The Future of Designer Fashion: More Affordable and Fast

Categories:Designer Shoes

The internet has changed everything. People don't really buy DVD's, cable is on its way out, and we have access to world-wide information 24/7. Even designer fashion has changed significantly, and it's only going to get better.

20 years ago, if you wanted to get your hands on an authentic vintage Chanel bag at 25% the retail price, you can just forget about it. With the internet, that has changed. The most coveted fashion pieces are available in online resale at competitive pricing and vast selection.

It's clear that the internet is changing nearly every aspect of our lives, and mostly for the better.

So, when I read about Tamara Mellon's new company, I found the fresh approach to be intriguing.

Tamara Mellon with lots of Jimmy Choo shoes

For those who don't know, Tamara Mellon is the co-founder of Jimmy Choo. She has since left Jimmy Choo and is currently running a new shoe line, Tamara Mellon.

Submission sandals

Now here's what's so intriguing. Tamara Mellon strives to provide quality high-end designer shoes with one big difference. No wholesalers. This means, that the shoes are never sold at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, etc. Because of this, buyers can enjoy lower prices (think $350 instead of $600 for a pair of classic pumps), and order new styles immediately once they're available.

Goddess sandals

Cutting out wholesalers for a 40% discount is compelling. But, the jury is still out on whether this business strategy will work.

It appears that even an ex co-founder of Jimmy Choo may be having a hard time exposing her beautiful brand to customers. We've spotted several of her beautiful shoes on sale at wholesalers, in spite of the brand stating that they will not use wholesalers just a couple months ago. Here are some of the beautiful shoes on sale: leopard ankle bootie, suede knee boots, seashell-embellished ankle bootie.

Frontline sandals

What do you think? In this digital age, is it possible for designer brands to thrive without the branding and exposure that wholesalers offer?

9 of the Best Smartwatches You'll Actually Want to Wear

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

These timekeepers look traditional, but they're packed with an array of smart features and advanced technology. 


Pilots and world travelers have always loved Breitling, and their latest Exospace B55 links to your phone to make multiple time zones, chronograph timing functions, and even messaging a breeze.

Exospace B55 ($7,170),

Michael Kors


An oversized gold watch has become a trademark of Michael Kors; the latest rendition syncs with your mobile phone to provide an activity tracker, messaging, and music controls. It can even snap a selfie!

Access Slim Runway Gold-Tone Hybrid Smartwatch ($250), 


One of the first analog hybrid smartwatches, the Helvetica is as easy-to-use and legible as the font for which it's named. The smartwatch features an activity tracker and boasts two years of battery life and water resistance to 3 ATM (about 96 feet).Helvetica 1 Smart


Some watches on this page (like the ones from Michael Kors and Misfit) are part of the Fossil Group, a leader in the fashionable hybrid analog smartwatch category. Fossil's namesake brand continues to push boundaries; their new Accomplice is a slimmer, and very appealing, wearable whose most attractive feature might be the fact it doesn't look like a smartwatch at all.

Q Accomplice Hybrid ($175-$215),


You'd never guess from the minimalist exterior exactly how much the Phase Silver can do. From fitness tracking and alerts to an array of customizable notifications, the undercover smartwatch also comes with tons of optional straps perfect for multiple looks—or disguises. 

Misfit Phase Silver ($195) and Misfit Phase Assorted Straps 3-Pack in Seaside ($60),

Frederique Constant

Frederique Constant was one of the first Swiss watchmaking brands to court and introduce new technology into watches made with traditional watchmaking techniques. Here, activity and sleep tracking, messaging, and a world timer all come in an attractive steel case with a mother-of-pearl dial set with eight diamonds. 

Horological Smartwatch ($950),

Tag Heuer

The TAG Connected might be fully digital, but it was one of the first smartwatches to base its looks entirely on the traditional analog wristwatch. It comes in luxurious rose gold, but the owner of the watch has the option to exchange it for a Carrera Calibre 5 mechanical watch once the two-year warranty expires.

TAG Heuer Connected Rose Gold ($9,900),


Part of the Nokia group, Withings makes this Steel HR, which combines the classic analog watch with a fully-featured connected activity tracker. A 25-day battery life eliminates the constant charging, and advanced heart-rate monitoring keeps track of all relevant health data. 

Withings Steel HR (36 mm, $180; 40 mm, $200), 


Austere Scandinavian design informs this hybrid watch from Skagen (part of Fossil) with features like text and e-mail notification, music selection, date and time adjustment, and activity and sleep tracking. No endless charging here—the watch's battery will last four to six months. 

Hagen Connected Hybrid Smartwatch ($225 and available 1/25),
