"Near the end of his life, Henri Matisse's preferred attire was evening wear,
by which I mean pajamas." 

-Holland Cotter, "Wisps from an Old Man's Dreams",
published in today's NY Times.  


in the studio with leanne shapton

Leanne Shapton is the kind of woman who does it all. Formerly the art director of the NYT Op-Ed page, she now writes and illustrates books, runs a nonprofit press with a friend (which she founded, of course), creates and sells her own incredible art, and generally kicks ass in the game of life. I fell in love with her Manhattan studio a few years back when it was featured in The Paris Review. She's nailed the eclectic look while staying completely true to herself... it seems as if everything in her space has a story. I've looked at these images too many times to count. I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

asprey's alligator scarf belts

I think Asprey’s alligator scarf belts are the utmost peak of chic. I am a longtime fan of the company's silk scarves - I actually included one in my most recent editor’s wishlist. And to wear one around your waist?! Divine. Don’t you think this is something that Grace Kelly would have worn?

sally singer: cyclist extraordinaire

Forgive me for posting so many images of woman and their bicycles, but I just find them incredibly chic! Similar to Parisian stylist Catherine Baba, Sally Singer (pictured above) biked to Vogue everyday in her favorite YSL or Balenciaga pumps (how do these women do it?). These images accompany a fabulous PAPERMAG interview with the newly appointed Editor-In-Chief of T Magazine—it’s her first interview since leaving Vogue. It’s a great read, darlings.. be sure to pop by and take a look!
