Since Paris Fashion Week, my mind has been locked on inter-locked C’s: Chanel. My followers who tune into my IGTV show, Fashion Week with Krischic (specifically the couture week episode) know my feelings toward the Chanel SS20 Haute Couture show–quite lukewarm actually. But Chanel creative director, Virginie Viard redeemed herself of that pilgrim-esque collection with […]

Velvet Trimmings for Christmas

Velvet? For Christmas? Groundbreaking. Steadfast Krischic readers will know that I devotedly deck in the luxe fabric during this time of year (2017, 2018 and 2018 again!), but only recently did I discover the silk thread’s seductive powers on me. The key is in the connotation: during the Renaissance period specifically, wearing velvet was an […]

What It’s Like to Be an Artist’s Muse – LAFW SS20

I stepped in the Petersen Automotive Museum opening night for LA Fashion Week in a pair of floral, open-toed Steve Madden heels. My strut from the red carpet to cocktail hour was just as purposeful as I was sure the models onstage would be during the Noe Bernacelli Haute Couture show later in the night. […]

For some, Sunday brunch is an after-church affair. At Redbird, you go to church for brunch. Their ricotta blueberry pancakes are angelic, as soft and fluffy as heavenward clouds (As Mari’s post on this adventure will document, I even exclaimed “this is heaven” while consuming it, and the religious diction was quite purposeful). So, let […]

Wearing tweed with toes in the sand rather than in pumps. That is the evolution of fabric iconized by Chanel since its genesis in 1924.

Medieval legend has it that a woman of the purest heart could summon a unicorn if she was alone in the forest—that the rare beast would lay his head in her lap if her heart was true. I’d like to think that there are gems as rare as unicorns out there in today’s world, and […]
