  • 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!!

  • 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!!

  • 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!!

  • 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!!

  • Delpozo’s “Demi Couture”…

    Almost Couture.. Josep Font collections for Delpozo have been described as “demi-couture”, as close to Haute Couture as you can get. His Resort 2018 collection is clear proof of his amazing talent!!  Voluminous, architectural, sculptural shapes in bright, fluorescent hues, contrasting with soft, floaty, drapey, ethereal dresses. True “demi-couture” and so beautiful!!

  • Fashion Flora…

    Beautiful works by some of the most important international illustrators are displayed in Nick Knight and Showstudio’s Fashion Flora Exhibition in London.
    It has been described as “an explorative look at the use of flowers as a motif in fashion throughout the decades” Artists were inspired by works of some of fashion’s iconic designers, such as Alexander McQueen, Dior and Dries Van Noten, just to name a few. Some of the works and illustrations are breathtakingly beautiful!!   The flowers exhibited just amazing!! Wish I could see this personally… J’adore!

  • Ellery…

    I have been following the work of Australian designer Kym Ellery, and just love what I see in her Resort 2018 collection…
    Her innovative cuts, impeccable tailoring and seventies-inspired styles have made the Ellery collection a much coveted name for international fashionistas. So modern, fresh and new… J’adore!!

  • The Impeccable Narciso Rodríguez…

    The Resort 2018 collection by Narciso Rodríguez is sooo beautiful !!
    The minimalist, clean vision of pure lines and shapes Narciso Rodríguez is so well known for is all here, but what has been called by WWD “modernist couture references” of voluminous asymmetric skirts make this collection totally fresh looking and unique. The blush accent color is a win win as well… J’adore!!

  • Linda’s @ Bergdorf’s…

    Love these Bergdorf’s windows by Donald Robertson on the launch of Linda Fargo’s concept store in the iconic New York retailer.. As Fashion Director for Bergdorf Goodman, the shop will feature Fargo’s “tastes, latest obsessions and fascinations”.
    Will post photos of the shop soon… keep posted!!

  • Gucci’s Renaissance Revival…

    Alessandro Michele had a Renaissance revival for the Gucci Resort 2018 collection…
    Presented in the amazingly beautiful Palazzo Pitti in Florence, models walked in front of paintings by Botticelli, Velazquez, Titian, Rubens… walking through some of the most opulent, sumptuous, splendid galleries.
    Paisley and floral patterns, velvet, brocade, lace, pearls, leopard prints, classical gilded wreaths… it was all there. It was clearly a Gucci Renaissance excess; and it was sooo great!!

    The retro ’50s- ’60s trend seen in the Miu Miu  Spring-Summer collection is the clear inspiration for this Marie Claire France editorial “Piscine Privée”
    High waisted bathing suits and shorts, retro hues and prints, bathing suit silhouettes that remind us of Esther Williams..  even the flower embellished swim caps… the colors are so beautiful and refreshing.. J’adore!!

  • The Drifter…
