Jesse Untracht-Oakner: Photographer

This summer we have been keeping ourselves busy styling photoshoots with our new fantastic photographer friend, Jesse Untracht-Oakner, who is a great budding new talent. Not only does he come up with great stories, and the most perfect lighting schemes, but he is such a sweet, pleasure to work with. On set, many photographers tend to work with mean, uptight attitudes, while Jesse makes the atmosphere feel like a casual, friendly breeze. And just look at how dope this untouched, unedited photo looks.

Accessory of the week: 80's MAUD FRIZON Belt

Here is a prime example of how great quality vintage accessories can set you apart from the rest and give you the coolest looks ever. From luxe 80's leather house MAUD FRIZON comes this fun bold wide elastic leather belt that has a hidden brass closure and quirky leather zig-zag appliques in primary colors like blue, red, yellow and green. Everyone needs a wide leather belt to define the waist, play up proportions and give a simple look a sharp wit, and this one has so much personality on top of being a wardrobe essential.

Vintage Erte Poiret Print Cocoon Cardi & Tube Dress

Produced under license during the 80's art-deco craze comes this numbered limited edition homage to the great 20's icon ERTE that is a faboulous knit tube dress & matching cocoon jacket. The set is composed of a finely knit cream silk blend that is covered with large metallic black ERTE flowers. The tube can be worn as a dress or as a maxi skirt and the three button jacket is cut very cocoon-like with kimono sleeves and two front pockets. It's almost as if the designer copied one of ERTE's posh 20's subjects clad in elegant Poiret.

Sad About Bernie Mac

We are so saddened by the loss of comedian Bernie Mac, who died so early at the age of 50. His show was so sweet & hilarious, and he was a valuable role model. We think of The Bernie Mac Show as today's answer to the Cosby Show.
