Oh Summer, I love you so. I always have, and most likely I always will. I love the sun, the way that it stays light so late in the evenings, and the mostly more relaxed state of being that comes with school being out of session. This particular year feels like the fastest summer on record. Technically, I suppose we are about close to being midway through the season. I feel like time is flying, and if I blink twice, we will be headlong into Fall. In the spirit of slowing down to really savor the rest of these long summer days, I wanted to showcase some of the beautiful cotton lingerie we have been making for our clients to take along on their summer holiday travel. We are using the highest quality Italian men's shirting cottons, along with exquisite lace from the unparalleled French lace manufacturer Solstiss. Solstiss supplies lace to the world's most storied design houses, including Chanel, Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Nina Ricci, and many more. The tradition and quality expressed though their beautiful lace is something that is unrivaled in the industry. This lovely blue and grey combination of striped Italian men's shirting cottons and lace from a custom set of lingerie we made for a client traveling to Nantucket A few of my favorites from the cotton and lace collection Our sleep shirt can also double as a piece to wear to the beach over a swimsuit Whenever I travel, I like to wear small earrings or studs on the plane. They're just more comfortable and easier to manage than longer, more dangly styles. Here are a few new additions and perfect options for summer travel days. Keshi pearl and rose cut cognac diamonds alongside a trio of brilliant diamonds A selection of studs and small dangle earrings with mixed cut and shaped diamonds Prong-set, pink and blue double pear-shaped, rose cut sapphire studs. Summer is made for poolside lunches and dinners, and this year has been no exception. I recently cooked up a feast for a dear friend's birthday. I roasted little red fingerling potatoes, made a simple Heirloom tomato salad (what could be better at this time of year??), an arugula, radicchio, spring onion salad with shaved parmesan (special birthday boy request), Harissa roasted wild caught Halibut, and a dense, delicious, and flourless chocolate fudge cake adapted from Ottolenghi in London. I sliced a selection of heirloom tomatoes, added shaved red onion, torn basil, crumbled goat's milk feta, and olive oil For this salad, I tossed wild arugula with shaved parmesan, sliced spring onions, and radicchio. I just toss with a splash of balsamic vinegar, fresh lemon juice, and olive oil. I sprinkle pink salt and freshly ground pepper after tossing. This chocolate cake is heaven, period. I serve it with creme fraiche and mixed berries. I hope you are having a lovely summer, whether travels take you far and wide, or you are in town enjoying the long days and more relaxed energy of LA in July. Swing by to say hello, if you're around! We have lots of new and beautiful summer jewels and lingerie to show you. Enjoy,
