My grandmother collected silk scarves, and rarely let me out of the house without one tied around my neck (which I would promptly remove and shove in my bag as soon as I was out of her sight). The older I get, however, the more I appreciate them. They truly are like art.
We always get drawn into buying scarves for their bright, beautiful prints, but the functionality is what makes them truly great investments. There’s no quicker way to update a tired jeans and tee outfit. I love to travel with scarves, too. I’m flying to Paris for Fashion Week, so I brought a large one on the plane to use as a blanket!
Spring 2014 marks a masterful collection from Derek Lam, one that’s impossibly covetable and wearable in equal measures. I spoke with him just 30 minutes before the show, and he gave me the lowdown on what inspired him.

My beloved Bryan Boy’s much-anticipated fur collab with Adrienne Landau is finally available! We first got a peek at the unisex collection at the start of NYFW, which after all of Fashion Month feels like an eternity ago. The timing couldn’t be better, though. With spring having sprung just yesterday, I’m already racking my brain […]
Bali Barret, the women’s universe artistic director at Hermès, and Commes de Garçons’ Rei Kawakubo came together to create Commes de Carrés, a collection of twelve limited edition scarves that combine the craftsmanship of Hermes’ silk carrés with the abstract patterns of CDG. The scarves are broken into two categories: black/white and colorful. The former […]
One of my dearest friends, the fabulous BryanBoy, is launching a fur accessories line with Adrienne Landau. What else?! Ever since I’ve known him, he’s been obsessed with two things: fur and diamonds. So it couldn’t be more appropriate that this collab consists of brightly colored unisex fur accessories. Adrienne first realized the partnership potential […]
