I left Delpozo yesterday afternoon on a fashion high. Creative director (and genius) Josep Font’s spring collection was influenced by Corot’s Gypsy Woman with Tambourine and glass cathedral windows – two elements that came together so beautifully in inspiring the accentuated volumes, sheer draping, delicate pleating, and oh-so-sweet heart-shaped necklines. Each ensemble, oozing with romance and drama, swept me off my feet . . . one after another. It was hands down one of my favorite collections thus far.
Lauren and I both grew up by the beach in Southern California and yet somehow found our way into the fashion culture of New York City. You can imagine then why we love Peter Som’s spring collection which embodies surf culture with an urban, downtown attitude. Vintage cut bikinis and cropped tops were worn under blue tweed bombers, printed tuxedo jackets, and oversized coats. And what’s a surf inspired collection without some Bermuda shorts and neoprene thrown into the mix?
Whether you are layering a patterned rug on top of another patterned rug or mixing a pattern with a natural woven, sheepskin, or hide rug, the more the better. I have 6 rugs in my living room, all overlapping creating a boho patchwork-style carpet. I personally feel you can never have too many rugs. Wouldn’t you agree?
Last season, we were inspired to incorporate color into our lackluster beauty routine after seeing hot pink pouts come down the runway at DVF. This season, although we’re only 2 days into New York Fashion Week, the brightest of bright orange lips at Rag & Bone have stopped us in our tracks. Makeup pro Gucci Westman chose an almost neon matte orange to compliment the minimalist silhouettes and the pastel, white and black palette that dominated the collection. We dig it. Update: orange lips spotted at Prabal Gurung and Creatures Of The Wind. Is orange the new black?!
