This time a story about a trunk show that is happening today in New York City…one I am so sorry I have to miss because I am here in Los Angeles!
Got an email the other day from friend Bobette Cohn. I have known Bobette for years…met her through friend JD at a dinner here in L.A. up in Beverly Glen if I remember correctly.
Then, Bobette was in town for some high end shoot with one of her celebrity clients. Bobette is a highly sought after fashion stylist – styling for magazines as Vogue and Italian Vogue and dressing actors of the likes of Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes.
Haven’t seen Bobette in a year or so…and then I got an email about a trunk show she was having! It turns out, Bobette has turned her knack and love for style into her own very posh designer collection.
Bobette has turned her love for vintage fashion into a very new style concept. She finds vintage silhouettes and pieces and uses those as the templates for her line. The result is a collection with a classic feel but with a very modern sensibility. I could actually see our first lady Michelle Obama wearing a Bobette creation and/or one of the girls from the MTV hit The Hills (I know many of you might think the Hills girls should not be mentioned in an article about high fashion but I only mention to speak about how this collection is versatile, young, hip and elegant all at the same time…:-)). The collection includes vintage like fabrics including brocades and quilted fabrics…and many pieces with intricate beading and detail. Love it all…the dresses, the skirts, jackets, sweaters and blouses all exude elegance, charm and fantastic style.
Anyhooo, Bobette’s line runs from $700-1500. Right now, pieces are available directly through her at [email protected] or via phone at 212-644-9172.
Most importantly, if you are in New York today…go to her trunk show (see invite below).
If you go, please send me pictures of anything you buy and I will do a post! Have fun shopping! I will be jealous and happy for you at the same time (the two emotions can coexist).
Here are some additional samples from Bobette’s fab collection below!
Love this feminine pink cocktail dress with the sash waistband! (above)
For you interior decorating and design purists….will get back to design, decorating and all that (blah blah blah) in the next post. These pieces were too amazing…had to talk about them. Plus, you never know…a little fashion may inspire in home decor!
