Dries Van Noten is known for being the Prince of Prints, but his Spring collection was particularly extroadinary. Collaborating with James Reeve, the second half of the collection features bold photographic prints. The silhouettes vary from crisp and neat, to cuts reminiscent of Spanish couture a la vintage Balenciaga. View the full collection here.

I live for the day that French Vogue releases their Collection issue. It's not the cheapest magazine ($40 bucks a copy because it's mostly ad free) but it's sooo worth it! I highly recommend you stop what you're doing and pick up a copy now. Looks from the McQueen show grace the cover, and the magazine catalogs all the best shows in New York, Paris, Milan and London. There is even an Accessories section in the back, with beautiful still life shots. Harpers Bazaar and Elle have followed suit by publishing their own collections issues, and though I love them, this is the real McCoy.
I love The Coveteur. As I'm sure you do. They recently posted a look into Taylor Tomasi Hill's Marie Claire office. I really enjoyed it, so I thought I would share. BTW, the view from Hearst Tower (where I used to intern at Cosmo) is AMAZING. It's entirely glass from floor to ceiling — the best on snowy days.

I've been blogging for Tribeza for about a year now. Here are a few of my recent posts to my column, "A Few Favorites."
Geometric patterns and natural colors are great classics to have in your wardrobe and living space — and huge trends for Spring! Whether you choose a delicate, handmade jewelry item or a soldered terrarium, you can't go wrong with bold shapes.
