A little something to keep you warm!!!!
 
Think a weekend in Miami .... 
and a fantastic shopping spree at 
on "hip & happening"
Lincoln Road in South Beach!!!
 
And remember this sublimely curated collection 
of designer apparel & accessories 
is set in a glass & mirror 1800-square-foot 
transparent box
on the fifth floor of a parking garage!!! 
 
Not just any car park ....
but an amazing concrete "sculpture"
design by the dynamic Swiss architectural duo
 
Of course, my quirky eye was over-obsessed by the 
"outdoor furniture" around the store!!!
 
I was told the pieces were made from 
"left-over wood from the construction of the building,"
& they were designed by 
Herzog & de Meuron's design team!!!
 
"Accessoration's sublime" ......
Wouldn't you love them on your NYC terrace!!!!

I was walking around Mar Mikhael .....
the "new" West Village neighborhood in Beirut,
& I found these fabulous staircases!!!

I think they look fantastic ....
& have been thinking about painting the staircase 

What do you think???

I adored seeing Miami' gorgeous blue skies
filled with "artist's text"!!!
 
A site specific Public Art Project 
was curated by Adam Shopkorn,
featuring "text" from artists including 
It was supported by The Morgans Hotel Group,

Another of my favorite artist's projects was also 
floating above me!!!!  
Dave McKenzie's used "sky-banners,
for his daily "sky messages" .....
they were "unisex" marriage proposals!!!
DIVINE!!!!

My personal "accessoration supreme" is 
my signature white shirt!!! 
 
I have six fresh shirts made every year, 
thanks to shirtmaker Ascot Chang,
but, the original was a Martin Margiela shirt
I bought decades ago in LA
at  Maxfield!!!!!
 
So ..... when I saw Frédérique Chauveau's sublime 
"white shirt installation"
at the launch party for the collaboration between
Maison Martin Margiela  and H&M .....
I flipped!!!!
 
Isn't it amazing ..... 
all the things that can happen in a white shirt!!!!

Maison Martin Margiela + H&M = Divine Decadence!!!!

The talk of the "fashion universe" was last night's 
extraordinarily fabulous launch of the collaboration between
fashion genius Maison Martin Margiela 
& international retail giant H&M!!!
 
The clothes & accessories (available Nov 15 @ H&M) are divine,
but I absolutely adored & was overwhelmed by
the spectacular "over-the-top" inventive & exciting
installation of the merchandise
in the  most incredible location in NYC...
a "decayed urban treasure" that has been
abandoned for over a decade, 
and is spectacular!!!
 
In this case my pictures are worth ten thousand words!!!
 
Incredible "accessoration" ..... don't you agree!!!
