No one hosts a garden party quite like Tory Burch. For her Spring 2014 collection, which was inspired by the French Riviera in the 1960s, the designer invited us in to a botanical wonderland of greens and whites with hints of coral and the occasional sparkle of a jeweled collar. Although we consistently love her bold prints, it was her textiles — dupioni silk, crochet overlays, lattice cutout leather, and pleated cotton — that had us wanting to reach out and touch. Even burlap looked lush, though the oversize beaded appliqués didn't hurt. And we'd be remiss not to take a moment to ogle the Tabitha Simmons-approved accessories: low heels and metallic slingbacks for shoes and handbags that included structured crossbodies, wicker-esque totes (filled with greenery for the catwalk), and another chic update on the fanny pack that had us very happy indeed we came to this folly.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are taking their customers on an exciting voyage with The Row's Spring 2014 collection. The show space, covered with cream-colored material that made it look like the inside of an old-fashioned camping tent, wasn't the only indication of their wanderlust: more than one editor commented that the show, with its languid lines and minimal garments, made them feel like they were going on safari.
Throw on a few Dannijo jewels, and you're easily fully dressed. Such was the lesson at the Spring 2014 presentation, where models oozed glamour in little more than silk nightgowns but layers of the brand's signature standout jewels. The Noir Collection attracted a crowd of designers Jodie and Danielle Snyder's celebrity friends — Rashida Jones, Coco Rocha, and Hilary Rhoda all stopped by the presentation, decked in jewels, cool-girl t-shirts, and denim.
That's how the Dannijo customer wears her pieces. Styled out in boudoir scenes and silk negligees at the presentation, you'll see these chokers, chandelier earrings, and jeweled statement necklaces more often juxtaposed with basics. But that's the beauty of the line — unique, romantic-feeling, special-occasion jewelry that you don't have to reserve for special occasions at all.
With all the polling surrounding New York's mayoral race, we decided to get the city's designers in on the action (after all, predicting elections can't be much more difficult than forecasting seasonal trends, right?). And as expected, their opinions were as strong as Karlie Kloss's runway walk!
The votes are in, and if designers including Tadashi Shoji, Rubin Singer, Misha Nonoo, and Dennis Basso, have their way, they'll have a notable client to dress when Christine Quinn takes the title. While we wait to see how today's primary pans out, see what other votes have been cast by the city's most fashionable set.
In his 80 years of living, Karl Lagerfeld has seen it all, done it all, and pretty much said it all. And since he truly is the man who has everything, what better way to honor today's birthday boy than with the gift of Karl? We're saying, "Happy birthday, Mr. Lagerfeld," by pinning eight life lessons from the Chanel frontman on our inspirational board. May we invite you to do the same?

With the booming beat of the tribal drum, Zero + Maria Cornejo launched Spring 2014. Seeking to explore a "modern way to look at things that have already existed" the collection incorporated architectural and anthropological references to past civilizations.
The structured separates were colored in the muted neutral hues of papyrus and linen, while graphic prints drew inspiration from the Palais de Tokyo and desert mirages. And in keeping with current trends, yes, the stomachs were bare! All combined, the collection was timeless no matter in which century it was set.
