We’ve talked about this subject a lot on these pages, and never take for granted the unique way in which jewelry can contain so much memory and meaning. It is that quality ~ not the metals or stones ~ that make it truly precious. It means so much when someone we love gives us something so personal, lasting, valuable and meaningful, and it can mean just as much (or more!) when we are able to buy it for ourselves. It’s for that purpose ~ the essential celebration and spoiling of oneself ~ that
In 1895, they were married. The young lovers had much in common: youthful enthusiasm, a pioneering spirit, an ethic of family solidarity, and a passion for precious stones. Above all, they were inspired by the desire to create something lasting together ~ an urge that led them to found the Maison of Van Cleef & Arpels, a jewelry house where love is fundatmental. Jewelry can contain so much meaning, for the talismans we wear carry the fantasies and reveries of both ourselves and the dreamers
Besides New York, Donna Karan is synonymous with two things: jersey and black tights. Jersey leggings, dresses, bodysuits… and black tights under everything. It’s a system of dressing tailor-made for modern women, one of those classics that never risk falling out of vogue. Donna Karan has made the idea of a long black line so much her signature that in 1997 she penned the forward to a book called LEG. It was a visual ode to her favorite focal point. A coffee table classic, we rediscovered

It’s time for sifting through old photo albums, for stumbling upon the genius-at-the-time pictures you took of your crew for that photojournalism class, for reminiscing about the dizzying, unbearable, idle days of adolescence. Days when we were young and raw and tough and scared, acting way cooler than we actually felt on the inside. Those were the days, we are the times. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals. The post Oi To The World appeared first on The Glamourai. SOURCE: The Glamourai -
The Gucci vibe’s a little like that, anyway. It’s a beautiful girl who knows when to be tough, floral prints paired with rock n’ roll leathers. It’s the darlingly brattish, tasseled backpack, ready to travel the world. It’s a horse bit bracelet in your holiday stocking, equestrian prep meets weekend delinquent, a scarf that’s naughty and nice… It’s a glossy photo studio as much as it’s a gritty Brooklyn rooftop. It’s the kind of
That single line, that solitary brushstroke: what confidence and promise it holds! It’s a concept that ran through Maiyet’s Resort collection, whose standout silhouettes represented a study in minimalism, with lush silk wisps punctuated only occasionally by a crisp black hem or a spaghetti-string waistband. They gave us clothes stripped of excess, leaving only what matters remaining. It’s the calming response to so much visual noise, and a quiet refute is truly the fitting aesthetic stance of a
Bold centerpieces contrast with delicate, vintage-inspired details. Mixed metals pair with earthly elements left in the raw. Laura’s work is made for modern nomads, and I had the great pleasure of being invited to photograph four of my favorite vagabonds ~ Ann-Marie Hoang, Vashtie Kola, Athena Calderone and Chelsea Leyland ~ in celebration of her US launch. Our collaboration stems from a shared love of life on the road, an affinity for storytelling and a deep-rooted need to translate both
Flaviana was famously the first Miss Universe contestant to compete with a shaved head, defying the competition’s long-held standards of beauty by becoming a finalist for the title. She has gone on to establish a foundation that provides funding for education to girls in sub-Saharan Africa, women who wouldn’t otherwise have access. Lagos is also the surname of a jewelry designer whose work is recognized for its immaculate craftsmanship and caviar-like beading ~ classic, collectible
Gender codes are bending to the point that drag queens like Conchita Wurst are able to break through, bearded and beautiful, and a pop star like Grimes can admit (as she did in the Fall issue of POP) that she’s never once shaved her legs. Shows like Transparent remind us how little we really know about the ones we love. Normcore may be fashion’s buzzword of choice this season, but in my lifetime I’ve never yet seen such a large-scale cultural disinterest in normalcy. What does
Back then, I always felt like Lord & Taylor was my secret sanctum. Leading up to Fashion Week, I’d put in relentless hours in the studio, prepping for our show ~ but at night I’d still try to make a party or dinner with friends. I’d run out of work long past sunset and dart up to Lord & Taylor’s second floor, find a fetching chiffon frock and do a quick-change in the fitting rooms before heading out into the night. The store was my spot to reset. It was my first
First day of Paris Fashion Week down and it can no longer be called the “sleepy” day. Jacquemus’ shiny happy people on the beach antics, Anthony Vaccarello saying “Hey it’s A to the V” with to-the-point typographic dresses and a view of fetishised women straddling spinning office chairs up on Tour Montparnasse for Hood by Air’s part deux show. And that’s just day one. Making a Parisian debut though was Japanese label Anrealage designed
