Elizabeth has been creating her own line since 2010 but the SS 12 season is her first offering it to retailers. I can’t tell you how utterly bowled over I was when she sent me her lookbook for this season. Her designs are anything but the same-old -they’re subtle, interesting, classic, and the workmanship is amazing. She not only drafts all of her own patterns but she sews every piece. Consider my mind blown. This is serious, quality work.
I first became acquainted with Sarah’s jewelry line via instagram. Yes, Instagram. Yes, I’m hooked. Anyway, her pieces have a relaxed, delicate geometry and are inspired by the natural world. She sources, dyes, and assembles all of her jewelry by hand, and I should mention – they’re very affordable. I paired both necklaces with a couple of Elizabeth’s pieces and some other coming-soon items.
I’m just super excited to be offering these two handmade lines now. Really, it’s what the shop is all about so definitely check it all out!
Remember back in September when I kicked off our Customer Profile Series with an interview with Kimberly Wu? Well, during the interview process I asked her if she might be interested in making a few bags for the shop. Six months later and Kimberly and her sister Nancy have launched the Building Block line with their debut BLACK collection. Guys, these bags are AMAZING. Beautiful leather, super practical, and very comfortable to carry. You do not want to miss out on snapping one of these up.
And speaking of beautiful bags (raw leather anyone?), we’ve brand new S/S 12 A’N'D arrivals including the flat heel bag pictured below. The leather is soft and substantial – a definite eye-catcher. Check out their new spring items here
Um, holy freaking amazing. Animated weaving by CCA MFA student Kate Nartker. I’ve my friend and equally talented artist, Toyin to thank for this mind-blowing discovery. Having been dabbling in some weaving recently during my limited free time, I can only imagine how many hours, days, and months Nartker spends creating just a few frames of animation. P.S. You’ll want to full screen these
