On My Radar

Name To Know: Matteau

Last July I did a swimsuit clean-out, after which I ordered a large number of tops and bottoms from every corner of the earth. Matteau, the sustainability focused label launched in 2012 by Australian stylist and Unconditional magazine fashion director Ilona Hamer and her sister, was the clear swimwear winner. After the sister duo launched a line of resort wear end of 2019, I picked up a featherweight cotton dress , which will be the perfect après-beach cover-up, and a cropped linen top to pair with my satin midi-length skirts. I’m eager to wear both. Now I’m on the hunt for a one-piece with my preferred and hard to find low-cut leg. This time I started with Matteau.

June/July WSJ. Magazine

‘The Quiet Grace of a Summer at Home’

Thank you WSJ. Magazine for this absolutely breathtaking story from the upcoming June/July issue. Inspired by Flemish portraiture, the pre-fall looks on Doutzen Kroes coupled with Annemarieke van Drimmelen’s photography are a winning combo.

Maine State of Mind

I have Maine on the brain, it’s one of my favorite places on the planet. Last week a reader tipped me off about the fantastic totes and ditty bags from Lincolnville-based Canvas Bag Machine, then my friend recommended the fresh, seasonal seafood from Downeast Dayboat and sent me blueberry pie cookies from Portland Cake Company — yum! A late summer road trip up the coast is a beautiful thing.

Fave Rerun From Supplement Magazine

‘After Ghost Ranch’

I ran this Georgia O’Keeffe-inspired story, from the first issue of the short-lived indie magazine Supplement, in 2015 — it’s just as gorgeous today.

Summer kick-off

Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day – a day to honor and remember those who gave their lives in service. It’s also the unofficial opening act of summer.

It is cool and a bit rainy here and we are still in quarantine. Sadly, no gathering with friends and extended family, quick trip to the Vineyard, or French Open tennis. So, this weekend will be about food. I’ve actually become quite the cook these last 10 weeks. Until recently, my kitchen skills could be described as ace food assembler — cheese boards, sandwiches, salads, etc. were my sole forte. But, no more. I made the roast tarragon chicken with crispy mushrooms, sundry quiches, and have roasted veggies galore — all delicious and worth the extra effort. Maybe by Monday we’ll be able to have a sandless clambake al fresco.

I hope everyone is well. xp

Cream of the Crop

Cream, ivory, natural, off-white — I love them all, especially when worn with pure white. In theory, the BV jacket ticked all the boxes. In reality, it was a miss. The Celine above is gorgeous and worth a try. While in quarantine I’ve been buying a lot of sneakers because I’ve been wearing them nonstop. The Common Projects pair were surprisingly large and a smaller size is coming. And a sizable Adidas order is due to arrive today. LL Bean is part of my DNA and this new tote has my name on it (black is really good, too). Finally, when we can socialize again, this Deliciously Ella candle will be my summer 2020 hostess gift (once they ship to the U.S.). The packaging, alone, is great.

It Item

Mac Attack

Finally, I found the perfect classic, run around raincoat and it’s by Mackintosh. So good, I bought two different sizes (one to accommodate a bulky sweater). FYI, this coat runs large and is double bonded cotton, a traditional and stiffish rainwear material. I snapped it up during a 20% off promotion, which Mackintosh should offer again as we head into sale season.

Linn Hägglund Inspired (again)

This Bottega Veneta PF19 jacket was in the kic shop for months, yet I never tried it. Then I spied it on Linn Hägglund, whose style I admire immensely, and decided to call it in. The bouclé gives the jacket a soft, cardigan look and I could see myself wearing it three seasons.

Unconditional Magazine Issue #6

A Simple Chain

All the chatter about Connell’s silver chain necklace in the tv adaptation of ‘Normal People’ reminded me of this gorgeous story that Alexandra Nataf shot for Unconditional  issue #6. Ilona Hamer’s styling with this simple chain is chic as can be.

Slide Into Summer

The Holiday magazine story shot in Capri inspired me to pull out my Dr. Scholl’s. The Original Collection sandals have golden hardware, which I prefer. Tomato red is my favorite, and I wear the blue pair with denim all summer long. Ironically, the only color I don’t own is black.
