Ibiza Beach

ACID brights supply the party with an eye-catching pick-up this spring/summer 2011 and provide the perfect base for your Ibiza wardrobe. Inspired by the glow sticks and Happy Faces of the Nineties rave scene, this season's neon colour palette is paired with ladylike silhouettes to give the look a grown-up, modern twist.  
Pleated pieces at Christopher Kane, Miu Miu and Cacharel combined demure shapes with bold colours, while the longer lengths at Michael Kors, MaxMara and Lanvin lent these riotous hues an unexpected elegance.  
For those who've already had the chance to work on their tan, the cutaways at Gucci and shorter lengths at Versus and BCBG Max Azria are the most daring way to work this season's fluorescent shades. But whichever length you settle on, the vibrant colours give instant impact and require only minimal make-up and accessories.  
Bright open-toed platforms at Halston and Christopher Kane are in keeping with the ladylike shapes, while oversized clutches from Michael van der Ham and Cacharel are a great way to add an extra block of colour and further embolden the look. With no further embellishment needed, this season's bright palette will be your summer saviour - making the move from beach to bar an effortless one.
Of course, the legacy of Matthew Williamson and Jade Jagger can still be felt with lots of cool girls working a luxe take on hippy chic - with boho jewellery, tie-dye and feathered accents playing a big part in the island's most fashionable wardrobes.

Sparkle And Shine

RAZZLE-DAZZLE, glitter, gloss or sheen - however you want to describe the trend, it's time to shine.
Of course glitzy, red-carpet-worthy gowns are eternally alluring - Mulberry and Oscar de la Renta and Jenny Packham led the pack this season - but now the dirty-metallic daytime looks seen at Balmain and Proenza Schouler feel just as desirable.
With the festive season fast approaching, look to Stella McCartney and her sporty silhouette metallic dresses toughened up with black ankle boots for perfect day-to-evening party dressing, while if full-on glitz is your look of choice then Dolce & Gabbana has it covered.
"You're never too old to shine, even if it's just a pinch of stardust," says Vogue fashion director Lucinda Chambers.

We're happy to finally announce the winners from our American Apparel x DIY Halloween Contest

The response for this year's contest was absolutely insane. We received over 1000 entries this year, chock full of awe-inspiring, do-it-yourself creativity. It was incredibly difficult looking through all the submissions and choosing the winners. We just want to thank everyone who participated and we will be looking forward to seeing what you come up with for SPOOKBOOK 2012

Freja Beha Posed Naked On A Couch For Santa Lolla

Another case of an amazing foreign model in a rather average Brazilian ad campaign this season: Freja Beha photographed by Henrique Gendre for accessories label Santa Lolla. A different art director and photographer would have made all the difference there.
Watch the making of video of the Santa Lolla fall 2011 ad campaign with Freja after the jump.

Meet Newcomer Vitor Machado

Vitor is one of my favorite new boys that we shot for the third issue of Made In Brazil Magazine, so expect to be seeing a lot more of him very soon. More digitals after the jump.
