Last spring Colin and I were lucky enough to spend a week in Paris with Esteban Cortazar and see the collection he designed for Ungaro..we all know what happened in the following months with that particular storied design house but I don’t think anyone doubted he would continue making a name for himself. We’ve kept in touch via email and he sent me the link to the site for his collaboration with Exito. He claims that Exito is the Latin American equivalent of Target but I’m failing to see how this could possibly be the case with how perfectly draped and fitted and um expensive the pieces look (hm though I did buy an alright tshirt at old Target yesterday). Sweet summer to fall inspiration too..styling and video that you must watch by Jaime Rubiano.

I spent some time going through magazines today, dividing into keep/scan/toss…didn’t see this editorial when I flipped through the issue the first time around. ’70s inspired in all the right ways..I’m now obsessed with that Calvin Klein metallic dress. So much so that I immediately went to eBay and bought the best approximation I could find. Fingers crossed.
Net-a-porter’s styling of the 3.1 Phillip Lim collection perfectly highlights the extreme wearability of the pieces. Especially distracted by the double denim, mustard parka, heather grays, and that beautiful blush silk dress I fell in love with in February.
