I’m loving Zimmermann‘s dark and sultry interpretation of 1920s nostalgia by way of their fall lookbook. The mood is flawlessly set with woven brocade pants, asian-inspired botanical silk printed skirts, lace dresses, and velvet blazers. I’m especially eager to try the strapless dress over blouse combo!
Do you remember how Diana, of Miss Moss, brilliantly re-imagined Kenzo‘s spring collection a couple of months ago? She’s outdone herself with another series – this time positioning looks from Thakoon‘s pre-fall collection against a selection of watercolors and oil paintings. The neutral landscapes compliment Thakoon’s pastel color palette, feminine silhouettes, and woolly textures perfectly!
Nestled in the colorful fishing village of Trancoso, on Brazil’s idyllic southern Bahian coast, is UXUA Casa Hotel. This sustainable and spectacular retreat was created by former Diesel designer Wilbert Das, in collaboration with local artisans, using traditional building methods, reclaimed materials, and Brazilian antiques and art. Four of the ten casas are restored fishermen homes on the 16th century town green called the Quadrado, while the rest sit in a lush garden. My kind of paradise . . .
