The then Golden Goose Outlet hush-hush Holmes & Yang line debuted to L.A.s fashion set at Maxfields, where the label was initially exclusively sold, resulting in solid reviews. Style.comreported, "The collection, done in a palette of cream, navy, and black, features luxe shirts and trousers; textured silk jumpsuits; motorcycle jackets; leather, silk-lined blazers; and ruched strapless dresses worthy of the red carpet." Not bad, huh? Two years later, that high-end line started selling exclusively at Barneys, which now carries the labels full line, including its Fall 2012 collection.

Article excerpted from will come as a bit of a bore to Canadians. Its kind of like me pointing out the heinously obvious and saying things like "Gareth Pugh is a young British designer". She has a femme fatal aura and an attitude that screams I am Parisian.We all know the story: she started as a model, then a stylist and muse, and then became what she is today, a magazine editor. Her contribution lies in stimulating fashion culture and influencing it.
