When it comes to style, we are all inspired by what we see; whether it be a well-dressed celebrity, a blow-your-mind catwalk presentation or even a fashionable passerby.
As fashion editors, we’re moved by all of the above, and then some. We’re exposed to under-the-radar labels; we get a first-hand look at collections months before they hit stores; we attend VIP events; we’re tapped into brands with chic-yet-cheap offerings and we shop — a lot.
To share our knowledge, FEMAIL brings you Style Swoon, a weekly series of the latest, greatest and on the verge. We hope this Friday series will serve as a buying guide and point of inspiration for all.
This week’s edition focuses on new launches, starting with supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio’s collaboration with PatBO.
On Thursday, June 23, 2022, Patricia Bonaldi, Founder and Creative Director of PatBO and supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio launched their first collection
On Thursday, June 23, 2022, Patricia Bonaldi, Founder and Creative Director of PatBO, and supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio launched their first collection.
To celebrate the 16-piece capsule, a seated dinner was held at new Italian hotspot, Fasano, located in the Midtown East neighborhood of Manhattan.
Alessandra put her enviable curves on display in the Fringe Trim Cut-Out Jumpsuit from the PatBO x Alessandra Collection, while Patricia beamed in the Plunge Fringe Mini Dress from the collaboration.
The Brazilian beauties were joined by New York’s top fashion editors as well as celebrities Lo Bosworth, Cara Santana and Olivia Ponton.
Guests, including DailyMail.com’s Style Director, Pandora Amoratis, enjoyed tasty (and beautiful!) cocktails from the evening’s sponsor, Cincoro Tequila.
Tables were covered in textured linens and decorated with tall candlesticks and floral centerpieces featuring tropical flowers.

This past September, Ambrosio opened and closed PatBO’s first New York Fashion Week runway show, which is when the idea to collaborate was born.
The two started designing the capsule right away.
‘I was really excited to work on this collection with my friend Patricia,’ said Alessandra.
‘She is such a talented designer, and the collaboration came so naturally. Being from Brazil I have always admired Patricia’s commitment to supporting local artisans and creating opportunities for people in our home country.’
Patricia added: ‘I think the collection is a harmonious combination of our personal styles and offers something exciting for every woman.’

Jeweler and breast cancer survivor, Julez Bryant, partnered with non-profit organization, Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC), to create the Warrior Pendant.
The elegant pendant includes a heart cutout (meant to expose the wearer’s skin, proving that they are a part of the piece as much as the piece is a part of them), sun rays and an arrow pointing up, to signify connection, beauty and strength.
Julez created the warrior pendant to support B4BC’s Chasing Sunshine Wellness Retreats.
Together, Julez and B4BC advocate for early detection and a healthy, active and sustainable lifestyle as the best means of breast cancer prevention.
In 2009, B4BC established the B4BC Survivorship Fund to connect breast cancer survivors with nature-based wellness and sustainability experiences to feel alive during challenging times.
The team at Julez Bryant and Boarding for Breast Cancer hope to remind the pendant wearer that they can move forward with strength, love and overarching joy no matter what.

New York-based designer Bach Mai dropped his Resort 2023 collection this week
Bach Mai told DailyMail.com that ‘This collection continues an exploration of expressive modernism and romantic classicism using Cy Twombly’s floral paintings as a starting point.’
Adding: ‘It draws from Regency era style vis-a-vis country club tennis-core glam recontextualized as maidens cloistered in a temple to Diana adrift in space.’
