Summer Corals

Until I find that perfect shack on the beach and sun on my back is assured, I will deal with the less than convincing “Spring is in the air” weather in Paris.


When finalizing my spring-summer collection for Crimson, I knew knits and brightly colored cashmere shawls were a must. Six months later with the arrival of those articles, I couldn’t be happier. I need fresh and bright for my wardrobe going towards those summer days.

Corals are a great mood lifter and cannot help but remind me of my favorite elements in life……..sea and sand. This boat neck sweater is actually 3 ply cashmere but so loosely knitted that it feels like a cloud of softness on the shoulders. Teamed with Crimson’s silk and cashmere shawl, my coat can remain in the closet.

APC is now issuing a vintage denim line. I love the theory!!! Bring in your old jeans and get a great discount on a new pair. They recondition the old by cleaning and stitching and then put them back on the shelves. I enjoy giving these jeans another lease on life.

Saint Laurent’s metallic leopard print ballet shoe adds a fun mix of a print for me. I tend to do “solids”, so this brings an element of texture for my look today. Details are fun, no?

Hope your spring is coming along just fine………
