Dog Days Are Over

As I’m working on Summer 2013 collection I’m thinking about some of the fantastic moments from this past summer on Shelter Island, where my husband and I and the kids spend many weekends… enjoy these stills and sounds from summer

Couldn’t have lived without:

citron espadrilles from bensimon, the sunday times, rosé, ice/wine bag (best invention ever), stripes (and stars too, since I became an American citizen over the summer!)

Summer Playlist:

Florence and the Machine - No Light No Light

David Bowie - Young Americans

Robyn - Dancing on my Own

I was recently on the Upper East Side visiting the store on Madison and afterwards found myself at Bemelmans, a bar in the Carlyle Hotel. The charming illustrations caught my eye —- whimsical but not overly cute,  there’s even a stalking rabbit in the mix.
Bemelmans was named after, and the illustrations were created by, Ludwig Bemelmans, author and illustrator of the Madeline books and a former resident of the Carlyle.
Now I’m inspired to add a mural to the walls of the Madison store… details to come…

Girls will be Girls
Our kids collection has a cool laid-back summer vibe —- allowing little girls be their adorable little selves.   Keep it simple - with easy, soft silhouettes, a cute print on a dress or top is enough.

The Iris Sandal
When I was a teenager in New Zealand, I used to paint my shoes with red nail polish to glam them up —- even bring the bottle out to the club with me for touch-ups!
