All About Annabelle

-------

For her debut capsule collection for French brand Faith Connexion, Annabelle Dexter-Jones didn’t have to look far for inspiration—she dug through old family photos of she and her siblings wearing their private school uniforms. “They are all clothes that you didn’t want to wear as a child, but you want to wear now,” she explains of the collection. The 25 pieces, including bow headbands, straight-leg jeans, a classic little black dress, and a red raincoat, are complete with a special “Annabelle” label designed by Dexter-Jones’ other half, André Saraiva. Here, a sneak peak at the actress in the design studio putting it all together.

Who Doesn’t Love A Two-For-One Deal?

-------

With Valentine’s Day approaching, we’ve been reflecting on our favorite fashion couples. Because when it comes to dressing, a pair of style aces is always better than one. Naturally, power duos like Brangelina or Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom made the cut; those genetic jackpot winners could make even burlap sacks look good. Still, you won’t find most of our matchups in the pages of Us Weekly. Model sweethearts Sheila Marquez and Christian Brylle look like they share a single closet. And we love Leelee Sobieski in a suit of her husband Adam Kimmel’s design. But André Saraiva and Annabelle Dexter-Jones take our top honors for their coordinating varsity jackets and jeans.

ADAM, Elizabeth Street’s Newest Resident

-------


“I want our stores to be a real environment where you can hang out, like a house,” says designer Adam Lippes, who opens his newest boutique today in Nolita. “Elizabeth Street is so beautiful and vibrant; it’s a place people like to go and have brunch.”

Brunchers will now be able to pick up Lippes’ namesake collection, as well as his collaborations with the jewelry label Lulu Frost and the handbag line he’s set to launch, which will be hanging on the racks at the new 1,008-square-foot space at 211 Elizabeth Street. Lippes included the same design elements from his Hudson Street store, like a hand-picked selection of antiques, photos (mostly from Lippes’ personal collection), and books, to create a similar cozy atmosphere in his second Manhattan outpost. On Thursday, the designer, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, and filmmaker Tracy Antonopoulos will all be on hand to celebrate the official opening of the store with a Fashion’s Night Out bash. As for his next shop, the downtown designer is looking to make the move uptown.

Meet The Muse: Tracy Antonopoulos

-------

Girl-about-town Natalie Joos spends her days casting for shows like ADAM and Yigal Azrouël and editorials for the likes of Mario Sorrenti and Mariano Vivanco, but her passion is vintage clothing. Joos’ blog, Tales of Endearment, spotlights Joos’ “Muses,” impeccably styled girls who share her secondhand obsession. In a new partnership with Style.com, Tales of Endearment’s subjects will preview their shoots right here on Style File.


Tracy Antonopoulos: complicated last name, simple rules of style. “Comfortable, pretty much always jeans and sneakers,” says Antonopoulos, who makes up the newest chapter in the Joos Tales. It’s the way Antonopoulos, a filmmaker/model, injects her outfits with a little glamour and spice that caught Joos’ attention. “None of the outfits she chooses for our shoot are coincidences,” Joos says. “Every detail, from watch to bobby pin to shoelaces, is artfully woven into the story of her outfit, down to the iPod and headphones she decides to climb in a tree with or the smiley face she wants to wear on an orange crochet dress.” Here, Antonopoulos (a.k.a. Spacey Tracey) tells Style.com what she’s been up to since she made her debut film with Gia Coppola and why kid style is, in her words, dope.





You have a lot of cool projects going on. I know you are a part of The Collaborative Agency with Annabelle Dexter-Jones and Gia Coppola, to name a few, and you have your Vans project. What are you working on right now, specifically?
I just collaborated on a video for Albert Hammond Jr.’s Web site that I am really excited about. I also shot and directed some videos for the Vans Girls campaign, called Create Your Mark. They [Vans] wanted to highlight girls who do cool things in different creative mediums. I helped put together an event at their new place in Brooklyn for that. We [Antonopoulos, Natalie Ziering, Clara Balzary, and Alia Penner] also did an all-girls zine and a little installation for that for that, too.

How would you describe your style?
It’s kind of tomboy. I never show too much skin, but then I would say there’s always something glamorous or something that makes it not just rolling-out-of-bed comfortable. Even if I don’t try to, my outfit always ends up looking a little crazy. It’s kind of like how little kids dress, they pick their favorites out of their closets and wear it all at once.

So, would you count kids as your style icons these days, or who do you admire, style-wise?
Well, I just moved uptown recently and all these little kids look so dope. They do their own thing. Right now, it’s a combination of different people. Rooney Mara, in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, her style is amazing (but I don’t know if I could ever pull that off). I wish I could my do my hair and shave my eyebrows like that and look that hot. It’s tomboy but sexy—very aggressive. And, I really like Alex Mack, she has a pretty good look going on. I also love Lilly Pulitzer and Palm Beach looks from the seventies, paired with Docs or something. Lily’s stuff now is too preppy yacht club, though.

What are you living in this summer?
I have been into these A.P.C. jeans I have—they are blue, but not denim. This vintage striped hoodie that almost looks like a cloak, high-top sneaks, and a studded all-black belt. I like to add fancy jewelry with my sporty look, too.

What are some of your most treasured pieces in your wardrobe?
I have this ring that my grandma left me. She also left me diamonds so my mom and I redesigned the ring and put it all into one. It’s vintage but modern with my own twist. Also, I love my Dr. Martens I have that are Robin’s egg blue and I have this fur coat that’s one of my favorites that is my great-grandma’s. It’s lined with something that looks like a Pucci print and she had her initials embroidered in it.

When you aren’t shopping in your grandma’s closet, where do you find your stuff?
I like going everywhere, like Metropolis on Third Avenue in New York and Scout in L.A. In Palm Beach there’s some good stuff coming from the older, extravagant ladies living there.

Finish this thought: What’s old is new again when… It comes from the heart.

Meet The Muse: Annabelle Dexter-Jones

Girl-about-town Natalie Joos spends her days casting for shows like ADAM and Yigal Azrouël and editorials for the likes of Mario Sorrenti and Mariano Vivanco, but her passion is vintage clothing. Joos’ blog, Tales of Endearment, which relaunches today in a chic new redesign by Buero’s Alex Wiederin, spotlights Joos’ “Muses,” impeccably styled girls who share her secondhand obsession. In a new partnership with Style.com, Tales of Endearment’s subjects will preview their shoots right here on Style File.

Annabelle Dexter-Jones is the baby of the sprawling Ronson/Dexter-Jones clan—which means that in her immediate family alone, she’s got rockers (her dad, Mick Jones of Foreigner; her brother, Mark Ronson), DJs (sister Samantha Ronson and brother Alexander Dexter-Jones), designers (sis Charlotte Ronson), and a legendary clotheshorse (mom Ann Dexter-Jones). And while she professes a desire to one day own her mother’s entire enviable stash of vintage, Dexter-Jones is doing just fine sourcing her own, from Courrèges to Alaïa. “She’s a real New Yorker, with style, poise, and a true affinity for vintage,” Joos says of her latest muse. “With minimal effort, she creates a style that suggests a less-is-more sentiment.” Annabelle spoke with Style.com about her philosophy of style—old and new.
