This month, Nicolas Busnel brings his Côte d’Azur lingerie line Maison Close to 32 Grand Street.

“My sheer mesh catsuits ($200) and lace thongs with detachable collars ($65) are for an androgynous super-vixen. The store was designed to look like my house in Cassis, with purple curtains, a sofa, and metallic gold accents. I’m planning on having days where customers can come in and design completely custom handmade lingerie, and I’ll close all the curtains.”


Store in a Store
Last week, Burberry unveiled a scarf bar in its newly redesigned Soho store (131 Spring St.).

1. Talk it out: Specialists equipped with iPads greet customers at the scarf counter, guide them through the customization process, and offer styling tips on wrapping techniques and what’s trending in the scarf world.
2. Pick a color: Customers choose among 30 new scarf (from $450) and monogram ($75) colors, including purple, fuchsia, three shades of blue, and patterns like polka dot; scarves can be monogrammed with up to three letters in two sizes.
3. See it off to Britain: Each cashmere scarf is woven on a loom in Elgin or Ayr, Scotland. It’s then either monogrammed in Britain and shipped to New York within ten days or, if not monogrammed, taken home from the store that day.

If you can’t actually buy clothes, how does the store work? It’s like an indoor Burning Man–slash–Occupy Wall Street. When you walk in, you’ll see street artist Adam Cost and ENX’s wheatpaste installation next to shirts and dresses that I bought from Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 but printed with images of eagles and South African patterns using my collection of 1880s trademark stamps. A tag might say that a skirt is $50, but there will be no one there to take your money. I’ll say, “You can just have it, but you have to make something in return.” In the second room, I’ll have blank clothing and will teach you how to use the stamps, so that you can customize something. In exchange for your “purchase,” your creation will go “on sale” in the front.

Ask a Shop Clerk
Jane Van Cleef just opened a Gowanus shop for her handmade, organic doll line, Hazel Village (510 Third Ave.).

Do the animals have a backstory? They are all part of a utopian society, like the utopian societies upstate in the 19th century. There’s Owen Fox, Zoe Rabbit, and Phoebe Fawn (from $34), who are made out of organic fleece and wear interchangeable pieces like flower crowns ($6) and apple-picking outfits ($26). We sew all their clothes here. It sounds funny for them to be in Gowanus, but our market lines up with the people who shop at the Whole Foods a few blocks away.

“My partner Jake Lamagno and I started as a secret antiques shop in the back of another store on the Lower East Side three years ago, but now, with our own store, we’re bringing in new things that complement the old pieces. Everything’s not thrown in one big pile like most antiques stores nowadays; it has a cleaner vibe. The hand-forged kitchen knives by Zachary Fish (from $200) are displayed alongside contemporary-art objects like a 3-D-printed tiger skull dipped in 24-carat gold ($7,500). There’s also room for our taxidermy, like the full-size black bear we remounted on a piece of marble and reclaimed wood and put into a 150-year-old antique display case ($19,000). We left the 100-year-old decaying paint on the front window and kept the old electronics-store sign that was here before us because, even though we have a storefront, we want to be disguised.”


How It’s Made
The fragrance-customizing Osmologue robot debuts in October with French perfumer Ex Nihilo’s outpost in Bergdorf Goodman (754 Fifth Ave.).

1. Customers choose one of eight existing perfumes for the base scent and one of three additional raw materials, like iris pallida or vanilla bourbon, to personalize a new fragrance (from $365).

2. The Osmologue weighs and distributes the chosen ingredients in a beaker.

3. An expert puts the beaker onto a magnetic plate and emulsifies the liquid for one minute.

4. The finished fragrance is funneled into a glass bottle, which can be capped with a choice of onyx, buffalo horn, or mother-of-pearl.

5. Customers may use the perfume immediately, but Ex Nihilo recommends letting it rest for up to ten days, after which the mixture will finish settling and each scent will be expressed to its full potential.

On November 24, Jean-Marc Gaucher, the CEO of French ballet-inspired brand Repetto, will open its first Stateside shop (400 W. Broadway).

“We were thinking about the days when we would custom-design shoes for Brigitte Bardot and Serge Gainsbourg. The store presents our first line of heels, which includes the fringed Virgin Tutu ($895), with ’60s-inspired ostrich feathers. We’ll still have the ballet flats that we’re known for — there will be an atelier where people can customize them in 250 colors — and the rest of the shop is ballet-inspired, too. We’ll also have taffeta skirts and shop clerks who are professional dancers.”

“We change the design of our Korean stores with each new collection every 25 days. In New York, because of the permits, it will change every three months.

You’ll follow a maze through the 800-square-foot store, and some openings will lead to shelves holding our leopard print sunglasses ($255; above) and round half-framed stainless-steel eyeglasses ($274); others will lead to presentations from European artists.

How do meditation and pole dancing go together?
“Quite naturally. You tend to hear a lot of giggling in pole classes because people feel vulnerable, but that just means their emotions are more on the surface. Bringing mindful meditation into it gives them the opportunity to bring awareness to their emotions and themselves.We have a philosophy called the five pillars of confidence, and each pillar matches with a move on the pole. With ‘mindful sensuality,’ the move looks like a body wave on the pole, so as you’re standing with your legs wide apart, you start by touching your forehead, then chest, then tummy, then hips to the pole, and then you sink down and throw your booty backward. It’s about taking yourself seriously as a sensually empowered person.”


How to Use High Heels for Self-Defense

1. “If you see someone following you into your vestibule and closing in on your personal space, the first step to protecting yourself is taking your shoes off. Without portraying the body language that you’re ready to fight, grab each shoe by its heel — this is the quickest way to get them off — and make sure the first foot is fully grounded before picking up the second.”
2. Now that you’re standing on a flat surface, switch to holding the middle of each shoe, so that the heel is pointing out toward your attacker
3.“Bend your arm 90 degrees, hold your hand at eye level, and, facing the attacker straight on, slam the heel into his chin or nose. The shoe can inflict a lot more pain and distraction than your hands.”

The most flexible handbags colours

Now that the year is nearing completion, it’s time to really hope onto New Year’s patterns. If you’re a crossbody bag obsessed (aren’t we all?) after that you need to understand that black, nude and also brownish were the trending handbag shades this year. If you’re to splurge on a high-end bag currently of the year, you want it to be something you can carry over to the following year without really feeling out-fashioned.

Black is a classic colour, but including one more black bag in the last point you wish to do now. There are a lot more versatile bag colours that will make for a lively carryall in the next period. We have done the research for you and also create the most effective purse shades of 2019. Without further ado, let’s look into these must-have purse shades.

Least Flexible Handbag Colour

Right now, a black handbag is the least versatile colour. Even if you wear black constantly, a black handbag is no good. It is way too much black in one outfit. A delicious chocolate brown purse is out too. It just works with a totally earth tone closet of tan, woodland eco-friendly, as well as cream.

The response to your inquiry: the # 1 versatile bag colour is a pinky taupe, however here is the full checklist of the most flexible purse shades:

  • Blusher, or Pinky Taupe
  • Light Grey (If you have a lighter coloured wardrobe).
  • Tan (If you don’t wear pastels).
  • Soft Metallic.
  • Deep Emerald Green (If you have a bright or dark tinted closet).
  • Mauve.
  • Light Blue (If you have actually a lighter tinted closet).
    Merlot (If you have a darker tinted wardrobe).

What Is The Most Flexible Bag Shade For You?

As I pointed out, I utilize the same bag every day for work, so I have to lug that # 1 pinky taupe colour to guarantee my bag goes with the entire variety of my job closet’s colour scheme. Your wardrobe may not be as diverse as mine, so you can check out the various other functional purse shades. Below are the exceptions (the no-nos) to every colour provided over …

  1. A mostly black and also tan wardrobe does not go with a light grey or mauve bag.
  2. A mostly light closet will not select a muted tan purse.
  3. A brilliant coloured wardrobe does not compliment a muted tinted bag. It makes the bag look filthy.
  4. A muted tinted wardrobe does not enhance a bright tinted bag. It makes the garments appearance filthy.
  5. One of the most functional bag shades often tend to opt for all closet shades, till you mix a lot of black into it.
  6. If you put on a little of black each day (ie: black shoes or black remains in all the prints you use), then a black handbag CAN be one of the most flexible handbag colour for you.
  7. If your closet is based around navy bear in mind that navy is rarely the same shade. Pairing a navy gown with a navy purse can commonly fail due to the fact that the shades are close, yet no cigar. Rather, go for one of the shades recommended above.

When doubtful, get a handbag colour that matches your footwear. If you are putting on lighter tinted footwear, like white and also nude, choose a flush or baby blue handbag. If you are wearing mostly darker tinted shoes, like black or navy, choose a red wine or tan handbag.

What Is One Of The Most Functional Equipment For Your Handbag?

When deciding on your flexible handbag shade, bear in mind which precious jewellery tones you like. If you mainly wear silver, a bag with gold hardware will clash with most of your appearances. It’s finest if your purse has no equipment, but that can be challenging to discover. If you need to have metal decorations, choose the metal you generally use. If you’re using both silver and gold, like myself, a champagne or low-key metal is the best option. It is subtle so it can pair with climbed gold, silver, and gold without issue.

What Is One Of The Most Functional Forming For Your Handbag?

If you put on a great deal of organized garments, a structured handbag will match you best. If you’re putting on more slouchy, bohemian looks, a structured purse will look rigid, or swiped. I have a tendency to go with organized bags for my daily work bag, and also leave the softer bags for my day of rests.
