The Violin Maker

I spent many years of my childhood playing the piano. Interestingly enough, the violin is my favorite instrument. My love for this string instrument and my appreciation for fine craftsmanship has me excited for Dustin Cohen‘s debut episode, of his “Made In Brooklyn” series, profiling Sam Zygmuntowicz. Zygmuntowicz is a Brooklyn based luthier who has worked with many of the finest violinists and cellists in the world, including Isaac Stern and Yo-Yo Ma. Already, it’s music to my ears . . .


Louis Vuitton Fall 2012

Can you imagine a steam engine train pulling onto a runway, inside Paris’ Cour Carrée, with models deboarding in 19th century travel heritage inspired looks? And each with their own porter carrying luggage? Well, it happened – and in the most dramatic fashion. With giant jeweled brooches as buttons for coats, oversized hats by Stephen Jones, and layered kaleidoscopic-like prints, Marc Jacobs’s show stopping collection for Louis Vuitton was ornate and richly detailed. Just when you thought last season‘s carousel-themed presentation couldn’t be topped . . .
