Matisse: The Cut-Outs

I took an inspiration trip to the MoMA to see Matisse: The Cut-Outs, and what an joyous, exhilarating experience. I love how he describes the art of The Cut-Out as ‘drawing with scissors’ or ‘cutting into color’. Truly breathtaking. A must-see!

Woman We Love: Kate Bush

I’m already regretting I didn’t make it to London this summer to see Kate Bush, an idol of mine, as her rare concert series came to a close last night. Such a wonderful woman: “We’re all really sad as it’s the last night,” she told the audience. “I’m going to miss everyone so much.”

As a girl I loved listening to The Whole Story and it still resonates to this day. I read an article in The Guardian which articulates my appreciation for her: She’s a one-off, a prodigy, a creative heatball, an experiment of the species – dazzlingly successful but unreplicable. Her lyrical romanticism is questing and ambivalent, rather than needy and predictable. Her voice is wild, her melodies only make sense when you submit to them. Humming “The Man With the Child in His Eyes…

Chris Stein / Negative

I’m so excited about this book of photographs from Blondie’s Chris Stein. I’ve always been fascinated by New York’s music scene in the 70’s and 80’s and Debbie Harry is an idol of mine - beautiful voice, amazingly photogenic, and the essence of downtown cool.

Garry Winogrand

I recently enjoyed an inspirational outing to the Met and loved the Garry Winogrand photography exhibition, a pre-Instagram documentation of everyday life in the mid-century.  A must-see!

Philippe Baudelocque

While working on the Fall 2014 Collection, I was on an inspirational holiday in Paris and came across the work of graffiti artist Philippe Baudelocque. I love the beautiful mix of graphic patterns and the appearance of multi-dimensional textures.

I had known of his work before and considered it fate and destiny that I’d happen to come across it in its natural habitat, the street — actually quite lucky as the work is created with chalk so it is transient. This is lovely, the thought of creating something temporary, and being able to let go.

Calm within Chaos

I’m sure many women feel overwhelmed with demands and pressures, whatever they may be; yet I’m sure we all have pleasant spots of the day which place the pressures in perspective, often metaphorically so. Personally, I cherish my time in Shelter Island and the peaceful moments such as watching the waves wash over the pebbles. I also have a new puppy Chewy, which although he has boundless energy, he instills in me a feeling of calm.

We have a new print for Fall which I love: the White Noise print. It’s inspired by the energy of the city and modern life; technology, constant communication of competing frequencies, and the luxury of having a clean space where you can zone out, in peace.
