Raf Simons IS in at Dior

The Twitterverse is definitely in a tizzy today about Jil Sander heading back to her eponymous label and Raf Simons heading to Christian Dior as John Galliano’s official replacement. According to a good friend at LVMH, Raf Simons has already signed on at Dior and the announcement will be made shortly.

I interviewed Raf last year when he was Jury President for the Hyères Festival — he’s a wonderfully modest and humble person — I couldn’t be happier for him!

Carven Paris Fashion Week SS12

It’s no secret, I love Guillaume Henry for Carven. He’s the fashion industry’s current darling and definitely deserves the kudos — designing sweet, girly, gamine looks that would look perfect on the Alexa Chungs or Olivia Palermos of the world.

Sitting front row at his Paris Fashion Week presentation a few weeks ago were Inès de La Fressange and Isabelle Huppert and although the show took quite a while to start, we have to say well done Monsieur Henry for putting together your first real runway défilé! Hope to see you around our neighborhood very soon! (NB: Yes, we’re neighbors!)

Erdem Spring Summer 2012

I love a Spring Summer collection that actually looks ready for Spring Summer! Meaning something fresh, light, and above all, feminine. Erdem Moralioglu’s Spring Summer 2012 collection, presented on Monday during London Fashion Week, is for me, just pure perfection. I can picture Grace Kelly wearing some of these dresses in Monaco, circa Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch A Thief. In recent years Erdem has become quite a fashion favorite: Anna Wintour wore a jacket by him at the Nicole Farhi show in London and even Anna Dello Russo tweeted excitedly on Monday morning, “#LFW I’m going to ERDEM Fashion Show!”

In fact, Erdem almost designed my wedding dress! He was one of the first people I contacted when I got engaged, he was available, but he was also working on a few other bride’s dresses and because his schedule was very tight for fittings, I decided in the end to stay with a designer based in Paris. Even though I was over the moon about my dress in the end, I think I will always imagine “what if,” especially when I view a collection like this! ♥♥♥♥ Erdem…

The Art Fund

Vera Wang for Wedgwood Piggy Bank

How do you save to build an art collection? That’s one of the recurrent conversations the Hubby and I have had over the last few years. We both love art and we both agreed we wanted to put money aside in order to build our own collection. We even jokingly discussed getting our own piggy bank in order to penalize bad habits: he was supposed to put €20 in whenever he said, “shiiiiiiiiit” — a terrible habit he had picked up after watching 5 seasons of HBO’s The Wire back-to-back — and I was supposed to contribute whenever he discovered any discarded cups of tea around the house, a bad habit I have instead of immediately putting them into the dishwasher. So imagine my surprise when he came home this weekend with this adorable little piggy bank! A precious silverplate baby piggy bank from the Vera Wang Wedgwood collection. I guess we have no excuse to not start saving now!

Spring Summer is party perfect for fans of Jason Wu. Sitting front row at his New York Fashion Week presentation were Glee’s Lea Michele (chatting with Harper’s Bazaar editor Glenda Bailey), Top Chef”s Gail Simmons (hey, we love food!), Caroline Sieber, Harley Viera-Newton, Sara Rutson and Anna dello Russo, among others. From what we hear, the show after-party was particularly gorgeous, with guests surrounded by walls of roses and hydrangeas. We love Monsieur Wu!
