Yes, yes, yes! Jenni Kayne‘s pre-fall collection is pure, wearable perfection. Forties-inspired silhouettes, in nubby denim, buttery leather, snake-printed jacquard and Liberty-printed twill, are styled so effortlessly with sumptuous fur scarves, killer sunnies and chic saddle shoes. Head to toe . . . we want it all.
The holidays are all about relaxing with family and friends at home – baking sweets, decorating the Christmas tree, sitting by the fireplace and snuggling up to watch your favorite holiday movie. With the unusually cold temperatures we’ve been experiencing in California lately, Lauren and I made a trip to Nordstrom Rack to hunt down some warm essentials, including super soft sweaters by Vince that you’ll want to live in and Minnetonka moccasin slippers to keep those feet warm.
Karl Lagerfeld has been presenting Chanel‘s Métiers d’Art collection every December since 2002, with past locations that have included Edinburgh and past themes that have been inspired by India, Shanghai and the Ottoman Empire. This season, it was Dallas, Texas – the fashion house’s first show in North America. Over 90 looks walked under a gorgeous canopy of flags at Dallas’ historic Fair Park. But first, seventy-four restored vintage automobiles were parked in front of four giant drive-in movie screen for the premier of the film The Return. Then collection celebrated the American West with blanket-pattern knit stoles, ponchos, fringed skirts, white prairie tops, black sheriff ties, and civil war inspired hats by Maison Michel. Native Texan Erin Wasson walked the runway carrying bottles of Chanel No.5 in her gun holsters. Honestly, don’t mess with Texas!
