Wrist Taking

In both our New York and Istanbul stores, we are showcasing these very chic, Missoni-inspired bangle bracelets. They are both playful and elegant and the perfect accessory for those flirty flowing outfits that catch the summer breeze. There's nothing like a little spring shopping to inspire the heat to arrive . . . and I'm hoping it will happen very soon!

I Heart Istanbul

I wanted to share some daytime photos from my new store.

Located in one of the most trendy areas in Istanbul, this quaint boutique is an extension of my New York brand. While you'll find some similar products in both stores, I try to accommodate specific needs akin to each market.

As you'll see from the opening photo, we've come a long way from that empty white space. And although it's a bit smaller than I'm used to, I've grown to love the cozy yet succulent feel of the environment I've created.

Many people have asked why I've established a sister store in Istanbul. Not only is it one of the most beautiful, fashionable, stylish, historical places in the world but also . . . well, I think those are enough reasons for now. Stay tuned and I hope to share a few secrets about this most exciting, romantic city.

Spring Rejuventation

I've been a naughty boy.

It's been almost a year and a half since last posting! I feel quite embarrassed. But for now, we won't blame the reticence on my technological aversions and simply say that I've been extremely busy building a presence in Istanbul.

Now that I've become a celebrity there . . . kidding . . . I've decided to take this rejuvenating time of year and attempt this medium once again. (I would appreciate any comments and suggestions to help this process along.)

Happy spring, and I look forward to blogging about this most amazing, and we hope, well-lived life.
