I about died when I discovered that these incredible handbags, under the label Tila March, are designed by my former boss and mentor Tamara Taichman. I used to be her assistant when I first started styling many, many moons ago. A fashion editor for French Elle and a fashion consultant for too many brands to name, it’s no wonder that Tamara and her partner Nicolas Berdugo have created a collection of timeless and chic bags and shoes. Congratulations Tamara, I’ve added the taupe suede bucket bag to my wish list!
Gypsy dresses and harem pants and billowy blouses, oh my! Cynthia Vincent‘s Resort 2012 Collection is all about peace, love and happiness . . . and right up my alley. And what a great idea to update a maxi skirt or dress by tying it into a side knot!
Breaking up is hard to do. Artist and designer Jon Jackson recently said adiós to LA, the city he called home for years, with a series of billboards with 5 classic breakup lines we’ve heard or used at one point in our lives. What a creative yet expensive way to end a relationship! I spotted one of these billboards back in January and thought, WTF? Well, it all makes sense now.
Were you blown away by Proenza Schouler‘s entireFall 2011 Collection as much as we were? The juxtaposition of digitalized and geometric Native American inspired prints with decorative, Victorian-like statement necklaces was all kinds of genius. And of course, the jewelry had the wheels in our DIY minds spinning ever since. Erica of PS I Made This recently made a beautiful version of Proenza Schouler’s scroll necklace in white and today, we’re tackling a version in black . . . it’s all about the yin and the yang, right?
I was so excited to have spotted these chairs by Bokja on Table Tonic this morning – but WTF, how can anybody not notice them? These exuberant pieces of furniture are the fruits of Beirut-based Hoda Baroudi and Maria Hibriall‘s labor. Working alongside artisans, the design duo reupholsters furniture using vintage Middle Eastern and Central Asian textiles. Gemma of Line Shape Color recently visited their store in Beruit and shot some amazing photos seen below. Each of their many extraordinary chairs would be a fantastic addition to any home, wouldn’t you agree? Hopefully, one day, one of those homes is mine.
