‘In the Swing of Things’ from T Travel

I love this story from the T magazine travel issue. Oversized totes, want-to-wear-now jewelry, and the sleeves perfectly pushed up; this is old school styling at it’s best.

Obsession

There are a lot of great capes out there, but this military-style one in navy wool by Chloé would be a workhorse in my wardrobe. I wonder what it looks like completely unzipped & unsnapped…

The fashion shows are over and my eye needs to focus on other things for a bit. The exhibition, “Robert Motherwell: Early Collages” at the Guggenheim, fits the bill.

‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ in W

Natural, non blow-dried, hair is on my radar, and was big on the fw13 runways. I’m inspired by this funny piece in W, and although I do my own styling, I’m going to take the dryer-less challenge.

To avoid total withdrawal, I’ll let my hair air-dry just on the weekends. It’s raining today, perfect time to start.

Two of my favorite sites, TNMA and Mark D. Sikes, posted on bikes this week, truly the chicest way to get around town. I love the blue ones we have in NYC, but this red Martone is beyond. Thanks for the inspiration A & M!

I want to wear this now

Untitled-10032013

One of my go-to accessories right now, which I profiled in my fall uniform, is the Isabel Marant necklace.  So, when I saw wrap-around necklaces at Valentino, I had to put another look together. You know I’m into fringe and tunic-style dresses, now loafers (I’m inspired by Malgosia’s) are edging their way to the top of my run-around shoe list.

Saint Laurent bracelet, Isabel Marant dress here and here, Isabel Marant necklace, Tod’s loafer, Bottega Veneta clutch.

All Grey

Everything about this outfit works for me, especially the T by Alexander Wang skirt. I love the Sacai ss14 look below too.

It’s in the details

Like many of you, I have gone through the Valentino show images a number of times. It’s not just the unbelievable fabrics and embroidery that set this show apart, it’s also the leather espadrilles, pinky rings, fringed totes, etc., that are completely covetable.

I want every look from Valentino

I was going to post on the Valentino show this morning, but got sidetracked by Marc’s news and took a unintended stroll down memory lane– sorry.

There was a lot to love in this superb collection from the Valentino team. I may even go long.

Fringe on the bags and capes, hello?!?!

These looks, all black with gold chokers, are on my list. Which says a lot because I haven’t even bought 5 things for fall yet! Maybe I’ll just carryover 2 items to spring, Preston’s new Math…

End of an era

sprouse-vuitton

Photographed by Terry Richardson for Harper’s Bazaar

Before I started KiC, I was a casting director. I booked the models for Vogue for 10 years until I decided it was time to try show casting.

One of my first shows was Louis Vuitton with Marc. It was probably his 4th season with the house. Marc and I had known each other since college having spent a very fun (and blisteringly hot) summer in Paris studying together. When I arrived at the Vuitton atelier to start the SS01 casting I was told I would be sharing a table with Marc’s friend Stephen, who was also working on the show. For a week I sorted through model cards and did countless go-sees, while next to me, Stephen Sprouse painted graffiti on an enormous stack of LV canvas bags. And the rest is history.

Good luck Marc.

I’ve been thinking about how to shake up my run-around uniform and am inspired by these three women.

If the rumors are true…

That Marc may be ready to leave and Nicolas Ghesquiere may come in… Very interesting indeed!

I love mine too

Yep, I like the fringe bag at Céline in theory; looks a bit difficult to carry…

Show Status: Céline

Here are two looks I like from the Céline show. I understand Phoebe’s wanting to move in a new direction, however, the graffiti printed pieces don’t work for me.
