I’m in love with the new Co collection for fall by designers Stephanie Danan and Justin Kern. The dreamy portraiture by photographer Amanda Demme is pure magic. The designers were so inspired by her work that they ended up designing some pieces based on the drama they knew she’d be able to create when they’d eventually collaborate on this lookbook.
The pieces look so sophisticated, but there are a lot of nice wardrobe staples. My favorites are the black honeycomb-stitch pullover sweater and the grey cashmere cable-knit a-line sweater (love it in black too) because they are simple and beautifully done — you could wear them multiple times a week for years. I also love the pleated ruffle-side top and the silk rose palazzo pants are aaahhhhmazing. I’d probably look like a rose festooned Pac-Man ghost in them, but they are glorious sight to behold. More HERE and HERE.
HAPPY FRIDAY! I hope you have a fun weekend ahead with some much deserved lounging. It’s cuckoo to think that it will be September in 9 days — how did that happen?? I’ve been so busy this week with non-blog related wildness — hopefully I can share it soon. If you could keep fingers and toes crossed for me and send good luck vibes — I’d be ever so grateful. Make sure to take a little sloth-ing time for yourself, friends. Time goes so fast — sometimes it’s hard to remember to take it easy! xo Jen
