We left New York on an optimistic, albeit freezing, high. It was all about practicality these past couple of days (with one special exception) but with interesting and inspiring silhouettes that we can’t wait to recreate come fall.
Rosetta Getty:We’ve had our eyes on Rosetta Getty ever since she re-established her namesake label a few seasons ago. Her ability to create an effortless yet luxe way of dressing has seasonless allure. Shirtdresses with elongated slits, extra wide leg culottes, and deconstructed cardigans?! This LA designer is speaking loud and clear to her fellow Angelinos.
The pressure was on when architect Stephen Jolson took on the responsibility of renovating Melbourne’s Bridge House. Built by the late Robin Boyd in the 50s, the house was built on ellipse-shaped supports – giving it it’s legendary name. So without jeopardizing the original integrity of the house, Jolson gave it a clean and modern update. I mean, how beautiful is the open shelved pantry and the circular wine cellar? Stunning!
Here it is. The second roundup of our favorite collections where the Victorian era, the 70s and the future have collided – a time when suede skirts, ruffled collars, fur stoles and shades of burnt orange will rule next fall.
Tibi:Per usual, we wanted everything off the Tibi runway and straight into our wardrobes. Inspired by Inuits and their life in the Artic, Amy Smilovic redefined cozy cool with stay-put jackets cleverly secured over the shoulders like capes, mohair sweaters worn over knit sweatpants, and mock turtlenecks paired with wrap suede skirts. And of course, the collection wouldn’t be recognizably Tibi without a selection of covetable culottes, done in denim, jersey and oh so cozy wool.
Fascinated by temporality and duality, Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde creates and photographs real life clouds inside empty spaces. No photoshop involved here, folks. He starts by regulating the temperature and humidity of the space and then sprays a short burst from a fog machine to create a perfect little cloud that suspends long enough for him to capture it with his camera. Beautiful.
