A.P.C.’s New Denim

I’ve always been a big fan of A.P.C.’s jeans thanks to my friend Mary who is a complete devotee. The house’s founder Jean Touitou got very creative with denim in the SS18 collection and the results are fantastic. After years of only using a stiff dark rinse, Touitou has added a bit of stretch to help with fit on pieces like the safari jacket. Every piece here, especially the vest and “ankle-skimming” coat, is on my to-try list.

“To The Garden”

Model Giedre Dukaukaite looks wonderful in this Vogue Australia story. Geidre’s been on my radar since the FW17 Valentino ad—I think she’s lovely.

The New Chloé

This is my favorite look from Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s debut collection for Chloé—the long, cutaway tunic is so chic. There are some fantastic printed dresses and leather coats, too.


It Items

Fall Uniform


It’s been a few years since I’ve wanted a pair of leather pants. Cropped with a little flare looks modern to my eye right now and these by Vince (here and here) tick all the boxes (The Row makes a similar pair). I don’t want jeans-style, I’m looking for a more streamlined pant—the perfect base for oversized shirts and sweaters like these from Totême. Tod’s loafers, Belgians, or Bass Weejuns, and these Céline earrings and I’d be in business.

WSJ. Magazine's Style & Tech Issue

“Fairy-Tale Looks for an Adventurous Fall”

The location for this October WSJ. Magazine story is so spectacular that at first I wasn’t sure if I should post it to kic or PALAIS. The two traditional country houses, located in the idyllic province of Hälsingland in central Sweden, are the perfect setting for the ornate ensembles inspired by Edie “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale of Grey Gardens fame. On newsstands October 7.

Clean & Simple

prada pumps

After returning a pair of shoes that I’d had my heart set on since I saw them on the runway way-back-when, I cruised the shoe department at Barneys. Like a beacon in a storm, these simple Prada pumps (here and here) looked so elegant and “right” amidst all the embellished statement shoes—the classics never go out of style.

It Items

JW Anderson + Uniqlo

This is quite possibly my favorite collaboration to date. Jonathan Anderson’s British heritage inspired collection for Uniqlo is packed with wardrobe staples at affordable prices.

They keep restocking so check back if your size was sold out.

Street Style

Cool Cords

Jo Ellison gets it right at MFW. I spy (Prada?) wide wale cords and would happily go there—such a great color. Céline did them in hot pink and dusty rose, which look great, too.

Bottega Veneta

The Bottega Veneta SS18 show was a parade of the most beautiful colors—a dusty pink belt is very sophisticated in Tomas Maier’s hands.
