It was Scandinavian mythology that was the inspiration for designer Sandra Sandor’s fall collection for Nanushka. All the wonderful textures and patterns, like fur, fringe and plaid, are a nod to Nordic folk culture. The more modern silhouettes, like bell sleeved tops, wide leg trousers and exaggerated turtlenecks, have that 70s vibe. And the amazing color combinations, mixing vivid orange with soft lavender and bold cobalt blue with muted nude . . . well, that’s Nanushka for you. So good.
The days are getting longer and the weather is warming up nicely. This time of year is just begging for more outdoor entertaining, something that I absolutely live for. I know the thought of hosting a guests during the workweek can seem formidable – I mean, there are some nights where I’m so exhausted, I can hardly wrap my head around what to even order from a takeout menu. But if you’ve got just a few minutes to spare, you can easily whip together an impressive spread for your guests. Today, in collaboration with #TargetStyle, I’ll be giving you tips on how to spruce up your backyard for a midweek game night with friends.
The vibrant colors and intricate inlays of an Edie Parker clutch make it hard not to do a double take. A fervent collector of vintage handbags from the 50s and 60s, designer Brett Heyman has turned the evening bag game on it’s head with her modern and wonderfully cheeky interpretation of retro minaudières. Each clutch is made with pearlescent and glitter flecked acrylics and handcrafted using traditional techniques right here in the States. Her bags, her style, her bold and innovative spirit, we love it all. We recently caught up with the New York designer – along with the lovely ladies of The Stone Set – as she took us on a jaunt through FD Gallery, a boutique on the Upper East Side that boasts a beautifully curated collection of art, books, and most impressively, estate jewelry. From pieces with historical provenance to rare Cartier clutches and vintage pineapple ice buckets, it’s no wonder Brett constantly finds inspirational refuge inside the ultimate cabinet of curiosities.
