The Clasp Bag

_ARC0020

I’ve seen a few NYFW show attendees carrying the Céline top-handle Clasp bag and it looks lovely. Sadly, I just gave away a vintage version.

Coco Rouge

I’ve been cleaning up kic– deleting tons of outdated posts, etc, and I came across this story on Vanessa Traina’s essentials and the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick caught my eye. I’m going to Chanel PR on Monday to see a couture presentation and a bit of lipstick would be a good idea.

FW17 Collection

The New Calvin Klein

The highly anticipated Calvin Klein show opened with this red, white, and blue look–Raf Simons’ nod to American style is the theme of his debut collection for the house. Denim, cowboy boots, and quilts look fresh through the Belgian designer’s lens. I recommend watching the live stream of the show.

WSJ. Magazine

‘Back to Basics’

At breakfast with the editor of the WSJ. Magazine, she mentioned that I would love this story- how right she was. Trenches, white shirts, loafers, etc.- these classic items never get old in my book. Please look at the the entire portfolio, it’s terrific. ’70s Lauren Hutton, perhaps?

It Item

Classic Coach

We have been looking for a bag for my daughter for what feels like forever. She wants to be able to wear it both on her shoulder and cross body and it can’t be too boxy. When I was her age, I carried a Coach bucket in dark chocolate that I would still wear if I’d held on to it. Coach creative director Stuart Vevers has injected some much-needed energy into the soon-to-be 75-year-old brand. Yet, at the same time, I’m happy to see that the house reissued the classic saddle bag. The only problem is, which color?

WSJ. Magazine

‘The Unstoppable Yayoi Kusama’

With two new exhibitions up, the WSJ. Magazine visits with the busy 87 year old artist in her Tokyo studio. It’s a really good read .

Baby Blue

Pink is certainly the color for spring and I’m a big fan of blush. But, I’ve spied a few items in baby blue that are equally pretty without being too sweet. They’d look amazing with jeans and a white shirt.

I’m inspired by the colors in the Sies Marjan SS17 collection (the sweater above) and will be adding more items from the line to the kic shop.

Bottega Veneta bag, M.I.H. jeans, Loewe bag, Common Projects sneakers, Sies Marjan sweater.

Architectural Digest

‘Ode to Beauty’

The Paris pied-à-terre of the late Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani is in the March issue of Architectural Digest. The 17th-century prints in gilded frames and black floors are beyond chic.
