Grace Kelly Loved to Travel
By Jauretsi
Grace Kelly was the epitome of a jet-setter. Here she is, soaking the rays while filming To Catch a Thief on the luxurious shores of Monaco. If you’re living in cold parts of the US, it’s best to plot a warm trip for yourself and run for the sun this holiday season. Luckily, eBay’s Holiday Collection 2012, which is officially available today, offers an array of travel items, including Billy Reid’s set of sensible totes, bags, and jacket bags. The whole Billy Reid collection can be viewed here, along with additional recommended items for an island escape. To view individual photos of the entire collection, including pieces from our other six designers (Fallon, Chris Benz, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan, and Tibi), visit here. Get these limited edition items while they’re hot. We expect these very affordable pieces to disappear before you get on that airplane heading south. AVAILABLE NOW!

Marilyn Loved Bling
By Jauretsi
To Marilyn, diamonds were “a girl’s best friend”. Today, in a more conscious world, we think Marilyn would have substituted her jewels for cute imitations, such as these adorable Fallon earrings, part of the eBay Holiday Collection 2012. The clock is ticking. There are only 3 days left before these gems are released on Monday, November 12th via the Fashion Vault page on eBay. In addition to Fallon, eBay collaborated with Billy Reid, Chris Benz, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan, and Tibi. You can check out product shots from our seven designers here, to see what’s in store. Another female icon of the moment, Katie Holmes, was actually spotted on New York streets walking with Steven Alan’s iPad case from this same capsule collection, seen here on InStyle. 
If you’ve fallen in love with any one of the pieces, here’s a little secret. eBay will be having a 1 day sale for the early birds. If you download the eBay Fashion App this weekend, you’ll be invited to scoop up any of the seven designers on Sunday, a day before the sale goes online Monday morning. Did we mention one of our designers, Chris Benz, got lots of love this week during election night? Get yourself to these collector items first.

Spikes are Golden
By Jauretsi
Spikes are a fashion accessory long associated with rebellion — from the punk movement to dark underground clubs. A bevy of high-end designers — everyone from Christian Louboutin to Alice Temperley — have taken a gander at the spike movement, thereby bringing the trend out into the bright lights.
Fallon has taken a shot at “spike love” with her eBay Holiday Collection 2012, a limited edition collection of jewelry available on November 12th. Fallon (one of our seven designers) introduces a stellar line of gold spike pieces (pictured above) to make the jaw drop. To view the whole collection, visit eBay Holiday Collection 2012 products.

Fallon for eBay Holiday Collection

By Jauretsi

I’m already waiting with bated breath for Fallon’s eBay Holiday Capsule Collection. Designer Dana Lorenz makes pieces that employ two of my favorite things: spikes and gold. Here’s a little stroll through her world as she discusses her inspirations behind this charming collection, available November 12th on eBay. In the meantime, check out our past Q&A with Dana and read how she once nabbed a pair of vintage navy Hermes penny loafers on eBay. Score!

eBay Holiday Capsule Collection Designer: Fallon 
Dana Lorenz is the final Designer in our series of eBay Holiday Designers with her exclusive collection to be sold this November 12, 2012 on eBay. Other Designers in the collection include Steven Alan, Billy Reid, Ruffian, Chris Benz, Tibi, and Jonathan Adler. Dana describes her line as “inspired by hard-edges, romance, and history”. If you haven’t met this lovable woman, get to know her on Hulu’s 6 part series, The Fashion Fund, which follows 10 American Designers receiving the coveted Vogue Fashion Fund. We asked her a few questions and learned a few things, including her tug of war with a close friend over a Chanel bag on eBay. 
Jauretsi: If you had to describe a day in the life of your customer, how would they spend the day ideally?
Dana Lorenz: I see the FALLON woman as [MORE] one that works hard, plays hard, and rewards herself. However, ideally, she would have the day off, and would spend it shopping with friends, hitting a new exhibit at a museum, and then off to dinner and drinks with people she loves.
Q: When did you first realize you wanted to become a designer?
I seized a once in a lifetime opportunity and took advantage of a combination of good timing and a little bit of luck and talent. I was unemployed, making pieces as a personal endeavor for me and my friends, when I happened upon a runway collaboration. Barneys and Vogue called and it has been non-stop since.
Q: Do you have a specific “aha find” on eBay? What was the item?
A pair of vintage navy Hermes penny loafers. Also, the time my good friend and I unknowingly kept outbidding each other on the same vintage forest green Chanel bag made for some laughs!
Q: What are your top 3 fav holiday movies?
Auntie Mame, Love Actually, Christmas Vacation
Q: In terms of online searches, what do you recommend is the most savvy thing or genre to search for on eBay?
I just love scouring for furniture and decor on eBay. I have all my key-words stored so that the right “look” pops up with ease. Anything French Deco or Dorothy Draper-esque is a no-brainer!
Q: What is your favorite thing about 2012 so far?
We launched a dog collection of collars and leashes from FALLON, called “FALLON best friend”, to raves from all of my fashion friends with pups. Also, anyone that knows me is aware of my obsession with my 2 long-haired miniature dachshunds, Blitz and Benson. The collection will be available at Barneys in September.
Q: What is your “go to” get away spot for the holidays? What essential items do you pack in your bags on that escape end of year?
Why “get away”? There is nothing more inspiring and romantic than New York City when it snows.

Christmas in July with our eBay Holiday Designers
By Jauretsi
This week, eBay finally revealed the new product freshly announced last week with a party for friends and family in the media and designer world. The exclusive eBay Holiday Collective event revealed product the room adorned with wooden reindeers, white lights, and clever displays. “We love Christmas in July!” gushed Ruffian, one of the Collective designers. We do too, so why not get into the cheer early? I was lucky enough to DJ the event spinning classics like Carla Thomas’ “Gee Whiz its Christmas” while the team of designers — Chris Benz, Tibi, Steven Alan, Ruffian, Billy Reid, Jonathan Adler and Fallon— worked the room and dipped into the Peppermint eclairs and Gingerbread Chocolate Macaroons from Dominique Ansel Bakery. It was a night of toasting glasses and [MORE] checking out fine goods. 
For just a few hours on Wednesday night, we all forgot about the summer heat wave sizzling outside the Fashion District doors. Speaking of supporting the Fashion District, you’ll be happy to know that 100% of our collection was created in the US. The Limited Edition exclusive Capsule Collection drops on eBay November 12, 2012, so set your watches. Til then, start making your wish lists!

Introducing Seven Designers for eBay’s First Holiday Capsule Collection
"I am obsessed with eBay" says Jonathan Adler, one of the seven designers we’re obsessed with too, so we created a unique capsule collection to be sold exclusively on eBay this Holiday season. Today we’re proud to announce this group collaboration, a first for the eBay family. Here’s the dream team (Top left, clock-wise): Ruffian, Chris Benz, Billy Reid, Tibi, Jonathan Adler, Fallon and Steven Alan. 
There is a total of 40+ items in the collection, to be sold at a “Buy it Now” fixed price (instead of auction pricing). The best part is all items are under $100. Did we mention free… [MORE] shipping for US and International? Keep reading The Inside Source the next two weeks as we’ll be asking each designer about their Holiday inspirations and to show us a peek at their unique goodies. Why these seven designers? It seems each one has their own particular love affair with the eBay closet.
"I’m an avid eBay shopper" says Billy Reid who dips into the vast site to buy pretty things for his home. The designer duo Ruffian use the site as a design resource to develop their "virtual fashion archive". Then there’s Steven Alan. "I’ve always been crazy about tech stuff" gushes Alan, who uses eBay for much different reasons. Back in 1996, Steven was combing eBay for the first ever flip phone, Motorola’s Star TAC. "I was obsessing over it" confesses Steven. There goes that word again. OBSESS. Aww, we feel the same way about each one of them.
Keep your eyes peeled on November 12, 2012, when the Collection drops on eBay. This is just the beginning of a series of Holiday love you’ll see from this creative collective. Stay tuned for more.
