The coolest lady ever walked this earth, kind of: Jacqueline Lee “Jackie” Kennedy Onassis. “She retained French-born American fashion designer and Kennedy family friend Oleg Cassini in the fall of 1960 to create an original wardrobe for her as First Lady. In 1961, Kennedy spent $45,446 more on fashion than the $100,000 annual salary her husband earned as president. Although Cassini was her primary designer, she also wore ensembles by French fashion legends such as Chanel, Givenchy, and Dior.”
“After Jørn Utzon left the Sydney Opera project in 1966, he decided to settle on Majorca. The family first bought land up in the mountains, where Can Feliz is now located, but in the first instance, the local authorities would not permit him to build on the attractive mountainside. So instead Jørn Utzon bought land near Porto Petro, situated on a steep cliff facing the sea. Can Lis could then become a reality.”
The Line, which also is goes by the name The Apartment, has recently opened up their third store in the US – this time outside New York in the very classic vacation area of The Hamptons. However this is only a pop-up store in the heart of Amagansett, which unfortunately closes its doors at end of the summer. If you haven’t got the possibility to swing by any of the three locations (Soho NYC, Los Angeles or Hamptons), make sure to pay a visit to their online store where you must certainly will find something dreamy to purchase (or look at) as above items.
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen opened up The Row’s New York flagship store a couple of weeks ago with the very posh but discreet address; 17 E 71st St, New York – just down the block from the Frick Collection. It’s the second home of the luxurious brand and the very sleek and minimalistic three-story townhouse does not only show the sister’s latest collection and essentials, the brand’s eyewear collection with Oliver Peoples along with the new shoe collection. The very tasteful space also includes artwork by Jean Michel Basquiat, Borge Jorgensen and Keith Haring, which is for sale – including the furniture.

Stripes is merely an obsession of mine, and lately I have been eyeing thicker ones. Jacquemus is one who has included the bolder line in his SS15 collection, which is available for almost half the price now… Dangerous. Anyway, got me thinking of this editorial with Anja Rubik in Self Service Magazine where she is styled by Suzanne Koller and captured by Walter Pfeiffer. Perfect stripes and absolutely love the dress. I would probably look like a prison guard in this one, but Anja pulls it off perfectly.
