Last week fashion brand Coach celebrated its recent collaboration with local Dallas artist Arthur Peña, W magazine, and fifty art and fashion aficionados for dinner at The Joule Hotel in downtown Dallas.
In a sun-filled warehouse, in the Cannaregio neighbourhood of Venice resides the latest exhibition by Ukrainian photographer Boris Mikhailov titled Parliament. During the pre-opening week of the 57th Venice Biennale, I took a trip to Italy to immerse myself with art, to meet Mikhailov and attend the opening reception for the Ukrainian Pavilion.
A smiley face just makes you happy, and the colour yellow regardless of an emoticon self-perpetuates the idea of sunnier times ahead—and the added words ‘Have a Nice Day’, just makes life seem perfect. So for that perfect casual spring day, a t-shirt with a smiley face emblazoned across your chest is a positive way to start. If you’re feeling sunny, then these spring styles will put a smile on your face.
Style: An invitation to dine with Mona Lisa at the Louvre is a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be declined. Last night in Paris, Louis Vuitton invited guests to an intimate dinner in celebration of its latest collaboration with American artist Jeff Koons, titled ‘Masters’. Noting the first time the Louvre has hosted guests within the Denon wing room, Salle des Etats, aka the Mona Lisa room, to dine amidst the Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece.
As I scroll through multiple photos of smiling and laughing faces, it’s evident that the common theme shared by everyone at MTV Re:Define on Friday, March 24 was simple—fun! And I’ll admit I’m completely biased as the event chair, so you don’t need to believe my opinion on how much fun everyone had that night, just ask someone else. Hands-down, this is my favourite gala on the social calendar of Dallas, and this particular night rocked—as it should do when it’s a collaboration with MTV!
Chat: In the East end of London, near Old Street, resides the studio of fashion designers Matthew Harding and Levi Palmer of Palmer//Harding, aka The Shirt Boys. A merging of creative minds from Dallas and London, this innovative duo—alumni from Central Saint Martins, have finely-tuned their skills in the form of wearable, everyday styles in shirts.
Levi returned home to Texas this past December to visit his family for the holidays, along with Matthew, his British business and life partner. With a pit stop in Dallas to visit the newly opened Forty Five Ten where their line is carried, I joined them for lunch at the store’s restaurant Mirador for a chat.
