NY Fashion Week...Preen!!

Graphic and modern, but certainly not too conceptual to wear, Preen was by far my favorite over-all collection. Although it embodied all the trends we're seeing for fall (black & white, cut-outs, high hemlines, etc.), it wasn't smeared with needless details and costume-y dramatics. Each piece was executed thoughtfully and as I continue to flip through the photos I'm appreciating the subtler looks more and more, especially the coats and mix of textures.

NY Fashion Week...Zero + Maria Cornejo

In 2006 a dear friend of mine, who was working as an assistant stylist, told me over cocktails (or cigarettes and cupcakes, I can't remember) that he had been in Nolita and worked with this amazing designer, Maria Cornejo. He showed me some images and certainly got my attention. Although her career far precedes '06, and probably most of my lifetime, she was new to me and her approach to women's fashion so different than anyone I'd seen. Her designs are fluid, unadorned and, at first glance, seemingly rudimentary. However, the complexities start to reveal themselves as layers fall together like puzzle pieces and a simple sheath is simotaniously geometric and languid on a women's body.

NY Fashion Week...Koi Suwannagate

I can't believe it's that time again! Is it just me, or does it seem like every year collections show earlier and earlier?? Anyhow, there's been a lot of anticipation and talk surrounding Fall/Winter '09 and how the recession will effect the designers and their collections. So far I've seen a distinctive drop in the number of looks being shown, and the number of pieces in each look: less layers, less accessories, less fabric...with the exception of Diane Von Furstenberg. Among the collections I've seen there are similarities in the mood and in the characteristics of the garments. As buyers and shoppers have limited budgets it's going to be even more crucial to make smart purchases that are both distinctive and versitile, harder than it sounds.

St Kilda

St Kilda also recently opened their first store in Park Slope, Brooklyn (my old stomping ground). Congrats! (earrings at

Les Chiffoniers


Alexander Wang

The knit of this sweater is absolutely amazing! So sheer, so perfectly delicate. Shredded like silk stockings in a seemingly random and almost unintended way (although with a $400 price tag we know it was no accident!). I'm loving all the various interpretations of the over sized boyfriend cardigan for spring, it's refreshing to see after being such a staple in the f/w '08 wardrobe. This is an example of how a traditionally boring mainstay of fashion (the cardigan) can be given personality and new life. (at

Derek + Daria

Daria Werbowy has always been one of my favorite photographed people. She has so many enviable physical qualities I won't even try to list them, and her quiet charisma translates onto film flawlessly. So when I stumbled upon these Derek Kettela images I couldn't resist sharing them with you. Enjoy! (images from
