Charleston Fashion Week 2012: Gwynn’s Fashion at its Finest!

The 2012 Charleston Fashion Week has finally come to a close and our heads are still spinning from the excitement, high-energy and general buzz surrounding the event.

Marshall’s Musings: Shopping Goes Live at Gwynn’s

E-Commerce has completely revolutionized the way shoppers are finding their favorite items. It has made the global fashion industry more approachable and definitely given consumers at-your-fingertip access to their favorite brands. At Gwynn’s of Mt. Pleasant, we have always been a favorite location for giving our customers a very tailored, personal shopping experience. So, in this age of online shopping, how do we maintain our hands-on approach to customer service? Because our inventory fluctuates so often and we really investigate which items will resonate best with our clientele, straight e-commerce never felt like the right fit. Instead, we’ve taken online [...]

Gwynn’s Fashion Feature: Brunello Cucinelli – Where Luxury Meets Comfort

Brunello Cucinelli, a name synonymous with luxury and style, is, in our opinion, a label that is made for the stylish Charleston man. The clothing combines comfort with elegance, creating a look that says indulgence without trying too hard.   The fashion brand is named for the man behind the designs – Mr. Cucinelli’s first foray into fashion was in 1978, when he commissioned textile workers from his native region of Umbria, Italy, to knit him a small batch of neon cashmere sweaters. He has since muted his designs to a more neutral palette, and has built a small empire [...]

Entering its fifth year, Charleston Fashion Week has become one of the hottest celebrations of fashion and design in the country.

Marshall’s Musings: Hollywood Award Season Wrap-Up

With the closing of last night’s 3+ hour-long Academy Awards, another season of red carpet extravaganza has come and gone. All in all, I feel that there were some really spectacular looks this year and the red carpet has once again fully embraced glitz and glamour – the overall feel from the entire awards season was less avant-garde and more Old Hollywood. Let’s take a look at some of the more outstanding looks from this year. Tom Cruise really hit on two of my favorite trends in menswear at last night’s Oscar celebration: navy tuxedos and peak lapels. He looks [...]

Attention, ladies. Gwynn’s of Mt. Pleasant is about to go French. French couture, that is.

Since 2000, Pantone has been declaring its “Color of the Year,” which is meant to be a representation of the hue that will define our mood for the year. That color for 2012 is Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, which provides the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.  “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush [...]
