French Artist Alexandre Benjamin Navet’s Favorite Color is Yellow

There’s something alluring about seeing French artist Alexandre Benjamin Navet’s playful renderings of daffodils and pansies set against the art deco facades of Fifth Avenue’s historic buildings. The contrast calls to attention the precision of every brushstroke and the curvature of each petal. The vibrant color palettes of the work offset the dreary hues of the sidewalks—yellow versus grey, pink against black. For the second time, Van Cleef & Arpels has tapped Navet to accessorize the tony midtown corridor with multiple installations. In partnership with the Fifth Avenue Association, th ..read more

Ashleah Gonzales Is Writing It Down

At once poignant and heartwrenching, Ashleah Gonzales’s debut poetry collection Fake Piñata “cuts open and examines the pieces of a life as they fall,” and Gonzales’s curiosities circle a pressing question: What is a home? “I’ve been asking myself and other people unknowingly since I was little, and I think that was something that wanted to come out,” she explains via email. “I wouldn’t say that writing this collection has changed the way I feel about home or time at all. I think I’m still questioning, but I have more of an understanding that I am my own home regardless, my own little mobile ..read more

Can the Stars of Cannes Modernize the Skirt Suit?

While promoting Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga this past Thursday at the 77th Annual Cannes Film Festival, actress Anya Taylor-Joy sported a midriff-baring skirt suit—two contradictory concepts Jil Sander’s Luke and Lucie Meier fused in a manner few could achieve. The ensemble from the Fall ‘24 collection featured an ultra-cropped jacket and mid-length coordinating skirt in a textured creamy silk bouclé knit with shredded trim. On the runway, the designers layered in a shirt, which Taylor-Joy and stylist Law Roach chose to forgo (though they kept the bedazzled headpiece). Diane Kruger took a dif ..read more

As One/Of’s Patricia Voto was expanding her Upper East Side studio into an additional floor, she rediscovered an old framed black-and-white photograph of a matador. Clad in a traditional bolero and capri-pant set, he now presides over her space from his perch atop the mantle. “I was looking at all the beautiful beadwork like, ‘I wonder if next season has this hint of matador?’” muses the designer. “And that was the jumping-off point.” Her eighth collection then combined the influence of the matador’s bolero set with eighteenth-century Spanish ballgowns and Christian Dior’s ’50s full skirts a ..read more

What Would 'Bridgerton'’s Penelope Featherington Wear to the Chateau Marmont?

What if Penelope Featherington traded Regency-era London for the TikTok age and “the Ton” for the Chateau Marmont? Fawning over the floor-length, babydoll dresses Bridgerton costuming has become known for, I couldn’t help but wonder what the hyper-feminine, often ruffle-adorned character would wear if she were transported to Sunset Boulevard in 2024. Below, we’ve created a dreamy modern-day Bridgerton wardrobe that would incite Lady Whistledown to introduce a style section to her newspaper. Dresses Penelope’s rebellious side suggests she would be thrilled to introduce some edge into her war ..read more

Storytelling is about more than just words—scent can be used as a narrative tool to punctuate our everyday experiences. Adele Casagrande and Edoardo Fendi knew this to be true when they opened their workshop in Rome. The scent of fur and leather, the city’s olfactory profile—these notes are at the heart of the essence of Fendi. And now, Fendi is expanding into fragrance and launching seven unique scents inspired by the key players who made the house what it is today. There’s the fittingly named Casa Grande, created by perfumer Quentin Bisch and inspired by matriarch Adele Casagrande Fendi, w ..read more

Romanticize Your Life Like An Italian Grandma

I was fortunate to grow up in the Bronx alongside my Italian grandmother, Millie—formerly known as Emilia—a petite, spirited woman steeped in old-world tradition and a romantic view of the world. She had a jubilant aura shaped by teenage summers spent in Italy eating pasta, riding her bike, and lounging on the beaches of Torre Annunziata. Millie would express delight at shaped butter on scalloped plates in restaurants and compliment the chef even at a local diner for sunny-side-up eggs. She'd pluck dandelions from cracks in the pavement and place them around the house alongside ornate pictur ..read more

In the third season of Bridgerton, Netflix’s enormously popular historical romance drama, Penelope Featherington finally gets the glow-up she deserves. A lifelong wallflower who’s long been secretly in love with Colin Bridgerton—whom she overheard telling a group of guys he would never court her at the end of season two—Penelope has always been privy to the secret goings-on of society. The only reason she’s able to keep up her secret work as Lady Whistledown, the publisher of an entertaining gossip newspaper, is by writing from her perspective and position as an outsider. But by the show’s t ..read more

With a resistance to conforming to the performative nature of a "traditional" wedding ceremony, Caroline Hoover and Taylor Cox threw an intimate yet inclusive dinner party to celebrate their matrimony. Making commitments of "til death do us part" felt a little too personal for the traditional banquet room filled with third cousins and any relatives once or twice removed. Instead, they opted for 12 witnesses at the ceremony and 52 guests at the reception. Tapping close friends for all wedding needs from nails to planning, Lindsey Byrnes shot the event through the lens of vulnerability. She em ..read more

When planning a wedding, it’s easy to let the minute details of the singular day take over your life. Most of the brides I know openly regret the amount of pressure they put on themselves to produce an aesthetically perfect event. While it’s likely none of my guests will remember the frosted acrylic signature drink signs that I painstakingly designed in Canva, the bridal fashion choices that I made live forever. The looks that you curate for your wedding day and its surrounding events will likely be immortalized in photo albums, framed on shelves, and your future children’s Mother’s Day Inst ..read more
