Instead of citing an artist as inpsiration as is usually the case, Carolina Herrera looked to the great out doors for her Fall 2008 collection. There were tweeds and windowpane plaids, fur and feathers, as well as her signature evening dresses. The collection was beautiful but perhaps a bit overstyled. The chapeaux made the models […]

Tonne Times Two

02 . 05 . 08

I don’t usually like repeating photos or stories but I recently found the rest of the missing pages from September 2001 Vogue magazine article about the beautiful townhouse belonging to Tonne Goodman and her family. Tonne used to model and has worked at Vogue for many years and also has immpecible taste. I love her […]

Vera Wang at Bobo

02 . 01 . 08

Vera Wang staged her first runway show for her less expensive Lavender Label collection at the chic new hotspot Bobo, remember the one with the chic black chairs, and I must say, it was the perfect backdrop to the vintage inspired looking pieces. Wang explained that the Lavender line’s color palate was inspired by the […]

I know you all love the design posts but you’re going to have to sit through a few fashion related posts since it’s fashion week and that’s all anyone can think about in New York. Who cares if there is a recession and no one can afford to buy anything new, we can all look […]

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I love the photography of François Halard so I was very excited when I opened my February 2008 issue of Vogue to find the most amazing article about his home in Arles, France and his loft in New York, with photography of course by Monsieur Halard. I’ve posted […]

One of the newest hot spots in New York right now is a little gem of a restaurant called Bobo. I’ve been hearing about it everywhere and even the February 2008 issue of Domino has given them a shout out. (Don’t worry, my post won’t ruin it for you. They use different photos.) It’s comfortable […]

Members Only

12 . 07 . 07

I had a fun evening at Soho House recently and although it looked like they might have relaxed the membership standards just a bit, I was surprised at how great the place still looks after four years. The interiors created by Ilse Crawford are modern and elegant and yet at the same time have that […]

Chic at Aquavit

10 . 10 . 07

After I posted about Stockholm last week, it was funny to open my November issue of House and Garden magazine and see a profile of Marcus Samuelsson, the chef and co-owner of the fabulous Scandinavian restaurant in New York, Aquavit. Marcus’ life story is almost as interesting as his cuisine. He was born in Ethiopia […]

I just received this interesting email from the fine folks over at The Charlotte Moss Townhouse. It’s entirely too hot in New York for me to even think about Christmas shopping yet but it’s never too hot to buy clothes. I may have to take a walk over and check out the new dresses!

In case you happen to be in New York, you might want to check out the International Art + Design Fair where specialists in 20th century and contemporary furniture, sculpture, jewellery, photography, painting, carpets and textiles, ceramics, glass, Far Eastern art and objects and other areas of design from 1900-2007 present their wares. “With the […]

You Are Where You Eat

09 . 29 . 07

There are two different types of restaurants in New York, there is the one kind where you don’t care where it is or what it looks like because the food is unbelievably good and the other is where you go to see and be seen. The Waverly Inn is of the latter type. I usually […]

Chic and the City

09 . 20 . 07

It’s pretty much an unwritten rule that New Yorkers do not stare at celebrites or ask them for autographs. We don’t even blink when we see a movie being shot as we walk by. That’s just how it is. But yesterday, I almost had a total freak out when I saw Sarah Jessica Parker walk […]

I Heart Gilles Mendel

09 . 13 . 07

A little while back, I saw two small photos of bachelor Gilles Mendel’s apartment and was dying to see more. Luckily for me, the October 2007 issue of Elle Decor has a whole spread dedicated to the designer and CEO of J. Mendel, his family’s company that was founded in 1870. Talk about chic! J. […]

I can’t tell you how much I love Loeffler Randall shoes. Every season, I check out their line sheets and wish I could buy every pair. In a city where everyone is wearing the same old Louboutins, they area a breath of fresh air. The married designing duo, Jessie Randall and Brian Murphy, have had […]

Tonne Tonne Tonne

09 . 10 . 07

I thought I would continue the “I hate them because their homes are beautiful” theme that has taken over my coverage of the domiciles of the stylish during fashion week with the townhouse of Tonne Goodman and her family. For those of you who don’t know, Tonne is a former model and current fashion director […]

Even though Valentino doesn’t show during New York fashion week, he’s still a huge presence in the city and his Director of Public Relations, Carlos Souza has an apartment here. If you think it was easy to hate Diane von Furstenberg for her amazing homes, then you’re really going to hate Carlos Souza! This native […]
