For her resort 2014 collection for Gucci, Frida Giannini merged leisure and luxury in the form of lurex kimono gowns, paisley tunics, sheer metallic jumpsuits, and crystal-embroidered pajama sets in all colors of a sultry sunset. The inspiration? Jerry Hall goes to Rio de Janeiro circa 1970. Enough said.
LN-CC is now carrying a limited collection of beaded skulls from artist Catherine Martin of Our Exquisite Corpse. Working in collaboration with the Huichol tribe of Western Mexico, Catherine designs each resins skull using traditional symbols and patterns. The beadwork is incredibly intricate and exceptional – I’d love to own one of these unique pieces of art!
It’s no surprise that Levi‘s first time collaboration, for their women’s collection, is a good one. Together, with Liberty of London, they’ve created a capsule collection that includes 15 floral and denim pieces for spring. The garden flower prints were based on Liberty patterns from the 40s and 70s, redrawn with watercolor pencils and put into a repeat design. You’ll find me living in the hooded anorak and the denim trucker vest this summer.
Architect and designer Guilherme Torres was invited to participate in Black Mostra, one of the most important interior design competitions in Brazil. He designed the ideal living space for a fictional young professional and art collector named Mister Black.
