Former magazine editor and Fashion Director at Barneys Marina Larroudé has spent many years immersed in beautiful clothing and accessories. Larroudé decided to launch her namesake collection with her husband because she identified the need in the shoe market for a luxury product at an accessible price point. “I knew I wanted to design shoes using the best materials available and then to figure out the rest in terms of producing at a price I could pass on to the customer,” Larroudé told POPSUGAR. She recognized that when it came to luxury accessories, people were less willing to “take a risk.” Shoppers might have been drawn to a bright color or a fun print, but hesitant to make an investment in something that may not be a safe, classic choice. “My thought with this collection was that you can actually buy the emotional piece, and it’s going to last as … Read the rest
My summer is looking a bit different this year: I don’t have any international getaways planned, all of my group trips are on hiatus, and now my patio has become my source of capturing that vacation feeling. As I sit on my outdoor chairs and sip on a homemade (and poorly mixed) cocktail, in my mind its an Aperol Spritz, and I’m aboard a yacht along the pastel shores of the Amalfi Coast. It’s a bit of a stretch, and a long way from anywhere in Italy, but what’s been helping me at least transport there mentally, is wearing a chic designer bikini.
As much as I love a good bargain, even I succumb to the beauty of a designer swimsuit. From the luxurious looking fabrics to the one of a kind details, it’s really hard to pass up a fancy bikini when the design is right. Right now I’ve … Read the rest
Short of breaking out a 3D printer, designer and TikTok star Sarah Hambly created her own nearly identical copy of Taylor Swift’s dress at the 2021 Grammy Awards, and the attention to detail is remarkable. The Oscar de la Renta minidress was made with beige organza covered in floral appliqués and featured a high neckline and bell sleeves that gave it a ’70s-inspired vibe. With a lot of thread and one resilient sewing machine, Sarah spent the next three weeks re-creating the dress from scratch, and the finished result is a spring masterpiece.
Using a mesh fabric that she dyed nude and coated with a water-soluble stabilizer – to prevent any tears like the seam Taylor ripped under her right arm on Grammys night – Sarah set to work with her embroidery machine. “I just sat here and counted stitches and changed thread, changed needles, and just worked with that,” … Read the rest

Gucci’s Alessandro Michele reinvented the wheelhouse for the presentation of his Aria collection, which was unveiled during a thrilling 15-minute video that commented on the iconic brand’s popularity. But Michele knows Gucci’s 100-year fame is rooted in historic success, so he wanted to pay respect to those who came before him, as well as those whom he respects in the industry. Though social media had been rife with rumors of a Balenciaga collaboration leading up to the show, Michele was more just inspired by Demna Gvasalia, the Georgian fashion designer who has brilliantly incorporated Cristóbal Balenciaga’s DNA through his own vision for the house.
Michele has been delighted to watch him and felt a connection with him, as he explained to BoF. “I wanted to go back to the things I loved in Balenciaga and let fashion speak the same language. We need to speak with everybody, there should … Read the rest
A good hair day gives me the same feeling I get when a Corgi passes me on my walk, or after a hard workout, or even a spoonful of peanut butter. A really good hair day makes me feel warm and fuzzy, ridiculously happy, and carefree. You know what else it makes me feel? Like I’m a confident 30-something with her life together, and that, my friends, is no easy feat.
It’s hard to come across clean and effective products that cater to all hair types and make you (and your locks) feel as if you just left the salon. Briogeo, which recently launched at Ulta Beauty, claims to be and do all of the above (plus every product is free of sulfates, silicones, phthalates, parabens, DEA, and artificial dyes, which is just an added bonus). The beauty editor in me needed to find out the truth, so I enlisted … Read the rest
Could a fashion collaboration be any cooler? We don’t think so. Circular-fashion advocate Ganni is collaborating with emerging London-based brand Ahluwalia for Ganni’s 2021 reworked collection. Ganni x Ahluwalia includes an edit of outerwear, dresses, skirts, and tops made from the brands’ surplus materials. This will be Ahluwalia’s first venture into womenswear and the first of two 2021 collaborations with Ganni.
Priya Ahluwalia is the trailblazing British designer of her eponymous fashion brand. The designer is the recent winner of the 2021 Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design, which is the latest in a list of impressive accolades – including being part of the British Fashion Council’s 2019/2020 NewGen initiative and the recipient of the 2020 LVMH Prize. Ahluwalia is known for using surplus materials in the creation of forward-thinking collections that are also informed by the designer’s dual Indian-Nigerian heritage and London roots.

We get it—it’s a little painful to fork over large sums of money on undergarments and the like that rarely see the light of day. Equally painful is wasting your hard-earned cash on lingerie that lives up to the old “you get what you pay for” adage. That’s why we made it our mission to share with you the brands that do affordable lingerie the best, from fast fashion (think Topshop) to niche labels (think Baserange).
Our advice when shopping for affordable underwear, bras, slips, and sleepwear? Stick to muted or classic hues (they look more expensive than bright colors) and avoid embellishments and prints when you’re going for a high-end look. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference it makes. Keep scrolling to check out the brands we recommend and shop our picks from each.
