On February 4th, INC International Concepts, exclusively at Macy's, celebrated the launch of its Spring 2016 campaign in collaboration with Murad and Nataly Osmann, the Instagram duo behind the iconic "Follow Me To" travel photos.

Hosted atop One World Observatory, INC unveiled its Spring 2016 campaign for the first time via large-scale photo installations and product vignettes with styles from the INC men's and women's spring collections. Guests enjoyed a travel-themed experience with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and music by DJ Leslie Kirchhoff. Hosts Murad and Nataly Osmann showed guests how to recreate their signature "follow me to" pose with a special #FOLLOWINC photobooth.

Notalable guests included Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Chloe Norgaard, Shaun Ross, Ty Hunter, Simon Collins, Scott Lipps, Eric Rutherford, Leslie Kirchhoff

Shot in Mexico City by Osmann himself, the campaign features images of the globetrotting couple in their signature "follow me to" pose. The campaign and partnership will continue into Summer 2016 with a second quarter campaign shot in Morocco.

Valentine's Day Fragrance Pick: Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker

Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker 10th Anniversary Edition

Still one of my favorite fragrances to date is Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker, which celebrated its 10th Anniversary in September, by introducing a special Anniversary Edition in a new Luxe Eau de Parfum Spray. 

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since Lovely had launched back in 2005. Years ago when I was in my friend Doris' wedding, she had chosen Lovely as the bridesmaid gift, and it's been a favorite ever since. 

Lovely has top notes of soft citruses (nectarine and bergamot) and woody (rosewood) notes, with a touch of lavender. The fragrance opens further with notes of apple martini, white daffodil and orchid. The base unites white amber, cedar, woody notes and white musk. 

The limited edition bottle, which has Sarah Jessica Parker's signature with love & kisses, is still available at The limited edition bottle portrays the romantic style of vintage perfume bottles with a modern twist, in a champagne pink, metallized finish topped with a regal gold cap. The limited edition fragrance is available as a 3.4 oz Eau de Parfum, retailing for $68.
