February's Most Coveted

Everything we want right now.

So maybe we aren’t firm believers in winter’s fate being decided by what a groundhog does or does not see (sorry, Phil), but we sure as Helmut Lang believe in large blizzards. If there’s one thing that casts a very real shadow on impending better weather, it’s a snow day (or twelve).

Six more weeks of winter calls for a little experimentation in the likes of multicolor accessories, Asian beauty trends, and a very little something for those of us whose Valentine’s Day plans include more than DVRing John Tucker Must Die whilst eating takeout. ‘Tis the season—we aren’t here to judge.

Designer Spotlight: Ellery

There’s only so much turtleneck you can take until your body starts craving a little breathing room—think airy layers, kimono sleeves and bell bottoms (yes, you heard us right). Enter: Ellery. In our efforts to fast-track straight to IRL-SS15, we’ve been coveting the Australian designer’s billowy shapes and beachy textiles. Because nothing says “blizzard be gone” quite like strutting through it in silk culottes.

Dark Silver

Somewhere on the spectrum between gunmetal and glitter lies a shade just south of silver—a moodier, less precious tone we’ve been adding to our arm parties this month. Think of it as a go-with-everything, late-winter alternative when you’re stuck in a rose-gold rut. #AllRhodiumPlatedEverything.

Joseph's Technicolour Dream Bag

You know that stop-and-stare sitcom scene when all the men’s heads turn for a post-makeover Anne Hathaway (or equivalent ‘who-dat’ moment)? There are few such real-life scenarios on the other side of the gender equation. But to make up for those rare sightings, we’ll stop dead in our tracks, jaws agape, for a kaleidoscopic clutch or variegated Valentino. A crystalline Rockstud? Now that’s what we call a statement bag.

Asian Beauty

Whether it’s a Shu Uemura eyelash curler or a sea kelp sheet mask, we’ve been transfixed by Asian cosmetology since we first pressed a finger into an air cushion foundation pad (don’t get us started). The latest tricks and treatments we’ve borrowed? Slathering on serums infused with unpronounceable herbs and powders packed with rice enzymes—now there’s a carb you can actually include in your post-Super Bowl party cleanse.

Valentine's Day

Cliché as it is to join the throngs buying non-cotton uncomfortable undergarments come February 13th , we’ve come to embrace the V-Day vapidity. After all, it’s the one day a year that actually forces us out of our normcore-panty comfort zone and into something a little more, er, celebratory (read: matching), for once. It’s the perfect excuse to indulge in a little haltered lace or tulle set. Saint Valentine was totally a disciple of Agent Provocateur, right?
