Confezioni Crosby‘s has us absolutely itching for a weekend getaway – to just about anywhere warm. Confezioni is an old fashioned word in Italian that means tailor-made and Crosby is the street in New York where designers Benedetta Antonelli and Jonathan Joory live. Inspired by old American workwear, this collection is full of lightweight and playful utilitarian clothing, while honoring Antontelli’s Italian roots. So chic and feminine.
How brilliant is this December Vogue editorial, where fashion pays homage to some of art’s greatest works? Shot by Annie Leibovitz and edited by Grace Coddington, Jessica Chastain recreates van Gogh’s La Mousmé in Alexander McQueen, Gustav Klimt’s portrait of Ria Munk in Vera Wang, Frederic Leighton’s Flaming June in Theory by Theyskens, and Félix Vallatton’s Le Retour de la Mer in Alexander Wang. Bravo!
There is an undeniable cool factor to the utilitarian Kånken daypack. Fjällräven, which means Arctic Fox in Swedish, originally designed the Kånken in 1978 for kids with back problems due to book carrying. Today this iconic Swedish brand has become a beloved icon for generations all around the world, selling over 200,000 bags a year. A simple and functional design that has stood the test of time. I want one! Question is: what color??
Our love of nail art was renewed after spotting tribal-inspired nails come down the runway at Tibi this September. Nail artist Jin Soon Choi created an understated design that symbolized alright, which complimented an equally cool Spring 2014 collection. Although she used an off white bluish gray shade, we opted to recreate this mani with our favorite color of the moment: pale pink! Add some vertical and horizontal lines and well, all is right.
