Max and Lubov Azria had their spring showing yesterday morning and we honestly couldn’t think of a better collection to help kick off New York Fashion Week. Weightless, baroque printed and lingerie-like dresses juxtaposed beautifully with leather harnesses were inspired by the femme fatale muses and Helmut Newton’s black and white photography. I was especially smitten with the muted palettes with pops of coral . . . stunning.
In his series titled “Flying Houses,” Laurent Chehere manipulates images by placing ordinary homes and buildings high into the sky. Inspired by the forgotten homes of the Belleville and Menilmontant neighborhoods in Paris, Chehere brilliantly highlights the unsung beauty and details of the architecture.
Clearly, Formentera is where we’ll eventually need that second home that we so often dream about. A small Spanish island located near Ibiza, Formentera is known best for its pristine white beaches and beautiful white-washed and rustic homes. What an ideal setting for the perfect retreat, no?
We love a good collaboration, especially when two brands seems to meld together so harmoniously. Nicole Hanriot, of swimwear brand Beach Riot, has teamed up with Dallas Wand and Cydney Morris of Stone Cold Fox to create a sultry collection of Brazilian-inspired swimwear. Vintage palm prints and unique silhouettes in solid black and ivory make the mix-and-match possibilities endless.
