Post image for Trend: Lace

Lace is a trend we still can’t get over. It had a strong presence last summer and this year it’s back after Valentino, Elie Saab and Miu Miu all brought innovation into the mix with over sized reworks, eyelet patterns, and the cool awkward cute look.

Valentino Spring/Summer collection 2012

If you’re like me, love lace and bought into this trend last year, but don’t like to wear head to toe pretty, here are a few tips on how to refresh your lacey numbers. Layer your lace with a bright color pop of Neon! A bright neon vest or swimsuit under a lacey dress to give it a little more energy and then finish it off with one statement bracelet

Items: Ethnic Lace Dress, Ruffle Monokini One Piece Swimsuit, Swedish Hasbeens, Brea Glided Bangle

Mix your pretty pieces with some edge; vintage tee’s over lace skirts and shorts for that tomboy look

Items: Daisy Embroidered Mesh Short, Vintage Loves Vintage Tees, Luke Ankle Boot

Post image for Milan Fashion Week Diary by Silvia Bergomi

Milan Fashion Week is underway and we have the lovely Silvia Bergomi documenting the action for us! Check out her recap and photo diary below.

Silvia Bergomi by Tommy Ton for style.com

One of the best things about February Fashion Week in Milan is that often it coincides with the coming of Spring… You start to see colorful and floral looks, and it seems that everybody allows themselves to be more relaxed.

As a good start, on Wednesday I went to Numèro 21 show, which is actually one of my favourite brands.

Vionnet cocktail dress

Vionnet bag

Right after, I was invited to the opening of the first Vionnet shop in corso Monforte.

Palazzo Visconti hosted Elisabetta Franchi Dinner Party

Carilna @ Palazzo Visconti

Party @ Palazzo Visconti

Around 8.30 pm I had dinner at Palazzo Visconti, followed by a party hosted by Elisabetta Franchi. The music coming from Dj Seth Troxler and Marcelo Burlon was totally fascinating. We closed the dancefloor with a special song in memory of Whitney.

As usual, we ended the night with a goodnight drink at the bar Hotel Principe di Savoia.

Karl Lagerfield & Silvia Venturini Fendi after Fendi show

Thursday started with Fendi, which brought amazing shapes to the catwalk based on furs and knee-length skirts.

Fausto Puglisi details

Fausto Puglisi dress

After Fendi, I went to have a quick look at the new Fausto Puglisi AW collection. Leather, studs, embroidery, rhinestones, but also optical patterns and fluorescent colors: all this together was really photogenic.

Silk and Tiger for the DM (Dead Meat woman) collection

After a quick lunch at Grazia Pop Up, I had chat-tea with my friends from Dead Meat. They were presenting their new collection, which is based on the figures of princesses like Maria Callas and Romy Schneider. Graphics are as always full of imaginative and literary references.

Moodboard @ Yo No Fui backstage

Arizona Muse, Yo No Fui backstage

At 5 pm was the start of Jo No Fui, with the amazing Arizona Muse and a special attention to color combination.

unFLOP Paper launch cocktail @Marcelleria

At 8 pm I ended the day at the launch cocktail party of unFLOP paper 3; they also presented a Short Film by Silvia Morani and an exclusive art cover plus vinyl by artist Simon Fujiwara.

More to come!

Post image for Our Zen Garden

We have a new addition to our lobby… a beautiful zen garden! The peaceful garden is home to plants, succulents, crystals, gold painted rocks, various wildlife creatures and of course some pink sand for good measure. A jar in the corner holds little rakes so that we can all quite literally leave our mark in the sand.

I wish I could shrink myself and live in this tranquil little world!

Post image for Office Style: Candy

For this week’s office style we caught hints of FP girl, Candy, around the office. She appears sweet as nectar – a woman as intricate as lace. Candy twirls in frilly dresses, and buttons up with lace. She’s a true lady who embraces her femininity. Don’t let all of the sweetness fool you, Candy is just as modern as the rest. Mixing in hints of neon, throwing on denim vests, and piling on rings are just some of the ways she’s keeping the fashion current.

Love how in the style in house reflects the easy going attitude FP is all about! Lace, pink hues, and florals are so Candy.

I've a question regarding those large bins covered with sahri fabric. I absolutely love them, and would like to purchase some for some Ikea Lack shelving I have in my babies room. How, where can I find them for purchase or diy? Help me please :) All the bins I find are way too small for my shelving :( Any info would be appreciated. Thank you and they're a great idea.

Post image for Beekman Street Palace

At 5 Beekman Street in Manhattan, there is a large but unassuming building that is completely empty and abandoned, with much of the interior shuttered since 1940. Few are allowed inside, depriving the general public of the ability to witness its surprisingly stunning interior – and it won’t be this way for long, as it was recently purchased by hotelier André Balasz. The derelict interior provided an intriguing backdrop for our shoot, contrasting perfectly with the soft, girly pastels of our lookbook. Read more »
