OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. A glamorous, carefree, jet-setting aristocrat bounces around Tulum in an effortless white frock, its ruffled hem hand-sewn with a lace floral motif. Around her waist, a blue- and-white striped sash, gorgeous with hand-embroidered edges, is knotted into a bouffant of a bow. She is the definition of chic. This is the girl L.A. interior designer Mark Sikes imagines wearing his newest collection, a collaboration between his fashion line M.D.S. Stripes and Dallas-based Cristina Lynch's Mi Golondrina, swoony Mexican-made and -inspired clothing. "The collection is simple and the clothes are beautiful," Sikes says. "I think that's what most people are looking for — and believe it or not, it's hard to find." Sikes is one of the most well-known decorators in America. He loves blue in all forms, chinoiserie, and rattan, and has a fabric and wallpaper collection with Schumacher and furniture with Henredon. His first book, Beautiful, All American Decorating and Timeless Style, is a best-seller. This man is on fire. Lynch, whose aunt is designer Jan Barboglio, spent much of her childhood at her grandfather's ranch house in Mexico. It's only natural that her South of the Border heritage would drive her business: classic Mexican-embroidered dresses and tops, made with traditional Mexican methods by female artisans in Oaxaca. About a year ago, Lynch and Sikes finally met in person, after a mutual- admiration affair via emails and social-media messages, and a collection was born. "M.D.S. Stripes is known for blue-and-white stripes, and Mi Golondrina MARK D. SIKES and CRISTINA LYNCH Have a Blue Moment Mi Golondrina x M.D.S. Stripes is known for its Mexican hand-embroidery," Sikes says. "So there you have it: a blue-and-white collection with our stripes and Mi Golondrina's signature, beautiful embroidery." The showstopper is the Julieta sash, which can be worn as a waist-wrap or tied into a summery, skin-baring top, now lush with hand-embroidery. The Mi Golondrina x M.D.S. Stripes collection debuts this month at and Christina Geyer Model Ashley Louise Perich and Mi Golondrina founder Cristina Lynch, both in Mi Golondrina x M.D.S.
