bliss lau

i love erin wasson, and her collaboration with alexander wang, just as much as the next girl. however, her new jewelry line, low luv, could take a few hints from parsons grad bliss lau.
lau uses her knowledge of garment draping to create versatile pieces that follow the body and can change the way you wear your clothes, or the way they wear you. she also makes some amazing belts.

i have a feeling these pieces would be just as interesting over a tshirt as with formalwear. certainly they're beyond just jewelry.

Ricardo Tisci's looks for Givenchy have been really blowing my away the past few défilé de mode...and now his fall ad campaign showcases all the power and intricacy of his designs....

"I chose these five women that represent elegance/femininity and masculinity with character. I chose Natasha, Lara, Maria Carla, Kristen, Lakshmi. It is a family portrait."

french style

a while back i got a request to address french style more often. living in paris as an american, after a long time, parisian chic can become an almost relentless parade of black and legs for miles. every parisienne worth her salt owns a leather jacket. and the's impossible to explain in words, and who better to show you than the arbiters themselves, carine and the gang at paris vogue:
