To coincide with Costume Institute’s upcoming “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit Moda Operandi has tapped 12 high fashion designers and brands to create a limited edition punk-inspired capsule collection--that'll ring in at luxury price points no doubt.
Can you really trust the 'conflict-free' label when it comes to diamonds? Some consumers are wary--which is why brands like Forevermark, Tiffany & Co., and Brilliant Earth say they are going above and beyond the standard process to ensure their diamonds are conflict-free.
Last night, we stopped by Party for the Pelicans, a charity event held at The Wooly to benefit the oil disaster, specifically the Endangered Species Coalition's efforts to protect the more than 40 endangered species being negatively impacted. The party was full of cool people like Arden Wohl, Tom Sachs, Leelee Sobieski and Waris Ahluwalia, who lent a beautiful piece from House of Waris to the event's silent auction. If the piece weren't so far out of our price range, we would have bid our little hearts out. We're super jealous of whoever got it, but if it wasn't you, head to Barneys this week, as all proceeds from House of Waris will go to the Endangered Species Coalition. Sculptor Tom Sachs is also helping out--he made this amazing necklace made out of little polar bear sculptures and about $40 worth of quarters, all the proceeds of which will also go to the ESC.
