It’s hard to believe that the month is nearly over and we haven’t had a single day of the usual “June gloom” here in Los Angeles. That is normally a good thing but Irenaeus Herok‘s beautiful photos of haze over Australia’s Bondi Beach actually make me yearn for those overcast days. It just goes to show the beach is the ideal destination, regardless of the weather.
Designer Nicky Zimmermann is undoubtedly the leader of the romantic and luxe beachwear game and with her latest resort collection, she truly reigns supreme. The structured lace and floral batik dresses, with openwork lattice details, are simply breathtaking and a refreshing twist on her signature styles. And the corseted swimwear? Almost too pretty to just wear to the beach! So good.
I’m usually not a fan of ultra modern home designs but good lord, this oceanfront residence in Malibu is an absolute stunner. Despite it’s heavy use of concrete and glass, there is an inviting sense of warmth and airiness – perhaps it’s the white oak ceilings, the lush green landscaping, or the variety of textures in the furnishings. And how about the marble bathtub and the 168 foot infinity lap pool? Just wow.
I am officially obsessed with COS after my dear friend and photographer Lee Oliveira introduced me to H&M’s more elevated and pricier sister brand while we were in Florence over the weekend. I know, I know – I must have been living under an American rock. Everything is beautifully minimal and extremely well constructed. I was surprised at the superb quality, especially with average prices ranging from $40-$200. Word has it that COS will be opening up in LA and NYC any day now but in the meantime, you can shop all the amazing wares on their website! But then again, you probably already know that . . .
