I’m so in love with Sunny Gu‘s fashion illustrations. Her unbelievable attention to detail only accentuates the use of ornate textures and wonderful colors. I’m not sure which is more inspiring – the original designs from the catwalk where she finds her inspiration or her watercolor versions?
Geraldo da Conceicao’s first resort collection for Sonia Rykiel was a true tribute to the French designer’s penchant for knitwear. Pastel knit dresses, pleated skirts and intarsia sweaters were given a très chic lift with biker jackets, giant nylon backpacks, and sky high platform espadrilles. Perfect ensembles for a Parisian outing, n’est pas?
Mike D, of The Beastie Boys, is just a normal family man living “the suburban dream in Brooklyn.” Who knew?! His beautiful 3,200-square-foot brownstone is decorated with some surprising and not so surprising details like a crocheted chandelier by Olek, paintings by Kim Gordon, custom toile wallpaper, a mirrored swing from a Rajasthani palace, and an impressive collection of heirloom china. No sleep til Brooklyn, y’all . . .
