Karl Lagerfeld for Macy's

Dubbed the "Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse" collection, the line includes flowing and tailored pieces, tweed and (faux?) leather, printed tank tops and tees.

“To me Macy’s is the perfect department store in the US where everybody can find what they’re looking for without ruining their budget,” Lagerfeld said in a release. The collection is priced between $50 to $170 and goes on sale at 235 Macy’s across the nation and on today.

This isn't Lagerfeld's first partnership with a fast fashion purveyor -- he was the first big name to link up with H&M.
Will this collection be as successful ?

Here some photos from the collection.

And some photos from Macy's this morning
I am happy to report that a lot of women were there with huge selections.
My favorites :
A tweed short for 89 $
A printed shirt for 79 $
A a signature white shirt for 99 $
A black jersey dress for 99 $ 
And a tweed coatdress for 169 $

Me,Anna Cleveland and Stephen Burrows

It has been a crazy week in NY, first an earthquake and now we are waiting for hurricane Irene!

In the middle of all this I did made time to shoot Stephen Burrows Spring/Summer 2012 look book with his new muse Anna Cleveland, daughter of famous 80’s model Pat Cleveland .
Pat and Stephen go way back and it just seems completely natural that Anna slipped right into her mother shoes.

Stephen is known for his innovative designs using fluid jersey fabrics in vibrant color combinations. Red being his signature color.
In 1973 he was part of the now famous Versailles Show, an international sensation that brought acclaim to American fashion for the first time.

Last summer Stephen designed a special capsule collection for Target.

2011 marks Stephen Burrows 45th year as a designer.

I am very lucky to have Stephen as a friend and over the years I have enjoyed the opportunity of shooting some of his work. Here just a little glimpse...

While on vacation in Palm Springs I discovered this Gallery.

IMAGEVILLE is the gallery of photographer Gary Dorothy and is
located in La Plaza in historic downtown Palm Springs

I really did fall in love with his pictures. Anybody who knows me, knows that I never go out of the house without my camera.

In Gary I found someone with a similar eye, a love of color and a great
sense of humor.

Gary a ten year resident of Palm Springs showcases his photographs of the desert but also of San Francisco, New York and Chicago. 

You will also find a great selection of plant and flower "portraits".

The best part is that he can ship his photographs.

"Flaming Cactus" and Neon jewelry.

As I was walking home from my favorite Japanese restaurant in the village i did notice this strange thing happening on Astor Place.It turn out that it's an art project called "Flaming Cactus" by Animus.

Looking at this he did remind me of a collection that I really liked for Fall/Winter 2011:
The Libertine collection.

( Fashion Photos )

And how is this relevant to you ? Well for Fall a little neon color will spruce your wardrobe,maybe an accessory as a bracelet or a necklace.Check out the beautiful necklace I did find for you.
