Lover seems an appropriate name for a label that specializes in strong, powerful femininity. Working in sheer fabrics and lace for the last few seasons, Lover’s collections are reminiscent of both Stella McCartney and Valentino — not a bad comparison by any means. Want something to love?

MAD RESPECT: Bethany Mayer
If you’ve ever swung through the Hamptons the last 2 years, you would’ve spotted most cool chicks wearing some long sexy flowy gauze dress or shirt with fluorescent details. Bethany Mayer’s signature pieces are traditionally sold at Montauk’s Surf Lodge or on her online shop at TheSurfBazaar.com (expect a new resort collection with strong prints). Recently, she just expanded the collection to include beach accessories, jewelry, sunglasses, and even collaborations on surf board fins. The girl is on a creative streak! In between beach breaks, we asked Bethany a few questions about what gets her motivated.
Jauretsi: What is your manifesto for life?
Bethany Mayer: I strive for a better quality of life in everything I do!
J: Tell us your top 3 list of items you fiend for when searching through eBay?
BM: Chanel clutches 
Vintage convertible cars
Clothing hangers
J: Name your Summer Inspiration songs for these coming months.
BM: Anything on the new Daft Punk Album, and Roy Ayers’ “Everybody Loves the Sunshine.”

Suspended 
Though with a pair of today’s fitted, well-tailored trousers, suspenders seem hardly necessary, they sure do make a fine accessory for a man (or a woman, really). We love this shot of Pharrell Williams, sporting a relaxed, hard-day’s-work look, suspenders hung loosely about his legs. The suspenders seen here are certainly traditional, but if you want to spice things up a bit, the options out there right now run the gamut. Check out these Navy Paisley Print Braces by Topman or these classic Chase Stripe Suspenders by Trafalgar. Lo and behold, eBay had its own funky options, like this unisex set in a geometric orange pattern.

Alexander Wang Takes Over Balenciaga
By Jauretsi
This week, Alexander Wang will be taking the reigns of the respected fashion house started by a Basque designer in 1918. Wang will serve as the new creative director, which was freshly announced by WWD. The PPR-owned fashion house selected Wang to replace the highly acclaimed Nicolas Ghesquière (who had his final day at the house last week). Wow. The game is getting interesting.
Wang has extremely enormous shoes to fill, but the young designer (almost 30 years old) has proved to manage his own fashion house with grace and aplomb. The trick will be for Wang to grow Balenciaga while nurturing his own line, too. We’re counting the days until we see Wang’s first Balenciaga collection. No doubt that Ghesquière will be moving on to finer challenges in his own illustrious career. Our eyes are equally focused on both genius minds. Let the games begin.
