As an avid lamp collector, I about died when I saw these carved lamps made from dried gourds by Calabarte. Gourds from Senegal are meticulously hand drilled, allowing light to shine through the fine patterns. Absolutely stunning.
(Floral prints + orange) x a sea of purple lavender = beautiful.
New York Fashion Week has come to an end and it’s only fitting that we close out our coverage with a few of our favorite highlights: meeting a slew of beyond amazing bloggers (hollerrrr), attending DKNY and Narcisco Rodriguez (pinch me), sipping on cocktails in between shows at the Kanon Digital Bar at Milk Studios (so necessary), having a blast at Jeremy Scott (cactus prints & assless chaps), meeting Mickey Drexler at FNO (major), being blown away by our two favorite collections this season (Mara Hoffman & Chris Benz), filming a really exciting DIY video (can’t wait to share), and being nominated for 3 Lucky Fabb awards (humbled and grateful). Phew. See you next season, NYFW! xx
Drawing inspiration from Senegalese textiles, Finnish Marikmekko prints, and Japanese kimonos, Diane von Furstenburg was all about conveying exuberance, optimism, and new beginnings in her Spring collection. The color combinations were beyond uplifting and fresh: bright pastels mixed with muted grays and rusts; high octane reds, blues and greens mixed with aubergine and stark whites. It’s no wonder the show ended with Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good” . . .
