Kelly Wearstler is wooing us yet again with another opulent collection of jewels. We love the combination of bold industrial components like screws and bolts with natural elements like shells and stones – as if each bauble came out of a futuristic Cabinet of Natural Curiosities!
The first time I tried on a pair of MiH jeans, I instantly fell in love with the fit and have been a fan ever since. I’m digging their newest collection of light washed denim, which includes scalloped shorts, colorblocked skinnies, and boiler suits. Yes, you heard right – a retro-inspired, one piece denim suit . . . the new overall, perhaps?!
Design duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino looked to Flemish Old Masters and Dutch painter Vermeer as their main inspirations for fall. The designers wanted to frame the face, with focuses on the neckline with the finest leather and lace embroidered collars. The real show stoppers were the gorgeous gowns in China blue prints inspired by Delft ceramics that Valentino himself had used in a dress in 1968.
No-nonsense chic. It’s what makes Céline so damn desirable. Soft leather clutches held tightly against woolen coats and boxy turtlenecks paired with flared skirts had us wondering which street style mavens would be emulating this look come fall. And though a beautifully soft and minimalist palette dominated the collection, I was most smitten with the plaids inspired by those ubiquitous nylon shopping carryalls. Brilliant!
Gretchen Jones is blowing our socks off with her upcoming fall collection – mixing urban, ladylike classics with a touch of modern bohemian romanticism. Fall can’t come soon enough as we’re anxious to incorporate her elongated peplum dresses in pixilated and ethnic prints, pleated skirts with slouchy hip pockets, patchwork blouses, and ankle-length trousers into our wardrobes. And a Bauhaus-inspired jewelry collection to boot? Sold.
We love luxury label Maiyet and it’s mission to celebrate rare artisanal skills from all over the world. They’ve recently partnered with Nest, a nonprofit organization, dedicated to cultivating and developing artisan techniques like carved-block printing in Jaipur, India, batiking in West Java, Indonesia, and lost-wax cast jewelry making in Medellin, Colombia. The result is a collection filled with white-on-white ensembles, printed silk jumpers and dresses, and a bevy of stunning jewelry.
