming send ups of contemporary magazine covers. As much as mock headlines like “Other Numbers + Words” poke fun at print publishing conventions, we sense at least a little affection for the joy that glossies bring us within the parody. After all, imitation is the sincerest form, sardonic or not!
For off-duty dressing without the resignation of sweats, we turn to separates in sensual materials and edgy prints, like Mary Katrantzou’s modal-and-cashmere Landscape scarf, paired with our comfy-but-glam Habitual Eve in Deep, a Nordstrom exclusive. Add a brimmed hat by WoodWood to ward chills with on-trend style, and you’re totally not in business. Also pictured: Protagonist tee in 3-ply silk and Rag & Bone Bannon booties.
The high-low mix continues to dominate the fashion compass this season and Neiman Marcus nails a biker-feminine take on the concept with their recent editorial pairing Habitual denim with au courant Los Angeles destinations. J’adore! Check their new site Cusp and Neiman Marcus to purchase the styles shown and more.
Following earlier snoozy shows in Europe, all-out spectacles—like Rick Owens’ fierce step dancers and the postmodern Eden at Dior—reaffirmed Paris as the godmother of giddy drama and fun in fashion this season. Not that we didn’t love London edginess, the sense of tradition in Milan or of course NYC’s chic pragmatism, but visions such as Karl Lagerfeld’s tongue-in-cheek art gallery pushed cultural boundaries with fully articulated fantasies in just the way fashion should.
At Lanvin, Alber Elbaz went after our own hearts with an homage to lamé. “Stonewashed, vaporized, slashed, and broken,” according to Style.com, this crafted treatment of the material itself shares our approach to creating the ultimate washes and makes for clothes that are similarly a joy to wear.
Rick Owens also showed a collection that proved dynamic in real life, opting to show how by replacing models with teams of dancers whose defiant sneers, stomping feet and combative movements made for the most talked-about event of the week.

Raf Simons continued on his path of expertly delivering Dior into the present. The collection, from its space-age cutouts to metallic ball gowns, fused the alien with the classic just as the dripping Garden of Eden setting melded lush natural vines and artificial neon flora.

For Chanel, Lagerfeld’s neo-sincere ode to art came in the form of the white-walled space and oversize artworks that lent the affect of an amusement park, while the clothes themselves carried through a similar playful interpretation of an art student’s wardrobe.

In the most bittersweet show of the season, Marc Jacobs took his final bow at Louis Vuitton after 16 years, but not without inky feather headresses atop pants and slinky dresses that conjured flapper showgirls dipped in 90s grunge. Bravo.

From the stripped-down blues of the Black Keys and Gary Clark Jr. to a more abstract desire to give the Southern Gothic era a modern twist, inspiration for our Fall 2013 collection takes form in the sensuous colors of the past in sharp, clean cuts.

We’ve spent the last few days showing our upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 line at the Coterie fashion exhibition in the gorgeous I.M. Pei-designed Javits building. The “space frame” windows cast a beautiful NYC light on some favorites of the collection, a trio in our coated white denim. Using a secret wash formula to produce, these pieces lend a clean and sharp look to any wardrobe that you simply can’t get anywhere else!
