…And tulips and daisies and lilies. Some people say the first day of spring is March 21st (and technically, they are right). Others say it’s when new buds have returned to the trees. But I say it’s when a fresh crop of blossoms hits the shelves by way of my favorite accessory.
I say this with confidence: When it comes to mastery of the craft and virtuosity of divine execution, Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo are unparalleled. In a most emotional Fall 2014 show, the pair made their inspiration felt by each and every onlooker: unconventional women deeply rooted in a moment of change.
Nobody understands the importance of showmanship as well as Karl Lagerfeld. For Fall 2014, he took us to market, and the once-in-a-lifetime Chanel Shopping Center experience was one that left all attendees reeling. Strolling into the Costco-sized big-box market made for a surreal moment, one that made me wonder to myself (and I was not alone!), “Where am I?”
Fall 2014 marked a most beautiful show from the duo – and one of Viktor Horsting’s and Rolf Snoeren’s most wearable to date! Last season’s flirty schoolgirl-inspired collection gave way to a more somber, studied Fall.
Face it – you’ve become permanently attached to your smart phone, tablet, and laptop. And by you, I mean me! It feels like my life would fall apart if any one of these things were to disappear or be damaged. Just like you would with anything that is so precious in your life, you make sure it’s safe and snuggled up in the most fabulous coverings.
Who says you need to be decked out in camouflage to inject a little bit of boot camp chic into your look? Sometimes subtle is the way to go, and sticking with a neutral palette of lush olive, earthy brown, rich hunter green, and all-grown-up mahogany will leave you anything but fatigued.
The first sunny day of the week gave way to an appropriately lighthearted mood at Chloé. The Fall 2014 Chloé girl is as breezy and effortless as ever, and more free-spirited than before. She doesn’t sweat anything; her attitude is chill because she’s confident in herself – and her innate sense of style, no over-the-top accessories or airbrushed face of makeup required.
