Chanel trunk show at Scoop NYC!

Vintage Chanel Trunk Show - Scoop NYC Dallas[2]

Started by college buddies Gerard Maione and Seth Weisser, the chic Soho boutique called What Goes Around Comes Around offers vintage fashions from decades past. With some garments dating back to the 1860s, these men have one of the most sought-after old-world fashion collections in the industry, and they’ve decided to share it with always fashionable Dallas in the form of a Chanel trunk show. Come out today through May 19 to Scoop NYC in Highland Park Village, where WGACA will unveil some vintage pieces from the label.

Expect to see the famed Chanel 2.55 bag along with other chic designs from The House of Coco and mingle amongst the crème de la crème of Dallas fashion lovers. Meantime, chickadee, make you sure you gather up the change from your car seats, couch cushions and that one cup holder, because vintage Chanel comes at a price. But, truly, can you put a price on owning history? Exactly. Keep in mind that the trunk show lasts the duration of store hours each day — hope to see you there.

Spring is hitting Dallas with a SPLASH — of color, that is.

Designer Timo Weiland is unveiling his spring and summer 2013 line at the Snider Plaza’s Piermarini Boutique. Nebraska-born Weiland has always been art-inclined, showing an interest in photography, sketching and painting. With his fashions being sold on Style.com and a feature story in Forbes, Weiland is quickly becoming a breakout star in the fashion world.

Rich in chic patterns and bold prints, Timo Weiland’s apparel delves into a nautical and mosaic style for this season’s trendy looks. Black and white colorblocking characterizes the men’s collection, as Weiland uses urban-influenced jackets and sport-styled shorts to rock this seasons runway. The schoolboy trend of matching cardigan with a crisp cotton short is put together flawlessly in Weiland’s men’s line. He even allows pops of brightness in his men’s wear, as bold oranges and blue make cameo appearances throughout.

Women get even more color in the spring/summer collection. Missoni-inspired printed dresses are elegant in their flowing and breezy nature. Weiland mixes up his women’s wear with gothic-infused tailoring and trends.

But seeing is believing: Come join the designer himself for a night filled with food, fashion and fun from 3 to 6 p.m. this Saturday, May 11, at Piermarini Boutique. Get up and personal with Timo and his fierce fashions.
