Sterling, Viginia, November 05, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Throughout his 13 years serving honorably in the U.S. military or his time now working in government, BOASY Supply Company owner, Sergio Romano has always had to wear a lanyard. Fashion wasn’t really a luxury in the military and he realized, after separating and starting his civilian career, that one of the most worn and visible business clothing accessories has never really evolved and needed to be updated.
Mr. Romano started BOASY Supply Company with an idea in mind; take something simple and make it better and affordable. Almost three years later, this idea has finally come to market. The patented y-shape lanyard design is sleek, fashion forward and solves common problems with today’s lanyards like straps that constantly flip, tangle or the lanyard never remains stationary becoming more of an annoyance and distraction vice a fashion accessory or marketing tool. The lanyards are made of 100% leather or Portuguese cork cord and gold or silver-plated zinc alloy metal which when combined, creates a high-end look, unlike anything currently on the market. The lanyards are assembled, packaged and shipped from Virginia to locations worldwide.
BOASY (patois for boastful) Supply Company is an independent fashion accessory brand launched in 2015 by owner and designer Sergio Romano. Their offerings are unique, stylish and not found in off-the-rack stores. For more information or to shop their collection please visit: http://www.boasysupply.com

A GARDEN OF VIBRANT DREAMS – Art Project by Shanghai Tang
SHANGHAI, 2014-8-22 — /FASHION TALK/ — Shanghai Tang celebrates its 20th anniversary as the global curator of Modern Chinese chic with a series of collaborations with the visionary creative talents. Inspired by the beauty of nature, this short film “A Garden of Vibrant Dreams” takes us on a mesmerizing journey through a series of six artworks by the talented Chinese artist Jacky Tsai. The video takes us on a continuous fall-through of captivating pop-art scenes that merge one into another to form a dream-like world. The mystic spiral made of round artworks imitate a hypnotic fall where one enters a world within a world (mise-en-abîme). Accompanied by original cinematic music that combines sounds of the East with a modern twist, it is a truly sensory experience that leaves the viewer with a sense of mystery.
“A Garden of Vibrant Dreams” by Shanghai Tang
Artwork by Chinese artist Jacky Tsai
The Jacky Tsai x Shanghai Tang collections are centered on six artworks; the Floral Play, Lotus Porcelain, Carved Dragon, Ginger Flower, Petrol Rainbow and Flying Tiger. In the video, these six artworks are smoothly blended together into one universe to form the garden of vibrant dreams. This magical dimension is filled with colorful energy, reflecting on the optimism of modern China.
The first scene Floral Play – an awaking of nature – captures attention with the opening gates of leaves, followed by acrobats and ballerinas dancing on tree branches, among a kaleidoscope of butterflies, forming a surreal universe embracing the vitality of life. The sudden splash of ink introduces the world of peaceful Lotus Porcelain inspired by Chinese porcelain. The leaves float quietly on a mirror-like river, while acrobats play energetically underneath on the stems. These contrasting actions form an unexpected sense of harmony. As if on wings, we are taken up into the mountains where Chinese motifs of wiggly tree branches and birds grow into a Carved Dragon on a glowing red sunset. We then dive into the radiant sunlight that unexpectedly leads us to the vibrant vegetal universe, the Ginger Flower universe. It takes us through a tunnel of birds, dragonflies, and koi fish coming together to form a picturesque portrait. A compelling spiral of paint swiftly takes the viewer to a colourful valley of Petrol Rainbow set in a landscape of an iceberg with dolphins and gold fish ending the journey by entering a Flying Tiger pop-art like circus. Chinese acrobats and Western performers are seen jumping and swinging up in the air to celebrate the Chinese New Year, on a festive background of Chinese lanterns and dancing lions.
The artworks of Jacky Tsai inspired a limited edition capsule collection of apparel and accessories for women and men. These include the traditional qipao dresses, box clutches, cashmere shawls, porcelain dining set, home products, iPad and iPhone cases, and even a skateboard.

THE COLLABORATION – JACKY TSAI X SHANGHAI TANG
Starting off the festivities, Shanghai Tang collaborates with the contemporary artist Jacky Tsai to create a series of original artworks. Inspired by the vibrant beauty of nature, the six art pieces are filled with colourful energy and reflect the optimism of modern China, in line with the core value of Shanghai Tang. Taking a fashionable twist, these artworks have also inspired a limited edition capsule collection ranging from luxurious qipao and box clutches to delicate tableware and cashmere shawls.
The collection and the artworks are representations of Tsai’s vision to create a unique marriage between traditional Eastern craftsmanship with contemporary Western pop art, as well as Shanghai Tang’s spirit of redefining traditional Chinese luxury with a modern twist.
Jacky Tsai x Shanghai Tang original artworks and the limited edition capsule collection debuted at the Shanghai Tang Mansion (1 Duddell Street) on 15th May at Shanghai Tang’s 20th Anniversary kick-off party in conjunction with Art Basel Hong Kong.

Since graduating in 2008, Jacky has been fascinated with combining traditional Eastern craftsmanship and contemporary Western pop art aesthetic – a vision shared with Shanghai Tang in its pursuit of modern Chinese lifestyle and attitude.

With a staggering 93% of women that own spandex griddles and garments, shapewear is the one product that women hate to love. But lucky for us, this problem is now fixed: the European made, shapewear line called Babalette.
Shapeware can be a total godsend. It helps smooth everything out and give you that extra bit of confidence to wear a satin skirt or a body-hugging dress. But sometimes, the folks who manufacture shapewear get a little carried away.
After all, who doesn’t remember when Octavia Spencer recounted how Melissa McCarthy had to take her Spanx off at an award show because they were so painful!
Babalette, Inc. is a revolutionizing shapewear line that solves all the problems of the existing shapewear brands in the market. It’s genius designs are comfortable and made with patented breathable materials that will allow you to wear them all day long. “Even at the office”, according to the testimonies of customers who have tried and love to Babalette.
What is more, its European designs go beyond shaping with a hugging comfort. The designs include seamless edges, attractive lace finishes, and even a butt lifting thong-effect.
Our personal favorite is Babalette’s Anti-Cellulite Collection, which is made of a patented fabric that contains tens of thousands of microcapsules with ingredients used to target cellulite like caffeine or anti-fatty acids.
So don’t throw the towel and give up on shapewear quite yet, and get a hold of Babalette’s sophisticated garments!

The best fashion is versatile, so if you are looking for a piece that can be worn in various different styles, creating many looks that are ideal to be worn from daytime though to the evening, then Roland Mouret might just have the answer.
A Roland Mouret Original, the TTD (Top, Tunic, Dress) can, as the name suggests, be worn in three different ways. In the daytime, you can choose to wear it as a top with some flattering trousers or a skirt, or perhaps you could team it with some leggings to create the tunic fit. When the evening rolls in, why not wear the Top Tunic Dress on its own for a statement dress.
With its sleeveless cut, twisted neck panel, fitted body and metallic zip fastening at the rear, the Top Tunic Dress flatters your shape, however you choose to wear it.
The SOL TTD is available from Roland Mouret in four different shades (fern green, white, black, red) so you are sure to find the perfect shade to co-ordinate with the rest of your Spring/Summer wardrobe.
His unconventional approach to fashion design, preferring to shape his fabrics directly onto the models rather than working from sketches, has seen Roland Mouret establish a reputation as one of the modern masters of structure and aesthetics. The now famous Galaxy dress, a firm favourite of Victoria Beckham and other A List celebrities, was widely proclaimed amongst fashion critics as the Dress of the Season in 2005.

The fashion search engine Style in View recently announced that it was forming a partnership with global company ASOS.com, the fashion and beauty retailer.
Recently launched in beta, Style in View plans to collect all the latest looks from both the high street and boutiques. The aim is to make it easier for shoppers in the UK to find information on the latest trends all in one place. This week will see the first ASOS products appearing on Style in View.
Style in View co- founder Dexter Grima said that he was “very excited” about the arrangement with ASOS, as it has gained a reputation for having the “latest fashion and styles”, and is Britain’s “largest online-only fashion and beauty retailer”. ASOS has its own fashion line, as well as selling other brands and, Mr. Grima added, Style in View plans to add them within the next week. ASOS has a target audience of males and females aged between 18 and 34, and Mr. Grima is optimistic that Style in View will help young shoppers “find the latest trends and styles at prices that are more affordable.”
Thousands more brands from major retailers are to be added by Style in View in the next twelve months.
One of the biggest trends that was spotted on the catwalks throughout the various Autumn/Winter ’12 shows was structured layering, and this is more than evident in the new season Winter Wonders collection from French designer Roland Mouret.
The Barnicles dress is a key look for the AW12 season, with its layered look giving the illusion of a two piece blouse and skirt set. The soft, fitted crepe top with long raglan sleeves contrasts with the heavier peplum of the A-line apron skirt that accentuates the waist, and the dress is drawn together with an exposed panel leading down the back.
Meanwhile, the Markham coat is sure to become a staple in any winter wardrobe this season. This double breasted coat is tailored using a grape/dark purple stretch felt, with a vent pleat formed at the back that brings a modern approach to this classic winter coat.
One of the highlights of the Roland Mouret AW12 show was this Drummle dress in a traditional looking Prince of Wale check. This layered long-sleeved dress features an asymmetrical neckline and a fitted inner layer underneath the skirt, with a tie at the back and the exposed zip reaching halfway down the dress that has become something of a signature in Roland Mouret pieces.
These are just some of the fantastic pieces from the latest collections that are currently available from Roland Mouret, and there is no better time to invest in the best items from the AW ’12 collections, as Roland Mouret are now offering free shipping on all orders made via their website throughout December.
Born in Lourdes in 1962, Roland trained at a fashion college in Paris but left after just three months to work as creative director at French magazine Gai Pied Hebdo in the 1980s. Having founded his own design group with Andre and Sharai Meyers in 2000, Roland left the group in 2005 and took a two-year hiatus from the fashion world, but now he is back in the forefront of the fashion industry, with the help of his new financial backer Simon Fuller.

Chris Dewbury, Sales Director at Hunter explains: “Hunter’s Outerwear collection is a natural extension of the footwear brand. Over the years our brand has become synonymous with style and great British manufacturing quality, and so, we decided to evolve our existing outerwear range to give our female customers a little bit of extra comfort, warmth and a bit of Hunter’s signature style this season. ”
Hunter’s Women’s Outerwear collection is comprised of three key pieces, each of which are also available in three different colours and sizes, and designed to fit just right with an existing winter wardrobe. The collection includes:
The ¾ Quilted Down Parka: Designed to help keep women warm and stylish this winter the Hunter ¾ length quilted down parka has roomy pockets and super-soft quilting will keep the wearer snug, while the sleek silhouette and luxe detailing ensure that there won’t be any sacrifice on chic and effortless Hunter style. Wear with a cashmere polo neck, skinny jeans and a pair of our classic boots for an effortlessly cool winter look.
The Short Quilted Down Sports Jacket: Hunter believe that no winter wardrobe is complete without a chic down coat, and the updated style of the Short Quilted Down Sports Jacketis the perfect investment for the cold winter months. It comes in classic black, red or navy and features sports-luxe down quilting, a removable hood and double entry pockets, perfect for keeping hands warm and toasty, whether the wearer is apres-ski or in the city.
The Short Quilted Down Jacket: This is the ultimate sports-luxe cover-up, designed to keep the wearer warm dry and casual. The Hunter Quilted Down Jacket is also available in navy, red and black and is stamped with Hunter’s signature license plate, making it a Hunter classic that every woman should own.
Chris Dewbury, continues: “While winter is undoubtedly on its way, we know that our customers will need clothing that will keep them warm and dry this season. We believe that our new Hunter outerwear range for women is not only going to keep women cosy, but also let them experience Hunter’s world-renowned quality and design in another part of their winter wardrobe, which we’re really excited about.”

Designed to keep children’s feet dry, Hunter Boots’ new kids collection is perfect for school trips, rainy mornings and weekends spent in the great outdoors this Autumn. The new Autumn/Winter collection features brand new styles designed to be fun and useful, such as Hunter’s first glow-in-the-dark boot and a roll-up kids welly boot.
With the nights drawing in, Hunter are proud to announce the launch of their new Kids collection for Autumn/Winter 2012. Featuring an amazing selection of colours, designs, features and accessories, Hunter Boot have created a collection that will keep kids and their parents happy.
Chris Dewbury, Sales Director at Hunter explains: “The team at Hunter are particularly happy with our latest kids collection because it offers so much choice for all the family, from boots, to socks, to bags. We’re especially pleased with our Original Kids’ Glow Bootwhich glows green in the dark and is fitted with light reflective strips and a reflective logo, making it perfect for after dark activities, such as Halloween and Bonfire Night.”
As well as glowing green boots, Hunter’s latest kids collection also offers a number of handy accessories that are great for kids and their parents, such as a mini version of the Classic Boot Bag, the Kids’ Rucksack Boot Bag. The bag, which is available in two vibrant colours, fuschia and blue, is designed to be useful as well as stylish. Featuring adjustable shoulder straps, a reinforced back panel, a reflective logo and an extra internal pocket, it can be used for much more than just carrying muddy wellies this Autumn.
Because the nights are getting darker and colder, Hunter know that keeping little toes toasty this Autumn is very important. So the collection also features a number of variations on their classic welly socks. Kids can choose to accessorise their welly boots with anything from classic school shades such as navy, green and black, or go for bright stripes that will add a pop of fun to their welly boots. The Autumn/Winter 2012 collection features Hunters Kids’ First Welly Socks which are designed to fit the smallest of feet.
Because welly boots can take up a lot of space in bags and the car, Hunter boots have put their innovative stamp on a pair of boots that kids can take with them easily when they travel. The Original Kids’ Tour has a light, flexible leg crafted onto a durable Hunter rubber sole so it can be quickly rolled away and packed into a suitcase without taking up lots of space or weight. With a comfortable cuff top and Hunter buckle to the side, the Tour maintains its good looks, as well as its functionality, making it perfect for camping, weekends away and festivals.
Dewbury continues: “Hunter’s Autumn/Winter Kids collection is inspired by our adult collection of wellington boots giving little ones the chance to have as much fun as mum and dad do in their Hunter boots. We’ve also added lots of little fun features, such as reflective strips and the added bonus of extra colours and accessories to make sure that kids feet are warm, dry and fashionable this year. ”
Hunter Original Kids’ boot is available in sizes 8 – 14 and the Hunter Kids’ First boot is available in sizes 4 – 1.
Hunter’s new Autumn Winter 2012 collection captures the key trends of the season with their latest fashion range and cutting edge innovation in their Balmoral package. These finely detailed new fashion styles offer equestrian-inspired elegance, while unique textures and colours burst with pattern and luminescence. The technical Balmoral range offers a greater choice for the keen sportsman with warmer linings and shorter styles.
A spokesperson for Hunter Boot explains: “We’ve been working on our new Autumn and Winter collection, and we believe that our iconic Hunter Original Tall Gloss boot has captured all the definitive colours of the season with four rich new shades, including lagoon green and cocoa. We’ve also created a new pearlescent rubber, which is an updated version of the Original Tall and available in green, orange and purple, while our Original Brit is now available in gold.”
Hunter have also revamped their best-selling equestrian-inspired Regent boot, which now boasts a wealth of new Hunter detailing and contoured lines. A new last shape, with a clean, simple silhouette, the Belsize adds classic allure, while the versatile Belsize Calidore is a two-in one-style which can be worn long with a buckled calf piece, or as a short ankle boot.
The spokesperson for Hunter continues: “Hunter’s Snow collection was launched very successfully in Autumn Winter 2011, and the boots combined benefits of warmth, grip and style were a real hit with our customers. For Autumn Winter 2012, we have introduced the Original Snow Gloss, the Original Snow Quilt and the Original Snow Short to the range. And we haven’t forgotten about the kids, as our Original Kids Glow, which glows in the dark, is perfect for winter, and will be fun to wear at Halloween, on Bonfire Night or even for building a fun pillow fort indoors.”
