Eileen Gray’s home

Eileen grays home

Gorgeous pictures from Eileen Gray’s home called E1027 in south of France on Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, which took three years to build. The building is informed by Le Corbusier’s notion of the “house as a machine for living in” and was also was one of Corbusier’s favourite homes. He tried to purchase it several times without any luck. Gray’s vision of the home was that the “architecture must be its own decoration”. Eileen Gray was an Anglo-Irish artist, designer and architect and she died at the age of 98 in 1976 in Paris. Today her pieces are highly valued, for instance in 2009, a brown leather armchair standing just 24 inches tall sold at Christie’s for £19.4 million, setting an auction record for 20th-century furniture.

Dior heels

Dior spring 2016 shoesAbove and below are the truly dreamy heels from the Christian Dior spring and summer 2016 collection. Patent, pointy, cone heels, and with a bucket detail at the front and on the strap makes these shoes the absolute it-shoe of the season. Also available in flats, similar to the ones Céline showed in their resort collection. This was Raf Simon’s last collection for the Parisian house so they will definitely become collective items. His words about the collection were these among many: “It’s a calm one, and very soft—away from the overdone. I didn’t want to embellish. So I was thinking about the South of France—rainbows and the simple things. And there’s a bit of Victoriana: something of that film Picnic at Hanging Rock. With a slight sexual undertone of darkness.” Dior spring 2016 shoes white

Not so sure my feelings for her though, no offense AnOther (you are my fav). But I do love, love, love Jamie Bechert in Alessandro Michele for Gucci styled by Katie Shillingford below from the same issue.

Miu Miu Fall 2015 campaign

Miu Miu’s ad “Subjective Reality“, its their new campaign for the fall 2015 season inspired by street style icons and photography. As always, this campaign is also captured by Steven Meisel, this time on the sidewalks of New York. Four fast-rising actresses stars in the ad; Mia Goth, Maddison Brown, Hailey Gates and Stacy Martin. Earlier this year, the Prada-owned brand questioned the ordinary with a new installment of its commissioned Women’s Tales series. It’s worth noting that Miu Miu isn’t the only major—or only Italian—house to take its campaign to the streets this season. Gucci also shot its ads on the boulevards of Los Angeles. The marked difference, however, is that Miu Miu crafted staged scenes with full styling while Gucci left its magpies to mingle with the L.A. regulars.
