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 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 […]

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.

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 […]

I love this Tibi dress and definitely plan to put on my fall shopping list and soon we will be able to dress our homes in fabulous Tibi prints. “We’re doing our first wallpaper line!” confided Tibi’s designer, Amy Smilovic, at the WWD-sponsored after-party at the Bryant Park Hotel yesterday. “We have a license with […]

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 […]

When I mentioned in a previous post that the Sundance Channel was going to be airing the Loïc Prigent documentary Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton, I had no idea they had a whole week of fashion films and documentaries lined up to coincide with Fashion Week. How exciting! The week will kick off on Monday […]

Wang explained that the Lavender line’s color palate was inspired by the […]

Word on the street is that the home of fashion designer Monique Lhuillier will grace the cover of the January/February 2008 issue of Elle Decor.

A Fashionable Read

When I was looking for Jeremiah Goodman illustrations yesterday, I came across one he did of Diana Vreeland’s living room. I had been meaning to write a little post about the grand dame of fashion for a while and now seemed like the perfect opportunity. I also think it’s another example of the world of […]

Carolina Herrera often cites artists as her inspiration. A few years back it was French photographer Jacques-Henri Lartigue. This season, it’s the interiors illustrator extraordinaire Jeremiah Goodman and his book Jeremiah: A Romantic Vision. Can you think of anything more chic?! It’s also the perfect example of the way fashion, art, and interior design often […]
