Aimee Song x Monica Botkier x Vintage Weekender

Planet Botkier May 31, 2012

Summer is a great time to go to antique fairs and shows. The Brimfield Antique Flea Market in Massachusetts is the ultimate inspiration mall for everyone. Aimee Song interior designer from Song of Style teamed up with Monica Botkier in search of stand out treasures that marked their style and personality. Equipped with the fashionable “hunting” sneakers, Botkier crossbody and enthusiasm the two set off on the antique hunting trail.

Flea markets may be overwhelming but with eyes on the bright middle eastern patterns, rustic housewares and a splash of water the ladies, once again, were ready to continue on the path.

Aimee strikes a pose with an antique doll house. The doll house is something old, Aimee Song is something new, and the Botkier LUCY shoulder is something blue.

Monica Botkier had her eyes on the prize with the help of interior designer Aimee Song! These two mirrors resemble a pair of vintage English chandelier earrings.

See some of our Treasure Hunt finds…

You can enjoy and indulge at June’s list of antique shows in the New York and Connecticut area like Monica Botkier and Aimee Song did. Let the boys have their day and ladies prepare for girl time on the antique adventure trail.

You will find anything from $2.00 scarves to tasteful home furnishings, so come prepared to expect the unexpected because you will find things you didn’t anticipate in finding.

Comfy sandals or sneakers will keep you moving with ease

Cash; trust that you will not leave without at least one item. And you never know if vendors accept cards.

HAPPY TREASURE HUNTING!

All About EDEN – Holiday Resort 2011

Planet Botkier October 27, 2011

The Holiday Resort season always comes as a bright spot as Fall comes to an end and winter sets in. We start dreaming about a fabulous getaway somewhere chic and HOT! This season for the holidays Botkier has introduced bright statement bags that will accessorize any trip and remind you that winter will eventually give way to warmer weather…

The above trio of EDEN satchels is the best example of color blocking anyone can dream of. Chic and structured with unique hardware and bright clever color combinations to make any outfit pop!

It’s always great for us to see how the cool girls wear our bags. Above here is Natalie Suarez of Natalie Off Duty followed by our girl Aimee Song of Song of Style and Wendy Lam of Nitrolicious out and about in NYC. Their styles are all so different and they each make EDEN their own, a designers dream come true!

These images are from our inspiration board for Holiday Resort 2011. Photographed by Andrew Yee for a colorblocking story in  How to Spend It Magazine. Color blocking is a huge theme this year and continues as a strong trend into 2012. Love the red jacket above!

The photo above is a huge inspiration for me, I have it tacked up in my office. It’s from one of my favorite coffee table books – Hotel Il Pellicano, “Swimmers and Sailors”, Robert Scio (photographer), published by Rizzoli New York. I want to go back in time when I look at it!

More inspiration: vintage chic resort style.Vogue Australia November 2011Fashion Gone Rogue Nicole Bentley (photographer) and Alina Baikova (model).

This is a photograph I took myself while on holiday in Portugal. It was so beautiful there, the brightest blues in all imaginable hues. You can literally feel the sun on the kids backs… The family vacation, moments that pass too quickly.

Speaking of, this is a very personal moment for me on a family vacation at the age of 4 with my aunt in Miami. Talk about on trend, my bathing suit back then was right on! Good memories live in bright color.  xoxo Monica
