Here are my latest finds and news from style, fashion, film, design and beautiful living.
• Stripped of any kind of embellishment, Kerrie Yeung jewelry is a study in simplicity and craftsmanship. Kerrie’s minimalist designs, handcrafted in the designer’s studio in Brooklyn, are beautiful and delicate. They are pieces that make a subtle statement and evoke a perfectly undone elegance. New classics.
• Anya Caliendo will present her SS 2014 Collection of Couture Hats, “Confessions” at New York Fashion Week this September. Congratulations, Anya!
• Until Woody Allen’s new film, Blue Jasmine, arrives in our cinemas (can not wait to see Cate Blanchett!), I loved reading Mary Jo’s great post on the fashion in the movie
• And as long as we are on the subject, here is praising the undone beauty of Woody Allen’s female leads
• Hartwood is a Mexican, farm to table, 100% solar powered restaurant where all meals are created by hand (no electrical appliances!). It’s all about getting back to the basics, using slow roasting and open fire cooking to prepare meals for diners.
• A Swedish Love Story (1970), by Roy Andersson: one of the most beautiful teenage love stories seen on screen
• A gorgeous lavender farm photographed on film – that’s what makes it all the more special
• Cristóbal Balenciaga in his French manor home
• Workshop: saddler and leather craftsman Philippe Le Noën. I’ve just discovered Fantastic Provence, a magazine brimming with lifestyle inspiration. Have a look!
I wish you a wonderful weekend, filled with laughter and good times!
