CATZORANGE-STUDIO-executive-suite-glasses-the-row-lisa-jahovic-sicky-magazine-Elsa-Peretti-bottle-pendant-necklace-for-Halston-1970s-desmittenWith Spring in full swing, my mind is on textured whites, geometric round bags in organic materials, new frames, vintage statement jewelry and simple flora reflections. What are you looking forward to for Spring?

HEA Ceramics

hea-ceramics-by-hana-el-assad-desmitten

In a city like New York, we come across many multi-talented people on a daily basis. I met Hana El-Assad on a video shoot that I was styling, she was doing makeup and we started discussing what it was like to have something of our own. She went on to tell me that she was a graduate of culinary school and showed me a few photos of her handmade mugs. It’s been a while since our paths have crossed, but I was thrilled to come across this image on my instagram feed featuring her work for HEA Ceramics. With organic shapes and speckled glazes, HEA ceramics add an element of warmth to any tablescape. Shop HEA ceramics here or follow along on instagram to explore Hana’s process.

Bibi Cornejo Borthwick for Joseph Fall 2017

During fashion month, the runway shows are aw-inspiring, but my favorite images come from behind the scenes and street style. For Fall 2017, Bibi Cornejo Borthwick (yes the daughter of one of my favorite New York designers, Maria Cornejo and famed photographer Mark Borthwick) captured the subtle nuances of the Joseph collection. A creative in her own right, her images are both simple but stunning. From extended plackets and spherical buttons to monochrome looks and barely-there beauty, here are some of my favorite images.

Interior Inspiration: Santa Clara 1728 Hotel

Apologies for the temporary pause in posting. Today I am dreaming of a tranquil, relaxing getaway to Lisbon, Portugal. The Santa Clara 1728 hotel is located in the old cultural quarter of the city. The 18th century building offers an old world feeling while the interior’s modern amenities make guest feel right at home.

French Trench Style

The rain from Paris fashion week has shifted to New York, and we have plenty of French trench style to inspire us, thanks to Phil Oh. He captured the glitterati donning their best overcoats and stepping up the layering game. Coats over jackets over shirts over knits, anything goes. From avant-garde to menswear inspired, the outerwear staple of the season has never looked better.
