Harpers Bazaar Style Setters: Tommy Ton

Tommy Ton of Jak and Jil captures the Fall's most coveted pieces for HB in the August issue. This entire editorial is expoding with inspiration. For someone who considers grey a color and has to be gently encouraged to not wear head-to-toe black from September to March, my excitement for the shoot says A LOT. I am absolutely enthralled by the styling of this shoot. Love, Love, Love! I am super excited to experiement with lots of color and pattern mixing this fall. However, I am still drawn to my first love (black) and that first shot of the Stella McCartney jumpsuit with the sheer polka dot panel is KILLER!!! Tommy Ton is a creative genius and is best known for the amazing photos he takes and posts on his blog

Julie Chaplin, author of the bohemian and ever-so-inspiring book Gypset, just debuted her new clothing line. The Galactic Weekender collection is inpired by the 80's and a traveling bohemian. Prices are decent and the prints are genius. The five dresses that make up the Gypset line come in bold, graphic prints and sophisticated cuts inspired by Chaplin's world travels. So far the hot new label is sold exclusively at the West Coast boutique, Des Kohan.
