Since I have #menswear on my brain here is a behind-the-scenes look from the shoot I styled with the handsome actor Jesse Johnson. Yes, son of that other good-looking Johnson.
So Fresh and So Clean! Meow Meow Tweet!
While @CapsuleShow I was taken with the cute cats all over the packaging when I approached @meowmeowtweetNY table. Then I got a wiff of the yummy scents like grapefruit mint and lavender with lemon that was wedged within cat claws and family portraits. Such wonderful goodness packed into such a quirky design.
Collars are still going strong into FW12. Here is an open choker by the talented Jill Martinelli and Sabine Lu Guyader of @LadyGreyJewelry that I discovered @CapsuleShow. I would love to pair this with a long lariat necklace to have a nice layering effect.
The jewelry encompasses the design duo’s love of science and nature with geometric rings and bangles to crystal + geodes in pendants, earrings and cuffs. The collection has a dark and romantic edginess that feels completely modern.
@MorganCarper is another designer I discovered @Capsuleshow that is playing with hard and soft elements for FW12. The collection had amazing prints and luxurious fabrics but one of my favorite pieces that combine her classic and edgy sensibilities perfectly was this new take on a motorcycle jacket. Visit her here!
Glamorous Warrior Women! Joomi Lim is calling you! Just a peek to show you the incredible range from @JoomiLim with her Dark Romance titanium cuffs to her Mixography fringe necklaces. It was so nice to re-connect with Joomi @capsuleshow this season. I am thrilled to see her latest collection is filled with color, textures and metal. Click these links to shop variations of the pieces above. Dark Romance isn’t out yet, so be sure to follow her tumblr for updates.
There was something so sweet, elegant and special about this knit dress by Risto. The design is a lady-like form fitted sheath with chiffon sleeves but the unique aspect is that it is constructed out of the same sort of crochet (or knitted, I’m not sure)fabric like the blankets that I used have from long lost, great aunts and grannies I never met when I was growing up. You probably have one in an attic somewhere as well. I love a dash of nostalgia in my clothes, don’t you?
