Fashion Friday: Mansur Gavriel Fall 2018

Truthfully, I hesitated to publish a post about fashion on a day like today. After following the national news so closely this week, my heart just feels heavy. Fashion is so often associated with frivolity, and I don't want to disrespect or in any way diminish the seriousness of this moment. Yet since the beginning of time, beauty and art have served as a balm for weary souls. And I truly do believe that in these challenging times, one of the most important things we can do as a society is to celebrate our commonalities and seek connection with each other. Fashion, music, art, little everyday moments- these things not only have the power to connect us but also to lift our collective spirit.

All month I've enjoyed keeping tabs on the Fashion Week shows via Instagram. Mansur Gavriel is a six-year-old brand based in New York, focused on Italian-made products with great attention to material, color, and detail. Since they released their very first bucket bag, I've been captivated by the brand's feminine-meets-minimalist aesthetic. Mansur Gavriel's Fall 2018 RTW show at Spring Studios hit all the right notes. Guests watched the show from tables covered in the brand's signature shade of pink and laden with pretty confections from French patisserie, Ladurée. Coming across these images on my Instagram feed was a much-appreciated breath of fresh air. 

Sending you extra love and light today! And wishing you a restful and restorative weekend! xx
