The Passionate Collector has something for everyone, including gifts for mom or dad, that special someone in your life, your boss, the techie, travel lovers, or even yourself.

Here Are Some Nifty Items We Picked Out Just for Their Uniqueness and Functionality:

If you can’t go anywhere without your computer, check out the Canadian bags that wear like iron. Not only are these durable but they are also water and dust repellent, high-density, and scratch and stain resistant. This bag also touts versatility, with the convenience of being able to throw it over your back or carry it like a brief case. The choice is yours, and it protects everything!

For those travel lovers, this “smart” luggage has a battery pack that will weigh itself and charge your smart phone, computer, and other devices. That’s pretty cool indeed. It also has a GPS-type locator just in case it ever gets lost. It’s TSA approved, comes in small or large, and has a variety of colors to choose from.

For fun – The Passionate Collector has pink (or white) Furry Alpaca Slippers, and they feel so soft, your feet will fall in love! The fur is long and moves with each step – pretty!

How about something for that mechanical guy? The Padron Watch lets you peer through the watch backing and see the speed of the movement. It’s seriously fascinating.

Inspirational quotes with Graffiti Word Art Leggings give you enough motivation to get out of bed and get your workout going. It’s the perfect gift for your favorite yoga or workout enthusiast. They come as 100% silk scarves too!

Detailed, exquisite Hand Made Umbrellas make a statement wherever you go, and they’re more than just protecting you from getting wet. Detailed with beautiful colors and unique handles, no two are alike!

Love Tribe Launches New Peanuts Themed Athleisure Collection

Love Tribe Launches New Peanuts Themed Athleisure Collection

No stranger to collaborations, popular juniors label, Love Tribe, has just launched its latest offering of athleisure with a special Peanuts collection featuring classic American cartoon star, Snoopy. SoCal Magazine thinks this line is perfect for back to school, and quite frankly, anything featuring Snoopy and Woodstock works for us anytime of the year. Check out Love Tribe’s official announcement below, and shop the new collection HERE.

    

We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Peanuts Worldwide to launch a new collection of Peanuts-inspired pieces, available now at 250 Macy’s stores, LoveTribe.com and macys.com. Featuring the iconic and lovable Snoopy and Woodstock, our new athleisure collection offers young women comfort and style in these timeless pieces.

“We want girls to feel comfort in the clothes they wear, while having fun, hanging out with friends, lounging around, or being active,” said Bonnie Dogan, Vice President of Sales for Specialty Retailers at Hybrid Apparel. “This new collaboration brings girls that perfect combination of comfort and style, perfect for every day and every casual occasion. By mixing trendy Peanuts prints, inspirational quotes, and fun and flattering silhouettes, we made sure to have something for everyone in this collection.”

Bonnie said it all! We know comfort and style are the keys to satisfying today’s fashionable and active young women. Our new garments do just that and include inspiring and humorous slogans such as “Be Stronger Than Your Excuses,” and “Squad Leader.” We’re also pleased that the dynamic duo, Snoopy and Woodstock, are the two main featured characters in this collection.

“This new line is extremely different from our previous collaborations,” said Dogan. “Peanuts is an absolute classic cartoon that we all have a special place in our hearts for. We are happy to now offer our customers a sporty and athletic collection, versus one that is strictly fashion-based.”

    

#FlashbackFriday: 90’s Nostalgia Comes to Life with Nickelodeon X Love Tribe Collection

#FlashbackFriday: 90’s Nostalgia Comes to Life with Nickelodeon X Love Tribe Collection

Nostalgia hit me heavy when I found out about the latest collaboration between Hybrid Apparel’s line, Love Tribe and Nickelodeon. This new collection is all about taking it back to Millennial childhood by making a nod to 90’s cartoon classics that so many of us grew up on, and personally, I’m loving every single piece! My favorite pieces include characters from hit shows like Rugrats, All That, and Hey Arnold!. You can also find pieces that feature quotes and characters from Clarissa Explains It All, The Ren & Stimpy Show, and SpongeBob SquarePants.

According to the Vice President of Sales for Specialty Retailers of Hybrid Apparel, Bonnie Dogan explained that the collection was actually in the works for a while now. She says,

We have been partners with Nickelodeon for a long time, building an incredible relationship together. We love their creativity, and combining their vision with ours was the perfect recipe for an inspiring unique apparel line. There is nothing better then remembering the past, and the things we watched and loved while growing up.

The Nickelodeon collection a retro style for fashionable millennial women. The garments possess a “throwback” feel, having been made with materials such as terry cloth and jersey, and include trendy slogans such as “Trust Me, I’m a Rugrat,” featuring Chucky Finster from Rugrats and “Haters Gonna Hate,” featuring Arnold from Hey Arnold!.

Love Tribe X Nickelodeon has officially launched this week in stores and online at Macys.com, but the line will officially kick off nationwide with a special event at Macy’s Herald Square in New York at 2:00 pm on August 26, 2017.

Madmen’s Costume Designer – Janie Bryant

JanieBryantWe all have our favorite characters on a TV show. We love the way they look, talk, the way they behave, and sometimes we want to emulate what they wear. This is why the costume designer of a TV show makes an impact on the fashion world. Some people watch certain TV shows for the clothing and style alone. The clothes can even take on personality in a show, and become a crucial part of the story and the development of the characters.

TV shows afford the costume designer greater opportunities than a movie, as the designer has to build a wardrobe for an ongoing character in an ever-changing climate. And the scope is on a larger scale – in a TV show you have to dress women, men, children, of all socioeconomic backgrounds, and all different body types.

Did you love the 50’s style of Madmen? Or the colorful look of Telenovela? Well, then meet Janie Bryant, an Emmy award winning costume designer. Bryant is well known for her work on Madmen, Deadwood, Telenovela, and she is currently working on an Amazon pilot called “The Last Tycoon”.

Did you always want to be a costume designer?

I actually studied fashion design and always wanted to be a fashion designer. When I moved to NYC after I graduated from college, I met a lot of people in the film industry, and I met a costume designer at a party. That was my first introduction to costume design as a career.

What’s the best part about being a costume designer?

I love to create characters visually through costume design. I also especially love period costume design; it’s about transporting the actors and audience into a different time and creating an entire world.Madmen

What’s the hardest part about being a costume designer?

I find that the creative process, while being exciting and fun, is also hard and it can be painstaking to get that amazing end result.

Who have been your favorite characters to dress?

The list is long and for many different reasons. And so much has to do with what is happening in the script. For Mad Men specifically, I love all the female characters. Betty, Megan, Trudy, Jane and Joan!

Which of your characters do you think you most dress like?

Megan for sure.

Which TV shows/movies did you watch for the clothes when you were starting out?

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been obsessed with old movies. I have many, many favorites like The Women, Gone With The Wind, My Fair Lady, Gi Gi, An American in Paris, Wuthering Heights, Guys and Dolls, Sound of Music, Grease, On the Town, To Catch a Thief, High Society, and many more. I’ve seen them all a thousand times.

I hear you are writing a book. Can you tell us more about that?

My book is called The Fashion File and it’s available for sale.

JanieBryantAnything else you’d like to add? 

I’m working with Hartmann Luggage as a brand ambassador and plan to do a design collaboration with them in the future. It’s a brand I love and grew up with. I just completed the first season of the NBC show starring Eva Longoria, called Telenovela. Working with Eva and the cast was such fun, and I loved designing the glamorous gowns and gorgeous heels (available on Shoes of Prey).  I’m also just now working on the new AMAZON pilot The Last Tycoon, which should be amazing. Lots of exciting things ahead.
