As the girls of the season, the duo Lineisy Montero and Mica Arganaraz star in the new Chanel’s spring summer 16 advertising campaign, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by Carine Roitfeld. Both models wear the collection around several locations in New York City. At StyleCartel, we are pretty happy admiring the beauty of the Dominican Republic native model Lineisy; from her debut on Prada’s runway to today. The 19-year-old is one of the hottest models in the industry, and one of the most in demand. With the favourite Miss Arganaraz (from Argentina) they continue to amaze featuring colorful dresses from the Chanel’s spring summer 16 collection and print scarves tied around their necks. Karl took up the collection in the cloudy airs through the aircraft windows. Remember the Terminal set at Le Grand Palais during the SS16 show.

You’d be darned to find a day of the year as prestigious as the first Monday of May. First held in 1948, the Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, was founded to encourage donations from New York’s high society and today the most recognisable faces from fashion, art, music and film gather to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and commemorate the opening of the museums latest exhibition. Founded by Eleanor Lambert, Anna Wintour has taken reign of the event since 1995, raising almost $175 million and enlisting the most prominent names to co-chair the events including the likes of Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Marc Jacobs and Gisele Bundchen. The 2018 Met Gala, which also marks the 70th anniversary of the soiree will be co-chaired by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace and sponsors include Apple, Condé Nast, Farfetch, H&M, Maison Valentino and Warner Bros.

The 80s were a fabulous time in fashion. Across the fashion capitals, structured shoulders, bodysuits and sequins were amongst some of the biggest and wildest trends commanding centre stage. While all of that was happening, somewhere, under the warm Californian sun, Shawn Stüssy was somewhere printing t shirts with the same signature that appeared on his surfboards. Probably little did he know that decades later his printed trademark signature on simple graphic tees would decades later play a part in streetwear becoming one of the most lucrative fashion business models of the 21st century.
