Bergdorf Goodman shared this exclusive video of a conversation between 85-year old Personal Shopper Betty Halbreich and Isaac Mizrahi. This is a bonus clip with the two of them discussing questions from Bergdorf Goodman twitter followers. Be sure to watch the documentary Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s (which btw, was a good read), debuting this Friday in theaters across New York City and Los Angeles.
Somehow it feels as if the whole world is touting and hyping The Great Gatsby (2013) as the movie of the year. I’ve read the book (by F. Scott Fitzgerald) and saw the 1974 film a long time ago but I want to see Baz Luhrmann’s epic rendition purely for the stunning production and visuals.
Uniqlo’s Design Director Naoki Takizawa hosted a lovely breakfast yesterday morning at Industria Studios to present the latest Lifewear 2013 fall/winter collection. My beloved Nicola Formichetti styled and grouped the collection in different projects featuring Uniqlo’s cool classics — Heattech, Ultra Light Down, Fleece, Silk, Cashmere, Cotton Flannel and Ultra Stretch Jeans. I’m a HUGE fan of Uniqlo — I stockpile their cashmeres so imagine the delight when I saw the colorblocked cashmere sweaters. I also love how they combined multiple plaid prints in a single flannel shirt. Don’t get me started with the fluffy, cotton candy-esque pastel fishnet wigaloo situation; that’s a DIY project waiting to happen.

Oh Rita Ora. Not only I was impressed to see her perform in person, I must say that I was truly impressed by her personal style transformation as well. She looked s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g in Calvin Klein.

Greetings from Basel! Calvin Klein flew me to Switzerland as one of their guests for this year’s BaselWorld exhibition. To those of you who are not familiar of BaselWorld, it’s the biggest watch and jewelry fair in the world. It’s my first time to attend the fair. Don’t be misled by the word ‘fair’ though. BaselWorld 2013 was set up to resemble a giant shopping mall with some of the biggest watch and jewelry brands setting up conceptualized “booths” that looked like their actual retail stores. It was a no-expense-barred event and it was fascinating to see what everyone came up with.
It was lovely reuniting with familiar and friendly faces in addition to the Calvin Klein team and Executives: my ultra chic friend Lily Kwong flew in from Gabon, Laura Burdese, Calvin Klein tumblr contributor Hanneli Mustaparta and Ulrich Grimm who is the Creative Director of both Men’s & Women’s Shoes and Accessories. Rita Ora performed at the celebratory party in the evening and my beloved DJ Mike Nouveau spinned at the festivities.
The new Calvin Klein watches and jewelry collection features clean lines and characteristic curved metal surfaces. Some of the highlights from the 2013 line include the ck dress watch, the unisex ck eager timepiece, the ck classic watch that has been newly redesigned for 2013 and ck undulate, a key jewelry offering for the season including two pendant necklaces, rings and delicate earrings that showcase sleek and rounded shapes. Overall, the new collection can be described as sleek, elegant and ultra functional. Totally in synch with the brand’s modern and minimalist DNA. Very Calvin Klein.
