Last season TRIWA collaborated with two of our favorite street artists Supakitch & Koralie to create a small collection of watches. Recently the Swedish watchmakers worked closely with British artist and designer Dominic Wilcox to create three pieces of artwork inspired by this season’s timepieces. The miniature scenes represent the process of watch production from the delivery of parts to the assembly and refinement. Dominic says “I’ve always liked the idea of little people living in a secret miniature world.” So cool!
This season, J.Crew delved into the Liberty of London archives in search of romantic, floral prints for their best selling ‘perfect shirt.’ Do you recognize the same D’Anjo print that we used in a recent tutorial? Definitely adding that to my shopping basket because let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to match their Liberty lampshade?!
Mary Katrantzou recently teamed with one of Hong Kong’s biggest shopping center Harbour City to design a gorgeous, limited edition floral printed umbrella. The proceeds will go directly to The Community Chest of Hong Kong, a non profit organization that provides grants to a wide variety of social welfare projects. Fashion for a great cause – we’re always down with that! Don’t you love how style blogger Kristina, of Kayture, has paired it with an emerald green and crystal Zara necklace?
Nicole Romano‘s resort collection, inspired by estate jewelry, vintage glass carved stones, and antique crystals, proves that everything old becomes new again. Her work was discovered by Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field several years ago and was featured frequently in both the series and movies. Honestly, what’s good enough for Ms. Bradshaw is good enough for me! Be sure to score first dibs on this stunning collection over at Moda Òperandi before August 20th!
Just when I thought I couldn’t swallow another peplum blouse or studded something, Zara has managed to win me over with their latest offerings. And head-to-toe black ensembles?! I can get down with that.
Inspired by Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Karen Walker’s fall collection combines sea militariana with Victorian romance and a bit of 60s mod. I’m crushing big time on the octopus sweater, the navy paisley printed blouses and the orangy-red boyish trousers. And holy moly, what’s the story behind the shoes?!
