Spring essentials: Our Must Haves for Spring 2010

Spring has finally arrived and it’s time to store away those J. Mendel Furs and the Chanel satin, black puffers with white ruffled collars. We at Master the Art of Style have edited our spring shopping list, to a few essential items that we can’t live without this spring…..

David Pedroza’s Picks…..
Haute Couture always chose the best that fashion has to offer! One of my favorite looks from Givenchy Spring 2010 Haute Couture, a chiffon, pin-tucked jacket, but in Black of course. The attention to detail and workmanship makes this a piece of art!

Kiehl’s Drawing Paste- I have used it for the past year and can’t go without it. This paste is full of zinc and other vitamins, maintaining the integrity of our skin. Best when used at night

Kiehl's Drawing Paste $17.00, at Bergdorf Goodman NYC

Alexis Mabille Satin, bi-color, bow tie. Fun and cheerful for evening.

Christine Suppes’s Picks…..
This black and white graphic suit from Chanel Spring/Summer 2010 was the standout for me of the daytime collection. It reminds me a bit of Geoffrey Beene, but with all the wonderful Lesage touches.

A must read- Secrets of Longevity: Hundreds of ways to live to 100 by Dr. Maoshing Ni, this will change your life!


April Hall’s Picks……
Jumpsuits - They're finally in this season, and they come in just about any color, fabric, and length. I love them for day and night, casual and elegant. This season's safari and utilitarian versions in neutrals and khaki will make great comfortable day looks, but the truly fashion-forward crowd might want to try something daring...like prints.

DVF Jersey Jumpsuit, $500 at netaporter.com

Diane von Furstenberg hand-woven bracelets - Handmade by Zulu artisans in South Africa from re-used telephone wire, these bangles encompass both style and function. They add color to a breezy summer look while supporting women in developing countries. I hope to see a lot more of this in coming seasons.
