One of my favorite moments of the 2019 Golden Globes was the presentation by Dick Van Dyke and Emily Blunt. The two iconic actors from different generations share the showmanship of their roles in Mary Poppins. The awards appearance celebrated the film and it’s message -everything is possible even the impossible.

As a stylist with Saks and a devoted supporter myself, I have taken notice of the artistic resemblance found from different designers throughout the industry. Labels such as Del Toro, The Alchemist, and Proenza Schouler have been inspired by the band’s originality and spirit to create assortments that will attract the loyal fan base to present-day fashion.
I truly respect the brilliance of these business-minded beatniks once called The Warlocks. This is a welcomed resurgence that promotes longevity, wellness, and prosperity known today as Deadhead chic!

Over the past two weeks, I have experienced two simultaneous Rick Owen’s moments.The first took place at Saks with an outstanding presentation of his 2018 fall collection.The second was the Architectural Digest article showcasing his starkly sophisticated home in Venice.
Rick is an avant-garde designer who through his consistent rituals has transformed a devoted following into a refined religion. All his creations are focused on ceremonial essentials that share the same thought-provoking coolness.
The new group at Saks offers his usual exacting elegance recognized by the use of pretentious fabrics, skins, and yarns.The apparel also portrays his fondness for the earth tones and unique engineered silhouettes infused by his ingenuity.
In the same fashion, the sparse Venice apartment leaves room for thought to inspire artistic genius. The white canvas shows off the contrived decor found throughout the austere sanctuary. A wall of books gives the lacking layout an attractive intelligence and welcoming warmth. Again, giving a meaningful purpose in everything he does.
Rick’s tried and true congregation relishes the classic innovative fashion he represents. Formal, fitted, or funky the assortments always please the devoted personalities that preach his extraordinary style and good taste.
