The New York Runway Report: Fall 2012

Model 49The New York fashion verdict is in. Your grandmother’s closet will be at the top of your shopping list next fall, with a retro mix of florals and lace, knit tweeds and, yes, shawls making the sartorial cut. Chic sportsmanship will be of importance as well, especially when channeling the great outdoors or reveling in the new take on military. Travel the globe in style with your arsenal of luxe essentials — fur accents and elegant embroidery required. And a host of cool options in the way of black leather or all-white means there will definitely be something for everyone.


Slightly rumpled and eccentrically layered but completely appropriate for the British Parliament, the fall runways were a brilliant mash-up of ladylike fashion. Marc Jacobs sent his girls down the runway in exaggerated shapes and cartoon-size accessories. Fuzzy sweaters, loopy crochet shawls and knubby tweeds at Oscar de la Renta and Tory Burch lent a new twist to Park Avenue dressing — granny chic, indeed.   Read more: New York Fashion Week Fall 2012 Trend Report - Runway Fall Fashion Trends 2012 - Harper's BAZAAR

The Grey Hair Pill

Model 47L’Oreal made headlines when they revealed they are developing a pill that will prevent grey hair, It is still in the research phase and years from release, but it sounds like great news for the future. The catch is that you would have to take this pill every day for the rest of your life, or at least until you no longer care about having grey hair. And another point is that this pill may not reverse existing grey hair. There are actually quite a lot of road blocks ahead before L’Oreal has a proof positive anti-greying pill, but this is a huge benchmark in the grey hair research.

Many are questioning the claims of L’Oreal and think they jumped the gun when there are still years of research before they can release the pill, but we know how long it takes and the many phases of research. Having a proof of concept is a huge step in any research project. Several years ago, after Isaac Bracha (President of Hair & Compounds, Inc.) received his training in Human Hair/Cosmetics Interactions Fundamentals and Methodology from Princeton, he brought back news of several research projects happening at the university. One project he told us about was developing a drug for preventing grey hair – this was in 1997! At that time, it seemed as fantastical as the project for manipulating melanin pigment to change the hair color without chemical oxidation applications. Perhaps one day there will be a pill to make one a red head or a blond!
