Artisan de Luxe’s Latest Collection Celebrates Hand-Craft & Boho

A stroll around Coterie revealed the denim trends of both fall and spring, and in the case of Artisan de Luxe designer Philippe Naouri, it’s all about the hand-crafted details and bohemian edge. Living up to its name, the artistic quality of each piece is underlined by thoughtfully appropriated trims of beads, fringe, cut-outs and fabric distressing that makes the collection look like there’s a history behind it—as if each piece could be a character in a film. Jackets were the perfect unison of utility (denim patches) and tribal influence (saturated South American textiles). Jeans had ’70s flare legs and designs (like peace signs and overlapping abstract scissor silhouettes) affixed with stitching in sand-color thread. Overall, a collection a New York girl can slip into to put a little more West Coast nomad-chic into her life.

Le Blog De Betty: Skinny Jeans & Ethnic Prints

Ethnic prints are all the rage, and blogger-darling Le Blog De Betty is more than happy to jump on the bandwagon with a recent street style snap. Vivid and loud, yet muted in color, the outfit includes a Navajo-patterned t-shirt from WkShp Clothing, bronze coated skinny jeans from Lee Anglomania, and the very-cool black & white contrast sandals from the H&M Against Aids collection. This is something we might wear towards the end of the summer (right now it’s over-90 in NYC, most of us cannot even imagine wearing jeans… poor Renee & Gordon!). None the less, this styling is red-hot.

Denim Styling Tip: Pink Denim & Metallic Accessories

The stylishly notorious Rumi of Fashion Toast rocks a trend we’re ready to dive right into-–pink denim cut-off shorts and silver accessories. The pink and silver combo is a dose of straight up pretty that works on anyone. Rumi’s shorts are Isabel Marant. If you’re worried that the icing-pink is a bit too frou-frou, throw on a loose, filmy semi-sheer top and leave your hair to fly free like a bohemian queen.

Denim Looks From Mike Gonzalez Spring 2011

We couldn’t be more thrilled to present three incredible denim-infused looks from the Mike Gonzalez spring 2011 collection (which is, in short, a bohemian dream). The line is characteristic in its well-played head wraps, organic bangles, cut-outs, and ethnic prints, but the star of this show is all-blue, baby! We’re beyond obsessed with this round up of braid-rope belted denim jumper, versatile cropped drawstring pants, and stylized denim jacket. This is one example of boho-denim that needn’t even graze the surface of western. If you thought the West was wild, scroll down and think again.




Mike Gonzalez is available at Pink Mascara, Revolve Clothing, Shopbop, Tobi and more… for a complete list of retailers, visit the the official site.

Window Shopper New York City: Lucky Brand 67th St

In this edition of Window Shopper, we stroll by the Lucky Brand boutique on the corner of 67th Street and 3rd Avenue. While we could have guessed at the styling before we even got close enough to peer through the glass (ethnic ’70s rustic boho-galore), we loved the addition of  the oversize vintage luggage and tin lantern that gave an air of summer jet-set so the scene.

Street Style: Pink Denim

Pink denim! If you’ve been with us for more than a few page scrolls, you know we’re into it. A clean white knit top, fur coat, and pop-color bag gives this gal’s outfit a lot of creative street style cred. We also adore the feather-trimmed heels, but you can easily tone this ensemble down by switching out the bag and shoes for something more subtle, like camel-colored leather boots and a chic biker tote.

TORN: An Exclusive Interview with Ronny Kobo

Launched in 2008, Torn by Ronny Kobo has risen into the spotlight with wearable, yet inventive T-shirt designs for the “Metropolitan Girl”.  These T’s caught our attention because of how flawlessly they match up with our favorite jeans—wide leg or skinny. Kobo launched her collection of designer T-shirts and is slowly expanding into ready-to-wear. “I’m fluent in T-shirts,” says Kobo. But this clothing-language has no strict code. The collection is meant to be mixed and matched, evoking the customers individuality. “The interpretation is completely in how you wear it.”


We had the opportunity to speak with the designer to discuss exactly how to pair the two all time favorites from your wardrobe together—the T’s and the jeans. Read on!

DT: Lets start from the beginning. How did you know you wanted to be a designer?

RK: Designing is a part of me, not to sound too cliche. But in many ways I had been designing since I was a little girl. It wasn’t until I reached graduate school and had a small business of handbags that I realized I could make this dream into reality. A year later I launched Torn.

DT: Do you have any pre-designing rituals?

RK: Yes, exposure! Sitting at home or in the office before designing a season is impossible. I need to walk around on the streets, travel in order to get inspiration. My greates source of inspiration which never fails me are markets of all kinds.

DT: Describe the woman who represents your ideal target customer—the customer you have in mind when you’re planning a collection.

RK: The woman that wears my clothes is fun and really wants to make an effort to look sexy and playful. She is a confident woman, who is well travelled and sophisticated yet has a fabulous sense of humor and doesn’t take herself too seriously. My clothes reflect that.

DT: Can you give us hint about what’s next?

RK: We have just finished designing fall, and are moving into Holiday. For holiday my inspiration is what I call “a 1970’s bohemian Christmas party”.. This came to life while I was looking at some vintage posters and there was an old album cover that depicted this feeling. I am very excited to be incorporating the 1970’s in my collection..

DT: Do you have any favorite/least favorite denim trends right now?

RK: I really like the bell bottoms that every line is showing. I am over the boyfriend jean (although can admit they are the most comfortable to wear).. I really am very excited to wear my cotton candy colored pink jeans this spring.

DT: Any favorite denim brands? Or denim stores?

RK: I love PRPS, vintage levi’s, acne, and am always a big fan of ksubi.

DT: How do you style your denim and tees? And where are you going in them?

RK: I have a couple of different category tops to style with denim. Work sophisticated look for the office to be paired with more denim trouser type pants, weekend casual look and tees, and my very favorite Saturday night T-shirts that are sexy and fun and can be dressed up or down.

A huge thanks to Ronny Kobo for taking the time to help us bring you this interview. Find out more about this exciting line by visiting the Torn by Ronny Kobo website and shop their selection at Shopbop and Intermix.
