dCc Behind the Design: Morton & Hudson

Darlings, today I am delighted to introduce you to the fabulous handbag brand Hudson & Morton, which is designed by a talented childhood friend of mine. These bags are the utterly perfect combination of downtown cool & uptown sophistication. I have asked Sydney a few questions about the inspiration behind her chic Fall 2012 collection ....

Where do you find most of your inspiration?

I find that most of my inspiration comes from my travels. The exposure to different cultures, art and architecture has always been the primary driving force behind my designs. For this Fall collection, I was inspired by the clean lines and crisp tailoring in menswear as well as the architecture in Nicolas Alan Cope photographs

How did you get your start as a designer?

I got my start as a designer almost immediately after I graduated Parsons School of Design in May. Internships at Donna Karan and Rag & Bone as well as my Parsons fashion design education helped me learn all of the facets of the design process- from conceptualization to production to sales. I've always dreamed of having my own line and after weeks of sketching and sample making, I decided to go into production and bring this company to life. 

What is the "must have" bag in your Fall 2012 Collection?

Blush is THE color for Fall, which is why I designed each bag in Blush. The Village Clutch is made out of a gorgeous pebbled lamb leather and I find the texture so compelling- the color and the texture combined certainly pop with any Fall outfit. 

To learn more about Morton & Hudson or to shop the collection be sure to visit the website here

And it related news .... check out my Couture Column today on Young Sophisticates as it's all about the clutch! 


Happy Halloween!

You've got to love anything that's orange, black, and starts with an "H" ... Hermes & Halloween!! Happy Halloween darlings!

Dylan Lauren's Divine Dress

Well darlings, I am so sorry that I offically missed Wedding Wednesday yesterday, but I thought I would make up for it by featuring Dylan Lauren's stunning wedding dress. What makes it even more special was that it was designed by her father ... Mr. Ralph Lauren. I know that my wedding day has passed, but I am still waiting for Ralph Lauren to develop a full bridal line!

I absolutely adore the beaded bateau neckline of the "Aspen" dress pictured above, truly timeless!

The Perfect Entrance

This weekend we picked up many of our wedding gifts, which were still in Southern California. It was quite fun un-packing them all and continuing to decorate our apartment. I adore this entrance table ... come on - boxwood balls, beautiful mint julep cups & bold stripes ... does it get any better? Design dream.

A Little Bit of Leopard

This week I was delighted to receive this fabulous leopard stool I ordered. The subtle leopard print looks perfect in our living room. If there is anything I have learned it is that a little bit of leopard in a room can go a long way!
