Designer Diary: Clare Waight Keller’s Postcard From L.A.

-------

Last week, Chloé designer Clare Waight Keller and her family flew from Paris to Los Angeles—partially for work, but also for pleasure. Here, she shares her snapshots of surfers, palm tree forests, and vintage vans exclusively with Style.com.

Coachella Valley Preserve

Surrounded by a forest of palms in the Coachella Valley Preserve, where the palm trees reach seven stories high. They are the most incredible sight and grow around an oasis, which is so peaceful and otherworldly you can’t believe it is only two hours from L.A.

Temperature in California

The amazing temperature in California. I love it!

Hiking

On my day off before heading to L.A., I hiked on the top of the San Jacinto Mountains in Palm Desert. It’s one of the highest peaks in California at 8,250 feet, with a vertical climb to 10,500 feet. It is absolutely stunning. There’s incredibly fresh air and the smell of pine trees and amazing views. You go from desert cactus at the bottom of the mountain to snow at the top!

Surfers at Santa Monica Beach

Surfers early on Sunday morning. I always head down to Santa Monica Beach to see them out on the waves. Continue Reading “Designer Diary: Clare Waight Keller’s Postcard From L.A.” »

Clamdiggin With Simone Camille

-------

Simone Camille x Clamdiggin

Another collaboration? Don’t stop reading yet—this isn’t your average mash-up. West Coast art stars Kevin Johnson and Alexandra Fisher of Clamdiggin have joined forces with handbag designer Simone Harouche to create a truly original collection. “Clamdiggin painted my son’s nursery, and I have been obsessed with them ever since,” Harouche told Style.com. “Their aesthetics are all very organic and fluid. I knew I wanted to work with them on something special.”

Best known for her handbags made of antique textiles (and for styling celebs like Nicole Richie), Harouche asked Fisher and Johnson to hand-paint twenty-five New Zealand deerskin bags. Backpacks, flat clutches, and structured satchels got the Clamdiggin treatment and were embellished with the swirling, nature-inspired illustrations that have become the duo’s signature.

Typically, Johnson and Fisher work on a much larger scale—they painted the giant slate murals at Spago Beverly Hills and designed wall coverings for Kelly Wearstler. “As varied and whimsical as some of their subjects may be, it somehow all works together in one beautiful story,” Harouche said. “I like to think my design aesthetic for Simone Camille handbags is the same.”

Simone Camille x Clamdiggin handbags start at $1,200 and will be available from November 1 at Just One Eye in Los Angeles or online at www.simonecamille.com.

The Fashion Friendly Guide to Los AngelesCarole Sabas’ in-the-know guides to such cities as Miami, Paris, and New York are joined this week by The Fashion Friendly Guide to Los Angeles. The Paris Vogue contributor interviewed nearly forty fashion insiders to get their tips on everything from the perfect wood-fired pizza to painless facial extractions. Johnny Depp’s tattoo parlor of choice? Shamrock Social Club. The Rodarte sisters’ favorite cult movie houses? You’ll have to pick up the book.

Both Sabas and those she consulted for the guide (among them Angela Lindvall, Kate Bosworth, and Rachel Zoe) are quick to dispel misconceptions of a city often filtered through the lens of TMZ. “The most open city [I've written about] is definitely Los Angeles,” Sabas told Style.com. “I was amazed at how generous the people are! They like when people love the city and try to understand more than the celebrity culture.”

The tome’s cover features art from Sabas’ regular collaborator Caroline Andrieu. The illustrator created an ethereal portrait of quintessential L.A. It girl (and Mark “The Cobrasnake” Hunter’s girlfriend), model Diane Rosser. “I just love having her on the cover. To me she really represents this West Coast lifestyle,” Sabas says. “[Los Angeles] is very wild and very inspirational. It’s about freedom. You can be whatever you want.”

Below, Sabas consults her new release to map out a perfect L.A. day, exclusively for Style.com.

The Fashion Friendly Guide to Los Angeles is now available online and in-store at McNally Jackson, and later this week at Colette.

Wilfredo Rosado Fall 2013

-------


Label: Wilfredo Rosado

Need to Know: After years of working with Giorgio Armani, Wilfredo Rosado realized his dream was to launch his own fine jewelry collection. And in 2011, he did just that. Top international retailers like Bergdorf Goodman and Lane Crawford quickly snatched up his unique pieces. His cameos were an instant success, Gwyneth Paltrow wore his pink feather and diamond earrings to the 2011 Grammys, and ever since debuting his first collection, editors and buyers alike have championed his extravagant, eccentric take on diamonds.

When asked about his Fall ’13 collection, Rosado told Style.com that he has always been a fan of the Smoke series of burned furniture by the Dutch designer Maarten Baas. He’s fascinated by the idea of creating high-luxury pieces and treating them as common, non-precious objects. You can’t get much more precious than 18-karat gold set with sapphires, diamonds, and emeralds. But for Fall, Rosado inlaid his decadent wares with burned wood. He tells us they’re meant to be worn as everyday accessories.

He Says: “Should I call this collection ‘HOT’? I just want women—or men, for that matter—to look and feel cool wearing it, without feeling like they’re wearing the family jewels!”

Where to Find It: Bergdorf Goodman, Just One Eye, Neiman Marcus

Eye on the Prize

-------

There are only 12, and fittingly, they launched on 12/12/12. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s latest project, a dozen crocodile The Row backpacks decorated by Damien Hirst, had the Internet roaring even before they were released last night at Paola Russo’s new Hollywood concept shop Just One Eye. The preliminary buzz was, in part, caused by the big names involved. But really, the chatter revolved around the sacs’ alleged $55,000 price tags. “Damien [Hirst] uses the most iconic pieces and he used our iconic backpack,” said Mary-Kate Olsen, noting that she and Ashley gave Hirst full reign in the design process. “We just supplied a canvas for him and he did what he does best,” Ashley added.

The likes of Erin Wasson, Stavros Niarchos, and Co’s Stephanie Danan and Justin Kern turned out to the boutique to celebrate the launch. And the store proved to be a fitting backdrop for the occasion. “The Row was the first one to follow Just One Eye,” Russo said. Ashley Olsen offered, “I love the concept behind the store. The whole experience is very personal.” Though talk of the backpacks’ price was off the table, the suggested retail value didn’t deter potential patrons of the arts—an eager buyer gingerly toted her new pack around the party.
