You love your clothing. We know! We're the same people. We love fashion and style too! That's why we're not surprised to see this boom in celebrity fashion designer home good collaborations. After all, who wouldn't want to buy a beautiful shirt and then a matching chair to go with it? Sounds like a good plan to us!That's why these stainless steel bowls by Paul Smith are must-have items for your condo, house or even your small, fourth floor walk-up rental. They come in a handful of bright, bold colors on the inside, yet look sleek on your kitchen counter or on your table. Plus, they're very functionable - use them to hold food, spices, and more ... or pop a lid on them and use them to store small items. The choice is yours. Just enjoy!

There are stores I love, and then there are stores I wish I could love more. Oh, and by love I mean shop at. Barneys is one of those stores. Creative Director Simon Doonan has such a refreshingly lighthearted take on designer fashion that other high-end department stores seem to lack, and when the day comes that I lose all self-restraint and decide to blow my life savings on Lanvin bow pumps, I know I'll need plenty of humor to get me through it. I can count on Barneys for that. In the meantime, I'll have to focus my sights elsewhere, but when I heard Paul Smith was designing an exclusive collection for the retailer, I figured it deserved some attention! The collection of suiting, separates, and shirts, fittingly titled "Exclusive," will be available in Barneys flagship stores this fall. Smith had this to say about the upcoming line: "I have been privileged to work with Barneys New York for many years and so it's really great that I can do something that is especially for them and create an Exclusive collection where the designs are very Paul Smith." So what can we expect? Lots of striping, check designs, and velvet. So what if it's for the boys? You know I'll be there to check it (and the shoe section) out anyway.
