Reed Krakoff’s arty office in New York

What a fantastic weekend. First day at the beach this year and I am still so happy with all the lovely reactions to our new column Earthly Delights of last Thursday! It makes you feel happy and at a time, you know the next edition has to be really good again. Even better, if possible. We have an exciting theme though for July and I am already thinking of its production.

El fin de ha estado fantástico con 1er día de playa del año incluido. Aún me dura la felicidad por todas las reacciones recibidas por nuestra serie Earthly Delights que lanzamos el jueves pasado. Por un lado muy contenta y por el otro ya sabes que la próxima ha de ser como mínimo muy buena de nueva. Al ser posible, mejor. Tenemos un tema muy guapo, y ya estoy pensando en la siguiente producción.

But let us come back to some interior musings. I spotted a Reed Krakoff bag in Winter 11/12 for the very first time in Verona, Italy when giving a training there. I was about to step into my clients boutique when a little voice from the opposite window was ‘calling’ me. There was this amazing handbag having my name on it. It took me some time to find out the label but since then I am having the designer on my radar. And the bag on my wish list.

Pero volvamos al mundo del  interiorismo. Me topé con un bolso de Reed Krakoff durante el invierno 11/12 dando un training in Verona, Italia. Estuve a punto de entrar en la boutique del cliente cuando me pareció oír una voz ‘llamarme’. Y allí estaba ese bolso impresionante que parecía llevar mi nombre grabado. Una vez descubierto el autor de esta maravilla, se me ha quedado grabado y lo tengo en mi radar. Y claro está, el bolso está en mi lista de deseos.

This is fashion designer Reed Krakoff’s office in New York. To be honest I didn’t expect less, even so I had to look over and over at the images and start googling different pieces he owns.

Y este es el despacho del diseñador de moda Reed Krakoff en Nueva York. La verdad es que no me esperaba menos pero aún así me lo tuve que mirar varias veces, y empecé a investigar en Google alguna de sus piezas.

His stunning office desk and the ‘bone rocker’ are created by Amsterdam based designer Joris Laarman. His collections can even be found in museum exhibitions. They look to me organic, very feminine but at the same time somehow graphical and do remind me of Zaha Hadid’s designs.

He says at the interview with AD that ‘he is not decorating but mixes things he is interested in.’ Well, certainly he has an impeccable taste for it!

El diseñador comenta en la revista con Ad que ‘no decora sino combina piezas que le interesan.’ ¡Yo diría que hace falta un gusto impecable para ello!

He has collected that many different ‘curiosities’, he is now swapping them between his office, boutiques and homes in Manhattan, Palm Beach, and East Hampton.

Ha coleccionado tantas piezas especiales que ahora las intercambia con su despacho, boutiques y casa que tiene en Manhattan, Palm Beach y East Hampton.

So, his office shows this great mix of home, being kind of a gallery and an office at the same time. You must be quite creative to achieve that. I knew when spotting that bag, I’d love the creative person behind…

Así que su despacho muestra un mix fantástico de sentirse en casa, estar en una especia de galería y despacho a la vez. Ya lo creo, has de llevar la creatividad en la sangre para ello. Ya sabía yo que me iba a gustar el autor de este bolso…
