Staud Spring 2017

Everything – I mean, everything – from Staud‘s latest collection has me fantasizing about traveling to a remote Mediterranean island, doing nothing but going to the beach, shopping at local markets while wearing cotton seersucker dresses, tie front button ups, and ruffled satin crepe camisoles. And let’s not forget a enamel and leather turtle belt and …

Erdem Pre-Fall 2017

Perhaps it’s holiday party season and the sequined pencil skirts and dresses are wooing me in the right way. Or perhaps I’ve just finished watching the finale of Westworld and all the high collars and ladylike ruffles are giving me that slight Victorian, American West vibe that’s still loitering in my mind. What is certain, however, …

Amur Summer 2017

Fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world, after oil. Stew on that alarming fact for a second. So it makes sense that more and more designers are adapting a more conscious ethos, making environmentally aware changes to their sourcing methods and production procedures. Newcomer AMUR is another exciting label to enter the sustainable …

Sea Pre-Fall 2017

Bring on all the feminine frills! Monica Paolini and Sean Monahan, of Sea, are feeding my current obsession with ruffles with exaggerated bell sleeves, eyelet frills and puffy sleeves in crisp white cotton. I love how stripes are subtly incorporated into a basic color palette that includes ochre, navy and burgundy. And that cropped denim …

Rochas Pre-Fall 2017

“Style is right when there’s something wrong.” It is exactly this mantra that has made Rochas so playfully appealing since Alessandro Dell’Acqua took the helm in 2013. His pre-fall collection continues to find that quirky balance: modest yet sexy, sophisticated but whimsical, feminine albeit boyish. Standouts include the vibrant fur coats, off the shoulder brocade dresses (that actually managed …

Ulla Johnson Fall 2017

If there’s one thing I’ve learned as long time member of Ulla Johnson’s unofficial fan club, it’s: if you see it and love it, buy it. As we all know, the words “sold out” can incite the worst kind of feelings . . . the kind that are synonymous with remorse and FOMO. So with …

Marco De Vincenzo Pre-Fall 2017

Marco De Vincenzo knows how to bring the fun and funk. After all, he’s got over 10 years designing accessories at Fendi under his belt and continues to split his time between his eponymous label and the Italian luxury fashion house that gave him his start after graduating from design school. Needless to say, Marco’s accessories, like …

Masscob Spring 2017

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about my own personal style, it’s that the most simple things can feel the most special. This is why I’m smitten with Masscob, a label based in a small Spanish coastal town, La Coruña. Designers and partners Marga Massanet and Jacobo Cobián created their brand on a commitment to reviving artisanal values …

Stine Goya

There’s a new designer on my radar and her name is Stine Goya. The Danish designer studied prints at Central Saint Martins and her expertise is evident in her feminine, artfully printed collections. Her most recent collection, which launches this week, is full of delicately dotted dresses, printed silk separates, retro knits and quirky animal gilded blouses and blazers. I can’t wait …

Nanushka Summer 2017

Whenever I’m in a style rut, Nanushka is one of the few labels I visit for a much needed dose of inspiration. Her styling is always impeccable, not to mention pieces from each of her collections seem to transcend time and trends. I love that designer Sandra Sandor is carrying over the cropped wrap tops, high …
