Just when you think a collection couldn’t get any better (as is always the case with Valentino), Diana Moss works that magical eye of hers and transforms it into an entirely new and compelling series where fashion so flawlessly collides with art. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Botticelli inspired floral prints and embroidery come to life against these century old works of art. And while we’re in the throes of award season, who wants to bet that we’ll be seeing one of these utterly stunning gowns on the Oscar’s red carpet?!
For former model and jewelry designer Michelle Elie, fashion is art and art is fashion. It’s obvious in the fearless way she dresses and her admiration for designers like Comme des Garçons, Delpozo, Viktor & Rolf, Balenciaga, Haider Ackermann, and Rodarte. It’s impossible not to adore and admire her for her refreshing take on fashion – especially when it can sometimes feel so safe and commercialized. As she so profoundly says in her ever inspiring Style Like U interview: “If you’re for everybody, you’re for nobody.”
With it’s low ceilings, exposed wood beams, and undeniable allure, you would think this cozy townhouse calls somewhere like England home. But no. This delightful, three-story home is situated on Warren Place in Cobble Hill in Brooklyn – a street lined with English style cottages intended as affordable housing for laborers in the late 1800s. Couple Elspeth Benoit and David Bevan bought the house and gave it a much needed facelift, ridding the house of walls and stripping plaster to open up the space and reveal it’s original charm. I love the grey color throughout, the mix of tile, the chevron dining room floors and Kelly Wearstler wallpaper!
The moment I saw Tu Es Mon Tresor’s pearl embellished boyfriend jeans, I knew they were a do-it-yourself must. Three dimensional polka dots?! And precious pearls paired with rugged denim?! Opposites definitely attract in this match made in heaven . . .
