Karla Colletto x DESIGN ARMY collab–video!

Escándalo: a Cruise 2014 Fashion Film by Karla Colletto from Karla Colletto on Vimeo.

Robin Givhan, recently back (yay!) in a full-time role at The Washington Post reporting on fashion (“as a business, as a cultural institution, and as pure pleasure”) has a great piece about the design collaboration between Virginia-based swimwear designer/line Karla Colletto and District-based creative agency DESIGN ARMY.

Since it came out, I have been in love with this playful, stylish video the duo collaborated on for line’s Cruise 2014 line–and with summer here in full force, what better time to share.

Katy Perry is in D.C. RIGHT NOW, taking adorable photos like the one above posted on her Facebook page. She’s in town for shows at Verizon Center and while here will no doubt visit her portrait by artist Will Cotton, newly on view at the National Portrait Gallery (click over to RackedDC for a peek).

Love her look? Visit any number of area vintage stores like Treasury (14th Street), Via Gypset (Woodley Park) or search Etsy for vintage brocade shift dresses. I’m digging this top-and-bottom set and this paisley print number. Replicate her white platform sandals with some chunky sandals from local shop ANTHOM.

The Politics of Fashion: D.C. Unboxed is a film about fashion and D.C. I make an appearance (no idea what I said; hopefully it’s somewhat intelligent). It premiered earlier this month at Mazza Gallerie and will screen next week at E Street Cinema. Get your tickets (and check out the trailer) here.

…and speaking of movies, the Angelika Po-Up at Union Market opens this weekend. Read more about the Angelika here, but essentially, the original arthouse opened in 1989 in New York and before we know it, we’ll have our own as Union Market continues to expand into a fully formed destination for food, shopping, and entertainment. Click here to learn about showtimes this weekend and discounts & deals.

D.C. is investing in public art.

I feel a little weird saying this, but I need a witness here: Cindy Crawford’s kids are super hot.

Building and sustaining a brand: Mashable takes a look at GAP.
