THE SHOPPING BUZZ

Lulu Frost necklace MO, Eddie Borgo bracelet, Marni clutch, Marni top, Giambattista Valli trousers,
 Stella McCartney top, Rodarte skirt, Hermes clutch, Valextra bracelet, Sophia Webster heeled sandals

If you are a real pink shade lover, than you should know you can't ever go wrong if you associate it with gray and ivoire. End even if today, at the office I am wearing pink Petit bateau shirt, Cerruti denim and Converse sneaker, I still find these two ensembles truly irresistible.

STYLE AND FUNCTION. LETS' TALK CLEAN.

The Laundress, Denim wash and Fabric fresh

Is the buzz worth name in the cleaning/super fashionable industry and is not destined only to control freaks such as I am. (Yes, I am obsessed with order and I am prod to say that this is a healthy habit I luckily inherited from my grandmother).
The Laundress is the name I have in my mind and thinking writing about for a very long time. The two ladies that found it, Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Boyd were not always referred as soap mavens. 
Both of them were involved in the fashion industry but confronted with the frustration of replacing prematurely worn items, they decided to take the matter into their own hands. 
Today, they managed to redefine the world of fabric care and are the owners of a label that not only prides itself with a huge range of detergents, fabric care and home-cleaning products but above all, with products that are toxin-free. And if you pay attention to the ingredients list, you will notice that they are also color safe, cruelty-free, perfect even for the most precious cashmere, allergen and gluten-free.

BEAUTY CUES. NEWS FROM DIPTYQUE.


The nice people from Beautik asked me a few days ago to pay a visit to their gorgeous store and treat myself with some olfactory and beauty novelties. For the moment I will postpone the news about the huge range of perfumes signed Tom Ford that they recently received and I will stop to the amazing range of creams from diptyque paris that they have.
Is an universal truth that a good moisturizer makes the difference. If an apple a day keep the doctor away, then a moisturizer twice a day most certainly will keep the wrinkles away. 
Speaking of that, I do not know if they had that in mind when they gave me lots of products to test from Diptyque but I have to admit (as usual) that diptyque never let's me down. This week is dedicated to the Eau Rose Body Veil. Next week is Voile Satin's turn.

THE DREAM BUY

Curved Chrome Bar Clutch in Tobacco/Black

People tend to think that Proenza Schouler is all about fashion. In one of their most recent interviews, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez talked about their brand as a result of their personal experience. Having said that, probably one great experience inspired the two designers to create this outstanding Chrome Bar Clutch, which looks so good in both Stone Off white and Tobacco Black.
Therefore, I had to take them both in order to illustrate best this week's dream buy.

TAGGED. THE STYLE DETAIL.


Is a tricky thing choosing the bracelet that truly defines the season. On one hand, Chloe takes the wrist sophistication to a new level but Celine gives it a whole new meaning. Bold and yet sophisticated at the same time, they reflect the Celine woman and we all know by now that Celine = Phoebe.
And we all love Phoebe.

THE SHOPPING BUZZ

Hermes bag and collier, Saint Laurent pumps, Proenza Schouler skirt and dress,

One can say many things about orange yet stating that this is the color of this Spring should be on top of the list. Until now, was not easy-to-wear but this time around things changed. One look at Proenza and Lanvin,  and you'll realize why this color plays such an important role this season.

FROM THE BOOKSHELF


He was born in Romania, he lived in Paris and he defined the modern art. Constantin Brancusi is his name and if Americans called him eccentric at the time his works of art were praised in the Big Apple, I still call him out of this world.
Talking about Brancusi, a new book filled with stunning images and written by Jerome Neutres is available  as we speak: "Bancusi New York 1913-2013".

OFF THE RUNWAY. NINA RICCI FW 14.


Changes are always good according to Suzy Menkes. One can thing about that when watching the latest FW 14 collection signed Peter Copping for Nina Ricci. The former Louis Vuitton director and now artistic director at the Parisian label pays homage to the Ricci legacy and focuses his entire attention on four major references: femininity, sensuality, grace and silhouette.
Make no mistake: the ultra-feminine garments are build and fit for the ultimate modern wardrobe.

One of the most eye-catching accessory of the season wears the same insouciant attitude as the brand that knows all about French chicness. Chloe that is. As all the great thing that come this summer, gold and transparency are favored and checked by the super talented Clare Waight Keller.

THE SHOPPING BUZZ

J.Mendel dress, Daniel Villegas earrings, Eddie Borgo ring, Gianvito Rossi boots,
 J.Mendel coat, Rochas bag

Lately french labels have chosen to go on the unwalked path and luckily no one seems to complain about it. Luxe femininity and effortless elegance is something J.Mendel is well familiar with but the Fall 2014 collection available now at  Moda Operandi caries with itself an unexpected factor.
No wonder a signature dress from the luxury fashion house can be the perfect starting point of one powerful outfit.
