Other than family, friends and a good party, not much makes me happier than good fashion. Today I dedicate ‘Happy Friday’ to a one of my recent favorites…Mother of Pearl. Collaborating with American artist Fred Tomaselli for their AW12 collection, they redefine the term wearable art. With his trippy collage paintings turned pretty prints, Hang Over cleverly becoming crystal embroidered necklaces and sneakers combined with tailored, feminine silhouettes, this collection is like taking a fantastical trip in a magical place with your best friend..
