Exclusive Women’s Collection To Be Launched At Scoop NYC During Art Basel
New York, NY (November 12th, 2012) – Scoop NYC and LA><ART have teamed up to launch the Alexandra Grant for Clover Canyon Collection exclusively at Scoop NYC’s South Beach store, located within the Shore Club Hotel during Art Basel. On Thursday, December 6th, Scoop NYC will celebrate the collaboration with an exclusive in-store party in honor of artist Alexandra Grant and Rozae Nichols, Clover Canyon’s designer. LA><ART, a nonprofit contemporary art space in Los Angeles committed to experimental exhibitions and public art initiatives, will be the evening’s beneficiary of 10% of sales.
Alexandra Grant, an American artist based in Los Angeles, has collaborated with Rozae Nichols, the designer behind Clover Canyon, to design a collection of women’s styles using prints inspired by several of Alexandra Grant’s paintings. Grant is known for creating paintings, drawings and sculpture based on explorations of text. Her art has been displayed at museums and galleries around the globe including her first solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the 2010 California Biennial of Art at the Orange County Museum of Art, the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Clover Canyon is designed and produced in Los Angeles, and each of Ms. Nichols’ collections reflects the eclectic, joyful spirit of California through vivid prints and streamlined silhouettes. The Clover Canyon atelier is unique: working collaboratively, and drawing on their shared passion for travel and art, the team designs original prints, and hand-engineers them to frame and enhance the body.
Susan Davidson, President and CEO of Scoop NYC said, "I am thrilled about Scoop’s collaboration with LAXART, Alexandra Grant and Clover Canyon. Alexandra's paintings are beautiful. The prints that Clover Canyon has created from them will truly resonate with our customers."
Rozae Nichols added, "We are so excited to collaborate with Alexandra Grant. Her vivid paintings express a fluid language and feminine beauty in perfect harmony with Clover Canyon. This is such an inspiring project to celebrate with Scoop / Miami Art Basel."
The collection will be sold exclusively at Scoop NYC’s Miami Shore Club location and on www.scoopnyc.com beginning December 6, 2012.
With all the rain and snow here in NY and with winter threatening to lead to frumpiness I went boot searching. I kept coming across countless booties in all colors and styles, heels or not. Here is my question to you:
Classic or Avant-Garde?
You might be wondering what I mean so let me explain. On one hand, Oxford booties are the all time classic shoe style. They are pretty, preppy yet modern with a touch of masculinity that can get you practically anywhere with sophisticated style. On the other hand, there are the reinvented ones, like these Fendi, which are obviously inspired by romanticized eras of the past but have a whole show of their own going on. Tempted? I am!
New York is an epicenter of fashion. Our team had a great time running around NY recently going to fashion shows and celebrity sighting. But the best part of all was the awesome behind the scenes moments, and just watching the spirit of fashion in NY. Even the people on the streets have a very distinctive fashion perspective. Check out these cool out-takes from our photographers Angie Lagou, and Sarah OOsteen during scenes at:

New York Fashion Week is one of the premier fashion weeks in the world. With top designers, models, editors, and celebrities, fashion week in New York is one of the most exhilarating times of the year. The venue, a series of tents at Lincoln Center, is stylish and inviting with large plasma screens showing the previous show for those that may have missed it. New York Fashion Week always has an intense schedule with dozens of designers and runway shows every hour throughout this week dedicated entirely to next season’s collections.
The Spring/Summer 2013 collections have been colorful and wearable. One designer brand, Custo Barcelona, created by Spanish born designer Custo Dalmau is known for their colorful designs and patterns. This year, I got to see the collection first hand during the very upbeat yet laid back runway show. There were many short, fun, and flirty dresses in the spring collection with lots of pinks and greens accenting the garments. Although there were very colorful frocks in the collection, Custo managed to also include some darker hues including black pants and tops with long train-like backs paired with shorts. The collection felt fresh yet still with a kind of sophistication. They showed garments for both men and women so there was something for everyone. Dalmau named the collection "X - Ray" because the collection invites viewers to conjure up the firm's color and graphic universe through the filter of transparencies.
Attended by high profile celebrities including Jay Manuel from America’s Next Top Model, the show was successful and very exciting to watch. With New York Fashion Week comes a major buzz with all types of fashionistas out to participate in this celebration of fashion. Even outside of the main tent, there were many visitors in colorful creations of their own giving a lively and fun feeling to the whole experience.
Custo Barcelona presented X-ray, its new Spring-Summer 2013 collection, today during New York Fashion Week.
Herve Leger by Max Azria was a re-do on a familiar theme. It was the same bandage style geometric printed dresses with a different inspiration. Designer Lubov Azria explained that the latest Spring batch was inspired by the quilts of Gee's Bend, a rural community in Alabama whose women have developed a distinct style of traditional patchworking over the past two centuries. This influence gave the collection new types of geometric patterns. Also there was a nice introduction of flared, girly skirts in to the collection that kept it from being just totally repetitive.

In Conjunction with the opening of Scott Disick’s new Japanese Restaurant RYU, in the Meatpacking District of NYC, this event will focus on highlighting Ryan Haber’s new shoe line for Spring/Summer 2013.
RYU was recently seen on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Chris Brown has said he's eager to put all that Rihanna drama behind him, but the rapper indicated otherwise Wednesday night when he reportedly got into a scuffle with Drake.
TMZ reports that Brown and his entourage butted heads with the "Take Care" singer at New York nightclub W.i.P. (where Mary J. Blige, Ne-Yo and Fablolous were also partying). Apparently it went down like this: Brown sent a bottle of champagne over to Drake's table. The YMCMB rapper and his party then came over and sparked an argument over Rihanna (with whom he was once romantically linked), then punched Brown in the face and threw the bottle at him.
