  • A Visit to the Pollock-Krasner Studio…

    Visiting the Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) and Lee Krasner (1908-1984) house and studio in the woods of Springs, in East Hampton, was a very special and touching experience. I have always admired Pollock’s and Krasner’s work, but experiencing the place where so much of their art was created, was so very moving… The couple moved there from New York trying to find a “healing place” from Pollock’s struggle with depression and alcoholism. In this small studio, full of beautiful light, in this secluded area of East Hampton, some of Pollock’s best Abstract Expressionist pieces were created. After his death, Krasener continued her amazing work here as well. To walk over the paint-splattered studio floor where Pollock’s footprints are still visible, surrounded by the silence and stillness of the woods… sooo beautifully inspiring and emotional!!
    Will post about the residence in a future post…

  • The Fascinating Dover Street Market…

    Coming from the visionary mind of Rei Kawakubo, the display installations in the Dover Street Market stores,  Comme des Garçons designer’s multi brand emporium must be no less than extraordinary!!
    A mix of art and fashion, they never cease to amaze me. Quoting Kawakubo: “An ongoing atmosphere of beautiful chaos; the mixing up and coming together of different kindred souls who all share a strong personal vision.” A fascinating beautiful chaos!!

  • Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza…

    Love these stunning photographs by Jamie Hawkesworth for Loewe’s collaboration with legendary Ibiza store Paula’s.
    Shot in the store’s founder home in the mountains of Santa Ines, the capsule collection represents what Paula’s is known for, “harmony, exuberance and freedom”, as well as the “fun, art and glamour” of the Ibizan way of life..

  • The Fall Collections with Artist Conie Vallese…

    I am so much looking forward to the first fall fashion editorials, as summer is slowly winding down…
    Love this WSJ Magazine spread featuring Argentinian artist Conie Vallese; the “sculptural minimalism” fashions and the beautiful bright shades of red feel exciting and new. I have also included  photos of some of Vallese’s artwork, they seem to blend in sooo beautifully.  J’adore!!

  • Black Swan Antiques…

    What I love most about traveling is the thrill of discovering places that have long been there and you have not been aware of…
    Black Swan Antiques in Sag Harbor was such a discovery!! It’s like going on a treasure hunt in this wonder of a store full to the brim with oil paintings, furniture, antique mannequins, “Americana” folk-art, sea-inspired pieces, vintage signs and  decorative items and sooo much more!!  Every corner with an exciting, inspiring surprise . This has been a true Sag-Harbor experience that is now on our “to return” list when in the Hamptons…

  • Denim on Denim…

    Denim reimagined, updated, redone…
    The classic, high rise, rigid,  straight, true denim inspired by the forever Levi’s 501 is the new cool. Designers like Demna Gvasalia for Vetements and Raf Simons for Calvin Klein are now the masters of this trend! Love this Vogue China editorial; denim on denim, the new contemporary cool… J’adore!!

    Just incredible how emojis and emoticons are such an important part of our daily communication! Who would have thought that possible just some years ago!!  Love this cool, over the top fashion editorial by photographer Jamie Nelson. Great photos, bold and fun!!

  • La Perla…

    La Perla… it had been on my wish list way too long;  a visit to La Perla. This was the right moment. Secluded in the heart of Old San Juan for so many reasons, a community that is slowly opening up!! Visionary community leaders like Yashira Gómez and Coco, which I was so happy to meet, will surely see that it happens!!

  • We Should All Be Feminists…

    I love and always find so much inspiration in the Dior magazines… I especially looooved issue No. 18, “We Should All Be Feminists”, with the introduction of Maria Grazia Chiuri as Dior’s first woman designer and current creative director. Her “We Should All Be Feminists” slogan and J’Adior logo from her first collection have been incredible hits!!
    The photographs of Laetitia Casta  in this issue are just dreamy… Enjoy!!

  • One Kings Lane Southampton…

    One of the perks of visiting The Hamptons during the summer months is discovering the great stores that “Pop-Up” just for the season. Loved the online home decor and interior design retailer One Kings Lane first ever physical store opened in Southampton! Being in the Hamptons, it has a lovely beach, relaxed style,  just stunning! And such an inspiring merchandising and visual design!!

  • Seated Ballerina…

    We were soooo lucky to see this amazing art installation on our last trip to New York;  such a great surprise!!
    “Seated Ballerina” by Jeff Koons, the art installation in Rockefeller Center was such a breathtaking piece to see and  experience. At 45 feet high, the inflatable sculpture is Koons contemporary interpretation of the mythological goddess Venus. A prodigious, beautiful art work that makes you stand and stare in awe!!

  • The Chic Jean…

    Love the evolution of the jean… going back to the beginning, how it all started; the rigid jean. Non stretch, high waisted, classic jeans are the new chic, and I’m loving it!! A chic, cool and classic look; just perfection in my book!!  J’adore!!

  • Regal East Hampton…

    We recently visited the lovely town of East Hampton, called “America’s most beautiful village” discovering and revisiting some of the spectacular places to see around town..
    The village of East Hampton, settled in the 1660s, was one of America’s first English settlements, and still maintains the mix of history and grandeur that makes it so unique and special. Love, love the impressive, regal, elegant white houses you can find in almost every street with impeccable lawns and the most lovely landscaping you can ever imagine; just a dream!!
