Let's Throw a Garden Party!

As the weather begins to warm, our thoughts turn to summer, to relaxation, to travel, to La Dolce Vita -- the good life.

No one captured that mood and style better than photographer Slim Aarons.

Le photographe Slim Aarons est connu pour ses photographies de la jet set et de la haute société dans les années 1950, 1960 et 1970.

When I first saw the vintage coral flower that became the centerpiece of this collection, my thoughts drifted to Beverly Hills, to a woman wearing a Dior ‘New Look’ dress with a tight bodice and full skirt, and the brooch pinned to a little cardigan draped over her shoulders…

OK, so now it’s everything but brooches—necklace, bracelet, earrings and even a barrette.  And now it’s a look that can go with white jeans, a pool cover up, OR a flirtatious party dress. Your choice! 

And in addition to coral’s classic pop of color, we created a soft, pale chalky blue version. Almost a neutral, but also with a little color, which is what we’re all craving after a long, grey winter.
