New Sergio Rodrigues store in New York

One of my favorite Brazilian furniture designers is opening his first shop in New York at the ripe old age of 84! His chunky leather chairs are the epitome of comfort to look at as well as lounge in. I am very excited. Way to go, Sergio!!

NYTimes article reads...

"Sergio Rodrigues is in the enviable position of amassing a cult following while still alive. And at 84, the Brazilian designer shows no signs of stopping. Next week, he has a new store opening in New York, his first in this country in more than 40 years. (His previous store, OCA, in Carmel, Calif., closed in 1968.)
The 2,000-square-foot space, Espasso Sergio Rodrigues, will occupy the lower level of Espasso, a TriBeCa shop specializing in Brazilian design. It will initially carry 17 of Mr. Rodrigues’s pieces. “To just have one or two pieces doesn’t tell the story of Sergio, because he has designed so many things,” said Carlos Junqueira, Espasso’s owner. “But I’m not putting everything in at one time.”
Prices range from $1,450 for the Mocho stool to $16,700 for the Mole sofa (the Mole chair, pictured, is $10,150, and the stool is $3,100). Espasso Sergio Rodrigues, 38 North Moore Street (Hudson Street), (212) 219-0017 or espasso.com. "

Grand Palais with K Lagerfeld...

I love love love the Grand Palais. Karl Lagerfeld clearly does too as all of the Chanel shows are there. I've been looking at Casamidy all day. The Manchez chair could be great for a Grand Palais with Karl Lagerfeld inspired room...

Burberry Prorsum - toggle coat

Obsessed with Burberry Prorsum. Obsessed with this style. Obsessed with this color. And of course the hat... As soon as I get back from Bali, I'm gonna be looking for the below to wear over my newly purchased sunset silks...

The ad campaign is so stunning. Shot by the incredible Mario Testino.
