what to wear no.05

at the library


Wouldn’t it be nice to imagine days spent lazing around the library in a big leather club chair; reading your favourite books, sipping on a coffee, making endless lists…? I wish!

Snowed in over the weekend, I did just finish up one of my new favorites { a major tearjerker } The Fault In Our Stars. SUCH an amazing book. I highly recommend this young-adult love story. In fact, I highly recommend anything by author John Green. xx

the little black jacket

Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld’s show their reinterpretation of Chanel’s iconic little black jacket. It’s amazing how Lagerfeld has transformed the jacket it into a modern, versatile garment that can be work by women and men of all ages.

In his book – The Little Black Jacket – Lagerfeld photographs a multitude of celebrities wearing the jacket with their own individual flair – sometimes classic, sometimes irreverent, but always Chanel. And each one styled by Carine Roitfeld. As you can see from above there were so many fantastic photos that I found it hard to narrow it down. For even more great images check out the e-experience here!

the new gypsies

I recently stumbled across these fantastic images on born to be wild

In September 2009 V Magazine published a fashion story featuring Kate Moss called ”Kate and the Gypsies”. The story was shot by the British photographer Ian McKell who has been following the ”The New Gypsies” for over ten years. Le Journal de la Photographie

Ian elevates fashion photography, with the inquiring edge of documentary, in his book The New Gypsies which can be found here.

the french quarter

“For their first US outpost, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, creators of the hybrid music and fashion label Kitsuné, chose to drop their bags at the new Nomad hotel. With the opening of the boutique (not to mention a much raved-about restaurant), the hotel has converted a lonely corner of Broadway to a white-hot destination for shopping.        

More than its size, Maison Kitsuné wows with its Parisian splendor — parquet floors, polished marble, elaborate moldings — courtesy of the imagination of designer Anna Vignale and the New York architecture firm TBD. Its a continuation of the Francophile feel of the hotel, with interiors by Jacques García and art curated by Be-Poles. 

Ah yes, and the clothing. The clothing! The house label is marked by a rather lithe-looking fox on the move — kitsuné is Japanese for fox — and is nothing if not obsessive when it comes to detail (which shoppers should expect to see reflected on the price tag): cashmere is from Scotland, denim from Japan, and cotton from Oxford. Alongside is a display of friends of the Kitsuné family: Michel Vivien, Monocle, Aesop, J.M. Weston. And this shopping experience comes with one of the best soundtracks in town. Loaëc, ex-manager of Daft Punk, flaunts his talent for uncovering fresh talent — Dwntwn, Childish Gambino, Heartsrevolution, etc — on the Kitsuné America compilation. Rock on.” Tablethotels.com
