Charles Youssef

CFDA awardee Charles Youssef presented his Fall/Winter 2016 collection at Milk Studios during New York Fashion Week. His label represents the metropolitan, modern woman and emphasises on elegance, form and function. Set in a dreamy landscape, his fall collection exuded ethereal beauty and luxury balanced with the minimalistic, pleated style of Japanese origami.
His attention to detail, construction and tailoring is absolutely impeccable! Dramatic voluminous shapes, billowy sleeves, full flowing skirts were paired with nipped waists to accentuate the female form.

 

For his fall collection he used mostly white to add a refreshing contrast to black and shades of indigo, purple, grey and fuchsia. Satin skirts were paired with cashmere sweaters, crisp white collared shirts with tailored pants and dresses with exquisite pleated detailing and patterns.

 

I loved the structured origami inspired white coats and the white, purple and black colour blocked dress with organza sleeves. Which one of the outfits caught your eye? Let me know in the comments below.

Dannijo X Cointreau La Soiree

 

 

Summer is the perfect time to throw parties, or as the French will call it – soirees. The Art of La Soiree with Dannijo X Cointreau event was an elegant affair to get inspired on how to throw a beautiful cocktail party!

Who would know style better than Danielle and Jodie Snyder – the sisters behind the trendy jewelry label “Dannijo” themselves? Their jewelry is sold on Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman among several high end stores. Celebrities such as Rihanna, Beyonce and Kendall Jenner are also fans of their jewelry line.

Just as exquisite as their fashion label, their event definitely set the bar onto how to add a touch of glamour to hosting a party. Cointreau – the famous French liqueur brand also provided special cocktails and recipes for us to try. We even got to mix our own signature drink with our preferred ingredients at the bar. Cointreau has a sweet, orange flavor which tastes great when it’s mixed with fruit juices or even muddled together with fresh berries, citrus and herbs. It does make it the perfect drink for summer!

I really loved how beautiful and grand the whole place looked. There were harpists playing melodious music along with the DJ.  Arches of real orange branches decorated the ceiling,  Dannijo’s latest pieces of jewelry adorned statues of greenery and there were crystals, flowers and candles everywhere.

We also were invited to sit down to have dinner at an opulent dining table that was absolutely breathtaking. French lavender was the inspiration behind it so was laden with  violet goblets, amethyst crystals and floral arrangements within glass prisms. To top it off, we were served with lavender lemonade mixed with the Cointreau.  Did you know that the lavender flower is edible? It adds a lovely flavor to drinks and food. I  just loved how it all the intricate details came together to present the color in such an elegant way. Lavender also happens to be one of my favorite flowers for its evocative scent and relaxing properties.
