Here Kitty Kitty

With summer in full swing, we have seen some great shoes hit the street.
One favorite seen on the NYC subway was an adorable kitten flat, that looks great with a summer dress or skinny pant. One designer that has capped on this trend is one of our favorite shoe designer, Charlotte Olympia. And it's now expanded to the whole animal kingdom! See below for some of our favorite versions

Rock 'N' Float

We recently became obsessed with jewelry designer, Cecile Zu Hohenlohe. She has some serious rocks on her gorgeous rings using precious, semi-precious stones and special materials found from around the world. Mixing stones like Aquamarine with Lava Stone, White Coral with Ganges River Stone and Red Coral with Turquoise, the colors and compositions are stunning. Each piece is unique and seem to float on the hand. We can't imagine a more beautiful statement. To see more check it out here.

Inspiration on the Bowery: Duro Olowu Opening at Salon 94

At the opening reception Duro Olowu: More Material at Salon 94 gallery, we found great inspiration in this curated show as well as the fashion crowd that attended.

Inspired by his Nigerian-Jamaican heritage and London upbringing, fashion designer Duro Olowu brings together both contemporary and vintage pieces. Art, ceramics, furniture, jewelry and clothing made for a fantastic show and the reception brought together a great fashion crowd as well. Many at the opening wore bold and colorful clothing, African inspired jewelry and patterns.

Works include photography by Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, Juergen Teller, art by Rachel Feinstein and Stanley Whitney and some of my favorites were illustrations by Antonio Lopez and Antonio Pippolini.

Alongside the show is a great pop-up shop, where you can buy accessories and specially made clothing for the show by the designer.
