FLORAL RETREAT

the other day i came across this magnificent picture of a huge arrangement of wild flowers in a big basket on top of a william kent style bench in an outdoor covered space. i immediately saved it and put on my mood board. after a little research i found out it was an image of peter copping’s, former creative director of oscar de la renta, retreat in normandy. 

here is a tour of the house recently in architectural digest. this got me thinking- don’t we all need a floral retreat? i think i do!

CANNES COUNTDOWN

every year cannes rolls out the largest red carpet on the planet for the cannes film festival. the 2017 cannes film festival has started, the red carpet is big and the ladies walking on the carpet are as glamorous as ever. 

cannes always welcomes the outlandish, there are always a lot of looks just to get attention, but this year the fashion seems much more tasteful. tilda swinton as always is leading the charge. she always gets that perfect mix of edgy and classic just right. 

the true test is how to steal all the attention, but also be classic and elegant. this year kendall jenner does it in a floral gown by giambattista valli. took my breath away.

Margaux / MDS Stripes

SHOE STRIPES

if you think about a woman’s wardrobe, two things that are a must are an espadrille and a striped tee….both classics that are timeless and necessary. these two classics are so great we decided to put them together.

i’m so excited to announce the collaboration of mds stripes with margaux. margaux is a shoe brand that makes exquisitely crafted ballerina flats. we cannot think of a better partner for mds stripes to collaborate with. margaux believes in all-american style as much as we do. margaux’s comfort and craftsmanship mixed with out feminine twist on the classic stripe, it’s a marriage made in striped heaven. 

shop our new espadrille here. there are two styles that come with interchangeable in black grosgrain and our MDS signature stripe. i don’t know about you, but i’m in love with our new shoe stripes!
