The Cotton Teneo Dress with leather accent patch.
Just added..... the Teneo & Duelle dresses as well as more Grille Kaftans. I have stolen my own sample of the Grille kaftan and have worn it an embarrassing amount of times these past two weeks, nothing like stealing from your own collection. I love the print on it and was so thrilled when I was able to get more of this lovely fabric yesterday.
Just watched: Split screen love story... New York + Paris ÷London = Awesome.
Just draped: Already thinking about what's next and considering incorporating the side cowl in some future designs, practicing never hurts. PS... The moodboard for the summer collection in the background but more on that later.
Just came from: The garment district (kind of a given for me) & the best margaritas ever at Tortilla Flats. Plus, I couldn't resist peaking into AllSaints even if the whole store is barricaded by a wall of sewing machines.
Just sewed: Another of The 'Ahu Tops....
Just listened to: DJ Sneak vs Le Knight Club - Intergalactik Disko. So summer....

Got to preview the Theyskens Theory Resort 2012. I loved seeing the clothes in person because I have always loved the unique way Olivier has of cutting everything (please see the amazing bias cut tweed jacket below!). Inspiration was a Venice Beach girl and all the pieces in the collection are very easily interchangeable, the color story could almost be described as "rainbow" with a fair amount of attention still given to black and navy. One of my favorites was the maxi dress with leather fringe back detail but the looseness and airiness of the collection is always so beautiful.... plus, I can't really think or wearing sweaters right now but in the winter I could live in that striped sweater.
