Annie Larson, the brains behind this adorable knitwear company, ALL Knitwear, hand knits each piece on a made to order basis in her studio in Brooklyn.  Larson had never knit anything before buying her Brother KH 910—a 1980s knitting machine. “I was really attracted to it. I had never seen anything like it before. After seeing how the machine knit patterns, the needles moving backward and forward selecting different yarns, I was completely sold! The first few things I ever knit were miniature stockings, dishtowels, and eventually a cardigan." Her patterns are often high-contrast, in classic … [Read more...]

Brand You Need to Know | The Arrivals NYC

12230866_396684983859551_459892625_n

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...]

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...]

The Military Coat.

5--01-pfashionwstyle105

I've always had a place in my heart for the military coat. In my early 20s I had a white military inspired trench from Zara, and damn if I didn't love that coat. Anyway, I find that khaki is a universally flattering color, even though it may not be conventionally attractive alone. It looks good on every skin tone and hair type - At first I was going to say blonds look especially good in khaki, but I'm olive skinned and I like it on me, and every girl I know looks great in it. 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...]
