In honor of her very own fairy tale, Diane von Furstenberg‘s spring collection was fabricated with the polish of a princess and the heart of a gypsy. Seeing the stunning details in person last week transported me to all the exotic destinations that the collection was inspired by. And for those of you that might have missed her show in New York last month, you’ll have to check out the video below where Diane and several models captured the whole experience through Google’s new Glass technology. ” We live in such an amazing world. Things that we thought would be science fiction now exist. But fashion, technology, its all about life and being the women you want to be.”
There’s nothing better than the first sight of pumpkins in early October . . . a sign that fall is officially here and the holidays are soon to follow. While I’ll be carving a few shapely gourds in time for Halloween next week, I was inspired to decoupage a small batch with paint and black lace. They’re delightfully ghoulish and a great way to keep those pumpkins lasting longer!
After both working under the tutelage of Peter Som, designers Britt Cosgrove and Marina Polo have launched their own environmentally sustainable collection . . . and trust us, it’s good. SVILU features clean, twisted classic silhouettes and is produced locally in NYC with fabrics such organic cotton, tencel, modal, and cupro. We can’t wait to see more from these two talented ladies.
If vintage maps are your thing, then you’ll dig British artist Elisabeth Lecourt‘s Les Robes Géographiques series. Folded from old maps of San Francisco, Dublin, Conneticut, Jerusalem, Los Angeles, London, and New York, these small-scale, pleated dresses would make the perfect gift for any map lover.
