At first sight of the film A Single Man, I immediately found myself submerged into the world of Tom Ford. The sophistication and elusive emotion the film carries throughout drew me to further delve into the presence of Ford. His iconic designs for Gucci & YSL that changed the powerhouse Gucci Group will be forever praised. His natural ability to carry out cohesive and prestigious collections is a gift to us. Fords Fall 2015 ready to wear collection is nothing short of rock star sumptuous. Elongated lines, 70’s influence patchwork, fringe and cirlce scoopnecks define my favorites below. images by Allesandro Garofalo courtesty of Style.com
Sevigny was the 90’s “it girl” who made you feel uncomfortable in Kids, made you feel sorry for her in Gummo and was kind of forgettable in American Psycho. She was the star you adored in Sonic Youths Sugar Kane music video as she parades down NYC streets and ends up on a fashion runway. Her flair for vintage clothing and eccentric style always make her one to watch. Her most recent efforts include her 2015 S/S collaboration with Opening Ceremony (some of it’s on sale now), the release of her photo book Chloe Sevigny with a forward by Kim Gordon. Later this year we can look forward to her seeing her in the upcoming film, #Horror starring Taryn Manning and Natasha Lyonne.
Today’s forecast of shadowy clouds and longing breeze makes it a day to remember Dave Gahan’s 90’s fashion. Smudged eyeliner with metallic eye-shadow, long hair and heroin chic coats. We need more of this, remember when this was cool?

Diana Vreeland’s free spirit and colorful personality shine through in the new book, Diana Vreeland Memos: The Vogue Years. If you’re a fan of fashion and the great Vreeland you’re going to want this book. The layout is filled with copies of Mrs. Vreelands memos written on lovely Conde Naste Stationary. It’s known that she was not a fan of meetings and sent out memos and daily correspondence filled with idea’s and inspiration taken from designers and pop culture. This amazing collection of memos is edited by Alexander Vreeland grandson of Diana and president of the Diana Vreeland Estate. I am so excited to have this book that’s filled with idea’s typed up and edited in visible marker by Mrs. Vreeland. It’s motivating me to read at least one page each day for daily inspiration. In this book you will also find beautiful photographs and contributions from former Vogue Fashion Editor, Polly Mellen and former Vogue Editor in Cheif Grace Mirabella. This great piece of Conde Naste history will also make a great gift and coffee table book, it’s a definite must read!

In LA it’s been 70 degrees and its starting to feel like fall, finally! Wildfox Couture’s pairing of over-sized sweaters with shorts sums up California weather, where it’s never too cold. Throughout this visual promenade I love the mix of polka dots, florals and sequins. Sequins! The holidays are creeping up on us! You can see the rest of WC lookbooks here.
