Our Custom Shopping Guide for the New Season of Arrested Development
We're counting down the seconds until we can watch season four of Arrested Development, which hits Netflix at midnight PST on Monday! To celebrate, we put together a little shopping guide based on some of our favorite Arrested Development gags--because while it's fun to dress up in costume, we also don't mind buying things that we can wear again.
Now the Story of a Beloved TV Show, and the Costume Designer Who Brings It All Together
It's the final countdown to the premiere of Arrested Development season four--May 26 on Netflix, in case you didn't already have it circled on your calendar--and we here at Fashionista understand your excitement... more than you'll never know. Since a lot of the humor comes from the characters' costumes (who can forget Tobias dressed as a pirate, or Lindsay's "Slut" tank top?) we hopped on the phone with the series' costume designer, Katie Sparks. We asked her for all the details about working with the cast--and we think we may have gotten a tiny hint or two out of her about the new season. Oh, and we definitely asked her about those denim cutoffs--you know the ones. We just blue ourselves in excitement.
Rachel Antonoff Fall 2012: Sweet Sea Dreams and Songs by Alia Shawkat
You can always count on there being a few heartwarming surprises at a Rachel Antonoff presentation--on top of a collection of sweetly wearable clothes, of course. And, needless to say, yesterday's presentation did not disappoint. Let's start with the clothes and then get to Mr. Wendy (the cat supermodel) and the amazing performance by Alia Shawkat. (Yes, I asked her about Arrested Development.) For fall Antonoff diversified her line, with a larger variety of pieces, from two-toned pants to embroidered dresses to a red miniskirt with a change purse sewn in as a pocket. There was a dynamic range of color and print, with easy separates for day, and elegant dress options for night. The starting point for such a mature collection, was actually an activity Rachel did with her mom as a child.
