Louis Vuitton: Boots, Bags, & Sneakers

I texted my friend attending the Louis Vuitton FW22 show and asked her to steal the red boots for me. Actually, when I cast the LV show there were security guards backstage because folks would walk off with all sorts of stuff. But, I digress — the boots, bags, and sneakers are beyond fantastic and top my FW22 wish list.

Beige Days Ahead

I need to shelve my black parka asap and get back into beige, tan, khaki, and cream. I’m currently figuring out how to style the Khaite Sukey harness bottom left — Leonie Hanne nailed it with the leather pants and trench. I, also, have it in black, which I’ll most likely layer over a black dress.

Paris Collections

Hermès

Lots of beautiful clothes in the Hermès FW22 collection. The olive and brown looks are my favorite passage in this subdued show. Hermès has temporarily closed all of its Russian stores — bravo!

On My Inspiration Board

Bits of Black

These images, from Paris fashion week, are on my inspiration board:  I’m going to pull out my Chloé neckerchief à la Suzanne Koller’s — so chic. The cropped shirt with the midi-length leather skirt is a beautiful bit of styling – the high waist makes it work. And, last month I was included in an article in the WSJ titled How to revamp your wardrobe without buying anything ‘new’ where I spoke about the importance of maintaining clothes and accessories. I mentioned that I replaced the gold buttons on a floor-length, black coat with simple black ones and how I now wear said coat all the time. The stunning Courrèges coat above reminded me of this.

March Vogue France

‘Miss Bretagne’

Hopefully, we are edging toward trench season. This image, from March Vogue France, is on my inspiration board — the belt and proportions are very becoming.

Saint Laurent: Breathtaking

The sensational Saint Laurent FW22 show took my breath away. The first time in a long time that I wish I’d been in the audience.  The venue alone makes the film a must-watch. I’m currently atop a beautiful mountain and cannot wait to read the reviews tonight.

February/March Issue of Vogue UA

‘Urban Dictionary’

Vogue UA is is one of my favorite editions in the Vogue family. It’s a bit more cutting edge and less commercial, which I appreciate. As I flipped through the recent February/March issue, my heart broke thinking about the Ukranians who make this incredible magazine. All Ukranians are in my prayers.

Jil Sander

Nicole Phelps’ review of the Jil Sander FW22 collection for Vogue is spot-on —  “(i)n a season when designers are targeting Gen-Z, Jil Sander’s Lucie and Luke Meier made clothes for grown-ups.”  Many of the looks have a decidedly ’60s vibe, which in the Meiers’ hands is not overdone. The three floor-length guipure lace dresses are standouts. This elegant collection is worth a look.

Books

Random Reads

I’ve been reading A LOT, which is good because I’m working my way through numerous stacks of books. Above are a few random titles on my waning-days-of-winter list: The recently released Entertaining in Style: Nancy Astor and Nancy Lancaster looks amazing and not just another ho-hum guide to tablescapes and floral arrangements. A longtime i-D magazine fan, i-D: Wink and Smile!: The First Forty Years is out April 5. Lucy Foley’s new novel, The Paris Apartment, is most likely a fun read. And, my friend Dina learned of photographer Christy Bush’s book, Familiar, on The English Room and sent me the link – right up my alley.
