Chic Is Where You Find It
Above, this supple citron bag from Coach, with iconic brass turnlocks, reflects Bonnie Cashin's legacy.
Recently, Brilliant Asylum has been posting some amazing walk-in-closets and dressing rooms that rival the chicest shops. So, I thought it would be fun to re-post these images of Bonnie Cashin's boutique-style closet, featured in House and Garden, July 1969. Cashin, a fashion designer best known for her Coach accessories in the 1960s, believed that everyone should have a "boutique" in their own home with "colors erupting in a barely controlled riot." There is a nice online exhibition of her work, "Chic is Where You Find It" at the UCLA Library.
Above, Charlotte Moss included Cashin's famous quote, "Chic is where you find it," in a collection of inspired notepads.
