Nevena’s Tendencies

Modelinia, the website for all things supermodel, listed CURVE as one of the go to shopping destination for the supers in LA, New York and Miami!   Most recently Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Bar Refaeli, Karolina Kurkova, Erin Heatherton, and more catwalkers have come in to get ahead of the CURVE, but  anyone can come to CURVE and get their supermodel shop on!  Big thanks to Modelinia!!

 

Our founder, Nevena Borissova, styled a Spring 2013 editorial featuring the hottest graphics of the season against the art-covered walls of Miami’s Wynwood Arts District with photographer Leonardo Corredor. Little did she know then that Wynwood Rising would land in Vogue Brasil along with a feature on her and how she’s built CURVE!  Our friends at Image Amplified were kind enough to feature the shoot on their website, and we couldn’t be prouder of Nevena!  Enjoy some bonus behind-the-scenes pix of the incredible art after the jump!  Big thanks goes to Leonardo, Brandon Fogel from CURVE Soleil, Virginia Le Fay, Karina @ Front Management,  El Chan Guri, Jona Cerwinske, Sancrisabel, Brisky Gallery, Dorst Gallery, and a special muito obrigado to Vogue Brasil!

Isabel Marant Rio Sandal, $890.  Call for availability 310-360-8008.

A touch of boho, a dash of rock n’ roll, a pinch of sophistication, and cup of sexy…Isabel Marant gives us a must have sandal heel for spring.  Available in both black and nude, there’s no wardrobe these perfect 10′s won’t fit in.

Here’s the latest model tendency Nevena’s spotted on models off the runway – colored denim:

I don’t know who’s more upset, the Marlboro cowboys all over the world, or the ghost of James Dean…but gone are the days of the good ole’ blue jean. It’s all about colored denim as of late, anything from Mother Denim’s hot pink hue or their butter cup yellow. We’re wearing them with chunky neutral sweaters or a putty peplum blazer for a more refined look. No matter what your style is, incorporating colored denim into your wardrobe is a must…my apologies, John Wayne!

Angeleno beauty Raquel Allegra has taken the world by storm with her unique creations! She started by taking prison shirts and deconstructing them, hand shredding and dyeing each one, to symbolize the beauty within anything no matter what it starts out as. You’ve no doubt seen Erin Wasson rock the white half shredded cocoon dress, one of the best selling shapes of the collection, and all of the custom pieces she did for Lady Gaga’s “Judas” video. Raquel’s sexy yet wearable, tough & tender aesthetic has gotten her a cult-like following. Everybody needs one!!! I own 20 :)

Nevena’s got a brand new bag – she’s now a trend forecaster for MODELINIA:  the first global media brand dedicated to the best of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle through the eyes and experiences of the world’s most popular supermodels!  After they fell in love with Nevena’s “On The Road” editorial, Modelinia asked Nevena to lend her sartorial sense of style to the supermodel-centric blog  and report on what she sees the runway set wearing the world over each week.  First up – Candy Kane!   Click the image above to shop some of the season’s best brights from Curve, and stay tuned to see what model tendencies Nevena spies with her little eye*

A huge trend for Spring (and one of my personal favorites) is neon brights! You’ve seen it all over the runways and now every model is interpreting it in her own way. Some opt for the statement pieces in rainbow inspired bright colors from Alexander Wang, or the killer Erickson Beamon neon tribal insanity. Others use neon accents in bags like the Celine Nano, the Christian Louboutin Pigalle pump, or a J-Crew fluorescent pink deep V Tee. The key to the look is pairing them with neutrals and mixing them in a “tri-color block” of black and white. How would I wear it? I choose the leader of the pack: Christopher Kane, whose ‘Moto’ jacket in bright acid yellow I can’t stop wearing! No matter how much (or little) you want to turn up the volume on your look with brights, there’s a way for everyone to wear this trend and look current.
