London by night and a stroke of magic

What happens on a cold night when beauty intersects with the best of creativity in a city as wonderful as London, can easily be called magic. Having Luca Meneghel draw out its marvelous vision from the heart to meet a stunning Doina Ciobanu halfway, is enough of a promise that the empty streets are to become the stuff of dreams. And while deep sleep falls…

Pleasure born out of torment: Jessica Choay

If clothes could whisper, what would they say? Would they talk about pleasure and happiness? Would they be blunt or deceptive, turn words into magic, or empty them of all meaning? We may never find out that much, but we do know of at least one designer who seems to always find the right voice to gift her garments with. Jessica Choay‘s effortless take on…

Want right now: the Jessica Choay cage belt

Jessica Choay has a knack for turning a minimalist sweet of fabric into a roar of sensuality. We’ve seen that time and again with her lookbooks and campaigns, each one filled with dresses whose luxury is whispered in their immaculate cuts and beautiful fabrics, never needing to state their case with embellishments or heavy details. And so it stands to reason that if Choay was…

Jessica Choay: The Classics revised

In a relatively short amount of time, Jessica Choay taught us to embrace the unexpected, to seek the impossible, to cherish femininity and applaud the use of imagination. With the fall / winter 2013-14 campaign, the designer went even further in translating her signature “lingerie as outerwear” designs into a purely irresistible concept; this time around each of the garments were gifted with a unique…

Like a diamond in her light (video)

One can’t simply enter what is Jessica Choay‘s impossibly sensual universe to leave it feeling completely unaltered. On the mists of desire, celebrating the muse hidden in every woman, veiled in the delicate silks and acting upon instinct, Iliana Chernakova stars in the designer’s first lifestyle film directed by Steve Duchesne. A glance at what Jessica’s world withholds leaves you longing for the fantasy, feeling…

The dress that dances: Jessica Choay

Pretty in photos but impossibly gorgeous in reality, Jessica Choay‘s dresses have a life of their own. Like this ruby red one I wore during Paris fashion week, made from shifting panels of the softest silk. You don’t wear it, it floats around your body. It doesn’t just move, it dances. The other spectacular thing about pieces of such beautiful quality is that they don’t…

The little red dress: Doina Ciobanu

They haven’t become ubiquitos in so much as they have become iconic. Plunging necklines are an easy statement to make, slit dresses a stronger one. Envisage them in your mind’s eye, however, and it’s likely that you picture a floor length dress with a thigh-high split. That, or Angeline Jolie’s right leg. But spring 2014 is fast shaping up to be a story of something…

The head-turning, statement-making little black dress

The slit that rises up the thighs. The short hem. The way the the sheer layer responds to the wind and movement thus breathing life into the dress. The way statement after statement are layered into this one, little black dress. The stone balcony. The palm trees beyond it. The water, and all the yachts moored in it, beyond those same trees. All of these…

Lace, bikini and pool side grace

There’s only so much you can do in the heat of high-summer in the south if France. Sun by the pool, read a book while sunning by the pool, swim in said pool, or, to really mix things up, frolic at a nearby beach. I love water, I love swimming, but such repidity bores me stiff. So while spending part of my summer in St…
