‘Elsewhere’

cl-new

The FW14 issue of Le Monde D’Hermès just arrived. A bit bittersweet to see the beautiful clothes by Christophe Lemaire who left the house after a gorgeous SS15 show. Nathaniel Goldberg’s pictures are breathtaking, and I’m a huge fan of Camille Bidault Waddington’s styling.

Sadly, this image is too big for my scanner and I cannot find a digitized version online. My iPhone pic will have to suffice.

To See

Olive Kitteridge

Olive Kitterage This HBO film based on Elizabeth Strout’s novel (one of my all-time favorite authors) should be amazing. Starring Frances McDormand and Bill Murray, I will not miss this. The two-night miniseries airs 11/2 & 11/3.

‘Color Block’

WSJ. If you didn’t pick up a copy of WSJ. last weekend, fear not, you can still see this beautiful story online.

Gladiators are even better this year than last, and I want these from Valentino Haute Couture—strappy, but not overwhelming—perfection.

Glossier

Glossier

Beauty website Into The Gloss founder Emily Weiss has launched a line of  products called Glossier. After all the beauty product testing Weiss has done in the four years of helming ITG, I’m sure her own line will be effective. The packaging is really good too.

documentary filmmaker

Jennifer Ash Rudick

This profile was originally published in April 2013, but with ‘Iris’ screening at both the New York and Hamptons International Film Festivals this weekend, this is the perfect time to re-run it.  Congratulations Jennifer, ‘Iris’ is a fantastic, must-see film!!

Ben Franklin’s famous saying “you can do anything you set your mind to” describes Jennifer Ash Rudick to a tee.  A Palm Beach native and long time New York City resident, Jennifer’s busy life revolves around her two teenagers, an adorable eye-surgeon husband, a writing career, and now, documentary filmmaking. On her resumé: Editor of WWD/W‘s ‘Eye’ column, Town & Country magazine contributor and currently, a contributing editor at Veranda magazine. She also authored two books– Tropical Style: Private Palm Beach and The Expectant Father that sold over 900,000 copies. With our publishing connection, it’s no surprise that when we met years ago at our daughters’ barn on L.I., we instantly became friends. Ringside we would share our life stories on juggling work and family (not always with aplomb), and took turns carpooling five girls to the barn every day. On my KiC radar as a chic working mom, when Jennifer casually mentioned that she was making a documentary on fashion icon Iris Apfel, I begged her to be a profile.

‘The Inner Hebrides’

Holiday Magazine

I follow the stylist Clare Richardson on Instagram and she will often post a sneak peek of her shoots. After seeing pictures she put up from this story in The Scottish Issue of Holiday magazine, I decided to track it down. Can’t go wrong with Stella Tennant.

The Perfect Poncho

Club Monaco Every time I consider shelving my ponchos, I never do it—they are just so easy. Trying to shove bulky sweater sleeves into a jacket is a drag. A big thank you to Meenal Mistry of the WSJ for the heads-up on Club Monaco’s new capsule collection of  knitwear which is hand-knit in Peruvian yarns—right up my alley.

Right Off The Runway

Loewe Not only is this image from the Loewe SS15 campaign running right now in the fall magazines, I read somewhere that select pieces from Jonathan Anderson’s debut collection are already in the Loewe stores. Now that’s fast fashion.

Weekend Reading

VogueThe forecast says rain on Saturday and I have the perfect indoor activity—-going through magazines. The stack is almost as tall as my desk, which is daunting. October issues are my favorites because they show the real clothes we cannot wait to wear. Christy Turlington looks stunning on the Porter cover BTW.

The Ultimate Uniform

British Vogue

The Céline tunic dress and funnel neck top are my dream uniform—-so easy and chic; I’ve wanted this look since seeing it on the runway. As I predicted, my office being across the street from the Céline shop is hazardous to my wallet. On a side note—-the new Soho store is really gorgeous and definitely worth a visit.

This Is (Perhaps) The One

Marni My search for a structured bag continues and this one by Marni is the front-runner. I had the smaller version in blue for a bit, but it was too small.  However, the triple gusset makes it roomier than I expected. TBC

In Porter

Ambra Medda

Porter I’m inspired by the styling in this pic of Ambra Medda from the October issue of Porter. The long cardigan, belted print dress, structured bag, and polished-calf boots are all very much on my radar. Her hair too—-love that it’s done/undone. She looks pulled together, but not prim.

Catching up with

Amanda Ross

Amanda Ross I became friends with the stylist Amanda Ross when we worked together at Harper’s Bazaar (she was the market director) and profiled her in the early days of KIC. Amanda has enviable personal style—elegant uptown girl with a twist. She’s not a slave to trends and has perfected the art of mixing classic pieces with bohemian accessories culled from her global travels. Now, Amanda has taken the next step and designed a line of jewelry, and a fantastic fur hat inspired by her finds.

I caught up with the busy fashion stylist to hear about her projects.
