SARTORIAL SANITY: Alexander Wang Dans Ma Poche

Is that my hand or yours? Nevermind that. As a whole, despite my usual despondent affection for Mr. Alexander Wang, I did not care for his spring/summer 2012 collection. Forgive my distaste for neon blanketing black mesh. 


SARTORIAL SANITY: Miss Georgia May Is All Lips And Hips

Georgia May Jagger shows us all what exactly rock and roll royalty is in Vogue Italia's September issue shot by Ellen von Unwerth. 


Okay, we get it, you're a star. Kim Kardshian strikes a pose for Harper's Bazaar Arabia and Miley Cyrus is seeing similar stars for Prestige magazine.

One part mental asylum. Two parts Calvin Klein. Shake well.

I'm on the fence as to whether Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the duo behind The Row, hit it out of the ballpark with their spring/summer 2012 collection or merely came close to pulling it off. From pieces bound in silk cord and minimalist sheaths to fringed tuxedo pants and what looks like drawstring sleepwear, I'm not really sure what ties the collection together other than the apparent lack of color (which I applaud).

The epitome of Calvin Klein minimalism, no?

Trapped in a room with padded walls.

Love the silhouette of this structured/textured top.

TINSELTOWN TAWDRY: Drew Barrymore in Pucci for Neiman Marcus

Fine, I like her more now. 


Alber, you've outdone yourself! MTV has nothing on Lanvin's fall/winter 2011 campaign. If I had a nickel for every time I saw a felt-topped herdsman breaking it down to Pitbull's "I Know You Want Me," well, I'd still be poor.

APT ASSOULINE: Forget Recycling

Although the contents of these vessels are often more scrumptious than the idea of their carriers, there's something to be said for the glass houses they live in. Instead of handing over the cheapest interior design staple around to your recycling man, give them a rinse and check out these ideas to reduce, reuse and re-imagine.

COCKTAIL CHATTER: The Street Style Maverick

I absolutely love Bill Cunningham. He is the ultimate authority when it comes to capturing street style -- he lives and breathes it and it shows.

APT ASSOULINE: The Count of Mount (DIY)

Must find old tables -- and a saw -- immediately, if not sooner. Love this look and it seems like it would be a fairly simple weekend DIY project.
