It's unbelievable the difference a week makes. Last weekend it was close to 90ºF in New York and just this weekend it was only hovering around the upper 60's and low 70's. The cold spike is already causing me to look back at our summer that was much too short. At least I have hours of NYFW slideshows to scan through, that feature trends which are already giving me hope for the seasons ahead. One apparent trend is the complete looks outfitted in layers of whites and off-whites, seen across the board, from high-end luxury labels to the contemporary designers. In my opinion, the best variations came from The Row where they experimented with wrapping textiles across the torso, and Lela Rose, who utilized luxe metallic patterned textiles, shaped into the ultra feminine, classic silhouettes - like fit and flair and A- lines.
Of course I find myself relating these fashion looks back to my favorite genre of interiors. Where else have I seen a similar trend even on a much smaller scale, but in the Vogue Living Australia May/June issue that features the Danish family home of CEO and president of Fritz Hansen, Jacob Holm and his wife Fabara Bendix Becker. The palette is light, pale and cool with the blush tones of the swan chair standing out.
Here's to hoping this upcoming winter isn't too long or brutal this year. If it is I will surely need an extra beach vacation.
