new york: Isabel Toledo’s new book March 13th, 2012
About a year ago we wrote this post about our favorite fashion couple, Isabel and Ruben Toledo, swoon and sigh!
Well, the lovely Ms. Toledo (with illustrations by husband Ruben) has just released a memoir:
‘Roots of Style; weaving together life, love and fashion’, which looks beautifully moving and inspired - particularly the underlying themes of success coming in many wonderful guises and that creative ‘fermentation’ is a really important process to be savoured and enjoyed!
Available after April 1st at your local book shop, can’t wait!

Welcome to the inspired , visionary, madcap world of Isabel and Ruben Toledo, a fashion/art love combo from NYC.
They met in high school in New Jersey, both originaly from Cuba they shared a love of art, fashion and the underground dance club scene of eighties New York. Known as the fashion designer’s designer, Isabel became more widely known after Michelle Obama wore one of her creations to Obama’s inauguration. Her designs are known for their detailed construction, in part due to her training as a repair seamstress at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she learned the intricacies of vintage costume design.
Ruben is extremely vocal about Isabel being his ultimate muse, she inspires everything he does, his fashion illustrations and paintings are magical and appear regularly in Vogue and other high end magazines. Often collaborating together, Ruben and Isabel are both highly revered in their fields.
We love them for their incredible talent, passion, collaborative lives and careers, and the fact that they are so, so in love with each other after more than 30 years together!

LOVING these joyful fly-on-the-wall photos from the wonderfully cluttered Harlem home of Albert Maysles (and wife Gillian) – Maysles is the revered documentry maker of iconic films ‘Grey Gardens’ and ‘Gimme Shelter’ - he is so adored there is even a website devoted to an old pair of his eyeglasses!
