Spring has sprung

Spring has sprung in New York City. Oversized down coats and huge sheep lined boots are officially things of the past. Although I do not expect the 70 degree weather that we have recently been blessed with taking hold in mid-March, I’m seeing a brighter future ahead. And, yet another excuse to let myself indulge […]

CO-OP Obsession: Dunderdon

I couldn’t be more thrilled to store my heavy winter coats and run up to Madison to purchase this amazing Dunderdon *exclusive* to Barneys anorak. When I tell you I was stalking our CO-OP managers for when they first hit the floor, I mean it. It is perfect for rainy days just like today, and […]

Spring Bridge

After one seriously grueling winter, the following took place all within the span of a week: the time changed – lost an hour (which actually helped immensely with jet lag recovery), but the days became immediately and noticeably longer. Duro Olowu trunk show and personal appearance at Madison – total color explosion. On the way […]

Here, photographers Frank Krumrie and Cindy Romano are on set fine tuning the details […]

Dead Cool: Anna May Wong

As featured in The Daily Beast:: Sexy Beast by Simon Doonan With the Oscars approaching, Simon Doonan says we should all take a minute to remember leggy, resilient Anna May Wong, the first Chinese-American movie star. The colonics are gurgling. The limos are buffed and gleaming, as are the gym-toned torsos of their soon-to-be occupants. […]
