Paying tribute to retro 2D video games in a shoe ad campaign, Stockholm-based photographer Christian Åslund used the streets of Hong Kong as a backdrop for his navigating subjects. The images were shot from skyscrapers toward the ground, using a telephoto lens to make the photographs as flat as possible. Honestly, clever!
Cashmere sweaters over silk embroidered shift dresses over leather pants. Quilted parkas over silk printed strapless tops over silk chiffon tunics over crepe skirts. We were all taking mental notes while being schooled in the art of layering at BCBG Max Azria yesterday. This season, Max and Lubov Azria combined the intricate tile patterns of Turkey, the eclectic style of the gypsies of Southern Europe, and the gritty street artwork of artist Phil Frost into one lustworthy collection – filled with a copious amount of separates for all your layering interpretations. Add slouchy beanies and thigh high leather boots and it’s truly head to toe perfection.

Yesterday, I stopped by the Lulu Frost studio for an exciting DIY session with the lovely Lisa Salzer and her crafty team. We had been chatting for weeks about finding creative ways to display and store jewelry – a problem we all seemed to struggle with. So after sorting through Lisa’s wide ranging collection of antique hardware, we were inspired to find a way to show off not only her found treasures but also our favorite Lulu Frost jewels.
