This Week
On The Avenue

  • Girl of the Week

    Our it-girl of the week has to be Giovanna Battaglia, who looked stunning in Carolina Herrera at the American Ballet Theater’s 75th anniversary gala on Monday night. We especially loved the mix of patterns and textures and playful use of accessories (excuse us while we try to steal that necklace). We’ve always been obsessed with the fashion editor’s style and glamour, but this week she’s definitely a standout.

  • The Obsession Continues

    After Christie’s record breaking sale last week the entire art community seems to have Picasso on the brain. And the obsession continues this week. The New York Historical Society recently acquired its first Picasso, his Le Tricorne, a stage curtain that was painted for the 1919 premiere of The Three Cornered Hat ballet and that used to hang at the Four Seasons Restaurant. To celebrate, the organization will be hosting a dance themed exhibition with works by artists like William Adolphe, Will H. Gradley and Philippe de Champaigne exhibited alongside the Picasso, in order to “provide background to the traditions against which [Picasso] rebelled.” The exhibition opens on Friday May 22 so make sure to go see it.

  • Holographic

    This week we’re bringing a little flash to our summer accessories with J. Crew’s Iridescent Hologram Tote. With its futuristic vibe and constantly morphing color tones (green or red depending on the lights) the shimmery bag is the cool way to dress up a weekend outfit or leave a blinding impression on the beach.
