I’m obsessed with these beautifully shot and art directed images from Serge Leblon. I love the contrast of the clean pop of modern color blocks against the rough rocks. dreamy and beautiful. happy monday!

A few of the wonderful pieces featured in the Balenciaga Exhibition at the Spanish Institute in NYC. I wish I was there so I could attend! The event opens Friday at Park Avenue and runs through February 19th.

Once a ping pong champion at age 13, now an award-winning photographer. Here are a few of my favorites from, Singapore photographer, John Clang’s artwork and exhibitions. Clang just received Singapore’s Designer of the Year Award. This year was the first time they handed it to a photographer—pretty cool. Check him out.
About a year ago, I was shopping happily in the Dallas North Park Barneys when I almost lost my breath (in a good way). I was being escorted back to the fitting room of the COOP section when suddenly I turned the corner to the most wonderful walls I had ever seen. They were covered in mini portraits—boys, girls, dogs, purple, pink, lime green, black, yellow and under each portrait was a playful saying/characteristic of the cutie written in pencil. I quickly tried on my goods and threw open the fitting room door to take a closer look. They appeared to be done by hand and they had an imperfect way about them that I adored. I about died. I had to know who did these. I asked the sales person who had no idea. I feel like I should be spanking them now. I mean, you work at Barneys and you must escort at least 30-50 people back there per day how could you NOT have inquired about these! (spank! bad barneys employee! Simon Doonan would be beside himself) I left with a cute cardigan but no info on my new artistic crush. Who could this BE!? Continue reading »
No, I’m not referring to something I’d throw at a dog. If you haven’t heard of Rag & Bone, get online and buy stuff! It is my absolute favorite apparel and accessories brand. Not only do I adore the name and the line itself, I am blown away by the story behind it.
Two young designers with no experience got together and started a clothing line (in Kentucky of all places). Each piece, whether it be a pair of jeans or a silk shirt, focuses on classic construction, an understated chic look and a killer fit. Another reason to drool and spend the cash is that practically every piece in the collection is HAND MADE in the USA. Crazy! While most companies these days mass produce low quality crap and mark it up, Rag & Bone makes the hand-made feel and perfect fit part of their standards. You pay a hefty price, but believe me, it’s worth it. I feel like a million bucks every time I wear a piece from the collection. Another plus: It’s not one of those collections that gets old or looks overly trendy. It’s perfect for ladies and gentlemen in their 20s who want to feel fashion forward and sophisticated and it’s still appropriate in your 30s and 40s because of the classic tailoring and high quality materials. It’s also not grossly flashy—no “Rag & Bone” seen screen printed across the chest (puke) just simple pleats, folds, frays, buttons and details that make people wonder. My favorite purchase: a white silk tank with black little daggers all over it—the perfect mix of edgy and sophisticated.
