nyfw f/w 2012 recap!

for love and lemons

southern cali based brand, for love and lemons is absolutely amazing. the brand focuses on blending textures and fabrics and creating unique silhouettes. founders, gillian mahin and laura hal started their business careers as little girls with a lemonade stand in wyoming. the two girls studied fashion and marketing and began working in sydney, australia. upon returning to the united states, mahin and hal began sewing their line by hand. the for love and lemons girl is reckless and knows exactly what she wants, and how to get it. she is effortlessly chic. I adore the spring collection called "day tripper." the model is fun, silly, and laid back. She embodies the for love and lemons girl.

"juste un clou"

the cartier, "juste un clou", bracelet designed by aldo cipullo is going to be relaunched (announced in the march harper's bazaar). roman designer, cipullo, began working in italy and eventually moved to the states in 1959 to study at the school of visual arts in new york city. he got started working with david webb and tiffany. he began to work with cartier in the late sixties, after designing costume jewelry for trifari. in 1969 he came out with the love bracelet that could only come on and off with a screwdriver. throughout his career with cartier he experimented with new design techniques, such as using nails and dollar signs. he said, “to repeat the past is an easy way to get out of thinking, it’s an escape. The important thing is to reflect the present” (from faerber family site). i am looking forward to seeing "juste un clou's" second debut in the next coming month's.

"chic in the heat"

while perusing harper's bazaar on the treadmill, i came across a lovely ad with one of my favorite models of the moment, lindsey wixon. the shoot has a fun, springy, retro vibe. the shoot was styled by julia von boehm and shot by terry richardson. i love how the bright setting brings out the patterns and textures of the clothing. it is easy to see how much fun wixon had during the shoot, and you can never forget those amazing lips and dimples after viewing these images. take a look below.
