I am a dog person so it’s no surprise that I’m smitten with this story in August Vogue Paris. The entire issue is devoted to animals—chic!

My Music

Sounds of Summer

This has been a very good summer for music. Panorama is this weekend and I’m trying to go on Sunday to see Bishop Briggs, NiN, and Glass Animals. Lana Del Rey’s new album Lust for Life just dropped and the songs are definitely sunnier, yet still very personal. Del Rey even does a duet with Stevie Nicks, which is pretty good. However, here are my fave songs of summer 2017 that I currently have on repeat and sing along to: Arcade Fire’s Everything Now, Dig Down by Muse, The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness by The National, Sylvan Esso’s Die Young, Manchester Orchestra’s The Gold, Coldplay’s EP Kaleidescope, and of course the #1 Alt hit, Still Feel It by Portugal. The Man. Happy listening!

Shirin von Wulffen’s Favorite White Jeans

I’m on the hunt for new white jeans and asked a few of my uber stylish friends to weigh in with their favorites. Sixth up, Bastide co-founder Shirin von Wulffen:

“These are my favorite white Chanel jeans that I found years ago in a vintage store in St Tropez and always thought they were a bit short. Then I got pregnant and they did not fit me for about 4 years so I almost tossed them. Now they are back in my life and I am suddenly loving the cropped thing and high waist.” Shirin

Beauty

Tried and True

I’ve been buying and trying a number of light-weight foundations recently and I keep coming back to Charlotte Tilbury’s products—they are great on my dry skin and aren’t irritating. Until something knocks them off their pedestal, I’m sticking with what works.

Light Wonder, Wonder Glow, The Retoucher, Nude Kate lipstick.

FW17 Campaign

Bottega Veneta at Lee House 2

Tomas Maier is a huge architecture fan and chose Lee House 2 for the Bottega Veneta FW17 campaign location. Built in 1956 by famed architect John Black Lee who is often referred to as the sixth of the famous “Harvard five” architects, which included Philip Johnson, John M. Johansen, Marcel Breuer, Landis Gores, and Eliot Noyes. Lee House 2 was restored in the nineties by famed architect Toshiko Mori followed by a final restoration in 2010 by Kengo Kuma. Maier said to Keep it Chic “I love architecture, which is why we always shoot our campaigns in world-renowned buildings. Since Spring/Summer 2017 was shot in a Paul Rudolph house in an urban setting, we had to find a structure that would match that level, and I knew Lee House 2 would deliver. The fact that it snowed gave the models, the clothing and the architecture an additional dimension.”

“Mixed Messages”, the first video for the house in a series entitled “The Art of Collaboration”, stars Mariacarla Boscono, Eva Herzigova, and Grace Chen and is filmed at Lee House 2.

Cool Collaboration

Bella Freud x J Brand

The very cool collaboration between British designer Bella Freud and J Brand is just the right amount of retro chic—I already have my eye on two pairs of jeans. The jumpsuit unzipped over a classic Bella Freud word-print tee is nicely styled. Vogue has all the looks here.

Blazé Milano

The Blazé Milano motto, “Every cool girl is half boy” succinctly sums up the founders’ vision for their blazers. Corrada Rodriguez D’Acri, Delfina Pinardi, and Sole Torlonia—Elle Italia alums—launched their line in 2014 and have been gaining traction and fans ever since. The focus on details, especially the smiley pocket and piping, is the game changer that makes these blazers stand out.

The Edit

‘Hidden Depths’

Guinevere van Seenus looks amazing in this story from The EditI booked her often for Vogue and Helmut Lang’s shows, she is one of my all-time favorite models. In the accompanying article, Guinevere talks about her early days in the business and career longevity.

This issue of The Edit is devoted to “The new Black”,—my cotton LBDs have certainly been getting out and about this summer, too.

The Juliet Sleeve

Untitled-071617

Combine the Tudor-style sleeves on J.W. Anderson’s SS17 jackets + the Atlantique Ascoli peasant blouse = the perfect Tibi blouse. The longer length and price point are good, too.
