Christion Dior Resort 2016

It seemed befitting that Pierre Cardin’s infamously quirky bubble palace, Palais Bulles, was the chosen venue for Raf Simons’ presentation of his resort collection for Dior. The futuristic architecture of the house, nestled on the cliffs between Cannes and Monaco, set the stage for a youthful and neo-traditional collection of leather flip flops, taffeta shorts, lurex knits, a reinvented Bar peplum jacket and net dresses worn over pleated skirts. Easy yet always glamorous  – just like the French Riviera. PS If you’ve got a case of FOMO, I highly recommend watching the video after the jump . . .

Mural Walls

There’s something so beautifully theatrical about wall murals – one of the oldest forms of decorative wall treatments. I’ve been dragging my feet on settling on a repetitive wallpaper for our powder room but was recently inspired by de Gournay‘s exquisite hand painted reproductions of 18th century Chinoiserie landscapes. I love it so much, I’m going for it . . .

Tavin

There’s nothing I love more than wearing comfortable, barely sheer cotton dresses in the summer. So when you come across a boutique like Tavin, that reworks vintage pieces for that modern fit, you take note and hoard as many romantic frocks as you can.
