Nobody loves a good sale more than me, especially when it means shoes, handbags and jewelry at an additional markdown. Until Saturday, Shopbop is offering up to 25% off sale items. This is just a taste of our favorite items and recent purchases (those Tibi boots and Maiyet sandals!). Don’t forget to use code BIGEVENT15!
Excuse me while I pick my jaw up from the floor – or rather, the boundless desert floor. I’ve fallen in love with Andria Crescioni‘s collection of hand stitched leather jewelry. Inspired by the spirit of the American West, each Crescioni silhouette is derived from traditional craft techniques using supple leather and rough metals as the medium. It’s all just soooo good.
Polish painter Justyna Kopania‘s latests series of sailboats and ships has rendered me speechless. The heavy, flat strokes, depicting reflections and dimensions, make her work so distinctive. I love how the boats seem to be gliding away while the birds look to be flying off the canvas. I could stare at these all day!
The youthful and romantic themes radiating from the runways in Milan gave us an unexpected, molto bene boost as we near the end of fashion season. Here is what we were loving . . .
Bally: Thanks to new creative direction, Bally has been undergoing a cooler, younger transformation this past year. I mean, how can millennials not be swayed by Pablo Coppola’s ode to The Royal Tenenbaums by way of a Wes Anderson rich color palette, Margot Tenenbaum influenced outerwear and a hint of Richie Tenenbaum quirk? It wasn’t all too literal however. Asymmetrical fur trimmed blazers and extra wide leather trousers felt new and fresh.
