5 Fav Looks: Lela Rose

Lela Rose Spring / Summer 2015 collection

Lela Rose is an always one of our go-to designers for shoots, be it the young romantic, Manhattan dreamer, or natural beauty. Her pieces make the best ladylike date outfits with a whimsical twist, leaving you feeling, in one word: pretty. This season’s collection the designs were a modernization of a vintage kimono, shown through structured folding and wrapped bodice cut-outs. There is such a beautiful lifestyle to the Lela Rose woman, and you know wherever she’s going, I want to go too…

5 Fav Looks: Tadashi Shoji

Tadashi Shoji Spring / Summer 2015 collection

Fashion has a way of being transportive. Sunday we were on an adventurous trek around the globe with Jill Stuart, earlier today Prabal took us to Nepal, and now, Tadashi Shoji has us lost in the romance of Venice. Traveling is so important to open our minds and hearts. I know for me, traveling has changed my life and way of thinking. It’s no wonder so many designers take inspiration from places beyond our own everyday boundaries and then reinterpret these sights, smells, colors, experiences and emotions in their work so that we may all experience it with them. So here we are, sitting on the Grand Canal in Venice with Mr. Shoji, watching the magnificent Ca’ d’Oro reflecting off the water like the brush stokes of a Monet…

5 Fav Looks: Prabal Gurung

Prabal Gurung's Spring / Summer 2014 collection

I always love Prabal Gurung’s showmanship. There is a beauty beyond the clothing, a psychology to his army of women marching toward the light. His spring collection continues into those depths through layers and folds, textures and patterns that lead your eye endlessly in a dance inspired by the natural beauty of the Nepalese sky and spirituality of the Himalayas. Through his designs may at first glance look very feminine with the flick of ostrich feathers or sweep of chiffon, at closer examination there is a strength to the Gurung girl, seen through her razor backs, belting details or harness like bodices.  According to Prabal, this is how he plays on the juxtaposition of traditional Nepalese dressing from childhood memories and androgynous American sportswear that lives outside his New York City studio walls today.

5 Fav Looks: Jill Stuart

Jill Stuart spring / summer 2015 collection

I loved the earthy vibe of Jill Stuart‘s spring collection- it’s the kind of look I imagine wandering around dusty old souks or adventuring around South America in. There is something more elevated and intelligent about the woman who will wear these pieces – she wants to be put together but remain effortless, chic but comfortable. She doesn’t need to show you every curve of her figure because her beauty is within. Swept away in the sandy color palette I could forever travel the world in these five pieces…
