Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels Reveal The Most Creative Jewels

I love the jewelry industry because unlike it’s fickle sister, fashion, jewelry is not a commodity that loses its luster, gets tossed a box and sent to Real Real. Generally speaking, jewelry and watches from notable French houses like Cartier or Van Cleef & Arpels are not created for influencers to show on their feeds, but rather are meant to be well-worn for decades and passed down to the next generation. The pieces retain much of their monetary value and are sentimental talismans. Similarly, the marketing and PR for these brands refect this ethos with editors, journalists, and stylists. They...

Viktor & Rolf’s Ironic Couture Collection Is Just What We Need

Viktor & Rolf’s Ironic Couture Collection Is Just What We Need

It's couture time in Paris and although the coronavirus has put a halt to in-person fashion shows, designers' creative spirit continues to shine. Viktor and Rolf's fashion film, titled "Change" is a sharp and ironic comment of this uncertain and stressful moment in time. It's a fitting title for the precariousness of fashion's future and the normalcy of life after this unimaginable pandemic. But the Dutch duo's take on the current state of affairs is humorous and may put a smile on teeth-clenched faces—for at least the duration of the show.

10 Summer Pick Me Up’s To Brighten The Quarantine Days

10 Summer Pick Me Up’s To Brighten The Quarantine Days

I wish I could have a do-over for the summer of 2020. I couldn't have envisioned a summer without travel or work or enjoying a nice meal at a restaurant. Forgive the toddler-like wining but I really want these months stricken from my life and granted a do-over. But since that is not going to happen, the next best thing is to make myself and what I wear and enjoy, as cheerful, comfy and fun as possible.

Chanel Unveils Cruise Collection

Chanel Unveils Cruise Collection

Today New York is in phase-one of the quarantine lifting. But because many are still wary of letting down their guard, we all move forward to our reimagined reality with baby steps. In a very different universe, today's news is that Chanel unveiled the 2020/21 cruise collection. In the past history of this alternative-world, cruise collections were grand happenings usually held at exotic destinations around the globe. A few lucky editors and influencers, as well as Chanel clients and of course celebrities, jetted to the 20-minute runway show. Chanel was planning the island of Capri as this year's setting, but the lock-down put an end to the dreams of limoncello and Caprese salads by blue waters.

Gifts for Quarantined Mamas

Gifts for Quarantined Mamas

It’s certainly going to be a memorable Mother’s Day for most this year but being hunkered down in quarantine doesn’t mean a day absent of gifts. Significant gifts don’t have to cost much to make an impact. It can be as simple as making someone laugh—that’s my favorite, on the receiving end. I love JibJab for the best digital chuckles. You personalize these e-cards with the faces from your photos which are put to music, with lots of options for the vibe you are going for. It’s kind of basic and low tech but that’s the fun of it.

5 Questions with Canadian Designer Marie Saint Pierre

You may not have heard of Montreal-based Fashion Designer Marie Saint Pierre, a  lauded pioneer of Canadian fashion, but if you are an avid devotee of fashion, you really need to. For over 30 years MSP built a loyal following with her fierce creativity and consumer-centric collections. Her hand-draping techniques and the use of scuba fabric are part of her recipe for success. With flagships in Montreal and Miami, she’s keenly aware of her clientele’s needs and makes that a priority. I visited Marie at her Tribeca, NYC  pop-up in early November—a lifetime ago considering our current pandemic isolation. ML Hello, it’s...
