French label By Zoé has embodied sophisticated comfort with their collection of shearling jackets, marled sweaters, thermal-like tops and ikat vests. C’est très chic!
I love that Lonny Magazine recently profiled Riad El Fenn, a hip boutique hotel that I’ve been stalking in my longtime quest to explore Marrakech. Co-owned by Richard Branson‘s sister, Vanessa Branson, the 21 room riad is an intimate, art-filled retreat located in the heart of the bustling medina. After observing it’s undeniable charm, you’ll see why I’ve been dying to pay Riad El Fenn a visit. One day . . .
Nicole Romano‘s resort collection, inspired by estate jewelry, vintage glass carved stones, and antique crystals, proves that everything old becomes new again. Her work was discovered by Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field several years ago and was featured frequently in both the series and movies. Honestly, what’s good enough for Ms. Bradshaw is good enough for me! Be sure to score first dibs on this stunning collection over at Moda Òperandi before August 20th!
Gibbs Farm, a large sculpture park in North Auckland, New Zealand, is home to a collection of incredible, large scale artworks by some of the world’s most significant artists. Because most all the works are commissioned, artists are able to cater to the lay of the land. Neil Dawon’s Horizons is probably one of my favorites – not only is it one of the earliest sculptures to be commissioned for the Gibbs Farm, it also sits on one of the highest points of the property. I love the tromp l’oeil effect as what seems like a floating, drawn piece of paper is actually a massive sculpture made of welded steel. This place is definitely going on the bucket list.
