How To Tie

A Headscarf

A few readers asked how I wear a headscarf and the top left is my preferred style. Love these Hermès how-to cards.

Holiday Magazine

“Girl from North Country”

Stylist Géraldine Saglio used a bright headscarf on Julia Bergshoeff in Inez & Vinoodh’s story for the Danish issue of Holiday Magazine. I have my eye on a Gucci dark floral scarf—would be a nice fall tweak.

Films

Two To See

You’d have to be living under a rock to not know about the documentary Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold, which was released on Netflix yesterday. I’ve read mixed reviews but am eager to see it nonetheless. I may try to do a double feature and also watch Franca: Chaos & Creation, Francesco Carrozzini’s film about his mother the legendary Vogue Italia editor.

Vogue Paris

‘Femme Sous Influence’

The fifties-inspired structured bag is having quite a moment, especially in this November Vogue Paris story. I think it looks modern with jeans and an oversized sweater. BTW, the tee in that collage is getting rave reviews.

Holiday Magazine

The Danish Issue

The current issue of Holiday is all-about Denmark and I’m sure it’s packed with beautiful stories. Lachlan Bailey photographed Iselin Steiro as part of a bigger portfolio and the pictures are lovely—Clare Richardson’s styling is too.

Collaboration

Ines de la Fressange x Uniqlo

Ines de la Fressange’s shop in Paris is firmly on my radar these days and I love the pieces in her fall collaboration with Uniqlo. Sadly, by the time I  launched this post, the jacket was sold out in green. I’m sure with the high demand it will come back in stock. Also, this duffel coat has a higher wool content, a complaint on other versions from them.

T Magazine

‘What Lies Beneath’

A dress over trousers is one of my favorite looks and according to T Magazine it’s “the season’s sharpest silhouette.” Monochrome is the way to go in my book. This is a Louis Vuitton top over an Hermès dress and trousers—so chic.

Cookbooks

Ottolenghi

In a moment of synchronicity, my daughter is going vegan and I got an email from my local bookshop, Locust Valley Bookstore, announcing the new Ottolenghi cookbook, Sweet. I’ve been meaning to pick up one of the London chef’s cookbooks and the time is now—the vegetarian recipes are said to be delicious.

If you do not have a local bookstore to support, all are available on Amazon.

Insta-Grab

Linda Wright Inspired

I follow Paris-based Linda Wright on Instagram and am besotted with her personal style. Born in Texas, the Ralph Lauren alum has lived in Paris for 38 years and has the shop Crimson, which sells the most beautiful cashmere ponchos.

But it’s her uniform of jeans (Dior above), cashmere sweaters, little blazers, and loafers or sneakers that keeps me checking her feed daily.

Art

MoMA’s Moment

There are two exhibitions at MoMA on my must-see list—Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait  “explores the prints, books, and creative process of the celebrated sculptor” and Items: Is Fashion Modern?  “explores the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today.” The Modern Matinees series of John Cassevetes’ films looks great, too. I may not wait for a rainy day to go.
