Does it get any better than Liberty of London‘s heritage floral prints in the form of Paige denim? We think not. The moment we caught whiff of this brilliant collaboration, we were literally jumping for joy. We especially love how the process involved such detail – co-founder Paige Adams-Geller hand selected the prints, the denim was then printed at Liberty’s facilities in Italy to guarantee precision and shipped back to the United States for manufacturing. With the mid rise Silverlake and high rise Lola shorts guaranteed to be essentials in our summer wardrobes, we’ve partnered with our friends at Paige to giveaway a pair to one of our readers. Simply leave a comment below, follow Paige Denim on Twitter, and a winner will be selected at random on Monday, May 28th. (Sorry, limited to US & Canada residents only. Winner will be announced and contacted by email. Good luck! xx ** Contest CLOSED. Congrats to Alicia C!)
Back in January, we took a mini-tour of shoe designer Tabitha Simmons‘ airy, elegant, and unique Manhattan townhouse via the glossy pages of Vogue. The feature left us wanting to see more. Lucky for us, Tabitha opened up her home once again for The Coveteur – this time, for a peek inside her closet, which can only be summed up in two words: McQueen & shoes. Lots of shoes . . .
The moment I met Shaney jo Darden, the co-founder of The Keep A Breast Foundation, I was instantly moved and inspired. After a close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer at an early age, Shaney was motivated to expose young women to methods of prevention, early detection and support through the use of art and artistic expression. Their Treasured Chest Program gives women who are diagnosed with breast cancer an opportunity to document their journeys with a hand-made plaster form of their torsos, which they hand paint as a part of their therapy. And occasionally, the foundation will cast athletes, musicians, and actors and pair them with artists such as Shepard Ferry, Nick Walker, and Dalek to help raise funds. I feel so honored to be one of many castees for the Tokyo LOVE Show, as part of the official launch of Keep A Breast Japan. Proceeds from the sale of all casts will benefit Keep A Breast Japan‘s breast cancer awareness and prevention programs. Take a moment to check out the beautiful casts and help spread the word . . . you might even find mine in there somewhere!
I’m so thrilled to have been asked to contribute a boho-inspired DIY for H&M‘s Summer 2012 Magazine – and even more flattered that it was featured alongside a rad DIY by one of our favorites Shini Park of Park & Cube. Stop by your local H&M for a bag, pick up a copy of their summer issue, and DIY your own floral printed handbag! I’ll also be posting the step by step instructions in a couple of weeks so stay tuned . . .
