Donna Karan‘s Fall/Winter 2010 collection that was shown on the runway yesterday reminded me a little of her apartment. It was mostly black with a little white and color thrown in for good measure. What’s that line about sticking with what you know? The fabulous textured coats make me wish they were in the stores […]

More Chic Advertising

01 . 25 . 10

Looks like chic advertising isn’t just for the girls. Dunhill snapped British actor Jude Law for their Spring/Summer 2009 advertising campaign. So it’s a year old, I still have boys on the brain from yesterday’s post and who doesn’t enjoy a little man candy on a Monday morning! I’d much rather look at him than […]

Chic Advertising

I think it’s funny that Sophia Coppola’s line for Louis Vuitton debuted in March of last year and I’m just now noticing the advertising! I’ve seen a few images here and there and just found all the rest. I love how they don’t hit you over the head with the product. I wish all advertisements […]

Love Story author Erich Segal died this past Sunday. He wrote the rich boy falls in love with a poor girl novel while as a professor at Harvard. The movie version is one of the all time great tear jerkers. Just hearing the Henry Mancini score makes me want to cry! Sniff sniff. Although, it […]

A Chat with Peter Som

09 . 22 . 09

A few weeks ago, I saw fashion designer Peter Som entering the D&D Building as I was leaving. Of course my curiosity was piqued. What was he doing there? Was he looking for inspiration for his upcoming fashion show? Was he redecorating his apartment? Luckily, my upholsterer, Matthew Haly, also happens to be Peter’s upholsterer […]

I love that the Sundance Channel acknowledges fashion week by scheduling fashionable films each spring and fall. This season, they kick off the week on September 9th with the documentary Somebody Told Me About…Carla Bruni. It started off as just a film about a model who makes a success of a singing career but turned […]

It was hot today in New York. Like Africa hot. But for me it’s too little too late. I’m over summer and have moved onto pre-fall. The new clothes are in the stores here and I’ve already been picking out what I want to buy for New York and my trip to Paris. There are […]

The Fashion Issue

08 . 03 . 09

I think my favorite month for magazines has to be September since they are all devoted to fashion. In the case of Elle Decor, we get to peek into the stylish homes of some of the top fashion designers and executives. The living room above belongs to Robert Duffy, the President of Marc Jacobs International […]

I will be out at meetings and appointments the entire day so I am leaving you with photos from fashion designer Derek Lam‘s chic Soho loft recently published in Bazaar. It’s close to his soon to open new boutique on Crosby Street which I can’t wait to check out. I’ve always had an affinity for […]

I’ve been hearing nothing but good things about the stylish new documentary Valentino: The Last Emperor and now it’s finally about to make it’s theatrical debut this Wednesday, March 18th in select cities. Andre Leon Tally, the style scribe and editor at large of Vogue will be on hand at the Film Forum March 19th […]

Fashion and Design

02 . 22 . 09

The award for the most literal pairing of fashion and design came from Bryan Bradley the designer of Tuleh who showed his Fall 2009 collection in the Roubini Casa showroom at the New York Design Center where he is also debuting a new line of rugs. Tuleh is known for beautiful prints and feminine silhouettes […]

While Derek Lam may have been influence by 20th-century interiors, Carolina Herrera said that she was influenced by 18th-century architectural details. These took shape as belts, bag straps, hair accessories and shoes all fabricated in copper. There was no mood board photo so I don’t know exactly where she found this inspiration so I’ve been […]

Interiors

02 . 18 . 09

My favorite part of fashion week is finding out the inspiration behind each designer’s collection. This year, Derek Lam said his colors and textures were inspired by interiors and most specifically, those of Yves Saint Laurent, while the mood was inspired by the 1958 film Ascenseur pour l’échafaud by Louis Malle. C’est Magnifique! Mood board […]

Fashion is Everywhere

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Coco Chanel This is one of my favorite quotes because I always think the same can be said of art and design. Learn more […]

C’est Magnifique!

09 . 11 . 08

Last night, I had the privilege of attending a little soiree at the showroom of Belgium born fashion designer Jonathan Riss who’s label is named Jay Ahr, after the phonetic pronunciation of his initials. Most of the guests were speaking en français since Mr. Riss also works and has a showroom in Paris. The most […]

Perfect Summer Dress!

07 . 26 . 08

I’m not the only person who thinks the Sophie Dress from Club Monaco is the perfect summer dress since the black version pretty much sold out everywhere. Luckily, I managed to snag the white and taupe versions. Paired with a wide belt and sandals, the dress is perfect for work or play. Get one before […]

Fashionable Films

03 . 28 . 08

My post about the new movie Flawless brought up a great conversation about other films with fabulous fashions, some that are classics and some that might be considered cult classics. Here is a partial list of my favorite fashionable films, the first being Breakfast at Tiffany’s of course. But while everyone loves the little black […]
