In The Wall Street Journal

Patricia Urquiola, Designer

WSJ A well-intentioned friend gave us new year’s cards with fortunes inside. Mine read “You couldn’t be less interesting, but you’re going to keep trying, right?”.  Huh?

I’ve been thinking about that fortune (a lot). The upshot is that it’s encouraged me to consider a wider range of women for KiC—women I find interesting, not just for their personal style. The Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola who was profiled in the WSJ this weekend is a good example. I’m fascinated by what she does, how she works, and what inspires her. It’s raining and I may pop in “Paris, Texas”, or pull out Proust for a reread.

Perhaps these interesting women will rub off on me (just kidding)! This is why I stopped reading my horoscope…

Burn

Diptyque & Izola Candles

I love a good tip and Kerry Diamond’s suggestion in the current issue of Cherry Bombe is tops.  No fireplace? No problem–Kerry recommends burning a Diptyque wood-scented candle. I am also a fan of Izola candles.

On My Mind

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

Céline

A few things in my wardrobe have real staying power, like these three above. I wear cashmere headscarves, Valentino Tango pumps, and Céline hobos so often, they’ve become my signature pieces. After a few winters of beanies, I’ve pulled out my scarves again (remember the one I’m wearing in the very first KiC post?); they feel like old friends.

Cool Collaboration

Joni Mitchell + Saint Laurent = Brilliant

Saint Laurent

The spring campaign collaborations just get better and better. The 71-year-old singer Joni Mitchell has partnered with Saint Laurent’s Music Project. Hedi Slimane photographed the folk singer in folk-inspired pieces from his SS15 collection for Saint Laurent. Brilliant.

Go Figure

Celine How is it that Céline never goes on sale yet, there are pieces from past seasons on Yoox and Overstock. Overstock, really?!?! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I came across a grey cashmere Céline coat at TJ Maxx, of all places. I don’t get it.

Naturally Kate

Kate Moss

Vogue Italia had Peter Lindbergh photograph a stripped-down Kate Moss, and the unretouched pictures are stunning. Clare Richardson’s styling, as always, is spot-on.

Pre-Fall

Sonia Rykiel

Sonia Rykiel In her second collection for Sonia Rykiel, Julie de Libran focused on the label’s history of making clothes that epitomize effortless Parisian chic. The frayed-edge denim reminds me of an amazing resort collection de Libran designed while at Louis Vuitton.

Beauty

Black Honey

Clinique

Lipstick is not my thing but, there are times when I want a little color. My go-to is Clinique’s Almost Lipstick in Black Honey–it’s more like a tint and the color doesn’t scream ‘big red lips’. I hear that it works with many different skin tones, too.

The Row

The row

The Row showed a beautiful pre-fall collection yesterday and these are my three favorite looks. I especially love the matching tunics and pants in muted colors and would wear the green version forever.

SS15 Campaign

Joan Didion, Céline Star

Céline Joan Didion

Céline has closed the circle by featuring author Joan Didion in the SS15 campaign. Vogue ran this image earlier today and it’s now flying around Instagram. Genius.

Pre-Fall

Lanvin

Lanvin

I’m not sure if I’ve ever posted on Lanvin but, I like a number of the looks in the pre-fall collection. The turtleneck, leather vest, and chunky necklaces caught my eye. I’m getting a Saint Laurent vibe.

Inspired By

Giovanna Battaglia

Giovanna Battaglia

Spring is on my mind and as much as I love all things ’70s, I’m looking farther afield for inspiration. One of my favorite modern-day style icons is the Italian fashion editor Giovanna Battaglia. I adore her ladylike-with-a-twist approach to dressing. My two takeaways from these pictures are: floral-inspired earrings and a good white dress. Both are on my spring list.

Gucci SS/15 Campaign

’70s Redux

Gucci

Malgosia Bela looks beautiful in the Gucci SS15 campaign photographed by Mert & Marcus. The ’70s-inspired suede coat, flared jeans, and retro bag above are fun. Like everyone, I’m curious to find out which designer is going to Gucci—my fingers are crossed that Hedi Slimane stays put at Saint Laurent, I really love what he’s doing there.

A Perennial Favorite

Tod's

Loafers were on my radar this fall, and I’m still loving them for spring. To lighten the look, I’ll pull out my Tod’s.  I’ve had this pair for years—the tan will be perfect with all of the white items that I keep loading into the shop.
