Older & Wiser Style
Valerie von Sobel, artist, designer, philanthropist and muse is an inspiring vision and creative bohemian. She mixes the most eclectic clothes and accessories with finely handcrafted wearable art in the most harmonious and exciting way. Elegant, flamboyant, classic, she is an enchanting sight to see.
Here she wears ORG by vio wearable art and jewelry handmade by talented Amazon artisans, and other accessories by artists and designers sold at our store the Sage & the Butterfly in Idyllwild, CA, and online here and here.
Valerie is featured in the latest book by author Ari Seth Cohen, Advanced Style: Older and Wiser. Ari Seth Cohen started photographing people in their 60’s and up that express themselves creatively through the clothes they wear. “What started out as a blog in 2008, grew into a book, film, and eventually a movement re-imagining our vision of aging and vitality,” Ari recounts on his blog.
We are inspired by the promise of growing “older” and wiser. “Age is just a number,” Valerie states in a recent article in the printed Style section of the Los Angeles Times. More articles on Advanced Style here. and here. Get your copy here.
