I kicked off New York Fashion Week with a full-on love affair of Barneys‘ Spring vision. Tomoko Ogura and Simon Doonan invited a handful of their favorite online style writers to a dinner at Fred’s. The fun of it all was a jump up jump up and get down so get out your seats and jump around moment in my mind. Chatting with the voices behind Babe Walker and Honestly…WTF, a posse of editors from Fashionista, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour + more, and the fabulous Barneys PR team was a delight. Almost as delightful as the final course, a hot fudge brownie sundae.
Actually, I take that back. Having a moment with the hilarious, dapper and charming Simon Doonan really melted the chocolate. Forgive the red-eye-photo-on-the-fly, but it must be shared for Simon and I discovered a mutual adoration of Poitiers, France, French tunes, and a joke about being Charlotte.
Stay tuned for near future posts of industrial vibe jewelry, hand-dyed creations and pieces inspired by comic book heroes, nature and cashmere blankets. Oh, and p.s. you can peek in person as items are in stores now. Remember these three themes, kids: Neo-Modern, Desk to Dinner and Malibu Nation. Now, without further ado, feast your eyes on a Saint Laurent frock fest.
