ACHRO’s Spring Summer 2016 Collection brings daydreams of the sea.
MJ Park, the mastermind behind the Los Angeles based brand, offers a dreamy perspective on design. It’s an aesthetic defined by draping, volume and above all, minimalism. Asymmetrical pleated skirts and striped button-down shirt-dresses directed a nautical theme this season.
Earth tones of beige, navy and ash black captivated the beauty of tencel culottes and oversized coats. Each piece offered a dynamic to the serenity among this collection. Denim however, can’t be overlooked: denim dresses, tailored and wide-leg pants bring a realization of how these wondrous pieces can be worn for your everyday.

Voilà, on est de retour !! Avec notre quatrième EDIT (c’est dingue comme le temps passe vite !) – juste à temps pour les toutes premières prémices du printemps. Enfin, au moins dans la tête des marques. En tout cas, c’est le moment idéal pour vous montrer notre nouvelle série avec des femmes qui donnent envie de porter toutes les tendances de la saison. Notamment ce phénomène qui reste indémodable : les superpositions.
C’est un peu l’esthétique des années 90 qui aurait évolué pour devenir le style emblématique de la fille cool d’aujourd’hui. Dessous, dessus, c’est plus une astuce vestimentaire qu’autre chose, intemporelle quand elle est bien maîtrisée. Un peu comme avec Jessica, sur qui toutes les variantes de la superposition auraient leur place sur un tapis rouge…
Mais ça peut vraiment fonctionner sur tout le monde, même quand on est plus t-shirt décontracté que robe fleurie. Sur une fille d’aujourd’hui, il faut juste prendre ses distances avec une esthétique qui a longtemps rimé avec grunge, en créant des looks féminins qui soulignent et mettent en valeur la silhouette. C’est la clé. Avec les chaussures plates.
Même si j’aime prendre de la hauteur et me sentir super féminine en talons, le plat, c’est sympa, ça permet de garder les pieds sur terre et de partir à l’aventure sur un coup de tête.

LA is adopted touch
It is full of softness, comfort, well-being. It's a comforting mode, which relies on the quality of contents. The king of the shirt made n Los Angeles? Whoever puts all Californians agree: James Perse. In 1994, California launched its brand; Today, his label is the darling of all the followers of cool and James has extended its range to dresses, shirts and cool pants (interior pants ... well, sweat!). It is no secret that Los Angeles is the Mecca of jeans: 75% of premium quality jeans are produced there.Among the cult brands, we accept, of course, Current / Elliott and his jeans washout absolutely perfect! For more fancy, the focus is on the brand Hudson Jeans (palm print template is to die for).
Dozens of other brands made n LA gradually invade the shelves of the most advanced concept stores in the world. Among them, Anine Bing and mini-shorts denim (the charlie boots nails also worth a visit), Achro, a brand new chic minimalist label (special mention for trench coats pastel color), and The Squad, ultra-confidential brand at conceptual trend growing! Good news: all these brands obviously engaged in France.
Finally, very special mention for The Reformation: the made n label that appeals THE VIP planet. Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Karlie Kloss ... do swear by the fashion brand created by Yael Aflalo. The peculiarity of this label? Suggest an ultra-desirable fashion, entirely green and handmade in Los Angeles. The brand's slogan is clear: "We make killer clothes That do not kill the environment. "Translation:" We make clothes that tear without damaging the environment. "The best-sellers: the dresses (short, long, draped, plain, patterned ...) and the famous sweatshirt tribute to Cindy Crawford, which was last seen worn by all the it girls.

Before moving out to NYC I was told that I should make my way to Upstate New York to a little artsy town called Beacon. Last week, I went on a day trip with my sister who was in town and got to visit Dia:Beacon which was just a photographer’s dream…not only was there inspiring art, but the building was filled with natural light..my favorite thing! Also, I am not used to being in front of the camera but I think the lighting and my fall ready outfit from Achro helped eased the pain. And if you are here because of my Instagram post, you know I’m offering a promotional code “JOANNEPIO20” for 20% off anything on the site which ends Oct. 15th, so get on it because fall is here (well, at least in NY)!

Sweater dress. If you’ve hung on to your ’90s sweater dresses, pull them out — it’s a resurgent and versatile look for fall. Those old-school fitted cable knits are hot again, as are modern looser cuts, like on the Achro Side Slit Sweater Dress ($139 at Pipe & Row, Fremont). Layer it with an anorak or take advantage of the slit to wear it over pants — another big trend for fall.

Let's face the facts: Much of the country is up to its knees in slush, and a very reliable and climate-attuned rodent has confirmed you may as well get used to it — thanks a lot, Punxsutawney Phil. Yes, it's a long, chilly road to March 20.

Ready for that glorious awakening? We thought so. That's why we reached out to 15 of our favorite shop owners from around the world to find out exactly what their best bets are for warmer-weather buys.
From Brooklyn to Rio de Janeiro to Portland, Paris, and back, these boutique owners and buyers have not only seen it all, but they've also predicted what they think will sell. And, this is advice you've gotta trust — a unique combination of experience and skill at overcoming challenges makes this group of tastemakers exceptionally intuitive. So, now that spring deliveries have begun trickling into stores (we know, crazy!), we're sharing this savvy set's favorite fashion picks — they're just the inspirational jumping-off point we need as we look to sunnier days ahead.
"The perfect spring jacket — it's lightweight with a slouchy silhouette that adds a little edge to any outfit. It's a piece from the first collection of L.A.-based brand Achro. The duo of talented designers (one of whom hails from Alexander Wang) caught our eye with their minimalist and affordable designs." —Ashley Turchin, cofounder, Anthom, Washington, D.C.
"This top combines all of my favorite elements into one shirt: structure, color, and print; versatility (can be easily worn with pleated trousers or jeans); and a modern, boxy silhouette.

Did you shop super cool D.C.-based online retailer ANTHOM at Thread this past weekend? The ANTHOM crew's style is always on the cutting edge, so we wanted to see what they are loving for spring 2014. After the jump, co-founder Ashley Turchin picked out three sporty trends that can be dressed up or down. Keep reading, because it's culottes time.
Culottes: They're baaaack. "This higher waisted long short is a great 'fashion' take on a normal short or a-line skirt."
Sporty track pants: "Track pants are the epitome of easy, comfortable dressing with a bit of edge. These pants have replaced jeans in our book - this pair specifically has done very well for us, they are well-made in a silky poly blend so they're easy to dress up or down."

When you combine a lawyer/model, an artist/entrepreneur, and a scientist/blogger, that also means bringing together a variety of perspectives (not to mention a lot of slashes!). But, the members of the aforementioned ultra-gifted trio have one pretty major common interest that united them to create Anthom, an online store dedicated to finding indie labels from around the world — and that's a keen eye for emerging style and talent.
Anthom's current highlights include a cerulean, floral-print, silk midi-dress from darling designer Samantha Pleet and a gorgeous, eye-popping digital graphic top dubbed "Not Your Grandma's Brooch" by Brooklyn design team How Very Dare. Click through to see some of our favorites, or hop on over to Anthom to choose some of your own.
