Feathered Friends

Birds influence human behavior in interesting ways.  Go-getters rise with the sun to catch the auspicious worm.  Snowbirds migrate to warmer climates to soak up the sun rather than bundle up in down coats.  Birdwatchers imitate the sounds of birds to attract their feathered friends to a nearby tree.  And determined teammates flock together because they’re all in it together.

Clear-Eyed Athena

Athena would like the latest collection by Proenza Schouler.  As the guardian of weavers, she would approve of the sweaters made from fine merino wool.  As a sage advisor, the daughter of Zeus would probably wear the indomitable leather belt when bestowing wisdom upon the brave.  And as someone who often appeared in disguise, she would appreciate the unusual shadow prints that trick the eye. 





A solid black lapel and cuffs give this otherwise classically styled herringbone coat a graphic punch. Style Name: Proenza Schouler Contrast Lapel Herringbone Wool Blend Coat.

From Subliminal to Sublime

Like an overnight package delivered to your door, some dreams arrive with an urgent message that requires your immediate attention. The brilliant colors make it impossible to ignore.  The setting is familiar, yet bewildering.  The dream overshadows your morning as though it’s waiting for a response.  Subliminal images of a young girl running through a gold field conjures a nostalgic mood.  She’s clutching a shiny object in her left hand.  A green sky obscures the light.  The soundtrack—music from another decade—ends abruptly on a song that you can’t get out of your head. 





This double-face jacquard sweater-coat reverses from a striking cubist pattern to a solid hue, making it a versatile, timeless option for transitioning seasons. Style Name: Akris Belted Reversible Sweater Coat.

Free Spirits

Free spirits don’t fear the unknown. They face the future with confidence instead of dwelling on the past.  Free spirits treasure independence—the space where creativity flourishes.  They prefer the freedom of the open road over a one-way street, lest they become too restless.  It’s the unexpected detours to scenic places where a free spirit discovers that a generous heart soothes a rebellious soul.

Bien Habillé

When you live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, style is an avocation.  It’s a talent that’s developed from living in a vibrant city with prominent architecture and splendid gardens.  It’s intrinsic to a culture that values joie de vivre.  Indeed, it’s Parisian.

L'Origami

Dressmaking, like origami, uses various folds to achieve geometric shapes from flat material.  A designer can visualize the garment in a piece of fabric before making the pattern, whereas an origami artist can see the three dimensional shape in a square sheet of paper before making the folds.  A vivid spatial imagination enables the artist to see the material’s potential before constructing a beautiful work of art that can be displayed—or worn—for all to admire.







Origami-inspired seaming puffs out the sleeves of this mini-length shift made from Japanese twill with the perfect balance of structure and drape. Style Name: Tibi Origami Sleeve Chalky Drape Shift Minidress.

ZigZag Pizzazz

Missoni’s signature zigzag pattern is like an electric current that excites the senses.  The distinctive weave of Missoni knitwear has an unmistakable texture that feels sumptuous and authentic.  Deluxe separates like the mixed pattern cardigan hugs your curves with a custom fit that stays true to form throughout the day.  A lightweight cape has a breezy weave that caresses your shoulders; a multi-colored scarf adds pizzazz to a white pullover; and the classic triangle bikini—a geometric marvel—is unequivocal and so magnifico.
