Jewelry Designer

New York jewelry designer Monica Rich Kosann creates modern day heirlooms, available on 1stdibs, meant to evoke a sense of timelessness. Kosann began her career as a photographer, an endeavor she still pursues, after completing art and design studies at RISD, FIT and the Sorbonne. Kosann's daughters, Laura (left) and Danielle (right), are tastemakers in their own right: the duo are founders of the popular food and lifestyle site, The New Potato. In honor of Mother’s Day, we asked these talented ladies to handpick their favorite items from 1stdibs, which include Arthur Elgort photographs, Chanel frocks and Art Deco collectibles. For more from this inspiring trio, head to The Study and read our interview where they discuss family, food and — of course — jewelry.

...
Arthur Elgort is one of the world’s top fashion photographers and a lover of fashion, ballet and music. He never goes anywhere without his cameras; his favorites are Leicas, Linhofs and Rollies. He loves to shoot fashion because it is historical, ceremonial and ritualistic; the same reasons he loves ballet. His favorite recent shoot was at the Vaganova School in St. Petersburg, Russia where he has visited in the past and most recently in the Spring of 2006 for Vanity Fair. Arthur loves working with Vogue’s Grace Coddington and traveling all over the world- to Brazil, China, Russia and Maine....

1974 True Haute Couture Chanel Silk Chiffon Dress...
...
The dress is amazing and finding anything from the ateliers of Chanel is special but the true Haute Couture pieces even more so. The gown is two pieces layered over each other and both are entirely done by hand . The ribbon weave silk chiffon is of the highest possible grade and has a beautiful custom print. It feels stupendous on. The top is loose fitting and the sleeves slightly voluminous above their cuffs. A classic Chanel tie sits smartly at the neck and you can tie it as I have shown or do a looser more casual version. Each sleeve has a row of tiny hand covered fabric buttons on its cuff and I love the effect of the transparent panels of fabric as they run down the sleeve. The skirt is a masterpiece of fine, flat pleat work and an example of how finely done a pleat can be - each is spaced perfectly and so finely done you hardly realize they are there until you look closely and realize that is what gives the skirt volume - only in couture would this be as the cost would be prohibitive in RTW to do this. You will also notice that each line of the pattern in the silk brilliantly lines up with the ones beside it. The interior dress is a simple sheath and acts as a lining. It is so well made it could be worn on its own so in effect you almost have two dresses! It is truly a brilliant dress and when you see it in person you will be astounded at the level of craftsmanship and care put into the construction. A masterpiece. In excellent, museum quality condition. Haute Couture is the very pinnacle of the fashion experience and I would hazard to say that vintage versions are even a little more special then modern ones. This dress also comes direct from the daughter of the original Haute Couture client so has not been on the market prior to this. The exterior dress is unlined with all interior seams hand finished. It closes with the buttons down the front and hook& eye. The interior dress is fully lined in black silk and it closes with a handset side painted metal zip. The cuffs button with a series of hand covered silk buttons. Finished to Haute Couture standards and entirely done by hand.

His work has been included in the publications Town and Country, Holiday, Venture, LIFE and most well known for his photograph Poolside Glamour. Closely aligned with Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson, Aarons declined to join them in the founding of Magnum, leaving behind the world of black and white for sun-dazed glamour and frivolity. His intimate portrayals of the in crowd and jet set are rich in the wit and charisma that afforded Aarons such incomparable access to the highest of societies. Print is available in 20 x 16, 30 x 20, 40 x 30, and 60 x 40 inch sizes.
 IFAC is proud to represent Aarons' vast collection of negatives and transparencies, which span six decades of a lifestyle many dream of but few experience.

Giclée Print, Rag Paper...
Coco Chanel was photographed for LIFE in 1957 at the age of 74 during her “comeback.” Mark Shaw's informal, grainy, black and white images of Coco Chanel were created using an unobtrusive 35mm camera and film processing methods that enabled him to eliminate all other photographic equipment. Although Shaw's techniques increased the grain and contrast of the photographs, the lack of intimidating, distracting flash and lights allowed him to capture an unusually relaxed Chanel. 22" x 32" image on 24" x 36" paper, Edition of 30 All Mark Shaw prints are made to order in limited editions on Hahnemϋhle photo rag paper. Each print is Estate stamped on the back and signed and numbered by David Shaw, and accompanied by a letter of authenticity. Lead time is four to six weeks, but we often receive them sooner. *Please note this image is available in 4 sizes. Prices increase as editions sell out....

All photographs are printed and authorized by the Getty Images Gallery, London. Photographs are printed utilizing the original transparency held at the archive source. Aarons began his career as a combat photographer in World War II.

Slim Aarons is noted for his documentation of the Beautiful People over 50 years, encompassing high society, celebrity, aristocracy, and the jet set. He was born and raised in New York City and New Jersey and later New Hampshire. He took up photography as a teenager. At the age of eighteen, he enlisted in the U. S. Army and was later appointed official photographer at the United States Military Academy at West Point. During World War II he served as an army combat photographer for Yank magazine in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. After the war he became a freelance photojournalist, first based in Hollywood, then Rome, then New York. His photographs appeared in many magazines, including Life, Holiday, Town & Country, Look, Venture, and Travel & Leisure. His first book A Wonderful Time (1974) is considered a classic.
