Here in New York City, it has been cold, very cold, with… some relief this week! And that cold of winter inspired us to find the joy and beauty in this season! So we compiled a list of some wonderful items to help enhance winter days for all you Moms. We hope you enjoy these items as much as we do! Stay warm and stay wonderful!
As usual, La Petite Mag delivers an incredible issue. I am always in awe of the talents of photographer Karolina Henke and her outstanding and beautiful work which reminds me of Magical Realism. Here is part of her Gypsies spread of this issue. And the big news is the Petite Mag is now in print as well as online. I feel these will be collector’s items one day.
Karl Lagerfeld, forever the showman is never someone to do things faintly, and so his Chanel Pre-Fall, Métiers d’Arts Show in Dallas was no exception. The festivities played on the style and history of Texas, or Lagerfeld’s perception of them. And he managed to sneak in two adorable outfits for boys (maybe because the cute kid is his godson, Hudson Kroenig). Really loving that patterned shirt below.
This over-the-top, three-part extravaganza was staged for an audience of 900 that featured celebrities such as Kristen Stewart, the face for this Chanel collection, Zoë Kravitz, Dakota Fanning, Lily Collins and Alexa Chung. Everywhere there was fringing, feathers, beadwork and remarkable fabric treatments, all with the look of the Southwest and the craft of Chanel’s specialty ateliers. Definitely the most unusual and stylish western style garments I’ve ever seen!
In case you haven’t seen this yet, I’m of course loving what Alber Elbaz has dreamed up for this season. Fairy tale princesses and heroines: the Lanvin Petite collection for winter 2013 combines savoir faire with candy pink dreams. And I am enjoying the simplicity that this label has taken on since their start a few seasons ago.
They’ve very artfully borrowed fabrics from the women’s range and couture finishes combine with sequins and brightly colored calicos to create a wardrobe for elegant and very pampered little girls. To view the entire collection visit: www.lanvin.tumblr.com
And check out the sweet behind-the-scenes video below, and see what Elbaz’s candy pink dreams are made of!
Look at these gorgeous photos of the Jumina mid season winter parade. They decided not to use a traditional runway but a backyard in a typical Norwegian town building. It was an amazing way of doing it and it gave the right Circus feeling they wanted to create. I just am so enchanted by this label which bases a lot of their designs on Norwegian Fairytales, and they are completely committed to Eco-friendly fabrics and construction. I just adore those pom-poms! For more loveliness go to their website!
Here are the girls in their festive outfits from Everbloom. As soon as they put these clothes on, they burst into play, as you can see from the photos! An instant and amazing effect. They are both wearing Red Dot Skirts, Oona is wearing the Red Rose Tee, and Solène is wearing her already beloved Kitty Tee. And even their super cute hair accessories are Everbloom. Check out their website for the whole range.

I was lucky enough to attend the Artissano launch event a couple of weeks ago here in NYC and loved what this online shop does! They actively seek out original and worthy designers and make them available in their beautiful shop. They have a great selection of jewelry, handbags, accessories and even menswear.
Well the holidays are here and the girls are all ready with their exquisite dresses from one of our fave labels, Marie-Chantal! Oona is wearing this stunning gathered wool and viscose dress, and Solène is wearing this super cute pin tuck dress. Check out their website for more loveliness and great boy’s styles as well!
Sweater (Girls): We love this classic cable-knit sweater. The robin’s egg blue makes for a fantastical winter-wonderland! Paired with jeans, it’s a perfect look for these chilly days. This GAP sweater can be purchased here.
