MTV will resurrect its cult favorite fashion program House of Style, which hasn’t aired in almost a decade.
Rather than broadcasting as a full half-hour TV show as it did from 1989 to 2002, new House of Style programming will be integrated across MTV’s multiple media platforms. Highlights from the show’s past — including a video of Naomi Campbell’s acne removal methods, and another of Sofia Coppola and Spike Jonze producing a guerilla fashion show — have been organized into a video archive hosted by the fashion news blog MTV Style. The blog also plans to publish three essays inspired by the show over the next few weeks.
On August 7, MTV will release a short documentary called House of Style: Music, Models and MTV. The film includes interviews with Cindy Crawford and Rebecca Romijn — both past hosts of the show — as well as Todd Oldham, Anna Sui, Coco Rocha, and vocalist Azealia Banks.
“The idea of the new House of Style is that it runs on all of our platforms,” said MTV executive Dave Sirulnick in an interview. “You’ll see it on television, on the web, on our aps. Not a lot of people are looking to consume 20-minute television shows on their phones. At least not yet.”
Nevertheless, Sirulnick is auditioning hosts for the show. MTV will announce who’s got the job on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 6.
Navy? Nah. Not the usual school boy blue that seems to pop-up every spring and summer as a“new” trend. There is a new breed of blue tailoring hitting stores now makes standard navy-blue suits and blazers look downright maudlin. We’re talking all kinds of blue here, from the deep ocean blue, powder blues, to the electric blues.
There is something about the color blue that looks great on every guy and there are plenty of cool choices for summer. If you’re into that causal rugged bad boy look, head to toe denim is your answer. A great way to add swag up your denim look is by mixing in a standout print for a stylish twist. The classic dark blue blazer is a menswear staple that every guy should own. Find the cut that’s right for you and try adding your own spin on it with a colorful pocket square. For the guy who’d rather stand out than blend in with the crowd, a blue plaid suit is definitely the way to go. From tailored and dapper to comfy and casual, there’s truly enough blues for everyone.

The color-block look is far from new, but after seeing some color blocking attempts that would only be described as “A Hot Mess”…I started thinking, is there a correct way to color block? I struggled with how to come up with a theory to correctly do this, then I remembered in college I took an elective in Color Theory. Then, BOOM…I remembered the color wheel. Let’s start with the basic color wheel:
I think the first idea to follow would be to try to avoid colors on the exact opposite sides of the color wheel, red and green being a classic example of this. You don’t want to go take a spring stroll looking like a Christmas tree. Complimentary color combinations like these generally have too high of a contrast value and clash heavily against each other. If you change the hue of one of the colors it can be possible to pull it off though.
The most popular theory for combining colors is called the rule of two-thirds. How you achieve the rule of two-thirds starts by making an equilateral triangle (a triangle with 3 equal sides) on the color wheel. In it’s most basic form, the points at the ends of this triangle will be touching either red-blue-yellow or orange-green-purple. From there, you pick two of the three colors that the triangle touches. These colors will almost always harmonize together beautifully.
Now that we have that done, it’s onto the heart of the matter: color blocking. Since color blocking tends to have 3 colors, my recommendation is to use 2 colors from the triangle you made earlier and combine that with a 3rd color outside of it. For example, something like red-yellow-orange or yellow-green-blue works fine, you would just need to change the hue of one of the complimentary colors so you don’t end up with the clash I spoke of above. The final and perhaps most important piece to note about color blocking is that, when you’re putting a color blocking outfit together, it’s best to leave your accessories in neutral colors. Color blocking speaks volumes as it is, pairing this look with colored accessories will throw the entire look off.
1. Pastel. Once you’ve got your neutral and bold hues covered, it’s time to add one more (yes, one more). Pair a deep turquoise or cobalt top with a pastel, or offset bright pants with a rich jacket. For a bright purple shirt.
2. Opposites attract. There are a few things to remember when it comes to color-blocking with the right colors. Make sure you only have one neon color. While it’s totally okay to rock three bold colors, only one of them should be super bright. We like this formula: one bright, one bold, one neutral.
3. Cheat. You’ll look like a fashion genius without putting any thought into it if you simply buy a color-blocked dress. Pick one that works for your skin tone and personal style and make sure all the colors flatter, not just one or two.
Remember Rembrandt Duran? Rembrant was featured on theJUNQUI some time ago. ∆DEEN is an accessory brand, and the message of that brand’s credo is; its not about what you have on, but about how it makes you feel. Right now it consists of a few line of accessories of many different pieces. Inspired mostly by Cartoons and Roses. This season the animated accesory brand ADEEN premieres their “Black & White” series through a collection of short scripted videos. The series consists of four new snapback hats with catchprahses on the front spelled out in large acrylic letters that read, “CUNT”, “HOOD”, “CRE8″ and “LORD”. The videos below are of models wearing and acting out what their hats read, the videos are all done in black in white, a pretty cool concept. The collection is avaialble online now.

YEEEEZZZZYYY!!!!!!! Man, I remember years ago listening to Kanye West during my cancer treatments, his music was such an inspiration. His music helped me stay bold and remember I got major swag and I couldn’t let Cancer or anyone else take it away.Kanye reminded me all over again on October 1, 2011 when he debuted his first womenswear line during Paris Fashion Week.
Today, Kanye presented his second collection, Fall/Winter 2012, which expanded upon many of his Spring 2012 concepts bringing them to a more refined, often darker, place. Overall the collection appears to be, dare we say, “harder, better, faster, stronger.”

Hats are no longer for a “Bad Hair Day”. Judging by what we’ve seen on the runways, hats are most definitely the IT accessory for Fall-Winter 2011.From Wide brim and Fedora hats to school caps and men’s head wear inspired bowlers, the hats for this season are anything but boring. In order to help you make the right choice, we selected three different types of headwear that (by our opinion) will be the most popular this fall.
Wide brim hats
They are romantic, ultra feminine, and they will certainly catch everyone’s attention. These large brim,floppy hats are probably the best complement to the free spirited Bohemian look that is soooo trendy this fall. Fashion JUNQUI’s suggested combinations:
Brim hat+ flowing maxi dress+ platforms
Brim hat+ denim flares+ vintage T-shirt+ vintage faux fur coat
– Photos to get you inspired:
If you prefer classic, boy-chic style, then you should definitely go for Fedora hat .They came in a variety of colors and designs, and this season they are usually decorated with feathers which makes them incredibly catchy. Fedora hats look amazing when paired with formal outfits, but they are just as good when used as a complement to the daytime casual look. Suggested combinations:
Fedora hat +dress+ blazer + oxfords
Fedora + denim shirt +wide leg trousers +oxfords

The detachable collar is versatile, comes in a range of playful styles, and can be tied, buttoned or snapped. Hot!
