fashion mash-up

It's so totally awesome that spring is here, summer will follow and we get to break out our itty bitty sexy tees and mini's, tanks and kini's. It's time for backyard barbeque's and our favorite summer songs to dance away the sunsets to. I love a music mash-up, when a DJ blends together two songs to make one glorious tune. And when it comes to clothes, I can't get enough of a good fashion mash-up. Of which there are a ton this season. Robertson Ave. favorite Catherine Malandrino has paired up with preppy sportswear brand Lacoste for a 12 piece collection that rocks iconic tennis chic. Malandrino, a tennis player herself, adorns the sporty glam pieces which include slouchy harem pants, wide-leg trousers, pleated miniskirts, tie-dye polos with bat-wing sleeves, and collared crochet gowns that graze the floor with Lacoste's logo, the crocodile. Over in the home department, Italian luxury brand Missoni has paired up with budget friendly Target on everything from clothes to bed sheets to dinnerware to bikes, all in Missoni’s signature swirls, zigzags, and near-hallucinogenic florals. And already on the likes of fashion darlings Rachel Bilson and Rose Byrne is the Derek Lam collection for eBay. E-commerce genius. The designer designed an assortment of iconic dress styles he envisions for every woman's wardrobe and you can bet they are selling out quickly. Will you bid on it?
