You Spin Me Round
Elsa Sylvan, the model in our Resort 2013 Film, was amaaaazing! We were all impressed how she was able to balance in high heels while dancing on a small spinning circular platform … Brava Elsa!

Frances Ha

Really enjoyed Frances Ha, a film directed by Noah Baumbach and starring Greta Gerwig. It seemed tailor-made for me as it was filmed in New York, the main theme is female friendship, the lead character is a dancer and “Modern Love” by David Bowie is even in it. I loved Greta Gerwig, who stars as Frances- even more so after listening to this NPR interview:

Flights of Fancy
Artist Elle Muliarchyk has created a spectacular installation in our Madison Avenue store. Giant origami cranes preen in the windows, a beautiful flock of origami cranes are aflight in the store and festively lit for the holidays. Inspired by Elle’s well-travelled life and a Swedish fairy tale called The Wonderful World of Nils, the project was created in collaboration with Alicia McDaid of Garage magazine.
On the back wall, Elle’s film of 100s of birds is projected beautifully flying in formation. Magical, playful; this installation represents freedom and transformation.

We just wrapped up our Pre-Spring 2013 film and couldn’t help noticing that one of our models, Natalie (top) looks a lot like Rosanna Arquette (middle) from The Big Blue.  Then, we couldn’t help reminiscing about our 80’s crushes on the hunk in that movie, the dreamiest of dreamboats, Jean-Marc Barr…<sigh>

The Paperboy
A film noir shot with primarily pale pastels, I loved this movie- especially Nicole Kidman&#8217;s performance as a sexy, feral yet vulnerable Southern woman. Must see!

Great Expectations

Over the holidays I saw Melancholia, “a beautiful movie about the end of the world”, as it’s marketed.  It is truly beautiful, with lovely styling, cinematography, effects and an incredible musical score.  Starring Kirsten Dunst.  I found it to be ultimately about expectations.

Designers putting out collection after collection always feel the challenge of expectations —- customers and editors anticipate something new.   The hidden gem you discover on your own is more memorable than the hotspot everyone insists you simply must go to.

One of my favorite scenes of the movie is in the beginning, when the bride and groom are in a stretch limo going to the wedding.  The limo isn’t able to maneuver around a tricky curve in the road, and the driver is going forward, backward, turning the wheel this way and that, but going nowhere.  The groom tries to help and gets behind the wheel, with the bride giving directions.  Doesn’t work.  The bride gets behind the wheel, giving it a go.  Still doesn’t work.  What makes the scene so nice is how they handle the situation—- with positivity and grace —- ultimately walking to the wedding heels in hand, laughing, late.  Lovely.
