Perhaps it is because I have spent the past two weeks searching for inspiration in markets and fabric shops throughout Hong Kong (more on this soon), but I find myself drawn to Jane Herman's style and position as Gap's Director of Concept. Full disclosure, I'm a bit partial to past and present Voguettes and their ideas on style (smile). I also love a girl with a great art collection. Anyone who knows me can attest that after fashion fine art is one of my greatest loves. Jane works for Gap's Global Design Team and travels the world sourcing ideas. The creative process at all levels amazes me.
There is something refreshing about having an easy weekend style. I call this weekend style because it's too casual for my professional life. Even on weekends I need to be a bit more formal than this, but a girl can still dream. I love how Jane pairs designer pieces with her Gap pieces and manages to look laid back but elegant. The entire look is delicate and a bit gamine. It's a look that I would like to incorporate into my life. These images serve as inspiration for Lindsay K's emerging off duty look if you will.
In addition, to the images of Jane's attire, I appreciate when a home is decorated in a way that compliments one's style. Designing a home is no different than curating a wardrobe. It's a means of expressing who you are. I like that Jane's style comes through in the way she has decorated her home. There is something meaningful in the objects that she has found on her journeys. I only wish the photographer had taken a few closet shots. (Closets and bookshelves get me every time). An organized closet is the first step in building the perfect wardrobe.
