Named for √Čvelyne Bertrand, this easy light weight style was designed in 1978 to carry grooming equipment such as brushes, combs and other horsey must haves. Until recently the bag was part of the equestrian collections, however in recent years it has become extremely popular. It offers a little less 'bling' than a Birkin and the hands free style is so simple for day to day life.

The Vintage Contessa & Princessa Book launch at Kirna Zabete

We had an amazing time at our New York Mother Daughter tea party, book signing and trunk show at Kirna Zabete earlier this month. We were honored to have beautiful Scarlett herself join us for a little while, although sadly she was not well enough to attend the full event. We were all so touched at the great attendance and support we received on the day. The highlight was standing outside on the red carpet waiting for Scarlett to arrive with all the children cheering and celebrating the special moment. Thank you for joining us and stay tuned for news of many more events throughout the year! 

If you haven't discovered our new book yet The Vintage Contessa & Princessa, you can purchase it on the website here. A portion of the proceeds from the book sales and from sales at our trunk shows will be going to The Scarlett fund for pediatric cancer research.

Introducing The Vintage Contessa & Princessa

A Letter From The Author

Ciao!
I feel as though I'm living a dream to present my first children's book, written in collaboration with my creative and fashion forward six year old daughter, Bella. Set against a fashionable and luxurious backdrop, the story is a journey of discovery for young girls, exposing them to what is truly important in life. This book seeks to celebrate beauty growing from within yourself while sharing special moments with friends and family. The Vintage Contessa & Princessa is about building integrity and creating resilience while following our passions, overcoming challenges and giving to friends.

When Bella and I first thought of writing the book, we knew we wanted to give a portion of the proceeds to help children in the midst of challenges. We had been touched by the sadness of cancer as we watched my 7 year old goddaughter fight to win her battle with the disease. She continues to fight moment by moment, and through her, we have discovered that despite the challenges, there are moments that ARE precious.

We realize now that a smile, a laugh and a rolling of her beautiful blue eyes are one of life's most prized possessions for us. This is the message that the book tries to share with its readers, both young and old; that life is not about perfection, and that the word luxury can be applied to the smallest, most beautiful of moments. Now that we live with cancer in our family, we would like to reach out to other families living with cancer and walk with them in their journey by connecting with charitable organizations in their communities.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of The Vintage Contessa & Princessa will go to cancer charities in communities around the world. Both Bella and I hope that you and your little Princessa will enjoy reading the book and planning your own fundraising parties to help people with cancer. You can purchase the book on our website here and you can find out more about the Mother Daughter Teas we are doing around the country to raise money for cancer charities here.

Monday Muse: Brigitte Bardot






She is absolutely stunning. Brigitte Bardot seems to have a very specific beauty trait possessed exclusively by French women. She's sexy, she's bold, and she's also got a little bit of a mean streak. Known for her bikinis, and beehive hairstyle, Brigitte Bardot was once the ultimate object of desire. Loved by men all over the world, including Bob Dylan, and the Beatles. In addition to being a ballerina/model/actress/singer, Bardot's face was the model for Marianne, the face of French Liberation. And we have her to thank for starting the trend of ballet flats, and the Bardot neckline (scoop neck). Thanks, BB, for your fearless, fierce, fashion forward trendsetting ways.

Monday Muse: Elizabeth Taylor


Monday Muse: Elizabeth Taylor


The Taylor-Burton Diamond, first worn at Princess Grace's 40th Birthday Party.

The Krupp Diamond


Elizabeth Taylor: where do I even start? She was talented, beautiful, and crazy. I could go on for pages about her unbelievable personal life, and career, but lets get down to business, her jewelry collection. I would gladly wed and divorce eight times too, if I could guarantee the Elizabeth Taylor Package, which includes Van Cleef aand Arpels, Bulgari, Cartier, Ruser, David Webb, Tiffany and Co, Harry Winston, and quite a few custom pieces as well. Most well known from her collection was her 33 carat square diamond ring from husband Richard Burton, known as the Krupp Diamond. She wore this nearly everyday, especially in her later years. The most impressive piece however was the 68 carat Burton-Taylor Diamond, given to her by Richard Burton. This was the worlds first glimpse at a million dollar diamond and it was given to Taylor at the height of her fame. She and Burton were the most well known couple in the world at the time. After their divorce, however, Taylor auctioned off the diamond and with the proceeds, built a hospital in Botswana. Showing that sometimes, spite for your ex can benefit others. Teach us your ways Elizabeth Taylor!
