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.
Thank you, Cosmic Dust, for introducing me to the Parisian label, Moonchild. Their stunning spring lookbook is feeding my obsession of southwestern prints, ponchos, boots, hats, and just about anything with crochet or fringe details.
Australia’s Blue Mountains, a World Heritage Site, is best known for it’s incredible sandstone plateau, deep gorges, and rolling foothills. The mountains are densely populated by Eucalyptus trees, which fill the atmosphere with finely dispersed droplets of oil that catch the sunlight and create a magical, blue glow. The Wolgan Valley Resort is nestled in the rugged heart of this all. The eco-friendly, carbon neutral, 400 acre resort blends seamlessly into its natural surrounding, making it a perfect place to revitalize the senses. So . . . shall we book a trip, mate?
Last week in Milan, Raf Simons took his final bow as the creative director of Jil Sander by delivering a collection that was, well, fresh as a sweet Sunday morning. Honestly, I think I fell in love with pink all over again, as if it were the very first time. The palette was classic, sugary, and graceful and silhouettes were strong, structured, and modern. I’m absolutely mad for the double-face coats, nude jumpsuit, and navy dress with a keyhole bodice. Bravo, Raf!
