Agnona jumpsuit

No party like a NEY party and no shopping buzz like the one dedicated to this event.
Centered stage, the requested black silver and gold are a must and the pieces to covet are signed by Givenchy, Lanvin, Agnona and Bochic.
2014 has been the year of statement pieces and simple sophistication so why not continue the tradition?

TODAY'S INSPIRATION

FORM AND FUNCTION


Easy to incorporate in any sophisticated decor, crafted from sycamore and fiddle back douka, the Monticello humidor by Linley proves to be not only an exceptional humidor but also the shortest path towards the ultimate smoking experience.
 So here's to the good conversation, contemplation, or celebration, three of the reasons for which men usually decide to smoke a cigar.

BEAUTY CUES. ON THE FABULIST.



The perfect winter fragrance, a spicy oriental with amber, rose and Ylang-ylang as middle notes, 
can be described as a true olfactory journey. 
There is something about this bespoken scent, Ambré Lumière, that smells like a gothic fairytale.
People can't figure it out exactly what it is about its surprising accords but all they know is that ones they tested it, they don't want to wear anything else. 
Established in 1849, Molinard is one of the word's most exclusive labels.

3 FROM 1. THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME.


From left to right: Look 12, Look 4, Look 26

The refined pieces offered by Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin under the Tome label, always seem to find their way into the modern women's wardrobe. It probably has to do with the fact that they are inspired by menswear,  or simply because they are powerful and sophisticated at the same time.
Either way, I love it and believe you'll be craving for their Pre-Fall 2015 collection as I already do.

Bundling up in the cold season has never been more easy. Not quite merry and bright but rather sophisticated and masterfully crafted, the sweaters that qualify to enter in the great category come in camel, gray and cobalt-blue.
