La Rentrée or the reentry period after summer is my favorite time of year because it means that life begins again in earnest in New York. Usually, fashion week kicks off with big events and then the fashion shows start. In the following weeks, there are press previews, lunches, design events, cocktail parties, art exhibitions, […]

I’ll admit that it felt like this summer flew by but I’m still very ready for la rentrée, which is what the French call the reentry after their August holidays. I can’t wait for sweater weather, leaf peeping, and fall events like the Lee Radziwill auction at Christie’s in October. If you’re not excited for […]

The September magazines always feature beautiful fashions but there is nothing I love more when they include gorgeous interiors. Such is the case with C’est Chic from British Vogue where model Rebecca Leigh Longendyke was styled by Jane How and photographed by Zoe Ghertner at Château de Champlâtreux about an hour north of Paris. Château […]

I’ve always loved the French phrase la rentrée which means the reentry. It encompasses back to school and back to work as everyone returns from their August holidays and tries to get back on track. They’ve already come back but as Americans go back to school and work after this long Labor Day weekend, it’s […]

La Rentrée

La rentrée is a French phrase used in September that is the equivalent of our ‘back to school” sentiment but it also refers to everyone returning home from their August vacation and resuming their normal routine. If I were hair stylist Frederic Fekkai, I would never return from the gorgeous estate he shares with his family […]

My favorite seasonal quote is the one from The Great Gatsby below, “life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” While autumn doesn’t officially start until next week, it has gotten crisp in New York. Not only is everyone happy to no longer be sweating but they are also happy to […]

Shine On Harvest Moon

09 . 19 . 13

The full moon overnight Wednesday into Thursday is the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox. Folklore called it the Harvest Moon since so many crops would be harvested around this time. That got me thinking about wheat which is a symbol of bountiful harvest and prosperity. Even though everyone in […]

Ode to Autumn

Harper’s Bazaar Executive Editor Laura Brown tweeted yesterday, “Summer, I moved on emotionally weeks ago.” I couldn’t agree more.  I’m ready for crisp, cool weather, cashmere sweaters, and changing leaves. Let’s be clear, I am not ready for winter.  Even though my grey mink coat makes it slightly more bearable, it is not fun.  But […]
