Kate Hudson Launches Happy X Nature

Actress Kate Hudson has launched a clothing line! Her ready-to-wear collection, Happy X Nature (a.k.a. Happy by Nature), is full of pretty pieces channeling bohemian vibes—a mix of ruffles, floral prints, breezy linen, and denim fabrics. Definitely summer-approved!

It’s also eco-friendly. As a brand, Happy X Nature believes in reducing the environmental foot-print left by the fashion industry, considering such things as the factories, packaging, garment tags, and even the fabric (some materials incorporate recycled plastic bottles—don’t ask us how that works!), they use.

Equal parts sustainable and stylish, check out some of the pieces for yourself below.

 

Solar Dress, $131: A white, cotton summer dress is a must-have. Wear it like Kate did (pictured) with a hat and booties for a look that’s a little bit country.


Savanna Maxi Dress, $198: This maxi dress is an effortless way to look totally put-together. Pairs well with sandals and sunnies.

 

Floral Angel Jumpsuit, $131: You’ll be ready for an afternoon wine tour, bridal shower, or lunch date, with this pale blue jumpsuit. The tie-back, with it’s ruffles and cute cut-out, is also super girly.


Goldie Dress, $104: Mother-approved (especially since this piece is no doubt named after Kate’s mom, Goldie Hawn), this strapless yellow dress is vacay ready, with its three flowing tiers and sunshine hue.

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs married model-turned-candlemaker, Char Defrancesco, over the weekend in New York City. The celeb-packed invite list included Naomi Campbell, Kaia Gerber, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, Rita Ora—among so many others. While the grooms wowed in matchy-matchy, similar-hued green suits, the guests also dressed to impress (many wearing Marc Jacobs, of course), as they were snapped by photogs on their way into the reception at The Grill in Manhattan. Join the ranks in stepping up your fash-game and be our (wedding) guest, when attending nuptials this spring and summer. How about saying “I do” to one of these?

ASOS DESIGN Long Sleeve Lace Panelled Pleat Midi Dress, $158: The pleated skirt of this peach hued dress is ready for twirling on the dance floor (and we say, “YES!” to the long sleeves!).

Ever New Bonnie One Shoulder Jumpsuit, $180: Accessorize this light pink one piece with a blingy pair of statement earrings and a sparkly clutch.

Nanushka Kalila Dress, $930: The front slit and tie at the neck add a little extra to this solid colour satin dress. Consider it something blue (for you).

BCBGMAXAZRIA Floral Vine Applique Gown, $647: Perfect for an evening affair, the floor-dusting, tiered ruffle skirt of this dress reminds us to eat (wedding) cake. Fittingly the floral pattern also looks like little hearts.

Whistles Tie Back Maxi Dress, $348: This full-length, maxi dress is the epitome of ‘party in the back,’ with its draping tie.

The Spring issue of Real Style Magazine is out now (find it online here)! Flip to the Fashion News section and we highlighted the Thierry Mugler: Couturissime exhibit at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA), through September 8, 2019. Here we continue our conversation with exhibit curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot. Consider it bonus insider info.

Real Style: What separates Thierry Mugler: Couturissime from other fashion exhibits?
Thierry-Maxime Loriot: I have a different point of view and approach and love to collaborate with living artists and pay tribute to their work, but not in a retrospective way, more as an installation about their passions and obsessions; to make it very alive and [something] that people can relate to it. I feel very spoiled to be able to work with these creators. When they asked me, I really wanted to do this project, but with the same team I did the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibitions: the MMFA. The Museum has a unique expertise and an incredible team.

RS: There are more than 150 ensembles included in the exhibit. If you had to choose one, which is your personal favourite?
TML: The whole exhibition is a highlight… most pieces have never been shown to the public. I always love to integrate a lot of photography, videos, music, etc.; elements that visitors can relate to, for different age groups, whether it is a piece worn by a singer or an actress or to put the pieces into a social context and tell a story with it. I would say [Mugler], the man himself and his message, which is very necessary for a young generation to understand: that you can be different, and very creative and be successful at the same time. There is beauty in difference and we should embrace it. Museums provide access and tell a story with these fascinating artists. To take the words of Nathalie Bondil, Director [General and Chief Curator] of the MMFA, it is easier now to see a haute couture dress up close, than to see a Picasso or a Warhol that most museums have in their permanent collections. Fashion and haute couture have long been considered very elitist, it still is very inaccessible. Fashion is a form of art, the only one we can live in. 

RS: What was your reaction when you were asked to curate the exhibit?
TML: I was very touched as [Mugler] refused to everyone for the past two decades. It was a fantastic adventure to have access to him and he was very excited about creating an installation, not a funeral exhibition.

RS: Are there any surprises?
TML: So many… you have to come and visit!!!

Copy Priyanka Chopra’s Bright Satin Trench Coat

Photo: Courtesy of @mimi Instagram. 

Actress Priyanka Chopra stepped out recently in New York City, wearing a bright blue Salvatore Ferragamo Single-Breasted Silk Coat, over a nude hued matching top and trouser set from the label, and slithering snake print accessories. We copied the look (incorporating the actual pair of Aldo Shoes she had on!) for you here…and for less than the cost of just Chopra’s designer coat, we might add!

Mansur Gavriel Silk Trench Coat, $1165: Bright satin really transforms a classic trench to deliver a far more glamourous feel. Tie-up the belt to cinch in the waist. 

Zara Animal Print Mini City Bag, $40: This bag is two spring trends in one piece—fluorescent and snake print—and amps up the wow factor of the overall look. A pop of colour is always a good idea.

 

Kobi Halperin Rayne Long-Sleeve Collared Silk Blouse, $488 and Aritzia Babaton Lincoln Pant, $148: This loose-fitting top and wide-leg dress pant, will never get old—they are wardrobe staples. Not only are they ready to be paired together to create this look, their nude tone also works well with others, especially prints and bold colours.

Aldo Shoes Kedaleclya, $120: These pumps prove you don’t have to break the bank to try the latest trends. They are also a perfect example of mixing high and low fashion for a stylish result.
