Runway Report: Antonio Berardi SS18

The creative genius that is Antonio Berardi looked back in time as he prepared for his SS18 collection. Like many Europeans, his family moved over from Sicily and grafted with what they had to make a living, and live well. His collection represented his history and his and his family’s pride in always presenting your best self to the world. Relatives would send clothing from America, and they’d sew together what they had to create something new. Fast forward to a Monday in London and Berardi’s models were adorned in mix-media fine tailoring and silhouettes – a type of ode to arts and crafts. Suiting in pink, olive green, gray checks and black set the tone for smart workwear with a crafty twist, … Read More

Runway Report: Prabal Gurung SS18

Much like season’s past, Prabal Gurung used his SS18 show stage to send a political message. The show opened with the Activist’s Prayer, “Grant me the strength to change the things I cannot accept,” and with that, the tone was set not only for the remainder of the show but for the season to come. Using an amalgamation of prints, fabrics, and textures, sheer chiffon reminded us to be our true selves, chunky knits gave us the notion of staying strong and the clashes of plaid pretty much honed in the message that we should still try and have fun, life is too short. Not only is SS18 set to be a strong season for reasons previously addressed, it also predicts a smart and sophisticated aesthetic. … Read More

Boutique Spotlight: Edie Parker on Madison

Slyly tucked away in a small brick and mortar on Madison avenue in the upper east side of Manhattan, the first standing Edie Parker flagship store is here. It bursts with a kaleidoscope of color and texture from the moment you step into the 1,000 sq ft. space and is filled from top to bottom with everything from classic goodies like Brett Heyman’s famous acrylic poured clutches to one of a kind home decor pieces (octagonal boxes, breakfast trays, and card cases), phone covers and monogrammed favorites that are nearly impossible to resist. “The inspiration behind the store’s design was ‘Gio Ponti meets Gloria Vanderbilt’ said Heyman, “as I wanted the store to feel residential – sort of like visiting someone’s groovy apartment before a night out… Read More

The Mini Bag 2.0

After going through all of the images from our Fall and Resort market appointments, we saw a trend of ultra-mini bags – some similar to the minauderie – coming back into our lives in full force. These itty bitty bags, while they don’t pack a punch in size, make us turn our heads with their stunning design as they could easily be confused for a beautiful piece of jewelry with their small yet ornate shape and exquisite details. Meant to hold the (very) bare essentials (credit card and lipstick, check!) it’s a fun trend that although may not be the most functional, we can’t help but want to use them every chance we get. Shop our favorites in the slideshow above! Read More

The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition NYC

With Patek Philippe being what most horologists and enthusiasts would consider the apex of the watch hierarchy, it’s only to be assumed that the Art of Watches Grand Exhibition held in New York City would be nothing less than an overwhelming tribute to the history and success of this iconic brand.
