BW: Reel Love

Woody Allen’s ‘Manhattan’, a tongue-in-cheek and visually stunning romantic dramedy about a hopeless romantic writer dealing with a mid-life crisis and the affections of two vastly different women, is just one of myriad romance films set in New York City. It’s no wonder, it’s a city of beautiful sights and millions of people just waiting to be swept off their feet or knocked head over heels. Outside of the city, though, romance lingers in the reel world and offers an exciting journey for the hopeless romantics, film critics and movie goers…or Netflixers. What’s not to love about love? Especially when you’re not the one dealing with its ups and downs. (We all know it’s worth it, though.)

BW: Zoe Karssen

RTW, chutzpah chic is what I love about the Zoe Karssen collections.
A wonderful blend of minimalism, pop culture, and of course, monochromatic zest in several pieces.

B&W: Duda Lanna

Duda Lanna, a Brazil based artist, combines the chaotic, abstract and patterned in a collection that, to me, screams design pandemonium or high-octane, Rorschach-esque, geometric fine art. Though many pieces are doused in vibrant colors, the black and white pieces hold a sense of muted flair paired with classicism and symbolism.
