A few of InStyle‘s favorite trendsetters are celebrating motherhood by showing us how wisdom, taste, and beauty can be passed from one generation to the next. See the fashionable advice from the moms of Tory Burch, Nate Berkus, Aerin Lauder, Brian Atwood, and more in the gallery. Because when you’re this chic, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Brian Atwood is launching his first bridal collection this summer, and we’re saying “yes!” The celebrity-loved shoe designer’s lineup includes 13 pairs of princess-worthy pumps covered in a variety of white, ivory, and nude satin, jewel glace silver, white leather, and ribbon detailing, as well as one nude satin handbag encrusted with Swarovski crystals. “It’s impossible not to get caught up in the romance of a wedding,” Atwood said. “Creating a collection that makes women feel sexy and beautiful on one of the most important days of her life is an honor.” The pieces are made to order and will launch on brianatwood.com this June for $895 to $5,295.

Shoe lovers, the Brian Atwood New York flagship boutique is open for business! With its arched entryway (carved from a single piece of marble), custom satin seating and mirrored walls, 655 Madison Avenue is a shopper’s dream. “I wanted a closed environment, sort of like a Faberge egg—to give just a little hint of what’s inside from the outside,” he told Instyle.com as he gave us a tour of the Manhattan space. “Then when you come in you have a chic haven for women who love shoes and handbags to just come and go crazy.” The designer collaborated with decorator William Sofield of Studio Sofield on the luxurious interior. “There’s that balance of very Old Hollywood glamour with gorgeous sexiness,” said Atwood. Adding to the unique experience, all the shoes in the designer collection—including exclusive store styles—will have a 655 Madison Avenue metal plaque on the soles (left). We’re ready to run over in our stilettos, how about you?
