PINK VELVET ON THE STREETS OF LONDON

I have a new designer to love: Rejina Pyo. I discovered this amazing designer label on NET-A-PORTER when I spotted this crushed velvet David Bowie-esque pantsuit splashed against the homepage. I knew it had to be mine. I love the thick waist belt complete with an extra wide-leg pant. A pantsuit is essential for me when I travel. I have them in just about every color, and they’re fantastic to travel in…worn together or as separates. They make packing a total breeze. This one is a showstopper. I was just in London with Veuve Clicquot for their special Widow Series art exhibit with Carine Roitlfeld and decided to extend my stay at the Nobu Shoreditch so that I could soak in all that East London had to offer.  Traveling with Veuve Clicquot is always such a dream. They throw the most incredible events, that always leave me inspired. More on that in another post! But here, I hit up just about every single store off Redchurch Street as I constantly searched for the nearest Indian restaurant. Can you say Dishoom?! I crave their curry the moment I get off the plane. London is a such a special city. Their love for art and fashion is unlike anywhere else. It’s the most amazing place to be inspired in both design and decor. I finally had a day off so I grabbed a cup of coffee and hit the city by foot in Rejina Pyo pink.

OUR COTTAGE IN THE ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE | M MISSONI

Isn’t this the most beautiful English cottage? I have so, so much to be thankful for this year. I’m so thankful for being able to travel the world, to constantly create and imagine, to meet amazing people, and be able to bring my family and friends along with me on this wonderful journey, every single day. The M Missoni stories I shot in England with Dylana are ones to be framed and remembered. I get a tingling feeling just looking back at them. It has always been a dream of mine to shoot in the foggy English countryside. For years, I have admired the grey skies, fair isle sweaters, and chicken coups that graced the glossy pages of British Vogue. That feeling of being far away, in the middle of nowhere, wrapped in wool is mesmerizing and intriguing. It’s a photographer’s dream. M Missoni made that dream of mine a reality during our Winter ’17 shoot at Soho Farm House in Oxfordshire, England. This is just a sneak peek into our shoot. I’ll rolling around in our grassy front yard for now.

THE SANDALS YOU NEED FOR YOUR NEXT GETAWAY

My next hot, hot destination is Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in late January. The heat in Kuala Lumpur is 24/27. You can’t go anywhere without a perfect sandal. Bikinis, cotton slip dresses, and flip-flops become my wardrobe. When I’m there, I like to keep things super light, including my suitcase. My new resort sandals are by Sangria Sandals. All made from luxurious leathers in gorgeous poppy colors. Here, I’m sporting their lovely Precious Metals collection, an array of silver, gold, copper, charcoal, and cognac. Even in NYC, whenever I’m running out the door, these remain by my front door. Slip on and go…and they always look chic and go with just about everything. Finding a sandal that’s classic and well-made was on my pre-holiday shopping list. The more and more I travel, especially to tropical places, the more I have begun to simplify my wardrobe. Staying on the beach all day? Sangria. Exploring a new city in the heat? Sangria. Running to the deli, even in the middle of winter? Sangria. I’m a loyal fan.

ALL ABOUT ETRO

Etro does prints and beautiful silks unlike anyone else. It’s pure romance…a mix of whimsical flowers and vines in a stunning neutral color palette with a touch of rock n’ roll. The little pop of salmon pink is just so gorgeous. This fall, as I begin to layer up, I’m using prints to make a statement. I love pairing these flowing wide-leg pants with something super simple, like a perfectly tailored double-breasted blazer. Taking something majestic and bringing it back down to earth. This was shot in the middle of Milan Fashion Week, where the wardrobe is loader, bolder, and a lot more fun! Italians like to indulge in decadence and luxury as more is just more, more, more! The same goes for pasta. Here as the sun went down by the Navigli canal, the city turned gold and I was comforted by the scent of delicious neapolitan pizza cooking from the rows and rows of restaurants. Amidst the MFW madness and walking in heels, I was so ready to tuck into a tiny cafe, order a bottle of wine, and call it a night with my gal pals. This weekend will certainly be one to stay in and tuck away before jumping into another crazy week. I just got back to NYC for work after a 6am flight from Los Angeles. Boy, does this lady need a nap! These gorgeous Etro pants will have to make it’s next head-turning appearance on a more eventful night!
