Iconic meets ironic. Loved Tim Walker’s editorials for years. Here is Lily Cole in 2004. Wearing Chanel I think. #fashion #model #lilycole #timwalker #chanel #pearls #editorial #fashionphotography #couture #surreal #beautiful

Geoffrey Beene. I grew up hearing that name a lot. It was the early 80s and my aunt, whom I practically lived with, was going to fashion school. His name was all over the magazines that came to her in the mail and she kept referencing him. I sort of knew him as a respected American designer, but it wasn’t until much later that I really figured out what his legacy in this country was.

Here is a classic 60s tweed suit from the master himself. I may never get to offer another vintage Beene in my little store, so am currently basking in the glow.

This post is my kick-off to a slew of Beene or Beene-inspired musings and images coming to this blog!

So many of today’s designs are vintage inspired. I love it! Did you notice the matching shoes?   I’m pretty sure this is Valentino spring 2012, which I blogged about earlier.I’m obsessed with the entire collection.

Vintage designer duds from my store. This selection is an offshoot of my latest kick in Parisian fashion panache as I asked myself, surely I have something either fabulously French or something that looks like it should be.
