Linda’s Tastes, Obsessions and Fascinations…

I recently visited the new concept shop “Linda’s at Bergdorf’s”, curated by Bergdorf Goodman’s Fashion Director Linda Fargo and described as “Linda’s tastes, latest obsessions and fascinations”…
A most unique mix of designer, vintage, one of a kind, imaginative and original products surely make for a different fun, shopping experience!!

Copenhagen Cool…

The Copenhagen, Denmark, Fashion Week has been slowly gaining international attention..
Once again, the Scandinavian minimalism and Danish style were obvious in the Copenhagen Spring 2018 shows. A cool summer show outside the shows…

Denim Like A Supermodel…

Some of the world’s best known supermodels come together in a fantastic editorial shot by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz for the September issue of Vogue magazine, celebrating its 125th anniversary…
Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Joan Smalls, Tatjana Patitz, Amber Valetta, Carolyn Murphy, Linda Evangelista, Liu Wen and Fei Fei Sun look absolutely amazing in the season’s best denim fashion pieces. J’adore!!

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…

And we quote…

Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.

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…
