remembering audrey

Everywhere I turn, people are abuzz about Vanity Fair’s beautiful May cover starring a doe-eyed Audrey Hepburn. The fanfare reminds me of the May 2003 issue of Town & Country, which also featured an interview with one of Ms. Hepburn’s sons and a forensic look at her elegant style. I quite enjoyed reviewing the piece again, and am especially fond of the bulleted “Did You Know” facts. I had forgotten that Audrey was discovered by Colette at Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, which is kind of fun to think about (…says the history nerd). Anywho, the entire article in question can be found here. I hope it’s enough to hold you over ‘til you can get your hands on the newest Vanity Fair : )

monday's muse: catherine baba

Here are a few things you should know about stylist Catherine Baba: she bikes to Couture shows in 5” heels. She obsessively reads Colette. She’s inspired by old Cecil Beaton photographs and only wears vintage fur. Her signature scent? YSL Opium.  

Baba, posing above in her Montparnasse flat for 10 Magazine, is one of the most fascinating people to watch. Dubbed Paris’ Most Stylish Woman, she’s in the same fashion echelons as Iris Apfel, Peggy Guggenheim and Mona Bismarck (oh, to be among their ranks!). Want to see more? Read this and browse this :) Happy Monday, darlings!

want of the day

This pretty silk “foulard” from Olympia Le Tan’s Autumn 2011 collection, currently for sale at Colette, caught my eye the other day. The piece is from Ms. Le Tan’s newest collection, which was inspired by the life of a typical 1950s housewife. Don’t you love? It’s only $240 dollars - the deal of a century, if you ask me :)

an argument for looking at books instead of reading them

In 2006, Andy Spade curated the above installation celebrating beautiful book covers, posters and post cards for his beloved handbag company. After traveling to Japan, the installation, aptly titled, “An Argument for Looking at Books Instead of Reading Them,” ended at Colette (the famous French department store that I so longingly want to visit!). Of the exhibit, Colette noted, “...Andy is as impressed with striking, unusual book jackets as he is with quality literature. From art exhibition catalogs found in second-hand bins to rare first edition titles, the book collection has been built to surround Kate Spade product and give dimension to the company’s aesthetic.” I would just die to have some of these pieces hanging on my wall... wouldn’t you?!
