The Boutiques of My Favorite Designers

My three favorite brands or designers at the moment are Isabel Marant, Phillip Lim, and J. Crew. I thought it would be fun to take a look inside each designer’s free-standing boutique.

First Up: Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant Boutique in Paris

I think I would really like visiting this space-there are certain elements in this picture alone that I love-the industrial light fixture, the chair, and the black beams against the light floors and ceilings.

Next: Phillip Lim

Wow-I can’t get over how different these spaces are! New York is so old world with the herringbone floor and wood-paneled wall and LA is so futuristic with the curvilinear shapes, and use of materials such as foam and cork.  I can’t decide if I prefer one over the other-thoughts?

And: J. Crew Collection Store

I love this little jewel box of a store-the Serge Mouille light fixture, the herringbone floor, the Platner chairs-such a fun mix of styles-very similar to the aesthetic of J Crew’s clothes.

For the most part, the boutique spaces feel like an extension of the brand-Isabel Marant’s simplicity mixed with fun details, Phillip Lim’s edginess and boldness, and J Crew’s eclectic traditionalism.


Love Phillip Lim, Love His Loft

There’s a great article at NY Times about Phillip Lim and a few pictures of his SOHO Loft. I am a HUGE Phillip Lim Fan, so it makes perfect sense that I am drawn to his personal space just as I’m drawn to the clothes he designs.

How awesome is that floor lamp? I love the scale and boldness of it. I am a huge fan of art casually  leaning-so effortless! Wish there were a few more shots-undoubtedly the rest of the house is this amazing.
