katemoss

Anyone who remembers the 90s, remembers that Birkenstocks were the cool footwear of choice. There’s been a lot of time since then and New Yorkers, thanks in no small part to Carrie Bradshaw, spent most of the last decade prancing around the streets in the highest shoes we could find. We are almost thrilled to report (for comforts sake of course) that Birkenstocks are back with a huge bang this summer. More…

Sigma Polke Rebels At MoMA

DSC_9532

The first large-scale US retrospective of legendary German artist Sigmar Polke (1941-2010) opens this weekend at MoMA.  Sigmar Polke is one considered to be one of the most experimental artists of the 20th century and the works on view demonstrate this perfectly.  From his enormous paintings on materials as flimsy as bubble wrap or printed textiles, there is not one medium that defines his almost 50 year-long career.

The Rebirth Of Marc by Marc Jacobs

DSC_9631Last night we visited the Soho showroom of Marc by Marc Jacobs to view the Fall 2014 collection. Under the leadership of British design stars Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier, the new collection feels like a throw back to the spirit of the brand when it first exploded on to the New York fashion scene.  Best of all the collection feels like a total departure from the vintage inspired cute designs of the past few seasons, with this collection feeling firmly club kid inspired.

Book SmartDSC_6571

We are enamored by Parisian designer Olympia Le-Tan’s exquisitely embroidered bags.  Using a slew of classic book titles like “Sidatha“and “Lady Chatterly’s Lover” as well as humorous tongue-in-cheek titles the likes of “Manners To Men” and “The Lure Of Long Beach” each bag is a thing of great beauty.  We lust after Le-Tan’s classic “New York” bag, but have to admit, they all bring a smile to our face.
