Calvin Klein Collection for Fall

This is one of my favorite Fall campaigns– the criss-cross back is really beautiful, and of course I love the block-heeled boots.

Field Trip



So, we went to Briermere Farms and each picked out a pie– raspberry peach, apple blackberry, chocolate cream, and raspberry plum. There are only slivers of the fruit pies left over. So yummy!

Something Pretty

Two weeks ago I posted on a pair of Isabel Marant wedge booties as the boot of the season. But for some reason, I have not yet bought them (I think I may prefer them in white, but that’s for another day). Yesterday’s post got me thinking about a more feminine silhouette. Perhaps these boots by Tabitha Simmons would be a better addition to my wardrobe.

Black Power in Vogue Spain

Vogue Spain has Doutzen Kroes on it’s September cover photographed by Tom Munro and styled by my old Vogue friend, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele. The simple black with major hair (and pale lip) is lovely and refreshingly sexy.

This is a woman who dresses for her man, something I think about as I consider fall trends. Outsized coats, grunge, etc. are looks I will take a pass on.

Coat Dilemma

Fall Coats

Coats are being delivered to stores at a furious pace and there’s an abundance of great options this season. I need a new coat/jacket, so I’m going to be thoughtful and proactive about what I want to avoid a late fall (when I will actually be wearing it) scramble.

Above are the four styles I am considering. I already have a number of duffel coats, but the Saint Laurent, especially since it is grey, would be great. However, I bought, and still love, a grey Miu Miu coat two seasons ago. A fur, although gorgeous, feels limited. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect peacoat for years and there are many good ones this fall. But in the end, I’m leaning toward a shearling, much like the Isabel Marant in the upper left.

I will let you know.

A win-win

While I’m singing W’s praises, I must add that the September cover of Cara Delevigne is a win-win in my book– a model with a pale lip, hooray!

Let’s Twist Again in W


I’ve always looked at W, but recently, I really like W. Stupidly, I tore out these pages from the September issue before I remembered that they are too big for my scanner (and I have a very large scanner). Malgosia’s hair in the image on the left is sublime.

A Touch of Grey

Not only do I love a grey top— a bag, bootie, hat, or earrings in the perfect neutral would make me happy too.

On My Mind

Isabel Marant in the WSJ.

Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant photographed by Angelo Pennetta for the September issue of the WSJ.

Summer is starting to wind down– the days are cooler and a bit shorter. The giant September issues will be stuffed into mailboxes soon, a true heralding of the impending fall season. I asked Kristina O’Neill, editor-in-chief of the WSJ. magazine, the date her big fashion issue is slated to drop (August 24th). Kristina offered KiC a sneak peek and sent this image of my favorite designer, Isabel Marant.

In the accompanying article, writer William van Meter chats with the designer about the flourishing Isabel Marant empire, her focus on her work rather than her fame, and the mass copying of her popular sneakers. Although I’ve been a hard-core Isabel Marant fan since 2010, many fashion insiders have been devotees of the French designer’s clothes for nearly 20 years.

And here’s why. Marant’s effortlessly chic aesthetic is imbued with her bohemian spirit. The seemingly laid-back, yet hard working cool-girl, Marant tells the WSJ. that she’s inspired by “how women in the street wear things”. This inspiration is perhaps in part the basis for her wildly desirable designs.

Diamonds in the sky

After what I’m guessing will be a long day at a horse show, we are going to see Maroon 5 at the Jones Beach amphitheater (we have a 13 year old daughter…). An added bonus will hopefully be the Perseid meteor shower expected tonight. Can’t imagine a better spot to view this cool celestial event.
