Behind The Scenes: Luca Ruca

Happy Monday kiddos! Or should we say snow day? Yeah, it’s too cold for real life today so let’s get cozy and talk shop. Here’s a little behind the scenes action to keep you warm.

We recently shot the lookbook for Luca Ruca, a Singapore-based clothing store. It was a frigid and busy day dressed in winds that could freeze you into a popsicle, but we huddled together in layers of coats and cameras and it was a wonderful shoot. We drove all around Lower Manhattan scouting out beautiful backgrounds for our beautiful model, Lauren. It may have been as cold as a snowball out but she was such a pretty trooper and we couldn’t have asked for a better model!

Luca Ruca is a great place for all you working girls out there. They have really cute business friendly stuff that will totally brighten up your 9-5. And since they’re not totally business oriented it can be a one stop shop for work and play! Imagine having the perfect dresses for work and the perfect shirts for play all for crazy reasonable prices. We know you’re intrigued, so go take a look at LucaRuca.com .

Oh, and just a little Klickpicks style tip: definitely add a cute pair of tights and a coat to your brand new Luca Ruca outfit. Just ask Lauren, she can vouch for us.

Legend Lost: Vince Camuto

VINCE CAMUTO

(1936-2015)

We are so saddened by the passing of shoe guru Vince Camuto.  He was a legend in the fashion industry with an unparalleled style and creative vision that touched many of our hearts. He will be greatly missed.

Camuto founded the renowned shoe mecca Nine West almost forty years ago, making his company a staple in the shoe wearing industry. He expanded his business over the years and made a wonderful name for himself – eventually creating his own high end brand of shoes simply titled, Vince Camuto. While leading a highly successful career, Mr. Camuto also remained active in many charitable foundations – all the while creating timelessly beautiful shoes that will forever hold  a special place in our closets.

Any death is a shock to the system, but Klickpicks likes to stay positive. In his honor, the KP team will be sporting our favorite Vince Camuto pair  tomorrow as homage to the fashion genius.

.  Rest easy, Mr. Camuto. Every step we take reminds us how lucky we were to have you here.
