“The view from our flat in 75002 Paris”
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.

Remember when we turned our back to the fashion of the 80’s? Well, we may have abandoned the hair and make up entirely, but we’ve found ourselves looking over our shoulder yearning for the neon of the time period. Lo and behold, what goes around comes around and neon has made its way back into our closets. Right now we’re coveting anything bright enough that makes you feel like you need to bust out the SPF. Lines like Christopher Kane, Jenni Kayne, Erickson Beamon, and our very own Curve line are giving us everything we imagined in our neon dreams.
There’s nothing more stunning than a woman in white. While white is commonly disregarded as a non-color, or on reserve for that “special day”, at Curve, we’ve engaged in a serious love affair with it. Head to toe white is not only polished and sophisticated but paired with edgy jewelry like Made Her Think, or the dope body chains by Londoner Fannie Schiovani, it completely transforms the look into a sexual white Matrix. All we’re seeing over here is nothing but white light.
For our laid back girl who’s comfort is most important to them we’ve been channeling a flirty, free spirit look. Designers like Isabel Marant and denim line Citizens of Humanity took this very approach in their collections for resort. Adorned with a tessellation of floral print that has undeniable warmth that leaves you nostalgic for that childhood fantasy of running through, so ladies always remember to stop and smell le fleurs.
Maria Buccellati, Faith Connexion’s brand ambassador, has teamed up with model and socialite Annabelle Dexter-Jones for the company’s Fall 2012 capsule collection, and Nevena has just secured it for Curve NYC. Why Annabelle? As Buccellati puts it, “she has that ‘It’ girl quality that can bring so much brand recognition for us in the United States.”
The collection will be young but slightly boyish, like a Parisian schoolgirl who has not quite found her femininity yet – a look we can’t get enough of! Annabelle credits old family photos, and even school uniforms as her inspiration:
“We wore these green plaid skirts and we would have to get down on our knees so they could check the lengths in school. I was always the one trying to change the uniform in some way. I always got in trouble for it, too,”
We’re very excited to represent this collaboration as Curve NYC! Stay tuned for more images and updates as we receive them…..this collection will no doubt be a huge success with the Soho fashion set!

So incredible! Katie Grand and Ruth Hogben’s latest short film for Louis Vuitton via LOVE Magazine not only mirrors the cotton club (and candy colored) theme of Marc Jacobs’ own Spring 2012 collection, but is one of the most charming fashion vids we’ve seen in a long time and a fitting prelude to the Louis Vuitton exhibit opening next month in Paris. Even perfect in its imperfections – you forgive the models for being offcue in some of the choreography because they’re so cute and having so much fun, this powdery, feathery treat puts a smile on your face and a tap in your toes! Speaking of toes, we’d LOVE to slip ours into the button strap open knee high boots…..spy any must haves of your own for Spring?
