I HEART Kelly Wearstler

13 Sep

I seriously do heart Kelly Wearstler – but I think I heart her more as an interior designer than an exterior designer (i.e. fashion designer).  Granted – this is only her second ready-to-wear collection; however,  it just doesn’t add up to her amazing interior spaces.  With spaces that outstanding, it was going to be tough to compete – even with herself.

Here are a few comparisons.  I realize that it is a bit difficult to judge between two different categories – a coat vs. a couch or a blouse vs. a bar is not a typical match up – but I think you can do it, and I want to see if you agree with my assessment.   Happy Judging!


BG at Bergdorf Goodman


Blue geometric gown


Entrance and vanity area in a Brentwood Estate


Pink and white zigzag print blouse with navy blue full silk skirt



Living room in a pied a terre


Mustard, black, and white MOD ensemble



Lounge at the Viceroy Santa Monica


Black and white color block coat – (this one is actually a tough call for me…the coat was my favorite look in the collection)

I look forward to hearing your reviews!

    I agree- it seemed like such a good idea because half the treat in reading a spread on her interiors or hotels was seeing what kind of ensemble she had put together for herself, but it just doesn’t shine through on the runway 😦 I think that is a lesson that personal style doesn’t equal runway genius (this makes sense because the inverse is most definitely true). I am enjoying your posts- next best thing to being there. Maybe when Fi is a couple years older…
