MARKET REVIEW | AUDI S5 COUPE

For the sake of sparing you my long-winded drooling, I’ll say only this: so fresh, so clean.   And while I have generally been restricted in my life to sedans or SUVs, dictated simply by the myriad necessities of my day-to-day duties (Hi, can you imagine twenty garment bags stuffed into a backseat?), I’m inclined to …

MARKET REVIEW | DANNIJO ‘DEXTRA’ CUFF

Dannijo is a sister design duo whose work, while taking from a range of cues, always possesses a slightly off-kilter edge. This cuff, the ‘Dextra’, is made of oxidized and brushed silver, gold, gunmetal and thick slabs of gemstones.  Its soft curves and the round etching of the antiqued silver are delicate touches for a cuff that otherwise screams: ‘don’t …

MARKET REVIEW | PAMELA LOVE THREE FINGER TRIBAL RING

Bold rock-‘n-roll statement accessory and a weapon against creepers jealous of your unimpeachable taste? YES, please. While Pamela Love may not be a secret among the style cognoscenti, what is most notable about her work is the clever way in which she manages to evolve the collection’s distinctive point of view.  Rough hewn and perfectly imperfect, she designs jewelry the …

MARKET REVIEW | BURBERRY PRORSUM TRENCH

Season after season, Christopher Bailey translates Burberry’s storied heritage into clever, and sometimes irreverent, takes on the house’s signature: outerwear.  Here, in his thousandth iteration of a trench, Bailey would have us believe that, to think!, little of what we own can stand up next to the cool of this: the newest, the freshest, the yes-it-is-actually-cooler-than-what-I-own-damn-it-damn-it-damn-it. But to …

MARKET REVIEW | ERDEM’S ‘MARGOT’ LACE DRESS

A clear 50s nod in a distinctly modern treatment: delicate lace in a saturated scarlet, with just enough feminine detail to declare ‘I’m here’ without saying ‘look at me.’ A fitted bodice, sheer sleeves, an elegantly gathered, nipped waist, and a scalloped, knee-grazing hem. Pearls would be too obvious; instead, pair it back to sky-high …
