It’s been a little while since we’ve featured one of our favorite style icons Chloe Sevigny, but don’t think we haven’t been keeping tabs! This week’s segment of “A Chloë Moment” has Chloe Sevigny wearing a selection from vintage Chloe (the brand, not the woman). In fact, this marvelous violin dress was designed by none other than Karl Lagerfeld in 1983. That’s right, 1983!
I can hardly express how relevant this piece is today with its sultry side cutouts that wrap around the back, and the midi length sheath that is so in right now. The transition from funnel neckline to cap sleeves is as smooth as butter, but the embellished violin motif is seriously out-of-this world. Embroidered with pearls, metallic thread, and a few scattered rhinestones climbing up the neck, the whole gold-over-black ensemble “goes for Baroque” and comes out super-stunning!
Amsterdam-based designer, Floor Knaapen, translates a fresh European aesthetic in her latest design project for Dutch design magazine, Eigen Huis & Interieur. With plenty of blushing pink, pastels, and the occasional iridescent accent, Knaapen combines her love of “…design, fashion, architecture and daily life” into a crisp, coming-of-age collection with a chic, twenty-something vibe.
Curious objects are just one facet of these well-curated assemblages involving everything from a two-story high-low hem dress paired with stratosphere-skimming platform heels, and simple crocheted swatches beside colorful journals and a leather fanny pack that somehow seems right at home.
Put a little sparkle in your day with the newest album from indie-folk artist Josh Rouse. If you’re the kind of girl who puts on an album when you’re getting ready in the morning, “The Happiness Waltz” will get you going with Rouse’s soft, velvety voice, upbeat piano chords, and head-bobbing beats. Stuck in a traffic jam? Chilling out with friends? Switch on the lighthearted melodies of this Nebraska-born singer-songwriter and let the lounge-y habits and occasional seventies vibes work their magic.
