Last season the ever inspiring Anna Dello Russo was photographed wearing a Stephen Jones-designed black veiled beanie, fresh off Jil Sander‘s Spring 2012 runway. Not surprisingly, others have followed suit and the same veiled beanies have recently been spotted on the streets of Milan and Paris. Should you decide to jump on the bandwagon, alongside me, I suggest making the boyishly feminine hat yourself with a slouchy beanie and a couple feet of birdcage netting!
Spring’s pastel and floral trend has us bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. So it’s no surprise that we’re head over heels for Nine West‘s collection of sweet wedges, chic flats, and foxy pumps, all available in an assortment of bold floral prints. I personally love coupling a pair of floral shoes with colorful, ankle-length skinny jeans. If that combination doesn’t have you tickled pink, it’s time to go forth and get #poweredbyflower.
Annie, get your gun – we’re headed West! Only Isabel Marant can transform yoked cowboy shirts, leather gaucho pants, lace prairie blouses, and embroidered suede booties into an incredibly fresh, effortless, and all around covetable collection. Once again, we’re in awe of the Marant “je ne sais quoi” affect . . .
Japanese artist and illustrator Baku Maeda started Ribbonesia in 2008, after discovering a unique way to fold ribbons into wearable animal sculptures. Each piece is made by hand, with custom colors, so that none of the animals are the exact same. Aren’t they just adorable?!
Leave it to Mario Testino to transform a 1930s Spanish-style hacienda, tucked away in the Hollywood Hills, into a refined display of art, fashion, and culture. Natalia Vodianova dons the season’s best wares against an immense backdrop of contemporary art, Peruvian furniture, and decor from all over the world . . . all photographed by Mario himself, of course.
