Website Armarium is one of the fashion world’s most beloved destinations. Contrary to popular belief, fashion editors do not in fact own all of the stunning clothing they wear. Many pieces are gifted to them, or loaned to them by the designer’s themselves—much like celebrities albeit to a lesser extent. While the average person can’t enjoy these perks, it doesn’t mean they should have to wait until next season to borrow those pieces. And we’re talking this season’s hottest items (not past seasons, like many competitors offer), as well as a dedicated team of high profile stylists to help you find the best fit and accessories to complete the look. Here, we tap the Armarium team for their 2017 style predictions, last minute holiday outfit inspiration and what will be everywhere this fashion week.
"We are loving the velvet trend (such as the Haider Ackermann green velvet dress with one leg exposed that Adriana Lima just rented!), the vintage pieces that are lace and embroidered from LaDoubleJ and strong accessories from the latest Ranjana Khan jewelry collection that can jazz up your own pieces for a holiday party."
"We are looking forward to strong-shouldered statement mini dresses, bold graphic prints and embellished accessories. For fashion week we're anticipating people renting a lot of Christopher Kane, Mugler and Vaccarello—anything that's party friendly and makes a statement to take on the industry parties and street style photographers!"
"Typically, women do come to us for a specific event in mind such as a wedding, a black tie gala or a cocktail party, but when she experiences the assortment and collections, she finds many more uses for the service—such as a trip to Tulum for a 40th birthday, a date night downtown or a trip with her girlfriends to Miami for the weekend. Our clients really want to experiment and have fun with high fashion for many more occasions than just a gala or wedding."
"We have an extensive Style Brigade of industry experts, ranging from A-list celebrity stylists to vintage specialists. They all have different backgrounds and aesthetics, which makes for an interesting selection process when choosing who to work with! They'll help you with everything from finding a look to accessorizing it to making sure it fits you perfectly."
