The real new thing

"Welcome to Concrete Beach" says the lookbook for my friend Jonathan Cohen's 2012 resort collection, his best yet.  His breezy and refined downtown-luxe looks ("concrete wall splatter print" on silk satin) are what he imagines his chic girlfriends wearing as they frolic the LES rooftops and high-end hotel terraces of a New York City summer.  I'd like to imagine the same.

Keep your eye out for Jonathan Cohen Collection - it's the real "new thing."  Bravo, J!

Heat wave

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, who just launched their ultraluxe new handbag line with a soiree tonight at Barneys New York, somehow manage to keep their chic cool in the heat of a New York City summer.  With a mix of their signature can't-be-bothered ease and some very fashion items--like Ashley's coveted Prada sunnies and huge croc bag or MK's color-blocked Celine shirt--they look right on point as per usual.

Master craft

Azzedine Alaia had a rare, exclusive showing of his latest collection during the Paris couture shows last week, and as you can see, he killed it.
