Last week, I was surprised by an email from Marcelo Bengoechea who I hadn’t heard from since 2009 when I first posted about the woven photographs by his late brother Fernando Bengoechea. He had revived the work started by his photographer brother who died in the devastating Tsunami that hit the Indian Ocean in December […]

‘Tis Near Halloween

When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers, ‘tis near Halloween. – Author unknown

I think we all know that fashion designers also have great interior design style and Pierre Hardy is no different. His duplex apartment in the Marais area of Paris just featured in the WSJ is mostly black and white but is definitely not boring. “Black is not a choice because I find it more beautiful than […]

Porter magazine just announced today that Daria Werbowy will grace different two versions of their fall 2015 issue. It won’t be out until next week so until then, I’m going back to look at the beautiful photos that Mikael Jansson shot of her in Sweden for Interview magazine. Even though she’s a tall model with […]

New York is a wet and slushy mess today.  I thank my lucky stars that my morning commute is from my bed to my desk.  I still can’t completely escape the grey skies and black and white landscape though.  Here’s how it’s inspiring me today.  Place de la Madeleine – Rue de la Paix Paris […]

Outlined

10 . 15 . 13

Not even sure how to explain this post other some photos that I find terribly inspiring that all seem to have a bit of black outlining something neutral. Although, I think Gisele’s coat from H&M is actually navy blue but you get the idea. I’m just not feeling for color these days.  Enjoy.   Don’t […]

Some of you have criticized me for not giving you enough of a heads up as to when the WSJ magazine is going to be published.  The new issue with Woody Allen on the cover will be included in the Saturday, June 29th issue of the Wall Street Journal newspaper.  Now that you have been […]

Once again, I know it’s spring and I’m supposed to be all about color but I am still being inspired by black and white.  I mean, aren’t the black and white striped window treatments in the Milestone Hotel in London above amazing?  How could you not be inspired by them.  Enjoy!

Red seems to be popping up in every collection for fall 2013 and Trina Turk was no exception.  According to the show notes ” Trina Turk’s fall 2013 collection signals a distinct brand evolution as she focuses on the sleek and chic style of California today. Her signature west coast optimism has been infused with […]

Stripe it Rich

02 . 05 . 13

Now that the Fall 2013 shows are almost upon us, I wonder what will prevail as a predominant theme.  For Spring 2013, it was lots of black and white and stripes.  I actually started a black and white stripes folder of images but never used them. It the perfect jumping off point for this post […]

Simplicity

01 . 16 . 13

Fashion week is coming up soon and I’m not looking forward to all the crazy colorful street style characters looking for attention.  Right now, I’m inspired by a return to black and white simplicity (with a little grey thrown in as usual).  That’s not to say I’m anti-color but I like it used as an […]

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I braved the crowded to check out the new Picasso Black and White exhibition at the Guggenheim museum. While it’s not as dynamic or inspiring as some of the colorful Picasso exhibitions at the Gagosian galleries recently, Picasso’s work is amazing in any color. The white spiral gallery at the Guggenheim […]
