Berlin-based I Love You magazine started life as a fashionable blog, but its print reincarnation has but all the style and substance of the most well-respected glossy. Thematically tackling life’s big topics–diet, ego, motherhood–in a smart, aesthetically pleasing way, I Love You offers a refreshing alternative to the clichéd editorial that still dominates newsstands. Phoebe Lovatt spoke to Editor-in-Chief Christiane Boerdner to find out how she goes about creating “the type of magazine that women love and at the same time a magazine that loves women.”
This NYFW had something for everyone: Are you a bodycon girl? Or do you prefer trousers? Either way, the Spring 2014 collections at New York Fashion Week had you in mind. The best part about this season (we think) is the texture overload. Indulge in an elegant silk or strut your stuff in some tight-ass leather, or wear them both at once: juxtaposition is as in as Miley was pre-VMAs. The color palette is equally all over the place (in a good way). Many collections favored greyscale tones to complement their menswear aesthetic, while our favorite color trends were baby pink and bright tangerine orange, which actually looked awesome together. Below we have collected our favorite looks from the designers at NYFW SS14, take a peek and get inspired!

Meet Pia Mia Perez. She’s cute as could be, got a voice to rival any pop star, and, get this, is really, actually from Guam. Seriously. She did double-duty for us and recorded an original video cover of Rihanna’s “Half Of Me,” then humored us by answering our questions on everything from how to beat the heat this festival season to what quote keeps her motivated so very far from home.
Spring’s moody days always toy with our wanderlusting hearts and wardrobes, having to bounce between bundling up and a taste of tropical paradise. Maybe we can’t shed off all of our layers just yet, but at least crop tops give us a hint of what’s to come.
The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting longer–which means it’s time to get your party on.
