Strong Week Links 12

Cult fragrance brand Byredo has just opened its first US store in Soho, and published this fascinating interview with the brand's Creative Director, Ben Gorham on everything from the unique way the space was designed to accommodate discovering product and talking about bespoke creations to his project to create dream-inducing toothpaste (!!). This one will definitely be on the list for my next NYC visit.

Speaking of fragrance, this article on Glossier explains how to spray perfume so it lasts (hint, in your hair). I love the word sillage.

Mansur Gavriel designers Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel won the CFDA's Swarovski Award for Accessory Design this past week. At the event they revealed their plans to expand their line by wearing adorably coordinated new clothing, shoes and accessories they'd designed. If their minimal dresses, suede sandals and clutches are anywhere near as popular as their cult bucket bags, good luck getting your hands on them.

I feel like it's time for a chic barette.

It's finally starting to feel like summer, which means I'm looking forward to one of my favorite vegetarian grilling recipes.
