  • Mode à Venise…

  • The Timeless Issue…

    Love these covers of Vogue Italia’s October “The Timeless” issue, featuring all time favorite model Lauren Hutton…
    Quoting photographer Steven Klein: “A huge reason why I wanted to shoot the cover of the “Age Issue” was to be able to show a new take on how a woman over 70 could look. I was so excited to shoot Lauren Hutton for the cover. She is 74 and so vibrant and sexy. She also embraces her age. It’s important that a cover be more than just a photography; it needs to reflect our times and challenge and inspire”. Great quote for a great, inspiring issue!!

  • 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!!
