Exhibit: Cubism in Every Day Wear

Exhibit: Cubism in Every Day Wear

It may be the first time someone’s asked you to ask yourself: How can I incorporate cubism into my personal style? We’re hoping you already do – at least with your jewelry. As a jewelry brand  it’s no secret we’re completely obsessed with shapes, shades and geometry.  So it’s no surprise how excited we are for this week’s exhibition opening at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which will celebrate four early twentieth century cubist artists.

Braque, Leger, Gris, Picasso...we’re not sure these artists expected us to incorporate their aesthetic into our personal style, but we can’t imagine they’d be disappointed we did so. We perused and curated our favorite picks for home décor, clothing and accessories inspired by all things of the cubist persuasion…

1. Kelly Wearstler Oragami Box

2. J.W. Anderson Sweater

3. Issa Patterned Coat

4. Pierre Hardy Clutch

5. Roksanda Ilincic Dress

6. Tamara Mellon Boots

7. Monica Rich Kosann Triple Row Mosaic Bracelet

8. Monica Rich Kosann Rose Gold Pyramid Clutch

9. Rani Arabella Chess Pillow

10. Nason Moretti Tumbler Set

The Art Of The Handwritten Note: Inspired by Matisse’s Cutouts

The Art Of The Handwritten Note: Inspired by Matisse’s Cutouts

Starting October 12th, the MOMA will be celebrating Henri Matisse’s cutouts (a style he turned to exclusively in the 1940’s) through a 5-month-long exhibition displaying approximately 100 of his pieces. While exploring some of the cutouts ourselves, we couldn’t help but see certain similarities between Matisse’s paintings and our favorite stationery collections.

As dedicated admirers of all things timeless, we are – and always will be – astute believers in the art of the handwritten note. In a sea of e-cards, texting, and tweeting, we’re still suckers for delicious stationary packaging and letter-pressed artfulness.

Here are some of our favorite Matisse cutouts juxtaposed with the custom stationery that – we think – keeps the written note alive…

Exhibit: Gary Winograd at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Exhibit: Gary Winograd at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

This summer, we couldn't help but fall in love with the Garry Winogrand exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibition was less a collection of photography, but rather more a kind of tour through 20th century America. There was New York street style (yes, we said street style) in the  60s, wild times in Los Angeles in the 70's and most of all the nightclub - El Morocco - in the 50's.

There were a couple reasons why the chronicling of this NYC hotspot was our favorite part of the exhibit. One is that Le Morocco was the social epicenter of the city - much like Studio 54, Elaine's or Le Cirque - a concept that doesn't seem to exist anymore. Maybe it's because now there are more options out there, but there's romance in the notion of one spot where everyone who's anyone can be found on a Saturday night. The proprietors of these hotspots - characters like Sirio Maccioni - were more ringmasters than owners; playing a constant game of musical chairs with New York's elite.

The second - and perhaps most important - reason we loved this particular part of the exhibition, is that the woman in Winogrand's famous El Morocco photograph (who's laughing at her dance partner), teases us with earrings and a an ever so subtle band on her finger. The same goes for the woman in a different photograph drinking champagne with the man next to her, boasting earrings, a choker and a ring. It's these pieces we'd love to know the story behind, and we can only imagine the gems and jewels that walked in and out of those nightclub doors. Woody Allen would say we're victims of Golden Age Syndrome, but really we just feel certain things are timeless, like the mystery behind a woman's jewelry...

*The exhibit runs through September 21
