I play basketball. Okay, I pretend I still play basketball. Okayyy, the last time I played basketball, I broke my cousin’s nose (totally an accident) (he has very poor reflexes) so it’s probably best I don’t play anymore. But the newly designed Paris Duperré basketball court certainly inspires me to give it another shot – literally. The iconic court has been given a new vibrant makeover created in collaboration with the fashion brand Pigalle, design agency Ill-Studio and Nike. So…I’ll meet you on the court? But you should probably wear a helmet.

When was the last time you said you were bored? I honestly can’t remember. Growing up, it was not uncommon for me to whine to my mom that I was bored and she would come back with a slew of possible things I could do to entertain myself, none of which sounded remotely appealing. Go outside! Climb a tree! Read a book! Walk the dog! She also would remind me how much of a luxury it was to even be bored. That one always went right over my head. Until now.

I miss the long, sleepy summer days filled with nothing to do, or seemingly nothing to do. I have some of the best memories of those times. Water colors in the backyard, making perfume out of my mom’s garden flowers, driving around with friends, talking about everything under the sun and more.

This may sound a bit romantic and nostalgic, but who cares? You can chalk it up to being a youth with no real job yet, but also to having to actually use your brain and creativity to entertain yourself. You couldn’t just pick up a device, open an app and while away hours scrolling through images of people you’ve never met. It’s almost like you have to work harder to avoid the constant onslaught of information around you. Truly uninterrupted time with yourself or friends is so rare nowadays.

My mom was right. Being bored really was a luxury.

A Beauty Minute with Ariana

Posted by The Atelier

Morning: My morning beauty routine starts from the inside out. I do ‘pulling’ with a cold-pressed sesame oil for two minutes and then use a new copper tongue scraper that I’m slightly obsessed with before meditating which is the ultimate practice if you want to truly glow. Then I begin on the topical things. I rinse my face with Diptyque’s Infused Facial Water: a cleansing rosewater and then apply our MAKE Moonlight Set to even my skin tone and protect against HEV and Infrared light. I follow with some minimal makeup: concealer and our MAKE Universal Stick, a versatile Lip & Cheek Stain.

Day: I never leave home without Marine Salve for my lips. I tend to always do my makeup in transit so, also keep a clear Sculpting Lash & Brow Gel on hand, Face Gloss and a Brow Pen – all easy products for mobile application from MAKE. I like to keep a fragrance or oil with me and am currently using Maraki Nomad Sacred Spirit Oil which is infused with Palo Santo. Haeckels Seaweed and Geranium Hand Balm makes me (& my hands!) feel human and sensorially grounded.

Night: I run a bath with Wild Dog Rose & Birch Bath Oil from Haeckels and Epsom or Sea Salts for ritual cleansing and relaxation. I use Aesop’s Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser and then hydrate my face and body with MAKE’s chamomile infused Succulent Skin Gel, finishing with a lip treatment using a Sea Salt Exfoliator & Marine Lip Repair, as my lips tend to get quite dry.

Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don’t make compromises, don’t worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned about doing good work. Protect your work and if you build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency.

Phillip Lim DTLA

I really love the new Phillip Lim store in Los Angeles. It’s beautiful, spacious, open, and above all, inspiring. Lately I’ve noticed I’ll often go into stores and have to dig through tons of clothes that are coming at me from every direction. After a few minutes, I’ve lost all desire to buy something. But here, it’s different.

At Phillip Lim in LA, there’s plenty of space and the collaborations are interesting without going so far as being a concept store. The non-clothing items you find there are quite simply a collection of things that are part of Phillip’s life, like these gorgeous plates made by BDDW, a designer and store I love, which I’ve already told you about.

We love @shopdoen at the Atelier, but I especially love their instagram! They seem to have found the most beautiful desaturated color palette that perfectly captures their brand. Flipping through their feed I feel like I’m frolicking through a field in Texas or lounging in a hammock on a hot day in LA (all in the most flowy, boho but not tooo boho clothing). For some little escapes during your day, I recommend following @shopdoen!

Day to Night / The White Dress

Too often our first notion of a white dress is bridal. But a white summer frock isn’t strictly reserved for weddings or Swedish Midsummer celebrations, there’s a real elegance in a woman wearing a perfectly cut ivory dress with ease.

I love when a dress has an edge of reservation, it can be taken from casual chores around the city to a sophisticated evening out. Our friend Caroline is from California so that sense of relaxed glamour just emanates from her. Tousled blonde locks and an infectious giggle are the perfect accessory to take this unassuming Elizabeth & James dress from day to night.

I have long admired Ulla Johnson’s ability to capture femininity with a sense of fluidity and movement. So although this may not be a full look book, the designer’s Fall / Winter 2017 campaign can not go unnoticed. The vibrant landscapes of Iceland where it was shot provides an ideal juxtaposition of hard & soft. An idea that falls perfectly inline with this collection’s warm color scheme and slightly edgier approach.

Bye Bye Colette!

Posted by Garance

Last week, the concept store Colette announced they would be closing, after twenty years of being open.

I’m sad to hear Colette won’t be around anymore, but I’m also happy because I think it’s wonderful to decide to leave on your own, at a moment you choose yourself.

I could already sense their resistance to expansion when Sarah (who founded the store with her mother, Colette) told me she didn’t want to open a chain of stores, because a project like that would be impossible to duplicate.

It’s something I think about a lot, because these days, the only model of success presented in the fashion world is expansion. Your small beauty brand is doing great? Okay, let’s turn it into a multinational company. A bag is selling all over the world? Cool, let’s sell it to a huge brand. I’m not necessarily against that, but I don’t think it should be presented as the only way.

Colette has always forged their own unique path, and that’s what made it magical. It was a real social phenomenon that created its own momentum, its own culture. That’s where I had my very first exhibition when I still lived in Paris.

Sarah had confidence in me right away, before anyone knew who I was. And I know that’s the case for a lot of artists and designers. Together, Colette and Sarah changed the way we saw fashion. They mixed luxury and streetwear, smartphones and clothing, and opened a water bar long before everyone was talking about wellness. They helped to define our modern view of elegance.

So I think it’s great that they’re setting a classy example for us as their wonderful adventure comes to a close.

Inspiring to the end!!!

On the Island of Ibiza

I’ve been seeing a lot of Ibiza on my Instagram feed thanks to some very fashionable friends of Atelier Doré. I mean it makes sense, it is summer and we are friends with a few Europeans…

So when a few friends opened a new hotel on the island (more on that later) we decided it was the perfect moment to bring together some people that we love and dive head first into summer.

Jenna Levine knows a lot about food and a lot about beauty and a lot about the way the two things influence and affect each other. Certified in California Native Plant Botany and Herbal Medicine, and having spent time studying with a naturalist in the Amazon as a teenager, it makes sense that she has a line of natural beauty products called Linné that are built to nourish your skin. Today, she’s sharing a few recipes that are as delicious as they are beneficial for your body.

We had Jenna breakdown the importance and effectiveness of a few of the key ingredients (only a few, but there are many!) from fruit to fish to fancy nuts grown in Peru. Her approach to food is a reminder just how versatile and abundant eating for health can be.

Alyssa’s style is interesting because it’s not just one thing. If you follow her on Instagram (as you should…) you’ll know her looks can go from being femme, colorful, and modern to downright edgy. And while her wardrobe is full of versatility, what I like most about Alyssa’s style is her confidence to commit.

Like her fully retro inspired ensemble above. Her cute vintage blouse is reinforced by thick gold hoops (rich in cultural and sartorial history), vintage inspired mom jeans that you either love or hate (I love), a Birkin style bag that needs no explanation, and a pair of Nike Cortez’s that are pleasantly and coincidentally patriotic (Happy Bastille Day!)

After all, what you wear should be an extension of who you are – even (especially) if that changes on a regular basis.

Alyssa is a fashion market editor at Refinery29. It’s probably clear by now that she sure knows how to put an outfit together. It’s also probably clear that she has a great Instagram that I definitely visit on days when I have a hard time getting dressed. And she has a bunny – cute!

We love Vans at the studio. And by “we” I really mean “Natalie and Carie” whom I admire from afar as I internally wish I could be more of a sneaker person. I think a pair of Vans fully provides a cool girl, downtown vibe – now more than ever as Vans x Opening collaborated on a wildly colorful printed pair. Inspired by the qipao, a traditional Mandarin gown, it’s an interesting and practical shoe for the fall, don’t you think??

I never thought I was one for bohemian interiors until I stumbled into this vintage store in Brooklyn that I’m almost hesitant to talk about because I love it so much and want to keep it to myself forever. But here we are. The Dobbin St Coop has some seriously incredible vintage finds, mostly for the home, as well as some other tchotchkes and goods. Even if you don’t live locally, their Instagram serves up some serious interior inspo and has me wanting all the mid century, kilim rug, velvet covered, rattan made things.

Sag Harbor Summer

My preferred mode of relaxation during the summer is time spent at the beach – any other travel just feels out of place for the season. And unlike my yearly trips to hippy-come-modern Cape Cod, time spent in the Hamptons is marked by a certain level of sophistication. With her affinity for summering in Sag Harbor, Jessica Joffe knows exactly what I’m talking about.

The point is not for women simply to take power out of men’s hands, since that wouldn’t change anything about the world. It’s a question precisely of destroying that notion of power.
