Fiftytwo Showroom knows that New York is the fashion capital of the world, but we’ve got love for the west coast too. We’ll be conducting a pop-up showroom during Los Angeles Market Week from October 14th to 18th. Ten of our designers will be exhibiting at LA’s Cooper Design Space.

Three of our menswear designers, Richard Chai, Robert Geller, and Timo Weiland, are featured in today’s WWD cover story, Which Men’s Designer Will Hit the Big Time? by writer David Lipke.
Richard Chai’s Spring 2103 runway show took place yesterday, September 6, but his vision began this past March.
Even before his first sketch, the designer had an image for his menswear and Richard Chai Love lines. “Light” – that was the word Chai used to describe his collection. “In the beginning, you have to imagine what your vision will look like,” said Chai.
The designer, depicted below before his runway show, used sheer nylon and printed floral silk throughout his pieces. “There was a winning lightness of spirit to these clothes. They looked fun to wear,” said Maya Singer of Style.com.
Chai’s fashion show, which was held at Lincoln Center yesterday, featured dark denim dresses, cropped halter tops, and flare skirts. His menswear line featured sheer polos and athletic references. “All of it was perfect for the hip urban warrior Chai has always known exactly how to dress,” raved Dhani Mau of Fashionista.com.

FiftyTwo Showroom is so excited to announce the addition of the Rodebjer brand to the showroom’s 2013 Spring/Summer lineup!
Carin Rodebjer grew up far from the world of fashion, on the Swedish island of Gotland. A move to the vibrant cultural melting pot of New York City, and a time well spent at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) gave her a new set of eyes in fashion.
Her style was relaxed, effortless, and her talent apparent. Prior to earning her FIT degree Rodebjer began selling her handmade designs in high-end New York shops, giving birth to the Rodebjer brand in 1999. Since its conception Rodebjer has earned much praise, winning the Designer of the Year award by Swedish ELLE and expanding into the American market through a New York based branch of Rodebjer Inc.
Rodebjer’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection brings her distinct silhouettes and combines them with cool summer colors.
Camus shirt and Sinai pant
Maus blouse and Atacama pant
Wahiba Nature Print tank and Atacama Watermelon pant

Today is Valentine’s Day in Brazil, known in Portugese as Dia dos Namorados. So grab your guy or girl, look into their eyes, and say it with me “Te Amo”. Fiftytwo Showroom is honoring the day by showing some love to our favorite Brazilian brands. So pack your bags because we are taking a trip south.
Clube Bossa: Clube Bossa has made a name for itself with its luxurious swimwear collection. With their original prints and expert draping techniques, Clube Bossa has brought fashion back to the beach.
Jo De Mer: Jo de Mer somehow bottles up a day a la playa in all of her bikinis. Her collection is the perfect combination of surf, sand, and sexy, putting one on makes you feel like the girl from Ipanema.
Serpui Marie: Whether it’s paying homage to the sea with her mother of pearl line, or to the forests with her bamboo clutches, Serpui Marie finds inspiration for her handbag line all around Brazil. But surf or turf, Serpui’s handbags bring a touch of elegance to everyone who wears them.
Osklen: Finally, one for the boys and girls. This line defines cool for both sexes with its luxury sportswear, accessories, and footwear lines. Vibrant colors and prints add an edge to the athletic inspired looks from this Brazilian favorite.
Adriana Degreas: Back to what Brazil does best. Bikinis. It’s no accident that it’s the Gisele’s native country. Fun prints and a touch of luxury sets this line apart from the pack.
For more information or appointments about any of these amazing lines, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Versatile. A word used to advertise much of what is being sold to us these days. Phones now function as cameras, calendars, mini televisions, mp3 players and a million other things once you get “apps” involved. A single book is no longer enough: we have devices that store our books, magazines and newspapers all in one, some of them even letting us surf the web between page-flips. The New York Times remarks on how one particular multi-functional item has grown to be an overwhelming trend: the scarf.
Scarves, arguably the most basic piece of clothing that exists (they are, after all, squares of fabric), are also easily the clothing item that you can be the most creative with. This is possibly what has made them such a hot commodity, as along with our new found love of versatility, we are growing more and more appreciative of personal style and originality.
Ruth La Ferla, writing for the NY Times, notes that this new obsession with scarves has led to an array of “how to” tutorials online, displaying various ways of tying, wrapping, twisting and knotting your scarf. For instance, just last week Refinery29, offered its readers a slide-show titled “How to Tie your Summer Scarves.”
We too have been obsessed with the scarf ever since we were introduced to the amazing patterns, fabrics and embellishments that make up MOIO‘s scarves . The good news is, with all these new tying techniques and the added bonus that most of MOIO’s scarves are reversible, we can get away with wearing them all the time – one day it’s a head-scarf, the next it’s a dress!
Hello bathing suit season! While not quite beach weather, the gorgeous New York City weekend brought out the masses (and their bikinis) to the sun soaked Sheep’s Meadow in Central Park. Popular suits to be seen? Bright tribal and floral prints and classic nautical-inspired stripes were out and about. Check out our swimwear lines Rosa Cha, Osklen, and Jo de Mer who are on trend with colorful prints, graphic stripes, and cutout designs.
It was only last week that we introduced you to With & Wessel, and the perplexing idea of wearing wool in the warm summer months. If you thought this little tidbit of fashion knowhow was interesting, you weren’t the only one! Vogue.com also found it intriguing, and featured the collection on Vogue Daily. Woohoo for wool!
You steal your boyfriend’s over-sized sweatshirt, his razor, and maybe even his credit card(!) Now you can steal his bow ties, too. Although the menswear trend always seems to be in fashion, the bow tie is popping up on the necks of well-dressed women as the apparent go-to item for Spring 2011. Remember a few weeks ago when we told you about C. Chauchat ties? The line, founded in fact by two women, has some great bow ties that you (or your man) can accessorize with. Take a look and see how other ladies are making a statement with this masculine neck wear.
Refinery29 calls bow ties a “fun, springtime accessory.”
