We love luxury label Maiyet and it’s mission to celebrate rare artisanal skills from all over the world. They’ve recently partnered with Nest, a nonprofit organization, dedicated to cultivating and developing artisan techniques like carved-block printing in Jaipur, India, batiking in West Java, Indonesia, and lost-wax cast jewelry making in Medellin, Colombia. The result is a collection filled with white-on-white ensembles, printed silk jumpers and dresses, and a bevy of stunning jewelry.
Some of my favorite New York moments happen after getting lost in the city and stumbling upon an arbitrary street lined with beautiful architecture. Suddenly, my pace slows and I’m left imagining what lies behind the variety of striking doors and charming windows. Graphic designer José Guizar captures Manhattan’s allure in his project Windows of New York, where he illustrates a new window in a different neighborhood each week. Do any of these windows look familiar to you New Yorkers?
I can only imagine how liberating it must feel to take the leap towards the ever so sophisticated pixie cut, made popular by 60s icons Twiggy, Jean, and Mia.

So would you ever be brave enough to go for the full chop?
