Snow began to fall as guests filed in for the K Nicole runway show at Studio 450 last night. Shimmer through The Loft’s floor-to-ceiling windows became the demure setting for K Nicole’s Edwardian inspiration.
Military button details framed high collars and waistlines. Structured neo-classical gowns in updated, casual fabrics invited a welcome juxtaposition -- Lady Astor meets Astor Place, Belle Époque meets Bar 89.
Two weekends ago, we spent our post-brunch Saturday afternoon on the High Line, people-watching and terrorizing children with bubbles. Ever since its opening in June 2009, The High Line has managed to maintain its stylish appeal to locals and visitors alike. With People’s Pops, The Porch, and Melt Bakery, everyone’s favorite elevated park boasts everything but the Nutz4Nuts and street-meat that never fails to stink up your hair.
Living up to its magnetic reputation, the High Line Park has again lured expanding retail to our feet. New York’s newest Intermix frontier opened last month at the High Line’s southern entrance. Located on 812 Washington Street, this spot was formally occupied by The Manhattan Refrigerating Company, with trains that ran straight through the shop to off-load inside. The two-story boutique retained the building’s overhead steel tracks, embracing the area’s history while enjoying its chic transformation.
Anna Dello Russo, the Editor at Large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan, is celebrating her new Editor at Large arrangement with INC for the Fall/Holiday 2011 season. During this evening’s event, guests previewed ADR’s launch at Openhouse Gallery.
With a full champagne bar and music by DJ Sky Ferreira, we spent our Wednesday night mingling amongst a line-up of fabulous color-blocking and fuchsia fur.
Thakoon Resort 2012 challenges the polished urbanite, inciting a distinctive tinge of wanderlust. By blending West African-inspired motifs with crisp contours, Thakoon Panichgul introduces a more sophisticated perspective to the current bohemian trend. The cosmopolitancollection adorns fitted blazers, tennis dresses and A-lined skirts with ikat prints and mina-khani patterns.
“Resort,”in this case, is an inaccurate term: Rather than signing up for an all-inclusive package, Thakoon’s muse would much prefer to follow her own itinerary.
Playlist inspiration: The Raveonettes - ‘Forget That You’re Young’
Channel Thakoon’s aesthetic with a sound that is distant, yet aware, like the vocal-centric harmonies of The Raveonettes.
Languish in New York's newfound heat with a look that is breezy and effortless. The April 2011 issue of Vogue Turkey published a lucent spread of hazy bohemia, embracing long, light silhouettes in sunwashed fabrics.
Last season, Jac Langheim impressed DL with her innovative use of latex, combining this uncommon texture with more traditional luxury fabrics. Her primarily-rubber collection offered structured vests, A-lined dresses, and body-skimming cocktail frocks. Sophisticated, unexpected and adaptable, Langheim’s line earned her an enviable level of rising esteem.
This season, Jac revisited her successful recipe of “astonish and acquaint.” Once again using latex, she created modern silhouettes in solid and printed rubber. Clean lines, asymmetrical paneling, and minimalist legwear lent a more futuristic emphasis for F/W11.
