ok, i really thought i was doing the responsible thing by booking our NY tickets AFTER the fashion shows and during the tradeshows... to be sure i'd have a liquor-free brain during appointments. but the images i keep seeing of the shows that we passed on proves that i'm not so smart after all. my favorite so far was garance dore's story about pamela love's presentation.
speaking of pamela, what about those pieces she worked on with SPIKE JONZE, influenced by WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE to be sold at opening ceremony??

don't even get me started on these limited claw cuffs (only 5!) she's making with derrick of black sheep & prodigal sons . PAMELA IS KILLING IT!

betsey johnson for opening ceremony

Betsey Johnson has finally released the archive collection: her very best pieces in history, as curated by Opening Ceremony. We asked Pia Arrobio to do a photo story of these pieces, which turned out to be a perfect match - as Betsey Johnson was Pia's very first favorite designer as a teenager. Pia styled, modeled and shot the photos herself in her bedroom and around her ny neighborhood.

more about pia here.

esther k.

i've been wanting to carry huge edie earrings for a long time now, but could never find the perfect pair. i decided to ask susan, the designer behind jewelry line Esther K., to make some exclusively for us. i can't tell you how excited i am with what she came up with! she took away the gaudy 60's vibe and added intricate gothic details. they are perfect and so exactly what i had in mind.

this is where the magic happens, at susan's studio in philadelphia. (recently featured on design sponge)
pizza is also a huge fan of the edie earrings.
