Here we go again….
Down the street to a new little cafe called Maman. Just when we thought we’d exhausted all of the usuals for lunch, bam! A super sweet spot opens. And French to boot. Emily and I passed by for a take-away lunch of avocado toast, butternut squash soup and potato salad – all pretty tasty. They may have also had some delicious treats like a chocolate chip cookie, which we were obliged to try while we were there. Comfort, farm fresh food just in time for the winter! Maman, 239 Centre Street (between Grand & Broome)]]>
In lieu of the new “Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs” exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art, which opened October 12th, we’ve found some Fall/Winter 2014 looks that evoke some of the artist’s most famous works. The masterful combination of contrast, line and color that Matisse was able to create with scissors is no doubt something that fashion designers today strive for as they cut their garments. Perhaps these images will inspire you so much that you’ll want to go at your clothes with a pair of scissors…
“Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs,” is on view at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City October 12, 2014 through February 8,2015]]>
Attention please, the new minis are here. They’re high waisted and make your legs look super long. They’re worn like in the 60’s (just in case you hadn’t noticed, we’re getting hit by a pretty strong 60’s revival) and this is how they’re going to be worn on the street, or let’s say, for women with normal legs and normal life with a lot of commuting included, with a good pair of reassuring tights (ew, metro / taxi seats)]]>

Let these pieces be your inspiration to head out the door and see the world on your own! Saying you’re a “creative director” today is as easy as labeling yourself a “curator”. Both are too often thrown around, but here a major retailer calls her their Director of Creative Projects, and in this case the title is valid. Baby pandas being adorable. There is nothing else to say. For all of us (which is nearly everyone) who use it everyday but don’t think twice about it (unless we’re complaining because of a poor connection): the internet is amazing!

Do you know Poppy Delevingne ? I love this girl – with her blondness and sweetness and English-style cheekiness. Here are a few photos we took for my new Happy Diamonds project with Chopard. We wanted the photos to feel like you were spending the day (an amazing day, of course – it’s Chopard after all, it’s sublime) with her at home.]]>

This summer, for the first time in my life, I rode in a helicopter.
It had been one of my dreams in life, I don’t really know why – and it was when my family came to visit me in New York that I finally decided to go ahead and do it. It’s very easy to take a helicopter to fly over New York – you just have to go to the heliport… It’s a bit expensive, but a great gift if you dream of seeing the city like you’ve never seen it before.
A lot of people totally scared the hell our of me before I went (“You’re going to crash!!!” “Those things will explode against a building if there’s even the tiniest bit of wind!!!”)(let’s just say that people who are afraid of heights don’t go easy on you when it comes to convincing their friends not to risk their lives) so even though I do have a little bit of a dare devil in me, let’s say I was quietly freaking out. But hey, it’s very organized and regulated, ok, and hoards of tourists show up to do it every day, so in terms of danger, the risk is probably close to zero. But still. You’re going to think I’m crazy, but the thing I was most excited about was the take off. I’ve always had a thing for the propellers, the wind, the noise… And that crazy forward motion the helicopter makes when it leaves the ground. I thought being inside must be kind of like riding Space Mountain. And I LOVE Space Mountain… But I was a little disappointed, because you actually you don’t feel anything at all. You take off from the ground like it’s some kind of magic, and a few seconds later, you’re flying over the Statue of Liberty.
And that’s when it starts to get really amazing. I won’t tell you much more about it – I’ll just share a few photos with you. It’s beautiful, it’s sublime, it’s magical. You feel so small and big at the same time, it’s like you could take the whole city in your hand. You can see the full expanse of Central park, the full height of the city, the beauty of its bridges, and the incredible romanticism of it all. It’s simply sublime.
You have to do it at least once. If you’re not afraid of heights, of course. Big kisses! Translated by Andrea Perdue]]>
By now you have probably caught on to the fact that Alana is a serious beauty. It’s one of the many reasons we were so excited to work with her on our first fashion story. Of course, a big part of the fashion story was coming up with a beauty look to go with the looks and we decided to go with something simple, natural and warm. Tatyana focused on the skin, using moisturizer, light foundation and just covered up any imperfections. The eyebrow, as you know, is one of the most important parts of the face, so she took time to groom and fill it in just right. The focus then was on conturing the face, creating shadows and highlights to help create that glow. Other than that, no mascara, no eyeliner, curled lashes and a balm on the lips! Voila!
When it comes to this kind of look, using your natural beauty as the guideline. Take your best feature and work to bring that forward :) Sweater, Balenciaga. Model Alana Bunte at The Lions NY / Styled by Dianna Lunt / Makeup by Tatyana Makarova / Hair by Eloise Cheung]]>
Acne studios has launched underwear! Now, I’ve mentioned before my specific taste for underwear, white for summer, black for winter. But its equally as hard to find good nude underwear. The kind you need for white pants, or anything remotely sheer. The elastic waist band is even wide enough not to cut into your sides. Plus both styles are available in a lovely mix of neutrals like grey, white, black and and of course nude. So there you have it. My new nude underwear, almost as good as going commando! Do you have a favorite brand? PS. They also made mens styles, perfect for Erik :)]]>
From a new restaurant to a new trendy food (I’m talking about you kale!), the way we eat is something that is a huge part of our everyday life. I was really excited to have the opportunity to spend some time with Melissa and Jasmin Hemsley, authors of the new cookbook (okay, it’s new for us in the US, it’s been in Europe longer!) The Art of Eating Well. Their message is simple: you should eat good food that makes you feel good. Their family business is to help people who want to live healthier and more energized lives. The recipes that they’ve developed in their book are just that, from a black bean brownie (seriously, it’s insanely good) to pastas made from vegetables, they present a fresh take on treating your body well. I tagged along while they shopped for groceries at the Union Square Farmer’s Market and made dinner for friends while in New York this fall and I learned a lot. So here it is, The Art of Eating Well!]]>
