    We know you know her, but have you SEEN designer/New Yorker/wellness genie Norma Kamali lately? She is not only one of my most favorite designers (ever!), she also radiates this kind of glowy gorgeousness like few women I've ever encountered. She's been designing her namesake line since the late '60s, pieces that are now collected not only by yours truly but plenty of contemporary designers who draw inspiration from her ground-breaking perspective (ever heard of the infamous Sleeping Bag coat, crafted from actual parachutes?

While we go weak in the knees for her earlier pieces (her '80s blazers are beyond!), her latest collections still ring true to the Kamali perspective, merging female-friendly cuts with avant-garde shapes and adaptable fabrics.
