Revisiting Coco Chanel’s Apartment

code-coco-20-1507933824
Coco Chanel's hat shop first opened its doors at 21 rue Cambon in Paris. After finding success—and with it, the need to expand—the legendary designer moved operations down the street, to the now-iconic 31 locale in 1918. Purchasing the entire building, this is where Mademoiselle Chanel housed the new boutique, a presentation space for her collections, and her apartment, which has remained untouched today. Of course, calling it an apartment is a bit misleading as it is not a living space—there's no bedroom because she preferred the Ritz—but rather a parlor for entertainment. Over the past decades, this deeply-personal abode has captured the interests of countless, so it comes to no surprise that to commemorate its latest timepiece today, the...

7 Beach Style Secrets I Learned from Stylist Shiona Turini

MEREDITH ANDREWS PHOTOGRAPHY

The Bermuda native who's on the road for more than half the year would know.

With the holidays (and snow) on the horizon, we're sure you're eager to jet off to a tropical location. Visions of palm trees and rum swizzles may be dancing around in your head, but before you get too ahead of yourself you've got to pack those bags—and if you're anything like me, you think packing is the worst. So I reached out to stylist Shiona Turini for help. The Bermuda-native spends more than 200 days of the year on the road, often on her hometown island, so it's safe to say she knows what to bring with her and what to leave behind. Ahead, seven...

Why This Jewelry Designer Thinks Cultural Appropriation Is Misunderstood

image
There are two types of people in the world: Proprietors of the "arm party," the "ear party," and any other aptly named bodily fête who would feel naked without buying, collecting, and piling on jewelry; and those who, frankly, could care less. Minus a thin gold band I borrowed from my former roommate and never gave back, I fall in the latter category. And that's why I look up to/ am inspired by/ am fascinated with people like Arpana Rayamajhi, who doesn't just make — but wears — some of the most beautiful and intricate and colorful earrings and necklaces and more. Rayamajhi was born and raised in Nepal, something that continues to heavily influence her collections. After studying painting and sculpting...

What Happens When Two Jewelry Designers Journey To The City Of Gold

landscape-1502725721-colombiatravel
Fast fashion sales may be on the decline, but they still dominate more than its share of consumers, leaving indie designers on the fringe. That is where the Council of Fashion Designers of America steps in. While the non-profit foundation, founded by Eleanor Lambert in 1962, is known more for its flashy events and running New York Fashion Week, but the CFDA Incubator is where the real magic happens. The two-year program gives ten emerging fashion and accessory designers access to high-profile mentors and social media hubs (ahem, Facebook), business counseling, and so much more. But perhaps the biggest perk—or at least the chicest—is the trip of a lifetime. For Katie daGuzman and Michael Miller, the jewelry designers behind K/LLER Collection, that meant...

5 Style Secrets I Learned from Pamela Love

landscape-1502146898-pamela-love-headshot

"I believe that certain stones attract different energies."

Few designers have the good witch/bad bitch aesthetic covered quite like Pamela Love. The New York native makes jewelry magic with precious metals and super-charged stones, and has turned bolder looks like stacked rings and ear cuffs into daytime must-haves for creative women worldwidew—when Zoe Kravitz flips off the paparazzi, she wears Pamela Love rings to do it. Now Love has her first standalone store experience thanks to the CFDA's Retail Lab, a space at Cadillac House that indoctrinates fashion's next generation into in-person sales, along with tech help from Accenture. "It's my first experience having a retail space," she explained at her store's opening dinner, which happened at Cherchez Midi in downtown New York. "We're learning...

Vanda Jacintho Jewelry

My jewelry choices are always evolving (and revolving) and thanks to the discovery of Brazilian designer Vanda Jacintho’s accessories collection, I’ve been lured back on the statement jewelry wagon. I’m loving all the oversized wood and resin bangles and necklaces and mismatched, shoulder sweeping earrings. Bold and so beautiful.
