If you are in Los Angeles, there is a wonderful exhibition of paintings of flowers by Alex Katz at 356 Mission. I love his work. Beautiful!

Cecil Beaton

This beautiful Cecil Beaton photograph holds an immense power for me and sparked the design of my new summer collection. I love the simplicity and pride in this young man as well as the artistry of the photo itself, and although the collection does contain some beautiful floral prints and flowing whites, it’s the beauty in Mr. Beaton’s photograph and the integrity of the young subject that I strive for when I design. I hope you enjoy.

J’Adore: Florals

I am in love with the Embroidered Floral Top from our new collection —- I love to take a comfortable silhouette and add couture-like details to make it look and feel luxurious. The light color is luminous and feminine and is wonderful to show jewelry - I styled with a family heirloom bracelet from my grandmother and necklaces designed by my sister, Victoria Tory & Co. I love this top with the Indian Floral Print pant (if I could be transported back to any time it would be Portobello market, London, early 70’s) and with leopard Saint Laurent sneakers (love to mix prints!).

Pulp: A Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets

So excited about this documentary of Pulp, a britpop band. Lead singer Jarvis Cocker is such a wit and an amazing entertainer, as he says in the trailer: “People say ‘what goes on in your mind whilst you’re onstage?’ The great thing is nothing’s going on at all, you get to lose yourself a bit.”

J’Adore: The Embellished Runway Dress

A favorite dress at the Spring 2014 Runway show that is getting a lot of attention editorially in magazines, this dress shines during the day in real-life too. It’s a style that can be dressed down with a classic denim jacket and trainers, or brings the femininity (and fun) to a special occasion. On the runway we layered it over a crisp white shirtdress.  I love to see how our ladies style this!
