"Sunday Runway - Tendrils . . . "

Patrick Sullivan in the Ralph Lauren ad campaign Fall 2012


It's often quite nice to put a name with a face . . . and as we often do around these parts, I like to make sure everyone's "Hello.  My Name is" tags are properly filled out.

You'll most likely recognize him immediately - those long, dark tendrils and brooding good looks have graced the magazine pages and the fashion runways for numerous seasons - a regular player in a long line of Ralph Lauren print adverts . . . or on the runway for Michael Bastian

So . . . enjoy a few moments with Patrick Sullivan . . .

"Orange You Glad . . . "


With the proper Fall season quickly making its way towards us . . . I thought I'd spend a little time hashing about with some of my favourite autumn colours.  And clearly, orange is going to top that list.  It's not a shade that I'm able to use very often within my own home - but luckily, I have some very bold clients who let me scatter rich, warm shades of orange in their homes.

Take a peek at a few of our inspirational images from one of our current projects . . .

Orange you glad to stopped by?

"Sunday Runway - Fashion Week Highlights . . . "


It's Sunday.  Let's look at pretty clothes.  I thought I'd take you on a quick tour through some of my favourite shows from the last 10 days of Fashion Week in New York.

Thom Browne - Spring 2014 

And, yes.  Thom Browne.  His shows are ALWAYS way out on the cutting edge . . . but, they are also often some of my favourites each season.  Just take a look at this - and, yes . . . don't get too caught up in the theatrics of the styling . . . 'cause that dress is a complete work of art.  It almost reminds of of those amazing Alexander McQueen shows of days gone by.  You can see the rest of his show here

What's your favourite?

"Colour. Scheming . . . "


We're working on a little project around these parts and it has involved pulling various colour inspirations.  We've been tacking pictures on boards in the office . . . and I thought I'd share a few of my favourites with y'all.

It's clearly a lush, autumnal palette . . . but, with a bit more vibrancy than one might expect.

Have a peek . . . and let me know your favourite . . .

"Sunday Runway - Michael Bastian Spring 2014 . . . "

Greetings all!

I thought we'd get back into our regular "Sunday Runway" musings with some fresh, stylish goodness from our old favourite Michael Bastian and his recent Spring 2014 Fashion Week show.   Bright graphic prints.  Confident sex appeal.  Insouciant style. Drawing inspiration from the film "The Red Balloon" and lush scent of the South of France. But, remember - as Michael stated on the invitation to the show, "French men always break your heart." 

There're several things that'll need to be in my closet soon!  

Have a look . . . do you have a favourite ?
