We met the super sweet Nettie Kent in the middle of February at our hotel in Gramercy Park. We were in NYC for the markets and Nettie had contacted us several months previous to introduce us to her jewelry. I was particularly taken with the really cool organic shapes and the brilliant thay gold she uses for several of her pieces. Notable trivia: Nettie worked for Philip Crangi, Jill Platner, and Pamela Love before striking out on her own. Anyways, we’re happy to announce that our NK fall order has finally arrived and is now available on the shop!
There are certain designers whose work compels me to keep checking in at their sites. Vladimir Karaleev is one such designer. He’s now offering footwear, and there’s a S/S 12 collection preview that definitely deserves a look
I’m hugely excited to finally make this little announcement today. The shop now offers a very limited, special edition piece by Erin Considine created only for Pour Porter. Erin and I had been discussing doing something like this for several months and I was bowled over when she sent pictures of the completed necklace. I think my emailed response contained an offensively large number of exclamation points and caps! The necklace’s simplicity coupled with the variety of textures and subtle colours perfectly captures what I feel is the shop’s aesthetic -simple but interesting.

Mondays are typically our new arrivals day, and since our fall stuff seems to be pouring in daily, you’ll start seeing lots of new things at the beginning of every week. This week sees the return of the classic Swedish Hasbeens Jodhpur boot and Rachel Comey’s comfy, quirky Barbaro.
