Vivre Summer Preview

Last week, on one of the coldest days yet in New York, I had the opportunity to attend the Vivre summer preview that definitely had me wishing for warmer weather! Vivre had taken over an empty apartment in the former Stanhope Hotel which has been converted into luxury residences. It was filled with so many amazing objects, clothing and accessories that I almost had sensory overload...but in a good way!

In the living and dining room was a huge table covered in summer treasures and amazing jewelry including pieces by my new favorite designer Hassan Bounkit. Bounkit is originally from Casablanca, studied in Montreal and Florence before working for Ferragamo, Nicole Miller and Srnold Scassi. Each piece of his jewelry is exotic and interesting and an exclusive selection can be found only at Vivre.

Part of the decoration included painted trees in orange and fuscia which were actually fitted into the table.

It's apparent that Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti and her team at Vivre like fabulous things and the Bruno Frissoni raffia platform slingbacks above are beyond fabulous!

Vivre has an interesting selection of carved figurines including a lobster and crab and what looks like a beetle above, that will be new for summer.

More painted trees and chunky necklaces.

I've seen the Pig Bank from the Reality series by Harry Allen before in gold and chrome but hot pink resin looks fun for summer.

You can buy anything for your home from Vivre now including books for your library.

All the summer tunics, bikinis, bags and hats definitely had be pining for summer or at least a vacation. Vivre always seems to know just what a stylish woman needs to pack.

Vivre carries an amazing array of textiles and for summer will feature pillows in exclusive patterns from Ankasa.

I loved this secretary in the bedroom filled to the brim with cute little bags including the Vivre zipper pouch in an array of colors and skins. But the pièce de résistance was the amazing headboard by Casamidy that is surprisingly light and can be easily installed.

All in all, my preview of the summer collection was the perfect pick me up on the coldest day of the year and I want to thank everyone at Vivre who was so nice and helpful!
