Hip to be square

Friday, January 25, 2013
The imagination and creativity behind the Louis Vuitton brand is incredible. We know it can become a cliche because it is EVERYWHERE, but it really does hit the luxury mark, often with a sense of humor and certainly with a strong grasp on the art of the world around us. No one else feels as fresh while maintaining such an iconic status in the world of branding and design. The recent campaign features the graphic square print that we've loved since early YSL and is trending again in the world of fashion. Marc Jacobs enlisted artist Daniel Buren to create the check pattern we are loving right now (and inspired by Buren's 1986 installation at the Palais Royal, Les Deux Plateaux). We couldn't help but notice how we've also seen the squares showing up in editorials and shoots for tabletop. Even our Tabletop Tuesday feature this week had a mix of round and square plates (see it here). What do you think about this graphic direction of print and tabletop...Would you go bold and repetitious with your tabletop? Is it hip to be square again?

NOTE: Remember last season's polka dot theme at Louis Vuitton? We loved seeing it during NY Fashion Week and huge installations in Paris. Not only that, but it certainly inspired a lot of what we saw going out with our polka dot collections. Remember when we blogged about the  windows at LV in NYC featuring a collaboration with artist Yayoi Kusama?

What Wowed Us: Modern Day Grace

Thursday, January 24, 2013
This wedding popped up in our weekly blog reads, and we were immediately struck by it's sophisticated elegance. Not only that, but the beautiful bride reminded us of a modern day Grace Kelly - graceful and timeless. Bella Flora provided romantic floral arrangements in creamy palettes that took our breath away. What a lovely day for the bride and groom, and although it was an October wedding, we can see these creams and gold working well throughout the year.
