I’m very excited to reveal one of Tyche by Julie Paulino new collections.   The Modern Fasteners Collection is manufactured in New York City and entirely made of Deox Sterling Silver, a more durable and tarnish resistant silver, natural stones and high quality CZs.  The unique and intricate pieces are available in gold plated, gunmetal plated and silver finish.

The Modern Fasteners Collection was inspired on regular everyday objects, exemplifying jewelry designed for everyday use facilitating layering, mixing and collecting.

Sterling silver is considered a precious metal and when combined with natural precious stones such as Onyx, Aquamarine, Rose Quartz and others the result is classified as fine jewelry.  Tyche by Julie Paulino can customize each piece with your favorite stone and finish.

It’s interesting to see how sometimes a home becomes sort of like the opposite of its owner personal fashion style.  Ines de la Fressange‘s Paris home is an example of this with its trademark pink walls and very feminine side that stand apart from her more masculine fashion style.   A very bohemian laid back atmosphere.

I had been waiting for The First Monday in May to be available on iTunes and yesterday it finally happened.

The First Monday in May Available on iTunes via belle vivir
The documentary directed by Andrew Rossi, the same director behind the film
Page One: Inside The New York Times, chronicles the arduous work that went into the preparation of 2015 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute exhibit China: Though the Looking Glass.   Every year The Met hosts a Fashion exhibition under The Costume Institute department which opens with one of the most exclusionary fashion events; The Met Gala.  In this inspiring and often funny documentary we can see how Andrew Bolton, current head Curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, works hard and under stressful situations to make sure that every single detail is flawless.  Along with Andrew and a massive team from the Museum, we can also see Anna Wintour, Vogue editor-in-chief and chair of the event doing what she does best, supervising every single detail of the Met Gala preparation and making sure that is at Vogue standards.
I absolutely enjoyed the film and found it very insightful into a sometimes otherworldly world of celebrities and high fashion.  The First Monday in May is now available on demand, iTunes and Amazon video.
