The new collection from Zero + Maria Cornejo perfectly blends the technical and the natural, juxtaposing opposite proportions – taking silhouettes that almost feel antique and turning them ultra modern. Mixing texture and stripes, vivid jewel colors and pixilated iPhone prints on oversized outerwear in superfine alpaca and long-haired shearling. Evening wear struck a balance [...]
Way better than an over-priced set-menu restaurant meal, I spent last night with my husband at the New Museum for the opening of the 2012 triennial: The Ungovernables. The new show features thirty-four artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives—totaling over fifty participants—born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the [...]
It’s always amazing to see how Scott Sternberg threads together his inspirations and ideas through three collections presented back to back in one show for Band of Outsiders. His sense of theatricality and flair for dramatic staging always heightens the experience. The southwestern setting was the perfect backdrop for the earthy, clay and sunset tones [...]
Rushing over to Milk Studios in between my entree and dessert at the Standard Grill, I was immediately consumed by all things Suno. Max and Erin have a way of creating an all encompassing world of swirling stripes, blown-out florals, over sized outerwear and layer upon layer of magical mix and match prints. They make [...]
Let’s hear it for the boys! Bowing just hours after the birth of Marcus’s third baby, Rag&Bone delivered two of the best line-ups ever for their men’s and women’s collections on Friday. Gorgeous greys and greens, blanket stripes and bronze metallics, floral jacquards and oversized ombre herringbone wool coats. Long duster style coats for him [...]
There’s no one that does knits better than M. Patmos. And when those beautifully constructed knits meet electric color combos I’m in cashmere heaven. Color-blocking, cut-aways, stripes and just a touch of fur make this cozy collection one every Brooklyn girl will be clamoring for when the temperature drops next fall.
Ever since Gretchen Jones told me all about how to smudge spirits from my house with sage and chants I have had a soft spot for this fellow turquoise-loving-western girl. I am obsessed with her long and layered, dreamy watercolor-meets-tribal print collection for fall. Now if I could just convince my mom to hand over [...]
There was a serious mod-meets-lady mood happening at Whit’s 60s inspired collection for fall. I loved the cropped ikat trousers, bold striped sweater, ombre shift mini-dress, lux bronze metallics and the other-worldly outer space column gown. Wool shorts with a preppy polka dot button-down and crew neck sweater and a classic camel cropped sleeve wool [...]
Fashion week always kicks off with Bird favorite Rachel Comey. For fall I am loving her refined neural color palette featuring lots of graphic black and white with shots of silver and pops of persimmon. Each outfit complete with perfect pumps (paired with peek-a-boo polka dot socks) and classic Comey ankle boots of course!
