Bottega Veneta

The Lauren Clutch

Lauren Hutton walked in the sensational Bottega Veneta SS17 show as part of the house’s 50th anniversary celebration. Her namesake clutch, a rerelease of the one she carried in the 1980 film “American Gigolo”, is available in brick red and the trench is in, too.

Last week I previewed the Bottega Veneta FW17 collection and was happy to see that the Lauren clutch will be produced in a range of colors for fall upper left.

This BV pouch is also good.

British Vogue

‘Channel Surf’

Amber Valletta looks gorgeous on British Vogue‘s May cover and the accompanying story makes me yearn for summer. One of my all-time favorite models, I’m happy to see Amber in a number of fantastic editorials recently.

Initially Yours

The large Céline initial pendants from the FW17 collection above are on my list–they are very chic. The Monica Vinader rose gold pendants below are good graduation and birthday presents, especially for my girls’ friends.

A Very Cute A.P.C. Skirt

I love a good denim skirt and my all-time favorite is from A.P.C.- this one in cotton-chambray is very cute, too, and would be nice alternative to shorts. I’d pair it with a striped tee or white blouse.

Sunday in the Park

I spotted these two incredibly chic women in Central Park on Sunday– the green coat and gold Kelly bag are beyond.

Holiday Magazine

‘The World Can Wait’

Cameron Russell is one of my favorite models and she looks particularly stunning in this story by Lachlan Bailey for Holiday. Clare Richardson’s styling is pretty fab, too.


WSJ. Magazine

‘Lost Horizons’

I love the Giorgio Armani jacket and red Ralph Lauren sweater in this WSJ. Magazine story– perfect transition pieces.

The Perfect Spring Jacket

I am on the road visiting colleges with my daughter. Wish I had this Vince suede jacket, also here, and on sale here (thank you, Britta!), would be a nice alternative to my navy blazer, my uniform topper this week.

The Clasp Bag, Cont.

After seeing a number of show-goers carrying the Céline Clasp bag, I decided to pop into the shop and take a look at it. There’s no denying that it is lovely.

Transitioning into Spring

We are heading into blazer weather. Paired with a white shirt, Breton striped top, or light-weight turtleneck, a blazer is a timeless wardrobe staple and the perfect transition piece (think Emmanuelle Alt and Charlotte Casiraghi).  As a horseback riding family, we have no shortage of navy jackets on hand. On cool mornings I top off with a cashmere wrap then stow it away when the temp rises during the day. The top-handle bag updates this classic look.
