DIY Leather Visor

Our love affair with hats isn’t limited to bowlers, skimmers, cowboy hats, baseball caps and beanies. We are crazy about visors. Season after season, we’ve been spotting these sun shaders on the runway. Last year, Rag & Bone‘s straw visors were perfect for the beach. This year, Marni‘s bejeweled, wide brimmed visors were sporty and trés chic. And next spring, we’re sure to see Adam Selman‘s scarf wrapped visors on the streets – or at least on Riri. After collecting vintage leather visors for years, Lauren created a easy to follow tutorial so that you, too, could relish in our visor craze. Plus, it makes the perfect accessory for those sunny fall days!

Spring 2015: Stripes

Stripes and gingham and graphic checks . .  and more stripes, oh my! Stripes of all kinds are streaking the runway this season and we’re especially loving the ticking stripe inspired lines – a quieter, more down to earth variety that we can all see ourselves dressed in come spring.

A Loft In Madrid

The warm masculine hue of Santiago Castillo’s Madrid apartment is enviably elegant and homey. The Spanish painter enlisted his interior designer brother Lorenzo Castillo to help revamp the space with entirely new floors, a fresh coats of paint, the addition of cognac and black furniture and walls decorated with vintage photographs and Santiago’s own art. Check out the images of what the loft looked like before, you’ll be shocked at the transformation!

Spring 2015: White Out

Fashion Week is well underway in New York and our love for spring’s omnipresent color is flourishing. Far from colorless, this crisp, and sometimes soft, shade proved it’s depth and range on the runway – especially when it came to layering tonal separates together. Hold onto those white skirts, pants, blouses and sweaters you’ve been living in all summer. You’ll be building monochromatic ensembles with next season’s wares come 2015, trust us.
