With Glittering Eyes: Paris and London

I recently took an inspirational trip to Paris and fell in love with the beauty of the city all over again:  The Musee d’Orsay takes my breath away, there are always exciting new artists to discover in museums (this time I learned of Armand Berton and Francois Petrovich) and found myself always looking up with wonder:  the blue ceiling with gold stars at St. Germain Des Pres, and the beautiful ship chandelier at my favorite shop in Paris, Astier de Villate.  Everytime I go to Paris I find something new, and this time it was this lovely candy store, Meert. 

London always provides a creative spark and this time I went with a purpose … to see the David Bowie Exhibition at the V & A Museum, which raised the bar on museum exhibitions and literally left me breathless, I thought I would faint… the man is a genius! I also managed to shop, of course, and visited one of my favorite stores, Dover Street Market.

Love Interests

Rebecca’s husband, artist Wayne Pate, created the Poppy Tote bag.  His inspiration: “Besides spring the drawing of poppies embodies those little magical moments that life gives you for free. The poppies remind me of one of those in the South of France where there is a endless sea of them everywhere you look.”  He’s obsessed with Paris turn-of-the-century, 20’s and 30’s art scene and Jean Desbordes is his style icon.  Wayne’s instagram is a generous look into his creative mind.

The Poppy Tote is free with a purchase of $350 or more, while supplies last.

Sparkle on the Way

I’ve always been a hands-on designer and the more I get my hands on something, the more likely a garment with sparkles will be the final result … I love the technique and craftsmanship behind embellishment and am always inspired working with Vien, our embroidery designer.  Not a detail goes unnoticed in these upcoming collections:  a bodice shines in our Black Tie collection, sparkles are added to a print and chainmail to a tee from Fall 2013.
