Her Majesty

I really love this official portrait the Queen by photographer David Bailey. As the photographer says, “She has very kind eyes with a mischievous glint,’ he said. ‘I’ve always liked strong women and she is a very strong woman.’”

Delicious

I’m so excited about the new labels and hangtags we are working on debuting with the Fall 2014 Collection and have been getting swept away with beautiful design and packaging on Pinterest, and have created a Pinterest board of beautiful, feminine, refined design.  I’m obsessed with bitters packaging and admit to be influenced by the design on wine bottles when choosing wine!  Chocolates, perfume, even the design of a bar of motel soap have caught my eye.  This lovely Frosted Pecans packaging is from Studio Nudge. So enticing… I really want to see what the pecans look - and taste - like!

The History of Love

Just finished reading this amazing book, The History of Love by Nicole Krauss… it’s richly romantic but with some beautiful yet bitter bits… here is a sample passage I love:

“She was gone, and all that was left was the space you’d grown around her, like a tree that grows around a fence. For a long time, it remained hollow. Years, maybe. And when at last it was filled again, you knew that the new love you felt for a woman would have been impossible without Alma. If it weren’t for her, there would never have been an empty space, or the need to fill it.”

Bill Cunningham: Facades

Legendary New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham is showing a series of photographs documenting fashion in the city at the New York Historical Society, a must-see exhibition.  Mr. Cunningham is such a gentleman and so passionate about fashion, photography, culture, people; he is one of the original ‘street style’ photographers.  His “On The Street” feature in the Sunday New York Times is always such a joy.  (One of my favorite “New York” moments was picnicking in Battery Park with my husband in the 90’s, and being approached by this kind man asking to take our photograph, I don’t think we made the paper but it’s a photograph I wish I had today!)
