Strong Week Links 28



D.S. & Durga just announced that they're now producing samples of their lovely, complex scents. I smell the next test fest coming on.

If money were no object: this new Hermès furniture.

Solange Knowles just launched e-commerce on her site Saint Heron.  It's filled with (surprisingly affordable) fashion, beauty and even candy created by a group of diverse designers. If you love her totally on-point Instagram, you'll love the vibes and editorial shots. I'd be excited to try this prickly pear face serum (love everything prickly pear).

Coveting one of these super tall, super wide-brimmed Stetson hats designed in collaboration with photographer Tasya van Ree.

Totally obsessed with this song right now.

Bar Method


Why have a light fixture when you can have a light sculpture? Especially one that matches your favorite never-take-it-out earring by Kathleen Whitaker.

Rodarte Is More Radarte Than Ever

Rodarte & Other Stories Radarte

Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sisters behind the complex and beautiful line Rodarte, are set to release a collaboration with H&M spinoff & Other Stories (now available stateside since first writing). It's set to drop next Thursday, and while that's exciting on its own (I've got my eye on the pajama shirts and shearling jacket), what really got my attention was the Spotify playlist they put together to coincide with the launch. They're girls after my own heart, and it's made up of exactly what i'd put on a roadtrip-ready mix — Gerry Rafferty aka the Raff, El Condor Pasa, Harry Nilsson — plus some stuff I wouldn't have thought of. Much like the way food always tastes better when someone else makes it for you, I find music has an extra bit of magic and appeal when someone else plays it for you. May finally be time to invest in one of those Radarte sweatshirts.

Strong Week Links 27











On a recent trip to LA I had the chance to visit The RealReal's new LA fine jewelry office and write a feature on RealStyle. It was designed by The Row's interior designer Courtney Applebaum and it's probably the chicest gemology space you'll ever see. It's filled with antique rugs and vintage 20th century furniture (fueling an obsession with Jean Prouvé, Jean Royere + Bruno Mathsson) set against spare concrete floors, and I pretty much wanted to move in. More pics and the full post including an interview with Courtney here.

I love my classic Albano Waite, but this new tarot deck from The Dreslyn has a clean, modern look that I'd love to add to my collection.

I'm normally not much one for diamonds, but paired with organic beachstones, these are pretty cool (and they have a great Insta).

I've been looking for the perfect crossbody bag and I'm thinking this one is a contender.

Looking for an album to put on repeat? This has been mine lately.

When it comes to makeup, I usually go for ultra-bright colors for lips and classic black for eyeliner and mascara. But on a whim, I opted for this brown eyeliner from natural makeup line Alima. Excited to mix it up with a neutral (wild and crazy, I know).

Sies Marjan

Sies Marjan Fall 2016

The debut show for new label Sies Marjan, designed by Dries Van Noten alum Sander Lak, got a lot of buzz at New York Fashion Week with the attendance of influential editors, writers and buyers. The silhouettes were recognizable, but looked loose, fresh and elevated yet wearable. I dig the ever-so-slightly, elegantly rumpled vibe of a lot of the drapey, tucked-in pieces (huge fan of the half-tuck as a quick styling move). It will be interesting to see if the bloom stays on the rose in coming seasons.
