Another day, another set of designers added to the NET-A-PORTER sale! Now pieces you’ve been eyeing all season from Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler, and Thakoon are discounted up to 50% off. Which are you most excited for? Wait, don’t answer – just go ahead and shop the sale!
Just one more week until Chanel unveils the 2013/14 Métiers d’Art collection in my adopted hometown! As excited as I am for the show, I’m just as thrilled to see Karl Lagerfeld’s new film The Return. It features Geraldine Chaplin as Coco Chanel, a role that according to Karl required her to be mean, as Coco had a mean streak herself.
Don’t get bogged down by all the red velvet and emerald sparkle that abounds this time of year. There’s no need to get dressed up like a Christmas tree for the season’s cocktail fetes! Instead, make a statement courtesy of eye-catching (not eye-assaulting) pieces with subtle yet strong details.
Calf hair is as luxe as any skin out there – and it’s the exotic you don’t have to feel guilty about (unless you’re an animal lover, that is). Tactile and touchable, soft but not too plush: I love the unique texture, especially as winter approaches and smooth leather and suede start to look commonplace.
