FIRST LOOK: Pour La Victoire’s new Ad Campaign

PLVcampaign2

I love shoes. No matter how many I own, every time I walk into a shoe store, I can’t help but buy a new pair. I am especially fond of unique styles and fine detailing, which is why I’m excited to share with you the Holiday/Resort 2012 ad campaign for Pour la Victoire, a high-end women’s shoe and accessories line adored by celebrities (I’m currently coveting their Tilda Metallic PVC Pump).  The campaign was shot by famed fashion photographer, Terry Richardson, and features model Jessica Hart. Check out the pictures from the sexy photoshoot below, and you can also see all the behind the scenes action here.

The shoes featured in the ads are available now through the end of December at high-end retailers such as Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales.


Designer Spotlight: Barbara Campbell

Designer Barbara Campbell

This weekend I had the opportunity to stop by Bloomingdales in SoHo to check out the Black and Gold Jewelry Collection of Brooklyn-based designer Barbara Campbell.

Whether your style is edgy, chic, or sophisticated, there is something in this collection for you, which consists of handmade jewelry of vintage buttons, mixed-metal, leather, gold-filled and semi-precious stone.

Launched in fall 2007, each piece is carefully hand-crafted by Campbell, who became inspired to start producing her own line after her mother-in-law handed her natural rocks from the beaches of Montauk, and encouraged her to start designing.

Most noteworthy, nothing in the jewelry line is mass-produced, so you can be rest-assured that you will be the owner of a one-of-a-kind piece.

The Black and Gold collection has everything from long, crystal necklaces to wire-wrap earrings.

Black rain bracelets

Leather bracelets are one of the designer's best-selling items.
