A few weeks ago, Matchbook Magazine graciously gave me the opportunity to interview fashion designer Trina Turk at her Los Angeles Home. I think it’s safe to say that I’d count my few hours spent chez Trina among the best in my life! Walking into her home is not unlike entering the utmost glamorous Palm Springs retreat. Warm and colorful yet sleek and modern, it was, essentially, the Trina Turk line embodied in an interior. You, of course, can see for yourself in the March issue of Matchbook Magazine (Ms. Bonnie Tsang captured it beautifully). Oh, and in person? Trina Turk (yes, that is her real name :) is absolutely wonderful! Above are a few personal instagrams from the occasion. You can view more by browing through my archive here! x
Upon showing this video to my boyfriend, he said, “…so she’s drop-dead gorgeous, and she’s royalty?” Why yes, that sums it up quite nicely :) A dead-ringer for her starlet grandmother, Ms. Casiraghi is the new face of Gucci’s equestrian-inspired Forever Now collection. Fashion photog Peter Lindbergh captured her campaign debut, the first of (reportedly) four installments. Doesn’t it make you want to become a professional Gucci-clad equestrian? Me, too. I’m still trying to put my finger on the fabulous tune this video is set to – if you happen to know, you’d be my hero :)
Upon viewing this instagram photo by Ms. Katie Evans, I became completely enamored by Kate Spade’s new line of wristwear. I’ve always found bangle watches to be very chic (my grandmother used to wear a gold one on special occasions), and I love brightly-colored enamel bracelets. The hybrid of these two elements is a wonderful, wonderful thing. Nordstrom has the entire line available for viewing here. Which watch do you fancy? My favorites are the above :)
Lady Mary would have loved the work of French painter Eva Gonzalès. Ms. Gonzalès, the daughter of a writer, was the only “formal” student of Édouard Manet and often sat as his model. Unfortunately, her career was cut short when she died during childbirth at the age of 34. What she was able to accomplish during her short life is quite amazing – I can only imagine the force she would have become in the art world had she lived just a few decades longer. I particularly love women artists – can you tell? :) Above, from top to bottom: Morning Awakening, Roses dans un verre, Secretly, Nounou avec enfant, La Toilette.
