Following the tragic suicide of Isabella Blow,  Daphne Guinness purchased her entire wardrobe of clothes and accessories.  This now goes under the hammer today at Christie's South Kensington to raise funds for fashion student bursaries under the Isabella Blow Foundation to ensure Issie's name will survive long after her death in the industry she loved.

Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations

Met Museum of Art, NYC  to August 19
Simulated conversations directed by Baz Luhrmann focus on how Italian designers Elsa and Miuccia have taken very different approaches and how the past enlightens the present and the present enlivens the past.  Displays of both designers' collections are used to illustrate this premise.

NY Artist Aaron Young

We love him for his looks, his style - and last but not least, his incredibly diverse artistic talent "...a pure exploration of America and masculinity—minimalism on steroids.” He has exhibited internationally with the Gagosian gallery and is currently showing at The Company in Los Angeles. Young is also part of James Franco’s REBELexhibition at LA’s MOC.

Coco Says

A girl should be two things - classy and fabulous" said Coco, and she never missed a beat.  Check out her image taken Deauville in the early part of the last century.   We think the designer Visor pictured below fits her edict and the stylish Hat Gallery M/V in Kensington has agreed to give one away to ward the sun off and keep away those wrinkles during the Summer celebrations.  Simply Like and Share the Hat Gallery's FB page before Wimbledon ends to be in with a chance of winning.
