The Missonis at Home | by Juergen Teller


A few years ago, photographer Juergen Teller shot the Missoni family at their home in Italy. Founders  Ottavio and Rosita Missoni, their daughter Angela and son Vittorio and grandchildren Margherita, Francesco, Theresa, Marco, Ottavio Jr and Giacomo, who were all wearing pieces from the Missoni ready-to-wear collection. The campaign was like a snapshot of an evening with the Missoni family. "I always think that our product has some extra value - an artisanal, traditional value - and I know that people often collect the pieces and keep them for a long time. The product is real so I wanted to … [Read more...]

FOLLOW | @shoesofnyc


If theres one thing New Yorkers love its their shoes. Since there is so much walking done in NY, shoes have to be comfortable, and since NYC is a capital of style- they also have to be cool.

There were coats placed over robes layered over dresses and trousers... sheer amazingness. Also, can we talk about that hair?! So good! Enjoy!   … [Read more...]

The collection and the whole presentation - were like an 80's meets 90's - post modern Memphis inspired Nickelodeon- meets TLC don't go chasing waterfalls - bliss. The color palette, it was divine. The collection, it was literally refreshing. Like popsicles on a blisteringly hot day. Like Sunkist at summer camp. Like a dip in a crisp cool pool. Like a Hockney. The colors were cool and hot and saturated to perfection. It was photoshoot dreamland, and I got to go behind the scenes. Earrings … [Read more...]
