Brand You Need to Know | The Arrivals NYC


I'm in love with this brand's aesthetic and over all vibe. It's so clean and architectural, sculptural, and all about lines. Which is not surprising, because The Arrivals NYC was created by former Architect, Jeff Johnson, and Kal Vepuri, (both began with ZERO experience in the fashion industry). The brand's mission is to "connect the creative community through collaborative design and innovation." Their passion for balanced design and craftsmanship comes through in their products. Plus everything is reasonably priced - for very well made outerwear, that is. Their Instagram page is pretty … [Read more...]

Bergdorf Goodman’s Holiday Windows.


Not gonna lie, I've been totally swept away by the holiday spirit in NYC this season. It's really magical around midtown this time of year. Yesterday there was an article about the holiday Windows in the NY Times but I was already planning on writing about these, because I walked by this weekend- and oh wow. Maybe the best windows I've ever seen. The article talked about how important the windows are to department store sales, and what stores do to attract both tourists and convert them into customers. The brains behind the Bergdorf windows, Linda Fargo and David Hoey, teamed up with … [Read more...]

Anyway, I find that khaki is a universally flattering color, even though it may not be conventionally attractive alone.

It has become a neutral, like black, gray jean, or leopard. Theres two types of ways to pull off this trend- the army … [Read more...]

Lee Radziwill Design and Style Icon

Jackie Kennedy and Lee Radziwill in Ravello, Italy, 1962

If you haven't read T Magazine's interview with Lee Radziwill yet, I highly recommend it. For those who don't know - Lee Radziwill is the younger sister of former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy. Lee and Jacqueline were born into a life of luxury, summering in the Hamptons and hobnobbing with the American upper class. Soon Lee was married a Polish prince, making her a European Princess. Her sister was first lady of the United States, and they both fascinated the American public. (Her daughter in law is Carole Radziwill of NY housewives fame - Lee famously gave her that amazing Le Tigre sofa - … [Read more...]

Exploring Dover Street Market.


COMME des GARCONS  store in New York is located in a 103-year old building in Murray Hill which used to be the New York School of Applied Design for Women and Touro College. Dover Street Market is seven levels of crazy town, kind of like the fashion world version of Alice in Wonderland. Rei Kawakubo, the brilliant designer behind Commes des Garçons, has designed the store to have feature mini stores within the store giving each brand a small piece of real estate that they can design however they please.  Looking to make the store a showplace for the work of artists with strong, often … [Read more...]
